Of all 100 destinations that made it on the list like Maldives’ Reethi Rah and New York’s Hotel Americano, Ariara Island landed the number one spot.
Nestled in unspoiled Calamian Islands, which lies north of Palawan, it is 160 miles southwest of Manila and is accessible via air transport then a boat ride.
Ariara is a private island that can cater up to a group of 17. The island’s rates are in US dollars and is only available for exclusive rental to one group/party of guests at a time. It takes pride in its “rule your own island for a week” concept. Guests can stay for a minimum of seven nights costing US$295 per guest per night during low season. In Philippine pesos, it costs more than Php12,000 per person.
Travelers seeking either adventure or relaxation will appreciate the variety of activities one can enjoy on Ariara Island. For adventurers, pump up some action with activities like scuba diving, windsurfing, wake boarding, and snorkeling.
While those who want to sit back, relax, and commune with nature, may laze in a hammock by the beach or book a yoga instructor or masseuse.
Ariara Island has also been featured and received positive reviews from different lifestyle and travel publications like Spectator Life, Elle Magazine and London Evening Standard.
