This is the least swanky of El Nido Resorts' four Palawan properties, although you'll hardly be slumming it. The cottages, many of them over-water, are native style with thatched roofs. In the early morning you can kayak in Big Lagoon and Small Lagoon before the tourist hordes arrive. Pure bliss.
It's on a secluded cove with crystal-clear waters populated by a resident school of giant jacks (trevally). Prices include use of kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and other gear. Free scheduled boat transfers from El Nido (30 minutes)
