“To blend with the environment, natural materials were used in construction. Locally sourced plants were used for landscaping.”

The open-air huts were perfect for the hot and humid day. Still, expect to sweat like a pig during summers in the Philippines.

The landscape was beautiful and the grounds were well-maintained.

The design of the cabana was brilliant – from the quality of materials used to the height of the steps.

During the day, you can opt for your table to be up inside your hut, good for group snacks or just organizing your stuff.

At night, they’ll set up your bed for you.

Any time of the day, you can pull down your wall mats (on any of the 4 sides of your hut) to create a sense of privacy. Hanky-panky is allowed at your own risk. 😛

My favorite part of the Cabana is the duyan (hammock). It brings me back to my happy childhood.

The Cabanas are not air-conditioned although the ones closest to the dining area has ceiling fans installed.

We had direct access to the beach. We can see the ocean upon waking up and hear the waves in our sleep at night. The only thing missing here is WiFi. But that’s ok, we got used to it by the second day.

For me, this is perfect. I am not being squished inside a tent nor am I lounging in a deluxe bed. This is the closest I can get to nature, without sacrificing the comfort of my basic needs.

I am blessed to have seen and experienced luxurious beach front hotels in my travels. But deep inside, I am still that mountain girl who wants to feel the hot wind on my face, to eat and sweat like the locals, and to have sand on my feet all day long.
