Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort

Helloooo guys! 2 weeks ago my family and I went on a short trip to Cebu and Bohol. Every year we make it a point to travel to a local tourist destination that we haven't travelled to as a family. Since we haven't been to Cebu and Bohol yet we decided to book our family trip there. I was in charge of the whole itinerary. We didn't availed the usual planned tour from agencies because I have specific target places and activities that I want to go and try in Cebu. I proposed an itinerary to my family where I listed everything that both the oldies and teens would enjoy. One place that I listed there is a day tour at Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort. I heard and knew about the place through reading other blogs. I got interested and put it in my bucket list to visit if given the chance to travel to Cebu. 
Going to Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort is no joke. If you're impatient with long travels I'm sure you're not up for this kind of trip. I was expecting already a long travel time and I briefed already my family of what to expect especially the oldies so that I wouldn't hear rants. Hahaha! Our Day 1 was spent exploring Southern Cebu. We arrived at 2:20 am in Mactan Airport, fetched by the van at 2:30 am and traveled 3-4 hours just to get to Oslob. When we got to Oslob by 5:30 am we changed into swimming attires and did the 2 activities in our itinerary. Imagine how tired we looked during that time. Haha! (I have a separate post for this!) 
By 11:00 am we were already at the mainland bancogon of Bluewater Sumilon. We waited until 11:30 am for the other tourists to arrive. It was a 15 minute bangka ride from the mainland to the island resort. Our day tour is valued at 1,500 pesos per head. It already includes roundtrip boat transfers from Mainland-Sumilon Island-Mainland, Island activities like kayaking, snorkeling (free use of mask and snorkel), island trekking and fish feeding, use of resort facilities including the beach, infinity pool and payags, and lastly, the international lunch buffet. I was able to take advantage of everything except the island trekking. We chose to rest and just relax in the resort after the long travel time that we had. 
There were only few tourists during our stay there so we were able to take advantage of the whole resort. Most of the oldies rested and slept in the cabanas while we (teens!) went jacuzzi hopping. Of course, we also took a lot of photos from different spots. Ang daming pang blog at pang IG! Hahaha!    
My favorite spot in the resort. My cousins and I had it all by ourselves. 
The resort offered an international buffet lunch. We were with a lot of different nationalities during our stay and it looked like our family was the only group of Filipinos there.. The foods were delicious and I still went back twice to grab some sweets and fruits! Hihihi
We also tried kayaking. I was with my brother when we went racing with my tito. Our kayak almost turned upside down! Haha! I didn't thought of it as scary but funny instead!!! :)

Outfit. During our afternoon stay in the resort, I wore my new floral maxi dress from Rosegal. Good thing it arrived before our trip to Cebu! The dress is really cute (ruffled and high low trim + cold shoulder style + floral design!) and breezy (and comfy!!!). If you want to purchase this dress too you may click THIS or you may head on to Rosegal's website for more finds. They have a lot of new stuffs like their black turtleneck dress! Check it out! :)
Bluewater Sumilon, you were beautiful!!! If ever you're visiting Cebu give this island resort a try. They have friendly staffs to accommodate you. :)
