Club Paradise Palawan Resort Review
It was a warm and exceptionally curated welcome. The smooth airport pick up, convenient speed boat transfer, welcoming serenades, sweet alcohol-free margarita, gleeful atmosphere, delightful afternoon delicacies, heartfelt staff greetings, and unparalleled customer service all contributed to the one of a kind resort experience.
Club Paradise Palawan (resort info) offers not just exclusivity but a total escape package that sets you free from harsh life realities and cleansed you from toxic daily grinds. Though temporarily, it helps you rethink your possibilities, reconsider your options, and plan for the right direction. Communing with nature is an excellent way to replenish your good mantra, and Club Paradise offers more than that.
Though the pristine white sand that clad its beachfront and the comfortable accommodation options that dot its premises make the stay more fun and comfortable, the total customer experience and the rustic charm make the stay truly remarkable.
Coexisting with Nature
Under Forest Land Use Agreement for Tourism (FLAgT), the resort stands exclusively on a government property, Dimakya Island, where monitor lizards, hawksbills, fruit bats, night herons, asian glossy starlings, and eurasian tree sparrows can crawl and fly freely. You can see them crossing the walkways, hopping from tree to tree, and crawling across the beach.
If you are lucky, you may spot a family of dugongs feeding on the seagrass under the clear, aquamarine waters that surround the island.
The Al Fresco Reception and Dugong Bar
Uniquely designed for both socials and receiving guests, the alfresco reception considers sustainability in mind. Instead of providing an energy-depleting air-conditioning units, the design allows harnessing the sea breeze to provide ventilation for the guests. For seasons when the wind is scarce, the more energy-efficient electric fan installations do the job.
The lighting fixtures that are embellished with colorful, locally made enclosures added an elegant feel to the resort’s rustic charm.
The Dugong Bar sits at the opposite side of the reception desks, and has a good vantage of the island’s beautiful sunset. It offers refreshments and wide selection of wines, local beers, cocktails, and other spirits. Imagine watching the sky morphing its color as the sun sets while you sip your glass of wine. The thought of it is just perfect.

Environmental sustainability is not only considered in its drinking water processing and energy use but also in the resort kitchen. Club Paradise Palawan has its own farm, called Taranuman, where some of the ingredients used in cooking are sourced.
