SALAYA BEACH HOUSES, NEGROS, PHILIPPINES
The Salaya Beach Houses are located on the quiet beach of Dauin with black volcanic sand in the midst of the Visayan Islands. The intimate retreat offers nine apartments and penthouses, as well as perfect yoga, diving and snorkelling opportunities.
Dauin is considered among divers to be the ultimate “muck diving” Mecca. The name comes from the sediment, which can be found at the bottom of many local dive sites and often has a muddy consistency. This environment is a perfect habitat for unusual and exotic marine creatures.
The Salaya Beach Houses are located in the southeast of Negros, about 20 kilometres away from the island capital Dumagute, on a sandy beach with black volcanic sand. Dumaguete airport is about 20 kilometres away.
Salaya Beach Houses is a charming beach retreat with only nine spacious apartments and penthouses with luxurious amenities and a contemporary yet very warm and welcoming interior design. Next to the narrow beach with black volcanic sand, an extensive pool with sun loungers invites to swim and relax.
Meals are served either in the restaurant or open-air next to the pool. Regional and international delicacies are freshly prepared in the kitchen. To protect the environment, the resort does not use plastic straws. A happy hour is offered every evening and there is live music once a week in the evening at the bar.
Divers and photographers with a passion for small details will find a variety of unusual macro critters, while excursions to the nearby Apo Island cater to those looking for fantastic wall diving with healthy corals and large schools of fish. On land, Salaya Beach Houses offers yoga classes both in its own yoga studio and on the shore of the beach with black, volcanic sand. Adventurous minds will enjoy exploring the natural beauty of Negros by bike, try to find their balance on a standup paddle board (SUP) or dash down the Tierra Alta on a 600 meter long zip line.
