A little oasis”
Rooms were quirky but very nice. Spotlessly cleaned each day. If u can rent a motorbike for the duration of your stay then this is far better value then staying near Alona.
We stayed only one night and wanted to stay more. Its a beautiful place. The only bad thing was that the windows dont have mosquito net, and at night there was a blackout so the fan turned off and it was too hot, but we didnt want to open de window because of that...
I loved the design and layout of the hotel, feels rustic and tribal. The lounge area is inviting. Alona beach nearby. But the service seems a little scarce
nice chilled out spot with lovely bungalows”
I got upgraded to a larger bungalow on arrival with 2 floors which was really comfortable and would recommend. It is a nice peaceful place and relaxing. However the staff aren't welcoming to outside visitors who aren't staying there, my friend stopped by for me and they were unfriendly in allowing him to wait till I returned or connect to the wifi to contact me. Also be careful doing laundry, they took mine to an outside laundrette so I had difficulty getting it back on time on the morning I wanted to depart. Overall, I enjoyed my stay here.
Pieceful place next to all activities”
Alumbung is located at around 20 min by walk of Alona Beach and 5 min by motobikes. It is really peaceful and we really enjoyed it. Sylvie and Roberto warmly welcomed us. We would definitely go back there for next trip to Bohol.
Everything was totally gooooood !!!awesome!!!”

good room but small swimming pool and location good”
good room but small swimming pool location good.
The cottage is nice and cozy, the garden is beautiful. The owner and crew are really nice, and I strongly recommend to have your breakfast there: it was the best we’ve ever had in the entire Philippines! Cons: a bit far from Alona beach (20min walk) / noisy at night due to the numerous roosters (that’s true everywhere in the Phils, just be aware of it and bring earplugs). You can rent a bike from them, it’s affordable and we visited Bohol for a reasonable price (tarsier sanctuary / chocolate hills).
Good place to get away”
A nice remote location to start the vacation, not too far from the nearest civilization. Everything is organized and nice. We had no issues with getting the help and info we needed to make our stay nice.
Situated about 3K from the tourist intensity of Alona Beach we spent 4 days at Alumbung and were pleased with the choice. Quiet, beautifully presented and relaxed in tropical gardens, the cottages are comfortable, clean and relaxing. We chose the family cottage, even though we were only a couple, because we wanted the cooking facilities which worked well for us. Only downside is the upstairs bedroom traps the heat. Noticeably hotter than the ground floor. There is AC up there, we just happen not to want to sleep with AC. But this is a minor point and would definitely recommend as a cut above the average lodgings
Great stay at Alumbung”
My boyfriend and I had a perfect stay at Alumbung. The place is nicely decorated, is very quiet as it only has 6 rooms and it is close to the most famous beaches in Panglao as well as some bars and restaurants. Sylvie and her husband were super helpful and kind and even helped me get a doctor when I got sick. Thanks so much for being such great hosts! Totally recommend the place.
Great place to stay for 7 days”
The place is quiet and relaxing. Sylvie, Roberto and their staff made sure that we get everything we need. Breakfast is great! Wifi is limited which can be good if you want to disconnect. You need to go to go to the front hut to connect. One important note though is to bring a mosquito repellant.
grate place , relax and PERFECT.Great staff.”
They have a nice pool, beautifull garden, and relax places in that. we really felt great there, we rent a motorbike and we were in alona beach in 3 minutes, for a romantic time in alona , its no necesary pay a lot of money. If we return to Alona we will ask for Alumbung. The people were really nice, we had our breakfast in the terrace of our small garden. Really nice pleople. The only thing its that i would like to have minibar or something like that our house, because you can buy things there but if its late nobody can give that to you. For the rest perfect.
Simple and nice”
We spend two days in the lovely cottage hut. It is simple cottage without any fancy amenities, however the feel was good. The "backyard" tropical style cottage is lovely. Due to it's location, night time will be a bit warm than expected. The owner are very helpful and warmly accommodated us. Feel like home!
Staying at Alumbung wAs really great. The rooms were unique, it makes you feel more relaxed because of their theme. It was an amazing stay. The owners were very hands-on and accommodating. Will definitely recommend this place to any type of traveller. This place is really amazing and worthy.
relaxing days in a nice hotel”
I spent 5 days together with a friend at Alumbung Tropical Living and we really enjoyed the days there. Our cottage was very nice and clean, located in a beautiful garden. The staff as well as the owners were very friendly and helpful. Even if the hotel is not located directly at the beach it is easy to go to either to Danao or Alona beach. As Alona beach is relativily crowded we preferred to go to Danao beach which was located only a 5 minutes walk away from Alumbung Tropical living. We also rented a motorbike at the hotel to explore Panglao and Bohol and we would definitively recommend this hotel if one is planning to visit Panglao and/or Bohol
Lovely staff, relaxing place”
The owners of Alumbung did everything to make our stay pleasant. They organised an excellent diving trip to Balicasag, arranged motor bikes, did our laundry, served us great breakfast, and allowed us to use the swimming/beach facilities of the nearby resort. Alumbung is located a bit outside of Alona beach, which is easy to reach via a tricycle (5-10 minutes).
very interesting place to stay”
Alumbung Tropical living was very impressive, it is small,just several tree house but you can have enough private space, the garden is cute, and the owners are very helpful and friendly. It is not on alona beach but easy to catch a motorcycle with like 5mins ride to alona beach, but in fact I would love to spend sometime in the garden if my stay is longer.
Authentic and unique stay”
Unique stay as we never stayed in the stand alone thatched house, quite and nice verandah that can view out to the garden and sky. Nice landscape setting. Mini-environment but cozy. We felt private exclusive being staying here with the little money spent.
A charming stay in a quiet and unique hotel”
I think if you know what to expect when staying at Alumbung, you'll have a great time! This isn't a 5 star oceanside resort, and it doesn't pretend to be. What it is, is a great place with an amazing atmosphere that really makes you feel like you're on a special vacation. The villas are huge. These aren't standard hotel rooms, so don't expect that. The owners were extremely nice and helpful. We got massages, rented scooters, and asked a fair amount of questions of the owner and he was always great. Be advised this is not on Alona Beach, and the food and entertainment options around are limited, but about a 5 minute ride will take you to the action. If you want a super low price, unique, quaint, and quiet stay on Panglao, I recommend Alumbung.
