El Nido Beach Spa & Resort is set to open on the white sandy beaches of El Nido on Palawan Island, Philippines in 2022. When completed, the 10-hectare beachfront estate will boast panoramic tropical ocean views, 96 pool villas, an adventure park, dive centre, waterfalls, unique dining experiences and signature spa and wellness facilities.

“The new resort truly embodies our philosophy of delivering unique experiences to our guests,” comments Gordon Oldham, Founder and Owner of The Pavilions Hotels & Resorts. “We’re also very excited to be the first international luxury resort brand in El Nido.”

With a focus on adventure, the hotel offers its guests ‘Curated Journeys’ – bespoke travel itineraries – as well as an adventure park with alpine slides, nature park stairs, rock gardens, fountain ponds, a butterfly garden and cable car.

Featuring a mix of one and two-bedroom luxury villas, as well as 20 Maldivian-style over-water villas – each of which come with private plunge pools and direct access to the oceans – the development is set to be built with sustainability in mind and minimal environmental impact.

The resort also offers property investment opportunities with villas starting from $239,000 (USD) for a one-bedroom villa with staged payments throughout the build. Buyers can expect guaranteed rental returns alongside up to four weeks’ free usage each year, as well as Pavilions Hotels & Resorts owners’ global benefits.
