Summer Trip

My sisters woke up on the early morning of May 5 to get ready for our summer getaway. The plan was to go to Bluewaters Resort at the Island Garden City of Samal.

Going there was a breeze. If you have your own car, you can take the barge. You can also take a 10-minute boat ride to the resort from Insular Hotel's Pirata Bar. Transportation is affordable at P150 (lump-sum if the passengers do not reach 10 persons) or P15 per head (if the passengers reach more than 10). The boat is available from 7 am and the last trip will be at 4:30 pm.

Bluewaters is like a semi-private place, different from the neighboring resorts jam-packed with people. At Bluewaters, you can find solace at their reasonably-priced picnic huts and facilities. The saltwater pool is also a plus (specially during low tide).

Check the pictures below to have a taste of Bluewaters Resort:

This is the small picnic hut priced at P150.00 good for 10 persons... There are also large picnic huts at P300 good for 20 persons. If you want to stay overnight, they have cottages and furnished rooms to accommodate you and your family.

Aside from its really friendly service, the rates are also very affordable. Entrance fee is only P70 and the pool rate is P50. Experience Fun Under the Sun!
