The Kubo is the traditional Filipino bamboo and Nipa palm hut that is still common in rural areas. In warm weather they take advantage of any tropical breeze, but are also dry and cosy if it rains. The walls and flooring are made of bamboo while the ceiling, roof is made of Nipa.
The bedroom is double walled with sawali, which is a mat made from woven split bamboo. Sawali has been used for centuries to make walls in Filipino houses.
Our Kubos are PHP1500 per night and can sleep up to four people in double upper and lower bunk style beds.
Each Kubo, has its own sala, which in a western style house is like a patio. This is where you can relax in the shade and chat or play cards, or just enjoy the ambience of your tropical island retreat.
At the moment we have 3 kubos available and each has its own light powered by solar.
