Be inspired by the natural Philippine beach life, the richness of nature and an imaginative, creative and peaceful environment. Experience the moment, the natural tranquillity and adventurous activities, diverse impressions and perspectives. Listen to the sound of the sea, become acquainted with new cultures and people and enjoy delicious food and positive vibes during your much longed-for timeout. The camp grounds encompass a spacious area with over hundred palm trees — 1,5 ha in size. About 20 guests live in individually designed dwellings suited to different budgets and tastes — two villas, two chalets, two open huts, as well as a five room guest house. All the accommodation has an unparalleled view of the sea, as well as a loving attention to detail. Cabuyao village is 60 km from the airport and the island capital, Puerto Princesa City. The 1 hour journey alone is anexperience: A mix of country roads and off-roads, traveling through the beautiful jungle to the other side of the island. The secluded location and the tranquillity of the fishing village, our do-it-yourself mentality and ingenious leisure activities contribute to making you relaxed, well-balanced and happy. All the accommodation has an unparalleled view of the sea, as well as a loving attention to detail. Eat. Stay. Love. We cook slow food, mainly vegetarian, with seasonal, regional ingredients. The Philippine cuisine is creatively supplemented with our own ideas and experience, as well as influence from Thailand and Europe. Hence you can enjoy individual, delicious meals with the typical "Soulcamp taste". Special highlights at the camp are Sunset barbecues with freshly caught fish from the fishermen, home-baked bread, home-made müsli as well as fresh coconut water from our palm trees. For shared cooking sessions we have set up an outdoor kitchen with open fireplaces and cooking grates. A great way to encourage the exchange between guests and the crew and become acquainted with the traditional cuisine. LEISURE TIME Sun, beach and the sea are the basic ingredients for a pleasant holiday. At our camp there are numerous other things that also make the trip unforgettable: We offer you cooking courses or organize excursions by boat and basketball games with the village team. Those who want to climb a coconut palm and then skillfully crack open the nut themselves with a machete, can learn that here. One very authentic way of exploring the bay is with a little baruto boat and paddle. Other shorter activities are swimming and rambling. And those who simply want to relax can do this at any time in our garden, in tree houses or on original chill-out boat on the beach. There is also a little street art gallery with local and european art works. Those who want to test their boundaries can go on a guided jungle tour with Tribu hill people we are friends

The atmosphere was so welcoming, calm, warm, and beautifully maintained that we changed our trip and spent more time there. The food was soo good, fresh, and always different.
We already planned to make somewhere in the Philippines an elopement wedding ceremony. Slowly, we knew this was exactly the right place. When we shared the idea with Elli and Pascale, they immediately fell in love with the idea and prepared for us a beautiful ceremony that we couldn't imagine. 
The place, Elli and Pascale, and the kind people around will always be in our hearts.

Our recent trip to Soul Camp was nothing short of amazing. I was in a group of 4 and we all have a fantastic time. The warm hospitality and the serene location made it the perfect recharge spot on our Phillipines adventure.

The communal vibe at Soul Camp was a standout feature with the communal space/dining room becoming our favourite spot to unwind after a day full of waterfalls and activities. Additionally, the delicious food prepared by the Soul Camp chefs were consistently impressive, treating us to delightful dinners that made our trip!

For anyone looking for a place to recharge and reconnect with nature, I wholeheartedly suggest Soul Camp :)

Away from tourist spots and caos, best place to chill and disconnect (no internet) and to rediscover the pleasure of slowing down, thinking positive, watching nature and talking with people. Elli and Pasci are beautiful souls who love to take care of their guests, of the village community and of this place. Last but not least, best Filipino food ever! Thank you!

Spent 6 nights there with my boyfriend. It was truly amazing to be able to end our trip in the Philippines there and frankly was a highlight! Elli, Pasci and their team know how to make you feel at home instantly. The food there is truly amazing and so fresh.

We did a jungle tour nearby and it was so special. Nearby beach away from the tourist, it’s the best place to connect with nature.

You can also rent some bikes, body board. They have some games and yoga mats.

If you’re looking for an experience off the beaten path I hugely recommend. 🦋🌞

I was very surprised by the positive rating. We've seen a rundown pothead-housing. Dirty beach (broken glass), but anyway unusable because of the razor-sharp coral fells, which one sees only at low tide. The camp is located in a swampy area full of mosquitoes and completely secluded. In order not to eat expensive in the camp you have to drive 20 miles. Everything, including attractions are 20 miles away. See description!. If you like it all, you'll be in good hands there.

What can I say about this place. It was just the perfect place to unwind without cell phones for 5 nights. Visited kaibigan soul camp with my besties on a girls trip. It was just amazing. Thanks to the hosts for providing us with what we needed exactly. Silke, Eli, Pascal much love to you guys for everything. The dogs fluffy, napa and madiba were a wonderful addition to our holiday.

The food was amazing and every night they will set a bonfire. We will sit on the hammocks listening to the waves, watching the stars and just having conversations with the guests as well as the owners. Everyone is friendly and has something to share.

For those with food preferences, you just need to let them know prior so they can prepare food designed to your diet. Everything was freshly made and organic. The daily fish was freshly caught by the local fishermen.

Will Definately visit again

Note: the sunsets were amazing

Kaibigan Soul Camp is by far the most wonderful place I ever stayed in. There's magic in the surroundings, the food is pure deliciousness and Ellie, Pascale and Silke are absolutely fantastic and inspiring. It was my first technology-free vacation and I never knew I needed it until I arrived at Kaibigan Soul Camp. I am honestly feeling happier and more content than ever after my stay at Kaibigan Soul Camp and for that I am grateful to Ellie, Pascale and Silke for following their hearts in Cabayao and creating this paradise for everyone to enjoy.

Tucked away on the western shores of Palawan Island, only a wee bit over an hours drive from Puerto Princesa Town, one finds the Kaibigan Soul Camp - offering various types of accommodation catering to every guests needs & budget.

The stunning Eco-resort is of a boutique size and the staff and owners are cool folks, welcoming you warmly with genuine hospitality.

I have spend 5 wonderful days at the camp, enjoying the sea, beach walks and plenty of reading time on the hammocks by the beach. It truly is a marvelous place, the perfect spot to relax, unwind, recharge and switch off [literally, as there is no phone or WiFi signal reception at all]. And between all the relaxation and doing nothing, the team cooked up daily feats of very yummy local dishes. Don’t miss your daily kick of young coconut!

If time allows I will return to stay again in a heartbeat, but I guess this hidden gem will soon become very popular.

Thank you Team Kaibigan!

I went to the camp with some trepidation. Booked by my son it came with all mod cons. Well none actually. No wifi. (can you imagine a wifi free holiday). On the good side this will deter any partying 20somethings who really CAN.NOT.BREATHE. without being connected. No hot water (not a problem when its 35 outside) No power hungry a/c (or even an electric fan). Now this proved to be no problem for me, maybe as Ive spent many an airless night in stifling heat in a small boat in the equator (in a previous life), but for some well maybe it is not for you.
Now the food.
The food is heavenly. All home made all for you
