3 Private Island Resorts for Luxurious Getaways
For when you're feeling extra indulgent
What does your vacation look like? Probably along the lines of a beachfront or semi-beachfront hotel for three to four days with either friends or family, or a nice romantic stay for two at a mountain lodge. For some, it may be the wilderness, along with backpacking and mountain climbing. But what if money was no object? Here are three of the most expensive vacations you can have in the Philippines, just to get you started on those ideas.
Do you have one to two million pesos that you feel like casually spending? Consider booking an entire island for a vacation. For that amount, you can rent Ariara Island, located in Palawan. It’s a 125-hectare island getaway that up to 18 people can have all to themselves. There is a well-trained staff to assist you and loads of facilities like boats, jet skis, swimming pools, yoga areas, and many more.
