Standing at a level of its own, Pangulasian Island Resort brings you as close as possible to the Maldivian luxury experience, for only a fraction of the cost. Set on its own incredibly beautiful island, this 5-star property is bordered by 750 meters of fine white sands on one side and a lush tropical jungle on the other. This paradise is just perfect for lovers. The romantic ambiance all throughout the resort exudes seclusion and privacy like no other.

Also called “the island of the sun”, guests of Pangulasian can enjoy not only spectacular views of the sunsets but also that most coveted wonderful sunrise. Designed with a perfect balance between contemporary Filipino architecture and green interiors, the resort takes inspiration from its natural beauty with clear focus on function, comfort and sustainability. Pangulasian Island Resort currently hosts 42 deluxe villas, each with a balcony to take advantage of the expansive views of both the forest and the turquoise blue waters of the bay.

In terms of luxury, Pangulasian is the pearl of El Nido Resorts. It offers the kind of exclusive experience like no other private island resort in Palawan. Its villas have their own private pools and instead of villas on stilts over the water, pangulasian has villas on stilts perched on a cliff. Not even Lagen or Miniloc can compare to the quality of amenities found in here. So, if your budget is flexible and you are after the finer things in life – Pangalusian is the best choice out there.
[expert_review] Pangulasian Island is a multi-awarded boutique island resort. It has been recognized by numerous travel organizations as one of the Top Resorts in Asia and one of CNT’s Gold List of Favorite Beach Resorts in the World for 2017. This resort is always the top choice when it comes to online travel surveys. Such awards are not only given for their luxurious amenities and impeccable service but also for their relentless efforts in the conservation and protection of nature.

The waters around the island are part of a protected site which means you are not only staying in one of the most luxurious eco-friendly resort, you also get to explore a marine sanctuary right at your doorstep. It is a diver’s paradise. Just a few meters off the shoreline, divers can feast their eyes on a group of black-tip sharks and sting rays. The corals are very healthy and various fish species can easily be spotted. There are more than 20 dive sites close to the island where divers can have access to. There are also some reefs dedicated to snorkeling.

Just like the other El Nido Resorts, Pangulasian offers complimentary island hopping excursions and fun activities. Guests are ushered to private boats and they visit El Nido’s hotspots like the Big and Small Lagoon, Snake Island, Matinloc Island and even the other sister resorts. Guests of Pangulasian can visit Miniloc and Lagen Islands as well as have access to the beach clubhouse in Entalula Island. However, Miniloc and Lagen Island guests cannot visit Pangulasian. That is how exclusive the resort really is.

Other activities that are included in the room rate are: kayaking, trekking into the jungle, paddle boarding, use of other non-motorized equipment and breakfast. Diving, spa, motorized water equipment rental are all charged separately.

Food and drinks are also not included in the room rate. Guests can choose to pay separately for the full-board meals (excluding alcoholic drinks) or pay for a la carte meals. You can either pay directly to the resort upon arrival or arrange it with us. There are 3 restaurants on site, 1 bar, a fitness center, business center with library, game room, souvenir shop, dive and water equipment center and an infinity pool.
