Our Glamping Experience at Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort

PHILTOA Central Visayas Fam Trip Day 5 – Previous Post : Siquijor: The Mystical Island

It was almost 5pm when we arrived at Santander port. After loading our bags in the jeepney’s top load, we proceeded to Oslob, where we stayed overnight. We were divided into two groups. The first group will be staying in the town of Oslob, while our group will be staying at Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort.

Although we will be on the island for an overnight stay, It feels good to be back on one of the most beautiful islands I’ve ever seen and experienced. Its already dark when we left the port of Sumilon, and upon arrival, we went straight to the lakeside area for our buffet dinner. We’ve been eating for the past couple of days, but the seafood served in Sumilon was definitely unforgettable. Among all the food available in the spread, our favorite was their Seafood Chowder… I had two servings:)

I planned to update my blog that night, but the island’s Internet connection was not available, and since everyone planned to try out the infinity pool, I decided to join them and enjoy the warm water. We all enjoyed the pool until the rain poured like there was no tomorrow, so we decided to have a shortstop in the Gazeebo to enjoy a cup of tea. Then we headed to our own glampsite to experience Glamping in Sumilon.

What is Glamping?

Glamorous camping or glamping, in short, is basically camping with the luxury of fine linen, really comfortable beds, a closet, electricity, and a minibar. It’s camping without having to worry about intruders… Why? The area is secured by 3 graveyard security guards to ensure everyone is safe. Forget about smelly sleeping bags and insect-infested ground. Glamping is here to let you experience nature and sleep in the wild most comfortably.

Everything has to go back to basic, but with holidaymakers used to their charming accommodation, there was a sudden demand for Glamping. For the unfamiliar, Glamping is simply enjoying the great outdoors while having a touch of luxury at the same time.

We had a short but comfortable sleep in their Glamping Camp. Due to so much excitement for our next activity, I woke up early and was greeted by a colorful sunrise right in front of our glamping site. After breakfast, we headed to the town of Oslob for your Tuki Adventure.
