Could not fault this hotel! Best service of any hotel we have stayed at worldwide including Maldives which is known for its luxury and amazing service! Delicious food - they had thought of everything! It all started well when our host met us at the airport with cold towels and bottles of water and accompanied us to the hotel giving... More

We are new couple and we stay in this hotel for few days. First of all, many staffs remember our name and would say hi to guests with their name as they don't Serve many guests. They focus on quality of service instead of quantity of room rent out. I guess they only Hv eight to ten villas. Hotel staff... More

Was in Bali last month and when i entered Abaca it reminded me so much of my stay in one of the hotels in Bali. The architectural and interior designs are so oriental. Checking in is done at the convenience of your own room. You are assigned a butler available 24/7 who takes charge of all your needs. Breakfast is... More

Peaceful place. Very relaxing. People are very kind and easy to approach. Butlers are very accommodating. Love the soap and conditioner. A child friendly place. The food is excellent. The place it self is safe. Far from noise.

Abaca is one of best hotel I ever stayed. Staffs are very kind and friendly. We felt it is like at home. There are only 9 rooms so that I do not face to other customers that much and swimming pool is real private pool. Only one thing I didn't like is private beach because it was dirty to swim... More

Perfect place for a long stay especially for a couple. Meditative place to be. Tremendous foods and services. Rooms are clean and has a wonderful views. Staffs are very friendly and supportive. Not a walking distance to the city or town, few minutes to the Mobenpic hotel by taxi. This hotel is definitely the place you want to visit again.

We stayed at Abaca resort at the end of our trip on the Philippines. The setting is beautiful and so were the rooms. Every thing is so well taken care of and especially the pool beds were amazing. The staff went out of their way to make our stay as good as possible, they take care of everything you need.... More

We spent 3 nights at the Abaca before boarding a scuba diving live aboard. It's not a big resort (which is what we prefer). It's not a party resort (also preferred). It is beautiful, calm, quiet, well appointed and the staff is extremely attentive. The villas and rooms are very comfortable, the grounds are beautiful and the restaurant is fabulous.... More

Abaca, is what some might call, has the ideal/correct combination to be called an outstanding boutique hotel. First thing one notices, is the people that works there, staff there are warm, welcoming and they WANT/need to make your stay a memorable one. Friendly, warm and very helpful. Secondly, the ground, limited room (private), beautiful landscape and modern furnishing. Lastly, location,... More
