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

Simply Paradise!

Boston, Massachusetts

My second stay in an Ayala Resort. We stayed at El Nido Matinloc last year, and many of the activities/excursions were similar. This review is mainly to discuss the Lagen Island resort itself. Aesthetically, it's a couple of notches above Matinloc in terms of pampering. The rooms were much nicer, the in-room patio was a welcome relief, the common areas were awesome, and the pool was great (missing at Matinloc, but they recently added one). Similar to last year, the staff was superb. Very attentive and wanting to make sure your stay is great. This goes for everyone from the front desk, restaurant staff, manager, and pool staff. The one negative is that I didn't think the food was as good as Matinloc. There were a lot of hit/misses. However, the staff was receptive to our feedback and even gave offered to treat us to a beach front dinner with a special menu (which was excellent). I'd definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing and luxurious getaway.

Best Honeymoon Ever!

Metuchen, New Jersey

We stayed her for our honeymoon 4 days 3 nights from March 13-16. Not once did it rain as this is their dry season. We were able to stay at the water cottage #109 as many people requested and boy was it worth. The view from the water cottage #109 is amazing and it is a bit of a walk but is worth all the privacy. The water can get intermittently cold but not unbearable. I was able to suprise my wife with the private dinner at the sandbar and it was amazing! Funny story, we told our server Lio to give the regards to the chef and he calmly stated "I am the chef!" haha. They had an event and the chef that was suppose to be there had to attend to the event so our server double as our chef preparing the private dinner and it was a hit! My wife was so suprised and the ambience of the candle lights on the sand with the sound of the ocean was amazing. They even had background romantic music playing it was perfect. I wanted to make sure that the private dinner was kept a secret because my wife is very smart and the whole resort staff did a great job. In fact, later on I found out that they wanted to approach me to ask about drinks for the dinner but they waited until my wife was out of sight to make sure that they didn't spoil the suprise. The hiking was a good excursion though we didnt see many monkeys. We enjoyed the paddle boarding and happy hour at the beach bar. It literally felt like paradise. But if you want to suprise your significant other and splurge in the luxuries of Palawan go for Lagen!
