Dos Palmas Island Resort & Spa, Palawan

Hi friends! The weather had been really uncooperative, and after a long 2 weeks hiatus, I am back with another beautiful tropical escape!

After a long and scenic 50 minute boat ride, look at the gorgeous scenery that greeted us! Aaaahhh! Incredibly priceless! 

Dos Palmas Arreceffi Island is nestled in the tropical waters of Honda Bay, northeast of Puerto Prinsesa, Palawan. This upscale resort is a quiet hideaway amidst pristine natural surroundings. 

10 Bay Cottages standing on reinforced stilts above water are ideal for couples wanting to get a glimpse of romantic Palawan sunset and sunrise.

I definitely couldn't resist having photo ops here!

...and here, too!

A festive mood welcomes the guests, as staffs greet you with the sound of "Kulintang" (set of gongs) and some indigenous music. Welcome drinks were also served.

My travel BFFs Mai, KarenJardeleza and Marian.

A brief orientation of the resort do's and dont's and some quick reminders to fully appreciate our day tour experience.

Note: Make sure to bring a towel for they don't provide it. ( seriously?!) Swimming pools are only available for in-house guests.

We kayaked and snorkelled to our heart's content!

No special effects here. 
Water was really blue green, crystal clear. The wonders of nature!

This place is simply stunning!

By 12 noon, buffet lunch was served! And we had a feast of only the freshest seafoods in Palawan!

Tuna Salad and various appetizers

Lato (seaweeds)

Seafood Sisig

My favorite! Grilled Blue Marlin! I must have eaten lots! (tee-hee)
