Kalinaw resort is the accomplished dream of two French guys who decided to leave Paris for a tropical life. Located 500 meters from world-famous surf spot Cloud 9, on the island of Siargao, in the Philippines, our resort is facing a peaceful lagoon. Both of us will be proud to introduce you to our little paradise.

My best friends and I stayed at Kalinaw for 3D and 2N as our last hurrah for the summer. We got the pool villa which is huge -- it has two toilets and baths, and two huge beds. Each bathroom has its own extra charm. The two sides of the villa is just divided by sliding panels so

Response from Kalinaw-resort, Owner at Kalinaw Resort
Responded 1 May 2016
Dear John, Thanks to take time to comment our establishment but honestly some of your remarks are a bit exaggerated and i will explain you why. First, i am using internet here everyday to manage all bookings and functioning of the resort so i can tell you that i have no problem to work with our our internet connection. We are on an island and with an average bandwidth of 2Mb/sec it is more than honorable. Some people come here in the restaurant to work cause we have one of the strongest connection around. On top of that we have 2 different internet connections to insure the best internet service in the resort. About sightseers, same with you i don't like they ruin the peaceful of the resort so years ago we implement a policy with our staff that walk-ins only have access to the restaurant area and beach facing it. The villas and Pool area is totally private. Unfortunately it can happen sometimes that people walking along the beach intrude in this area but according to the international law, beach is a public territory and we can not close it. For your information, all our 4 Deluxe villas have been renovated from roof to floor end of last year so i am really surprised when you mention that we need to invest money in maintenance. Honestly, most of our guest can not believe that the resort is 8 years old. According to my management staff, your companion was sick during your stay and from your demand we could not spray the villa. We are surrounded by vegetation and insects can enter if we can not spray. Things we do everyday when we can. We are not perfect but we spend a lot in time and investment to keep our resort at the top. Hope to welcome you again soon despite few imperfections. Best regards Fred & Pierre

We stayed in Kalinaw Resort which is owned by 2 French guys. They only have 5 villas so the place was very spacious, well kept and private. The girls in the restaurant are so cute, friendly & accommodating, as well as the managers, Alex and Mika. Truly fantastic service!

My husband and I spent three lovely nights at Kalinaw Resort. The location is beautiful. The resort has only five rooms/villas which are all sea facing. The food in restaurant is excellent. The staff are all pleasant and helpful. We will definitely be back.

"All villas are nice but the villa with the pool is by far the best one..."
"Any villa would do but for connectivity purposes, Villa 1 might be a better option."
"Go someplace else, or go for a hostel and splurge for a night a Dedon."
"The Deluxe Villa has plenty of space and a plunge pool"
"Get the villa with the pool. This is located at the far end of the resort. All villas are good."
