ACCLAIMED as the Philippines’ Last Frontier, Palawan is so blessed with marvels of nature that it is home to not just one, but two UNESCO World Heritage sites: The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park and Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park.
Astoria Palawan, is located in a eight-hectare mango orchard fronting the Sulu Sea within the City of Puerto Princesa.
Guests can use the hotel as a jump-off point to tick items off their Palawan bucket list. Explore the Underground River on the Western side of the island; go North to El Nido for some island hopping and snorkeling in saltwater lagoons; hop to the Northwestern side for Astoria Palawan’s curated Port Barton Tour.
The resort also offers convention facilities, restaurants, a beach and pool area, a bar, comfortable rooms, and an eclectic ambiance.
And then there’s the waterpark. The Palawan Waterpark by Astoria, located just next door, is expected to be one of the highlights of staying in the resort. It is a one hectare area filled with giant slides, a wave pool, a lazy river ride, and splash pods.
Astoria Palawan will also organize four days/three nights private tours that highlight the best of what the province can offer.
It’s newly launched Port Barton Tour includes a day at San Vicente to go island hopping, snorkeling, swimming, fish feeding, and more; a private tour of a white sand island 20 minutes away from Astoria by boat; dinner on a boat sailing around Puerto Princesa Bay; and a kayak fireflies tour, among other activities.
Astoria Palawan’s tour reservation officers can plan a whole week with memorable, fun activities, according to Astoria Palawan General Manager Joy Suarez.
