Nay Palad Hideaway, Philippines

It doesn’t get much for idyllic than the stylish Nay Palad Hideaway on Siargao Island in the southern Philippines.


Where is it?
On Siargao Island in the southern Philippines, three hours from Manila

Why is it amazing?
Perched on the south-eastern tip of Siargao, overlooking a private bay, Nay Palad Hideaway, formerly Dedon Island Resort, could well be the perfect resort. The brainchild of Bobby Dekeyser, the founder of exclusive handcrafted outdoor furniture brand Dedon, the resort acts as an ‘Outdoor Living Lab’ to test the performance of Dekeyser’s sought-after designs.

But Nay Palad Hideaway is much more than just a lab with great furniture; sitting snug between ancient mangrove forests and its own organic farm, nine sumptuous wood and thatch guest villas each have large verandahs, floating pods and sensuous earthy tones. The property is all inclusive and guests are encouraged to indulge in whatever takes their fancy, from the spectacular food coming from the kitchen to the countless activities.

Go snorkelling, paddle to little known lagoons and caves, get a massage, catch your own dinner from the sea pagoda 500 metres from shore or claim a designer pod and just watch the world go by; from here it’s a beautiful place.
Don’t leave without attempting to surf Cloud 9, one of the most famous waves in the Philippines

When to go
March to May for the beach, August to November for surfing.

From $435 per person per night all inclusive; +63 917 701 7820;

    They have to be kidding!! The Philippines is a great place to visit. I’ve been there more than 30 times over 25 years. There are loads of fabulous places to stay other than this. My fav. is the Westin Philippine Plaza in Roxas Boulavarde Manila. $1,000 a night for a couple at this place??…Dedon Island ?….. too expensive. Boracay would leave it for dead.
