There's a zen-like atmosphere to this place. It is quiet and relaxing, perfect for those moments when you want to take things slow, or when your idea of vacation is listening to the chirping of birds, the sound of waves and wind, and long restful sleep.
My friends and I stayed there when we decided to go to Danao for a crazy-awesome adventure.
Every little corner is well thought out and beautiful in its imperfections. I love the mismatched furnitures and old things scattered all over the resort.
It is open for day tours. Both in-house and day tour guests are treated to a quick tour of the premises.
The resort has a livelihood program and your guides can take you to the crafts, sewing, weaving area. You can actually help them by buying their products. So grab a basket or two.
The resort has two dining areas -- one is facing the ocean, the other is at the pool side (where breakfast is served). Wherever you choose to dine, you will enjoy colorful table settings, relaxing ambiance, good service, and delicious food.
Did I already mention they serve delicious food? They do. Try their organic garden salad. And their honey mustard dressing is just wonderful! I love their honeyed putomaya with tsokolate, too. And I absolutely adore their fresh lemongrass juice. Very refreshing. It's a must-try. They serve fresh juices, shakes, tea, and coffee.
Other must-try specialties:
Ube fries and honeyed latik
Honey Spread (my favorite!)
Homemade ice cream!
Speaking of ice cream, we all grabbed a cone each! Creamy and heavenly! And look at those interesting flavors! When you go to the Bee Farm, do not miss this.
