The invite to visit Daanbantayan came when things were quite stressful and nerve-wracking both at work and at home. I needed a break. A quick drive out of the city would’ve been enough but this turned out to be just what I needed. I actually prayed for this and I was rather surprised when it became a reality this quick. A day to let loose and just relax in a quiet property in Daanbantayan. The sun shining, the breeze slowly caressing my face, my feet buried in the sand — what could be more amazing?
Was the five-hour motorcycle trip from Cebu City to the town of Daanbantayan in Northern Cebu worth it? Of course, it was!
Golden Sands Destination Resorts is a new beach resort in Daanbatayan. It is set to open this year or early next year.
The massive property is located in Sitio Suba in Barangay Maya. Yes, it’s just a few minutes away from the Maya Wharf where you get on a boat to reach the island of Malapascua.
Golden Sands Destination Resorts boasts of a beautiful, uninterrupted white beach and a huge natural lake which sits smack dab in the middle of the property.
The resort has plenty of open spaces which can accommodate hundreds of guests at a time. While still being actively developed, the resort now looks more than ready to accept and satisfy guests.
They say that the beach brings out different sides of you that you never thought was there. I never knew I was a natural model. Hahaha!
Sun beds and cottages are placed in various parts of the beach, located a considerable distance from each other, to ensure that guests get to enjoy their own space in peace and quiet.
Take this guest, for example! Haha.
The best part of it all was the beautiful sunset that greeted me just before I started packing my things. It was beautiful!
Before I even left the resort, I was already sure I would definitely come back. I know I always hope for the best, but I’m pretty sure that there would be days that would make me want to go back to the beach and just sit still and not have to worry about a thing.
