EL NIDO - Palawan 


El Nido is on the northwestern tip of mainland Palawan and is famous for its luxurious resorts and prized birds’ nest soup. But whether you stay in the budget side of town or on its exclusive islands, region of the Philippines it is really a magical place for any visitor to enjoy amazing Holiday Packages from LEx. - from its ageless towering marble cliffs to its white sandy beaches with crystal clear water, many refer to it as paradise. There are over 50 beaches to discover, so many in fact that sometimes you feel as if you are on your own secluded private beach.  You will also find enchanting lagoons with tranquil turquoise-green water, caves that can take you to hidden beaches, and a very diverse variety of wildlife can be found easily on your travels El Nido - Palawan is a top destination for island hopping, book your boat, take some food, some drinks in a cool box and disappear into the heavenly marine reserve that is Bacuit Bay ~ " It is truly a relaxing and inspiring place "


Alex Garland wrote "The Beach" while living in Palawan in his place of inspiring serene beauty . . .  


The ordinariness (and some might say the ugliness) of El Nido only heightens the contrast between the mundane and the sublime. Spanish for ‘the nest’, El Nido is the gateway to the fabulous Bacuit Archipelago. The town, sandwiched between towering limestone karst cliffs and Bacuit Bay, is cluttered with buildings that creep onto the beach and businesses that cater to tourists.   Centre stage is the looming Cadlao Island, just offshore.  Taking a room in town means being close to restaurants and beachside bars, but also closer to the everyday sights and sounds; otherwise, you can stay in one of the nearby communities, or splash some cash for accommodation in the archipelago itself.  Something of a French invasion is occurring amongst accommodation, restaurant, and other tourism-related businesses.  No matter what country you come from, El Nido's beauty and amazing scenery plus crystal clear tropical waters with its other hidden Luxury Islands and Resorts will definitely spoil and seduce you into wanting to stay longer - ForeverScuba diving is also a popular activity here with over 30 dive sites for varying levels and skills; from taking the plunge and learning to dive for the first time, to perfecting your expertise and advancing your qualifications. 

Yet El Nido has so many different treasures to offer beyond the obvious. Further activities available include cliff climbing, waterfalls, kayaking, cave exploration, windsurfing, plus you can also hire a motorbike and discover the surrounding north of Palawan.  Palawan is frequently referred to as "The Final Frontier". Once you have been here you realize why. Enchanting El Nido is truly breathtaking; many leave, with their lives, changed by this magical place.



Hidden Luxury Islands and Resorts will definitely spoil and seduce you into wanting to stay longer - Forever

modern world.  The best feature of this resort is its breathtaking location on its own island,

El Nido Lagen Island Resort

The El Nido Lagen Island resort is the most luxurious (and most expensive) of the three

El Nido hotels in the area, and like the others, it occupies a secluded portion of a small island that is only accessible by boat. The 18 water villas here are beautifully appointed using local materials and are ideal for honeymooners.  There are fewer activities available at this resort compared to the others in the group, so this is an ideal place to get away from it all and just relax while enjoying the amazing scenery


Water villas: 18 Total rooms / suites: 50 from US $795
