Tuka Lodge at Tao Farm

Beach Cove El Nido

We offer a place where you can appreciate a break from all the usual tourist offers. We attract those who appreciate our simple island lifestyle and those who enjoy social gathering of travelers. We cultivate the landscape to nurture all the senses.

 

Find luxury in open nature, disconnection and social interaction.
Tao Farm is a proud flagship of a Social Design project using tourism as a tool to create business with the community, education and training system, food production and sustainable architecture.

The Tuka lodges are simple bamboo sleeping hut, a unique architecture made from locally grown materials. These huts are designed with a sense of place, a feel of open nature and a luxury of simplicity.

All of our developments and building complies with the very strict conservation license from the Department of Environment. Toilets and showers are communal, with limited electricity, waste restriction and a clear sustainable development.

From El nido town an hour drive north to the coast of San Fernanado. Accessible by boat or walking trail to a secluded 700 meter long white beach lined with lush trees and palms, known to locals as Pangaraycayan.

Central part of the cove is where we culminate guest activities and our local workspace. We have the Kantina that serves as dining and bar, there is bakery wing, butcher and fermentation area. This is a busy trading post for local farmers delivering their produce. Tao Foundation Building houses the women association and their workshops. Here is where we offer massages, the organic oil, soap/shampoo lab and local craft shop. There is also a lecture space, gallery and open floor for sports or yoga activity.
One end of the cove serves as an expedition camp for our boat trips. Strategic mid stop for essential water supply, farm produce and our community project presentation.

The inland springs supply us with mineral water, good drinking water source and the lifeline to our gardens where we grow native vegetables that supply the kitchen of our boats and Kantina.. We welcome all guests to explore our food production and innovative conservation solution from our farm team.
