“Idyllic island experience!”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

If you like the simplicity of an island vacation, this is it! There is no electricity but they installed solar panels which can power some lights and a fan. I have been coming here in the last 15 years and the family who owns it has kept it the same. Food is awesome - fishermen deliver freshly-catch seafood and everything is cooked in wood & charcoal fire. They bake their own bread too! Feel close to nature, go back to basics, leave all your devices at home and just be quiet at Isla Naburot!

We booked our "Valentine"s Day" weekend in Isla Naburot. It was a back to basic island life experience. There was no electricity but you don't need it since each cottages has huge windows. Open rain-shower! The package that we got comes breakfast, lunch and dinner. The island chef/cook will ring the bell if the meal is ready. They serve great and delicious Ilonggo dishes. We were worried about the serving size when we booked the package but we're so surprised when we had our first Lunch, It was good for a family of 4-6. We love to eat but we can't finish everything! Foodie haven especially with the best mango in the world. Guimaras mangoes are the best! It was unforgettable and the best vacation we ever had. Great service! Excellent food! Amazing island experience!

We loved staying on the small island of isla naburot during four days with our two small children. It offers simple pleasures such as taking the paddle boat to look for snorkeling or beach spots in the neighboring creeks, spending time enjoying the best food we ever had in the Philippines, listening to the wind at night from the traditional wooden cottage, showing the fireflies and the crabs to the kids. We were the only tourists during our stay, and had time to exchange with our hosts who spend their week ends on this family owned island one hour away from ilo ilo by boat. The place deserves a bit of publicity and could do with more visitors to its spacious cottages and generous cooking capacity!

This was an amazing experience that I will never forget. The moment you get to the island you feel the peace of simple living in beautiful surroundings. The rooms are open to the air with fine nets over the bed so you immediately feel close to nature and awed by the beauty of everything. The food is hands down the best in the Philippines. It was astounding what they could create with only fresh ingredients and fire. It is my ideal world to spend the morning relaxing to the smell of cooking. There is also snorkelling and caves and boats to explore. What made everything just perfect was our host, one of the family members that owns the resort. She made us feel like we were being welcomed to their home. We loved chatting with her and her husband and loved the whole experience. Thanks so much.

The natural beauty of Isla Naburot is showcased here at this eco-friendly resort. While I hoped for the exquisite beach and the gorgeous vegetation, I didn't expect that both would be rivaled by the outstanding gourmet meals. The heart and sole of the island is a lovely, gentle woman by the name of "Isa" who's passion is making your experience perfect. She succeeded- our visit to Naburot was amazing.

It's a very rare opportunity to experience a place like Isla Naburot. It's raw,peaceful and beautiful. It's like back to the basic and it's so much better. Very private place away from it all! Food was excellent too!

The name means beautiful island. Been to this little family-owned island three times so far - because it is so expensive to go there. My hubby said that Isla Naburot is not a place to read a book...but rather, it is a place where you can write your book. It is quiet, secluded and private. Its lack of electricity adds to the romanticism of the place - which is very evident at night. The whole island is lighted with candles and lanterns...hello honeymooners and old couples wishing to re-ignite forgotten sparks. This is one holiday place where one can truly relax - leave your 21st century gadgets behind...reconnect with yourself and your loved ones with the old-fashioned face-to-face interaction. Another thing that you should leave behind is your diet. Ladies, forget, for at least 3 days, your diet because Isla boasts of 5-star homecooked, hot meals - breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner. Isla Naburot, though, does not advertise because the family wants to preserve the "uncommercial" feel of their jewel of an island. I suggest that you google "isla naburot" and articles about the island will pop on your browser...the best one is <whoridesavespa.com/2006/11/18/destination-isla-naburot> complete with photos and contact numbers.
