We stayed for 2 nights, we enjoyed the location, it is on top of a cliff with stunning sunsets. The villa we stayed was excellent, i loved the room decoration and the bathroom, open area, nice floor. Wifi was enough. As pos/neg it is far from everything, so if you don't mind to stay there and get out for your... More

What a shame that this lovely place is spoiled by the simple fact that the owners don't give a hoot about their guests. One has the distinct impression that all they care about is squeezing as much money out of you as possible, that because of the remote location, you're stuck, they know it, and they take advantage of you....

First of all we do not need to spread wrong information to our upcoming guests. This is not very helpful for the future. It seems in your case it’s all about money! We are very known to be a quiet place far away from everything! As many times recommended read first where you will go for vacation – written also... More

I cannot praise this place enough! We stayed here for 3 nights in a Prestige Villa in November 2015 and never wanted to leave. It has set the bar impossibly high for any future resorts we stay in.

Whilst island hopping in the Philippines we decided to visit the little island of Siquijor for a few days and booked in to Kawayan Holiday Resort. It is better described as a boutique hotel. We had one of the comfortable standard size bungalows with a shaded terrace and stylish outdoor bathroom. The room was easy to keep cool with air... More

We came to visit this island mainly because we fell in love with the pictures of the resort. Perfect choice! The resort is not big, but this is one of the great things about it.

It was the worst hotel experience that I ever had. I apologize for such a long review but the experience was too horrible that is necessary to describe everything was happen. The owners do not know how to behave to their guest, they are unfriendly and unhelpful, customer service does not exist at all. Before my arrival I asked them... More

The good thing is, that there are always two sides of the stories. When the management read this review we find that perfectly reflects the character of this guests as we experienced. If someone really likes to believe their story feel free and it’s just fair to also read the other side of the story. One thing is certain, why... More

What a wonderful place, quiet and secluded, perched upon the top of a dramatic rock cliff. The resort has a magnificent 180 degree view of a beautiful ocean (from the cliff tops) and access to wonderfully clear and calm waters for snorkelling (at the base of the cliffs) with a nice staircase and shady open air space in between.

Good day. Thank you for your review. The only issue according to you was just the water thing?! QUOTE: "1 pitcher per room that is refilled every day. It's quite hot there and it's just not enough in general"... ...We had/have plenty of water in the Restaurant/Bar. Therefore more water was just a view meters away. And since you claim... More

Our cottage on the cliff overlooking the sea was a very attractive home -- an open yet private feeling one can't get in a hotel room. The property is very private, and during the uncrowded time we were there felt almost like a private estate. The isolated feeling fits well with Siquijor, an uncrowded island with a very quiet and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 2011 opened KAWAYAN HOLIDAY RESORT is under Swiss management is the place for your perfect holiday. Enjoy your stay in a family atmosphere, away from the stressful mass tourism. Also, we place high emphasis on discretion and respect for your privacy. The predicate "unique" deserves the splendid and unique view of the sea towards the sunset and the world-famous diving spots Apo Island. Not to mention the unique rocky landscape on the island surrounded by turquoise and warm tropical water. Suitable also for non-divers. The resort has its own professional dive center and two private diving boats. We offer daily diving along the coast of Siquijor as well as day trips to three other dive spots (depending on number of divers), which are 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours away from the resort. On our doorstep is the most magnificent house reef is located on Siquijor, directly in a marine sanctuary. Here revealed to you a breathtaking and unspoiled underwater world, which boasts a colorful variety of species. Perfect for snorkelers and divers. While at other resorts at low tide rocks, algae and mud dominate the white sand beach and the water pulls back 100 meters, you can with us still dive in turquoise water - 24 hours swimming, diving, snorkeling is possible. The KAWAYAN HOLIDAY RESORT is located approximately half an hour from the port of arrival at one of the most beautiful coastlines of Siquijor. The boutique style resort is located in a quiet location and is surrounded by tall coconut trees, nestled in a rocky, rugged landscape garden by the sea. The PERFECT place for relaxation - however, NOTHING for highlife -, party addicts and restless, from traveling stressed backpackers. Our place but also the whole island of Siquijor are rather quiet. The next major villages of San Juan and Lazi can be reached by motorbike in about 15 minutes. Siquijor itself is a 30 minutes drive away. ... more   less
