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

Top notch all the way!

Vallejo, California

Palawan is already such a magical place and Lagen Island only serves to enhance that reputation even more! From the time we stepped off the boat and greeted by GM Jen and her staff.....to the special seafood dish prepared by Chef Carlos.....to the attention to detail of John Sanders Agbayani of F&B....the service is top notch! The facilities of the resort are modern and well kept. Special mention to our tour guide, Mr. "Lover" who is an expert in taking the best photos! This place is simply unforgettable!!!

Located near to the spa, the indoor library is the perfect place to get lost in a good book or play some board games.
