Standing gloriously on azure waters and pristine white sand beach amidst a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Club Paradise Palawan is truly a heaven on Earth!
After our stay here, we finally understood why it is a top-rated, award-winning resort in Coron, Palawan. From the moment we stepped out of our boat until the time that we had to leave this exclusive 19-hectare tropical island paradise, everything was perfect. We experienced their “Service That’s All Heart” every minute of our stay. Their warm and friendly staff welcomed us with drinks and a very entertaining song upon arrival. After which, we were brought to the private, luxurious room that became our little slice of heaven for the duration of our Coron getaway.
We highly recommend Club Paradise Palawan to travellers who want to explore Coron’s natural wonders and diving sites, and to romantic couples looking for a perfect honeymoon destination.
Imagine yourself in a tropical island, lazing away on a hammock in your exclusive villa’s porch with a span of talcum sand and the blue sea before you. We’d stop dreaming because this could be a reality at Club Paradise Palawan! Their beachfront, thatched-roof Sunset Villa comes in two categories. You can choose between Standard and Deluxe. The difference between the two is that a Standard room is 20 square metres in size, ideal for couples. The Deluxe room, on the other hand, is 34 square metres and can accommodate four people, making it perfect for families or group of friends. An added plus of this room is that it has a walk-in closet. We’d definitely stay here next time!
Stationed amidst the island’s lush greenery, unspoilt velveteen sand, and the beautiful, crystal clear waters of Palawan, the Sunrise Villa is everything a family or big group of friends could hope for and more. The spacious, tastefully designed villa is furnished with a King-sized bed with pull-out beds, hot and cold shower, mini bar with mini refrigerator, and more.
Aptly named, the Garden Suite rests in the middle of a lovely garden. This room was our second bet, and the moment we stepped in, we immediately forgot all our life’s worries. What we liked most about it is its own private balcony where we could laze the afternoon away just admiring the island’s flora and beautiful environment.
We stayed in the Garden View Room and we were happy about our decision as this room offered excellent views of the lush greenery at the resort. It was so refreshing to wake up to this in the morning along with the chirp of birds and the sound of the nearby water. The room was furnished with a King-sized bed and had a really spacious bathroom with a hot and cold shower. It was indeed a beautiful stay and we felt right at home here.
Embark on a sumptuous gastronomic adventure at Firefish Restaurant
Delight in a medley of fresh seafood and tender meats served with the goodness of fruits and vegetables coupled with organically-grown herbs and spices from the resort’s own garden. Firefish Restaurant’s menu features local and international dishes prepared by a young and vibrant culinary team. Everything on their menu looked so delicious, we wanted to try them all! What we ordered, though, were Kilawin na Tanigue, Lechon Kawali, and Kare Kare, and we were more than satisfied.
Indulge in a blissful journey to wellness at Glow Spa
After an exciting day on the beach, we wanted to give ourselves some tender loving care. Fortunately, the Glow Spa at Club Paradise offers a divine menu of heavenly treatments guaranteed to kindle the harmony of the mind, body and spirit. We recommend their signature “Four Hands” treatment where two therapists simultaneously massaged our tired bodies!
Enjoy the resort’s many activities
You can choose to lounge around all day at the resort or try their many outdoor activities including kayaking, paraw sailing, hiking, and diving. What we did was the Coron island hopping tour. The surrounding islands with their pristine beaches and blue waters were just marvellous! New to diving? No need to worry! Discovery Fleet dive center has full-diving and non-diving programs for beginners and seasoned divers.
Make an exhilarating adventure to Diatoy Island
Another thing you can do at Club Paradise Palawan is to take a day trip to Diatoy Island where you can explore the diverse marine life, join a Boodle Fight for lunch or go on a thrilling speed-induced banana boat ride with your friends and families. Sounds fun, isn’t it?
Let the island paradise be your witness to forever
Club Paradise is an ideal wedding destination for couples seeking for utmost privacy, intimacy and romance. It blends the barefoot elegance of a tropical island with the bespoke service of a hotel for a beautifully orchestrated celebration. We couldn’t agree more to this, and we hope to tie the knot with our long-term partners here.
During the nesting season, endangered sea turtles visit the island’s shores and lay eggs at night. Club Paradise Palawan makes sure that the eggs are safe by building fences around them. Once the eggs hatch, the baby turtles are guided back to the sea. Isn’t it heartwarming to know that Club Paradise Palawan has a strong commitment to protecting biological diversity?
If snorkelling is your thing, you will definitely love it at Club Paradise Palawan. The resort’s reef is home to around 550 underwater species including giant clams. As the clams reach sexual maturity, the spawn are expected to help revive the bivalve population not just around the island but in the surrounding islands as well. You will surely have an enjoyable snorkelling experience here. We’re sure we did!
Go for an exciting climb and reward yourself with awe-inspiring views as you reach Eagle’s Point, the island’s highest peak. While hiking around the island, you can definitely catch sight of fruit bats as they sleep upside down from tree branches. Most of them, though, can be found on the Talisay Tree at the back of Glow Spa. They fly out to the mainland at night and come back to Club Paradise Palawan in the morning to sleep.
The first step to getting to Club Paradise Palawan is to catch a flight to Busuanga. Airlines such as Skyjet, Cebu Pacific, and Philippine Airlines have flights going there and last for approximately 45 minutes.
Upon arrival, you have to make your way to the port through a 15-20 minute van ride.
You then take a boat going to Dimakya Island where Club Paradise Palawan is. The boat ride lasts for about 30 minutes. For your convenience, though, we suggest having the resort arrange your transfers.
