Uyami’s Green View Lodge in Banaue: Every Traveler’s Go-To Downtown Stay
Banaue is blessed with a lot of greens from the majestic amphitheater-like rice terraces. Luckily, we know one place that has a perfect view—which will also give you a comfortable stay.
Uyami’s Green View Lodge is one of Banaue’s pioneer lodges established over 30 years ago. The 7-story building located in downtown Banaue is a go-to lodge for most foreign travelers, especially Europeans.
The origin for its name ‘Green View’ came from the overlooking view of the green rice terraces that you can see from Uyami’s.

There are 22 rooms available with both private rooms (Php 900 to Php 2,000) and common rooms (Php 250 per head). Each private room is equipped with a hot and cold shower and can accommodate 2 to 6 persons. Meanwhile, the common rooms come with a shared bathroom and are ideal for those who opt for a cheaper stay.

Uyami’s is also known to serve some of the best foods in Banaue. One crowd-favorite is the Green View Express (Php 140), which is a pork and pepper dish that has a spicy yet savory kick.

There’s also the Chinese Chicken (P135), which is comprised of pineapples for a sweet finish but it will remind you more of chicken adobo.

Another best seller is the Chicken Tinola (P135), a chicken soup with chayote and green leafy vegetables grown in Banaue.

The restaurant also accepts special meal requests, such as the Banaue classic pinikpikan or battered chicken dish. Just make sure to tell the staff ahead of time to make sure they can accommodate you.
