If you'd like to do El Nido Bacuit Bay island hopping (tour A, B, C, D or a combination/luxury tour) we recommend either doing it before of after your stay, or if you'd prefer staying with us for your entire stay, we can assist to organize transport (boat & land transfer) back and forth to El Nido for the tour.
What's the beach like?
The beach is really nice for for wading in shallow areas. If you'd like to explore the reef please bring water shoes. The tide can go out pretty far during low tide. There are some nice hiking paths along the beach that will take you to deeper swimming area if you'd like to swim during low tide.
Are there bugs?
Yes, and we welcome you to the great outdoors! We are very intentional in blurring the lines between outside/inside spaces, to allow a true connection with nature to occur. As such insects and animals roam freely (chickens, pigs, goats, cows). This experience is not for everyone. If you're afraid, but would like to no longer be afraid we can help you to reconnect to nature.
Is there electricity?
We have solar powered lights in the restaurant. You will be provided with flashlights for your room, as there is no electricity in the rooms.
What is a composting toilet?
At Harmony Healing Resort we use waterless composting toilets. You use them exactly the same as a regular toilet, however instead of flushing you pour sawdust in the toilet. We then compost the the waste and after 1-2 years it is ready to be used as a safe, nutrient rich organic fertilizer. We will teach you how to use the toilets.
How can I book the entire resort for a retreat or wedding?
We welcome group bookings. Please email us to let us know exactly what you'd like and together we can come up with a package and or activities that meet your needs.
