Busuanga Island Paradise | Coron

PALAWAN, Philippines  If you're looking for a quiet, high-end place to stay in Coron for the family or for your honeymoon, consider Busuanga Island Paradise resort.

The private resort is nestled within a 21-hectare forest. It's extra quiet here. The only sound that's constant is the river within the resort.

The entire place can entertain a maximum of 40 people. There are five single-detached Casitas ideal for couples or small groups. It also has eight larger rooms for families.



Visitors get a welcome drink upon arrival.

The little bridge over Dimanyan River leading to the Casitas.

The Dimanyan River is the only constant sound in the resort. It's very relaxing.


I stayed at one of the five single-detached Casitas.

Since I was by myself for two nights, I slept on a different bed each night. 


The huge bathroom had too much windows for my privacy.

High ceiling!

The pool and jacuzzi would have been better if heated. Brrrr!

The pool-side bar.

Where I had breakfast.


Danggit for breakfast! Table was reserved just for me.



The resort is a 20-minute shuttle ride from the airport and Coron Town. This can be good or bad, depending on how you look at it. I found it a bit far from town but there wasn't anything to do there anyway.

A shuttle departed 8am every morning, right in time for the tours. I'd request for the driver to pick me up after dinner at around 7pm. I had to be back at the resort by 8pm to avoid the additional Php 700 shuttle charges. Opting to ride a trike going back to the resort would cost around Php 300.
