NESTLED ON A WHITE sandy beach amidst the northern tropical landscape in Cebu is a hidden gem. Land, sea and sky blend seamlessly to form the postcard-perfect backdrop of Kandaya Resort, an idyllic destination located in historic Daanbantayan that offers an enviable mix of serenity, adventure, relaxation and tradition to reinvigorate the body, mind and spirit.
A picturesque beachfront oasis dotted by swaying trees await guests after a scenic drive from the city. Sprawling gardens lead to Kandaya's main building with 18 contemporary rooms and suites overlooking the resort's iconic infinity pool. A leisurely walk further into the resort will reveal 22 secluded garden, beach and ocean villas, some with their own private pools. Located in another area is its signature Kusina restaurant and bar, which serves wholesome, organic and nutritious meals.
Be spoilt for choice at Kandaya where one may opt to engage in wellness, outdoor and sports activities, or simply luxuriate and soak in the tranquillity. Amenities include a fully equipped gym, yoga studio and mixed martial arts centre as well as a multi-use court. Pamper yourself at the Daya Spa and let skillful, healing hands bring back a state of balance and well-being. Bask under the sun and enjoy the beauty of nature with Kandaya’s menu of family-friendly water sports and recreational activities. The only horseback riding facility within a resort, the Kuwadra and its Pony Club offer guided and independent riding and give kids educational and arts and crafts fun. For added adventure, delight in the turquoise waters on kayak, jet ski or Hobie Cat, or outrigger boat rides to nearby Malapascua Island. Cap off the day at the resort with sandy toes and a glass of champagne or signature cocktail while enjoying stunning sunset views.
