Plans for a vacation in Philippines

20 October 2013 - 11:21 AM

Dear fellows/friends  


After a perfect vacation in Amanwana @Moyo Island, Sumbawa during first half of October now i made a quite spontaneous decision to spend ~12 nights at an upscale resort in Philippines.


I have never been in Philippines before. And season-wise it looks like Philippines is a good choice for our planned vacation dates roughly a 12 night duration somewhere between 28/12/2013 - 14/01/2014.


Unfortunately Amanpulo at Pamalican looks like fully booked during our planned dates.


Is there any resort of similar characteristics in Philippines?


What we are looking for is:


- Upscale accommodation

- Diving with personal approach( diving 1 to 1 with a guide whenever and whereever you want)

- Relatively easy to access (like Amanpulo direct flight from Manila or at least not a lot more complicated than that)


For diving type i do not have a preference. It can be pelagic or macro. Drift or muck etc.. Only prefence from my side -  I am not a big fan of wrecks unless they do not have pelagic or macro :-)


I would appreciate in case you would provide me some alternative ideas. 



Moyo Island Diving

I ll be staying at Moyo Island, Sumbawa, Indonesia during first two weeks of September 2013.

I would be interested to hear any related experience or hints the community members might have such as essential dives to be made, lenses to be taken to the trip etc.
