Sangat Island Dive Resort, which opened its doors to the general public in 1994, occupies quite nearly the entire southwestern cusp of Sangat Island. Now you can rent this perfect little slice of paradise entirely for one group at a time to exclusively enjoy native-styled, ecologically “low-impact” accommodations, restaurant and bar facilities, and an internationally-renowned water sports and scuba diving center.

Sangat island is totally off the grid and fully independent when it comes to electricity and water supply, as well as food supply including fresh fish or shellfish, and meat and vegetables directly from the farm on the island. In efforts to be green and clean, the island uses Solar power as a form of renewable energy. Sangat Island Dive Resort is the only resort in the Philippines that is 100% powered by Solar energy and only uses diesel powered generators during cloudy days. The 30 KW solar power system is capable of powering the whole resort including all the air compressors, desalination plant (fresh water source), ice makers and refrigeration.

Edged by a 300-meter span of white sand beachfront, postcard-perfect tropical waters, and coral reef gardens brimming with sea life, Sangat Island Dive Resort has become, in just a few short years, one of the premier resort destinations for eco-conscious paradise-seekers and scuba diving enthusiasts the world over. One of its more extraordinary aspects is that it offers its scuba diving clientele close proximity to eleven World War II era wrecks. Ten of these wrecks are historically significant Japanese War and Supply ships sunk by American forces during the “Battle of Coron Bay” in 1944. Of these ten World War II wreck sites, eight have found their final resting place a scant 5 to 30 minute boat ride from the resort's beachfront!

Accommodations

Sangat Island Dive Resort offers a wide variety of native-styled accommodations including Beachfront Cottages, Beachside Chalets, Hillside Cottages, family-friendly Bungalow Suite units, Hilltop Chalets and the largest and most exclusive accommodation, the tri-level, two-bedroom Lambingan Villa with its own private, white sand beachfront. 

For the truly solitary-minded, the island also has one very unique accommodation: The Robinson Crusoe Cottage. This one-bedroom structure, situated off-resort on it’s own isolated white sand beachfront on the southeastern coast of Sangat Island is available on an exclusive, specially arranged, 4-week or longer contract. Due to its isolated, rustic location, this accommodation is perfectly suited to an author devising their next master work or anyone else with a desire for maximum “time alone” without worry of being interrupted by outside intrusions.

In keeping with the extraordinary beauty of the island, all resort accommodations have been constructed according to the durable, time-honored techniques of local native artisans and laboriously assembled from the finest, locally-available materials including hand-woven bamboo wall panels, split-bamboo flooring, and Cogon Grass or Nipa Palm roofing.

All accommodations are also well ventilated by large mosquito-netted windows and include ceiling fans, ample lighting, 220-volt electrical outlets and western-styled bathroom facilities.

Restaurant and Bars

The resort's open-air, beach-side restaurant facility and two full-service bars offer a wide selection of tasty regional and international dishes – as well as a many satisfying beverage options – throughout the day and well into the evening.

Sangat Island Dive Resort is situated on a private island with only one restaurant that prepares fresh, healthy and delicious global fusion cuisine. Vegetarians or those with other special dietary needs can also be easily accommodated (please inform before arrival so the kitchen can be prepared).

Each of the restaurant's buffet dishes are meticulously prepared from the freshest ingredients including just-off-the-boat seafood delicacies, chicken and pork entrees, colorful and nutritious vegetable and salad options as well as many delicious tropical fruits.

In addition to the fixed buffet meal schedule, you may also order an assortment of snack selections and refreshments sure to satisfy any between-buffet cravings. Picnic lunches can also be prepared for island trekking adventures, or Island Hopping excursions.

After a hard day at play, The Sangat Island Bar and spectacular over-water Rock Bar – both providing an ample selection of international libations, wines, and world-famous San Miguel beer – provide the perfect venue to share the days’ adventures, or just unwind.

Resort Activities

From aquatic activities like scuba diving and kayaking, to land-based adventures including island trekking and rock climbing, to off-island experiences via exclusive Island Hopping expeditions, you’ll find plenty of things to do, places to explore and memories to make during your visit.

Additional resort-centric activities also include paddle boarding and sailing, kayaking, a visit to the relaxing geo-thermal hot springs, native massage services, and more.

If you are an experienced scuba diver – or are interested in learning how to scuba dive – then the island's world-class diving and watersports center will most likely be one of your most frequent hang-outs during your visit.

Can’t decide which scuba or snorkeling site to explore first? Thinking about learning to scuba? No problem. The island's knowledgeable dive center attendants and on-site PADI instructors are happy to help you with equipment selection, scuba course options, dive site recommendations, and more.
