Lagen Island is a haven of tranquility nestled between a lush forest and a calm shallow lagoon. Its calssic and modern design exudes an air of subdued elegance. Cottages, rooms and suites are well appointed over the water, beside the beach, or surrounded by verdant forest. Lagen Island is part of the El Nido Resorts group and is located in El Nido, northwestern part of Palawan. It takes a 75-minute direct flight from Manila or a 6 hour land trip from Puerto Princesa City (Palawan's Capital City).

It is an outdated resort. Boats taking guests to the resort and returning back to Lio Beach are very outdated, covered with torn plastic sheets which expose the guests to wind, water splash and even rain. Considered as the most eco-friendly resort, I found nothing special

Make sure you check in with the resort as to where boat pickup will be on the actual day as it may change between the jetty port and their own jetty which is closer to the airport, this will depend on tides and swell height.

Yes, but wait till you go on the island hopping excursions. The waters are clear and warm.

You need to transfer via boat to go to diff resorts. Meal is inclusive if you get the package. Going elsewhere to eat from Lagen needs to be arranged since you need boat transfer to go to the city.

"The ones in the front were adequate for 2 and close walking to all areas. Cheaper and convenient and just as nice."
"Overwater Sunset rooms!"
"Water villas facing sea are good"
"We had forest rooms and they had great views. There are some rooms where their views were obstructed by big trees but still beautiful."
"Water cottage is amazing but just staying on the island is worth it!"
