Secdea Beach Resort Getaway: A Birthday Treat

A few weeks before my natal day, I thought of buying something for myself – something not really expensive, just a pair of shoes, bags, or clothes.
However, when I learned about a newly-opened beach resort in Samal Island called Secdea, I just couldn’t help myself but be wowed!

Secdea was still under construction then  but they still accept limited guests. So I immediately booked for 3 persons – my friend Chona, my big sister Lalaine, and I.  My sister and Chona are the only people who said YES to my invitation since it’s a working day and most of my friends are working. I thought I deserve a break so I filed for a birthday leave and head to the resort to celebrate my birthday.

These photos are proofs as to how wonderful our experience was at Secdea.


Taken at the Entrance while waiting for the golf cart to bring us to the resort.

Manong (driver of the golf cart) presented himself to be our tour guide since we were the first guests to arrive early. VIP’s we were! LOL.  He dropped us here in the pond area and took picture of us. How nice of him!


Our next stop was at the Tree Deck. It was so scary when you’re on top as strong winds will try to blow you down. You have to hold tight on the rails.

We passed by other attractions before we arrived at the reception building. After everything was settled, we plunged in the pool.

It is the main attraction in the resort since the beach isn’t yet developed. They also have a kid’s playground and children’s pool so you can bring your kids here if you want.

Some more captivating views from the restaurant. Everywhere you look is just photo-worthy!

After enjoying the pool, we had a stroll around the other attractions in the area including the cottages, the mangrove walk, and their mini-bar.

The fun and excitement we had was incomparable. Truly, it was a great day. A fun-filled birthday getaway.

Thanks Secdea for treating us as VIP’s on our visit. ^__^ Special thanks to Manong driver for the great ride.

    • Hi! Im planning to visit Secdea this November. Just for day tour. I think the van trasnfers that they’re offerring is too steep @ P1000/pax one way. Would you know another way to get to the resort? habal-habal, multicab, bus, etc. and how much?

      Thank you!

      • Hello Ban. I dunno if there are multicabs going to Secdea. But there are habal-habal you can find at Babak Wharf to take you to the resort. It only cost around 70-80 per person. If you have your own private vehicle, that would be a more comfortable ride. 🙂

  1. I w0uld like to know a budget for an overnight stay good for two inclusive of all .CHOICES of cottages good for
    6 pax. How do we go to your place from the barge.

  2. hello Melita.. I’m not from Secdea. I just happen to visit there with friends. Anyway, from Babak wharf, you can find habal2 (single motorcycles) to take you to Secdea Resort, that is if you want some adventure on the road. The resort also has a van, contact them ahead of time for reservation. If you have your own private vehicle, that would be great.

    As for the cottages and rates, please visit the link Thank you.
