An island of indulgence and adventure

This luxury private island resort is perfect for couples seeking a romantic break. In a secluded setting, the island enjoys beautiful views and has a lovely stretch of white sand beach. The resort offers no less than eight venues for food and drink, with everything from Lebanese to Italian to authentic Filipino cuisine. There's even a wine and cheese bar for early evening nibbles. During the day you can relax around the main pool, enjoy a treatment at the over-water spa complex which comes complete with the Philippines' first authentic Arabic Hammam, or perhaps try your hand at one of the many watersports activities on offer such as kayaking, jet skiing or snorkelling. Accommodation on the island comes in the form of stand-alone villas decorated in a modern style with colourful, tropical touches. The water villas are particularly popular and each comes with an outdoor Jacuzzi® with blissful views out to sea. If you're looking for a little slice of paradise, this could definitely be it!

Stunning

Melbourne, Australia

So much is to be said about HUMA. What a beautiful spot away from it all. The island resort is in a gorgeous location, not overly hard t get to. So serene, we felt as though we were the only ones there. We lived the privacy. Facilities were excellent...Don't miss the snorkeling, gym and spa treatments. Snorkeling was amazing, (thank you to our guide, Ruel) so much to see only metres away from the resort's private beach. The massages were DIVINE. We were both so happy with our treatments. A shout out to Renelle, the therapist who did my husband's Calamansi Massage, and Nessa who did my Filipino Hilot Massage. Just perfect! There were a couple of little things that kept me from giving 5 stars..Namely, terrible internet coverage and television service (kept cutting out) But the staff are lovely, and try to help as best they can. Also, a kettle in the room would've been helpful.

Bad experience

Arrival amazing greeted with a song and dance, face washers and a fresh cool drink. First impressions were amazing, tour of our room, a guide through the activities. First night at dinner, ordered the seafood platter, they said crab wasn’t available on the menu, we asked if anything wasn’t available the waitress said only the crab. When we got the seafood platter we waited for the calamari to come out with the platter but when it didn’t arrive and we asked the waitress, she informed us it wasn’t available. when asked if we would have the cost deducted they offered us another side of chips which where actually extremely thin sliced deep fried potatoes. Upon arriving to our room that’s night had the bed turned down ready for sleep and some chocolates waiting for us which was a pleasant surprised. Woke up in the morning to a power outage as the lights in the room started flashing, Throughout the whole experience Wifi was poor almost non existent. Breakfast was great, thorough service. In the afternoon went to the boutique which was closed even though the hours were 10am to 6pm. Archery wasn’t set up, walked around the island only to find half the island was destroyed by the typhoon in 2013 still unfixed and that half of the rooms are actually empty shells and not ready for guests, it’s all a facade. Rubbish in piles all over island are an eyesore. Went to the pool for afternoon drinks walked up to bar for service which is normal. Until we waited over half an hour for drinks to be served. We witnessed the owners of the resort actually have to prompt staff to ask if we needed another round of drinks, to then the owners tapping on the window when we hadn’t been served them for over 20 minutes. Went for a drink before dinner approached the bar and gave the waitress our order, who I think was the manger came over after about 10 minutes of waiting and asked if we needed a drink we said we had ordered but were over the general wait and we were ready to just go to dinner the ‘manager’ then blamed the other staff for the issues. Dinner at their ‘Italian’ restraunt started off with incredible service followed by thin soggy, undercooked pizza. Main we ordered the lasagna and aglio e olio spaghetti with shrimp. Only to be half way through the meal to find maggots on the table ACTUAL LIVE MAGGOTS. I quietly went to the main waiter to inform him he picked up one, no one came to clear our plates or clean the table. I physically picked up all the plates and everything on the table and took it inside and asked for a cloth to clean the table I was looked at like I was crazy and asked ‘ was the bug alive’ luckily another waiter was behind me and said there are 2 more live maggots on the table and my partner filmed the maggots, we walk straight out of the restaurant. Upon checkout dinner was on bill, we requested it to be taken off. The reception staff asked if we had told the staff at the restaurant the night before which we had and also shown them the video and photo we had taken, there was no apologies, no acknowledgment the incident had even happened. Overall you pay for the view ONLY IF your facing the ocean.
