We had a wonderful and peaceful stay in this resort way back in November 2014. I did not get a chance to leave a review since then. This place is suited for travelers who love to mingle with nature and wanna have a peaceful and relaxing stay in Sabang. If you want to go to the shore, I recommend you...

Such a lovely and genuine place in the middle of the jungle. We only stayed here for one night for visiting the "underground river" but we wished we stayed much longer. There was a lot of thing to do here like hiking in the jungle and sunbathing on lonely beautiful white beaches. They were truly friendly and service-minded and the...

The owner is very helpful and honest. He recommended hiking to the underground river because the ocean was too dangerous ( which it turned out to be as that morning the boats were forbidden to operate). Only thing, order a dinner for the night you arrive wjen you book the place.

My friends and I arrived at Bambua in the dark without anyone to meet us to take us up the path, which was ok. But what was more frustrating about that was that I had emailed the hotel to ask them to arrange a pick up from Puerto princesa which they say they can do but received no reply or...

Please stay away from this accommodation! It is definitly not like it is pictured. First, it is really hard to find, it's in the middle of nowhere, it is desolated, and really dirty and scruffy. As we arrived there was just a Filipino, who didn't know that we will arrive. After a while he showed us our room and was...

If you are looking for simple pure nature experience in the midst of beautiful Sabang this is the place for you. Hear the story...There are lots and lots of and love, sweat, passion, invested to make this Bambua from dream, a vision, to a true reality.
