My Mom and I stayed here in a bungalow queen room for 3 days. The AC room provides the basic necessities including basic toiletries. Decently sized for 2 pax. Very satisfied with the room. Regarding the meals, apart form breakfast you will not find anything to eat in the hotel for the rest of the meals. No room service of any sort except coffee or tea on charge during the day if you request for it. This provision was a surprise but I guess we understood due to the location we were at. The resort itself is a quaint, comfortable, well maintained and beautiful property. At the time we were there, I think we were the only guests. Customer service is top class with such comfort. While the Filipino people generally can be quite friendly, Ms Joy was supportive and flexible all throughout our stay. Also very kind and service friendly. I would stay here again, except for the fact that there is no place to eat in the hotel or right outside. You need to walk at least 5 mins or more to get to a restaurant. Never tried it so not sure about the kinds. Staying with my mom and grandma visiting and since we were not on an adventure holiday, would like easy eat outs available.

Dear AmorKotum, Thank you for having stayed with us and for taking the time to write a detailed review. Yes, we take special pride in our customer service; we want to make every guest feel at home. You mentioned other meals than breakfast. We are foremost a bed and breakfast; we do not have a restaurant. However, we do cook dinner for our guests, if they give prior notice to our staff. Indeed, this is a bigger concern for us that we intend to improve in the future. Right now, we are building an open terrace with an integrated kitchen that will allow easier meal service to our guests. On the other hand, there are quite a few restaurants in town that we recommend to our guests, but as you say they are at least 5 minutes’ walk or drive away. New is the construction of a Max’s Restaurant very close to the resort, just at the intersection with the highway (300m away). In any case, thank you for your review and I hope we will be able to see you again here in the near future! We will cook for you. The Strutz Art Garden Resort Team.

We went all the way in there and the hotel help were not receptive to receiving us. It was hard enough to go up the narrow road towards their hotel and to be treated with suspicion will not earn you customers in the future. Hotel management should train their staff to recognize a potential customer.

Hello Rio Rojas, Our staff has treated you with utmost professional courtesy and conveyed to you the resort policy not to show unregistered and unknown guests through our rooms. As this might be difficult to understand for some, especially after a long tiring road trip, I believe that most hotels have this policy, and for security reasons alone. Our rooms and the premises are well documented with up to date pictures on our homepage. We take pride when our guests feel like being at home or with family and often, we hear comments like “wow, this is even more beautiful than the pictures suggest on your homepage”. This is also somehow reflected in the very positive overall rating that we received. For records sake, the 300m of street going up from the intersection of Abra-Ilocos Norte Road has a width of 6m. We hope that there will be another chance in the future where we would be able to greet you and your family as our guests. The Management of the Strutz Art Garden Resort

This is a lovely small resort based within a walled garden about 10 minutes from the centre of Bangued. It really is beautiful and well kept once you get inside and are happy to stay there. As another reviewer mentioned this is a difficult place to find, not on a main road at all. Our local relatives could not find it, and neither could anyone we asked on the street nearby help us. There's no signage at all as far as we could see. It took two calls to the resort itself before we found it! Anyway, perhaps this is an advantage if you want to get away from it all. There's nothing in the way of local restaurants (you'll need a 10 minute tricycle ride), and if you want to eat in the resort itself then it must to be by prior arrangement. Likewise, you have to choose your breakfast the night before including saying what time you want it served. The main gate is closed and locked between 9pm and 6am unless you make special arrangements to come and go outside these times. All in all it's a bit like staying with relatives and having to stick to their rules - of which there are three laminated printed sheets to be found in your room. All of this may sound like a moan, but this is all made up for by the incredibly kind and caring staff who run the place and the overall quality of the accommodation. You feel totally safe, surrounded with high ending fittings; it's dead quiet, clean and comfortable. But it's certainly not for everyone and you need to know how different it is to your typical hotel where there's a lot more flexibility.

Dear Graham, Thank you for having stayed with us and for writing a very nice and also critical review. As a bed and breakfast, we feel that we have succeeded our mission, if our guests feel at home or feel as if they stay with family. The resort is located 300m off the main road which helps to provide the peace and tranquility from the noises of traffic. Walls and the closed gate policy provide the security and privacy that most of our guests appreciate. On the flip side of the coin, we do not provide the buzz of some larger hotels. I waited to reply to your review until today for a reason. Yes, we got it done this week, we put signage at the intersection of the main road, the Ilocos Norte – Abra Road, that leads to our resort and a second signage at the only other intersection 50 m further up toward the resort. It took some time, as sign boards needed to be printed and permits needed to be secured from the local authorities. I hope it helps our guests to find us more easily. On your comment we also have removed the sheets of rules in the rooms and replaced them with a more common information folder usually found in hotels. The new folder explains our resort, how it works, and also contains information about local restaurants. There are several restaurants in town, local eateries, cafés including our own Strutz Art Café and the usual fast food chain restaurants, take out and pizza places. Moreover, we will also be working on improving our own food offerings in the resort. I hope we will be able to see you again here in the next future! The Strutz Art Garden Resort Team

The place is refresshing with lots of greenery and blooms. The room is large so is the bed. There is no screen door so mosquitoes are likewise invited to come in when you open the door. The air conditioning unit horsepower is not compatible with the size of the room. Pillows are too soft for our needs. There is no electric water thermos for coffe or tea. No complimentary coffee, tea nor drinking water. The dining area is hot. No signage from the main road to the resort.

