Fantastic resort, with beautiful facilities, villas, lawns, pools, a very peaceful atmosphere with great flowing energy, an unmatched quality of sleep for us again during our second stay, delicious food, interesting diving. And above all, the most distinguishing feature, extremely friendly and professional teams across the resort: reception, spa, restaurant staff, dive centre/divemasters, managers. So much work is done to make guests feel at home and in the middle of nature at the same time, it is very impressive. It was a pleasure the first time, it was fantastic the second time, a rare opportunity to reconnect with nature and recharge. Can't wait to go back!

Hi sinjinfood
Thank you for the great comments and for visiting us here in Atmosphere. You’re right, most of our diving along the coast has some awesome critters. Sometimes we’re lucky to see some pelagic marine life in Apo Island, other than the turtles of course! We hope to see you again.

Great place to take the kids, especially if the parents are divers. Although the diving is a bit more expensive than other places we've been, we appreciated the ability to leave our children at the kids club while we were in the water. We were even able to take a dive trip to Apo Island with the kids on the boat with a nanny, which allowed us to snorkel with them during the surface interval. The property is well-set up for children with two pools, a beach, and plenty of grass for running around. Food at the restaurant was good and many healthy options. All around excellent service from both the hotel and dive staff - we had a great time!!

Hi hinalea
Thank you for visiting our little piece of paradise. We’re so pleased you decided to dive with us, leaving the kids to enjoy the Kids’ Cove. We know how difficult it can be, so we do hope that this made your stay a little bit more enjoyable knowing the kids were in good hands. We hope you choose to holiday with us again sometime.

Win the 1st price in DRT in Feb 2017 for a free stay and dive in the resort. The resort and dive staffs are awesome from the booking of the trip till the end.

The place is along the highway and it is no where a town and so if you are looking for a quiet place then is this the place for you. The resort is self contain with various activities from spa, yoga, HIT, etc. The restaurant serve nice meals.

What I like best is the dive from the brief to the end of the dive. The guide is always attentive to the safety and look out for maro to show you. Some is so small you are wonder how they found it. They are also very accommodating, you list the creature you wanted to see and they will advise you which dive site to go and look out for you. The dive centre is well organise from the gearing up place to the boat.

We did a Oslob to see the whale shark and it is worth the effort. Last of all if you are tired of resort and wanted to explore out of it. The dumaguete city is about 30mins away depend on the traffic and you can take the public transport. the lobby counter staffs will be there to advise you how to go there and back (if all thing fail just call the resort they will send a van to pick you).

We spent a week in the Atmosphere Resort and we had an enjoyable stay. The dive team is very competent and knowledgeable about the local underwater fauna (a paradise for macro photographers) and the diving facilities are excellent. Our dive master, Je-An, was quick at spotting all sorts of small creatures and provided us with an unforgettable diving experience. The SPA is another highlight of the resort and we enjoyed great massages in a beautiful setting. Finally, the food was excellent with a wide choice to choose from. We had even the pleasure to be invited to a wine tasting by Ed, the sommelier, who gave us a nice tour of some New World wines from Argentina or New Zealand. All in all, it was a great holiday and I can highly recommend Atmosphere Resort .

I stayed at Atmosphere as part of my 40th Birthday celebrations in the Philippines, and have mixed opinions of it. The resort itself is very well maintained and beautiful. It's so peaceful and quiet, just how I wanted to spend my birthday, relaxing.

Booked 2 garden apartments and they were amazing. There were a couple of issues. I found the bed too hard for a luxury resort, and I get the eco-friendly part, but the number of bins and confusion was a bit too much. I couldn't work out where to put general rubbish. I would also have liked some greenery in the outside bathroom considering it's a garden apartment. Even if just some fake plants, to take away from the hardness of all the stone.

It is very heavily focused on diving, however that did not bother me as I expected that. We took a snorkeling trip to Apo Island and just loved swimming with the turtles. I was just what I expected. We also went on the Whale Shark trip to Oslob, and again was everything I expected.

I created memories here that would last a lifetime, and even proposed to my partner underwater on our Apo Island tour.

The disappointment came with the food. We utilised the TreeTop and had high expectations of the food, considering the price. Unfortunately we were let down, and had it not been for our waiter Clamance, we would have left. The food came out staggered, our friends with us would finish their course before ours was even served. Some courses had some extreme delays in coming out, and the main restaurant wasn't even busy. I suspect this could be due to the proteins all seemed to have been frozen. A couple of our dishes where still cold in the middle, others where over cooked and not that great. Instead of trying to create something French where the produce isn't rapidly available locally, I think it would be much better to focus on local cuisine/dishes that have ingredients rapidly available locally, and perfect them or put your own spin on them.

I was also a bit let down that I had emphasised when making the booking that I would be celebrating my birthday at the resort, and even advised them of my plans to propose. There was no special consideration/attention given to this, which was a bit dissapointing. Every other resort we stayed at on our holiday made a little extra effort to acknowledge this, even though were weren't there on the actual day. Missed opportunity here.

Overall though, the resort is lovely, the rooms very comfortable, and the staff friendly. Some minor improvements to be made, but an enjoyable stay.

Dear Aminns,
Thank you for taking the time to review Atmosphere Resort. We really appreciate the kind words about the resort, the rooms, your trip to Apo Island and to the whale sharks in Oslob. We are sorry to hear that your food experience was below expectations – we have a lot of new staff in the F&B department right now and we believe you were unlucky to experience our food service and the lack of attention on your birthday as a result of this. If you chose to return, we believe that it would be a completely different experience! Congratulations on your engagement!

My husband and I stayed for 2 weeks at this wonderful jewel of a resort during early October 2017. We flew from London on Philippines Air (OK), stayed overnight in Manila then took a short domestic flight out to Dumaguete the following morning. All very civilized.
We were met promptly at the airport by hotel staff and enjoyed the short journey to the resort.
On arrival at Atmosphere you are met with serenity, beautiful gardens and super smiley people. Everyone we meet says hello, we feel welcomed and are in our Deluxe Suite Room before we know we have even checked in.
The room itself is heavenly. Spacious, light and airy, the bed is huge and comfortable. The garden area to the rear has a fantastic outdoor shower. To the front we have a veranda with hammock and softly furnished seating.
The gardens, pool and restaurant areas are presented to a very high standard and are very well maintained.
The food was amazing, every meal was delightful and the selection available was more than adequate to keep us both very happy for the fortnight. All of the restaurant staff were well trained, attentive, helpful and eager to please and very good at what they do.
The resort has an extensive selection of very good wines, looked after by the brilliant Ed who treated us to an excellent tasting session. As a result I happily swapped overnight to sampling his recommendations for the remainder of my holiday- Well done Ed!
All of the bar staff were brilliant, friendly and attentive and had excellent customer service skills. Happy hour and cocktail evenings were great fun.
We dived daily and were extremely impressed with the whole operation which ran with a well managed understated efficiency. The staff are well trained and obviously love what they do. Dive Masters were excellent experienced guides, we dived with several and they were all consistently exceptional. The dive support team and boat crew were equally brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and their attention to their guests was first class. The diving was amazing, water temperature typically 28/29 ºC and we had great visibility. Local dive sites offered amazing variety and we were shown how to spot all kinds of marine life. Apo island- no more than half an hour by comfortable boat ride- was simply idyllic to dive. The hard and soft corals were pristine and stunning and there was plenty of turtle activity. We took three trips to the island and were blown away each time we went.
Thank you to everyone at Atmosphere- we were so well looked after and had a relaxing, brilliant holiday we will never forget. I know we will return and I can't wait!
