UNWND in Dumaguete is in the coastal city of Negros Island. It is conveniently located just five minutes from the city’s airport. Our boutique hotel, the colorful property offers an exciting range of accommodations to suit every type of traveler. There are luxury huts for the wanderer seeking the finer things from nomadic travel. Balay Balay is an accommodation at UNWND Dumaguete that recreates the idea of playing house. In true UNWND form, the property also offers its signature shared rooms and the main hotel stays. These living spaces are, of course, dressed in local art by visual artist Daniel Vincent Fabros. Other signature features of the property include a swimming pool, WYP dining, and a bar.

Hotel's Favorite

-Staff are kind and very accommodating!
-Room interior is cute and AC is cold. -The food is great and the restaurant is a nice place to hang out too with games you can play.
-We enjoyed the pool and workout area.
-The sauna and spa treatment is very relaxing.
-We got to hang out by the beach since there are swings and cabanas.

The place would even be more perfect if the beach is swimmable (but we understand why because there are mangrove trees). Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to friends!

We booked last minute (4 hours before check in time) and they were able to accommodate us, which is excellent because we really wanted to go out and unwind while working at the same time. We took the luxury hut and was enamored of its interiors. Great for couples as it offers privacy. Included in the check in rate is the use of their sauna as well as a spa massage, definitely worth every penny. Food is excellent, too. Lived up to its name -- definitely a great place to UNWND.

I stayed there for a night and all I can say is they’ve exceeded my expectations. The ambiance levels with the known expensive hotel in Dumaguete, their staff are super friendly and accommodating, the service is superb, the bartender is welcoming and, as a picky eater, their food are amazing (their chicken tocino breakfast paired with the perfect garlic rice is to die for!).

The luxury king hut is great. Spacious, expensive feels and with complete amenities. You are given a welcome drink too. Also, I have to note, I like how their complimentary water comes in a glass bottle.

And… they have an excellent wifi connection anywhere the place.

It was a great experience! Will definitely recommend to anyone wanting to visit and stay in Dumaguete.

My family and I would definitely stay at UNWND again if we are in Dumaguete. The place was awesome! Our room was very clean and my family enjoyed the pool. What made the place stand out for us was the staff. Everybody was very accommodating and went out of their way to make sure that our stay was comfortable. Even the guards at the gate would make small talks with us to ensure that we are enjoying our stay. The guys at the pool bar are top notch! Please make sure that you commend them for their hard work.

This is our second time, overnight stay on A Saturday night. We stayed in the same Hut- the nearest to the pool area. We checked in around 6pm- our accommodation was ready. However unlike before there was no one to help us with our things getting to the lobby. We are a party of 3 adults, one ten-year old and a baby. There is usually somebody in the frontdoor. Upon checking in we were not given the usual speech about the room, amenities, resto, number to call, breakfast etc. I am assuming that it should be SOP 😅. The wifi connection in the HuT is 😕. There was also a party going on and the noise can reach us in the Hut. Maybe we should have requested a Hut that is farther away. We were told that the party will end by 10pm but sad to say it went beyond that. I suppose the management can make certain adjustments in the sound/speakers. The bed, linen, pillows allowed us to have good sleep but only
After the party ended. We loved the breakfast choices. Before checking out, we requested assistance with our baggage and they were prompt to send us persons. If you have a child in the autism spectrum/with noise aversion, I suggest you request for a room that is far from the pool area. If you want peace and quiet or a tranquil stay better make sure there is no function/party.

From check-in to check-out, the entire experience was exceptional. 🙌👌

The room was meticulously designed, incorporating all the requested details and exuding a cool and artistic ambiance.

Food and atmosphere perfectly matched the name "UNWIND," providing a relaxing retreat.

And, the highlight was the poolside bar, a brilliant idea for enjoying time with friends, complete with entertaining games. 👾🍻

Hotel staff was incredibly accommodating, paying attention to every detail. 💯

Our stay was not just memorable but perfect. Highly recommended, and we definitely plan to return. ⭐️🤩

Will always recommend this to friends and family! Restaurant and bar are open from 7am to 10pm and they have acoustic night every friday and saturday. They also have pool, outdoor gym, sauna, and spa. Rooms are very budget friendly and would really recommend the bunk rooms or the huts.

We stayed only overnight at this unique beautiful botique hotel as we have to fly the following day to Manila . We were immediately greeted by a very special and charming lady by the name of February, very sweet and charming ! Welcome drink was really timely after 1 hour ride from Zambuanquita where we had our hotel for the Apo island diving the night before. What makes this hotel special is how friendly and accommodating the staff were, not to mention the Philippine hut style “igloo” & beautiful interior design.The role model for how to “treat” a guest is the GM & Operations Manager, Marlon Navarro. I am a Filipino expat who had lived over 40 years in Europe and just on a diving & golf safari with my buddy but I have never seen an “over the top” hospitality from a hotel manager. Marlon answered all our enquiries including where to have a nice dinner, bar to hang out, sightseeing and spa. For spa, don’t miss the hotel spa especially with Jess - one of my best massages in the Philippines. Also, as Marlon noticed that I have an Austrian guest who is a little bit inquisitive about the area, brought us even by himself to the Boulevard as my friend is quite tall for a “tuktuk” (our local Tricicle). I wish UNWND all the success in the world and without a doubt, with Marlon under it’s helm, it will be the top hotel in Dumaguete in due time. Thank you so much for this “unusual “ experience! Best regards, Tristan David & Gerhard Schaller

UNWND BOUTIQUE HOTEL has the best management in Dumaguete that my wife and I ever experienced. All staffs are well-trained, professional and polite. Everyone are so attentive and willing to make sure all the guests will have a memorable experience. Services and foods were just so great with its prices. To summarize, they don’t hesitate to go above and beyond.

We were so glad and blessed to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary here. Unique, peaceful, well - maintained place inside and outside.

Ps. Thank you so much to all the staffs who put extra effort in order for us to have a more special wedding anniversary celebration. We deeply appreciate it. God bless us all!

This small hotel has everything I want! The rooms are spotless, the mattresses are really comfy, the food is delicious, and the staff is exceptional. Miss Marla, in particular, is everywhere, ensuring that everyone is comfortable, has what they need, and is content. I thoroughly enjoyed my two-night stay at UNWND and intend to return soon. It comes highly recommended.
