During the 7th Siargao International Gamefishing Tournament from April 24 to 28, 2014 organized by One Corporate Grand Tours, I stayed at Bayud Beach Resort, a private enclave located along a deserted stretch of coastline at the town of General Luna. Located far away from the town center within a quiet seaside village, the resort’s location obviously has its pros and cons. While its remoteness makes it a bit inconvenient to visit town or catch public transportation, it lends to the relaxed and exclusive atmosphere of the complex on the other hand.

The deluxe room I stayed in was clean and spacious with a slightly rustic charm owing to its wood furnishings. The plated meals, which consisted chiefly of locally caught seafood, were homey and delicious. I particularly liked their calamares. Meals were dished out at the central dining area fronting the swimming pool, with splendid views of the coconut-lined beachfront.

This beautiful resort is an ideal setting for a laid-back honeymoon, family reunion, or office outing, where people can enjoy the company of their family or friends in a natural environment. The villas and rooms are surrounded by lush tropical gardens. And true to the resort’s name – which means “wave” in the Surigaonon dialect – the Pacific Ocean rumbled on distant tidal flats. I enjoyed walking down this coralline beach, passing by the next-door luxury resort. I made it all the way to the next village where I met three children catching mantis shrimps to bring home for dinner.
