We didn't want to do the classic Land-In-Palawan-And-Immediately-Go-to-El-Nido route that most travelers do so we did some research and stumbled upon Kaibigan Soul Camp.

This place was great. It was off the traditionally beaten path. Great bungalows looking out at the water, DELICIOUS food (seriously, amazing), really cool and accommodating owners and a chilled out vibe. There were four of us and we rented a private bungalow. It was worth the ~2 days and 2 nights we spent there. I think any more than 3 nights and 3 days would be a bit much for us just because it's definitely on the quieter/more relaxed side - but if that's your thing, then you'll love it. Also, they really strive for a small carbon footprint and sustainability best practices which we love.

The ONLY reasons that this place didn't get 5 stars was for a few small and not hugely important reasons:

1.) They don't have A/C or Fans - This can be a problem if it gets really hot there and it was when we first arrived but it cools down A LOT at night, too. Just something to keep in mind.
2.) If you don't have international cell service, they don't have WiFi, which isn't a bad thing, but if you need to let family or friends of your safe arrival, you're out of luck.
3.) They ran out of cold beers when we were there! Haha. Given, they are not a party hostel so this isn't something they prep for probs, but we had a bit too much fun there and they were all out of the cold ones.
4.) The beachfront this property is on doesn't lend itself to nice swimming. The corral prevents cooling off comfortably in front of the hotel but there is a nicer beach about a 15-minute walk from the hotel.

All-in-all, though, we'd recommend this place for sure! Great spot.

Kaibigan Soul Camp is by far the most wonderful place I ever stayed in. There's magic in the surroundings, the food is pure deliciousness and Ellie, Pascale and Silke are absolutely fantastic and inspiring. It was my first technology-free vacation and I never knew I needed it until I arrived at Kaibigan Soul Camp. I am honestly feeling happier and more content than ever after my stay at Kaibigan Soul Camp and for that I am grateful to Ellie, Pascale and Silke for following their hearts in Cabayao and creating this paradise for everyone to enjoy.

Room Tip: They have accomodation for all budgets

No internet, no phone, no problems. Gorgeous new little resort with options for all kinds of travelers, from very small and basic to large spacious rooms. There are no other resorts in this part of Palawan so you really are away from the tourist trail in El Nido. Suggest that you go to El Nido first and then come here to experience peace and quiet. We stayed for 3 nights in a "Turtle" and we're very happy and comfortable. The owners are German and spent money creating this little sanctuary. Food was by far the best we had in all of Palawan, fresh and delicious. Two of the owners are DJs so the music (and sound system!) are excellent. Dinner is served family style in the main pavilion with great sunset views. Sand flies can be bad, but you are in the tropics and they are everywhere in Palawan so there is not much you can do except bring bug spray and something to relieve itching. Great place!

We had a very Nice stay at Kaibian Soul Camp. The atmosphere is relaxed and chilled. The owners are very kind. We did some yoga on a platform wjth an amazing view in the evening. The food is also very good and healthy! There is no wifi or phone signal, so you have The chance to relax completely!
We took a bus from the bus terminal in puorto princessa, which only went at 11 am that morning. You Can Also take a drycikle for extra money.
We were very relaxed after our stay. Thank you!

What a little gem this place is! Located on the West Coast of Palawan, this adorable camp is a wonderful refuge if you're looking to experience peace, solitude and self-care. The accommodations are beautifully designed, the food delicious and the local community surrounding the camp is gracious and kind. There's scuba diving, boat trips, yoga and a few other great activities to do, or you can laze on the private beach to your heart's content. The only downside is that there is no Wifi or cellphone signal-- which may be a blessing for some-- but tough for anyone who needs to check in on occassion with family and/or work. I'd recommend this camp to anyone with a handful of days to spare on the trip of a lifetime.

Room Tip: Turtle Huts sit right on the beach and are excellent for anyone interested in glamping on a budget!
