Dave’s Travel Corner: Puerto Princesa, Philippines: Lodging, Eateries, and Sites

 

Pool at Acacia HotelThanks to Dave’s Travel Corner for sharing our story about Puerto Princesa, Philippines: Lodging, Eateries, and Sites

With 1,500 people a day arriving to see the sites in and around Puerto Princesa (Philippines), travelers need to know where to stay, what to eat, and where to visit. In the last twelve months, many new accommodation options have opened up including the boutique styledl and Kamia Bay’s lovely resort. Long time restaurant favorites such as Ka Inato and Kina Buch continue to delight tourists and locals alike with tasty Palawan food at reasonable prices. As far as what to do, the top billing in the Puerto Princessa area is the unique and captivating Underground River. However, lesser known gems are worth visiting just outside Puerto Princessa.

Lodging: Tucked along Manalo Extension located a five-minute drive from the airport is the chic boutique Acacia Tree Garden Hotel. Acacia Tree opened in October 2012. Twenty-five rooms are set around a pool. The lovely garden setting makes you feel miles away from any troubles or traffic. The hotel won the Best Budget Hotel in Palawan Golden Globe Award and has the largest room size in the area. For their upcoming one-year anniversary, a butterfly garden is being planned to add to the garden. Guests enjoy billiards, darts and board games in the communal area near the reception desk.

Diving at Kamia BayEach room is named after a local plant that grows outside the front door. The blinds are from Binuatan Creations, made at the local weaving station. Everything is carefully thought out and comfortable. Kenneth Cobonpue, a well-known international designer and resident of Cebu, for example, designed the chairs in the lobby.
