A tranquil getaway in the Palawan Islands, with white sands, turquoise waters and gorgeous ocean views
If you've ever dreamed of a tropical-island getaway, chances are you imagined something like the Palawan Islands. The lush landscapes here look straight out of a postcard, with greenery cascading down craggy cliffs, secluded turquoise waters and powdery white sands. Devoted to maintaining the ecological state of the area, El Nido Resorts Miniloc Island blends in seamlessly with its surroundings, nestled in one of the island's secluded coves.
Despite the untouched nature of the island, you'll enjoy plenty of luxuries here. The resort's charming accommodations offer traditional touches, and the healthy list of modern conveniences ensure a comfortable stay. You won't go hungry either, thanks to the lovely restaurant. Spend your free time scuba diving, snorkeling, windsurfing or simply lounging on the sand, and when the sun sets, grab a spot by the Beach Bar and toast to the good life – how's that for an itinerary?

Garden cottages and Beachside rooms both feature lovely thatched roofs and walls covered in traditional woven bamboo slats.

The resort's eatery, Clubhouse Restaurant, offers a wonderful mix of local cuisine and international favorites. You'll also enjoy Beach Bar, an inviting spot for sipping cocktails in the sun. For a real special experience, we suggest arranging a picnic or a private dinner around the island.
If lounging on the sand and gazing at endless ocean views isn't enough to help you unwind, then the resort's spa menu might have what you're looking for. Treatments here include a variety of Asian, European and tropical face and body treatments, perfect after a day in the sun.
