Our first time to visit Lihim Resorts and it exceeded our highest expectations. The place was awesome and relaxing with world class amenities. The staff were so courteous, polite and accommodating. Noteworthy to mention were Jovy Caldejon, Anne Camille Cordero, Neil Baricaua, Cedric & Arnold (tour guide) and the Captain. We truly had an amazing and wonderful experience. Such a pity we only booked for 3days and 2nights which is so bitin ha ha ! 😁 Can't wait for our next visit ! Kudos and more power to Lihim Resorts ! Truly the best resort in El Nido 👍🏆

From the moment we arrived till the time we left Lihim exceeded all my expectations of a luxury resort hotel. Most specially the butlers made sure they took care of us and they really go out of their way to make your experience a memorable one. It was very relaxing being so close to nature which makes LIHIM so unique. Now, I completely understand why it is called LIHIM because it is the secret paradise of El Nido. I found very private and secluded. We also experienced the seafood lunch in Cadlao Lagoon and got the best sunset views from the lounge of Pinagbuyutan Island. Plus the ARAW Villa so beautiful that you don’t want to leave. Yes it’s admittedly pricey, but you do get your money's worth. Looking forward to visit the Paradise of El Nido (LIHIM RESORTS) again! CHEERS! 🥃🥃🥃

Lihim resorts has been an amazing stay, and they really go out of their way to make your experience a wonderful one. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the staff of Lihim made sure we were well taken cared of - from the little things like taking note of how we like our coffee to sending us the day's projected weather so that we could plan our activities, to the big things like customizing menu items for us and giving extra off-menu food during our tour, to the amazing things such as having a cake and wine waiting for us in our room to celebrate our recent wedding, and having the most amazing bubble bath set up and ready to go (and they even subtly moved us quickly through the check in process to make sure that the bath was still warm when we got to the room), and then surprising us the next night again with a heart shaped blanket sculpture and wood carving of our photo taken just the day before by the staff who picked us up from the airport (and again, we had no idea they were doing this, they made it seem just like another random set of photos) And all of these were expertly handled and arranged by their two amazing butlers Mark and Clyde, who worked very hard behind the scenes (I'm assuming, given how smooth everything went) to make sure everything happened without a hitch. Thank you again Lihim, Mark and Clyde! Hope to be able to visit again soon!

Lihim resort and their massage was recommended by a good friend and we already had good expectations set prior to our trip. But they really went above and beyond, they set up our villa beautifully wih custom pillows, cake and wine when we arrived and a bubble bath was already ready by the time we entered our rooms. We are newlyweds and it was the perfect way to relax after a hectic wedding week. We also thought that was the end of the surprise. After our massage (which was outstanding btw), they then prepared a romantic candlelit dinner in our villa. The next night, there were flowers on our bed with a wood printed photo from the day before. Our butlers, Mark and Clyde, conceptualized our nightly surprises for the most romantic trip ever. The food and cocktails were also amazing. Standouts were the seafood karekare, pan de coco, buko pie, chicken wings and pizza. We are still trying to convince the F&B manager, Mr. Gelo, to sell the pan de coco so we can bring it home. The Cadlao private lounge is beautiful and we had another wonderful lunch there with a chill kayak/ snorkeling day trip. 🥰

Thank you very much, Lihim Resorts, for providing us the experience of unparalleled relaxation and rejuvenation during our 3-day stay. The attention to detail and service provided by our contact, Janica, our butlers, Camille and Jessica, our boat and tour crew, Captain JR, Cedie, and Benson, the chef and everyone else in your resort (Mark, Angelo, the ladies in the spa and gym, the guys who played with our son, etc.) was second to none! You all made us enjoy our stay too much that our son did not want to leave anymore. Food was excellent and it’s great that you have many options for vegetarians (pesce), too. We certainly look forward to coming back!

My husband and I and our 8 month old baby stayed at Lihim Resort for 5 days / 4 nights. First of all the place is absolutely beautiful and we had a spectacular villa with the most incredible view of the islands surrounding. The staff and owner extended the most gracious and incredible hospitality/service to our family while we were there. We went on boat trips every morning, where they surprised us with a crib set up on the private beach so our baby could sleep comfortably !!! How amazing ! They even did little touches that just make this such a memorable trip, including small gifts for our baby and mothers day gifts for myself. The food was very good, we just let the chef prepare us any fresh catch and the meals were always delicious ! All the staff are very polite and service oriented. We definitely would recommend this resort for families, they have a great in-staff nanny Sheeva who was lovely with our baby if you need extra help while you want to relax. Their butlers designated to us JD & Jessica were also great, and one of the managers Anne was also great at creating an itinerary suited to our needs. Thank you Lihim ! We look forward to coming back Kifu & Patrick Augousti-Coard

After getting stuck at home for nearly two years, my family and I were looking forward to a vacation away from home. We decided to go to El Nido, Palawan and chose Lihim Resorts for our stay. We were warmly welcomed by Lihim Resorts. All their staff were very friendly and attentive. Special thanks to our butler Mark, our tour guide Teng, and the rest of the staff who took care of us during our stay. Thank you also Jovy (Manila office) for organizing our trip and made sure everything were well taken of. We stayed at Manlag villa and the room was very nice and spacious. It is also located conveniently, accessible to both the pool and restaurant. Cadlao Lagoon and Pinagbuyutan Island were two of the places that we loved. My kids enjoyed kayaking and viewing the sunset from the lounge. This is definitely one of our most memorable trips!
