A rendozous for love and romance !

Romance

What could be more astounding than coming face to face with a clown fish underwater? What could be more breathtaking than watching the orange sun take a dip into the sea at the end of the day? What could be more captivating than watching out for shooting stars from the balcony of your bay cottage while the waves are splashing beneath your feet?

A perfect family getaway

Family

Want to give your children a gift they will cherish for the rest of their lives? Forget about getting them that state-of-the-art home theater system or a flashy new car. Give them a gift that won't gather dust, grow old, or lose its value over time.

Treat them to a Dos Palmas Arreceffi holiday. The memories that come with this magical time with the family are free. And priceless.


Sea food

Food

Although fresh seafood from the waters of Palawan are easily the most popular items on the buffet table, the kitchen staff, our in-house Chef, is equally adept at whipping up other dishes to suit both local and international tastes.

Our different dining venues are designed to make meals satisfying to all the senses. Kara-e-nan restaurant, which can seat up to 200 people, is the main dining venue

But if you want to add even more spice to your meals, you could have breakfast or lunch at one of our huts on stilts right in the middle of the sea!

For al fresco dining, our special dinner buffet is served in a different part of the resort every night.

Kara-e-nan’s bar, Ereneman, is an ideal hangout for wines and spirits once the sun sets.

Board Meeting

Corporate

We strongly suggest that you forget about work while you are at Dos Palmas Arreceffi. But if you really must mix business with pleasure, we have everything you will need for conferences, meetings, seminars, and other corporate activities.

An ecotourism destination

Nature

Have you ever gone swimming alongside a clown fish, paddled through a mangrove forest, or watched a flock of egrets take off into the sky?

These are everyday occurrences at Dos Palmas Arreceffi and we’d like to keep it that way. That’s why we’ve spent millions of pesos to ensure the harmonious coexistence of the Dos Palmas Arreceffi staff and guests with the countless species of flora and fauna that also make this special place their home

Little steps, big results
These are the other steps we undertake to preserve the environment.

Segregation, reuse, and recycling of all solid waste so that none of it is incinerated or dumped into a landfill
Holding of regular coastal cleanup to get rid of trash and sea creatures, such as the crown of thorns, which destroy corals
Prohibition of the gathering of shells and corals on the beaches and reefs around the island
Protection of the 3-hectare mangrove forest in which many varieties of fish breed and thrive
Preservation of sea grass which fish, dugongs, and other endangered species feed on
Prohibition of the use of jet skis that disturb fish, damage corals, and pollute the water with their fuel refuse

We've set up our own Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP) on the island so that our operations won't hurt the environment. We also organize regular clean-up operations and other evironmental projects around Honda Bay, to ensure that the natural beauty of the environment remains unspoiled. Part of our profits are always channeled back to the environment so you can enjoy your stay in good conscience.
