‘Pahiluna’ is Cebuano and means in English ‘comfort/to settle’. We’d like to invite you to truly install yourself in our little paradise and find your peace of mind…
Pahiluna Guesthouse is an ideal place for travellers who like to enjoy a peaceful vacation on Panglao island, Bohol. Just 5 min walk away from white sandy Danao Beach, which is still a quiet corner on this island with a large natural stretch of beach beside the few beachfront facing resorts.
The concept of Pahiluna including the three-storey Mainhouse, the Octagon House (Bungalow) and a native Bamboo Cottage were designed and constructed by owner Roberto Bahala. Built on stilts (for more cleanliness inside) and surrounded by plenty of trees providing shade, Pahiluna is an airy, cool place to stay during day-time. Our guesthouse was made with local materials such as mahagony wood from sustainable sources, bamboo, coconut wood and concrete and was constructed with the aid of local construction workers and carpenters.
We are very proud that the first construction phase with the Octagon House was completed early 2016, followed by the Bamboo Cottage and the Mainhouse in July 2017 with all permits to guarantee our guests’ well-being and safety.
When you consider visiting Panglao, Bohol away from mass-tourism in a quieter, more natural environment we would be delighted to host you very soon and if needed also support you on planning your individual Bohol adventure!
Nathalie & Roberto Bahala,
owners of Pahiluna Guesthouse
