Inspired by nature and the local culture, the Oasis Resort on Panglao blends perfectly into its beautiful garden surroundings. With helpful staff, comfortable accommodation, an onsite diving centre and an ideal beachside location, it’s the perfect choice for a family or group with both divers and non-divers.
At the heart of Panglao’s white sand Alona Beach area is the charming Oasis Dive Resort. Set back from the beach amidst gardens teeming with flowers, tropical plants and shady trees, the resort is a literal oasis of peace and calm. This boutique resort was originally built to provide accommodation for the divers of the Seaquest Dive Center and the developers succeeded in their aim of preserving the natural beauty of its tropical environment. The onsite dive centre is also a big plus from a convenience point of view. Perfect for families, the resort also enjoys two restaurants and two bars, a comfortable garden lounge and swimming pool.
The core of the resort is a lush garden that houses air-conditioned bungalows built in the traditional design. The original bungalows each have two rooms and face the swimming pool. With a private balcony, and private bathroom with hot and cold water, they are comfortable and spacious. In 2013, the resort constructed a new air-conditioned building in the garden area that houses four superdeluxe rooms and a honeymoon suite-room on the second floor. These rooms all face the swimming pool and are comfortable and spacious with a private balcony, and private bathroom with hot and cold water.
The 6 standard rooms are the least expensive rooms, but are certainly not ordinary! The standard rooms are situated in the garden area and around the pool. The rooms are perfect for singles or for a couple of friends. The rooms offer 2 single beds and are equipped with an air-conditioning and/or fan.
The 10 spacious Deluxe rooms are bright and cozy residences with a beautiful view of the pool or the resort’s tropical garden. All the bungalows have a spacious balcony with seats. The Deluxe bungalows are bigger than the Standard rooms and offer 1 queen-size bed and one single bed and pullout bed. These rooms are suitable for a family with two children.
Facing the Bohol Sea, these 6 spacious two-story rooms are located 20 meters from the beach and provide ocean views from a furnished balcony. The Deluxe Room with Sea view offers a comfortable area for reading or relaxing. On the ground floor you can find the modern bathroom with shower. The rooms offer one queen size bed on the first floor and a single bed and pull out bed on the ground floor.
The 4 Super Deluxe rooms are a great place to shift your vacation into relaxation. One queen bed, one single bed, beautiful décor and a flat screen TV make your room a private getaway. Pull back the curtains to let in the sunshine and enjoy the beautiful view on the pool and the garden.
The suite is a sophisticated and luxury retreat for travellers who enjoy the finer pleasures that life has to offer. This elegant and spacious suite combines the beauty of a Philippine interior and stylish décor. This open-plan space integrates a sleeping and living area. The private balcony offers a beautiful view on the pool and the tropical garden and is the place where you can indulge in a little piece of paradise.
Oasis Dive Resort offers that ideal combination of beautiful surroundings, comfortable accommodation and helpful and friendly staff, always attentive if they needed a drink, information, or help of any kind. The two restaurant areas allow plenty of space to enjoy the excellent local and international cuisine, plus there is a comfortable garden lounge with cocktail bar, a beach lounge and bar, and a child-friendly swimming pool. There are sun beds on the beach to relax on at the end of the day and wifi is free throughout the resort.
A variety of relaxing or invigorating beauty and spa treatments are available in the beautiful Gazebo Spa, set in the lush garden of the resort and surrounded by beautiful trees and tropical flowers. Guests at Oasis Resort can combine their stay with the beautiful Sumisid Lodge in Moalboal, Cebu, a small and homely divers’ accommodation located in the middle of Pangsama Beach, Moalboal.
The onsite dive centre is managed by the reputable SeaQuest, one of the longest-established scuba diving operators in the Visayas. The first SeaQuest opened at Pangsama Beach in 1981 in Moalboal, followed by the second in 1990 here at Alona Beach, making it one of the first dive centres in the area. In fact, some of the dive sites are named after veteran dive masters from SeaQuest who first discovered the now well-known sites.
SeaQuest has years of experience and continues to strive towards creating a first-class Philippine dive experience for its guests. They can arrange a complete dive holiday, including island hopping, dive safaris and fun dives around Panglao and at their sister resort in Moalboal. You can do individual dives or four or five night dive safaris. Plus there are PADI scuba diving courses in multiple languages – from Bubble Maker to Assistant Instructor – equipment hire, land tours, transfers, domestic flights and all with a professional and personal touch that ensures you get the very best holiday experience.
