This beachfront resort in Donsol is the perfect choice for divers wanting to observe the mysterious whale shark, the largest fish in the world.

Surrounded by manicured lawns and gardens, Elysia Resort it is an ideal place to unwind. Accommodation is in clean, comfortable, air-conditioned and naturally styled rooms, with either an ocean or pool view. We recommend a short stay here for a chance of a whale shark encounter and perhaps a trek to Mt Mayon, an active volcano, followed by a longer stay at Ticao Island Resort.
