We stayed at Balai Sa Baibai for 5 nights. In our own private villa with our own private pool. It was lovely! Especially because there is only a few villas meaning not too many guests! The beach bar is great and plays perfect music! It is really difficult to signal something out as everything was exceptional!! The location, views, bar,...

Balai sa Baibai is proof that you don't need to go out of the country to experience paradise. The minute you walk in, you won't want to leave!

5 stars. Balai sa Baibai was the highlight of our stay in Camiguin. The friendly staff, impressive gardens, attention to detail and yummy breakfasts made our stay memorable and we will be back ! Check out their community workshop where the owners support the local women with income generation schemes - something more businesses should do !

We are currently staying in this wonderful resort. We transferred to this paradise resort from another nearby resort - and there is no comparison. The only reason we were not able to stay here during our entire vacation is because it got booked (unfortunately for us because we waited too long.) The setting is absolutely beautiful - once you enter...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Balai sa Baibai is a Bisayan phrase that literally means "house by the beach." It also plays on the Thai term "sabai-sabai" which means to relax and chill out. Put together Balai sa Baibai means your relaxing home by the sea, a place to rest, and recover from your busy lives. And this is exactly what we the owners, Cocoy and Elden, want you to do - sit back, relax and enjoy Camiguin. ... more   less
