Sillon Floating Bamboo House is a cottage-type bamboo drifting just a few kilometers from the shore of Sillon, Bantayan. This is the best way to experience Bantayan in a different setting with views of the tropical island and the various thriving flora on one side and a view of the expansive blue on the other.

This floating bamboo structure isn’t just limited to the views of the two but it also has different wonders waiting underneath its make-shift pool where everybody can take a dive into the turquoise waters and greet the friendly fishes of the island. With three times the thrill and beauty, it’s no wonder that this humble floating bamboo structure will attract both locals and tourists from many places to witness the scenic views.

The floating bamboo house is the best place to spend an exclusive getaway with loved ones due to the relaxing atmosphere, the unique tropical experience and the three-faced beauty of Bantayan which is hard to find. When the sun is at its peak, everybody can enjoy a festive salu-salo over the sea.

Privacy is also guaranteed because they only accept reservations. In this way, groups won’t be disturbed by other strangers and everybody will be able to spend a comfortable time together.
