Upon the recommendation of an officemate, I checked out Bravo Beach Resort’s website and was very much impressed with the resort’s aesthetics. I’m no architect so the best way I can describe the place would be: clean, refreshing and simple yet tasteful.

See? It was hard not fall in love at first sight, so I booked a room for two pax in an instant. I was hoping to get a Double Room which was priced at P3,400/night, but I was told that all double rooms were fully booked on our travel dates.

Given this, we got a Garden Room instead. Pricier at P4,500/night, but significantly larger as it has its own mini garden, a terrace and a loft which can accommodate three more people. Too bad we weren’t able to use the loft at all.

A nice initiative from Bravo: Our room came with a big water bottle, refillable any time at their restaurant for free during our stay.

Another highlight of this room was the large semi-open shower which we found uncomfortable to bathe in at first, to be honest (lol). But upon our inspection, we confirmed that you won’t really be seen butt-naked by folks coming from the garden entrance since the shower area is elevated. 😉

Aside from the beautiful architecture, what really made us love Bravo even more was the food. Everything we ate there was SO GOOD, no exaggerations. We ate at Kermit once and yes while the pizza was worth the two-hour wait (the queue for a table was a bit wild when we went), Bravo’s Taco Poblano and Peri-Peri made us realize that nothing beats home-cooked meals—CHAR feeling home agad ang Bravo! LOL. Pero seryoso, ANG SARAP ng food dito!

L-R: Taco Poblano (I miss this already!!), Complimentary breakfast (Panalo!), Veggie Burger (First time to try this and it was surprisingly good as well)

The food was so good that we invited our new friend Scott, who we met at the tours we joined, to celebrate his birthday here!

They also have a small dipping pool that’s perfect to chill in after a long day of island hopping. It’s right in front of the restaurant, amidst coconut trees that complete the island life vibe.

So chill atmosphere, check. Nice room, check. Good food, check. What else can we add to make Bravo the perfect accommodation of choice when in Siargao? A beautiful beachfront that offers a wonderful view of the sunrise, and pastel skies during sunset.

Bravo Beach Resort has everything you would want from a resort, and more. Our stay may be quite short, but it was enough for us to fall in love with the place so hard, that we promise to come back soon.
