From the name itself, the place is pretty hidden smocked in the middle of Guimaras. For 5000 per night, you can book a house on the private island which is good for 10 people. Place is pretty good and pretty neat, you'll definitely have a feel of being secluded in a good way especially the view is breathtaking.

Arriving at the dock, at the prearranged pick-up time (based on the tide), Ali, the resorts pump boat captain and his assistant were waiting for me. Having already loaded the boat with that days’ supply of fresh water, ice, beer sodas, etc. we set off for our 15-minute boat ride to Natago Beach Resort.

As we turned the corner to enter the resorts main bay, my jaw dropped. The first thing I saw was the beautiful “Corner House”, set high up on the rocks and like the name implies, on the corner of the bay, my private villa for the next 4 nights!

Entering the small-secluded bay, is the main white sand beach, a large common area and beachfront accommodation. Upon exiting the boat, I was greeted with friendly “good mornings” from the staff and owner, Emcita. As my bag was taken to my villa, I sat down in the open-air main area, I immediately relaxed, taking in the breathtaking view, presented with a cool towel and asked if I would like something to drink. Chatting easily with Emcita, she introduced me to the staff as they passed by. They became what I call “the magical fairies”.

Following the winding path to my villa, I arrived at the “Corner House”, again my jaw dropped. Its design is impressive, open, and made of dark wood and bamboo. Entering the villa is a balcony with comfortable seating overlooking the sea. The villa has a large master bedroom, a lounge with day bed, bathroom and a second bedroom. Adding to this are the spectacular views from every window (there are lots of them).

As I settled in, I noticed on the table in the balcony area, a cloth covering something. Under it was tea and coffee, with a thermos of hot water, and a bowl of fruit, in the cooler beside were cold refreshments.

Changing into my swimsuit, I headed back out the path, turned left and down a few steps to my “private” beach. The water was warm, calm and crystal clear. I spent a lot of time alternating feeling the white sand between my toes and floating. Note: as all the beaches are public, pump boats from other resorts will come in to use the beach so a few of their guests can enjoy the snorkeling. However, the staff of Natago are there to oversee and do not permit guests to venture near the path that leads to the villa.

That evening I was invited to the “Sundowner”, a wonderful tradition Emcita has, where a table, chairs, a sun umbrella and cooler are placed near the bbq area, which juts out into the sea. (If you are lucky, the tide will be out and you can see the coral from above). Everybody is invited to join, including her brother, sister-in-law and staff. It is a very peaceful time to sit, talk and listen to the waves. The extra bonus is hearing Emcita sing as the sun sets. So special.

Dinner was served at 7pm in the main area. Again being presented with a cool towel, something to drink, and three courses. Upon arrival, I was asked my food likes, as I was new to the country, I requested traditional Filipino. Every meal I had, was delicious, and made with fresh ingredients from that day.

Now about the “the magical fairies”. Every day, I woke up and headed out to the balcony, the “fairies” had brought hot water, fruit and bread for me. At night when I returned after dinner, candles lit and my bed readied for the night. During my stay, I had developed a cough. That night, Emcita mentioned that sucking on pieces of ginger would help as well as basil steeped in hot water would do the trick. When I arrived back to the villa, there was a small package of ginger on my nightstand. In the morning, a mug with fresh picked basil was included on my breakfast table. On my last full day, I decided to spend the whole day at the villa. Not only was breakfast there, but also at 1pm, I was brought a yummy veggie and egg sandwich with a mango. In the afternoon, I went to take a nap, when I awoke; there was cold beer in my cooler. Not once did I hear the “fairies”.

I came to Natago for a break away from regular life. I was happily forced to be off the grid as there is no internet; power is limited to the nighttime and showering was by bucket. However, I was treated like royalty, never needing for anything as it was thought of first, including having an in-villa massage. Emcita, her staff, the setting and understated luxury made this a perfect time out.

I have already made my next reservation.

I like this better than Ave Maria island. We spent the most time here and had more fun when we were just the only visitors. No entrance fee you just need to make a donation from the hanging bottle.

My kids had fun playing at the sandbar which you can use to walk between two islands!!!

You can also rent the entire house to yourself and have the private beach all to yourself.

You will never see an island hopping tour in Guimaras without the famous Natago Beach on its itinerary. A name which really fits the description of the place because it is indeed a hidden paradise. Our boatman at first is hesitant to take us to Natago Beach and told us that we can only pass or take a glimpse of the famous beach house on the rock because it is a private beach and we have to pay an entrance fee of php50./pax if we would like to take pictures of the island. Seeing the beauty of the beach and the mini sandbar peaking as we take a glimpse from our boat, I told our boatman that even if the fee cost php100./pax, we will pay just to have a piece of this paradise. Awesome perfect! is what I'd describe this place.. the white powdery sandbar, clear water and the house on the rock, is an ideal setup for a quiet peaceful retirement. During some photo ops with the house on the rock background, I kidded our boatman, that I owned the place and he asked, "if you own the place, where is your name"? And I told him, "It's hidden", that's why its called Natago Beach. And we both laughed. After admiring the place, a little dip in the water and must-have photo ops, we left the place and wave goodbye to the caretaker/owner of the beach and he also wave back to us.

Natago Beach is one among privately-owned resorts in Guimaras included in island-hopping itinerary, the other two being Isla Naburot and Fairy Castle. Boatmen would tell in advance, however, that you can just pass by or go around boating near the area; swimming nor getting close to the shore was prohibited.
Coming off SEAFDEC, Ave. Maria, Turtle Island, Baras beach & cave, and now Natago ... I hurried myself to the bow of the boat stood in admiration as i observe the beauty of nature with the fascination of a child. It was wonderful! I asked the boatman to get closer to the shore - hesitant as he was I told him am willing to pay however much the owner would charge us for getting off the shore - I wanted to feel what it feels like to be in the privacy of the resort.
Nestled in a cove protected by islets, the water was calm and crystal clear (fishes and underwater creatures highly visible), we anchored close to a small sand bar that connects two islets of the resort. The breathtaking sight of a house on top of a limestone rock formation was within my grasp as my foot touches the powdery white sand of the beach. Finally, I live the dream, picture perfect in unperturbed prestine beach of Natago :)

Very white and fine sand. Not a crowded place. This is actually one of the Island Hopping spots. They have two or more secluded beaches that you can have photo ops and actually swim there. The water is clear and clean. Very peaceful place since not a lot of tourist visits this place and stay for a longer time. But, I would definitely book my next stay on this resort.

A private resort that's not open to the public.
No services of any kind. You want it - bring it. Food, water, booze etc. No phones or internet.
Lucky enough to have stayed here for 3 weeks back in 2009/10.
Been gradually upgraded since these photos.
Nothing to do except swim around the coral reefs or sit back, relax & enjoy the surrounds.
Great local people.

This island is close by to Guimaras .. short pump boat ride .. it was low tide so the sand bar was visitable...
no services here of any kind but some vendors with Chips and drinks ..
good place to have a peaceful moment in the sea or on the sandbar .. although it a a little rough sand type ..
there is a German-owned rest house still being constructed .. so this is private but open to the public .. that’s cool .

Of all the island hopping we did, this is where we stayed longer. Had photo ops as well as we did our swim here. Just be careful when crossing and getting up to the location of deck as there are rocks, shells and even some trash that you could step on it. It is advisable to use aqua shoes or trekking sandals. We saw a man selling buko for 3 for P100. Not your typical Manila-size but a small one. Though still it has plenty of buko juice and we even ask the seller to cut it into 2 so we can eat the flesh.
