Located on a private island with breathtaking scenery comparable to Vietnam's spectacular Halong Bay, Pangulasian Island is the first and only luxury accommodation available in this pristine hideaway setting. Known as the “Island of the Sun”, guests at Pangulasian can enjoy stunning views of the sunrise and sunset from the expansive white sandy beach stretching over 2400 foot.

The high-end amenities include an infinity pool, restaurant, a private dining area, beach bar, poolside grill, boutique, library, gym, spa, hiking trail with viewing deck, five-star dive center and a marine sports center. The deluxe abodes rest either on stilts above the lush flora and fauna or beside the beach or pool, all just a stones throw from warm inviting water. The villas, decorated with a neutral palate and natural materials, are spacious with their own private balcony (some have private pools and bath tubs), complimentary Wi-Fi, international TV channels, iPod dock, tea and coffee making facilities and mini-bar.
These well-appointed villas are ideal for beach lovers, given their direct access to the white sands and clear waters of Pangulasian's stunning beachfront. The villas feature luxurious amenities, and are also conveniently located near the resort's infinity pool, beach bar and poolside grill.
Elevated to a height of 59-feet above ground, villas are accessible either by buggy or stairs. Expansive views can be seen from the villas of azure waters and white sand beaches. The canopy villas offer the exclusive added feature of a luxurious bathtub.
The secluded, quiet, and luxurious pool villas feature a private 72-square-foot pool surrounded by a balcony for lounging in the sun, where guests can enjoy the stunning views of Bacuit Bay.
The facilities at Pangulasian Island Resort are all about exclusivity and bespoke pampering, so guests can indulge and enjoy true pampering and relaxation, Filipino-style.
