Tourists come from all over the world to swim with the whale sharks, but not too many know about this inspired hideaway along the road...

This is the work of acclaimed designer Milo Naval.

Drawing inspiration from the iconic bahay kubo (traditional Filipino house), Milo's vision has been perfectly executed.

Even the pool is designed to work in harmony with nature - it's cool during the heat of the day, but gradually warms for a perfect evening swim.

Siama features locally-sourced Bicolano dishes such as "kinunot" and "lato" (sea grapes).  They also serve a famous "kilig" tinola (chicken soup)...

A World-Class Hotel Featuring Native-Inspired Design


In my opinion, Siama is one of the few upscale resorts in the Philippines that is actually worth the price - I wouldn't change a thing about this place.  I was impressed that such a simple, artistic space could still feel so warm and inviting.  Truly inspirational.


With his use of organic and reclaimed materials, Milo's love for the environment is also very apparent.

That's because at the end of the day, Siama is an experience.  More than just an is a work of art - one you can savor with all five senses.
