“No other place to stay while in busuanga,Coron”
Reviewed 14 February 2018 for a stay in February 2018

The place is the best , the people are amazing and the food is incredible. If you want to experience a friendly ,safe and enjoyable stay no other resort comes in mind but Ekhaya. No need to say anything more you would know what I am talking about after you experience it your self. Have a great time guys. Thank you Melanie and Arnold for a wonderful time. Can’t wait to see you again.

“Above and beyond convenient Coron experience”
Reviewed 20 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Special thank you to the owners Mel and Arnold for their warm hospitality during our 8 person stay at Ekhaya. The property is truly beatiful and has an amazing view of the sunset and sunrise daily. Mel and the staff's cooking was remarkable and if you're staying here don't waste your time eating anywhere else - have them pack to-go meals for you as well if you're heading out for the day. You're not going to get a clean/safer and more delicious option anywhere else. The infinity pool is really relaxing both in the morning and at night after a day of site seeing. They can help arrange all day activities for pick-up right at Ekhaya which made things really convenient. The rooms themselves have comfortable beds and all the greatest amenities including AC. They even have a great wine selection! Do yourself a favor and if you're visiting Coron, make it an effort to stay here for an above and beyond experience.

“Ekhaya - An experience like no other”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

My girlfriend and I (young couple) stayed at Ekhaya for 3 nights in late June 2017. Suffice to say, Ekhaya exceeded our expectations; our only regret being the short length of the stay.

Ekhaya is a small outfit run by a lovely couple (Mel and Arnold), who are assisted by a capable team, most notable of which are Jho and Wilfred. The Ekhaya team are extremely helpful and hospitable, with all our needs and wants attended to promptly. In fact, our trip was planned on a whim - I only contacted Ekhaya a mere week before our intended stay. Nevertheless, Ekhaya assisted with all the arrangements (from the tours to the transport arrangements), ensuring that we had a peace of mind the entire trip.

Our room at Ekhaya provided us an unforgettable view of the bay area; every night was a delight with a sky full of stars. The property has many little spots to sit back and unwind with a book in hand - my favourite spot was the hammocks by the sea where many hours were spent reading and taking everything in.

Do make it a point to get your food at Ekhaya too. Although pricier than what one would have paid in Coron town, the food was phenomenal (I would strongly recommend the South African curry, the lamb samosas, the Spanish Frittata, and the apple crumble).

In sum, I would recommend Ekhaya to anyone considering a bespoke travel experience in Coron / Busuanga. I certainly look forward to my next trip to Ekhaya!

“Paradise in Busuanga Island”
Reviewed 27 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

From the amazing view that wakes us every morning to a spectacular sunset that we looked forward to every afternoon. Everything was just nice plus the hospitality we recieved from Arnold, Mel and team Ekhaya made this a perfect holiday. Ekhaya arranged everything from boat, van, equipment and meal leaving nothing for us to worry about in touring coron and nearby islands.Highly recommended!

“A breath of fresh air!”
Reviewed 12 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had the BEST stay here in April this year. We had just spent 5 days on a boat sailing from El Nido up to Coron and we wanted 5 days to relax and recover but still have some diving and snorkling.

The rooms were big and clean (we got a free update to the ground floor which was a two bedroom place with a kitchen, living room, alfresco and court yard!) and the beds were SO comfy, something you don;t tend to get in Asia. Mel's cooking is wonderful and nothing is too much trouble for Arnold or Mel. We basically had the place to ourselves, with only max 5 or 6 rooms even if its full you don't really notice. As a family run place it was just so nice and relaxing to have such a personalized experience and was exactly what we needed after our 5 days of camping. We felt very spoilt and didn't want to leave!

“Wonderful and great place to relax”
Reviewed 2 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Ekhaya. The owners welcomed us warmly. The restaurant offers very good and healthy cuisine. We had plenty of possibilities to explore the island (boat trip and snorkelling or diving, motor bike, tours on the island, etc.). The rooms include a terrace and offer high standard and a marvellous view, the pool is wonderful. Staff is very friendly and helpful. All in all the best place to relax and enjoy this beautiful environment. We'll come again!

“Definitely one of our best holidays ever!”
Reviewed 26 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Ehhaya's location is just stunning, with amazing views from their beautiful balconies. Arnie and Mel (the owners) and their wonderful staff just made the place feel like a home away from home and couldn't do enough to make our stay as perfect as possible. As they say, it's not a hotel with 24 hour room service, it's much more friendly and personal than that!!! we were lucky to spend 8 nights there, so didn't feel that we had to book activities every day and could just spend a day by the pool, or down by the water in a hammock!! But any trips we felt like taking were booked by the staff and recommendations from Arnie and Mel were great -- you MUST go to Black Island, the snorkeling was like something out of Nat Geo. All in all an incredibly relaxing, wonderful holiday!!
