ATLANTIS DUMAGUETE RESORT
With so many resorts to choose from, of very varying quality, we have been very careful in our selection, choosing a resort which combines the very best western management with superb Indo-Pacific diving and service. Atlantis Dumaguete Resort is a PADI Five Star resort with first class accommodation. The resort not only offers wonderful diving but also gracious hospitality and the security of knowing you are diving with a truly competent and professional outfit.
After your arrival at Manila Airport a local resort representative will assist you with the transfer to the domestic terminal and help you check in for your flight to Dumaguete. You will be met at Dumaguete airport and transferred by air-conditioned vehicle to the resort. Upon arrival at the resort you will be greeted by the friendly staff and offered a welcome drink as your bags are taken to your room for you. An extra special touch is the welcome massage by the spa staff of the resort.
The resort is located on a quiet beach just outside Dumaguete, directly on the waterfront, with a seafront restaurant and bar. The atmosphere is serene and relaxed, with lots of shaded areas and seating beneath mature foliage – a true hideaway and an ideal location for a romantic getaway or a haven from the stresses of modern life. All rooms are designed to offer you maximum comfort, privacy and an opportunity to relax. The en-suite, air-conditioned rooms and suites are situated throughout the resort gardens. They are both ground floor and first floor, and all have climate controlled air-conditioning, fully stocked mini-bars, ceiling fans, solar heated hot water, cable TV with movie and sports channels, coffee and tea making facilities, wireless internet connections and DVD players. Deluxe Rooms have either a double bed or twin beds. The Seaview Rooms are smaller rooms right on the beach, so you can wake up to the sound of the sea if you wish. The Garden Suites are larger and more spacious, have attractive furnished balcony, and either a double bed or twin beds. The Seaview Suite is very similar but as the name suggests, sea views can be enjoyed form the large balcony. The Deluxe Garden Suite has a king size bed and two flat screen televisions as well as a separate living room and private garden. The resort has its own swimming pool in the gardens and you can enjoy sunbathing or perhaps take a massage round the pool. The Massage Room has an authentic sauna imported from Finland, a Jacuzzi and offers a full spa service including manicures, pedicures, body scrubs and fabulous aromatherapy massage. Wifi is available throughout the resort.
Toko’s Restaurant prides itself on coming up with a unique dining experience using fresh local products and flavours. A daily changing menu is offered for lunch and dinner. Oven fresh bread, homemade breakfast, catch of the day, superb roasts, prime beef, aromatic and hot curries, freshly picked tropical fruits and vegetables all add up to Lonely Planet describing the restaurant as having “world class cuisine”. There is great emphasis on cleanliness in the kitchen and the kitchen itself has been specially imported from Germany and the staff trained in health and safety to avoid those stomach problems that can be encountered when Europeans visit Asia.
The entire resort is built within a wonderful tropical garden with many rare and indigenous plants, trees and birds. The full time gardeners are proud of their garden and keep it very well tended. Take a stroll around the resort. Admire the lotus blossoms in the fish ponds, enjoy the sweet aroma of the local flowers and relax…
A small shop sells local jewellery, sarongs and practical items such as sunscreen. You will find a complete range of dive equipment and computer accessories offered amongst the local art, travel books, fish ID guides and postcards.
Four day boat dives, as well as Mandarinfish dusk dives and night dives are offered daily and there is a wonderful range of dive sites to choose from. Divers are encouraged to discus their diving requirements with the dive guides so that they can try to fulfil diver expectations. With a maximum of 6 divers to each dive guide, and most dive sites just 10 minutes from the resort along with a choice of longer day trips makes this resort an excellent choice for the keen diver. Fluoro night diving is a must! Private diving trips can be arranged. Photographers will find the superbly equipped camera room indispensible. Here you will find multi-sockets for charging, a matted workbench with good lighting, laptop and camera storage facilities, air guns, internet facilities and CD/DVD burning facilities.
