White soft powdery sand,
Warm kisses from the sun,
Relaxing sound of coconut trees
Clear turquoise water,
Tranquil hut cottages by the ocean,
Cool salty breeze,
Refreshing handcrafted cocktails,
Infinity pool overlooking the ocean,
And tucked away from the commotion of the world.
Ahhhhh… distinctively P A R A D I S E…
Please take me back to Club Paradise Resort, Coron Palawan. Its whimsical beauty is the perfect vacation destination for all of the above.
Jet lagged and sleep deprived, excitement escalated from the breathtaking views of the mountains and the islands surrounding me as the boat slowly approached the resort. I had forgotten the long rough roads journey from the airport.
At the resort, we were greeted with refreshing moist towelettes, honey “calamansi” (a tiny green citrus fruit) cocktail and serenaded by the in-house band. The staff introduced themselves to us – newly arrived guests, and one of them gave us a tour of the resort and our room. My favorite welcome treat was the complimentary foot spa.
“This getaway is going to be marvelous and relaxing.”
My ULTIMATE Goals for 4 Days 3 Nights were;
Be lazy, Relax, Eat, Free my mind from everything and Enjoy the paradise.
DAY 1 GOALS: Chill, relax, eat and drink – ACCOMPLISHED!
DAY 2 GOALS: Island hop, enjoy some water activities, chill, relax, eat and drink – COMPLETED!
DAY 3 GOALS: Chill, relax, hang-out by the pool, swim, eat, eat, eat and more cocktails – SUCCESS!
DAY 4 GOALS: Wake up early to pack and hang-out by the pool, eat and drink – CONCLUDED!
Relax and enjoy the most stunning panoramic view of the ocean and the mountains. Listen to the soothing waves crashing against the cliffs. Feel the cool sea breeze from your private balcony.
Features over-sized door sliders that provide natural lighting and an up close view of the lush tropical greens.
DINING WITH A view
The surreal views, pristine water, exquisite food and presentation, tasty drinks, daily breakfast buffet with an array of hot and cold foods, moonlight dinner, exceptional and hospitable service to perfectly complete the meal, I could really go on and on.

Coron island tour
It was a hectic and fun filled day. We sailed along the sparkling coastline to the twin lagoons and small coves. Trekked the challenging, slippery and uneven steps to the natural splendor of Kayangan lake. Anchored at a nearby island for a hearty lunch, swam with the fishes and were mesmerized by the vividly hued tropical marine life of Siete Picados. Rejuvenated at Maquinit hot spring, and ended our day in the Coron town for souvenir shopping.
Things to do at the resort
If you want to stay at the resort to achieve that golden tan, be lazy like me, and soak up the all that vitamin D, here are some activities that are available at the resort:
- Get that much needed pampering at the spa
- Learn to scuba dive
- Kayak, snorkel, hike, bike
- Play billiards, ping pong, foosball and tennis
- Chill by the pool and by the beach
- Take pictures
- Eat, drink and be merry!
Filipino hospitality at its best
What made this vacation remarkable was the level of attention provided by the staff. It was unprecedented. They didn’t want their guests to lift a finger. The supervisor was visible. He would check up on every guest, every day, making sure that we were happy and all our needs were being accommodated.
All the staff, from boaters, tour operators, food/bar attendants, reception, entertainers, groundskeeper, housekeeper and reception… everybody was charming, warm, friendly, helpful, cheerful and courteous. What a royal treatment! Thank you very much a compassionate service.
I didn’t stay longer. I wish I stayed at least a week to explore the surrounding islands.
