The space
This Tent: Max 4 Guests.
Standard occupancy 2 guests with booking. Only 2 more guests can be added.
No more Extra Guests possible.

This is the Triangle tent with two queen sized beds and an en-suite CR. Has a whole side that faces the lake with fab views from inside.

Enjoy a beautiful serene little private island 2.5 hrs away from Manila !! Stay in a Geodesic Dome tent with a breathtaking view of sunrises over the lake. You will also find the most beautiful kaleidoscopic sunsets and star lit skies.

If you are booking for a single day, then it is memories, photos and a laid back relaxing short break. If you stay for two days, it will mean a TOTAL RESET - so that you are charged up fully to meet the world again on YOUR terms.
For people that wish to spend some time alone, we would advise to book on a weekday where you can maybe have the whole place to yourself. The weekday rates are lower too !

(*We are NOT suitable for city slickers :) but maybe this will change your mind about simple living. )

Points to Note:

Cancellation : Please read our cancellation policy here on AirBnB

Rescheduling : We do not offer rescheduling of dates by default and any requests will be handled on a case to case basis.
Please note that since we ourselves are in no control of the pandemic or the decisions taken to control it, we can only offer a maximum of one reschedule due to any Travel Restrictions- new date should be within one month of original booking date.

Food : We do not allow food to be brought in.

** Lunch, Dinner and Drinks are available from the island's kitchen and bar - they have to be ordered from a menu that you can choose from a full day before you arrive. Meals are very reasonably priced since our intention is not to break your bank but keep temptation out of the way for critters.
(Staff retires at 8 PM - requests for extension should be made in advance and should be reasonable. )
Kindly note that though our staff will always try to accommodate last minute requests, they will still need to kayak to mainland for any supplies and this may not always be possible. Any requests should ideally be made in advance

Celebration : Please let us know if you need a Bonfire , Celebration Set up

Electricity: Please note that like all the islands in Lake Lumot, our island and home are OFFGRID. We have a generator that can be powered up for requests from 6pm to 10pm, we have solar powered lights both inside the living spaces and around the pathways.

** It may be hot inside the dome on a summer's day (well, despite all it's magnificence, the Dome is still a fab tent) but Lumot is cooler than average and nights tend be cool enough for you to need a blanket (and 'cold' after summer).

*** Kindly note that the Dome Tents are not made with sound resistant material. Please be naughty quietly in consideration of other guests on the property.
We cannot allow parties/being noisy beyond 9 PM until day break in the areas that have guest accommodation and nearby.


What to do on the island:

We are perfect to just unwind.

During the day, our guests (and my family) love to splash in the lake and relax under the trees where the breeze is lovely. We have Kayaks, body boards ,life vests, fishing rods , books which you can use for free. (*to be shared with other guests)

Evenings, are generally well spent relaxing by the lakeside in camping chairs watching the sunset with a bottle of wine and spending time with each other. Come night fall, we can arrange a bonfire so that you can get warm and mellow.

Pet Policy:

- Pets are NOT allowed on 'Weekends and Holidays'. . If you wish to bring your pet along during the weekdays, please let us know much in advance. This notice is required and will be pending decision. There will be additional charges for cleaning

Where you’ll be

Cavinti, Calabarzon, Philippines

Lake Lumot is a pristine freshwater lake on the top of mountains (exact contradiction to what the name says :) )
The people in Lumot are the best sort of people we have known and the small town is ,what essentially is, the true Pinoy Heart.
