In August 2019, Travel Bunny stayed at the beautiful and sustainably set The Cabins at LVF. Palawan is a short 1 hour flight from Manila, Philippines.
Beth and Paul are wonderful hosts at this beautiful farm stay close to Puerto Princesa in Palawan Island. Most people arrive and stay closer to town or head north to the eco-tourism destination El Nido.
Embracing sustainability principles they have used existing rooms on the farm and transformed them into comfortable guest rooms and glamping/lounge space. My room definitely felt luxurious in the lighting, set up and bathroom area.
Different towels were offered to reduce washing and chemical use of white towels, which is a great idea! Large refillable soap dispensers were in place of single use soaps that still are too common in accommodation.
Being on the farm, most of the food was sourced from the farm itself or from neighbouring farms and most definitely all from lovely Palawan. Paul being the chef created delicious meals and baked the bread as well. Fresh tropical fruits, avocados and salad. Such a delight to have a plastic free meal.
Bernadette has worked hard with the local community and has employed a number of indigenous people to work on the farm. This gives them employment, financial security and teaches them financial literacy. The farm produces jams as well as fresh produce supplied to local restaurants.
The Cabins is a lovely place to stay, very close to Honda Bay and not far from Puerto Princesa by tricycle. Bernadette and Paul are great hosts, it’s a lovely sustainable place to stay. As they opened in early 2019, best to visit before everyone else finds out about it!
Plan to stay more than 1 night to really enjoy the area and the farm.
This is more of a luxury pricing, Travel Bunny paid 2,903 Phillipine Pesos per night. Book directly with Beth, so the money goes directly back to them.
