Birdland Beach Club is one of a kind. If I had enough money, I would’ve booked a whole week and maybe even more. From the moment I saw the Birdland sign, I’ve fallen in love with how laid back the place is. Almost everything is either made of wood or bamboo.

As we entered the resort, the owner, Michael greeted us and asked to see our reservation. I searched my phone for the confirmation email and gave it to him.

After confirming our booking, he asked the staff to prepare the Beach Front hut. Everyone is so friendly. Someone gave us free welcome drinks and cold towels to help us cool down. I must admit. It was a very hot day.

We booked the accommodation that’s nearest to the beach – a hut that was built right on the beach overlooking the waters. I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to wake up to the sound of the waves beneath me and get a front seat view of the ocean.

Birdland Beach Club

Birdland Beach Club is what I would’ve wanted my resort to look like if I ever built one. However, I don’t think I would be able to pull off something this beautiful and majestic. Kudos to Michael for creating a paradise like this one.

Despite not having a wide beach like the nearby beach, Patar, the overall design of the place is one of a kind, and that’s what makes the resort worth it.

Around the place were birdhouses, three to four stories high huts, corals, hammocks, goats, and a fantastic view of the sea. Our hut has its own electric socket, hammock, and fan.

That night, I’ve never slept so soundly. The place just makes you forget where you are. The sea waves will lull you to sleep, and the singing birds will wake you up to the most beautiful scenery.

Aside from the Beach Front hut, you can also book a typical Bamboo House, Bolifugao Tower, Cabana or Room. They often give discounts for bookings on their website. When you book, don’t be like me and reserve at least two nights. I promise you won’t regret it.

Birdland Beach Club has a menu full of flavors from all over the world, and if you have a cuisine in mind, you can ask them to cook it for you. Michael’s wife, Joanna is a chef.

I have to warn you though, the food here can be expensive so be prepared. You’ll want to try all of their dishes! With me and my boyfriend’s appetite, one food serving was not enough to satiate us.
