El Nido is touted as one of the most beautiful places in the world. So when my Ninang invited me to join her family for a trip there, I gave a resounding YES right away.
Getting there is a quick 1-hour plane ride via AirSwift.
Upon arriving at Lio Airport, you already get a glimpse of the island’s natural beauty.
You then take a 30-minute speedboat ride and arrive at Pangulasian Island Resort, El Nido Resorts’ Eco-Luxury island resort in Bacuit Bay, El Nido.
The resort is set fronting a pristine beach and against a backdrop of tropical forest.
It is known as “Island of the Sun” because of its breathtaking views of both the sunrise and the sunset.
As soon as we set foot at the resort, we were greeted by their hospitable staff with big smiles, warm face towels and an ice-cold fresh watermelon juice.
The white sand beach is 750 meters long, the water is clear, and the air is fresh.
Guests are treated to luxurious amenties and impeccable and personalized service. We were even given complimentary slippers and straw hats.
To get around the resort, you can either call for someone to pick you up on a golf cart or you can walk while enjoying the greenery.
The resort has a total of 42 deluxe accommodations built with contemporary Filipino and cutting edge “green” design. There are 8 Canopy Villas perched on stilts above the forest, 24 Beach Villas and 6 Pool Villlas close to the water.
We stayed at the Canopy Villa perched 15-18 meters from the ground. With a floor area of 65sqm., the villa features and amenities include Wi-Fi access, satellite TV, iPod dock, mini-bar, and coffee and tea-making facilities.
It also has a 15sqm private balcony.
There are several activities you can partake in the resort, like a private sunset cruise, romantic dinner by the beach, or treatments at the spa. We opted to just hang at the pool area.
Pangulasian is known as a honeymoon destination but it still is a great destination for family and friends.
Truly, I left my heart in El Nido. 🙂
