Bahay Kalipay is an intimate ashram style space where guests, teachers and facilitators make themselves at home. Some of our independent structures include Issa Hut with double bedrooms and the Ma-I common space, our personal Dap-ay “beach,” the Healing Arts hut we call, Pugad ng Diwata, and Kalipay Kafé, which is also open to the general public for breakfast, lunch and dinner by reservation.
Accommodations include private couples cabin, family rooms, and individual rooms for our guests, which are almost always retreatants. We have a daily onsite staff of kitchen personnel, guest relations and retreat facilitators, and offer daily housekeeping as requested, and as-needed laundry services. Guests of Bahay Kalipay can take advantage of our gentle detox, deep cleanse program of raw food, yoga classes, workshops, spa services and more.
Liwanag, Punla, Hangin, Sinag, and Daloy Rooms
All five rooms in the Main House are on the third floor with views of the evergreen Palawan horizon. We have 2 single rooms, 2 double rooms with a balcony, and a triple ideal for families. All rooms are open-air, equipped with an electric fan and mosquito netting to keep the bugs at bay while sleeping. Some rooms have a balcony and/or split level lofts for meditation or additional storage. Alternatively, guests can choose to sleep in the open air on the the landing area of Ma-I space, with simple beddings and mosquito nets. We also have private rooms available.
The second floor split-level room is a large inner dance space designed to provide conditions for healing, silent and insightful spiritual practice. This is where personal early morning meditations are held, as well as yoga classes, and in the afternoons and evenings, inner dance sessions, workshops and other gatherings. Ma-I and the accommodations area are closed to the public during retreat days and healing workshops and sessions.
Pugad ng Diwata “Healing Hut”
Referred to the “nest” in English, the space is for massage and one-on-one healing sessions. The second story landing is set up with an altar and a collection of books, ideal for contemplation, prayer or a well-deserved siesta.
Our little backyard beach. In the mornings, the functional sandy zen garden is a venue for tea and yoga. In the afternoons, the garden is used for soulwork workshops and earth healing. And in the evening, it has hosted bonfires, star and moon gazing, drum circles, tribal ceremonies, singing, fire dancing, and cozy conversation.
Our dining room can seat 24 comfortably, and has squeezed up to 35 guests, as diners enjoy our creatively-prepared raw, organic, mostly vegan cuisine using quality ingredients sourced from certified local producers. It is adorned with a collection of spiritual art by artists who have visited Bahay Kalipay and have left some of their work to share. The Kafé is also open to guests who are keen to experience Bahay Kalipay and meet some of the residents. However, advanced reservation required.
Due to on-going retreats, we limit our walk-in dining customers and request a call or text in advance to secure your reservation +63 (0)939 914 3414.
