If there's ONE place you can go in your lifetime, it's HERE. THIS is the place people post about on Facebook...the ones with the huts on the clear ocean! This is a TRUE, TRUE paradise! We were in the Philippines for a month and this is one of the best experiences ever. The people there are beyond hospitable. (Look for... More

We checked out earlier this week and we did not want to leave and we want to come back! It was seriously worth every cent paid! The best asset to this hotel is the staff! WOW! They were amazing! They all knew who we were and what hut we were from. I am a front office manager at a resort... More

Where do I start ? What a fantastic holiday - right from the time we arrived at the ITI terminal in Manila until we returned there five days later - everything was near perfect. The journey to and from Apulit Island is a wonderful experience. You pass through the town of El Nido , numerous small villages and farmland on... More

Having always wanted to stay in an overwater room my partner researched tirelessly before booking at Apulit. It's the small things you don't notice that make the experience wonderful, but the great staff and activities really complete it!

We were a family of five adult persons looking for a paradise on earth for a weeks vacation with sunbath, beautiful diving sites and very good food. We found it. Despise the fact that the hotel rooms were quite small and not that luxury and the trip out to the island took a long time our stay got a shimmer... More

you can just get lost in its beauty. the forest is untouched. Cabanas was built on stilts on the water, you can even see a baby black tip shark down there... It was fun and relaxing.. cave adventure, snorkeling in the beautiful island nearby with the corrals intact was amazing.. would want to go back again if given a chance... More

Incredible experience. My family and I spent 6 days and 5 nights at the resort while on vacation in the Philippines. Traveling to get there was long (about an hour and half by air from Manila to El Nido, 2 hours by van to Taytay and another hour or so to the island) but the airline and resort staff, especially...

I wanted a warm, relaxing, beach holiday away from the southern Australian winter... And I got it! A friend and I stayed for 3 nights in mid June. It's a bit of a journey to get there, but well worth it if you have the time- The flight is a charter flight (not from the main terminal in Manila) which... More

My family and I wanted to try to experience an island resort and opted to be on the more adventurous island. And yes, Apulit was able to give us the adventure and relaxation we are looking for. When we reached the island we were presented on activities we can try on our stay. We were assisted by their warm and... More
