The leaves rustle quietly in the rainforest. The waves quietly approach then draw back, seemingly hesitant to disturb the peaceful shore. This is sanctuary, this is Kamana. Nestled between an old-growth rainforest and the gentle Nabasan Bay, Kamana Sanctuary offers shelter from the hectic noise and frantic pace of the city. Every modern comfort has been thoughtfully provided in each room, to ensure only one thing - that you leave refreshed, recharged.

This trip is long overdue as it was postponed due to changing quarantine status that affected travel between NCR and Region 3. Nevertheless, the management made good of its commitments to us and we were never charge a centavo more than the stipulated cost of the vacation package. Great service is one of the reasons for coming back. The staff will do their best to make your stay as momentous as possible. Foor is delicious. True it is quiet pricey but the cost of bringing supply to the resort from the market makes it reasonable for a person with a clear mind. Thr facilities were upgraded and additional watersports activities were offered to guests. My verdict? I shall return and enjoy a restful weekend there.

This is our second time to stay in Kamana. We really like it there because the place is clean, spacious, amenities are nice, and the staff are friendly, courteous and quick to respond to your needs. There were only a few other people staying there, or so it seemed because we rarely bump into other people maybe because the place is big. This time we got the the deluxe twin loft room and it was very nice! But it was situated at the 3rd floor and there was no elevator so it was a bit hard for our seniors to go up there. Breakfast buffet was good with many variety. Ala carte was also good but servings are small and very expensive. And service was slow. The beach is amazing. The water is clear and they offer water activities like kayak and paddle boat. However, the sand is a bit rocky with lots of shells so it would be a good idea to bring aqua shoes. All in all, we enjoyed our stay in Kamana and we will definitely go back there.

Firsr time to visit this resort and I must say I was impressed. Hospitality is top notch and the overall cleanliness of the area including the rooms are amazing. This resort offers water activities and also has an inhouse restaurant which serves great food! Good for families or groups on a vacation. Very relaxing place, truly a sanctuary! Pros: + Great, friendly staff, I commend all of you! + Good food, we ate all our meals in their restaurant during our stay, hotel booking includes buffet breakfast + Nice view of the Zambales mountain range, clean and relaxing pool and beach area, with plenty of areas to bask in the sun! + Clean and very modern-designed resort bldgs and grounds + Spacious rooms with complete amenities of a hotel, very comfortable beddings. Cons: - Open parking, under the sun, but not much of a problem - Water shower toggle faulty at times but just a minor issue (Rm312) Overall a great stay and had a fun time with my family. Planning on coming back soon! One of the best in Subic which does not break the bank! Worth every penny

Cons 1. FO - not knowledgeable about their Yuletide Season promotion; using mobile phones while speaking to guest. 2. Breakfast - a lot of flies specially on the pastry area; didnt bother to cover it with a cling wrap or something 3. Extremely weak wifi inside the room - IT staff really didnt do anything about it. 4. Restaurant Staff - not knowledgeable about their breakfast and dinner. When asked about whether it's buffet or ala carte, he answered that it was ala carte, then he turned to his colleague asking (shouting - pare buffet ba tayo bukas or ala carte) if it's really ala carte or buffet. When he corrected him, the waiter then turned to me and said, "buffet pala mam" it's as if i didnt heard them at all. It's like we're in a palengke. 5. Christmas dinner buffet - really expensive but the variety and quality of food is just so so. Refilling of the food takes also a lot of time and the buffet is just until 9pm. 6. Sales Team - called them before our arrival date asking about the prices of the yuletide season promotions specifically the christmas dinner and she answered "basta di po lalagpas ng 2500 mam" She also said to me "Saan niyo po nakuha number ko? Corporate bookings kasi hawak ko, sa reservations po kayo tumwag." Pro: 1. Room is big and spacious Overall, it's a waste of money. For the price you're paying, extremely poor service. Untrained staff. I think you should invest in training and taking good care of your staff better so that they can take better care of your guests. PS. I can only commend Jeleneah for exerting the service that was due to the guests. Knowledgeable and accommodating.

Super friendly staff and very nice view. We were in the Casitas and the price was worth it. The place is serene and quiet. As busy people, my fiancé and I were really looking for some place where we can really relax. ❤️ Just wish there were more food choices, or maybe it was because of restricted number of guests that's why they don't have many food to choose from. Will definitely go back!

Try the Kare Kare or Osso bucco. F A N T A S T I C Food!! Great staff. Nice rooms although it could do a little face lift. Great beds. Kids love the place. The monkeys can be annoying specially the alpha males! quiet quiet quiet place. Avoid the rooms over the water. They might be noisy because of the waves. The rooms at the end of the row are no longer structurally sound.

A bit pricey and is a 30-minute drive from the centre of Subic Bay freeport (including about a 10 minute drive along a small road -- but paved -- from the highway) but is well worth it. There is a sign on the highway and several more on the road from the highway but best to use GPS or Waze. There are no houses in this area -- because it is a sanctuary after all (I find it hilarious that some people on Tripadvisor complained about how secluded this place is and that there were monkeys around). Check in during daytime; it can be a difficult drive at night unless you are familiar with the area. Unlike other places in Subic and Bataan, Kamana does not accept guests who are only there for the day; this makes the resort very private. All the staff are very friendly and greet their guests. They seem happy because they always serve with a smile. The rooms are large, and the beds as well. The WiFi signal is very strong throughout the property, including the beach. I have read some really bad reviews about this resort on Trip Advisor and I wonder whether we all went to the same resort -- I could not see what they were complaining about. Breakfast buffet (which comes with the room rate) is fabulous. Fruits, cereal, rice, tapa (very good),

Large rooms nice shower ( should really have a hand shower attachment as well). Two wash basins. Room well lit and a wooden window/door with shutters.Air conditioning excellent easy to control as well as first class TV. Exceptional WiFi. Some rooms are built out into the sea. Food was good we stayed at New Year so the catering was all arranged as part of the evening entertainment . The entire resort was newly built it did not rely on any existing buildings or facilities as part of the old Naval Base. A great view of the sea and amazing sunsets and idyllic sunrises.Staff were exceptionally friendly. Be aware anytime there is a function in the centre of the grounds it will be noisy.
