Atmosphere Resort is simply beautiful. We stayed in one of their garden bungalows that was conveniently located near the dining hall, bar and dive center. The grounds are extensive and lush. Our room was spacious and luxurious. The food was delicious; the restaurant manager Ed went out of his way to make sure we had adequate vegan choices. There was in fact an entire vegan menu for all meals plus vegan specials.

The staff in the dive center, reception, dining hall, and housekeeping were all attentive and accommodating. The dive center has a nice open lounge area in front of the white board with the schedule and a second white board for dive briefings. The camera room was well supplied .I loved the two large locker rooms with fans blowing in the back to dry out gear. The rinse tanks are well labeled. The crew will take your camera and gear to and from the boats which are a short walk away. The speedboats are not large, but a large boat is used for trips to Apo Island. (Do not miss a trip to Apo Island)

The diving was incredible. Water temperature was 81-83 degree F. in the last two weeks of April. The visibility was generally quite good (40-60 feet). We saw many MANY frogfish (Painted, Hairy), ocellate octopus (Mototi), hairy shrimp, mouth-brooding cardinal fish, mandarin fish, sea snakes , turtles, a large school of squid, and amazing nudibranchs.

I would highly recommend diving in Dauin and staying at the Atmosphere Resort.

Decided to check out Atmosphere after going on another Bluewater trip and everyone on my boat said Atmosphere/Dumaguete was in their top 3 trips. Wow! This place is the gold standard for diving vacations for me now! The diving was the best I've ever seen! I'm completely spoiled now. We were fortunate to have a guide to ourselves nearly the entire trip. The accommodations and food were also top notch. This is the first diving trip I've ever been on and haven't lost weight. My sister and I have already booked another trip for when the Philippines reopens to foreign tourists. We can't wait to go back.

My sister and I stayed at Atmosphere resort for a week in November and had an amazing time! The diving was the best we've ever seen! The scuba diving was amazing and all the dives sites were so close to the resort. I don't think ever had to travel more than 30 minutes by boat (not counting Apo Island). All of the DMs were top notch! We loved diving with Arjay and Ian. This was my first ever dive trip where I did a ton of diving but didn't lose a lot of weight because the food was so good. The most difficult thing about diving with Atmosphere is that it can be difficult to squeeze in a 2-3 course meal in between your dives. All of the staff at the resort are so accommodating. We're already trying to plan a return trip!

Our entire family thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Atmosphere resort.

The diving was amazing, we saw dozens of turtles at Apo Island, many sea snakes, beautiful corals and a huge school of jacks. The macro diving near the resort was also top notch, including the large house reef which can truly be done as a shore dive.

One of the best features of the resort is the snorkeling, which is shallow and right in front of the resort, and perfect for weak swimmers or small children.

The staff at the resort were all very nice. Amenities like the bar, 3 pools and spa were top notch. Any non-diver would still have an exceptional time at this resort. Food was truly 5 star, a rating I don't often give for food.

Rooms were very good, the standard suites and family rooms are close to the restaurant and pool, and more than adequate, even if a little sparse. Apartments are very nice and a "step up" for sure, but just a longer walk from the main resort area.

The dvie center is exceptionally well organized, each diver gets a camera station in a nice camera room, and also their own private "dive locker" to put their wetsuit , booties, etc.

The day trip for the whale sharks was one of the highlights. I thought it would be a little cheesy, but to see so many whale sharks up close in clear, blue water was a once in a lifetime experience.

I was glad I booked with Bluewater Travel , they were great in helping me select the perfect room, deciding when to go, and making sure the resort took good care of us. And they even got me a room upgrade for free. I'll be returning soon for sure.

High Quality resort with Excellent scuba diving facility, very spacious rooms, very nice bar and swimming pool.
You can choose between diving in the house reef, boat dives in nearby locations or to take a day tour to the nearby APO island or to one of the remote location such as Oslob to snorkel with Whale sharks or Siqijour Island.
the diving in the nearby location is mostly muck diving with a great variety of Macro opportunities especially frog fish that are found everywhere, the dive masters are very good at finding them and are accustomed to underwater photographers like me.

The staff is friendly and helpful and they aim to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
The only downside from my perspective is that the only option of food is the restaurant or the bar, the food is good but takes time that could be invested in an extra dive.
