Protected forests, majestic limestone cliffs and hidden lagoons surround the resorts, which are located in the El Nido-Taytay municipalities in northern Palawan. According to the resorts’ website, the waters of El Nido are home to 800 fish species, 400 coral species, as well as three species of endangered sea turtles: the hawksbill, the olive ridley and the green sea turtles. In Taytay, there are over 156 fish species, as well as sea cows, sea turtles and three species of dolphins: the bottle-nosed, Risso’s, and the endangered Irrawaddy dolphins, which in the Philippines can only be found in Malampaya Sound.

“The resorts are active in both reef and island conservation, helping to protect giant-clam gardens and supporting the reintroduction of endangered Philippine cockatoos,” Travel + Leisure magazine said on its website, which also lists El Nido Resorts as one of “Our 20 Favorite Green Hotels.”

To preserve the area’s natural beauty and lessen their carbon footprint, El Nido Resorts’ projects include comprehensive wastewater treatment and desalination plants, rainwater harvesting system, solar panels, and an organic farm, the release said.

Meanwhile, guests can choose from various low-impact activities, such as snorkelling, diving, kayaking, trekking, and rappelling. On Saturdays, the resort holds its “Green Hour,” when guests can listen to the resorts’ environmental officers talk about El Nido’s unique beauty and biodiversity.

According to El Nido Resorts, its marine biologist-led environmental team also ensures that all its island resorts adhere to the highest standards of ecological conservation and sustainability policies, so that the area’s rich biodiversity is preserved and protected.  Carmela G. Lapeña/BM,

Two foreign hotel chain operators have opened new branches in Palawan and Manila, amid increased demand for budget travel packages and business travels.

Movenpick Hotels and Resorts said in a statement it would manage Huma Island Resort, a private island in Palawan. The resort is one of the 15 new hotels to be opened by Movenpick across Asia by 2015.

Movenpick chief operating officer Andreas Mattmuller for the Middle East and Asia said the region has been a major focus for expansion by the Swiss company.

Tune Hotels also opened its first Manila hotel in Ermita. The hotel has 167 rooms, including 117 double, 48 twin sharing and two wheelchair- friendly rooms.

“We are very excited with the opening of Tunes Hotel Ermita, our very first hotel in the capital city. With three more Tune Hotels coming up in Manila this year and next, Manila will be a very important growth center for our regional expansion,” said Tune Hotel’s chief executive Mark Lankester.

Lankester said Tune Hotels Ermita is expected to attract Filipino “balikbayan” who make annual trips back to Manila every year.

Tune Hotels opened a chain in Angeles City in Pampanga in February that serves as an airport hotel for the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport in Clark.

Accomodation in el nido palawan

 

Question by .: How much does it cost to stay at el nido palawan per night?
I don’t want to spend a lot. Are there better places to stay than el nido palawan?

Best answer:

Answer by OasisNick
There are only a couple of resorts at El Nido, Palawan – both are owned by the same company and are expensive! ($ 120 p/n +)

El Nido is at the northern tip of Palawan and is very beautiful and unspoiled but it is hard to get to. If looking for budget options then Puerto Pricesa is the place to fly in to (from Manila or Cebu), from here you can easily explore the underground rivers and great beaches on a small budget (US$ 20 per day kind of level).
