Travelers that worry about the environment have a great pick in the Astoria Palawan. Not only does this eco-friendly Puerto Princesa hotel have 116 rooms, a swimming pool, restaurant, and waterpark, it’s also in the middle of a mango orchard and has a treatment plant that recycles its waste water.
The resort has 116 rooms and villas that range from 38 to 91 square meters in size. Accommodations are designed in vibrant tropical colors of orange, blue, and yellow. Each room is equipped with a kitchenette and tea set, modern rain shower and bathtub, and complete bathroom amenities. Finding entertainment while staying in is easy as well, with their LED television with cable, DVD player, and complimentary WiFi.
Astoria Palawan is also home to the Mangrove Conference and Convention Center, a 439 square meter venue space built to accommodate all kinds of events - from large corporate functions to intimate social gatherings. It houses one grand ballroom with a 450-seating capacity and two function rooms with a 200-seating capacity. Their Dining Pavilion also features an open kitchen, where guests can see their favorite dishes prepared and cooked right in front of them. Diners who choose to dine al fresco also have a view of the Sulu Sea and the hotel’s 35 meter infinity pool.
Travelers looking to stay-in can also take advantage of the hotel’s indoor recreation area, which houses a billiard table, card and board games, ping-pong, and computer stations/video games for children. A putting green, off-road bikes, and a beach volleyball court are also available for guests. However, its main recreational draw is the Palawan Waterpark by Astoria, which has spiral slides, rides, and splash pods to keep both children and adults entertained.
The Astoria Palawan’s location gives guests front-row seats to the majestic Sulu Sea, and its location on a five hectare mango orchard makes it the perfect haven for those looking to experience a different kind of tropical vacation. It’s near Honda Bay and is an hour’s drive away from the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park.
