Princesa Garden Island Resort And Spa: A Getaway Like No Other

Palawan is one of the Best Islands in the World and if you are looking for a place to stay in Puerto Princesa, look no further.

Located near Puerto Princesa Airport, Princesa Garden Island Resort is the getaway you’ve been dreaming of.

My grandparents are originally from Puerto Princesa and I’ve been to most resorts in the area. I’ve only heard of incredible things about Princesa Garden and it felt good to finally see it in the flesh.

As soon as we entered the resort; we were greeted with huge smiles, kulintang performances, and delicious refreshments.

The Resort

The property is huge and they have golf carts to bring you to your rooms from the reception. The whole property is covered with coconut and palm trees that truly give off a tropical vibe all throughout.

Their pool is one of the biggest I’ve seen. One side looks out at the ocean while the other side goes into the kiddie area. The pool has some rooms around it with direct access to the pool and there are some parts that are private for the pool villa guests.

They also have a jacuzzi and, of course, a beach!

Though the resort is directly in front of the beach, you will have to walk for at least 5 minutes to get to the sandbar.

This is the ideal place to swim at the resort as the water is crystal clear. You can ask the reception when the best time is to visit the sandbar. They have forecasts on when it will be high tide and low tide.

Aside from the beach and the pool, you can also visit their Art Center. Everyday, they have different activities that their guests can participate o=in.

While we were there, we were taught how to make birds out of palm leaves.

You can also check out their giant chess board.

Or you can play a Filipino traditional game: sungka.

The resort also offers city tours, Honda Bay Island hopping, scuba diving, ATV adventures, and many other things that can be enjoyed outside of the resort. If  you want to stay in, you can get a massage at their in-house spa where you can try their traditional hilot.
