It's a complete package of a very nice ECO friendly resort. The staff was very accommodating, the place never fails to leave you at awe with the sound of birds that you can hear everyday, butterflies flying everywhere and the stories and experience of people from the resort that you hear and share that puts icing on the cake. Truly... More

We had such an amazing time at the secret paradise resort. It was exactly that! Paradise! Staff were friendly and welcoming and there was a good variety of food. Myself and my husband wanted a nice quiet resort to get away from everything and we were very pleased we choose to go there. 2 very happy customers :)

Secret Paradise Resort is a must when going to Palawan in the Philippines. Here you can experience the true nature of this fantastic island. With its remote location only accessible by boat from Port Barton or Sabang you will be able to walk in the surrounding rainforest, sail among turtles in the bay and view spectacular sunsets at the end...

Not an easy place to get to, but it is absolutely worth it. We arrived at Puerto Princesa airport on 30 October from Manila. We flew with Air Asia, and that was a positive experience as well: smooth check-in, smooth boarding and and an early arrival! To get to the resort, we had arranged a transfer via the resort based...

I stayed in Secret Paradise with my family last Monday until Friday. Getting there thru Port Barton was pretty rough. The mountain pass was muddy and stressful specially when it's raining. Boat ride is cool though. I still prefer the Sabang route because of the paved road. When we get to SPRT, we were so amazed with the pristine beach... More

My wife and I spent 3 nights here in the most basic room attatched to the restraunt. They have private huts that are a little more expensive, First of all when you come into the bay the viewes are breath taking and continue to do so for the whole of your stay. All of the four beaches are amazing especially... More
