The best place to stay in Puerto Princesa, Palawan: Princesa Garden Island Resort & Spa!

If there are words that would describe Princesa Garden Island Resort & Spa, I would definitely quote it as "Paradise on Earth." Every corner of the resort is very relaxing and pleasing to the eyes. Honestly, it has been the best resort that I have ever been to so far!

The resort is accessibly situated at Brgy. Bancao Bancao, Puerto Princesa around 5 minutes from Puerto Princesa International airport with no fuss and tiring feeling during the trip. Upon our arrival, we had our breakfast at Rice restaurant. This is one of the things that I have enjoyed in the hotel because lo and behold, they have almost everything to offer with their roughly around 50-80 food choices. My faves are their in-house strawberry yogurt, freshly cooked noodles, ham & cheese omelette.

On our first day, we decided to just enjoy the room, the pool and roam around the resort. We got the One Bedroom Elite Ocean View Suite which is so spacious for a party of two. The amazing part of it? It has an access to their pool and has its own Jacuzzi with a really nice view!

We had our early dinner at Tomato & Basil. The restaurant is known for their pizzas that cooked in Pugon Oven! The wood-burning "pugon" oven provides the food with a cooking and above all with a wholesome flavor that cannot be achieved with other types of cooking.


As from their tagline "Escape completely" really lives up with my experiences with the resort since they have so many activities. Our second day had been a very exciting one since we were able to go to their Sand bar! The walkway going to the Sand bar is an experience itself. The view very is mesmerizing and you will be able to see some plane landing in the airport. (Some other resort activities and facilities are as follows: Gym, Billiards, Darts, Soccer Table, Seaside Volleyball, and Jumbo Chess)

We were able to visit the infamous Water Villas. These rooms are the high end rooms that are perfect for honeymooners - it has one king size bed over looking with unobstructed view of the sea, outside Jacuzzi and hammock.

At night, we tried their Hilot Spa. You'll feel the luxurious vibe with their services in their spa because of the ambiance and the treatment itself! We got knocked out during the session and felt so rejuvenated when the session was done.

We tried our best to do the kayaking and stand up paddle early morning of our last day. Again, the view just took our breath away. It was such a paradise! You'll have a view of the mangroves and on the other side, a clear blue skies kissing the ocean.

We got a little taste of Thailand in Princesa Garden Island Resort & Spa's very own Golden Elephant. This is one of the restaurants with best views that I've ever been to. Their Pad Thai is definitely a must try!

The 3 day experience in Princesa Garden Island Resort and Spa feels like just a dream. A good place like this should be showcased to everyone. The experience wouldn't be complete without their very accommodating staff who genuinely welcomed us at their resort. If you're looking for the best place in Puerto Princesa, I'd definitely recommend this one. It's worth every peso and would exceed your expectation!



  1. Really some amazing photos! Portable versions of jacuzzi hot tubs are more popular because of the lower overall cost and easier installation process.

  2. Make sure when renovating that your walk-in shower is large enough to accommodate a wheelchair or shower chair. Installing a built-in seat is also a good idea for those who want the option of sitting while showering. https://www.parishbathrooms.co.uk

  3. Help athletes prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts (sports massage) 출장안마 프리
