Lianga, a beautiful small town in Surigao, is the home of Kansilad Beach Resort. This family owned beach get-away used to be a lumber yard in the 60’s. But has since developed their property into a simple yet very charming home away from home.
Their accommodation includes:
Mangrove Cottages @ P1,200.00 per night (sea side)
Duplex Bungalow @ 1,200.00 per night (large room perfect for a family)
Small Cottages @ P1,000.00 per night (max of 4 people)
Honestly, I wondered how the rooms are gonna be considering the prices. I saw some pictures but you really never know until you’ve seen it in person. I didn’t expect much to be honest, because their prices were cheap. But when we checked in, the rooms were nice and clean. Simply built and needs rehabilitation in some areas, but I loved the space (of the Duplex Bungalow where the hubby and I stayed) and the beds were comfortable.
Those who are looking for a high end resort, this is not for you. It is not a Secdea or a Pearl Farm. 🙂 But the place brings calmness and peace. And the view , breathtaking… Specially early in the morning or at nights when you can only hear the sound of the waves and the wind. Perfect for a tired soul…
The photos I took , hopefully, will convey the message. Better yet, try visiting Kansilad and tell me what you think. 🙂
This is how early mornings are. The resort has a bridge that ends in a balcony type resting place with tables , benches and chairs. It opens to a 360 degree view of the ocean and another island from afar. The open sky made it more spectacular , specially when its color changes from blue to pink. And to yellow or orange.
As the day continues to unfold, the morning sun would hit this rocky hill making it shine. And the sea water glisten.
And then the fishermen start arriving with their catch of the day. 🙂
I found the place so relaxing. The owners do not allow videoke or karaoke, so the peace and quiet is preserved through out the day.
Hanging out with the family:
Mama, in pink jacket. My aunt, in a purple shawl.
My sister and her family.
With papa here.
DAY TIME ACTIVITIES:
Serenity at its best. Just chillin’ , watching the ocean.

Caving… John and I found small bats in the cave. 🙂 This is a small cave, but there are stalactites and stalagmites.
Hanging out more… 🙂
Having fun here with their resident pigeons.
Then back at the beach again… What better way to enjoy the day?! 🙂
EATING AND DRINKING:
The resort serves breakfast , lunch and dinner for a very minimal cost. Most viand range from P120 to 180 per order, that’s good for 3 to 4 people. We ordered fried / sweet and sour isda sa bato, ginisang pusit, fried chicken, pancit or bihon, pinakbet , grilled isda sa bato, etc. In other words, there were several choices. So we didn’t get hungry.
Breakfast consisted of corned beef, hotdog , bacon and egg with garlic or steamed rice.
Their restaurant had choices of beer. But to be sure, ask them if they have your brand. In our case we brought Apple beer and wine since they didn’t have those. And the hubby just ordered San Mig Light through them.
Spending time together. Outside our cottage here. 🙂
Decided to watch the full moon, before going to bed.
I woke up to this the next day… 🙂
Full moon and sunrise, at the same time.. That’s awesome. 🙂
Ahhh life is good… Thank you Lord. 🙂
My nephew Blaire, wakes up earlier than me , most of the time. So we get to explore things together. When we go to places, he usually accompanies me to watch the sunrise. 🙂
The pink sky turned to gold a few minutes later…
After breakfast, we left the resort for a few hours , to do an island hopping at Britania Islands. I will be writing separately about this, so don’t forget to visit my blog again. 🙂
The rest of the day was a blur. But one thing’s for sure, we had fun. And we enjoyed our 2 nights / 3 days stay at Kansilad.
Sunset on our last day at the resort didn’t disappoint. 🙂 Sitting beside the beach on a hammock was a perfect end to a splendid day.
