Located on Cagraray island in Albay Province this exclusive 5-hectare private island resort awaits those who seek a balance of tranquility and adventure. With beach access and 3 pools, spa and fitnes center

Experience an unique phenomenon hard to find in other parts of the world: world’s biggest fish, the whaleshark, a gentle giant that can be as long as 8 meters and weigh 40 tons. Watch them ponderously glide alongside your boat or choose to swim along with a “Butanding”- or even several – some 10 of them at any one time on lucky days. They converge in the tropical waters near Sorsogon Province from November – June with peak sittings in February – May due to the abundance of plankton during these months.


Note: Itinerary might change depending on local weather conditions. Rates subject to change and not valid on super peak dates.
