    One Of The Best Spots In Siargao”

    We've been going to Siargao for almost 10 years now and have stayed with groups at numerous places around the island. Not only is Kokai a fantastic resort with clean and comfortable rooms, but Sandy, Am, Theresa and the rest of the crew at Kokai really make the effort to make your stay special. Personal friendly service, helpful staff and good conversation are all part of the package at Kokai. Whether you are travelling solo, with a friend or in a group, Kokai has great facilities for your stay and awesome knowledge of the island and all it has to offer. Can't recommend them more! Thanks for the great stay Kokai :)

    Accessible area”

    The place is perfect since it's in the heart of GL. When you step out of the hotel you are immediately immersed in the bright lights of Siargao. Just across the road is a bulaloan. Definitely worth your money. One thing I could suggest in their group rooms the bed had no railings on the side for the double-deck beds, the guests sleeping at the top bunk might fall anytime if they don't mind their sleeping positions, but all in all the place is great, you have your own hammock outside your kubo, which I really liked!

    Its nice. But better if there is a private bath or at least a direct door to the bathroom from the room. Quite inconvenient going out of the room to go to the toilet esp when showering. They dont clean your room too, (only the outside of the bungalow) but you can sweep the floor yourself just ask for a broom. Very friendly owner. We were welcomed nicely and their staff are friendly and approachable.

    A nice option for the budget traveler ”

    Kokai is a small resort on Tourist Road which connects downtown General Luna with the famous Cloud 9 surfing area. There’re lots of restaurants nearby. The resort itself offered no breakfast or other food; it has no seaview and is a short walk from the beach; and the washroom and shower was located outside our cottage and shared with another cottage. But staff the cottage was quite cozy with good aircon, staff was friendly, and the cost very economical for this area.

    Budget accommodation along GL area.”

    My stay in this is resort is so basic, it has AC inside and it's spacious but the restroom is outside. It has no TV inside the room. I stayed here for 5D4N and I only paid Php6,382.40. No inclusive of breakfast. That's Php1,595.60 for 2 pax/night and I think that's already a good deal considering the location. But this is one of the accommodations in Siargao along GL area which has the lowest rate. This is near (walking distance) the well-known Bravo Resort and Mama's Grill. When I arrived in the area, I passed through the resort because I didn't notice it was Kokai. The name of the resort was changed due to change of management and I was not informed prior to my arrival. I still needed to ask from locals to locate this resort though. My stay was quite okay, staff was not that accommodating, it seems they're too much busy with the renovation works they're doing during that time. What I don't like here is, the water in the restroom smells like mud. Still a good stay in Siargao.

    Great location with proximity to restaurants and far enough from the noise from clubs. No bed bugs is a huge plus... but you get a basic 4 inch foam mattress; it’s comfortable enough though. What appeared to be black mold in the bathroom. The shower curtain was pretty disgusting and should have been replaced long ago. The pillow cases were clean, thankfully, but the pillows were stained. The fan was perfect to keep us cool. We chose it over the AC which worked fine.

    Smooth and Relaxing Stay”

    Thank you Kokai Resort for an overall relaxing stay with you. Value For Money: We stayed for 2 nights in a "kubo"/nipa hut style standard room for PHP 2,877.00 only. It's a pretty good catch for us! Location: Kokai Resort is 7-10 minutes away from Cloud 9 ( famous surfing spot in Siargao) via tricycle/habal habal. It's walking distance to famous restaurants such as La Carinderia, Kermit Restaurant, Mama's Grill, Altrove, Illy, Sushi Nori, some Vegan restos, hangout/party bars, etc. But if you're on a tight budget, no worries cos affordable carinderia and bakeshops are also near the resort. Cleanliness: We arrived in our room with clean towels and sheets. Staff: Staff are very accommodating. We're really glad that they allowed us to check-in at 11am although check-in time is 1pm. They also arranged the van transfer to airport for us. Facilities - The resort doesn't have swimming pool, gym, kids' playroom, etc. but duuuuhh! you're in Siargao, you don't need those. Explore, enjoy and feel the island vibe! PS. We're Frankie the doggo is so cuuute and nice. Thank you, Kokai! We hope to be back real soon.

    Amazing Resort!!”

    Sorry it took us so long to write a review! We had an amazing stay at Kokai Resort. The owner Sandy was friendly and super accommodating! We booked everything through Sandy (day trips, transportation), and if he wasn't around, Gail (owner) was always there if we needed anything. The bungalow itself was huge! Could easily fit 5. Although Wifi wasn't available in the room, it would reach our deck so we could sit on the patio at any time to use it. Bathroom was clean, as well as the bungalow. The aircon was pretty good and would cool the whole place down. The beach that it's located on isn't the best for swimming but is nice to stroll on. Located close to a popular disco, 20 min walk to cloud 9, and 5 minute walk to mama's grill (popular bbq joint). Transportation can be easily arranged for anywhere you need to go. Motorcycles are also available for rent on request. If you're looking to stay in an affordable place and aren't too picky about being so close to cloud 9, then this is your place! The staff are super friendly and accommodating and the bungalows are private and clean. I stayed here with my boyfriend and I can say without hesitation that if I were to make another trip, this is where I would stay! Lindsay and Adam Vancouver, Canada

    Great place!”

    I had the best time staying in Kokai resort. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating, so was the owner of the resort. On the last day just before my flight I had a heat stroke and they made everything needed to organize transfer to the hospital and then to the airport. I stayed in the dorm room and had a chance to meet a lot of travelers. It also felt very safe. The rooms have been cleaned every day, the bathroom and the toilets were always clean as well. I had daily breakfasts there, as the food was tasty with good variety. I’d strongly recommend this resort and would surely be back myself.

    Our stay was good except for...”

    Location + near cloud 9, boulevard and other restaurants - the beach front is not suitable for swimming you have to walk further near Isla Cabana or the cemetery Staff + they always acted fast when we requested for something - I don't exactly like very bubbly and energetic employees but a little warmness would have been nice, they were all straight faced throughout our stay - During the boat ride to Siargao, we met a boatman who offers island hopping tours so we agreed to go with him already. When we arrived at the resort, the staff offered a boat for island hopping so we said we already have, then one staff said that IT IS NOT ALLOWED to book with other boats. Since we our staying at their hotel we SHOULD book them because they can't be responsible for us if they don't know the boatman. I understand her reason but THE WAY she told us was awkward because she was IRRITATED and she REPRIMANDED us for not booking with them. In the end she said it is up to us but the damage has been done so to speak. Facilities + 24 hours front desk and staff - they closed the restaurant because it is not peak season (which I understand) but it would have been nice not to walk further or take a habal just to eat a meal Others + wifi was fast + interior and exteriors was good - The water in the bathroom smells of metal which was a bit disgusting and the drainage was also a problem, after taking a bath your feet will be soaked already - our door cannot be locked so EVERYTIME we would go out we would ask the staff to lock it for us but they too cannot lock it saying previous guests have broke it so I was thinking if they know it was broken in the first place why didn't they have it fixed?! Anyway, they said they would look after the room for us and the place is safe but that didn't make us feel secured.

    Had a great time in Siargao and enjoyed my stay at Kokai Resort. The owner Sandy, his fiancé and staff were very friendly and helpful and made me feel right at home. Wish I could have stayed there longer.

    Amazing stay‼️”

    Friendly staff The water has an unpleasant smell at first use, but they amazingly clean the area. They clean the bed and the room daily even without instructions from guest. Best Location to stay in General Luna Spacious parking space for bikes Will surely book again in the future.
