I spent about 5 days fun diving with Liquid. The entire experience was wonderful and stress-free. The staff are all very professional, the food was fantastic, and the cottages were very comfy. The atmosphere was chilled and relaxed and the people I met were super fun. It was also very reasonably priced compared to a lot of the other places... More

A lovely place run by lovely people, I had a short but very enjoyable stay. The rooms are simple but clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. The restaurant and new poolside bar are both great places to waste a few hours. I will be back, if only for a bit more BTS cake.

The resort is located at approx 40 mins away from the Dumaguete Airport. We hired a private car at 700peso for one way into Liquid. We were impressed... More

Liquid Dumaguete is an all-in-one place to stay for diving in the Dumaguete/Dauin area. Being located between the Bacong and Dauin boundary, it remains close to Dumaguete City but not far from the marine reserves of Dauin. It has rustic beach-front cottages. We stayed 5 days and took 2 dives at Bulak and Masaplod Norte. The 2nd level laid-back resto... More
