Panja Resort Palawan
Palawan is an island province of the Philippines located in the Mimaropa region. Palawan is a slice of heaven, a sliver of an island that teems with exotic wildlife, quaint fishing villages and UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
Puerto Princesa is the island’s main city and is a popular tourist location with many beach resorts and seafood restaurants. It is reached by plane from Cebu and Manila. It is the perfect place to start exploring both the north and south of Palawan. Attractions include the UNESCO Underground River which follows a network of pitch-black caves. Thought to be the longest navigable tunnel in the world, it is great to explore.
In the north of Palawan, the Calamian Islands offer some of the most undiscovered and interesting wreck diving in the world and another must do for divers is the limestone cliffs of Coron Island that rise vertically out of the sea. Inland, Cayangan volcanic lake is surrounded by rock walls and is also a perfect spot for swimming, snorkeling and diving.
Panja Resort Palawan
Panja Resort Palawan is situated in the hills above Puerto Princesa and just 15 kilometres from the City Centre making Panja a great choice of resort hotel style accommodation for tourists and business travellers alike.
Panja Resort is strategically located to provide easy access to the multitude of attractions in and around Puerto Princesa which include the famous Underground River (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) as well as the stunning islands of Honda Bay which you can see from the resort.
The resort offers complimentary collection from Puerto Princesa International Airport in air conditioned transport and will drive you the relatively short distance (approximately 30 minutes) to the resort where you will find a warm Filipino welcome.
Panja Resort offers a choice of 35 well appointed rooms providing comfortable accommodation, including premiere deluxe room with a queen size and single bed, deluxe queen room with a queen size bed and deluxe twin room with 2 single beds. All rooms are en suite and include balcony with stunning views, air conditioning, LCD TV, mini bar, safe and complimentary toiletries.

During your stay you will want to visit some of the many local attractions which the receptionists or concierge will gladly arrange for you.
The restaurant is open from 6am until 10pm and serves breakfast (included in your room rate if you are staying at Panja Resort), lunch and dinner.
You can opt for a table outside on the veranda with stunning views over to the Islands of Honda Bay or sit inside in air conditioned comfort.
The à la carte menu is primarily Asian Fusion, all freshly prepared by the chef and his team.
Of course, Palawan being an island with the South China Sea to one side and the Sulu Sea to the other, you can expect to find plenty of fresh seafood on the menu all washed down with a selection of wines, beers or fresh juices (and perhaps a brandy before you retire for the night).
Further afield, this beautiful region area offers excellent island hopping and opportunities for snorkelling and getting away from it all. This is an undiscovered part of the world and a must do for adventurous travellers who strive for the extraordinary.
