How to Get There
Busuanga bay lodge is a boutique styled resort about 45 mins from Coron town and an hour from Busuanga airport. We visited in the rainy season so the resort was generally quiet during our stay.
Whilst fairly isolated, the resort is in a beautiful part of Busuanga and is close to many islands.
They have a magnificent pool and great views of the surrounding islands. The rooms were clean and spacious.
The staff are very friendly and the talented musicians that play at dinner and gave us a goodbye song on departure were fantastic and added a great romantic touch.
Unfortunately there are a few areas that let this resort down. The food, whilst always well presented doesn’t match in taste and is very expensive. For example, I ordered a $30 seafood dish in which everything was very over cooked. The tuna fillet to the point that it tasted like canned tuna, squid was rubbery and prawns were tough.
However we found a great eating option around 15 mins from the resort in Busuanga bistro and we started having our non complimentary meals there. Even with a 300 peso transport fee the meals were a fraction of the price of the resort and far tastier.
The other criticism I have is the price of the activities which were very expensive. However you can take a short ride to Concepcion town and hire boats from there again for a fraction of the cost.
There are few 5 star options currently in Busuanga and our experience was overall a positive way to end our travels in Palawan.
The resort is paced at the seaside a small hour`s drive north of Coron Town. It is situated in an absolutely lovely bay with hotels and private residences in white Bermuda style. It is one of the top resorts in Busuanga and probably the only one placed on the main island which makes logistics easier. The staff is super friendly and makes the stay very pleasant. The resort is placed in a hillside with a bit of altitude difference, however the buggy carts will transport you swiftly from/to any place on the resort. The food in the restaurant is also delicious with fine (included) breakfasts and dines where especially the seafood impressed. We recommend BBL highly.
This place is truly incredible! The staff are so friendly and helpful and the location is spectacular. There’s not many places like this in the world so I highly recommend you stay there whilst the area has not been commercialized yet. Yes it’s a little far from Coron town but that’s actually the drawcard. It’s easy enormously enough to get to as they’ll help to pick you up from the airport of ferry and there is also a cool seaplane that stops there daily which I wish we’d known about before as that would have been the best way to travel! The resort has and amazing pool and great day trips and the room we stay in was big with an awesome view that double doors opened out to a balcony. The food and cocktails is really good and theres a wonderful live band that plays every night at dinner and also greets you when you arrives and sends off of when you go. The dive center connected to it is also fantastic - high quality equipment, small group diving and the Japanese war wrecks is some of the best diving in the world. A lot of the ships are pretty intact and you penetrate the inside of many which is super cool. Overall this place is truly incredible and I absolutely recommend that you stay here if you can!
