InterAksyon.com reports that Ariara Island in Calamian, Palawan has been named as the number one pick in Vogue’s (UK edition) "100 Holiday Destinations" list, which appears in its August 2012 issue.

 

Ariara Island is described as a "private tropical island." The Official Gazette, which featured the same announcement in InterAksyon.com, cited the island’s website (http://www.ariaraisland.com) as a reference. Upon logging on to the website, we checked the rates and saw this notice: "Ariara is only available for exclusive rental to one group/party of guests at a time." It appears that if there’s a group of 15 to 17 guests during the "low season" (June to October), each guest in that group will pay US$ 295, the cheapest published rate on the island’s website. (Check out the rates by clicking this link.)

 

The InterAksyon.com report revealed that the island has likewise been featured in various other UK magazines such as Angels and Urchins, Harrods Magazine, Harper's Bazaar, The Spectator, Wine and Dine, Urbanollogy, and Tatler.

 

The InterAksyon.com report also pointed out that "the UK remains to be a key generator of tourist arrivals to the Philippines after the market grew stronger last year and registered 104,466 year-end tourist arrivals." In fact, according to Department of Tourism statistics, the UK has already yielded 50,327 tourist arrivals to the Philippines from January to May 2012.
