As soon as we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. All the info required to make our stay enjoyable and a discount for the spa. Which I utilised and went back again the next day for more.
We had an amazing room with a great view from the second floor. Clean and with everything we needed for our stay.
The breakfasts were great lots of variety. Do yourself a favour and try the pancakes that are made in front of you, so fluffy and light.
We liked a particular dish in the restaurant in the evening so much the chef gave us the recipe. Again plenty of variety so if you are staying a few days you don’t get sick of the food.
There is regular transport to the airport and the mall for free so you are not stuck.
The hotel location is a bit away from the main shops restaurants etc but if you are looking to relax it’s ideal. There is even a shop for necessities like ice cream.

Just check in and everything you'd want will follow. If you want it to be as peaceful as something like reading a book beside an infinity pool or stare at the view overlooking Honda Bay, or as adventurous as daily activities like city tour, visiting El Nido or Underground river, Panja will arrange everything for you. At the end of the day, unwind in the rooftop for some drinks or pass by the convenience store for some midnight snacks.

Had the loveliest stay at Panja Resort, we were recommended by a friend & the views are breathtaking with very kind & friendly staff which helped us throughout our stay.
We would 100% recommend to anybody in Puerto Princess. (One of the best hotels we have stayed at) Also if you book for 3 nights you receive 2 x 1 hour massages & they were amazing too

I’m from Puerto princesa but residing in Australia for 8 years now. We go back every year to visit family. We were told to try Panja Resort in Sta. lourdes and it was by far the best stay in Palawan! A little gateway to escape the city. Terrific views, Lovely staff, Great Food and service, relaxing pool, comfortable beds, what more could you ask for? fast Internet connection? They can provide it too!
Free pick up and drop off to our next hotel as well, which is terrific! I can’t wait for my next visit.
Thank you Panja!
P.S. Being an animal lover, I enjoyed feeding the in-house cats too.

Dear Juliamargarett, We always consider our resort as home away from home. Whatever we try to do is directed towards making our guest stay as Pleasant as possible. Pleasant for us is Relaxing with the tranquility and the nature experience every human being desires. But we also make sure the resort experience is complete with the SPA, Restaurant, Infinity Pool, Garden and Bar. That is why we chose this location as a haven for all the world-weary souls to rejuvenate and refresh their inner beings. The view of nature is a gift from above something every person should witness. From the distance one can see the panoramic views of Honda Bay and its islands - this is one of the tourist destinations where people experience the ocean through Island Hopping. We are also walking distance from Mitra's Ranch and Bakers Hill. We provide free scheduled shuttle service so our guest can also have a choice to tour and see the city. We are only just 10 minutes away from Robinsons Mall and 20 minutes to the airport. This is a minor trade-off for the beautiful nature. For staying with us with your precious time visiting the Philippines is a humbling experience. We truly are grateful. We look forward to your next visit as we continue to transform the place. Enjoy your travels and always take care, Panja Resort Palawan

It was a very pleasant stay. The room were neat and tidy. The aircondition doesn’t sound at all. The staff were very helpful and accomodated. They have shuttle service that takes you to the nearest mall Robinson it goes 5 to 6 times a day. And you get a complimentary 60 mins massage! I definitely coming back here!
