Badian Island Wellness Resort in Zaragosa Island in Badian, Cebu, is giving its guests a taste of what other things this town can offer.

Badian has captured the hearts of local and foreign risk-takers and thrill-seekers, serving them with action-packed activities. But amidst all these energy-draining adventures, a tranquil resort thrives in an island that’s a few minutes boat ride away from the mainland Badian.

Badian Island Wellness Resort gives a contrast of what the town is already known for: a gentler and quieter way of living the Badian lifestyle.

This is the only resort in the small island near the southwest coast of Cebu. Its main concept revolves around the pursuit of health and well-being and the quest to bring us back in harmony with nature. The fact that it’s away from the city crowd makes the island an almost-pollution free haven, treating everyone with a literal breath of fresh air.

While here, you can fill yourself with the joy of living the island life – peaceful, tropical, natural. It flaunts a picturesque scenery of the Badian Bay and the mountain ranges of Cebu. Feel the heat of the sun while strolling around their white sand shores, or dive into the inviting sea and let the sublime feeling of infinite refreshment drown you.

The entire place dispenses nothing but pure positive vibes and a relaxing ambiance.

ONE-OF-A-KIND ACCOMMODATION

Designed with wooden floorings, the rooms and suites at Resort Badian Island is a showcase of the traditional and modern Philippine décor blended to produce elegant yet homey accommodation. The aesthetics are well-complemented with an overlooking view of the lagoons and the mountains from its private balconies.  

There is even a place here, the Thalasso Pool Villa, with a private pool containing ionized seawater that is released from a built-in waterfall and equipped with a swim jet system for an ultimate relaxing dip.

SOOTHING THE SOULS:

HE SPA VILLAGE, YOGA ACTIVITIES AND THALASSO WATERFALLS

Calming our senses is one thing that is guaranteed in this island resort. Our fast-paced lifestyle and the noisy environment in the city have sandwiched us in between stress and pressure. We know that in order to diffuse some of the steam, we need to submit ourselves to a relaxing knead on our backs.

The Spa Village in Badian Island Wellness Resort allows you to choose from a variety of massage, wellness, and Thalasso treatments incorporated with aromatic essential oils and caring hands of their professional spa therapists. Massage by the beach, why not? They offer Badian Deluxe Four-Hand Massage, Warm Seaweed Bath, Seaweed Massage, and Pure Virgin Coconut Oil Massage.

You can also join their yoga and meditation sessions and let go of all the things that cloud your mind. Release hidden stress and tension from your system and achieve relaxed continence by synchronizing each movement with systematic breathing known as Vinsayas.

One of the highlights too in this resort is its Thalasso Waterfalls and pools brimming with Ionized seawater. The water contains a complex blend of natural minerals and antibacterial properties. Submersion in this type of water promotes relaxation and is proven to rebalance the body’s mineral deficiencies.