Hello Ms. Perpetua, Thank you for having been our guest and for writing a review…and for making our last name into a verb! Please allow me to reply to your other comments in your review. Screen doors: Our guests mostly use air conditioning and for this very reason keep the doors closed. All windows are equipped with mosquito screens. The air conditioning unit in each room is a split inverter type, less than 2 years old, well functioning and the size has been selected to fit the size of the room. The remote control has a lot of buttons and functions that can be confusing and where we might have to explain better to our guests. Now, it is the hottest time in the year with maximum outside temperatures between 32 and 34 C. We followed up your remark and made a test at 2pm when it is really hot: the room can be cooled down to 21 C. We do have harder pillows for guests who prefer firmer ones. We do provide each guest with bottled water. We offer freshly brewed coffee or tea as well as other drinks in the resort at little cost. The dining area is an open nipa hut equipped with electric ceiling fans. We are currently working on putting up signage from the main road to the resort. We would love to welcome you back in the future. The Strutz Art Garden Resort Team.

It is more than merely accommodation …. Yes the property is literally a resort, and the people there are wonderful too. The hosts Thomas and Aurora are so friendly I felt I was being treated as a visiting family member. More about the property… the grounds are fun to explore and you visit the pool, the fish pond, the chickens, Thomas jungle, or stroll in the gardens. Thomas would give my Son fish food who loved to feed the fish every day. The grounds are very secure with large walls all around. The rooms are air conditioned and high quality and everything is maintained and functional. I enjoyed Thomas tour of the mechanics including pool and pumps house, water storage, solar/grid power supply with a powerful back-up generator that actually came in handy through a black-out while I stayed, but it didn’t affect us. A Dr. Of Physics Thomas is and this is his paradise. The staff are great and a lovely breakfast was served each day, and I enjoyed drinking wine with the hosts some evenings. I have gained a great deal of inspiration with new ideas for my own property. Looking forward to seeing you again!

Hello SmithersinAU, Wow, thank you for such a positive review! We truly enjoyed having you not only as a guest, but also getting to know you as a new friend. It warmed our hearts having seen your young son playing and having a lot of fun. And this is one advantage of having a small resort with few rooms. It is easy to get to know our guests, often from far places around the world and we really enjoy it. We love to build and improve the gardens with new plants and flowers all the time. And we worked hard to install the technology to make our resort work well. Power outages will affect us little. But most of all, it makes us happy, if we can provide this genuinely welcoming atmosphere where our guests feel being treated as family. We would love to see you again here or at your own place! The Strutz Art Garden Resort Team.

The best in Bangued we liked it so much we stayed here twice it’s quiet beautiful and the staff/owners can’t do enough for you. The pool is so clean you think it’s spring water. we stayed in there bungalow which is amazing everything works (rare in Luzon) it’s only 10 minutes to Bangued centre on a trike. The gardens largely dominate the space so you feel like you have a garden of Eden what you see in pics is what you get I would stay again every time I go through the area. Look no further book it before it’s gone!!! Overall Ace place best whisper a/c Best 100chanel tv Cleanest place I’ve stayed in the whole of Luzon Dan Beha

As a Clinician trained in Behavioral Medicine and in American Jurisprudence, I work as a Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist, and a Forensic Case Manager for clients who have psychiatric and legal issues. As such, when I go on vacation similar to the one I took recently with my family in the Philippines, I like to have excellent services and accommodations wherever I happened to be staying at. Strutz Art Garden Resort, provided these and more when we stayed there 3weeks ago. Specifically, the Resort provided exceptional comfort, amenities, and freedom of choices. The environment including the staff were perfect. The Resort is in excellent location for vacationers who truly cherish and enjoy peace and tranquility. The staff are professional as the rules, expectations and boundaries are clear, yet with personal touch and family-like treatment and respect common to the Filipino culture. Finally, but not last, Strutz Art Garden Resort appears to be the only hotel-related establishment in the Province of Abra that accept Credit Card payments consistent with the 21st century lifestyle. I can't say the same for the same accommodation my family and I had with the other -hotels we stayed at. In fact, one of those hotels we stayed at, don't even meet the basic necessity for human habitation.

I am a landscape photographer and visited Bangued to shoot Kaparkan Falls. We looked at many options online and decided on the Strutz Art Garden Resort. We are very happy with our choice! The Team in Strutz Garden were extremely friendly and helpful prior to our arrival, and from the moment we arrived through to our departure. My landscape photography work depends in part upon weather. Up front I asked Mr. Strutz if the weather was bad, if I could move my reservation window to a different week. He was extremely accommodating and in fact a Super Typhoon blasted through Abra the day before we were to arrive. I moved my reservation out by one week. Upon arrival we were immediately greeting by the facility Manager Lilia. My 1st impression was that the facility & grounds were extremely well maintained. The registration was quick and our room was beautiful. I would go so far as to say our room was in "like new" condition. Lilia & James had our breakfast ready on time each day, even accommodating our early shoot schedule. The swimming pool was impeccably clean and a lovely sight while taking our breakfast poolside. By the way, I highly recommend the Vigan Longaniza! Each day our room attendant Matet was there with fresh towels and a smile as she refreshed our room. At night Lilia was there to greet us, like coming home to Family. She was always ready with recommendations for my wife to visit during the day while I was shooting & more recommendations for places to go for dinner. Frankly, we were sad when departure morning rolled around, we would like to have stayed another day or two, but we needed to proceed with our vacation schedule. Thank a million to Mr. Strutz, Lilia, James and Matet for an AbraMazing experience!

It is already a couple of months ago. But this is the place to stay in Bangued. We were searching for a place to stay a couple of days because we had to visit our family in Mudeng(across the bridge). We found it on google after several tries with the 2 others hotel(they called afterwards that they were fully booked by the government). By accident one of the employees was a relative of our uncle. Aurora(owner of the property) gives you a warm welcome and will take care of you in an excellent way. Rooms are very good and comfy as known in the ‘western part of the world’. Swimming pool and garden are very clean and relaxing I would definitely come back here when i will stay in Abra.
