This unique mountain lodge overlooking Banaue’s World Heritage Rice Terraces is a super cool spot to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The Native Village website is quick to point out that this is NOT a five-star resort. “We are a simple resort with fantastic views, with spotlessly clean shared showers and toilets.” So if you’re not into sharing, this might not be the place for you. But...the views might change your mind.
Perfect for backpackers who want to experience what it feels like to spend a night inside an Ifugao hut, the Village Inn is small and authentic. The inn also offers tours around the Hapao Rice Terraces. Adventure seekers can also check out the ice-cold Hapao river and Bogyah Hot Spring.
Adventures got you hungry? A simple restaurant offers guests dishes like pork tenderloin stew and chicken with vegetables in a coconut curry sauce. While this spot may not be Michelin-rated, it’s perfect for grabbing a bite and filling your stomach before the next adventure.
