      Our amazing experience at Apulit Resort ”

      It's very important that the Resort takes care of your arrival, they picked us at the office, our hotel was in el nido right next to Apulit main office so it was very comfortable, they also pick you from the airport if you just landed. It's a small journey to get to the island so it took something like 2 hours overall . So they drive you to their center at taytay port and than by boat to the island. Everything is beautiful, you have free activities all day and the food is great!! Recommended!!!

      Private Escape”

      A long trek from ENI airport (3 hours) but absolutely stunning as an escape. Unfortunately for those looking for the IG lagoons and crowds which are on the west side, this is on the East side. A LOT more remote and less crowded and worth the journey if this is what you're looking for. Absolutely amazing snorkeling and corals and adventurous options - rock climbing, snorkeling, diving, wind surfing, reefs. Will definitely stay again.

The staff are friendly and the food is great, the snorkeling is amazing, the beach is beautiful and so are the sunsets. We love it every time we visit.

      Amazing secluded high quality paradise experience”

      Apulit Island resort (El Nido Resort) is an amazing place. I definitely like to come back. I traveled to Apulit with my partner to have a luxurious stay for two nights at the end ouf our travel. The price per night is quite high for our budget, but once at Apulit most events are included. So we did two tours, went for night snorkling (small extra fee), had amazing food three times a day. So overall cost is actually manageable. Staff is very professional and genuinely friendly. Very clean and eco friendly. I could very easily spend a week at Apulit.

      I recommend that the boat crew should also be provided with uniform (shirts) for them to look more presentable. Emergency communication system must also be installed in the boat and a search light/beacon must be placed in the island to be used during very low visibility.

      The resorts are really cool and the idea of floating houses is a must try. You will find quite a lot of wild life there from: parrots, ,lizards, crabs, sharks and much more...

      Amazing stay”

      The resort is remote from El nido town but it was a very chill, peaceful and beautiful stay. The resort provides a few complimentary tours which were quite nice. The food is all inclusive and provides a huge variety of choices. We stayed at the water cottage which has direct access into sea, the sunset view was AMAZING. Very pleasant stay!

      almost paradise ”

      Apulit island resort is one of our favorite places to visit for 3 years in a row now. we love it there. the problem is that the scuba diving is too expensive to use, so we just snorkel each time we stay here. also it would be nice to be able to use the sailboat. otherwise it's almost perfect.

      Wonderful overall experience ”

      Attentive, well-trained staff really looked after our every need. Many activities on offer from hiking to snorkelling, rock climbing to boat trips which are all included in the price. The water bungalows have amazing views; really comfy beds and delicious food. The long journey to get here was soon forgotten!
