Outstanding hospitality
3 recent guests complimented Melissa for outstanding hospitality.
We are an ecotourism and camping destination featuring this family cabin, a bamboo yoga shala, campsites close to the ocean, and common outdoor kitchen and bathroom facilities. We welcome guests who want to disconnect from the stress of daily life to enjoy our quiet stretch of beach, savor the view, and marvel at the stars. This is the place to renew your relationship to nature! Nearby and on-site activities include swimming, snorkeling, hiking, waterfall treks, yoga, or simply relaxing!

The space
As we are dependent on solar power and a boat ride (or 45-min walk) into town, proper preparations are required in order to be comfortable in our mountain and beach retreat.

Please note that we have no food, no refrigerator and no ice on-site. You must buy and bring all your own food for the duration of your stay. We recommend you bring your icebox/ cooler and fill it will ice and supplies in town. There is a fresh fish market in Brgy Aplaya, just ask around for the 'isdahan'. There are also food supplies available near the bus/van terminal and at the feeder port.

We allow self-cook in a shared kitchen and provide use of our LPG stove and basic pots, dishware, and cutlery. Please bring your cooking essentials such as oil, sugar, salt, vinegar etc.

We can also provide ‘paluto’ service (we cook your food) for a small fee per meal. Please message us.

We provide glamping essentials including tent, mattress, bedding, and bath towels. Noteworthy and useful items to bring include shampoo/ conditioner, tumbler for water, flashlight, powerbank, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, beach towel, rain jacket and toiletries/medicine kit.

We do get phone signal with LTE for data out here. The Globe network tends to work better than Smart or other networks. Phone charging is available provided we have sunny days. However if you do have a powerbank better to bring it along as charging slots are limited.

Guest access
You can access the whole property except the caretakers' cabin.

Location

Dingalan, Central Luzon, Philippines

The property is beachfront and your own piece tropical paradise. If its a fancy resort you're looking for this is not it. This is the authentic, off grid luxury experience. It's designed for you to get away from it all and enjoy the natural sights and sounds.

We encourage guests to explore Dingalan! The usual tourist attractions include White Beach, the Lighthouse and Mountain View, each just a short hike away from your tent. We love Lamao Caves for the swimming (in a cave!) and the snorkeling. Boats will take you there for an extra P500. Tanawan Falls (the most popular) or any other waterfalls excursion can be arranged through us or directly with the Tourism Office.
