We stayed at Lumbung Cottage for 3 nights. I booked last minute directly through their web page and I had a quick answer telling me they were expecting us that afternoon. Nice, easy and smooth. It's located close but further enough from Alona Beach so you can scape from the (in my opinion) too noisy atmosphere. Even if you're diving... More

The cottage was awesome! Clean, comfortable and with much love for details. The small pool was right in front of our cottage and was just perfekt for a little refreshment. The owners and their chambermaid were lovely! They had good information for us about the area and made us feel welcome with a wunderfull breakfast served to our terrace every... More

A corner of paradise awaits you at Alumbung. Behind the tall wooden gates lies a lush garden of gentle swaying palms and manicured grass peppered with hints of colour from Balinese parasols and tropical flowers. It is a world away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and the perfect place to relax and unwind, whether that is on... More

Sylvia, Roberto and all at Alumbung made sure our 6 nights on Panglao Islands were as magical as we'd hoped! The studio was comfortable, well equipped and provided the perfect base from which to journey around the beautiful Bohol and enjoy the beaches on Panglao! It's a short and incredibly cheap ride to Alona or a 20 minute walk. We... More

Our stay in Alumbung is the most unforgettable holiday I spent with my Fiancè. We got a chance to stay in 2 different cottages (Alumbung and Balinese) for our 5 days package deal. The cottages are very beautiful and very cozy that we love so much. We also find it very romantic for couples who would want to stay there... More

The house was very cosy and charming - everything was nicely made up. The owner of the resort is a charming lady who helped me to book a taxi to the airport, rent a scooter and explained how to get around the island to see what I wanted. The breakfast was really nice too!

We got a 3 days 2 nights couple package which includes tours. For couples who want to be pampered without any hassle then this place is for you. The couple who owns it were easy to talk with, all our schedule activities were done on time. I love the quietness of the place (although not recommended if you have kids).... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, to visit nearby beaches (Alona & Danao & others). In retrospect, we should have stayed longer, to day-trip from here to the Chocolate Hills & the Tarsier Sanctuary. The cottages were lovely, and the beautiful garden setting & the small pool provided a welcome base to spend some time away from the busy beaches.... More

Sylvie and Roberto were great and I had high hopes for our stay. I was warned that the beach was 600 meters away, resort is off the beaten path and that there was no restaurant on premises. Their beautiful, rustic, "Grass hut" secluded establishment would have been great for myself and my wife, in-which we are both 50ish and fit.... More

Dear Robert, It was a shame that you did not stay for the 3 nights. As you said I had told you about the walk to the beach etc....but your father in law seemed so happy with the garden, native cottages etc.... and I enjoyed talking to him, maybe your decision to move was also partly due to the 2...
