I stopped here on a road trip to Ilocos Norte. The resort is very clean, the staff are competent, well trained and friendly. Sitting in the restaurant looking out over the West Philippines Sea is very relaxing. The room is clean and well maintained with a nice bathroom and a good shower. So often it is the bathroom which lets... More

Accomodation is expensive compared to the services that guests receive. Had to call the front desk three times with 20 minutes interval for the wifi connection, I was told that they will check but no one came to check. Bathroom tissue was not replaced. I don't complain if I pay more but the services should compliment the price.

My first visit in Kahuna was awesome. I enjoyed my stay even more the second time around. Staff were very friendly. Food was really good! It's good for couples, families and team building for a small group.

The hubby was away for a business trip so i figured, why not complete some things in my bucket list? It took me about a week to decide on a place to go on my own - finally picked this because i've never been to La Union, never driven that far alone, never surfed so that'll cross off about 5...

Always for our Business Meetings in San Fernando, La Union we choose Kahuna for the place for us to stay.. The Cabanas are crafted-well.The Food at the Restaurant is also good. The place is very quiet and is good for ta relaxation. The resort also is in the beach front to enjoy the waves of the West Philippine Sea

I stayed 10 days at the resort. At the beginning I was in a bungalow close to the resort entry, and the noise from the road and roosters (lots of roosters) didn't let me sleep very well. I complained and they arranged it very quickly to change me to a quieter bungalow. The staff from hotel and restaurant is very... More

The kahuna Resort and Spa is located at the beach front surfing area of San Juan La Union Philippines. It is a high end resort. The location is very nice because you could watch the surfers riding with the big waves on days that the waves do come out. The place is cozy and the staff are polite and attentive.... More

We had a garden villa room that suited us (2adults and 1 child) just perfectly. The room was clean and well resourced. The room was ready for us upon our arrival at midday, although check in was 2pm. This was definitely great to be able to instantly relax. The restaurant menu option was varied for local and western food choices,... More

The good part about Kahuna are the friendly housekeeping staff and restaurant staff. But considering the price for the accommodations is on the high side, they need to seriously upgrade and improve the facilities. For the beach, there were dog poo on the sand :-( We booked what is supposedly a villa suite but the faucet is hardly working, there... More

I would say this is the best place to stay along the beach if you have kids. The rooms are spacious enough for our family of 5. It had twin beds and we requested an extra bed too. The rooms were clean and well maintained. Though it could use a bit more light as it's a bit too dark when... More
