Our in 2007 newly built authentic tropical style beach huts are located under palm trees at the fence line of the resort and only 5 meters away from the beautiful waterline and boat jetty at the beach. They have been constructed using a native style to fit in the surrounding tropical landscape.
Each room is equipped with cable TV and electric fan (there is no need of an A/C due to the prominent location directly on the beach with it's own fresh and natural breeze), and we now have internet connection. We also have toilet and bath facilities there, all enclosed with a luxury and native bamboo fence to guarantee your privacy. The huts are big and can accommodate groups or big families of up to 8 to 12 people. We also have installed a movable divider door between the two huts, so if the need arises we can combine the two rooms and convert them into one huge room, good to hold a conference or seminar for 25 to 30 people. In front of the huts there is a long and comfortable beachfront terrace, where you can enjoy the view of the outlying islands of Siquior and Apo.
