Why do discerning tourists, actors, families, & dignitaries choose us?
#1 All Inclusive & Hassle Free
Just show up in Batanes and we will do the rest!
Our goal is to ensure each one of our guests enjoy Batanes to the fullest - without worrying about where to stay, where to eat, where to go and all the hassles of arranging transportation in our islands. We know our clientele lead busy lives and do not have the time to research all the famous spots in Batanes, check every hotel to make sure they are ok, or test every restaurant to make sure they eat authentic & delicious food. We also know that our guests do not like "surprise" costs - did you know that upon arrival in Batanes all guests must pay tourism tax? Fortunately, for you we take care of all that. All you have to do is get to Batanes and maybe bring small pocket change for souvenirs - we literally take care of everything for you including - lodging, all meals, snacks, water, tourism fees, airport fees, airport transfers, tours, tour guides - pretty much whatever you need. If you have a question of what we provide - just ask! The only thing we do not provide is airfare.
#2 Amazing Sunset Lighthouse Dinner
We have a very special treat for our distinguished clientele. A unique and lovely sunset dinner and entertainment show at the Basco Lighthouse - the most famous landmark in Batanes.
We have an exclusive right on Friday's and Saturday's to host a very special dinner and show at this magnificent location where our guests can soak in the orange glow of the sun, feel the breeze, and enjoy the wonderful scenery. Ask about our lobster and coconut crab specials!
#3 Private Tours
After many years of guest feedback, we have found that the best way to experience Batanes is with your loved ones and friends.
Imagine touring our islands for half a day or full day at a time and having to share a 10 seater van with strangers? Sometimes you gel with others, sometimes you won't. We get feedback from guests joining other tour operators who do public group tours and they have bad experiences - their tours were spoiled by others who just weren't in the mood or had different motives - instead of saving money on a public, discounted tour - they actually wasted their money because their vacation was spoiled by others outside of their group. Don't be one of them!
With our tours - they are private so you can enjoy the scenery with the privacy and comfort of your loved ones and friends. You get your very own Van and Tour Guide so you can enjoy our tours at your own pace and leisure. Take as many pictures as you want. Ask our tour guide to take many many pictures- they will be glad to do so. Stay at the sights as long or as short as you want - you make the call, its your tour, not others.
Note that there are some transportation like the boat to Sabtang where you will ride with other groups - most of your tours will be in your own Van.
#4 - Deluxe Basco Town & Beach Front Accommodations
We know that our guests like to stay in a nice place, but not with crazy high prices like Fundacion. Our clientele enjoy the nicer things in life, but are also practical and like either like a laid back beach front setting or a nicely appointed downtown location close to where the locals frequent the most.
We vet each of our hotels - we know their owners, we know the rooms, we know the location. We make sure each of our rooms have private rest rooms and air condition - a must for our guests. We also make sure that the hotel is in a safe and convenient place where you can walk around the area and visit local stores, mingle with the Ivatans.
When you book with us, we take care of this research for you so you can be rest assured you will have a good location, good room, and hassle free experience.
#5 - Delicious, Authentic Ivatan Food
Last, but definitely not least, the most praise we get from our guests is about the flavor of our food. Our famous chef - Lidia Roberto of Batanes has catered to many, many famous actors, actresses, wedding parties, government officials, diplomats, officers, and of course, or honored guests - we are so honored that they all come back over and over again to eat our delicious Ivatan meals. Check out a sampling of our food - and yes! we catered for the Legaspi family when they visited Batanes.
