We are located at Km 18.5 on the National Road, going south from Dumaguete City.
Our resort is nestled directly in front of a marine sanctuary and is ideally accessible to explore the Island of Negros, from the mountaintops to the vast expanse of plains, to the seabed towards the Western part of the Visayas including Panay Island and onwards to the Northern parts of the Philippines.
Sturdy and spacious buildings meeting German standards are accented with palm-thatched roofs, watching over the resort’s courtyard and relaxing, crystal clear swimming pool. Our international chef oversees a personalized and wonderful restaurant with some of the finest cuisine you’ve encountered, and our seaside bar is a picture perfect place to relax.
Our house reef offers excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities. It is amazingly convenient just 80 meters away from your room, to enrich your stay with direct access to the beachfront. Beach and snorkeling accessories are available for rent at the front desk.
The beautiful countryside nearby invites you for a leisurely stroll, or a trekking tour riding the local buses and other public transportation such as the tricycles and jeepneys that pass by on the National Highway. The hotel also offers motorbike rentals at a very reasonable price with a complete set of motorbike gear. We have a wide selection of the latest models of motorcycles and scooters in carefully maintained condition.

Our belief is that by providing the high quality physical and spiritual environment that is conducive to serenity and tranquility, along with our team members’ attitude of skilled service, Sea Dream Resorts is where your dream of a relaxing tropical holiday becomes reality.
It is undeniable that a business enterprise such as Sea Dream Resorts represents an important part of the lives of our staff, for, in many ways, the business constitutes a person's principal social group, and it amounts to a replacement for the village or tribe that was the central social setting for our ancestors. In many ways, one's affiliation with a business is the most important social institution most of us have outside of the family.
We therefore take this responsibility to our team members seriously and realize that their sincere satisfaction with their work, along with excellent training and adequate empowerment, is one of the keys to a perfect stay for our guests.

The fishing village of Dauin, founded in the 18th century (1765 or 1775?) is one of the oldest towns organized in Negros Oriental. Dauin is a small but (relatively, by provincial Philippines standards) wealthy community. During the Spanish regime, the local administration was left in the hands of a "Captain" under the close supervision of the local priest. Since Dauin's founding, Catholicism has gained a strong foothold in the town. There is an old Spanish mission on the town square which dates back to the time of these early European colonists, and the church of Dauin (1857), built by the Spanish friar, is the oldest existing in the province. Dauin may have gotten it's name either from a big tree called "GALAWIN" or the friendly small people called "Dawende" living in the tree, or from the manner the natives sold their bananas by the bunch of fingers "lawing" in the dialect
