“Paradise in Siargao”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Love the place -- nice bed, spacious room, the outdoor bathroom. Place is clean and the food is great! I love especially the bar where it's so nice to hangout. Would love to come back here again. The owner David prepares the food himself.

Didnt stay here, but had meals here a few times and they were amazing! David the owner is a trained chef from France and the food is prepared to perfection! The design and layout of the restaurant and resort is stunning, a real classy set up no doubt!
Myself and my partner had a few dinners here without the kids and enjoyed every mouth full, from perfectly cooked fish, pork in a mustard sauce, salad with croutons (Camembert melted onto freshly baked baguette) to a sublime chocolate fondant with homemade ice cream.. Definitely a must try even if you dont stay here. The accommodation looked as good as the food tasted..

Our stay in Siargao was amazing and a large part of it was the beautiful tropical villas of Kawayan Siargao.

Highly recommended, and here's why 1. Excellent location, in the beautiful jungle, a minute away from Cloud 9 and 10 min motorbike ride from General Luna. 2. Quality Villas, picture perfect design, private and spacious. They only have 2 villas now, which is perfect as is! Next year Kawayan plans to open a couple of more Villas and install small private pools in each. 3. The best restaurant in the whole Siargao, they serve unbelievable food! Being a chef back in France, David, their manager, serves exquisite fish, chicken, pork dishes and art-like deserts. We have stayed in Kawayan for over a week and David never disappointed! (The family staying the the second villa had celebrated baby boy's birthday during our stay, so David produced a lovely chocolate/fruit cake for the boy. According to his mother, I quote: " This is the best birthday cake he ever got". We tried a piece, the cake was truly delightful! ) 4. Friendly and extremely helpful staff. The 6 girls are warm-hearted, very helpful and always went extra mile. (The girls were making us ginger and lemon tea 5 times a day when we caught a slight cold. ) 5. Local intelligence. David was helping to organise all the things you might need during your stay, like the island hopping, motorbike rental, diving courses, and so much more.

We usually don't do beach holidays in one place twice, well, Kawayan can just be the exception!
We stayed in Kawayan from 28/09 to 05/10/2013!

We were referred to the restaurant for dinner, and we were pleasantly surprised! The restaurant is beautiful! It is unassuming from the outside, but when you get in, it is like stepping into a tropical paradise!

And the food was EXCELLENT! David, the owner, prepared everything and absolutely every dish was delicious - and we were a group of 11 diners!

The restaurant is constructed from indigenous materials, very tropical vibe! The staff is very well trained. There are only two villas for accomodations but they are beautifully appointed and very spacious, set in a tropical garden.

Also,very well situated as it is practically in front of Cloud 9! But, once you enter the compound, it's like escaping into a little sangria -la!

If you are not staying in this resort, at least come for dinner or a meal. It is so worth it!

My wife and I spent 5 nights at the resort. David, the owner, organised our pick up from the airport and greeted us with a warm smile and a cold drink upon arrival. The resort was stunning, definitely a tropical vibe, with a lush garden, and palm trees everywhere. The cottages are really well appointed with A/C, ceiling fans, and an amazing private outdoor shower area with a huge natural rain shower head. Having stayed in more basic accommodations previously, this place was worth every penny. Additionally, David is a terrific cook the food never disappointed. Prices were very reasonable, but what really won us over was the consistent helpfulness and desire to please from the staff and the owner. David introduced us to the local surf and diving guides, organised boat trips, motorcycle hire, massages etc - all at no extra cost, and always checking in after to make sure we were happy. Each morning, we'd be asked what our plans were and be given good advice on where to go, how to get there, etc - signs of a truly good host. Also, having stayed in places before where the staff were unhappy and under paid, you could clearly see here that the staff were well looked after. Overall, highly recommended.

Tips: consider renting a motorbike as there's only surfing (no beach) in the immediate vicinity of cloud 9 and the resort. Check out magpupungko and the 3 islands for beautiful beaches and secluded rock pools!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Kawayan . It was the perfect choice that allowed us an incredible room without breaking the bank account. Its not on the beach but the garden is so nice that you are still always have the sense that you are in a tropical paradise. This truly is a boutique resort – it has lots of intimacy and is very stylish. The location is great too - just a minute walk from the boardwalk yet the resort is set back such that you feel as though you are out of town. The rooms are so big and the outdoor showers really are as nice as they seem in the photo. And, the restaurant . . . . wow. Great food. In short, it was everything we expected and more.
David and his staff are so helpful and friendly. They were always there to help with whatever we needed yet we also always felt we had the privacy we needed for perfect romantic getaway.
We highly recommend Kawayan .

I didn't stay here but we went for dinner. The food and cocktails are very good. The lounge/bar/dinning room is a perfect place to unwind after a day on the waves and catch a game of pool. David the owner has years of experience in Hospitality and it shows. This is a very comfortable, beautiful and classy place. The gardens are spectacular. David was very welcoming and showed us one of the rooms. They are large and very clean. You have to check out the open air shower that they have. If you are a surfer, this place is across the road from Cloud 9. David showed me some photos of him riding that wave. He is world class, and a great resource if you have any questions on where to go.
