After sailing through the remote islands of El Nido all the way to Coron with Tao Expeditions for five straight days, I was desperate for a well- deserved break from roughing it. So I planned to end my 15-day Palawan voyage with a relaxing retreat at the world renowned Two Seasons Island Resort. I wasn’t going to leave Palawan without seeing this piece of paradise.
We played endless chill out beats on the iPod dock while lounging in our very own jacuzzi that overlooked the sunset ocean. Only a few steps down our villa leads to a secluded beach cove, dotted with coconuts and frangipani trees. A short walk further down takes you to the sandbar that appears during low tide to the neighboring Bulog island. On the far right from our villa were untouched mangroves that were home to different bird species.
Being so far away from civilization, I was very impressed on how their restaurant, Sulu has so much variety on their menu. It includes local Filipino comfort food, Asian favorites and Continental best sellers. Every dish we sampled was a mouthwatering delight from the freshly caught ahi tuna, the perfectly done steak and their sinfully sweet deserts. We really looked forward to every meal and merienda time because we wanted to try everything on the menu and almost did!
We wanted to visit neighboring islands but was quite disappointed to hear that they are now restricted from the public because they have been bought by developers. This side of paradise is now being set up to be the next Boracay whether we like it or not. We could only hope that future island resorts will have the same eco-friendly development and operations.
Wastewater is processed in such a way that the output is clear and clean enough to be diverted back to the bathrooms for flushing with the use of double piping system, a worthwhile investment that every new structure should have. The resort is ultimately a zero waste establishment, an accomplishment that we Filipinos can truly be proud of.
