About Us

Kingfisher officially opened to the public in November of 2011. It is a simple, pet friendly destination located in a remote area called Caparispisan in the province of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. This place is the perfect hideaway if you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation by the sea. Here, we value your privacy while maintaining an atmosphere of warmth and camaraderie among guests.

It started off with nipa huts and has grown to include a wide variety of rooms ranging from cabanas, casitas, superior rooms, beach huts, and our premiere suite. Our main market are mostly Europeans, Australians, Americans, and expats from HongKong, Singapore, and Manila. We have recently started having guests from the province of Ilocos and balik-bayan tourists (Filipino returnees). The kitchen offers a wide variety of cuisine suited for both local and international palates and serving size is quite hefty so please do share with friends.

Outdoor activities offered by the resort include kite boarding, windsurfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, volleyball, and other recreational sports for an active lifestyle. The shoreline is a mix of fine, white sand and corals while the beach has a stretch of over 200 meters of flat, shallow waters with sea grass, sand, corals, rocks and a variety of marine life. There is no undercurrent in the flat water area hence it is perfectly safe for kids and non-swimmers.
