  • For a hideaway in paradise, one should go to Kingfisher Resort in Pagudpud.

    Morning view

    Kingfisher looks more of a sanctuary rather than an ordinary hotel. Tucked in a remote place, almost half-an-hour away from town lies Kingfisher, which is undoubtedly a Pagudpud paradise.

    Kite center

    With its location away from the town, you’d know that it is not your usual resort where you can enjoy a loud and merry celebration with your friends, as Kingfisher seeks to be a serene paradise. It has high regard for peace and quiet, ideal for tourists who would love to have some quiet relaxation time away from the hustle and bustle of the metro. Kingfisher houses 6 room types, all of which having its own attractive architectural style that will remind you of a traditional look on the outside but with a modern feel on the inside. Their Premier suite, which their most expensive on the list, is their best accommodation as it has its own Satellite TV with original DVDs you can use, kitchenette, private toilet and shower, Jacuzzi, and a 4×8 feet pool. It’s the nearest accommodation to the beach as well, where you can enjoy a magnificent view of the sea while relaxing on your day bed and lounge area at the front porch of the suite.

    Inside their rooms

    The place very much feels like a sanctuary, a place where you can just be with nature. Kingfisher is very popular among Europeans especially those who would like to try out some adventure in the place. The resort is also known to be the only resort in Asia accredited by the European Tour. Kingfisher is known for providing various activities such as sightseeing, motorbike rental, indoor games such as Foosball and Xbox Kinect, volleyball, and board games. But what they are most known for is their water sports including Kayaking, snorkeling, Kite boarding/ Kite surfing, Windsurfing, and Stand up paddle boarding. They have their own Kite center where guests can rent gears. The reason why they have they have these kinds of activities is that the owner is a kite connoisseur as well.


    The resort is also very pet-friendly as they have a bunch of dogs who are very accommodating to guests as well. You’d see them roaming around greeting guests which will make you not want to leave the place anymore as all their staff and pets are so heartwarmingly nice.

    They also have their own in-house restaurant which serves sumptuous seafood dishes you’d surely want to try. It’s best to try their special dish of the day especially if you’re a food loving guests because they have servings which are still very affordable yet very tasty. Sometimes, they even have an open-kitchen where guests can freely go inside in case they want to help out. If you wish to have some barbecue by the beach, they have occasional beach=appropriate grilles, just ask their staff for assistance.

    Since it’s in a remote location, it’s better to contact the hotel for directions especially for those using private vehicles. By plane, you can land in Laoag International Airport that is 2 hours away from Kingfisher. You can also ride by bus to Pagudpud for P700 to P800. You can be dropped off the highway in Mawini or at the Pagudpud Town Proper, where you can rent a tricycle going to Kingfisher for P300.

    If you’d love a place that resembles more like a paradise, choose Kingfisher to see the best in Pagudpud!
