Made with nipa and bamboo, bahay kubos have provided homes for indigenous groups in the country for hundreds of years, and have become an icon in Filipino culture. It seems that the appreciation for the classic Filipino home is growing even in the accommodation industry, just like in Casa Carlita, a resort in Lipa City.
