We combined a stay at the inn with a 6 days Kayak trip. Great food & new friends, see you next year!

It's a hidden, comfortable, clean and decent place to spend your vacation. Very affordable and the staff are always ready to attend to your needs.

It's a home away from home. Just make sure you call in ahead for food preparation as they need to do marketing from the nearest wet and dry market.

The kayaks gave us access to beautiful beaches that made our stay a very memorable one. Looking forward to coming back with the whole family.

We have stayed at the CK - Inn 2 times and we plan to go back again. It is a beautiful place with so much to see. It is a great place for families as well as a group of adventure seeking friends. As a foreigner I really appreciated the amenities that the CK - Inn offers, such as hot water showers, clean/cold water to drink, air conditioned rooms, toilet paper, Clean towels and bedding, refrigerator, dishes/silverware, toaster oven, etc.

The quality of items that the CK-Inn rents (kayaks, tents, snorkeling gear, etc.) is all top notch. The managers are very hospitable and helpful.

The only drawback is that the beach that the CK-Inn is located on is not fantastic - but the manager will take you to a some great beaches just about 5 minutes away from where the CK-Inn is located. Other places that are worth exploring are a 5 minute boat ride and then a tricycle or jeepney ride to the other side (45 minutes). The managers will arrange all of your transportation for you and will even provide a guide.

Caramoan is the place that Survivor has been filmed several times by many countries - it is beautiful and the CK-Inn will allow you to enjoy your time there to the fullest!

I first found out about CK - Inn more than a year ago when I was looking for accommodations for a group of friends for our yearly summer trip. I contacted the owner, Arild Sandberg, and with his easy-going and professional manner, we became friends right away! Arild believes in the preservation of the beauty of the caramoan islands and does not support over-commercialisation of the area. From our conversations, I gather that he wants people to enjoy the natural wonders of the place and make it available for future generations.

Granted, the CK-Inn does not offer 5-star amenities. It is a simple place with all the basics: Clean, Ample ventilation and well-lit, A/C on some rooms, hot shower, restaurant with good hearty, filipino food, and friendly staff. But the best thing about the CK-Inn is its awesome deals. Offering Island Tours complete with Boat, Food, Accommodation, Snorkeling Gear, Kayaks, and even Camping Gear, it's very difficult to beat! And these are not cheap units that you see with other operators. They have new and branded masks and fins, life-jackets, as well as Coleman tents and hydration packs and cook sets. And they even have first aid kits as well.

Their boats will take you to the best spots in the Caramoan Peninsula. Perfect for families and groups of travelers, CK-Inn's tours are really hassle-free, and Rey Teoxon ( Manager ) is also very accommodating.
