The Blue Star Dive Resort offers a combination of 11 garden rooms and 7 sea view bungalows for you to choose from, all with a private balcony or terrace where you can enjoy a relaxing drink at the end of a hard day’s diving. If you are looking for a relaxing day, the in-house spa offers a range of pampering treatments including “Hilot”, the Philippine traditional massage practiced for generations or you can take a dip into the resort’s purpose built swimming pool or just do some star gazing from the pool side jacuzzi.
