Subdued elegance in a spectacular setting

With a truly magnificent setting, this private island resort is carved against a backdrop of striking limestone cliffs looking out across a tranquil lagoon. The emphasis here is all about nature, marine activities and above all else complete and utter relaxation. Days can be spent enjoying the variety of complimentary activities on offer including snorkelling, island hopping to the nearby beach clubs, kayaking on the lagoons or just simply relaxing by the pool. A small spa offers a variety of pampering treatments and little ones will be well looked after at the kids club. Meals can be taken at the clubhouse buffet restaurant, from the a la carte snack menu at the pool bar, or even at the restaurant of the nearby sister hotel on Miniloc Island. Guest rooms are spacious with recycled timber floors and furnishings, but the real highlight here are the overwater bungalows, ideal to really treat yourself.

  • Nature trails and extensive water activities
  • Breathtaking limestone cliffs
  • Committed to sustainable tourism
  • Over water bungalows

Beautiful resort

Vancouver, Canada

We enjoyed our stay in Lagen. If you can afford it, book it. The location is perfect. I can just put my snorkel gear and swim in their house reef. Lots of fish and corals to see. The current is a bit strong sometimes but once you’re in the water, you won’t leave. We booked a private boat for our tour which came out cheaper with 4 people. Diving is good too. The room is clean and relaxing (we got the water cottage). You can watch the fish from your balcony. I wake up early in the morning for a walk around the resort. Lots of birds, monkeys and monitor lizards. You can hike in the forest to get to second cove. You can relax in the hammock and snorkel there. Selection for breakfast buffet is not a lot but will do. A la carte menu is also not big but it’s understandable because you’re far from the mainland. Happy hour every 4-6 which we took advantage of. The staff are all friendly and helpful. I can’t praise them enough. They are all excellent with what they do. All their amenities are well maintained like snorkeling and diving gears. I highly recommend the resort and will go back for sure.

Most beautiful resort in El Nido

Johannesburg, South Africa

We stayed at Lagen in November for my birthday. It is really one of the most beautiful resorts I have been too. As soon as you arrive on the island you are pampered by the Lagen staff. We enjoyed our stay so much that we booked an extra night. Everything about staying at Lagen is personalized with guests being spoilt and treated with such warm hospitality. Our guide for the first day Lover was especially entertaining, providing us with details about the resort, the Php people and culture and the bio diversity around the islands. Hoven was another guide who was was really such a star as he took us on our own private half day tour to the nearby islands, he even offered to take photographs which came out amazing. Dave who worked at the bar found out I was pregnant and treated me to delicious smoothies everyday. Jen the manager was also so warm and loving ensuring all our needs were taken care off. I loved the fact that you could go to the private beaches around Lagen and enjoy the day snorkeling with the entire beach to yourself and lunch would arrive by speedboat as you can plan this with the restaurant. There is an abundance of nature and bio diversity around and the hotel ensures they take care of the environment around and are eco friendly, sustainability is a high priority. Many of the tours are offered free of charge by the hotel unless you would like to book a private tour which I highly recommend. The water cottages are very peaceful and luxurious ..food at the restaurant also great and lots to do in the resort. The resort is also not to far from the mainland which can be reached by speedboat.
