The lure of waves and surfing brings most visitors to Siargao, but the accommodation scene may be what encourages many to stay a bit longer. The rooms on the Filipino island run the gamut from budget to luxury, but with an emphasis on rustic-chic glamping. Think sexy, spacious tents with proper beds and access to photogenic outdoor showers. Book your stay now with Culture Trip.

The Lampara is the kind of place that makes you reconsider your idea of budget accommodation. The dorms, cabins and even the glamping tents have a rustic-chic vibe that typically carries a much higher price tag. And, the location, right on the sand at the beach, also suggests a premium. Parties, bonfires and inviting communal areas provide a sense of community.

The rooms are spacious and contemporary, if somewhat plain, some with lots of natural light and a hammock. A bonus is the easy access to some of the best surfing spots on Siargao and General Luna, the urban centre of the island.

At the youthful, party end of the budget spectrum is Mad Monkey Hostel. The six-bed dorms are comfortable and contemporary, but you’ll probably be spending more of your time in and around the pool or at the tiki bar or taking advantage of activities such as karaoke nights, a Filipino family dinner or a party on a shipwreck. It’s all conveniently located, just a brief walk from one of the premier surfing beaches on Siargao.
