At Fairways & Bluewater, we listen to the guests and continuously find ways to deliver extreme level of hospitality & service taking every opportunity to make each guest transaction an extraordinary interaction.”

“Fairways & Bluewater is a destination where people are reminded that life is best lived when sensibly designed and curated amenities and the beautiful gift of mother nature are put together in perfect balance. We offer great food, excellent service, and a stylish tropical modern design facility — these are simply ingredients in the recipe of human connection. In the end, how we make guests feel is what matters the most.”, Mr. Chan said. He is hands-on and passionate in leading his team in efforts to refresh the facilities of the resort as Fairways & Bluewater valiantly stands-up after the struggles that whipped the tourism industry due to the Global Pandemic. He adds “We are on a slow but steady rise. Our golf course and the relatively new villas are already being enjoyed by guests. Fairways & Bluewater has embarked on many rehabilitation projects following the Pandemic Alert Level 1 category announced in March 2022. Our biggest entertainment area, the Kudetah District, was recently re-launched. It showcases an exquisitely designed area where one can enjoy good food and drinks while having fun in a lavish pool overlooking the Sibuyan Sea. As the magnificent sunset engulfs the island, the Kudetah District transforms into a vibrant and lively place where we bring the Boracay party and fun vibe inside the exclusive paradise. We have also started to restore our other facilities, beginning with our historic villas whose rustic and vintage ambiance promotes relaxation, reflection, and re-connection with nature.”  

Mr. Chan said his team is committed to be relentless in ensuring that Fairways & Bluewater is consistent in providing the highest level of customer satisfaction as it possibly can saying, “Seeing the look of complete joy on a guest’s face is one of the most beautiful addictions for a hotelier. Travelers work hard so they can have a memorable vacation. That is why we in Fairways & Bluewater work hard to serve them only happy memories of their wonderful vacation. That is our idea of hospitality. That is the Fairways & Bluewater way.”
