Kayak Inn, Tibiao, Antique
One word: Tranquility. Located in a town called Tibiao in Antique, Kayak Inn is a place where you can relax and take a break from the crowded beaches of Boracay, and get away from everything since you will hardly get a phone signal while you're in the area. Great place to do soul searching.
How to go:
The town of Tibiao is roughly 2 hours away from Caticlan, Aklan. You can take Ceres Buses bound to Iloilo via San Jose which will only cost you around 100 - 150 pesos one way. Inform the driver to drop you off at Barangay Importante in Tibiao. Once there, take a habal-habal ride going to Kayak Inn which will cost you 70 pesos one way. You will also have to pay 50 pesos for the Environmental Fee. Don't forget to ask for the receipt because you will need it if you decide to go to the waterfalls near the area.
Tip: make sure that you have enough cash because there are no ATMs near the area. The closest ATM in located in Culasi, a town before Tibiao if you're coming from Caticlan.
When we arrived, we were greeted with super friendly staff who are also locals in the area. They gave us a very spacious Kubo which I think is good for up to 8 people. The Kubo is surprisingly very clean! The bathroom is awesome, complete with Hot and Cold Shower. There is also a spacious Veranda, perfect for a big group. They only charged us 200/head per night but the price may go up during peak season.
You have the option to take Kayak lessons, visit the Bugtong Bato Falls which is 30 minutes away from the area, and my favorite, take a Kawa Hot Bath. You can rent each Kawa for 200 pesos which is good for 3 hours. While being cooked in the Kawa (kiddin), you just have to relax and enjoy the view while taking selfies. Enjoy nature at its best!
One thing I won't forget about staying here is the people. They are very accomodating and they will treat you like a family. They even gave free rice for dinner!
I definitley recommend this place and I'm looking forward on my next visit.

We did the kawa hot bath, which was a really nice experience. The place is quite remote though, as in no cel signal, and you'll have to go through unpaved roads to get here. If you're planning to stay through the night (which might be the best option if you don't have a ride back to the main road), know that the inn does not have food or water for sale so BYOB. Oh, and the aswangs were probably in the form of the gigantic mosquitoes all around. It is inside the forest after all.
