My friends and I went to Bluewater for the day to celebrate my birthday. After relaxing by the pool for a few hours we had a beautiful buffet lunch at the beach where the staff surprised me by bringing a cake and singing! We relaxes in the hammocks and went to the other side of the island to the sand...

Me and my husband availed the daytour of the island so that our trip to sumilon will be worth the travel. I liked the hospitality of the staff because even if we were not in- house guests and only availed the day tour, we felt very special because of the warm treatment.

I went with my husband on our honeymoon and spent four days here. It was very romantic and serene. We could look out at the balcony while eating and just enjoy the seabreeze. All their rooms are beachfront. Complimentary activities that came with the room are: (1) snorkeling with free snorkel and life-jacket rental (2) trekking with guide (although we...

After whaleshark watching, a day tour in this island resort including lunch buffet made the day for us. The lunch was good and they serve plenty of selections. Exploring the activities like kayaking and just being under the canopy of trees sleeping on a swing is so relaxing. The beach at the sandbar is white and clean, it is a...

This trip is great for those who wanted to be free from stress and the city. The surrounding is clean and the air is so refreshing. This made me forget that I'll be facing tons of work when I get back to reality. Such a wonderful place!

We stayed at the resort as our base because we really came to see the whale sharks in Oslob, Cebu. The resort is geographically a part of Cebu, but it is easier to get to it via Dumaguete, from where a boat ride of around 45 mins will take you to the resort. The whale shark and waterfall adventure was...

We went to Sumilon island with the Blue Water resort all-inclusive day tour package for 2000 pesos (1500 on weekdays). Frankly, it wasn't worth it. *It might be worth it if you can spend the entire day there (8am-5pm). We took the 11:30am boat there, and the 3:30pm boat back. The best part of the island is the sand bar...

We stayed there from October 29 to October 31. The rooms were very well appointed, spacious and clean. The staff, especially Erica and Nadezh, are accommodating and well-trained. BEWARE of the restaurant and buffet, however. The first night we ate at the buffet, nobody dished out any of the used dishes. So from soup bowls to salad plates to dinner...

Availed their day tour package for 1500 including boat transfer from Bancogon Mainland to Sumilon, lunch buffet, use of resort facilities and access to shifting sandbar! They also have activities like kayaking, trekking, fish feeding etc. Day tour was from 9AM-5PM and to be honest a day is not enough to visit!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 24-hectare coral island, located on the Southeastern tip of Cebu, is home to Bluewater Sumilon. Pristine white sand beaches abound. Its sandbar is known for its changing shapes and shifting locations around the island, depending on the season. There is a natural lagoon teeming with high mangroves. On the south side, a lighthouse rests on a protected tree park and a "Baluarte", a 19th century historical watchtower. It is also home to the Philippines' first marine sanctuary.At Bluewater Sumilon, let the islander's easy-going friendliness shine through and keep the pace low-key enough to let you feel pampered. ... more   less
