“Great place to chill”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

I recently made a visit to the Spider House on Diniwid Beach Boracay; another visit that I've been meaning to do for some time.

Just getting there prepares you for something different; either walk up past Station 1 and around the cliff on to Diniwid Beach, or take a trike to Diniwid and join the beach via the beach path.

Then go to the end of the cove, walking through Nami and into a short section of cliff caves and overhangs .. then walk down the stairs and you'll find yourself in the Spider House (none to be seen from what I could tell).

This great little establishment has been built in to the cliffs and utilises bamboo and wood throughout. The layout affords both shady and full sun areas and a great seating area looking out over the crystal clear waters and coral, which are teeming with fish (and the odd snake).

The cocktails are delicious and not too pricey and the tables by the edge of the water are brilliantly placed for the ultimate chill out. I didn't stay to eat on this occasion, having come via a delicious lunch at Puka Beach but the menu was varied and enticing.

One of the best parts of Spider House is the steps straight down into the water and a bamboo raft, which is tethered, out on the water which guests are welcome to swim to, and stretch out on, to catch some rays.

Just a really nice, little, venue for a chilled out day or part day and highly recommended to visitors to Boracay.

“Cosy and beautiful location”
Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

A fantastic place to chill out, enjoy the breathtaking view and tranquility of the spot. Nice bar and good wraps and snacks. Spider house is located at the far end of the island, probably the most and last preserved part of Boracay. The structure of spider house bar is made with local bamboo and wood giving it a local touch.

“Great location, nice ambiance, great music.”
Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

Spider House it's a nice place to go, buy a big punch with rum, watermellon and pinapple and just get wasted and chill! If you're a romatic guy and you just meet a nice romantic fellow traveller it's the place to take her to see the sunset and u will shurly get lucky afterwards!

“Boracay Perfection”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Spider House is pretty much a tree-house suspended above the crystal clear Boracay sea, it is divine in every possible way. Away from the hustle and bustle of White Beach, but close enough to either walk along the beach or take a 10 minute (or so) tricycle ride to all the action.

We only meant to stay a couple of days at Spider House, but we loved it so much we spent our whole holiday here. The rooms are delightful, with rooms over the water, where you will catch mind-blowing sunsets, the lights of White Beach twinkling away. The Spider House Family (all the lovely staff) are utterly charming and do everything to make your stay here easy, relaxing, comfortable, fun and really happy.

At Spider House you can wake up for a morning Mango Shake, climb down the ladder from the restaurant area straight into the water for some snorkeling, get some tanning in on the sunlounger suspended over the sea, grab some lunch, take the Spider Boat for a sunset sail, back for some delicious cocktails and look forward to another day at the best place in Boracay. Ahhh bliss - totally chilled.

You'd be bonkers to miss out on staying here.
