Wow what a fantastic resort. The first thing I noticed on arrival was the silence and tranquility. The staff were lovely and always smiling. The ocean villas were spectacular and there are only 4. The owner was lovely and spoke with us many times over a glass of wine or two. Great wine selection. We loved this place so much we booked another night. It’s a little out the way but that’s what this place has going for it, the food is fresh and cooked perfectly. We loved the turquoise clear water to snorkel on the house reef it really was a special place. Unsure why anyone would say any different unless they hadn’t actually stayed here. We will definitely be returning

First of all wonderful staff. Very nice, flexible and accommodating. An asset to the resort. We rented a the Luxe Villa. All cabins are very roomy and have "outdoor" bathroom which is a nice touch. Restaurant is great and don't hesitate to ask for specials if you want. There is no beach. But a long stairs down the cliff. Going up requires some decent physical condition. Swimming pool is nice. Not too big but adequate for the size of the place. Our cabin could use a mattress update. Feels worn. The other advice I can give new guests is too fill in the pre-check-in form ahead of time. If not, you have to go through a rather tedious effort on your phone to check-in online. Some people may find this hard to do but staff insists it is "the way". Maybe the manager can review the process for older people not that privy with their mobiles if at all available.

6 person / 3 rooms / 4 diver perfect place to relax and calm down!! We have spend 3 weeks, on 3 different islands, the last location was the KHR. It started from the pick-up from the ferry.... the friendly stuff picked us up and serves us cold towels to refresh.... even cold drinks been served on the 30 minute trip to the resort. After we entered the resort we felt very familiar with the stuff! The rooms are really big and the bathroom is unter the stars ceiling! The breakfast is fresh and individual. The dinner is changing everyday and you can choose between 3 different dishes (from starter, main course to dessert) diving is a dream and it is the best house-reef we had ever been. the flare is from hard to soft corals and the macro-life is amazing ( Joey knows exactly where to find the hidden animals... and NOT to touch it!!) 3 adults and 3 teens felt to relax mode and thinking to come back.....

Wow! An amazing place and experience! The location and scenery at this small and very cozy resort is difficult to explain beyond “AMAZING”. On a cliff, overlooking Apo island and amazing Sunsets! Lounge in the pool for some unearthly sunset views and star gazing. They staff were OUTSTANDING! So friendly, helpful, very attentive, made us feel at home. The food at the restaurant was so delicious and fun. HOMEMADE ICE CREAM! Best food we had in the island in our 18 days on Siquijor. We booked at Kayawan for only 3 nights. We could not leave! Repeatedly extending to eventually 13 nights there. The stair case down to the ocean, descending along the cliff, is so unique and beautiful. Easy to snorkel and it’s beautiful. Though I had injured my knee before arriving to Siquijor, I was still able to do some scuba diving (I want to do more!). Very nice dive site and the dive shop on the property is very nice and well equipped with new gear! We stayed in an ocean view villa. WOW! So comfortable, classy and fun. The bathroom is “outside” through a back door of the unit. So fun, luxurious and unique. It is an amazing design feature which my words can not capture how nice it is. Just fun showering (very privately) outside! Oh, and I would be remiss if I did not say they have the best scotch/whiskey selection I have seen in the Philippines. Especially outside of Manila. Wow! (Rumor is they have already replenished much of what I consumed 😱🤣🤣) Siquiijor is now my favorite Island in the Philippines and Kawayan is my favorite resort! (NOTE: they do not recommend this place for children, and as a father, I have to AGREE! You are on a cliff! There are rails, but these will not contain a young child!!! )

My wife and I spent a few days of our honeymoon here and we wish that we had planned to stay longer. The environment, food, service, and amenities were outstanding. We got lucky and pretty much had the place to ourselves, which was awesome. Major points to the kitchen staff as we couldn't believe how great the meals were. Also, the exclusive snorkeling/diving available right out front is all-time. Siquijor is a great island with lots to see and experience. If we make it back, we will definitely be staying here again. My only recommendation is that they provide better Signage from the main streets because it was difficult to find, especially at night, but downloading google maps ahead of time will be your best bet if you're driving yourself to the resort.

The pictures cannot do this resort justice. The personnel were all fabulous. The fresh daily menu always had plenty to offer, we both gained weight. Our villa was outstanding, very comfortable. We basked in the Sun, played in the awesome pool that has shelfs down to a diving depth, lovely temperature. The stairway down the cliff to diving opportunities was brilliantly planned and executed. I had two two-hour massages, Vern had one two hour massage. The prices are extremely reasonable and satisfying. Kudos to both Charlita M and Ceniza O for their skills. The owners are devoted to the place and it clearly shows in the result. They assisted with getting us to a bank, and also with our ferry tickets moving us over to Bohol island. We highly recommend this lovely holiday resort, almost unnoticeable from the road. One level arrangements so no balconies. Wi-Fi was good, no actual live TV but lots of apps from which to obtain programming.

Perfect place to chill and relax for a number of days. Unique, stunning view - if you are lucky like us you see a family of dolphins pass by- nice, well designed and maintained bungalows. Great food, with several Swiss specialties, pair it with a wine and you can enjoy the sunset and have a stress free time. The Swiss couple running it are very helpful and the stuff are impeccable. Diving and snorkel gear available, and the cliff is just in front of the resort.

This hotel may be slightly expensive, in terms of cost of stay and dining, compaired to other hotels. But must say, that I think it was worth all the money. Stayed in a fantastic cottage, with a sea view, lovely large rooms. The cleaning was very thorough. Internet works fine. The food was so good, that we ended up eating at the hotel every day. The menu consists of 2 starters (about 200 pesos) 3 main courses (about 500 pesos) and 2 desserts (about 200 pesos) to choose from. Was out diving / snorkeling with them, service was great, and the equipment was in order. The staff is very friendly, and well mannered. Lived there when the corona virus erupted, and the owners helped us a lot, in finding information about our return trip, would like to thank them many times. Is very isolated, so if you want to go out every day, it can be a bit of a problem, for us it was nice, because we loved the tranquility and peace.

We stayed here for 3 nights.beautiful setting overlooking the ocean especially at sunset.because it is so isolated once you're there its not easy to go other places without booking their scooters or van. The roads there ( the last 10 km) are even too difficult for a trike. However the setting and the food once you're there are spectacular.
