Located on the southeastern tip of the island of Siargao in the Philippines, Nay Palad sits between a white sand beach on the Pacific Ocean and an ancient mangrove forest and has undergone a complete redesign and rebuild following over 85% of the island being destroyed in 2022.
Dreamed up by founder Bobby Dekeyser (former goalkeeper for Bayern Munich, founder of global furniture company DEDON… and now raising Alpacas in Ibiza!) and his daughter Carolin, who is based in London, the resort is a model of sustainable luxury, coupled with original and exciting features at every turn.
Enlisting the talents of celebrated, award-winning designer and friend, Daniel Pouzet - renowned for his incredible art installation structures - the team have created a socially-conscious home from home, with a staff of almost 100% Filipino; ensuring local traditions and timeless beauty combine with the highest contemporary standards of comfort, environmental and social responsibility.
Adopting the belief that ‘small is beautiful’, the new resort will offer 10 intimate villas ranging from one-bedroom to three-bedrooms - including the breathtaking Perlah Villa, which has its own private beach, pool and treehouse - alongside a number of unique, architecturally-inspiring spaces that promote wellness and the benefits of embracing a barefoot state of mind.
In line with this philosophy, Nay Palad offers all-inclusive rates; an approach that allows every guest experience to be different, with their time on the island carefully curated and highly personalised throughout, encouraging guests to tune into their own rhythm, eat when and where they want and fully indulge in island living.
The menu is designed daily to centre around freshly caught and grown produce, room amenities and products are naturally sourced and created, and at the heart of the resort, is an unfaltering commitment to supporting the local community through a number of programmes and initiatives both on and off island.
With its stunning scenery and a range of activities, Siargao Island is often referred to as the surf capital of the Philippines and guests can enjoy surfing, water sports and island hopping. The Hideaway Spa specialises in Hilot - a Filipino massage tradition acclaimed for its healing abilities - and there is a dedicated yoga pavilion and an outdoor cinema, to name a few.
