Jumpstart Your Day: A Must-See Tropical Getaway in Siargao

Time to save up and work on your Summer plans


As early as now, many of us are already booking flights and checking out resorts in preparation for this year's epic summer sojourn. With our country's famous 7,107 islands—where do you plan to go? If you're planning something extra special this year, then we found just the right refuge for you!

Get your savings ready and let Dedon Island take your breath away. Only three hours away from Manila, this paradise is located at the southeastern tip of reef-ringed Siargao—near the Philippine Deep and the famous surfing wave, Cloud 9.

There's so much to love about this calming escape. Aside from being included in StumbleUpon's list of must-visit hotels, Dedon Island sits perfectly between ancient mangroves and the clear waters of the sea. 

As its website says, Dedon Island is true magic—with nature, architecture, and design coming together to create a one-of-a-kind experience for its guests. 

The team behind it highlights that the place is more than just a hotel. It's an Outdoor Living Lab, where they do experiments on outdoor design and organic local farming, to be able to achieve their goal of a sustainable paradise where people can retreat and rejuvenate.

Dedon Island features The Village with an infinity pool, pavilions facing the sea, hanging pods when you want to take a break from your activities, an outdoor bar, and even a library, to name a few.

Meanwhile, The Villas highlight the use of local materials and exceptional craftsmanship. All nine villas seem to blend with nature and the island's lush surroundings.

Each villa has a huge veranda, windows that let the sunlight in, and an open layout that allows you to embrace the outdoors. There are three villas to choose from—Deluxe, Superior Family, and Superior.

Aside from the amenities and memorable experience, Dedon Island also offers adventures and activities such as mangrove-exploring, snorkeling, surfing, and sailing, to name a few. Click here to view the list.

Planning to book a stay? Management suggests that it's best to visit the island during dry season—from April to October. To learn more about the island and to view the rates, click here.
