Have a Weekend Getaway at the New Blu Sands Beach Resort for a Unique Beachfront Experience

Once in a while About Cagayan de Oro and All About Cagayan de Oro (on Facebook) feature establishments outside of Cagayan de Oro that somehow contributes to the economy or tourism of the city. Cagayan de Oro is, after all, the capital of Misamis Oriental and on occasion the province contributes profusely to the city’s tourism, and vice versa. So in this case we feature the Blu Sands Beach Resort in Tubigan, Initao, Misamis Oriental.

Geographically, Cagayan de Oro is located inside Macajalar Bay, and while this makes for good waters for ship ports and facilities, it doesn’t give access to good beaches.

Instead, the almost straight access to open waters of the eastern and western coastline of Misamis Oriental creates some of the best beach resorts in the province such as Ajis, Midway, Hapitanan, Duka Bay, and now, Blu Sands Beach Resort.

Blu Sands has just opened this month, providing Cagayanons, Misamisnons, and other tourists a resort for those brief “stress release” vacations or weekend bonding getaways that won’t take you far from the city since Initao is only about one hour from Cagayan de Oro.

First time visitors won’t get lost because Blu Sands is located between Midway and Hapitanan. This is a prime location for beach resorts famous for its dazzling sunsets especially during clear weather conditions and on the summer months. The large part of the resort is given to the hotel itself, with screened and roofed beach side cottages on the beach front.

This is something different compared to the more common open cottages in other beach resorts so that food is not exposed to the elements and flies.

The beach cottages are good for families and other groups who want to enjoy beach swimming while at night guests can enjoy the large swimming pool for night swimming, though the pool is also open during the daytime for guests who prefer fresh water to salt water. There is even a children’s swimming pool for the small kids to traipse in.

  • Deluxe Room – P1,800.00
  • Deluxe Room with Veranda – P1,800.00
  • Twin Room – P2,200.00

  • Suite Room with Kitchen – P3,800.00
  • Barkadahan Rooms good for up to 12 persons – P5,000.00

Obviously, and in line with the December holidays, Blu Sands offers a unique venue for those small to medium company Christmas parties or generally to celebrate any occasion or event. There is even the choice of having it indoors or outdoors. If you’re on the hunt for a really good resort outside of the city, now is your chance to take a look at the newly opened Blu Sands Beach Resort.

    seems quite expensive for a resort with only one pool. I doubt many would still want come here especially as time passes by.

    when you ring to inquire about this resort person on other end of phone is very unprofessional and is only interested in when you can pay. will just hang up the phone while you are talking to them and when you try and ring back . it will take many calls before they answer again. they do not realise that the staff can make or break your business. the female on the other end of the phone treats you like she is in a superior position in life to you she talks down to you

    The owner or whoever is managing this resort is very arrogant. My mother just wanted to take a look at the place so we can book it at a later date. The person was very uncouth while my mother begged to just look at it for reference and of course just to find out if it’s large enough to accommodate our large family. The owner/manager barked at my mother “pagbuhat mo ug inyo”.

    This made my father very mad and we’re firm on our decision to never book any of our events at this place. We’re also telling our family and friends of the attitude of the one managing this place.

    Why cant we find this place in Agoda, Bookings or similar sites. We been there taking a bath in the pool and it was great, little high pricing/head. The cottage fee was a little expensive BUT that was the best cottage I’ve seen in the philippines

    My family and I (a group of 11 pax) went to the resort to celebrate my daughter’s graduation. While the facilities are new and clean, it left a pretty bad taste in my mouth that the rights of my parents were ignored.
    “Sec. 4. Privileges for the Senior Citizens. – The senior citizens shall be entitled to the following:
    (a) the grant of twenty percent (20%) discount from all establishments relative to the utilization of services in hotels and similar lodging establishment, restaurants and recreation centers, and purchase of medicines in all establishments for the exclusive use or enjoyment of senior citizens, including funeral and burial services for the death of senior citizens;”
    It was a petty and small amount. An amount that we can easily ignore. But what cannot be ignored is that the right of our senior parents to enjoy what is given to them by law and THE RIGHT OF EVERY SENIOR CITIZEN has been ignored.
    So if you have senior parents or any senior citizen in your party, avoid Blu Sands. Do not even try to reason with their staff. They will not acknowledge the law which gives all seniors a discount without prejudice.
    Oh yeah, I tried posting on their wall but you can’t post without approval. Shesh. Speak about paranoia.

    Unfortunately, front liner was not accommodating and very rude. Plus, walk-in visitors (who are inquiring) are not allowed to look and check the facilities. Definitely not a reasonable rate for something so ordinary.
