#5 of 91 Specialty lodging in Baler
A secluded accommodation on the foot of a hill and across the street from an internationally known surf spot in the Philippines - "Cobra Reef." Our Suites are cozy yet stylish and furnished with all the essentials to a great weekend escape. All our suites were put together with a keen eye for detail to appeal to your epicurean taste buds yet a feel not far away from home. It has its own toilet and bath with hot rain shower. All rooms have a private balcony with a view of the sea(for Premier) and the lush mountainside. It is strategically located near Baler’s famous tourists attractions. Not too far from the hustle and bustle of Sabang Beach (9 kms/ 15 minute drive), Kahanamoku boasts of a more private and tailor-fit Baler experience. We are walking distance from the Baler Fish Port and across the street from a world class surf spot that hides behind a magical walk through a mangrove sanctuary. A handful of white sandy beaches and breathtaking sites just a few minute drive from us.

Away from the bustle of Baler town and Sabang beach, Kahanamoku is quite, relaxing and has a lovely vibe. Rooms. are clean and staff are super helpful and friendly as are the owners and family, who made us very welcome. The best thing is the fantastic vegetarian breakfast options. Yummy vegetarian tapsilog, delicious nut and seed oatmeal, veggie omelette - what a great way to tart the day! Lots to do and see in and around Baler even if you are not a surfer. If you are a surfer then this bed and breakfast is close to some great surf spots too. Highly recommend a stay at Kahanamoku!

Our expectations were low, but what the f***? We booked the "Premier Suite" which was described in the website as a room "with an en-suite toilet and bath with hot & cold rain shower stocked with natural toiletries." The room was also claimed to be put together "with a keen eye for detail to appeal to your epicurean taste buds yet a feel not far away from home." They claim that the room has a "private balcony with a view of the sea and the lush mountainside." I don't think that's entirely accurate. . . Going to this place was a great ordeal. To be fair, they were helpful in processing our S-PASS. Unfortunately, we were not informed beforehand that the road going to their place was closed. So we had to circle back and traverse the Pantabangan road. We were delayed for more than 3 hours. We called them and asked if there were any restaurants open nearby their place since we were really hungry and we don't want to stop over causing more delay. They informed us that the restaurant beside their resort was open. We arrived at around 5pm only to find out that the restaurant beside them was closed and does not serve on weekdays. After more than 10 hours of driving, we had to go back to Baler centro to look for food. After 30 minutes of looking for a decent restaurant, we decided to just drive thru Jolibee Baler. That was probably the saddest chickenjoy we've ever tasted. So yeah, we returned to the place to finally rest and freshen up but we found out that the only "toiletries" they had was a shower gel. So we had to go back again to Baler centro to buy essentials at 9pm. The road btw is very dark since there were no lightposts. It was the worst. We just want to highlight some weird things in the room that doesn't make sense. For one, the toilet smells musty, probably due to the fishport nearby. Another is the TV which does not really have any chanels. The balcony doesnt really give a clear view of the sea since the resort is on the other side of the road across the ocean. Lastly, the "toiletries" were bit of a scam. We just prayed that the breakfast was good but then again... they served cold bread. We didnt really expect much from this place since the whole country just came from a pandemic. We really wanted to give a good review and look at the brighter side but really, all we remember are the stress from staying at this place. It was horrible. Traumatic. If you can't deliver basic hospitality, might as well close down. Sorry, but we should have just claimed for a refund.

A beautiful quiet Guesthouse surrounded by Coconut trees and the Ocean! The place is very stylish, the best design you can find in Baler - it's truly made with a lot attention to details. The room we stayed in was very clean, had A/C and a balcony where we could dry our wet clothes after surfing. The staff is very kind and helpful and prepared a delicious and healthy breakfast every morning. We stayed here during our entire trip because we enjoyed the peaceful place and the vibes so much. Highly recommend staying there, you will enjoy it...

Duke Kahanamoku from whom the place was named will surely be happy to have this as his home away from home. The food was healthy yet scrumptious, the rooms clean and the linens crisp and fragrant. This is worth every cent we paid for...

We booked 2 rooms and stayed here for 2 nights. 1 suite with sea view and another standard room. To our dismay, at 3pm when we arrived, the suite room is not ready and hotel owner cited confusion on the booking. He kindly upgraded the other room to a suite room. Then when we finally got the room, it is so basic that it doesn’t have hair dryer, nor hanger, wardrobe, hanger or tissues, there is no amenities at all. The quilt doesn’t even have quilt cover. To our dismay, the basin leak, they came to repair. The next day, when we return from our trip, we found that they did not made our bed and that the basin leaks again. They were kind enough to change our room but the toilet stinks. We have no choice as it is already late and we check out as early as we can the next day. It wasn’t a very pleasant experience though the owner is very hospitable.
