Inspired by the traditional Ivatan home made of local stone, Fundacion Pacita, accommodation in Batanes combines organic design and interiors with contemporary comforts. Narra flooring, wooden furnishings, and artworks by well-known Filipino artists as well as up-and-coming young Ivatan talents give each room and suite a unique yet welcoming atmosphere. The highlight of each lodging, however, is the breathtaking view of the vast sky with the Pacific Ocean, the West Philippine Sea or the province’s famous idyllic hills below it. No views are alike, since the guestrooms come in various configurations and are located in different parts in and around the main hotel building.
All rooms have:
- Private toilet and bath
- Hot and cold water
Facilities and services at Fundacion Pacita:
- Airport and city transfers
- Restaurant – Cafe du Tukon
- Room service
- Massage service
The Hotel opted not to provide TV & Wi-Fi in the rooms for guests to fully enjoy the serenity of the place and the excellent view from their verandas as part of their genuine Batanes experience.
Environment and nature is central to Ivatan living. Moon phases and wind directions dictate a few farming and fishing rituals and beliefs. As such, the rooms in Fundacion Pacita were named after the local terms for different wind direction.
