The website now claims it will open in '2013' but is not more specific than that.
It has 80 over water bungalows, not 85. If my bearings are correct the island is southwest of Busuanga Airport.Edited: 6:32 am, February 02, 2013
As far as I know, the schedule *is* still for 1Q2013, but not much more than that.
Also, the targeted no. of bungalows was 82, as far as I know...
They've prioritised the renovations over at their Cebu property, which "soft re-opened" in mid-December last year.
My Husband and I are looking at going to Philippines next Jan 2014 and wanted to find a luxury resort that offers a good snorkelling reef? Would Huma Island fit the bill? Their website doesn't offer a 'contact us' option?
stephy, from the publicity, it may fit the bill.
I would not panic. It will open in due course. It is in the interests of the property owners to encourage bookings so you should expect the website to be up and running in the next few months.
Possible alternatives include the soon to reopen luxury resort on Pangalusian Island or the new resort at Dedon Island Resort http://www.dedonisland.com/en/
along with long established Sumilon Island Resort at the bottom of Cebu island (closer though to Dumaguete City on Negros) or Amanpulo.
I'd go fpor one of the newbies if your budget allows.
I've seen posts and pictures of local celebrities and other TV personalities spending vacation at Huma Island (e.g. Rajo Laurel, Liz Uy, Biana Gonzales etc) thru instagram (#humaisland). The resort has indeed opened. I'm getting married in August and I would like to have my honeymoon here. But to date, I can't find any contact information where I can get the resort's rates. Their website doesn't show anything but pictures. :(
You can contact them through email@example.com 9286071840 [smart]
It will be fully operational on Oct. 2013 hope it helps
open on June 2013， according to Phil Star newspaper.http://www.philstar.com/headlines/2013/04/02/925952/swiss-resort-hotel-open-palawan
Not yet open? I saw a couple of people stay here (they posted photos on Facebook) during holy week.
Is there any updates ? Couldn't find anything online nor the movenpick site .. It seems like THE perfect honeymoon location :-)
