TRAVELER ALERT!

This lodge, while it is within the limits of the municipality of Banaue, is not in the downtown area where most tour and lodging activity occurs. It's located about 9 km to the west of Banaue proper and very near the dividing line between the municipalities of Banaue and Hungduan.

NOT A GOOD CHOICE!

1) This lodge is in a very remote area and on a road often blocked by landslides. The road surface was recently paved but much of the road is merely a cut on the side of a mountain, a very steep mountain which drops rocks from above after nearly every rainfall. This often blocks the roadway and the road crews need two or three days to clear the very large ones. If you're not on a flexible schedule you might have transport problems.

Note the very steep mountain on the left from where the rocks and mud fell; it's at about an 80 degree angle, making it very hard to prevent them. That same steep drop continues downward on the other side and there are no guardrails to stop a vehicle sliding out of control. (Click photo to enlarge)

2) There are no shops nearby for snacks, nothing to entertain the kids. The nearest restaurant, other than this lodge's own, is 9 km away in downtown Banaue.

3) The owner is a foreigner who in the past was investigated by the government for mistreating his employees. We can't recommend this place; much better to spend your money for lodging in the downtown area where the owners are Filipinos and will treat you with respect.

BATAD! Batad is the primary outlying destinaton for most visitors. Because of recent road improvements you no longer have to stay overnight in Batad. You can instead leave early from Banaue for Batad, walk the terraces and see Tappiah Falls, then return to your lodging in Banaue. Learn more about Batad.
PRONUNCIATION: Most Malay languages give stress to the second syllable so Banaue is pronounced "Bah NOW way". Similarly Batad is "Bah TAHD"; Hungduan is "Hung DEW an"; Mayoyao is "Mah YO ya oh".
ALL PRICES on this website are in Philippine Pesos (PHP). Please remember that Banaue operates on a cash economy only. There are neither ATMs nor banks in town. Credit cards are not accepted. Here's a Currency Convertor
