This was a destination for a little getaway with a group of friends for a celebration. Right on as you approach the island, it feels like a magical little getaway already and the stay in the island just got better. It really was simple island living but made absolutely fabulous by a great team led by Dez. She had a...

Arena island is a great place for a relaxing and private beach holiday! I visited with a group of friends for this trip. Even though there was another family on the island, it felt like we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves. There was absolutely no one to disturb our quiet beach time and you never run into...

If you ever need a private island experience, Arena Island is the place to go. I immediately felt relaxed upon setting foot on this island. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable especially the outdoor bathroom. There are numerous activities offered on the island such as snorkelling, kayaking, massages or you can just lie on the numerous hammocks scattered around the...

Hi! Emma_TH8, It's always heartwarming to know that our guest in Arena Island enjoyed their stay. Of the very nice things you mentioned, its really the sense of privacy the island can offer that we are proud of and intend to sustain. Yes, the sunrise and sunsets could remind us of the beauty of God's creation. You probably noticed that...

I stayed on Arena Island with a group of friends for 5 days/4 nights and had a super relaxing and fabulous holiday. We stayed in Casa Tres and Casa Cuatro, which was spacious enough to fit four adults per room. There were other guests in one other cassita, but we never saw them as they have done a wonderful job...

Hi! Ms. Susan, So sorry for the bad weather that greeted you in the island. Atleast you liked the food and service we offered.

We stayed in Arena Island for 3D/2N. Booking and transfer arrangements were efficiently handled by the owner, Ms. Chit Guerrero. (Tip: Contact her through the mobile numbers posted on their website; it's much faster than communicating through e-mail as internet connection in Puerto Princesa is intermittent). We were met by Arena Island staff and rode in Arena's own van from...

Dear Rbmillan, Thank you so much for your very detailed review, much appreciated. We promise to keep the island as private as possible for our guests.
