Two Seasons Coron Island Resort and Spa embodies a perfect balance of elegance, comfort and nature. This 5-star property is 40 minutes boat ride away from the city and is located in the scenic Bulalacao Island in Coron, Palawan. Ideally suited for couples and honeymooners, the resort offers an both excitement and relaxation and maintains an idyllic atmosphere in a tropical paradise setting.
There are currently 42 bungalows spread across the entire area of lush tropical gardens with easy access to the beach. Each room is built with local materials complemented by modern designs. The high ceilings provide an airy feel to the spacious rooms and the natural materials add warmth to an otherwise modern Filipino-tropical design.
As the only real private island resort in Coron, Two Seasons take pride in their 100% sustainability. Water and power are both derived from the resort’s own energy facilities that harness natural power sources to maintain their eco-friendly operations without compromising guests’ comfort. Overall, the Two Seaons is the perfect choice for those who wish to experience the adventures of Coron but still stay at an all inclusive luxury resort.
When it comes to Filipino service quality, it is always excellent. It is inherent to Filipinos to be warm and cordial especially towards their guests. The staff of Two Seasons are not an exception. They exhibit all the welcoming qualities of a Filipino and as a result, you get the level of service that you expect from a 5 stars resort.
Not only is the entire island clean and well-maintained, the staff are also dedicated to ensure that nature is well-kept and preserved. This dedication is extended to their house reefs and other nearby natural treasures along with the wild animals and plants in the area. There is daily housekeeping and the pool is maintained on a daily basis as well.
The rooms are very spacious and each with a veranda to take in the beautiful views all around. The beds are comfortable and the room amenities are luxurious. Some rooms have direct beach access and others have their own garden and Jacuzzi. The mixture of local materials and modern design adds to the pleasant island vibe.
This is an island resort which means there is a private beach in the property. There is a 200-meter beach on both sides of the island and if that is not enough, there is also a sandbar connected to an islet. The 600 sqm adult and kiddie pool is very well-designed and strategically located in the resort. If you are staying in Coron and want a beach - this is one of the only good options.
If you are looking for seclusion and tranquility, then the location is perfect. However, tourist spots are relatively far from the property and the city is 40 minutes away on a boat. When the weather is bad, there can be some delays in transport to and from the island which may affect the overall comfort and travel experience of the guests.
Two Seasons Coron Island Resort and Spa is not an all-inclusive resort. The price per night is already too expensive and on top of that you have to pay for almost everything else on the property. Food, island-hopping excursions, additional bottle of water, some water equipment usage and use of other facilities like the kid’s club are not complimentary and all come with a hefty price tag. Still, we gave it a good score since it is by far the best and most luxurious resort in Coron, and one of only a few real 5 stars property there.
Snorkeling equipment, regular kayaks and paddle boards are free. If you don’t pay for a package then you have to pay for other water equipment usage such as catamarans, paddle boats, water ski, kiteboarding , banana boats and wake boards. The top-of-the-line HydroBob Submersible Scooters and transparent kayaks are also available at the resort.
There is a restaurant that serves a mixture of local and western dishes, as well as a bar with wide variety of drinks and snacks. The resort also feature a gym and fitness center, a library, game room, karaoke room, DVD library, business center with computer stations, pool table, kiddie play room, conference room, souvenir shop and a sports center. There is also a 600-sqm. swimming pool and 24 hour security and reception desk. The resort also offers different tours to the nearby tourist spots like the trip to the Twin Lagoons, Kayangan Lake, Culion historical tours, sports fishing and wreck diving tours.
The resort enjoys positive reviews online. In Booking.com the overall score is 8.4 with 107 reviews so far. In Agoda.com, 92 reviewers gave it an average score of 8.5 where 91% of them stated that they will happily recommend Two Seasons Island Resort to their friends and family members. Finally in TripAdvisor, there are 271 reviews and the total score is at 4.5 with 67% rating of excellent and only 1% who were not satisfied.
Most of the comments focused on how excellent the services were. Guests complimented the staff for going the extra mile. The facilities were also said to be in good condition and very classy. Guests find the rooms very comfortable, spacious and luxurious. The beach, the snorkeling spots, the dive sites and the views all around all made their stay very memorable and added to their overall pleasant experience.
Naturally, it is difficult to please everybody. Some guests were disappointed with the food quality and the lack of things to do on the island. But most negative comments actually focused on how pricey everything is. Most guests think that this property is not a good value for their money because the prices are incredibly high even for just an extra bottle of water ($3).
What do guests love about Two Seasons Coron Island Resort and Spa?
Some negative aspects that could affect your booking are:
Since their tours and premium activities are quite expensive, we usually advise our guests to book just 2-3 nights there, aimed mainly at relaxation. You can make use of the resort’s excellent facilities and stunning beaches and enjoy a secluded and luxurious environment. Then, spend an extra few days in a resort closer to town and book the same tours for almost half the price. If you want to maintain the same high standards, then the sister resort – the Two Seasons Coron Bayside would be an excellent choice.
