This New Bed and Breakfast in Palawan Will Remind You of Home

It's a lot like your grandparents' house.

( The province of Palawan, which will soon be three provinces (but that's a different story), is one of the Philippines' most popular tourist destinations: Who can resist its white-sand beaches, crystal clear water, towering limestone cliffs, and underwater sights? Now, a new bed-and-breakfast in the capital of Palawan is complementing the island's laid-back vibe—The Colonial, which opened in March in Puerto Princesa.

"It's the perfect place to both begin and end the journey of a lifetime through some of the most beautiful destinations in the Philippines and the world," Andi Banez, social media manager of RIESA Property Management Group, tells It is located five minutes away from Puerto Princesa Airport, and just a stone’s throw away from the beach. This makes the bed-and-breakfast the "perfect location" and stopover before moving around Palawan—including other must-see places like El Nido, Coron, and San Vicente.

With its Spanish colonial-style design, The Colonial might also remind guests of their grandparents' house, often a weary city-dweller's respite. With only five rooms, The Colonial offers some peace and quiet even in a busy tourist destination.

If there’s anything we know about great escapes, it’s the importance of booking the right spot for your “home away from home.”


The Colonial is located between BM Road and Blue Road, Puerto Princesa, Palawan. For more information, visit The Colonial's website.
