Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort: Distinctly Filipino

With the Filipino hospitality at the heart of its foundation, Sumilon Bluewater is synonymous to Filipino brand to me. From the warm reception at Oslob mainland, you can feel the warm accommodating staff of Bluewater. The trademark of a true-Blue Cebuano hospitality above all it is distinctly Filipino. It was surreal to be at the private resort the resort which I just fantasize is where I am walking on now.  Welcoming us is none other that the big bosses of Bluewater is a bonus. I first head off to the iconic infinity pool of the luxury resort and see it myself. 

Personally this is my favorite spot in the luxurious resort island. 

Sumilon Bluewaters is an island packed with activities for visitors and clients who wishes to have a day tour of the island like ourselves. Luckily, we got ourselves a former employee of Bluewater and a blogger friend JL of to show us around. With many activities like kayaking at the emerald  mangrove surrounded  lagoon, a close encounter with the school of fish at the Fish feeding area, go to the iconic shifting sandbar of Sumilon, go swimming with a plethora of fishes in the  underwater garden of Sumilons diving site or spend an idyllic time at the most photograph part of Sumilon Bluewaterthe infinity pool. To add to the list, you can burn up some calories hike up to see one of the few remaining 18th century Baluarte and get a vantage view of the whole island. But my favorite part of all, is enjoying a tranquil time and the soothing warm hands of my massage at the bay.

Showcasing more of the trademark of true-Blue Cebuano craft, I think the best way to enjoy it is through its food which I full enjoyed the feast they have prepared. It was a wide array of mouth-watering viands of international cuisine along with Filipino comfort foods. I also enjoy the sinfully sweet desserts from tarts , brownies , red velvet etc plus the fresh tropical fruits. Quenching my thirst is the signature Sumilon Bluewater Pandan Lemon grass cooler.
