This is a boutique resort with only 9 rooms, so expect an intimate and relaxing getaway. The cabanas are perfect for lounging by the infinity pool, which by the way was the perfect temperature! We were in "Sayop 6", the penthouse room with an ocean view and it was absolutely lovely! Service is EXCEPTIONAL!

After visiting many countries in the world and staying at many 5 star resorts, Abaca is really one of a kind. The integrity and total privacy is amazing. With first class customer service, they pampered me an my family in a way we never had expected. The staff of the Abaca are very very friendly, alert, warm and generous in...

We had a near-perfect holiday at Abaca. I was a little apprehensive when we were not immediately greeted at the airport and waited outside for 10 minutes. The airport porter eventually found the hotel van and the staff was very apologetic for not meeting us indoors. Once we were whisked away from the airport, the Abaca experience was second to...

The hotel. The staff. The resort. Just lovely. Food was amazing. Worth every penny. Even though it is a small hotel compared to the other 5 star hotels beside it, it truly stands out. If you value privacy and intimacy and want to feel pampered you should definitely come here. Awesome people. Awesome chef. Its like accommodations at a 5...

The Abaca has very friendly and helpful staff and great food. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff were always available when we needed help and flexible with our requests. The pool and cabanas were a quiet haven to rest and relax in.

We stayed at Abaca Boutique Resort 4 nights in January, and I don't think we'd had better service at a hotel before. On arrival we got to meet our designated butler, who would make sure our stay would be comfortable and nice (and he did). We stayed at the Oceanfront spa villa, and it was big and nice, and with...

We were here for a 3D/2N stay with my husband and our toddler son. I have been to many restaurants and stayed at many hotels but the way Abaca does things makes this place standout. We have been very much cared for most especially our little guy who needed extra TLC because of his food allergies. All our needs were...

The service, the views, the accommodations, the food...everything was superb. I could not have asked for a better stay. I highly recommend the Abaca. It was a great treat and I wish I could have stayed longer.

I was blown away by the mere fact there are only 16 suites and the amazing service and fantastic restaurant. I was able to stay in a villa and I must say that having your own private pool is incredible. Staying at this hotel should be on everyone's bucket list
