From USD 800


Villa Halcyon is a haven of tranquility nestled amongst the coconut palms with commanding views of Puerto Galera Bay Philippines, officially designated as one of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World, by the Paris-based Les Plus Belles Baies du Monde, because of its surpassing beauty. Villa Halcyon offers 6 beautifully appointed guest rooms, each featuring a different theme. The main house features two en-suite rooms and an en-suite loft area. The Cabaña, located 15 meters from the Main House holds three guest rooms. Puerto Galera is the fabled Port of the Galleons which lies directly along the old Manila/Acapulco trade route and this small sheltered bay is where Spanish galleons used to take refuge from approaching typhoons before venturing across the Pacific Ocean. From sunrise to sunset, in brilliant sunshine and vivid colours, watch the mood of this lovely bay change from azure to turquoise, to aquamarine, to deep sapphire blue, to gold, orange and red; and if you’re fortunate enough to see a moonrise send shimmering silver images across the water, you will enjoy one of the most romantic experiences of your life!

Living Area

Villa Halcyon is designed to provide a tranquil retreat from life’s storms in a tropical paradise setting. Although only 2 kilometers away from the town of Puerto Galera, it is a private property accessible only by boat or helicopter. Halcyon means kingfisher in ancient Greek and the quiet days spent brooding their eggs led to the English expression “Halcyon Days”. Beautiful, darting kingfishers nest in our nearby mangrove forest and provide occasional flashes of their wonderful colours. The main house is a large Thai-style thatched building with elegant curving gables, mostly without walls. There is a living room, a dining room, a bar, a kitchen and an Al Fresco dining area with an adjoining flower and vegetable garden. Below the living and dining rooms are the Filipino and Chinese guest rooms, respectively, while a kids/teens loft lies above the dining room. The upper level also contains an office. A short distance from the main house, the Cabana contains 3 other bedrooms sharing a common bathroom.

Outdoor Area

The multi-purpose pier has an octagon helipad, a sunken dining table for BBQ’s under the stars, sunbathing lounges, a pontoon for boats, a ladder for swimming and snorkelling in the beautiful coral gardens full of tropical fish directly in front. The pool area includes an infinity pool, a small beach, an open-air dining area, kitchen, BBQ, a Zen pond with cascade background, a small fitness centre and a boatshed for scuba/snorkelling/boating/beach equipment.


A team of 150+ staff, including an estate manager, chefs, cooks, butlers, housekeepers, maintenance engineers and security ensures the smooth running of The Layar Villa estate.


Options include a priced room service menu of international and Indonesian meals; private barbecues and other specially ordered meals can be cooked at the villa. Or dine in style at Settimo Cielo, our chic Italian restaurant perched at the front of the villa estate.
