Lotus Garden Restaurant and Suites Palawan

Lotus Garden Restaurant - 371 Rizal Avenue, Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines
Phone: +63-48-434-1132 

Lotus Garden Restaurant and Suites is right on Rizal Avenue down towards town from the Puerto Princesa International Airport. It is a little pocket of tranquility with beautiful water gardens filled with lush vegetation and gorgeous lotus blooming most of the year. We love the relaxing atmosphere and the Sweet Sour Pork on the menu.

They also have very nice suite rooms with airconditioning, Cable TV and hot showers. The rates are quite reasonable.

Irawan Forest Canopy Zipline
They have a 1.3 kms zipline through
the pristine forest canpoy and river
The dishes range from Japanese Sushi to nouvelle Filipino dishes with some Chinese dishes as well. It's quite a mixed menu. They also have a full beverage bar.

You can also book a ride on several of the ziplines at their new venture. At Irawan Forest Canopy Zipline in Irawan, PPC. They have a 1.2 Kilometer zip line which takes you tree level and above the Irawan watershed, which supplies the water to the City of Puerto Princesa. And they also have a huge butterfly garden now as well.  It's not far from the Crocodile Farm so try to include this great eco adventure on your City Tour if you take it.

The outside water gardens...most of the year the lotus flowers are in bloom!
There are Suites in back of the restaurant. You can ask to see the rooms if you want to check them out before renting one. But be warned, there are only 8 suites and almost always fully booked, so if you want to stay there, I do suggest contacting them in advance of your trip.






Photos were taken with my GoPro Hero HD cam which takes stills as well as HD videos. It's got a 170 degree viewpoint which is how I was able to get so much of the restaurant into each frame.
