My review is long overdue. I loved Alumbung resort and have shared my experience with many friends. I stayed in a cottage with 2 other friends for 3 days after some stressful work days in Manila.

We stayed at Lumbung Cottage for 3 nights. I booked last minute directly through their web page and I had a quick answer telling me they were expecting us that afternoon. Nice, easy and smooth. It's located close but further enough from Alona Beach so you can scape from the (in my opinion) too noisy atmosphere. Even if you're diving...

A corner of paradise awaits you at Alumbung. Behind the tall wooden gates lies a lush garden of gentle swaying palms and manicured grass peppered with hints of colour from Balinese parasols and tropical flowers. It is a world away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and the perfect place to relax and unwind, whether that is on...

Sylvia, Roberto and all at Alumbung made sure our 6 nights on Panglao Islands were as magical as we'd hoped! The studio was comfortable, well equipped and provided the perfect base from which to journey around the beautiful Bohol and enjoy the beaches on Panglao! It's a short and incredibly cheap ride to Alona or a 20 minute walk. We...

Our stay in Alumbung is the most unforgettable holiday I spent with my Fiancè. We got a chance to stay in 2 different cottages (Alumbung and Balinese) for our 5 days package deal. The cottages are very beautiful and very cozy that we love so much. We also find it very romantic for couples who would want to stay there...

The house was very cosy and charming - everything was nicely made up. The owner of the resort is a charming lady who helped me to book a taxi to the airport, rent a scooter and explained how to get around the island to see what I wanted. The breakfast was really nice too!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Alumbungs is a small tropical garden approximately 25 minutes away from Tagbilaran and three minutes ride from the renowned Alona Beach. The special shape of the villa and cottage roofs is derived from the typical Balinese Lumbung structure where the upper part of each hut served as a rice barn and the bottom part as a meeting place for the family. This is the perfect place for family vacations, honeymooners or for people that just want to relax. ... more   less
