I visit the Philippines regularly for business and often spend a couple of nights at the end of my trip to relax, do some diving, snorkelling and relax by the beach. This is the nicest resort I have found in the Philippines for all of the above. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Superb European management living on site are...

Had a wonderful time at the Blue Orchid in May 2016, All of the staff were very welcoming and great at providing any information you may require. The rooms are very large but basic you won't find a TV but who needs one when you can sit on the balcony and look out into the sea! Loved the food we...

Thank you for your review. We are really happy to read that you've enjoyed the views, the food and the coconut shakes in the resort and of course that you liked our house reef for snorkeling. Hope too see you again!

We stayed at the Blue Orchid for four nights and it didn't disappoint. The resort sits on the edge of a reef, with step access directly into the crystal water. The surroundings are so picturesque end secluded. The snorkelling here is incredible-we saw massive sea turtles just outside the doorstep! Richard was so helpful and friendly, he organised a boat...

It's not a fancy and snazzy place. It's homely with a huge family room. Room and surrounding was clean and food is cooked with love in its small kitchen. This is a long overdue review. Our family of two boys, one teen and one preschooler, went sometime in June 2015. What made this place memorable is not its decor nor...

It's true. They don't have TVs in the room unless it's the honeymoon suite and some rooms don't even have a table/desk with chair inside. No hair dryer, slippers, shower gel, and the usual toiletries. BUT when you come to a place like this, do not spend your time inside the room. Sip a cup of tea on the balcony,...

The Blue Orchid Resort was recommended to us by friends as a really relaxed and friendly place to visit and they weren't wrong! Working in Cebu city for a few weeks, we decided to spend the final weekend of our trip in Moalboal. We took a Ceres liner bus from Cebu (would recommend one of the aircon ones if possible!)...

Getting to and from Moalboal on the island of Cebu requires some time and can be quite the experience (don't hesitate taking the non-aircon-bus in Cebu City, if you're in for an 4h-adventure!). But let me tell you: after arriving at The Blue Orchid Resort, you'll soon discover it is all worth the effort. Lovely Michele and enthusiast Steven welcome...

The place was gorgeous, the staff welcomed us with open arms and the views were spectacular. We stayed for three nights and on the third night we upgraded to the honeymoon suite so my husband I can get some alone time, and it was the best decision we ever made.

I planned to propose during these holidays. After finding this place on Tripadvisor, I decided to contact Lisa and Bill to see if they had some good ideas about some places where I could propose. They were so excited by the idea that they helped me to arrange everything in advance and in a way I couldn't have dreamt of!...

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
