Fundacion Pacita Batanes Nature Lodge in Basco, Batanes, Philippines

Experience the Best of Batanes

Earth and art come together at Fundacion Pacita Batanes Nature Lodge to create a most unforgettable and picturesque stay in Basco, Batanes, Philippines. Set atop a lush hill and caught between the mountain, sea, and sky, the hotel offers the best spot from which to view the scenic landscape and the cultural and aesthetic heritage of the Ivatan people.

The lodge, once the home studio of internationally acclaimed artist Pacita Abad, pays homage to its creative roots with Ivatan-inspired rooms and suites. Resembling a gallery, each uniquely designed accommodation is adorned by artworks of both well-known and up-and-coming artists. Meanwhile, the ambience is distinctly homey — a bed-and-breakfast warmth can be felt throughout. Essential assistance is provided, too: the hotel has a restaurant, and offers airport and city transfers, room service, and massage treatments.

But more than the mesmerizing scenery and genuine promise of relaxation, staying in this destination hotel nurtures the artistic lifeblood of its community. Fundacion Pacita Batanes Nature Lodge supports the education of the Ivatan youth through projects initiated by The Jorge, Aurora, and Pacita Abad Memorial Foundation, Inc.

Although located only 15 minutes from Basco Airport in the city proper, the hotel is atop a hill that gives commanding views of the seaside. The rooms here feature distinct interior design and architecture. All air-conditioned with a private toilet and bath, they come in various configurations depending on how large your company is and what vantage point you like to look out over the Pacific Ocean, the West Philippine Sea, or the rolling hills of Batanes. All accommodations come inclusive of breakfast.
