Guerrera Rice Paddy Villas

guerrera, camiguin

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.

This above all: Be Unique

Have you every felt deja vu when you go to a resort? Same bossa nova track in the background, same plastic weave furniture, same menu, same everything. There is nothing about Guerrera that is meant to be ordinary or everyday. From our location on a remote island like Camiguin, to our innovative cuisine, to the timeless design of our villas,  to our one of a kind natural setting, our goal is to provide rare and fulfilling experiences to guests.  Whatever we provide or choose not to provide, know that it is by design.

Natural views, not walls

Why travel thousands of miles just to look at a wall? 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.

Amenities

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   Your TV has been replaced by a full bookshelf for your refreshment.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.

Guerrera Beach Villa

Beach villa

Built in 2017, our  beach villa is situated beside the two rice paddy villas but lies a mere single step  away from the beach–and the view of white island is simply stunning.  If you like the sound of waves coming in, you will get your sleep here.

The beach villa shares much of the same look and feel and features as the rice paddy villas but is roomier and can better suit 2- 4 people.  While it does not have a bathtub, yet,  it features a green roof deck with vegetable garden, a hand-made Spanish tiled table and an unbelievable 180 degree view of the sea and the rice paddies. It is easily our best table on the entire property.

Guerrera Restaurant

guerrera, camiguin

Located in a rice paddy on the Philippine island of Camiguin, Guerrera is a true farm to table restaurant, growing up to 40 different species of vegetables and herbs and of course, rice, just meters from the kitchen.  Just about everything is made slowly, by hand, and the use of processed and packaged ingredients is kept to a minimum.

The emphasis for Le cordon bleu-trained chef ( Bangkok) and owner, Carmel Therese Almadrones is on creativity and exploration.  Her “Fine Asian Street Food” eatery has become a destination for foodies and chefs alike and her ever-changing seasonal menu includes both signature creations and more traditional dishes from across Asia. The cuisines of Thailand, Vietnam, India, Indonesia and Malaysia are featured and the selections are balanced for both vegetarians and carnivores.

A meal at Guerrera also offers spectacular views of the Bohol sea, White island, our vibrant rice paddies and gardens and volcanic mount Hibok-Hibok.

Calling all adventurous diners…
