- Serene and absolutely beautiful place to stay. The huts are placed at the top of a hill and you can see the terraces on both sides of the hill. - The staff is gracious. - Food: Basic. Curry chicken was delicious. - Bring your own shampoo. It would be a good idea to use biodegradable soap and cleaning products... More

For many years I've wanted to visit the rice terraces in Banaue... Finally made the trek from Manila (approx 10+ hours, but we made several stops along the way) and VERY GLAD we stayed at this B&B: 1) simple, clean Ifugao hut (mattress and not much else) 2) communal bathroom about 15 meters away from the hut 3) enough hot...

My wife and I stayed here in early March. This Inn is without a doubt the best place to stay near Banaue. We stayed in one of the Ifugao huts, which are much larger on the interior than outside appearance would lead you to believe. The bed was great, and there were several outlets on the inside to charge phones,... More

Without doubt the NVI was the highlight of our time in the 'pines. Graham is a lovely person and that is reflected in what the NVI is all about. We opted for one of the packages available for four nights from Angeles City. It took about 8 hours but we got to know Graham and a lot about the 'pines.... More

First of all I wanna say that to get this place is a real adventure because of the not clear signs and the bad condition of the street. If you come here just after a rainy period you can find many difficulties because the mountain could have been collapsed (men were fixing it), so be sure to have a 4x4.... More

+ "Native Village Inn" was very cozy, located on a hill with a beautiful view on the rice terraces. The staff was super friendly and made us delicious food. The "Ifugao cottages" was very nice to stay in and the bathrooms was very clean. - I really liked the place but it was just so sad to see a monkey... More

We stayed here only one night and we enjoyed the extraordinary good food, possibly the best since we arrived in the Philippines six weeks ago. Service was terrible though. The waiting time was up to two hours and the staff did not know the basic etiquette. We had several wrongly received orders too. That said, the staff was friendly and... More

Great food and great staff. The Ifugao cottages is very cozy to stay in. There is a nice fireplace in the middle of the restaurant as well. But to have a caged monkey at the entrance that is obviously stressed out and depressed is not okay. Unfortunately this ruined the atmosphere at this place.

Loved our stay here. I loved the way the little houses we stayed in and I loved the food served. Only problem with the place maybe is the accessibility. I believe that is the way it is in the whole Banaue Area.

What a beautiful place in a truly stunning location! The huts are charming. Everything is spotlessly clean and Graham is keen to cater to your needs. The food is fresh and high quality. We are vegetarians and it was delicious. Indeed the journey up is long but we were met at Banaue and taken up to the inn by jeepney.... More
