This magic, laid back resort does not lack in anything, provided you like secludedness, excellent food and tranquility. Its hidden on a private beach that is daily cleaned.
The owners, Jamie and Nikki, and their charming staff are a fantastic team fulfilling all wishes possible. Food is a major point of attraction here, as it is carefully and freshly prepared. (If full up, plan in some time for the preparation. It is defenitly worth waiting than!)
Did I mention the outstanding house reef and the well equipped dive center? The material is excellent and the instructors very professional. Don't miss out a dive here!
During the lockdown due to Corona Virus we were the last guests in the resort. The friendly service was delivered till our departure. Everyone was very, very supportive.
As you can see on the pictures the Napa huts are simple but have an amazing layout. Far more important: they are sparkling clean and the mattresses (plus topper) are veeeeery comfortable.
During out stay Jamie and Nikki started to install new mosquito nets in all rooms. They constructed rectangled frames over the bed so the net doe snot disturb at night.
Thanks to the size of the resort things are very individual and creative.
It is a very special place, a gem in hospitality that should not be missed out!!!

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!
