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. Wonderful breakfast served by our hut each morning. Nice to be able to use the beachfront facilities at another local hotel too (Linaw). We took advantage of the trips package... More

I would suggest EVERYONE Alumbung Cottages. I have nothing bad to say about it - only good words ! Stayed there for one night, but I wish we could have planned a longer stay. The place is absolutely beautiful, VERY clean, very cozy and artistic looking. Nice chilling areas, perfect breakfast, pool and a massage opportunity! You name it !!!... More

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... More

Amazing place to stay in Panglao! Very clean and charming, perfect location - not far away from Alona and still peacefully quiet. I have not a single complaint about the place - everything was working perfectly - even the breakfast was delicious :) We loved to chill on the hammock during late afternoons. All the staff and owners are exceptionally... More

The place us very accessible to the beach, restaurants and Alona area. Will definitely come back. Donot miss the afternoon massage at the rest area. Totally worth it.

Stumbled upon Alumbung on AirBnb. It was the best decision for staying in Panglao. The place was beautiful and all of the rooms and villas were tastefully designed. Everything was nice and breezy. Food was very good and the owners were very friendly. My only advice would be, bring mosquito repellant. The place was very nice!

We stayed at Lumbung Cottage for 3 nights. I booked last minute directly through their web page and I had a quick answer telling me they were expecting us that afternoon. Nice, easy and smooth. It's located close but further enough from Alona Beach so you can scape from the (in my opinion) too noisy atmosphere. Even if you're diving... More

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
