SANGAT ISLAND DIVE RESORT


An aerial view of the stunning Sangat Island Dive Resort (Sangat)

Sangat Island Dive Resort, which opened it's doors to the general public in 1994, occupies quite nearly the entire south-western cusp of Sangat Island. To date, this perfect little slice of paradise offers our guests fourteen native-styled, ecologically "low-impact" accommodations, restaurant and bar facilities, and an internationally-renowned water sports and scuba diving center.

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 the more extraordinary aspects that Sangat Island Dive Resort offers it's scuba diving clientele involves the island's 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 our beachfront!

Accommodation

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 our largest and most exclusive accommodation, the tri-level, two-bedroom Lambingan Villa with its own private, white sand beachfront.

In keeping with the extraordinary beauty of our 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.

Three buffet meals and coffee/tea are included in the price of each accommodation.

Restaurant and Bars

Our 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.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included in the price of your accommodation and are served in a friendly buffet-styled environment. Each scheduled buffet frequently features fresh seafood dishes, savory chicken and pork entrees, plenty of vegetable options and fresh tropical fruit.

After a hard day at play, The Sangat Island Bar and our 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 make new friends, share the days’ adventures, or just unwind.
