El Nido Resorts Lagen Island

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.

Amazingly Beautiful and Exceptional Service!

My girlfriend and I stayed 3 nights at the beautiful Lagen Island resort, during the slow season in September. We lucked out and had beautiful weather every day. The waters around the island are very pristine, very clear and amazing shades of turquoise when the sun is shining. We took advantage of the all inclusive package. The tours we went on were excellently guided. The meals were buffet style, and always had plenty of options and good variety over the course of three days. The hospitality of the staff was exceptional, with every member always making you feel welcome at the resort. Jen, the activities coordinator was amazing at working with us, always flexible with us and other guests as she helped manage our daily events. Sid at the front office was always pleasant and helpful with any requests during our stay. Melqui, who works the front desk at Apulit resort, also was wonderful helping us arrange our bookings and choosing one of the 4 amazing El Nido Resort properties. I would love to stay again at Lagen, or any of the other available El Nido Resorts again in the future. Thanks so much again to all the staff for exceptional service and hospitality!

Little piece of heaven

Wow. Never in my life came across that level of hospitality, AMAZING views, and great food! The resort is isolated from anything else so it's a great opportunity to clear the mind. They also offer tons of activities. We came for one night on our honeymoon and enjoyed every minute of it! Surely we'll visit again.

Swimming Pool

The swimming pool at Lagen Island sits in a prime position looking out to sea with spectacular views of the limestone rock formations. A spacious sun terrace with ample loungers and parasols provides the perfect spot to relax and soak up the sun.

Spa

Lagen Island Spa offers a range of pampering face and body treatments. We highly recommend theFilipino hilot massage.

Fitness Room

There is a small air-conditioned fitness room located on the upper level of the main building.

Library

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

Nature Trail

Lagen Island has its very own nature trail where you are likely to see macaques and hornbills. The trail passes through the forest and ends in a private cove. We recommend setting off either early morning or late afternoon to avoid the heat of the day.

With over 20 dive sites in the area, the PADI dive centre at Lagen Island offers a variety of courses. Night dives and adventure dives are also available.

Guided Eco Tours

A number of complimentary eco tours are available at the hotel allowing you to explore the natural beauty of this area. Popular tours include Cathedral Cave, Snake Island and the famous Big and Small Lagoons. A wide variety of native wildlife can usually be seen on these tours.
