We just got back from Siargao and we are already looking forward to our next visit to the island. Kalinaw is a boutique resort with just 5 villas. We were a group of 4 and stayed in two villas (villa #3 and 4) for 3 nights. The villas were huge and designed with the guests in mind - it was... More

The best run boutique hotel I have stayed at in two years living in the Philippines. Appreciated the French owners' aesthetic and fantastic food, including a wood-fired pizza oven. Rooms are done bungalow style in hardwood and have spacious living areas and bathrooms in a modern style. The food includes western and some Thai and local options. It was easy... More

I Stayed in Kalinaw for 5 days with my family and loved it. This is one of the more High-end resort in Siargao. I've stayed in other places in Siargao which had a lower rates but this resort justifies what they are charging. The villa hat we stayed in had a private pool that can comfortably fit 5 people. It...

A absolutely wonderful resort and location. Siargo is wonderful. Resort has new road opened up behind it and traffic noise is a problem, however I'm assured by owners that noise insulation to huts is planned. Food is really special

We visited Kalinaw several times for their wonderful Italian pasta's and woodfired pizza's. The restaurant is located right at the beach, so great venue for a sun downer before dinner, while the children play around on the beach. Each meal was great. High recommend to anyone visiting Siargao and wanting Italian food.

We went to Siargao with managed expectations... Why?? Since it is a surfer's paradise and haven't heard of any nice place to bunk into we were expecting so-so accommodations and grilled, steamed seafoods... What did we get?? Kalinaw was heaven on earth right from the time we stepped into the resort. We were led to our villa which was capacious... More
