Me and my boyfriend stayed at Alumbung and had a wonderful time there. Can recommend this place to everyone who goes to Bohol. You can have a nice breakfast here and go to Linaw Beach Resort for dinner and lunch.

I'm a traveller who's so attracted to nipa huts and nature that's why when i saw Alumbung's photos from the internet, i immediately booked. I was welcomed by Roberto, one of the owners, who is friendly and accommodating. I was actually expecting to get the nipa hut room, but it was already taken. BUT i could not complain to the...

My boyfriend and I booked to stay 5 nights here into Early December 2016. When we arrived, we were really touched by the welcome sign - personally updated for each new guest, along with a board of information about the weather, tides and sunset/sunrise times - all lovely touches and felt welcoming. This warm welcome was abruptly interrupted when we...

Dear Cherie and Matt, If we understand it well, in a way, if we would not have asked you to pay on arrival it would have been fine….. so it’s all about the payment…. Also the payment of what you consumed in the mini bar which is there for your convienience. As you mentioned you booked in Hostelworld. I recommend...

We stayed in the Alungbung Villa for a week and really enjoyed our stay. It is a quiet and relaxing place with wth lots of personal details. Sylvie and Roberto are lovely hosts and very helpful. They serve a nice breakfast and the little pool is perfect for a morning dip. We apriciated the location, away from the Aluna Beach.

Alumbung made my vacation very homey. It made my Panglao experience memorable and unique. Thanks to Sylvie, Roberto, and their staff who are very reliable. I enjoyed their house rules. Very basic. Also, the smell of katol nailed the tropical experience! :) Way to go guys!

I enjoyed my stay at Alumbung Tropical Living at Panglao. I stayed here from Oct 6-11, 2016. Very homey, cozy and quiet place. The villa and the other huts/rooms are located inside a private compound, thus you are assured of security. This is for people who wants to relax and have utmost privacy. If you're looking for a "party place"...

We stayed here for 4 nights and didn't want to leave! Such a wonderful place to relax and unwind. We loved our Balinese Cottage. Great for the two of us.

We travelled asia for 6 weeks (Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines), but Amumbung was the nicest accomodation we had on this trip. We stayed in one of the Nipa-huts which are small, but with a great garden that provides privacy and secludedness. Everything is designed with the heart of the owners so that we felt home from the very beginning. There is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Alumbungs is a small tropical garden approximately 25 minutes away from Tagbilaran and three minutes ride from the renowned Alona Beach. The special shape of the villa and cottage roofs is derived from the typical Balinese Lumbung structure where the upper part of each hut served as a rice barn and the bottom part as a meeting place for the family. This is the perfect place for family vacations, honeymooners or for people that just want to relax. ... more   less
