If you’re looking for a place to relax and re-charge in a rustic, yet comfortable, and environmentally conscious setting then KooKoo’s Nest is your secret spot. This was a little slice of paradise that exceeded our expectations. Yes, there are things one has to be aware of: the steps getting to/ from the resort; beds are double size; no AC in the bamboo cottages and it is isolated but if these things don’t bother you, or you’re seeking this kind of experience, then KooKoo’s Next is a perfect getaway.
Despite their simplicity the cottages are very clean and well made; the bed was more comfortable then expected, the view and setting outstanding. It’s hard to top being lulled to sleep by the sound of the ocean and waking-up to birdsong and an amazing view.
The food and drinks (for a hotel of this size and location) were great; the snorkeling and diving on their house reef was spectacular. Jamie and Nikki were wonderful hosts and great dive instructors. This is a fantastic spot to do a Discover Scuba dive and their pricing was very reasonable.
Their location in Siaton (near Tambobo Bay) was arguably the best on the island with calm, clear water and incredible sunsets. I cannot say enough about this place and will definitely be back. This is a special spot that warrants a visit if you’re in the region. Add a trip to Apo Island during your stay and you’ve got the perfect getaway.
Thank you to Jamie, Nikki and everyone at KooKoo’s Nest for creating such a wonderful spot and memorable experience.
