Featuring fine Asian cuisine, stunning natural settings and vintage rooms, our villa is designed for foodies, naturalists, and all those prefer the road less traveled.
Traveling in the Philippines can be a great experience, but from top to bottom, the country lags well behind her Asian neighbors for culinary options and quality. This is not an issue for guests at our villa , as it sits just meters from highly acclaimed restaurant, Guerrera-- which , for asian food lovers, has become a destination in its own right. The emphasis for Le cordon bleu-trained chef ( Bangkok) and owner, Carmel Therese Almadrones is on creativity and exploration. Her “Fine Asian Street Food” eatery has become a destination for foodies and chefs alike and her ever-changing seasonal menu includes both signature creations and more traditional dishes from across Asia. The cuisines of Thailand, Vietnam, India, Indonesia and Malaysia are featured and the selections are balanced for both vegetarians and carnivores.
Stunning natural settings
Set in a lush and serene rice paddy steps from a secluded black sand beach, our villa offers the island’s best views of both White Island and volcanic mount Hibok-Hibok. Stroll gardens filled with herbs and vegetables or watch water buffalo, horses, goats, ducks and many other farm animals who live in the paddy areas.
We take great pride in the distinctive character of our accommodations which are neither modern, native or commercial. Meant to evoke an earlier, slower time, the villa includes Spanish tiles, Vietnamese lanterns, colonial shutters, bamboo ceilings and hand-tailored native hardwood. Unique details abound and virtually everything was built on premises, by hand.
In addition, the villa has a generous wrap around deck and because life is short, an over-sized outdoor bathtub, for two, directly facing the rice paddies.
Modern amenities include WiFi, brand new air-conditioning, hot water heaters for both shower and tub and top quality memory foam beds. Your TV has been replaced by a full bookshelf for your refreshment.
Pampering is for the pampered and instead, a stay at Guerrera provides opportunities to savor life’s rare moments.
