Just to begin ... Yorkshire tea for breakfast. This is enough to give the Nest 5 stars alone.

Charming hosts, a really excellent kitchen (I highly recommend the Friday dinner), superb snorkelling, secluded and a gorgeous, rustic cottage. Falling asleep to the sound of waves lapping a few metres from your bed is a truly memorable experience!.

Note: there are 100 steps down to the accommodation though there are sherpas to carry your luggage

This accommodation is exactly, how you imagine in your dreams. If south Negros is the crown of Philippnes, Kookoo's Nest is the diamond on the crown.
Located in a private bay, just six bungalows with an amazing view and conditions. Owners and the staff are extreme kind and helpful, food is amazing, chill out is on maximum level. What else do you need?
Oh yes, they have a diveshop as well. So if you'd like too see the underwater world in the bay, or go to the beautiful Apo Island, owners can give a perfect guiding for you.
This is your place if you travel to this area!

We enjoyed 5 days of eating, reading, swimming and snorkeling with the Kookoo’s nest. Same quality and service as we experienced 9 years ago! We actually slept in the same bamboo hut too! Staff were very friendly. So many fish and coral to see.

It was a great choice picking Kookoo's Nest out of the many options in Negros Oriental. It was exactly as how it was described - an escape from the city in simple yet tastefully designed eco-friendly cottages. The food was healthy and delicious, and Jamie and Nikki were hospitable and welcoming hosts. We also did a dive at Apo Island and Jamie was a patient and attentive dive master. Facilities are great (no aircon though so you'll have to be comfortable with that - along with the wildlife :D), the staff were very efficient and friendly, their house reef was teeming with marine life, and overall was great value for money! Bonus was a small cliff you could easily climb up to (~10mins) get a spectacular view of the area. Thank you, Jamie and Nikki!

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.
