The resort is right on the water. The rooms (rather sparse of furniture - in a good way) have large sliding doors that open right onto the sea. The staff is always available and amazingly helpful and accommodating. They help make lol the arrangements for multiple adventures and outings. The kitchen is absolutely fantastic and the prices are great. We...

We loved this place! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like one of the family. The resort is small but has everything you need - a lovely warm pool, amazing snorkelling and diving opportunities directly from the man made beach, delicious hearty food (huge portions!), and an excellent happy hour. The rooms are large and spotlessly...

The location was perfect and fantastic.... What a wonderful, relaxing and beautiful location. The accommodations are spectacular - so spacious and beautifully decorated. We stayed for 4 days. The bedrooms and bathrooms are neat and clean. The room has an extensive balcony overlooking the gorgeous beach. If you open the sliding door to the balcony in the master bedroom at...

We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Blue Orchid Resort. My partner and I got engaged here and the staff were lovely and accommodating, from ensuring we had a romantic private cabana overlooking the water to offering advice to my nervous fiance ahead of time! The resort is far out (3 hours from the airport) and is not super...

Guys it was an absolute pleasure to be involved in such a special occasion and quite funny to see just how nervous Mr Dundee was.. Thank you for all you wonderful comments and please keep us posted with the wedding plans. Make sure you both get your OW certification and perhaps we will see you here for the honeymoon.

From start to finish, all the staff were absolutely amazing. They went above and beyond to help us with whatever issues we had. The house reef was one of the best I've seen. Some tips are to bring mosquito repellent (you'll get eaten alive here haha) and be careful under the cabana area that faces the ocean. Theres a lizard...

Hi Val. Thanks for your comments and giving us a fantastic review. To clarify a few points for other readers, our tours can be more expensive as we use AC cars and provide lunch/fruit/teas & coffee, also towels , equipment and use of our own private Cabana for the whale shark experience. It also included the Kawasan fall tour for...

The staff is great. Probably the nicest staff ive experienced. Beautiful grounds but basic room without tv considering the price and competition. Very far from the rest of moalboal although some people might enjoy that. I talked to a local tricycle driver gave him my itenerary and that solved the isolation

Thanks for a great review. Our staff are the best around and we are proud of it. We are glad you noticed how hard they work. As from being far from Moalboal, we like that too. We have access to beautiful waters right in front of the resort we are only a 5min walk from white beach, and we enjoy...

The Blue Orchid has everything you need, fun and helpful staff and is in a beautiful quiet location. This resort is pretty secluded down a dirt road about 25-30 min ride to town, but it is quiet and lovely with good facilities. You are farther from town, but not at all stranded. The staff is super friendly and helps you...

The resort was tucked at the end of the white beach, required transport to travel in and out. This can be arranged by the helpful staff. We stayed for 3 nights, in the family suite. The room was clean but many mosquitoes, the netting was not very useful. We were doing snorkelling, discovery dive and refresher in the resort. The...

Thanks for a 5 star review... We are thrilled that you had an amazing time here with us. Unfortunately due to the time of year when we have a few rainy days there are a few mosquitoes around. We make sure that we have no pools of water and use coils, plus there is repellent for free at the bar...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our beautiful, private, seaside resort accommodation is tucked away in a secluded corner of Mac Payong, just 30 meters from the 2km White Beach. Just a short drive away from Moalboal and Panagsama, it offers a quiet, idyllic setting for your holiday. The location couldn't get any better for diving as one of the best reefs in the area is directly in front of your ocean view room. The reef is perfect for beginner divers, and also for snorkelers. However the step walls make an exhilarating dive for seasoned advanced divers. The resort's architecture is a blend of Mediterranean and native styles incorporating local stone and thatched roof with white arches and Spanish tiles. Each room has either a large arched doorway or huge glass sliding doors to provide guests with amazing ocean views. Fall asleep after a hard day's dive to the sound of gentle waves and the wind gently blowing through the yucca trees. Office hours: 8am to 8pm Email to arrange airport pickup with a minimum of 24 hour notice. Check -ins are to be arranged in advance if past or before normal office hours. ... more   less
