Is Doane Rest open for guests during COVID-19?
Yes, we are open!
In order to visit, you will need to register with the city of Baguio through their VISITA app. You will need to create an account for each member in your party, along with registering your trip for each one of them.
VISITA (click here, link will open new tab to external site)
- On VISITA, we are listed as “ABWE Doane Rest” under accommodation options.
- Each person in your party over the age of 18 will need to take either a RT-PCR test or Rapid Antigen test. These can be done before you arrive (within 72 hours), or the Rapid Antigen test can be done at the Baguio triage for P350-P500 per person.
- Children DO NOT need to take any of these tests (unless they are exhibiting symptoms of being sick). For children, you only need to create a VISITA account and register for them.
We hope that this entire process will soon be simplified. As a consolation, check out our food page where you can see all of the options that deliver cooked meals and ingredients to Doane Rest!

What are some general COVID-19 guidelines for now?
Do you have equipment to keep us safe at Doane Rest?
Yes, we do. At our gate, we have a footbath, alcohol dispenser, thermal thermometer, and logbook. Upon entry, these items must be used to disinfect and log entry.
At your cottage, you will find an alcohol dispenser by the front door.
Inside, you will find extra disposable masks for each individual in your party, along with Lysol to disinfect items during your stay.
After each guest, we also disinfect all surfaces in our cottages, along with washing all linens and hanging things out in the sun or placing them in the dryer for a few hours. According to studies, COVID-19 doesn’t like sunshine or heat for extended periods of time. We are trying our best to make sure things are clean and safe for you, while also not giving you cancer in the process by using all kinds of crazy chemicals.
Our cottages will be fogged after each guest. Fogging is done at least 2 hours before other guests are allowed to occupy the same cottage in order for things to air out completely.
