Takatuka has been designed with love, precision and attention to details. The way this resort and its rooms are designed is really artistic. You'll find so many little details....and every day a new one (old cellphones built into pillars, slide projectors as shower, slippers as holders for a dryer.....to just name a few). The resort is very well organized and...

We really enjoyed our stay at Takatuka on Sugar beach. We stayed in the superstar room which was very quirky and we loved our stay in the room. It looks like a lot of creative thought went into making the room so awesome. I wish I could have a peek at all of the rooms! Sheets and bed linen were...

What a wonderful place to relax and unwind! This resort is truly a work of art with each room uniquely different! We spent 3 nights in the Nautilas room and couldn't have been more pleased! The food at Takatuka was delicious_especially the breakfasts. We would not hesitate to return to this nice little paradise!

Sugar Beach is sooo laid-back and then you suddenly see the quirky Takatuka Beach Resort. I loved how it's unique on its own by incorporating reused materials in its room designs, including the lounge and dining areas for guests. Everything is a splash of whimsy at this resort even if it's a stark contrast to the relaxing vibe of the...

This is the best place to stay if you are looking for a relaxing, yet entertaining vacation. We just had family and friends for the weekened get away, and stayed here for 2 nights. The themed rooms are very creative and well maintained. The boys took 4 rooms: Nautillius, Garage, Empire and 70's... Every room is equally awesome! Service is...

You will be welcomed by the very friendly and accommodating owners Cathy & Kalle Kalitta and ofcourse Lemmy, Takatuka’s wonder dog. From your room to the restaurant, you will be amused by the unique design and ingenuity. Everything you see has its own purpose and hidden purpose too. You have a lot of things to discover on this resort like...

My annual treat to myself and my family is three nights (and four dives!) at Takatuka Lodge Beach and Dive Resort on Sugar Beach near to Sipalay, Negros Occidental (or just "Negros" as it now is). This is simply the best all-round Resort anywhere in the Philippines (and I've stayed in plenty of them over the past 12 years since...

A beautiful and lovely resort with amazing details, clean bungalows and a quiet beach. The restaurant was super delicious with a big choice of tasty food from all around the world. We stayed for there for eleven nights and will come back again for sure :-)

The Takatuka Lodge is just one of the best Beach resort in the Philippines. Each room is unique and with a lot of love for small details. Every year they probably do the best new year party worldwide...... Great food and fair prices. If you just stay for 3 weeks like we did you will not be able to eat...

My wife and I stayed for a week over Christmas and had a fabulous time. Kathy and Kalle have created somewhere which is genuinely unique and quite fantastic. The rooms are interesting and comfortable. The food, from an incredibly diverse menu, is all first class with decent sized portions. And, finally, the staff are lovely. During our time at Takatuka,...
