The Pangulasian Island is El Nido Resorts’ Eco-Luxury island resort in Bacuit Bay, El Nido, and it has been named the Best Beach or Coastal Hotel in the world by the Boutique Hotel Awards.
The resort is located right on the beach with the backdrop of a tropical forest, and is known as “Island of the Sun” thanks to its gorgeous views of both the sunrise and the sunset.
The resort offers 42 deluxe accommodations, all of which are designed with an eco-friendly intention in mind. Each villa can accommodate three people and is built in contemporary Filipino architecture.
Some of the villas are located right on the beach, while others are set high in the trees. There is one block of four villas that is set in a private cove when extreme privacy is the intention.
The hotel offers a world-class spa, options for dining on the beach, and private sunset cruises.
The island can be reached by an hour flight from Manila, as well as a 30 to 45-minute boat ride from the Lio airport in El Nido. It is also possible to reach the island by land from Puerto Princesa City, which takes about six hours.
