Certificate of Excellence
Lagen Island is a haven of tranquility nestled between a lush forest and a calm shallow lagoon. Its calssic and modern design exudes an air of subdued elegance. Cottages, rooms and suites are well appointed over the water, beside the beach, or surrounded by verdant forest. Lagen Island is part of the El Nido Resorts group and is located in El Nido, northwestern part of Palawan. It takes a 75-minute direct flight from Manila or a 6 hour land trip from Puerto Princesa City (Palawan's Capital City).

El Nido is one of the most romantic places in Asia for couples. I got engaged here at a private dinner with my girlfriend. We have been enjoying boat excursions, shopping and resting in our private villa. The food is excellent. Five star accommodation.

We were a family group of 20 celebrating my aunt’s 80th birthday; various age groups including pre-teens, 20’s to 50’s and there wasn’t a boring moment. So enjoyable, and the staff were so accommodating - they organised celebrations from a 1st wedding and 19th wedding

Hey! What you can do is take the boat back to the Jetty Port at Lio and from there, you can take a van or a tricycle which is about only 20 minutes away. Before we tried to ask if they can take us directly to the El Nido City Proper however, it was too expensive to do so.

Is the beach good for swimming please?
Yes, but wait till you go on the island hopping excursions. The waters are clear and warm.

You need to transfer via boat to go to diff resorts. Meal is inclusive if you get the package. Going elsewhere to eat from Lagen needs to be arranged since you need boat transfer to go to the city.

Like in many high end resorts, food & beverage is a little expensive. If you are not used to eating big meals, no need to get the full board package. Room service or ala carte is okay 🙂
