Designed to blend with the environment, Kayak Inn is an adventure camp that offers rustic bamboo hut accommodation along Tibiao River, Antique. The native huts are made of crushed bamboo, each with a garden bathroom and a “kawa” – a large wok-like bath for two that is heated by fire.
As a base camp for adventure, Kayak Inn is the jump-off point for thrilling activities including river kayaking, rafting, mountain biking and hiking up waterfalls. It also offers more relaxed activities such as soaking in the Kawa hot baths, full body massages and social interaction with the local upland villagers.
The adventure camp, then as now, has no electricity. However, it does have thousands of fireflies lighting up the acacia trees on the banks of the Tibiao River.
Kayak Inn is located in the upland village of Tuno, a sleepy, picturesque village, ideal for unwinding and taking in the local color. Only two hours away from Caticlan (or four hours from Iloilo City) the camp is a healthy break from the partying of Boracay Island or the stress of city life. Your quiet relax at Kayak Inn is met with heaps of fresh food, fruit and the local coconut wine called “tuba”. For those seeking some adrenaline, long treks through the rainforest and exhilarating sessions in rafts or kayaks on the Tibiao River await!
