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

Alumbung is a small quiet resort in a beautiful exotic garden. The small clean and beautiful cottages are located in such a way that you feel you have privacy. The staff is nice and friendly. The area is nice than Alona beach. I stayed in cabin # 1 with private kitchen so I could conjure with the island's many exotic... More

I went there from Cebu by ferry and the from Taglibaran I took a Jeepney that stops in front of Alumbung...... 25 PHP for the 20 km - an interesting dramatically overloaded ride ;) Well as soon as you open the door and arrive Alumbung it welcomes you a small unique place. Especially the owners and the housemaids are trying... More

Really enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the hotel. Nearby hotel with large pool on the beach that you can use if you stay here, much nicer than Alona. Nice design touches in and around the hotel and the owners are lovely and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The Alumbung cottages in the gardens in the back are uniquely done. Serene.The location is not exactly on the beach . But this was the way I intended it to be..nice and quiet as I needed a bit of solitude and I wasn't disappointed at all. The fresly brewed coffee is up to Starbucks standards. There is no restaurant, so... More

Just Splendid! And thank you for the very warmth welcome and care from Sylvie and Alberto and so with the Mom of Sylvie.... More

Stayed with my parents and aunt for 4nights/5days. Enjoyed our stay very much! Its so nice to come home to a peaceful place after a tiring day of touring. Really loved their concept of native houses, very cozy!! Early reviews are correct...you wouldnt mind if its not beach-front, a 10 minute walk (or less) to the beach is a treat... More
