Terra Nova, Villa #1, one of our two luxury, tropical beachfront hideaway is ideal for a family of 5, or 2 couples + 1 friend, and takes you away from El Nido's touristy areas. Our nightly rate includes many more complimentary amenities, *wines/beers, and fresh juices/smoothies or snacks can also be ordered at a very reasonable price* WE WELCOME ALL SPECIAL REQUESTS ;-) Each of our two 200 sqm upscale Villas is built in a contemporary style using sustainable local tropical timber in front of the turquoise seas of China on the Western Coast of Palawan. The villa and the domain are wholly powered by solar energy, enabling LED lighting and individual fans in each bedroom for optimum comfort, and rainwater is being collected for gardening and non-cooking usage. You will enjoy 2 beautiful and comfortably appointed bedrooms with attached bathrooms and a large shower room. Wake up to the sound of the waves and enjoy a freshly made breakfast on the terrace, go for a morning swim or a meditative yoga session on one the piers, sail to neighboring islands and picnic in the middle of blue lagoons or on silky white sand beaches, snorkel or scuba-dive in this renown diving location, go fishing, or kayaking, taste every day the freshest seafood, vegetables and fruits locally produced and prepared by our dedicated staff, visit our eco-farming activities, and meet the local communities that the Guy Mazzoni Foundation proudly supports. Give back to society while finding yourself along the way! Each villa enjoys over 1 hectare (2.5 acres) of organic farmland that stretches from high on the slopes of Mount Meacac and the Northeast Bay Peak to the beach 1,000 feet below, where the South China Sea meets the Sulu Sea. This retreat is yours and yours only for the length of your stay. This is a true luxury on one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Be our guest. NOTA BENE: Starting April 2017, Terra Nova is comprised of 2 very comfortably appointed villas to accommodate a total of 10-12 people in total visiting El Nido and the Guy Mazzoni Foundation. Ask us if you need more space for a larger family/group, or want to organize a yoga, zazen, martial arts or leadership coaching retreat (we've done that already with the collaboration of iCube - Thrive). Now you can rent both villas #1 + #2 and enjoy the whole peninsula to yourselves (depending on availability - special rates offered). But not to worry as guests of both villas keep enjoying their own privacy as the 2 villas are quite remote from one another (over 1 hectare of land for each villa!), with soon a separate access pier, a separate beach, and the guests will now be able to enjoy a common dining/BBQ terrace, a small gym, and massages (extra fees apply). Of course, guests at each villa can also request to take their meals on their own private terrace. We use our own private boats for the daily expeditions (sometimes you might have to share one boat if you did not rent both villas). We also have 4 sea kayaks to explore local mangroves and lagoons, as well as snorkeling and fishing equipment. Soon we will also take delivery of a brand new speedboat (7.2m zodiac type) - reducing the time between TN and El Nido to 35 min... GUEST PRIVACY Each villa has more than one hectare of land for an inestimable feeling of freedom and privacy. Our staff prepares healthy and delicious fresh meals daily and accommodates all of your needs during your stay (or you can also cook with our chef), including coordinating some out rigging trips or sailing and scuba diving. Of course, our staff will always decide before any boat outing if the daily weather conditions are optimum for your safety.More

Embrace the local peaceful environment and its welcoming communities. Terra Nova is a unique social experiment as a large part of the proceeds from renting the 2 villas support the charity actions of the Guy Mazzoni Foundation to bring better education, medical care, eco-friendly farming and to provide for a sustainable way of living to the local people so the future generations will keep enjoying this pristine environment. We welcome any special request: events, seminars and retreats

About the neighbourhood
Terra Nova is built on a private peninsula located in the Bay of Cataban, near the village of Liminangcong and 30 min away by fast speedboat (55 min by traditional Banka) from El Nido village and airport. We can pick you up from Art Café, or from cosy Mezzanine restaurant-bar owned by our friend Adrien, located on Serena Street, Barangay Buena Suerte, El Nido, Palawan. The Philippines's Palawan Island was voted 2016 Nº1 island in the world by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler magazine. In 1996, the El Nido-Taytay Managed Resource Protected Area was selected as one of the eight Protected Areas within the Philippines by UNESCO and the World Heritage Fund. It is also a marine turtle sanctuary.
Getting around
Terra Nova is located on a private, secluded peninsula (11º 1’98” N - 119º 19’14’ E), West coast of Palawan, 35-55 min away by speedboat, at the South -East of El Nido Village and Airport (1hr flight from Manila). There is also a small access to the closest fishing village, by a dirt road leading to Taytay and Puerto Princesa (international airport) which is about 5+ hours away from El Nido by private car or mini-van - the road is bumpy but very scenic. HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE THAT you can not directly access our residence by car (only 10-15 min boat ride from the nearest village which is accessible by road). Our domain is slightly away from the super touristy areas, but we take you to the most famous spots and to some more secrets ones...
