The leaves rustle quietly in the rainforest. The waves quietly approach then draw back, seemingly hesitant to disturb the peaceful shore. This is sanctuary, this is Kamana. Nestled between an old-growth rainforest and the gentle Nabasan Bay, Kamana Sanctuary offers shelter from the hectic noise and frantic pace of the city. Every modern comfort has been thoughtfully provided in each room, to ensure only one thing - that you leave refreshed, recharged.

This is our second time to stay in Kamana. We really like it there because the place is clean, spacious, amenities are nice, and the staff are friendly, courteous and quick to respond to your needs. There were only a few other people staying there, or so it seemed because we rarely bump into other people maybe because the place is big.

This time we got the the deluxe twin loft room and it was very nice! But it was situated at the 3rd floor and there was no elevator so it was a bit hard for our seniors to go up there.

Breakfast buffet was good with many variety. Ala carte was also good but servings are small and very expensive. And service was slow.

The beach is amazing. The water is clear and they offer water activities like kayak and paddle boat. However, the sand is a bit rocky with lots of shells so it would be a good idea to bring aqua shoes.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay in Kamana and we will definitely go back there.

This trip is long overdue as it was postponed due to changing quarantine status that affected travel between NCR and Region 3. Nevertheless, the management made good of its commitments to us and we were never charge a centavo more than the stipulated cost of the vacation package.

Great service is one of the reasons for coming back. The staff will do their best to make your stay as momentous as possible. Foor is delicious. True it is quiet pricey but the cost of bringing supply to the resort from the market makes it reasonable for a person with a clear mind. Thr facilities were upgraded and additional watersports activities were offered to guests.

My verdict? I shall return and enjoy a restful weekend there.

Rooms
It is quite spacious, clean, and there was no foul smell.

Kudos to Housekeeping staffs. Thank you for accomodating all our requests. Keep it up!

I like the ambiance, swimming pool temperature, and how I wish there is bar/resto staff available to take orders at the beach.

Front office
The area desk should be bigger and more staff to accomodate faster check in and out.

FO Staffs should be more approachable and have pleasing smiles.

Restaurant

**More food selections and availability (since the area is far from the city)
** Waiting time is longer as expected for ordering in room services and dine in.

Example: (1 to 2 hours waiting time) Nevertheless, they apologized and compensate us. (thanks to the F&B supervisor for manning up & taking actions)

** Food cost is quite expensive yet the taste, presentation and service was not good but can be improve as well.

Some of the staffs are friendly, approachable and helpful.

We hope, when we come back there will be improvements especially at the restaurant/bar.

We will definetely come back because of the rooms, cleanliness, beach view and swimming pool.

Large rooms nice shower ( should really have a hand shower attachment as well). Two wash basins. Room well lit and a wooden window/door with shutters.Air conditioning excellent easy to control as well as first class TV. Exceptional WiFi. Some rooms are built out into the sea. Food was good we stayed at New Year so the catering was all arranged as part of the evening entertainment . The entire resort was newly built it did not rely on any existing buildings or facilities as part of the old Naval Base. A great view of the sea and amazing sunsets and idyllic sunrises.Staff were exceptionally friendly. Be aware anytime there is a function in the centre of the grounds it will be noisy.

We spent 3 days in the hotel and it was worth it!

The place offered huge spaces so it doesn't look crowded despite being almost fully booked. The pool is clean, rooms are well maintained and the staff are all friendly. Minor comment would be the speed by which they prepare and serve the food. To offset that, they encourage guests to pre-order.

We will definitely be back!

Room is huge and clean.

Buffet breakfast can be busy/crowded sometimes. Food is elevated somehow.

Beach/pool areas are clean.

Helpful stuff. Located in a secluded area in Subic hence you’ll get full privacy.

Good for family or large group.

It’s our first time to go to this place and it’s quite far from commercial establishments so you have to have all of your needs before going there. You can feel the exclusivity of the resort since they have their own road going there in the midst of the jungle forest. Lobby was not that stunning as it looks like a receiving area. Parking is big so it’s not a problem. The room is spacious and big but it’s not what I expected. Furnitures are a little bit outdated and lots of scratches from previous guests. Everything in the room is just basic for a premium resort. We rented two rooms at the ground floor so we have an easy access to the pool and the beach. The pool is great. Water temperature was just right (not cold nor warm) with a great view especially during sunset. The beach is not that nice because you have to pass on a gate and no beach sand area. The staffs are very helpful and polite. Food is a little bit expensive but taste good for us. Buffet breakfast was also satisfying but not something to rave about. If you love nature, this place is for you as there are birds flying around the area during afternoons and monkeys are roaming around at the back of the vicinity. They have several amenities like beach volleyball, playground, basketball and kayaking. My overall experience is just very good but not excellent because I expect too much about this place. Maybe I’ll go back only if they will lower their rates.

Firsr time to visit this resort and I must say I was impressed. Hospitality is top notch and the overall cleanliness of the area including the rooms are amazing. This resort offers water activities and also has an inhouse restaurant which serves great food! Good for families or groups on a vacation. Very relaxing place, truly a sanctuary!

Pros:
+ Great, friendly staff, I commend all of you!
+ Good food, we ate all our meals in their restaurant during our stay, hotel booking includes buffet breakfast
+ Nice view of the Zambales mountain range, clean and relaxing pool and beach area, with plenty of areas to bask in the sun!
+ Clean and very modern-designed resort bldgs and grounds
+ Spacious rooms with complete amenities of a hotel, very comfortable beddings.

Cons:
- Open parking, under the sun, but not much of a problem
- Water shower toggle faulty at times but just a minor issue (Rm312)

Overall a great stay and had a fun time with my family. Planning on coming back soon! One of the best in Subic which does not break the bank! Worth every penny

I just like to applaud the best service that we have during our teambuilding activity in the resort last April 1 & 2, 2023. Special mention to Ms. Sarah Joy Lim who smoothly made our activity a very precious event to celebrate with and a wonderful experience and unforgettable one. She really made sure that all our needs will be meet up and greatly exceeds our expectations. From the very start of our booking until the very last day she made sure that we are comfortably accommodated. Kudos to all the hotel staff who were very helpful to all our needs. God bless you Kamana and will gonna visit there again and again. Thank you for the wonderful experienced and a paradise feel like sanctuary.

Try the Kare Kare or Osso bucco. F A N T A S T I C Food!!

Great staff. Nice rooms although it could do a little face lift. Great beds. Kids love the place. The monkeys can be annoying specially the alpha males!

quiet quiet quiet place.

Avoid the rooms over the water. They might be noisy because of the waves. The rooms at the end of the row are no longer structurally sound.

Place is more for relaxation and rest. You can definitely drink at the bar but the place is quiet and peaceful. Not really for “partying”.
