We really enjoyed our stay at Alumbung. Sylvie and her husband were really friendly, helpful and flexible. The cottage was lovely and absolutely clean. Breakfast in the garden, quiet poolside... a little paradise!

a very quite place with beautiful garden, very natural and we felt like we are really belong to nature. The atmosphere is very relaxing. Staff was very friendly and they are very much willing to provide all the information we needed about Bohol. A 5minute drive away to Alona beach by motorbike (habal-habal). We initially wanted to book the Balinese... More

We spent our 3rd Anniversary in Bohol and we stayed in this place. Cozy, peaceful, and an energy boosting environment. The owner is very approachable and accommodating. I think Alumbung is the place where to stay in Bohol and must be in the tourist spot list. =) They also have tour packages.

Alumbung is really a little hidden gem at the rather quiet Danao beach, which is next to the touristy Alona beach. The wonderful huts & bungalows, which are decorated lovingly are placed in a lush tropical garden, even a small pool is available. The owners are very nice people and offer a lot of tips and information about the area.... More

We stayed at a lush, tropical retreat called Alumbung Resort Panglao. You can spend the whole day in their tropical garden listening to birds and buzzing crickets. The Alumbung Resort Panglao is in the center of a tiny local village. Surrounded by playing children, stray dogs and relaxed Filipinos on their tricylces this is a place to experience the real...

Great tiny and cosy cottage in their colorful garden with swimming pool where you feel like at home. Just a few steps and we enjoyed peacefull... More

Staying in alumbung is really a pleasure. Beautiful garden, very cosy cottages, quiet and peaceful. They even have a very nice hut to exercise your yoga of getting a massage. The owners are very kind en take good care of you. It is close to the beach and yet very quiet. I loved it.

Alumbung is like your "home away from home"... The place is quiet, away from the maddening crowd (which what we really looking for).. The place is well maintained, very clean and the cottages are beautifully designed. We stayed in the Balinese cottage. We loved our own space. We enjoyed hanging around the cottage because you really have privacy. We had... More
