I spent 5 days and 4 nights in Bahay Kalipay. Everything was perfect, the place is very peaceful. It was my first time doing yoga and the teachers are really open to beginners and take the time you need to explain the poses. I really appreciated this individual coaching. The accommodation is cute, the beds confortable and the staff is so nice and professional.
I was a bit worried about the vegan raw food but it’s very tasty, various, and the quality of the ingredients is very good.
I met people from all over the world and I really enjoyed spending time together.
Thank you Bahay Kalipay !!!!!

I am not a vegan but I liked all the food that I had. Great yoga instructor. Added bonus was the spiritual experience that helped clear some of the blocks I had. Amazing journey I had at bahaykalipay. I felt so much love in this retreat, specially Carien thank you for shining light on me. To have a spiritual experience one needs to be open. But again even if you don't want a spiritual experience, it was somehow a detox that my body was craving for, a total relaxation I had for mind and body.

"Very friendly staff and nice experience. "
I liked how kind and friendly the people were, staffs were so smiley and caring. I am grateful for their effort to provide me nice healthy food and for my convenience. They helped me anytime I asked for.
I like the programme too, different type of yoga(I'm beginner), and innder dance, travel to beach was amazing. I like how they didn't push me to do this or that, so I decided not to join the silent fasting day, and I had some hot cooked food out in the mall. Love the dog and cats there too. wish I could've be able to join at astrology reading time. Best thing about it is I can see how all the people from different part of the globe with different background have such a nice time.

"This place gave me peace! "
I loved the morning yoga sessions and the delicious food, which was provided during the whole stay.

"Look into this more before booking"
The accommodation was nice, though all open with no covers on the windows so you get bitten a lot, it’s hot and then cold and then hot again. The morning yoga was great at 7am - this was what you’d expect when a retreat says yoga on it, see more comments below for details
The smoothies are all the same but taste nice, there are unlimited coconuts for you to drink and eat and a sarong is provided for you as a towel. Washing can be done on site and the vegan afternoon snack is always sweet and nice.

"Yoga - and so much more!"
I went to do yoga, and didn't take any notice of what else was being offered when I booked. I was so pleasantly surprised at the variety of activities on offer there. The teachers, and the staff, were all amazing, warm, caring, and approachable. The food was stunning to look at, delicious to taste, and obviously made with love. The location was wonderful. It was peaceful and calm, and I loved that everything was made from bamboo and other wood, and so many plants. While there was a full timetable available, I appreciated that there was no pressure to do anything you didn't want to do. I loved everything about the week I spent there, and left feeling amazing! I would recommend Bahay Kalipay to anyone!

I feel so amazing to be here, practice all the day follow the program and also by myself, eat healthy food and super tasty, lots of vitamins, the place is all green made me feel very chill and cool, there has a place to do sunbathe, and they have the handmade spray to avoid mosquitoes which saved my life during the stay.

"More wellness than yoga"
The food at Bahay Kalipay was amazing! Also our visit to Nagtabon beach was very nice and Alan was so much fun to be around with. We had some changes to our initial schedule because of volunteers getting sick and not feeling well but luckily we could then make some suggestions for the updated program. The inner dance sessions were definitely interesting and a new experience!

"An excellent little raw vegan bubble with like-minded people"
I loved the meditative sessions with Imana. And even though the current yoga teacher fell ill, the higher forces sent us Apple. She was such an amazing yoga trainer! The way she thought, everyone would be able to do yoga and go deeper and deeper. Just perfect! (Actually she was just a guest there, but because she's a teacher herself, she was asked to substitute). The food was amazing! They could've given us just salads 3 times a day, but they made such a big effort to make to food taste and look nice. It was a culinary experience every time!

"Home away from home "
The food was delicious, the staff was amazing, the teachers was caring and the volunteers was so friendly and helpful. Our hut was really nice, and the soaps we got in our welcome basket smelled so good.
The whole area is green and serene and makes it very easy to relax and unwind.
The yoga classes was really good and the inner dance was a unique experience. Jam night was really fun and so was the raw food demo. I would definitely come back here if I get the opportunity. They make you feel home.
Lots of love to all in BK.

"Full mind, body and soul experience"
The facilities are beautiful and surrounded by nature. Everything is so peaceful, relaxing and blissful. The staff is kind, friendly and goes above and beyond to make your stay pleasant. Well organized schedule allows a deeper inmersion in meditation and yoga (coconut fasting, detox, workshops, awareness movies) and there are plenty of tips for healthier, more conscious and meaningful life. I especially liked morning ayurvedic rituals and silent day. And all massages were truly relaxing.

"A family experience in a yoga retreat"
The instructors were both very patient in their approach as well as infornative. I felt very lucky to have such hands on experience! The food each day was amazing,i felt incredibly better holistically within a few days. The massages were incredible, and I felt comfortable enough to try a colon cleansing. Each day was something new i could dive into,or just take time to relax by the hammock. The excursion i chose,underground river, was really interesting and a great deal. I am incredibly grateful for my experience and will never forget thr beautiful people i met.

"Will be coming back"
The food, the location, the atmosphere, the people, the classes, THE LOVING ENERGY, everything. What's there not to like?? (Maybe the mosquitos, but you'll be fine once you spray on some of their home-made natural mosquito-repellent!)

The place is an amazing garden with traditional bamboo huts. Everything is so nice that you don't mind the simplicity of body care, it's like part of the experience. The staff was lovely and always ready to help. Food was delicious and I didn't miss anything. Perfect for a detox retreat.

"Un séjour magique"
Le centre est enchanteur, avec une végétation luxuriante et un aménagement apaisant, toute l'équipe est adorable, la nourriture délicieuse. J'ai un très bon appétit, j'avais peur d'avoir faim avec une alimentation exclusivement crudivore pendant presque une semaine mais au final ça s'est très bien passé et je suis enchantée de cette expérience. Je recommande chaleureusement le centre Bahay Kalipay !!
from Belgium, December 2017
Que dire de cet endroit tellement tout est parfait sauf parfois la proximité de la route. Mais c est un détail tellement s est bien.
La nourriture qui me faisait peur....est purement divine et donne envie de devenir vegan raw. MAGIQUE ET AU DELÀ DE CE QUE J ATTENDAIS.

"Rust in combinatie met zweterige joga !"
Geweldige leraren en super ster!! Eten is magnifiek lekker! Locatie is prima, rustig en lekker afgesloten van het dorp.
"The one week Bahay Kalipay yoga retreat was excellent."
The one week Bahay Kalipay yoga retreat was excellent. Very simple accommodation with great raw food meals, very friendly staff, good yoga instruction in the vinyasana flow and ashtanga traditions, with a variety of competent and caring instructors, plus additional programs, discussions and tours presented throughout the week. Overall it was a very enjoyable experience with compatible participants from all over the world interested in furthering their yoga and cleansing practice. Loved its simplicity and dedication to eco values. Would highly recommend it to those interested in the yogic path who are not seeking the high end resort alternative.
