Imagine a 300 meter stretch of pure white sand beachfront surrounded by towering limestone cliffs and majestic coconut palms… postcard-perfect tropical waters teaming with rainbows of aquatic life… and eleven historically important World War II Japanese ship wrecks just minutes away from your doorstep....
Sounds too good to be true doesn't it? that's what everyone says, until they arrive at Sangat.
Edged by a 300-meter span of white sand beachfront, postcard-perfect tropical waters, and coral reef gardens brimming with sea life, Sangat Island Dive Resort has become, in just a few short years, one of the premier resort destinations for eco-conscious paradise-seekers and diving enthusiasts the worldwide.
What makes Sangat Island Dive Resort extra special is its close proximity to 11 World War II wrecks, 10 of which are historically significant Japanese War and Supply ships sunk by American forces during the "Battle of Coron Bay" in 1944, 8 of which lie between just 5 & 30 minutes away from the beach.
- Sangat Island Dive Resort is an intimate and friendly resort that offers just fourteen ecologically "low-impact" accommodations. In keeping with the extraordinary beauty of the island, all resort accommodations have been constructed according to the durable, time-honoured techniques of local native artisans and laboriously assembled from the finest, locally-available materials including hand-woven bamboo wall panels, split-bamboo flooring, and Cogon Grass or Nipa Palm roofing.
All accommodations are well ventilated by large mosquito-netted windows and include ceiling fans, ample lighting, 220-volt electrical outlets and western-styled bathroom facilities.
These 6 stilt-mounted beach cottages are ideal for those who desire that perfect view of tropical waters by day, or dream of being lulled to sleep by the sound of gentle lapping waves at night.
Additional features include elevated wooden terraces overlooking the crystal-clear waters of Coron Bay, woven cotton hammocks and sun beds.
These are significantly larger and taller than the other beachside accommodations, they offer a 6x7 meter living/bedroom area with two double-beds, spacious western-styled bathroom facilities and a bay-view terrace. A mere stone’s throw from our beachfront, this unique accommodation features spectacular views of Coron Bay and a shaded hammock lounge directly beneath the structure.
These 4 cottages are nestled at the base of a wall of towering, semi-timbered limestone cliffs, in a lushly-forested and uniquely peaceful environment that is often frequented by the gentle music of tropical morning song birds.
While located near the rear boundary of the resort, each hillside cottage is quite literally a 60-second walk to our grass-edged beachfront. Similar to our beachside styles, each hillside accommodation also includes an exterior bay-view terrace and woven cotton hammocks.
Spacious and comfortable enough to easily and economically accommodate a larger family or medium-sized groups of guests under one roof.
Each of these two suite units – constructed directly opposite each other with a common open-air foyer between features a living room area and 2 separate bedrooms.
Both bungalow suite units share a wrap-around exterior terrace complete with tables, chairs and cotton lounge hammocks. While somewhat removed from the beach front, terrace-lounging guests will still be able to enjoy a relatively unobstructed view of the beach area and bay waters.
Perched well above the rest of the resort, these 2 Hilltop Chalets are the perfect accommodation for any romantic couple interested in a private, exclusively-styled paradise hide-away.
Aside from the unique location and ambiance these very special accommodations afford, their stone-walled, Cogon grass roofed Chalets also offer commanding views of Coron Bay and effortless access to our bar and restaurant facilities.
Additional amenities specific to the Hilltop Chalets include a bamboo-canopied beds, a modern rock-tiled bathroom with glass-walled shower room, satellite TV reception, a fully stocked mini-bar.
If you're interested in your very own private slice of paradise, the ultra-secluded, tri-level Lambingan Villa – complete with its own private (and we mean private) white sand beachfront – is, unquestionably, the only place to stay!
Masterfully crafted into a cove of limestone some 200 meters from your nearest neighbour – and accessible only by kayak or a hanging foot bridge – the Lambingan Villa offers it’s guests a beach-level entry foyer, an open-air lounge area, a Balinese “rock shower”, an elevated second-floor sleeping chamber and a massive, stately, third-floor master bedroom.
Upon entering this spectacular accommodation from its own secluded white sand beachfront, guests will be initially greeted by a spacious, open-air entertainment area and hammock lounge. To the left of the lounge area is the entrance to one of the resort’s most talked about features: a rock-enclosed Balinese-inspired shower grotto where the salt, sand and sweat of the day is eased from your body by a cascade of fresh water falling from a fissure in the rocks above.
Moving up a short double staircase reveals the second floor sleeping chamber which includes two queen-size beds, two western styled toilet facilities, and a fully-stocked mini-bar. On the third floor, directly beneath the eaves of the Nipa-thatched roof, is the grand master bedroom complete with king size bed, satellite TV, and incredible views of Coron Bay and an ancient limestone forest.
