The resort occupies one of the best spots in terms of beach area. They also regularly comb their beachfront. A surf school is just in front of the resort. We got a surf and spa package which is truly a good deal. You will need the one hour massage after one hour of surfing. Make sure to book the spa... More

A great combination of beach and pool. We spend a vacation here in ilocos and it was great. The breeze from the sea is relaxing.. foods are totally taste good. And their rooms are very elegant, clean and comfortable. Lots of things to do here like surfing.

Stayed at the Kahuna for a couple on nights in February 2015. Top place to stay, rooms are spotless, food is bang on with good size plates of food. The infinity pool is a good size with basketball hoop. The beach is well maintained and cleaned every morning with no rubbish to be seen. I would highly recommend this hotel... More

I particularly loved the food here and its large selection of beers from Cerveza Negra to Konig. The rooms though may need some renovation. Although water pressure was strong at the shower room, the shower head was broken and the water heater was not working. The AC was too noisy at night. They may need to upgrade it to a... More

After nearly not making it here (car broke down in Tarlac, and we needed to get a ride from there by Minivan), I'm glad we didn't miss this trip. Over 5 nights, between the well equipped hotel and the surfing, I managed to unwind and enjoy every moment. The garden rooms are good enough, clean, though the bed was hard... More

We recently stayed for 5 nights… what a great place! The resort is positioned in the middle of a beautiful beach enjoying stunning sunsets every night. The grounds are well maintained and the atmosphere is relaxing amongst the gardens and Filipino- Balinese style rooms. The staff are very welcoming and friendly creating a happy family orientated vibe. With big smiles... More

This hotel is located about 15-20 minutes (by car or jeep) from San Fernando city; the garden rooms were clean but very small and basic, the pool has a great view of the beach and sea and the staff were somewhat friendly. We found the hotel totally overpriced for how it sold itself as a spa resort. The room we... More

Not bad, not good and better run than most resorts in the Philippines. A few tips: 1)Don't call the place for a booking between 6p-10p, because the band is playing and the receptionist won't be able to hear you. 2)Prepare to throw down a cash deposit of 2000 pesos when you get there. They can't/won't block a deposit on your... More

My family and I went here for the holidays and stayed overnight before heading to Baguio City. We enjoyed the view of the beach by the infinity pool and we like it that despite the holiday season the resort was able to control the number of people getting in the resort. This prevented the place from getting overcrowded. Though Kahuna... More

Fresh new Kahuna is a diamond in the rough of crummy to mediocre places along this stretch. Their attractive well kept beach front is probably the best for beginner to intermediate surfers. The adjacent beach to the north was much rougher, but it was nice for walking. Surfing was indeed good and there was often a swell where there wasn't... More
