hidden 156 kilometers south of Bacolod City, Punta Bulata White beach resort and day spa is a tropical paradise in Cauayan, Negros Occidental. Cauayan is the municipality just before Sipalay City, which is also very well-known for white beaches. It’s 4 hours away from the city center of Bacolod. You might be asking, “Why do I have to travel 4 hours to go to this resort? Merita?” Well, let this post give you an answer.
Punta Bulata prides itself on its stretch of creamy white sand, clear shallow water, a thriving diverse marine life and a amazing view of Sulu Sea. The place also boasts of an infinity pool and spa. The staff is also very friendly and helpful, a reflection of the people of Negros in general.
When we arrived at the resort after 4 hours of travel, we were welcomed by the resort manager who had been waiting for us at the entrance to the place. The manager kept on apologizing for the bumpy ride from the national highway to their location. (We rode a motorcycle to get here and it was a tough ride to say the least.) We kept on telling him that it was ok and that we got plenty of alerting from their staff whom we had been corresponding with.
We were handed wet towels as soon as we approached the reception desk. They also served welcome drinks! After settling our payment, we were given the crucial to our cottage.

Room and Rates
A staff member named Arvee led us to our cottage by the beach. We booked the beach family Suite which costs P2400 per night. including the 10% tax, the total cost was P2640. It was a very spacious hut with a double bed and a single bed — best for traveling groups of three like us. That indicates that each of us paid P880.
The suite had the rustic feel considering that it was normally made of wood. It was really, really big. It had its own spacious restroom! like really spacious. It also had a veranda and an area, which we didn’t know what for. LAUGH OUT LOUD. We ended up using that room to dry our wet clothes and snorkel. The whole cottage was also screened to secure its occupants from mosquitoes.

Danjugan Island Marine Reserve Day Tour
Punta Bulata also uses its guests day excursion to Danjugan Island Marine Reserve which is just a few minutes away. Danjugan Island is probably one of the most stunning and a lot of biologically rich islands I’ve been to. I have so much to say about this place that it should have a separate entry.
After our Danjugan Island trip, we indulged in the dishes used by Punta Bulata Restaurant. quite honestly, there’s nothing exceptional about the food. They were a bit expensive, too. but it seemed like we didn’t have a choice. It was the only place we could get food from in the area. Hehe.
Punta Bulata Restaurant
Good food, but nothing great. amazing staff, though.
After dinner, we spent a lot more than enough hours just swimming at the pool. At around 11pm, we made a decision to call it a night as we would be leaving early in the morning the next day.
