Bobby Dekeyser isn’t your average hotel owner. The former goalkeeper for Bayern Munich and founder of global furniture company Dedon now raises Alpacas in Ibiza. He and his London-based daughter Carolin created Nay Palad Hideaway, a model of sustainable luxury that is coupled with original and exciting features at every turn.

On the southeastern tip of the island of Siargao in the Philippines, Nay Palad sits between a white sand beach on the Pacific Ocean and an ancient mangrove forest. The hotel has undergone a complete redesign and rebuild following more than 85 per cent of the island being destroyed in 2021 from typhoon Odette.

Enlisting the talents of celebrated, award-winning designer and friend, Daniel Pouzet – renowned for his incredible art installation structures – the team have created a socially-conscious home away from home. Taking the opportunity to rethink the design, the majority of the furnishings were built on-site by Philippine artisans previously employed for Dedon, ensuring every item on island is completely unique.

With thoughtfully designed nooks and crannies the island over, guests can wile away the day on a hidden rooftop lounge bed accessible by ladder, soak up the soaring ocean views from the U-shaped communal sofa or open-air nests hanging from palm trees. With a staff of almost 100 per cent Filipino; ensuring local traditions and timeless beauty combine with the highest contemporary standards of comfort, environmental and social responsibility.

In line with this philosophy, Nay Palad offers all-inclusive rates; an approach that allows every guest experience to be different, with their time on the island carefully curated and highly personalised throughout, encouraging guests to tune into their own rhythm, eat when and where they want and fully indulge in island living.

The menu is designed daily to centre around freshly caught and grown produce, room amenities and products are naturally sourced and created, and at the heart of the resort, is an unfaltering commitment to supporting the local community through a number of programmes and initiatives both on and off island.
