The capital of the Philippines. Mod cons available.
Remember the movie 'Beach' with Leonardo di Caprio? Apparently Alex Garland's book was originally inspired by the beauty of El Nido.
Endless white beaches, crystal clear waters and an underwater world, that will take your breath away. A destination that truly looks like paradise. The beauty of El Nido is hard to describe, you have to see the place with your own eyes.
The highlights of our stay are the island hopping tours for two days including a buffet lunch and a 6-day yoga retreat.
Aptly nicknamed “the city in a forest.” It’s been named the Philippines’ cleanest and greenest city.
Please be advised that we will be traveling for six hours on the van to reach El Nido from Puerto Princesa.
For your peace of mind, please consult your GP.
