More than a hotel, Punta del Este is an authentic getaway. It gives you the chance to live your retreat or your holiday in genuine privacy, enjoying relative seclusion and yet having the benefit of proximity to essential services. From the top of the beautiful green promontory, nearly all around it, you are able to catch the awesome sight of the broad ocean with its islands, indented coast and sandy coves, as well as the view of the nearby beach and, behind it, the lowland villages imbedded in wide coconut groves. From a distance you can also watch the small town’s life. In just five minutes you get there easily, looking for shops and services. In the background of this unique community, the skies offer incessant scenes of marine clouds gathering above the jungle and engulfing inscrutable mountains. Beyond the landscape reside the mysteries of the hinterland and its indigenous people. Better than a suite, your accommodation is a large villa. Absolutely exclusive, highly private, hidden from onlookers, even clothing optional, it becomes your home for the duration of the stay. Staff and cook are at your service, striving to provide what you need, that it’d be food, drinks, information, means of transport, access to activities and wellness services. More private than a restaurant, we operate in self-catering mode. After planning the meals with you, the cook goes shopping. You may even join her to the market (bringing your food is possible, no corkage fee). She prepares and serves the meals. If you love cooking, she is your assistant. Alternatively, at our smaller bungalow or studios, you will be cooking for yourself. Anyway our staff does the cleaning in the morning and remains attentive to your needs, providing information and assistance for transportation, activities and wellness. Accommodation: + Two exclusive villas, the equivalent of complete suites, each with its own private amenities: swimming pool, kitchen, dedicated cook and staff, terraces, garden with “kubo” gazebo, path to the nearby beach. One of the villas takes 8 guests in 4 bedrooms with private bathroom, the other takes 10 guests in 4 bedrooms and a mezzanine, each with private bathroom. Approximately two minutes down to the beach. + Two studios, in the immediate vicinity of either villa, each offering room for 2 to 3 guests on a large double bed, plus a sofa bed or a folding bed if requested. Private bathroom and complete kitchen. Private balcony with sea and mountain view in one of them. Two minutes down to the beach for one and three for the other. + One seclusive “bahay-sudio”, or small bungalow, nested on a platform of the cliff, half-way down to the beach. It’s a small native style house with room for 2 or 3 guests on a king-size bed and a folding bed if requested. Private bathroom and complete kitchen. Private balcony terrace. One minute down to the beach. We assist our guests in finding and organizing any activity or excursion that they would fancy and is available in the area. We can arrange your transfer from the airport to the villas. Free shuttle from/to the arrival/departure pier in Puerto Galera.

We stayed at Punta Del Este - unfortunately for a very short trip only. The location is superb, with sweeping views and great sunrises. The owner is a retired French businessman, looking back at decades of life and experience in Asia, especially The Philippines. It is his home, built and decorated with style and class, and the entire place exudes an air of warmth and hospitality. Contrary to most rural places in The Philippines, Punta Del Este can be proud of its food, prepared fresh daily by the in-house chef. Dinners on the terrace, with a panoramic view of the ocean, are very hard to beat. With two daily 30-minute flights from Manila by Air Juan's seaplane (safe, comfortable, and punctual), Puerto Galera is now easy to reach, and a place not to miss. Punta Del Este is highly recommended, for small groups, families and people looking for a beautiful place to find peace.

We knew about the place through TripAdvisor. Later we learned that they're more actively promoting it in AirBnB but we're still able to arrange for the weekend directly through their website. The response of Ms. Merlita, the Property Manager was prompt. We reserved and booked for Villa Kasbah Remo. We came in a group of ten and the rooms are spacious enough to accommodate even a bigger group. An extra bed was even arranged for our driver. Unfortunately we came on a rainy weekend. That however did not prevent us from enjoying the place. The view was excellent even though it was downcast and windy. Our interaction with Ate Emilda, the cook was warm and easy. The dishes she prepared for us were all delicious. Going down to the beach through the concrete stairs was an excellent exercise for us. The beach isn't great for swimming but the well-kept pool beside our villa easily compensated for that. The living room and dining areas were well furnished and we're all able to easily sit and relax ourselves even including a family of four who came to visit us during our stay. I highly recommend this place for families looking for a private and amazing weekend in Puerto Galera, with a beautiful view of the sea and nearby islands.

I had stayed here last year. Very appreciated with our house that can accommodate all of our groups. "Ate" helped us a lot in finding the place for touring around Puerto Galera. Also we can learned the livelihood of nearby community there near our accommodation.
