Amazing Coron: Forever Summer at Sunlight Hotel & Resort (Part 1)

Are you contemplating on a trip on your next holiday? If you are and you are looking for a place by the beach where accommodations are top of the line, the food is great, the people are friendly and hospitable, and everywhere you look is a sight to behold, then I've got just the place for you.

For those of you who follow me here and on Instagram, you already know that Nicco and I recently went on a four-day trip to cover the soft opening of Sunlight International Hotel and Resort in Coron, Palawan. We both had been planning a trip to the beach and when the invitation came to review the resort, we booked ourselves on the first available weekend flight.

Needless to say, we had the most magical, most memorable time; with an entire island all to ourselves, a cozy villa with a stunning view, a majestic infinity pool, and two beaches just a two- minute walk from our villa. What more could you ask for?

Forget Bali, forget Phuket! Paradise is right here in Coron!


Following is Day 1 & 2 of our trip - a photo travelogue of sorts with descriptive notes along the way. Enjoy!

The 45-minute flight from Manila touched down at Busuanga Airport in Palawan shortly before 4 in the afternoon. Resort personnel ushered us to the boat that took us to Coron Island just in time to catch the dreamy sunset. 
Upon arrival at the resort, we were greeted by refreshing fruity drinks and local folk  dancers.

We had a delicious dinner of seafood paella and panacotta for desert!

This cozy over water villa above the crystalline waters of Coron beach was home during our four-day stay at the resort.

Deluxe room with complete first class amenities, and the most amazing view of the seafront. 

Outfit: top from SFERA, denim shorts from FOREVER 21, mandals from HUE MANILA, bag from SHOP GEORGINE, sunnies from OH!SUNNIES

The huge dining hall is perfect for special events and parties! Oh and they serve buffet breakfast here daily!


Relaxing cabanas with the most amazing view, they're perfect for a quiet day of relaxation!


Pool time after lunch! Look at that view! <3
Bathing suit from WEARSUNDAE
The resort offers complete water sports facilities. Nicco and I got to try our hand at kayaking for the first time!
We ended our day with dinner with the owner of this amazing resort, Ricardo Brito! We couldn't thank him and his wife, Yolanda, enough for their kind hospitality!

Visit their WEBSITE for further details and watch out for their grand opening in early 2015!

Next up on the blog, PART 2 of this post covering days 3 & 4 when we explored the picture-perfect sights around amazing Coron!
