#1 of 5 B&Bs / Inns in Zamboanguita
More than one hundred steps lead down to Kookoo’s nest Eco-lodge, which comprises of six simple, comfortable, native-style bamboo beach cottages and rooms, with a central restaurant. They are set in a pocket of woodland that slopes steeply down to the edge of a small secluded sandy cove, facing the sunset. The buildings have been beautifully constructed by artisans from the village using traditional techniques, from locally sourced bamboo and the leaves of the Nipa-palm. The ladies from the village prepare excellent fresh food for the restaurant and see to guest’s everyday needs, while their husbands tend the herb gardens, carry provisions, and drive the boats. A small dive-shop offers tuition and diving on the beautiful coral reefs that surround the peninsula. Snorkeling gear is available for those who do not dive, and Kayaks can be rented for exploring Tambobo bay, fishing village and remote beaches.

We enjoyed 5 days of eating, reading, swimming and snorkeling with the Kookoo’s nest. Same quality and service as we experienced 9 years ago! We actually slept in the same bamboo hut too! Staff were very friendly. So many fish and coral to see.

It was a great choice picking Kookoo's Nest out of the many options in Negros Oriental. It was exactly as how it was described - an escape from the city in simple yet tastefully designed eco-friendly cottages. The food was healthy and delicious, and Jamie and Nikki were hospitable and welcoming hosts. We also did a dive at Apo Island and Jamie was a patient and attentive dive master. Facilities are great (no aircon though so you'll have to be comfortable with that - along with the wildlife :D), the staff were very efficient and friendly, their house reef was teeming with marine life, and overall was great value for money! Bonus was a small cliff you could easily climb up to (~10mins) get a spectacular view of the area. Thank you, Jamie and Nikki!

If you’re looking for a place to relax and re-charge in a rustic, yet comfortable, and environmentally conscious setting then KooKoo’s Nest is your secret spot. This was a little slice of paradise that exceeded our expectations. Yes, there are things one has to be aware of: the steps getting to/ from the resort; beds are double size; no AC in the bamboo cottages and it is isolated but if these things don’t bother you, or you’re seeking this kind of experience, then KooKoo’s Next is a perfect getaway. Despite their simplicity the cottages are very clean and well made; the bed was more comfortable then expected, the view and setting outstanding. It’s hard to top being lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean and waking-up to birdsong and an amazing view. The food and drinks

Love love love the Kookoos nest. It was a home away from home. Having travelled the Philippines for some weeks coming here was amazing. Shirley Valentine style home made chips, gorgeous gorgeous coffee which was so lacking in and around the south of Negros (mostly just nescafe in a sachet)... And to top it off a paradise haven for some gorgeous golden retrievers, which made me so home sick for my golden boys ❤️

We needed a day to decompress from all our travels and diving. We found the place to do just that. Ensure you eat at the restaurant as it an amazing experience. The kitchen staff makes all item from scratch and you can tell. Drinks are also not to be skipped as they are delicious as well. Our accommodation was over looking the beach on the second floor. We want to return and we have not even left yet. What a lovely destination!
