Princesa Garden Island Resort and Spa



When I visited this resort, it had barely anything open and few guests. I think it wasn't really fully opened. But here are the shots of the areas I was shown by the friendly staff. I love the open lobby and the natural bamboo touches spread across the resort.

I also ate lunch there at Rice restaurant with a friend and the Greek salad was good, but a bit skimpy on the cucumbers and portion.  I went back a few weeks later to have lunch at the Rice restaurant, but due to lack of guests I suppose, the aircon wasn't on and it was too hot to eat in there. So we left and went elsewhere. Hopefully they won't repeat this.

The bamboo Teepee is now a gift shot and populated with native gifts. 
This is the lobby bar and restaurant. Very open feeling. I have to say I had the best chocolate cake there baked by their own in house baker. They have a chiller with lots of other deserts now I am told.
Lobby café and bar. The chocolate cake is really exquisite. At least it was the day I went there when they first had a soft opening.
This is the breezeway to their Rice restaurant.

What you see when you enter Rice restaurant at the resort. It features Filipino and International cuisines. There is a huge buffet section but it was not yet open when I visited.

This is one of the garden suites. I has a huge jacuzzi tub and a rainfall shower. Access to one of the 6 swimming pools is just a few steps away from the glass sliding door.  Their featured rooms house lanais, and are furnished with all the essentials, plus more. All rooms feature their own 40-inch LED TVs, 8-inch rainfall showers, vanity area with 8 inch magnified mirror, lush pocket gardens and sun loungers.

I haven't stayed there, but they do give local rates to Palawan residents. Not sure if it's worth the stay. I will have to try it out one of these days.
