We visited this resort once again to celebrate the birthday of our dearest - super Kentoy. I contact one of the nice resorts in Pantukan for booking but unfortunately no response but we still decide to get there since it was the original plan. Unfortunately, the Ocean World Resort only available for sightseeing on that day. So, we decided to find another place and the birthday boy will take the wheel.

In short, the birthday boy requested the Bonhomie Leisure and Resort as expected since he came here on several occasions. This resort is famous to him for its clean kid's pool, a relaxing environment with a nice beachfront and still considered as not touristy.

The entrance fee is very affordable with lots of enjoyable facilities while the staffs are very accommodating. But, of course, corkage would be charged if you bring food and beverages. This resort has the white sand beachfront with enjoyable blue-green water in moderate depth suitable for children to sailing; however, children still need to be monitored when dipping into saltwater to ensure their safety.

Take your chance to have a memorable dining experience at the floating cottage by ordering a set of food at the restaurant. The resort also offers diving packages outdoor sports and other water sports activities.

This place is a perfect place for family hang out, chatting with the group while sitting is in the beachfront, whereas several sunbeds can be used for free while enjoying the beauty of the sunset that reflects in the seawater, the mountain views, and the Samal Island.  You can also experience the relaxing breeze from the ocean and mountain and nothing else to kill but time.

Bon Homie Leisure and Resort is open from 6:00 AM up to 9:00 PM
