Buddha’s Surf Resort, a Place to Stay in Siargao
It was late morning when we had arrived at the resort. After getting off from the habal-habal (motorbike) that we hired from the town proper, Chris, the resort’s manager, welcomed us before we had even set our foot inside the vicinity. That gesture feels like we were not just arriving guests but old friends awaiting to come on his humble abode.
Chris accompanied us to our room, right away. We were given fresh buko juice as welcome drinks. He might have noticed how weary we were after traveling from Surigao through a ferry boat then tricycle and habal-habal from Dapa port to get to the resort. But shortly after seeing our room and our beds for our entire stay, the tiredness had faded. Suddenly, we were torn between island activities and staycation.
Room rate per night starts from PHP 2,200 which is inclusive of breakfast. You can get to choose from pancakes, cereals, bread toast, omelette and rice meal. We had the well favoured breakfast meals from the menu – Filipino breakfast meal that comes with corned beef, rice and a slice of fresh mango and the Surfer’s Breakfast that comes with two eggs, two bread toasts, bacon and a slice of fresh mango.
The resort has its own restaurant that specializes in Thai cuisine. We had tried Pad Thai and Green Chicken curry during one of our dinners. The food absolutely satisfied my cravings for Thai food.
Buddha’s Surf Resort is truly an ideal place to stay for travellers searching for good island feel. Comforting ambiance, relaxing atmosphere and laid-back feel are exactly one’s after when going for an island vacation – and indeed the resort has all of these good vibes that one’s desire. Our stay was truly a time off that we’ve been longing for. Days of de-stressing in an island far away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
