Siargao in Surigao del Norte has been getting a lot of attention in the past few years, especially with the newly-launched direct flights offered by local airlines and a whole movie that's set in the teardrop-shaped island. It's famous for its barreling waves that pro surfers from all over the world can't get enough of, white-sand beaches and sandbars, amazing rock formations, and pristine islets.

Convinced yet? There are plenty of accommodations available for every type of traveler—whether you're an adventurous solo flyer or a big group excited for the experience of a lifetime.

For the Bold and Daring Solo Traveler

Malayah Siargao

Purok 3, Poblacion, General Luna
Contact: 0956-1228115
Rates start at P450/bed/night

Malayah Siargao, which just opened in October 2017, is about five minutes away from Cloud 9 by motorycle, but still close to the main road if you're out for an in-land adventure. Dormitories are air-conditioned, so no need to worry about the heat if you're there at the peak of summer. You can also get a tattoo by the in-house artist and have something to remember your trip by.

Kubo Siargao Homestay

Catangnan, General Luna
Contact: 0917-7732836
Rate is at P1,300/room/night

Kubo Siargao Homestay is unlike any other hostel or resort in General Luna. Couples get to book the whole property, all 333 square meters of it, for only P1,300 per night. The space includes a functional kitchen (with a waffle maker and coffee maker) where you can prepare your own meals, a kubo (with a double bed and mosquito net), and a detached room just in case you're with two more people. There's a minimum two-night stay; but with a place like this, you wouldn't want to leave.

Kalinaw Resort Siargao

Catangnan, General Luna
Contact: 0930-2515677
Rates start at P12,900/room/night

Kalinaw means "peaceful" in the Visayan language and it couldn't be more apt for this remote luxury resort tucked behind a number of palm trees. There are four deluxe villas with a view of a lagoon, a king-size bed, and a large lounge balcony. For a more luxurious treat, there's the suite villa that comes with its own infinity pool and hot tub.

Aside from the room that can fit up to five people, you also have the option to book the community youth villa at P800/bed. It fits up to 12 people, but limits the age group to the 18-to-45 bracket. (It did say youth villa.) After you're done exploring the island, you might also want to sign up for volunteer tours and experience Siargao from a different perspective. There are tree planting activities, reading classes, and waste clean-up drives you can be part of while you're there.

Kawili Beach Resort

Tourism Road, Barangay 5, General Luna
Contact: 0947-475-9922
Rates start at P2,800 for four pax

Kawili is a Visayan word that loosely translates to a nostalgic feeling of affection. And what better way to bond with your family than with a carefully picked accommodation where there's a bit of something for everyone. You can try riding the barreling waves in Cloud 9, or go kayaking in the calmer lagoon in the area. Rooms have WiFi connection and a sound system where you can plug in your laptops or phones. No millennial will ever feel bored.


Kermit Siargao

Contact: 0917-655-0548
Rates start at P2,750/night for four pax

Kermit's K-house is ideal for families as it has two bedrooms and a spacious common room. But what this place is really known for is the world-famous brick-oven pizza, which Condé Nast Traveler once described as "what might be the best pizza and fresh made pastas in the country."
