Rice paddy villas
Featuring fine Asian cuisine, stunning natural settings and vintage rooms, Guerrera Rice Paddy Villas are designed for foodies, naturalists, and all those prefer the road less traveled.
While we have our photogenic days, we have absolutely no interest in being known as an instagrammable destination or to be part of some trend in farm to table cooking. Our main goal is to provide rare and fulfilling experiences to our guests and this is reflected in everything we offer– from our innovative cuisine, to the timeless design of our villas, to our one of a kind natural setting. Even Camiguin itself, being a remote island far from commercial development, was chosen with this idea in mind. When guests one day look back on their trip to Guerrera, we want them to remember how they felt, not just what they did.
Natural views, not cement walls
Set in a lush and serene rice paddy steps from the beach, all of our villas were specifically designed to give guests the best views of nature, including the paddies and both White Island and volcanic mount Hibok-Hibok. Each accommodation is very private, as is the property itself, which sits alone at the end of a quiet country road.
Golden age thinking
We take great pride in the distinctive character of our accommodations which are neither modern, native or commercial. Meant to evoke an earlier, slower, more romantic time, each room includes Spanish tiles, Vietnamese lanterns, colonial shutters, bamboo ceilings and hand-tailored native hardwood. Unique details abound and virtually everything was built on premises, by hand.
Each of the two villas has a generous wrap around deck and because life is short, an over-sized outdoor bathtub, for two, directly facing the rice paddies. Along with a queen-sized bed, a pullout sofa is provided. We feel the villa is best suited for 2 people.
Modern amenities include WiFi, brand new air-conditioning, hot water heaters for both shower and tub and top quality memory foam beds. Your TV has been replaced by a full bookshelf for your refreshment.
Service style/guest focus
We operate more like a bed and breakfast than a traditional resort in that service is casual and personal. As hosts, we provide comfort and restoration, and hopefully some humor, but we do not believe in over-luxuriating guests. Pampering is for the pampered and instead, a stay at Guerrera provides opportunities to savor life’s rare moments.
