Award-winning El Nido Resorts can surely agree with the Philippine tourism campaign “It’s More Fun In The Philippines” as it continues to reap more recognition for its properties.

“El Nido Resorts is happy to support and show to the world that it is indeed more fun in the Philippines, and definitely more fun in El Nido, Palawan,” enthused El Nido Resorts President Laurent Lamasuta. “We share the fun in the Philippines by showing to the whole world the truth, that we have one of the best protected marine environments, not just in the country, but probably in the world,” he added.

Set within a marine protected area, towering limestone cliffs, beautiful islands, and the majestic Bacuit Bay, El Nido in Palawan is said to be the last frontier, or heaven on earth, by both experts and those who have seen its beauty. It boasts of some 400 species of corals, more than 800 species of tropical marine fish, five species of endangered sea turtles, and a lot more. This is perhaps one of the reasons the Philippines is known to be the center of the center of marine biodiversity in the world.

Leading the protection and conservation of El Nido and Taytay in Palawan for almost 30 years now, El Nido Resorts and its dedicated environment team has been in the forefront of investing in educating both locals and resort guests in sustainability and appreciation of the environment, resulting to why El Nido and Palawan still have one of the richest diversity of flora and fauna.

This October 15, 2012, Pangulasian Island, the newest eco-luxury island-resort in the Philippines, will be unveiled. It is built with contemporary Filipino design, set fronting a pristine beach surrounded by crystal-clear waters, with a house reef teaming with marine life, and a backdrop of lush tropical forest.

“We are pleased to introduce and soft-open Pangulasian Island in El Nido. It is the island which will give you a perfect view of the sunrise and sunset, whether you are at the resort, or kayaking by the bay. This is truly another premium brand of El Nido Resorts, which will join Miniloc and Lagen Island Resorts in El Nido, and Apulit Island Resort in Taytay,” says Joey Bernardino, Director of Sales and Marketing.

From its inception, Pangulasian Island was planned and designed to preserve the environment, take advantage of and blend with the existing topography of the land. The architectural and interior design reduced site impact by using stilt foundations, integrated local and natural materials sourced responsibly, and maximized natural lighting and ventilation to reduce energy consumption.

The resort’s commitment to sustainable practices is visible in all aspects of Pangulasian, from its conception, design, construction, and operations, while providing a setting of grandeur, modern comforts and exceptional amenities, excellent food and services; truly, a fun place for relaxation and a meaningful holiday.
