First-Class Flashpacker Resort - Liquid Dive Dumaguete

A few years ago, I was able to travel to this wonderful, new dive resort off the coast of beautiful Dumaguete, Philippines.  This in-betweener resort has all the luxuries of an expensive resort without the overly extravagant cost.  The resort is also home to an excellent dive school.  Zoe, Time and Jim make your dive experience memorable and fun while placing your safety first.  That is one of the memories I’ve always remembered from my experience diving with them.  They are dedicated to developing caring and professional divers-no matter what level of experience they have had in the past.  If you are looking for adventure, without skipping out on a bit of luxury, head to Liquid Dive Dumaguete, Philippines.  

Have you heard the term “flashpacker” being used a lot lately? Flashpacker resorts are basically like the resort version of champagne for backpackers. Travellers can get away from the all-inclusive resorts that offer nothing of the local lifestyle while still having a comfortable base to explore the region. Shared bathrooms and crowded dorms are something that backpackers become accustomed to, but flashpackers crave a bit more. The original ‘flashpacker’ resort in Dauin is Liquid Dive Dumaguete. It is your home away from home, a place where everyone knows your name, and like-minded travellers gather to share the local experience. Liquid Dive Dumaguete offers you 5 star services in a friendly, family run resort at affordable prices.

Liquid is a custom built dive resort located on a quiet stretch of black sand beach in Dauin, Negros Oriental, Philippines. Only 20 minutes from the bustling university town of Dumaguete.  As a 5 Star PADI IDC Dive Resort, Liquid offers scuba diving courses from beginner to the instructor level. The resort looks out over views of the famous Apo Island and Siquijor Island while the backdrop is of the beautiful Mt Talinis. This secluded location gives Liquid complete tranquility and serenity.

The owners, Tim and Zoe, have lived in the Philippines since 2006 and have worked in the diving industry for over 15 years. In January 2011 the family relocated with their 2 children to Dauin and started construction of Liquid Dive Dumaguete.  The resort rapidly gained a reputation within the dive industry and is well equipped to accommodate your holiday, diving and relaxation needs.  Liquid is a place where you can meet new friends. Explore the fascinating underwater world of the Southern Visayas, including Dauin and Apo Island. Fulfill your adventurous side by trekking through the pristine jungles of Mt Talinis and its many lake and waterfalls or simply relax and enjoy yourself with a happy hour cocktail around the pool!

If you haven’t treated yourself to a flashpacking holiday there is no time like now and no place like Liquid Dive Dumaguete. Take the time to kick back and experience the champagne of backpacking in one of the Philippines most beautiful natural regions.
