Coron, Palawan Day 4: Sunlight Eco Tourism Island Resort

Ladies and gents, we have come to the end of my Coron, Palawan adventure! It was fun reliving this memorable trip, and I'm happy to end it with our wonderful stay at Sunlight Eco Tourism Island Resort in Culion, Palawan! Sharing with you photos of this paradise on earth, as well as our amazing experience. Read on to know more...

Nestled in the clear blue waters of Culion, Palawan, 45 minutes off Coron town proper is Sunlight Ecotourism Resort (SETIR), the only luxury island resort in the region that claims a true island getaway. It is one of the biggest single privately-owned island resorts in the region with 18-hectares of lush hills, gently sloping contours of gardens and beaches, and an impressive array of services. 

From Culion town took a boat going to the resort! OMG ganda na from afar!

Refreshing pandan welcome drink!

SETIR’s 55 Maldivian villas (99 rooms) are architecturally designed to have an ocean view of either sunrise or sunset. Each villa on this private island is finely appointed with a Filipino-themed interior, wide windows, and expansive balconies that capture Palawan's lavish beauty.

Our ride to the resto where ate lunch!

SETIR offers amenities that suit several preferences. There are spa and sauna services for those who wish to spend time in relaxation; a variety of restaurants and bars for those who wish to experience a gastronomic adventure; an all-Filipino boutique; a dive shop; a fitness gym and recreation for the health buffs; a playground for kids and the young at heart.

Fresh seafood is available at Island Garden Restaurant

What a feast!!!

After our sumptuous lunch, we were given our key cards, fetched by a golf cart, and was brought to our assigned villa!

Shared this villa with my roomie, Ruth!

Function meets style at SETIR's DUPLEX VILLA. The 90-sqm water villa delights the differing tastes of 4 persons with its parted rooms including 1 queen-sized bed, 2 single-sized beds, and an ocean-view balcony.

This villa has an oceanview balcony, ensuite bathroom with a standing shower, TV, ref, minibar, and could accommodate 4 people.

Hello Seph neighbor! Hehe

The SRIRAKAN VILLA is a 65 sqm water villa that highlights relaxation for 2 with a plush king-sized bed, an indoor jacuzzi, and an extensive sea-view balcony with loungers. Furnished with hardwood fixtures and glass-bottom floors gazing over the teeming marine life beneath, each night promises a warm and breathtakingly beautiful stay.

Walkway going to the villa. Hello Ms. Lorna!

So beautiful the glass floor!

Relax in this jacuzzi at the balcony!

Check out the other villas here:

Two pristine beaches rest on the east and west side of the island, equipped with sun loungers ready to accommodate anyone who loves the sea. The spacious stretch of white sand serves as an oasis of privacy and serenity, ideally for spending a midday interlude bathing under the sun, doing meditative walks and yoga sessions, or having picnics by the beach.

Happy kid yarn?

Had a nice swim with my roomie Ruth, Kuya Melo, Seph and Trice

Beautiful sunset

Situated at the heart of the island is the infinity pool along with the children’s pool, surrounded by sun loungers and patio sets. Adults and children may enjoy soaking while contemplating the mesmerizing views of blues and verdant islands in the background.

Too bad wasn't able to swim in this infinity pool! Next time!

Hello Trice!

Our beautiful dinner set-up! The food's so good too!

We also visited the mangroves after dinner! 

Capped off our night drinking, eating, laughing, and chatting with Ruth, Seph & Trice on our balcony. Natatawa pa din ako pag naalala ko our ramen episode. Haha! Ruth and I got hungry and I said I'm craving for ramen/ramyun. Of course, we were on a private island so I thought that it was impossible. Ruth stood up and checked our minibar and we got so surprised na meron! We LOLed literally. Saved by the minibar. Haha! Anyway, it was such a fun night catching up with friends. :)

Sunrise :)

Time to eat breakfast!

Time to leave! So sad! :(

Goodbye, paradise! We will meet again soon!

We just spent 1 night at Sunlight Ecotourism Resort and albeit short, we made such wonderful memories! One day is truly not enough to enjoy the beauty of the whole island. Hope to go back again soon! :) 

Thank you again Sunlight Hotels & Resort & Sunlight Air for bringing us to Coron, Palawan and for taking care of us! Thank you Tourism Promotions Board, Mimaropa DOT and Kuya Melo for this trip that's truly one for the books. Can't wait to go back and experience Coron's wonders again! :)
