We had planned our honeymoon in Aman Pulo, but our wedding expenses made us reconsider the venue for our first getaway as husband and wife. We thought about it for a bit and decided that maybe it’s a good time to spend this special time somewhere that’s unbelievably beautiful but familiar as well. Coron, Palawan seemed like the perfect destination.
Coron recently gained more attention due to the report of Nickelodeon’s supposed plans to build an underwater theme park there, which has gotten social media in a stir. Whatever you may think of that idea, Coron is such an achingly beautiful place as is.
It was a four days and three nights of fun and wonder with my husband in Coron. Our first day was spent in Coron Westown, but we then opted to transfer to Two Seasons the next morning. The transfer itself was free, excluding fees for the speedboat and the van to get there.
Two Seasons Coron is paradise on earth—a private island with modern amenities—located 22 kilometers away from Coron Town, at the Malaroyroy Peninsula in Bulalacao Island. It’s around half an hour away from the airport, accessible by speedboat. Once you get there, there are 42 bungalows that await guests, situated along the hillside.
Each Island Tip bungalow has an open veranda with outdoor jacuzzi, perfect for lounging and relaxation under starlit skies at night. The rooms are pretty big with high ceilings, hardwood floors, big TVs, jumbo showers, free minibar, and many other amenities.
Some may be more coveted than others, but all of them are more than sufficient for making your stay as comfortable as possible, and all of them feature a gorgeous view.
We had booked for a Mountain Bungalow room at first, but we then chose to make it a bit more special for our honeymoon by upgrading to the Island Tip Bungalow, adding PhP 20,000 to what we already paid. That may seem like a lot, but the delicious food, numerous amenities, and the amazing view made it all worth it.
There’s much fun to be had outside of the bungalows as Two Seasons has one of the best beaches in Coron. The surrounding waters are perfect for kayaking and snorkeling, and you can rent a Molokini or Hydrobob by the hour if you wish. There’s also a 600 sqm. swimming pool with a swim-up bar for those who just want to take a dip.
The beaches of Bulog Dos Island is known for turtles, so watch out for them when you’re exploring that part of Coron. You may also take tours with professional guides for diving excursions and island hopping if it’s your first time there and you want to see more of Coron first hand.
If you want to just relax and recharge, the Narra Spa and the health club atop the hill has facilities to help your body feel better. You can get a massage or have a workout while looking out at the most magnificent view from high up that Coron has to offer.
Dining options are fantastic as well. You can go to Sulu Restaurant for a fabulous selection of foreign and Filipino heritage dishes, and you can also avail of fresh lobster from the catch of the day. You can also order breakfast in bed, which is especially great here since you get to eat while looking out the view of the shore. There’s also the Bahura Bar for cocktails at night, and you can play billiards there as well.
All of this is made possible by Two Seasons Coron being a fully self-sustaining island resort, which makes sure that people can enjoy all these amenities without it being at the expense of Mother Nature. Their eco-friendly facilities provide 5-star guilt-free service to guests.
If you wish to book a stay in Two Seasons Coron, prices start from PhP 30,000 per night during peak seasons. These rates include round-trip transfers and all the amenities mentioned above. The views are great, the bungalows are luxurious, and service is top notch.
Take note that it’s pretty far from Coron Town itself, but that should be no problem if you’re there to get away in the first place. Also, the tours can be fairly expensive, so you may want to think about whether you really want to see more of what’s arguably one of the most breathtaking spots in Palawan.
While it had to end, our honeymoon wasn’t without great memories thanks to Two Seasons Coron. Having been to Coron five times already, we chose not to book for tours. We were simply there for a good time, and it was indeed splendid. There was no other way we could’ve spent our honeymoon, and it was definitely money well spent.
