Sehr freundliches und hilfsbereites Personal. Sehr gutes veganes Essen. Yoga Unterricht (Lehrer Dexter) war sehr gut.
My stay there was literally life changing. They had the great staffs, amazing food, raw food cunningly made into various delicious dishes, and good yoga. This place can give you an opportunity to really make changes in your life and reset yourself. I came out healthier and a tea-total vegetarian! I wasn't expecting that.
My journey unexpectedly led me to Bahay Kalipay and it will always be one of those moments in my life that I could pinpoint a shift. What started as a 7-day DNC stay, with original plans to continue to explore the Philippines, ended up being 10. I spent it with beautiful souls. Kim, Tadeya, Mathias, Vanessa, Gia, were just some of the staffs that made it such an amazing place. I spent it getting to know myself through meditation, yoga, inner dance, long conversations, cleansing my body via delicious raw meals, and being completely with myself. Go. Be open. Be free. You are worth the investment. I'm ever so grateful.

Bahay Kalipay is an amazing place to spend some time for a detox, yoga, and spiritual development or just relaxing and taking a break from everyday life. All the people working there are really friendly and helpful and make you feel comfortable and welcome. Raw food served there was the best I've ever tasted and made me feel really healthy and gave me a real boost of energy. The inner dance sessions are something not to be missed, if you give it chance it can give a new direction to your life. Bahay Kalipay is a perfect place for healing and taking steps towards your true identity.
