I fell in love with this place the moment I step right into its door step. It is very peaceful. Very relaxing. The staff Ate Grace and Ate ( oh my sorry I forgot her name ) was very accommodating. There is no TV here but that is not an issue with us. We call this the perfect opportunity to... More

My 3 friends and I stayed in Kalaw for 3 nights during the peak of Holy Week because we had to cover Malasimbo music fest. Our room has enough beds for 4 pax, and it comes with a small kitchen and a lovely view of the sea. I love the huge bathroom setup and the view as well. The room... More

Nestled on a hilltop, amidst a three-hectare lush grounds overlooking Puerto Galera Bay, Kalaw Place is a perfect sanctuary to momentarily escape city life, and simply enjoy the seclusion and quiet beauty of the place. For our weekend get-away, we were given Room No. 1 at the Main House. The two-storey traditional Filipino house mainly made of bamboo, wood, rattan... More

I just got back from Kalaw Place a couple of hours ago and miss it already. It may be true that it isn't for everyone, but I think everyone should give it a try.

You don't have to go far to bask in nature's glory and to experience the lush green surroundings of Puerto Galera. Kalaw Place is a haven for reflection and inspiration. The hilltop view of this place is a nature lover's delight. One of the highlights of this Inn is a private lagoon with own pier and bar where you could opt for paddle boat... More

I was thinking of a good title for this review so I brainstormed myself..."What does the place remind you?". Good old days it is! We came to the place by boat and went uphill from the cute pier that Kalaw has. The place is quiet and peaceful. A friendly staff guided us to our room and explained some rules. We... More
