Filipino guests know all about the Kubo. Their kids are taught about it in one of the first traditional folk songs they learn.
For Australian, Continental or British tourists, think of it like a bamboo and palm Caravan or CamperVan accommodation, parked in a beautiful place. I guess Americans would say it is like a small Trailer :-)
You have a beautiful sheltered area to sit and enjoy the breeze and the island, and a closed sleeping area. The raised sleeping platform is traditionally made from bamboo slats.
The picture on the right does not show the bedding supplied to guests. It is just to show the size of the sleeping area. Enough room to stretch out comfortably.
The Cafe is also looking nice and has been popular. More decoration has been done and it is now an inviting and relaxing place to be.
At Isla Verde Tourist Friendly Resort we are trying to have a low impact on the ecology of Isla Verde, while we offer overseas guests a chance to have a holiday where they can experience the real Filipino lifestyle, rather than fancy airconditioned city hotels and bright lights.
We hope also that our Filipino guests will have the chance to come as family groups and let their younger kids experience life on an island while still only being a few hours from Manila.
With no vehicle traffic on the islands it is a good place for the kids to enjoy healthy activities like walking, playing and swimming.
For the adults, there is hiking, swimming, snorkeling, diving (can be arranged), fishing and other activities. Or just relaxing without the constant sounds of the city.
