We stayed at Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort for our first night in the Visayas as it was very close to Oslob. We were also encouraged by the reasonable rates and positive feedback from friends who have already been to Bluewater.
Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort is a private island in the middle of the sea so we first had to take a boat from Bluewater's jump off point in Oslob to the resort. We were welcomed at the port with cool refreshments, exactly what we needed on a hot summer day.

They have a strict boat schedule which can be seen here. Plan your trip based on the schedule to avoid paying a fee.
The trip to the island from the mainland is just 15 minutes.
Upon arrival, I couldn't believe what greeted us: Powdery white sand beach and the most beautiful shades of the deep blue sea.
We spent most of our time in the island swimming at this strip of paradise:
From the back part of the island, we were transported to the main lobby using this small car.
A staff welcomed and oriented us about the different facilities of the resort.
We explored the island in no time:

We booked a deluxe room at Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort.
The room was spacious and clean, making our stay very comfortable.
Admittedly, the room isn't equipped with the most modern of equipment but we were in a secluded island after all.

I certainly enjoyed the experience and was impressed by the warm service and picturesque landscape of Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort. I would recommend the resort to beach babies who are looking for alternatives to Boracay or Palawan.
My next post will be about the food at Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort.
