ANTIQUE | Au Naturel at Tibiao’s Zipline Inn | Lakad Pilipinas

Zipline Inn at Tibiao, Antique

Are we there yet? Our vehicle meandered through the dark and narrow roads of Barangay Tuno in the town of Tibiao, Antique. Coming from a very entertaining cultural show at the University of Antique, we were now on our way to our beds; the said beds, on a seemingly remote and unreachable part of Antique’s hilly area.

I have no idea what the place looked like until the next morning. All I know are there are trees and greeneries all around, lots of them.

Zipline Inn at Tibiao, AntiqueThere are actually no zipline at the Zipline Inn; it’s name coming from the nearby zipline in the area.

Its cottages are all kubo-inspired. The walls, floors and railings are made of bamboo and the roof is made of thatch. The room we slept in only has a single bed; but that didn’t pose a problem even if we were three in the group. Comfy cots were provided for on the floor.
Zipline Inn at Tibiao, AntiqueThe room has its own toilet and bath, but don’t expect too much. The amenities are very basic; it is a kubo after all. There’s no air-conditioning but it isn’t really a problem since the interior is quite cool due the bamboo-slatted walls and floors.
Zipline Inn at Tibiao, AntiqueAn open-aired dining area is located at the central part of Zipline Inn. So even if our rooms have their own verandas, we really didn’t hang out there that much. We really preferred the dining hut not only for meals, but also for drinking and tagay-story sessions (for nights when we can’t find any beer in the area).

I suggest that you buy cases of beer before checking in as the nearest sari-sari store is miles and miles away.
Zipline Inn at Tibiao, AntiqueEverything’s as simple as can be at the Zipline Inn; native huts, non-aircon rooms, utilitarian bathrooms, simple beds. But what really sets it apart from other places I’ve stayed at is its very natural atmosphere. I love how we’re so surrounded by nature. How their pathways are unpaved. How scenic the view is.

It somehow made me think of buying a property similar to this to retire in (browsing through Lamudi Philippines, in 4… 3... 2... 1…). But that is if ever I win in the lotto haha.
