We came here for our first wedding anniversary, and what a fantastic choice! A short pleasant ferry ride from Dumaguete, the retreat is located on the cliff tops in a private location. Felt welcome from the moment we arrived, and the service continued to be amazing throughout our stay. The massage pagoda overlooks the ocean (definitely get a massage whilst... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Kawayan on February 7th - 12th of this year. I have nothing but good things to say about my experience here. Their staff picked us up at the ferry and transported us to the resort. Kawayan is off of the beaten path, which is exactly what I was looking for. The views from the... More

I stayed here from the 23rd of February to the 28th with my wife and one year old son. Pickup from the pier was comfortable, we were greeted with smiling faces a choice of free beer or water and a chat with one of the owners as we drove to the resort in a van. We stayed in the Prestige... More

I agree, the place is nice, has GREAT staff, the rooms overlooking the sea seem idyllic, but forget a warm welcome if you want to drop by and have lunch/dinner with your friends if they stay here. The owners don't seem to want anyone coming to spend their money here if you are not staying at the resort and are... More

Good day RosscoNz "forget a warm welcome" Do you excpect a warm welcome if visitors behaving like they booked in and annoying our in-house guests? (please refer also to the Q &A section about comment of other guests) "I am not sure why they were not happy about us paying them thousands of pesos" WE WILL EXPLAIN TO YOU WHY!... More

We stayed 8 nights at this resort and don't regret one minute of it. Barbara and Silvio made us feel welcome from the start. Setting - If you are looking for night clubs and lots to do this is not the place for you. However, for my wife and I who were looking for a quiet resort where we could... More

Silvio and Barbara made sure that we had the best stay possible in their resort. To make up for the less than sunny weather, they upgraded our room to a luxurious cliff-side villa. The room was amazing! The bed was so huge, we could swim on it. The Balinese-style bathroom was spacious and looked very romantic. For the breathtaking views... More

No signs on the highway, or on the way from the highway down all the kilometers of back roads telling you how to get to the resort. That's for starters. I know the island and back roads ok and I still had to ask several times. No signs was ridiculous. Upon arrival the guard says the resort is NOT open.... More

We enjoyed our stay there last June 12 to 14, 2013. We are the only guest that time and place is very romantic. We both amazed on that place! The staff and even the owner of the resort are all friendly, we had a very warm welcome till the duration of our stay. We will surely go back there!

If you want to escape the city life and want a relaxing place. The Kawayan Holiday resort is one of the most recommended place. It is so solemn and peaceful. The kawayan stairs go down and the cliff are really so stunning. The view from the kawayan balcony is spectacular. I feel like having a holiday on exotic paradise. The... More
