Perhaps the most iconic of all the El Nido Resorts, Miniloc Island is an Eco-Discovery base and is the perfect place for the young and young at heart in search of a fun and vibrant holiday. With a decidedly ‘no shoes, no news’ relaxed atmosphere and with a genuinely friendly and hospitable welcome this is a lovely tropical stay and provides a unique and enriching experience for all who visit.
Set amongst the beautiful islands in the center of Bacuit Bay the resort lies in a cove at the foot of sheer jungle clad limestone cliffs. Here soft white sands run down to the clear blue waters and fringing coconut palms provide shade and greenery to produce a very special Philippines holiday destination.
Miniloc Island Resort offers guests a back-to-basics Filipino coastal village vibe with rustic or native design but accompanied by luxurious touches and the signature El Nido style. The emphasis is very much on the outdoors life and exploring all that the amazing seascapes of Bacuit Bay have to offer. In the shallow waters just off the beach guests can enjoy a whole range of complimentary water adventures including snorkeling, sailing, kayaking,island hopping and paddle boarding.
The house reef is home to turtles, large jacks and many pacific region fish and coral species and is especially good for snorkeling. Miniloc Island is also a gateway to discover and explore the popular islands, coves and beaches in the area including the Big and Small Lagoons, Snake Island and Entalula Beach.
The resort has a total of 50 rooms that are thatched-roofed and furnished with indigenous Filipino materials. Floors are wooden and walls are covered in woven bamboo slats, locally known as sawali. All rooms have a private veranda and are located within the gardens, at cliff side, on the beach or on water cottages directly on the lagoon.
The Clubhouse Restaurant features truly memorable buffet and a la carte dining; picnic lunches, private dinners and romantic private meals on hideaway beaches can all be arranged.
