The staff was very comfortable in a friendly and tidy room. Relaxed in the outdoor pool. The delicious breakfast at the restaurant with a great view was also good. The cold beer with music on the rooftop is also a good memory.

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.

Staffs are very helpful and accommodating. Very nice to rest and stay, because location is in the city but far from the noise of traffic.
We had our dinner in the place and it was amazingly delicious. My parents really enjoyed the fiesta meal.
View is a factor also.

Will definitely return with family.

Dear MimiBebu,

We are delighted and very happy with your review. Your review is shared with the team and everyone is likewise elated.

With every guest we always try our best to provide the best customer service possible - we treat all our guest as a friend or family from a distant land who paid us a visit and that is why we are happy and privileged.

We especially choose this location because of the the rural and top of the hill setting with the mountains at the back side and the magnificent views overlooking Honda Bay on the other - definitely away from the noise of the city life.

But for that we are still conveniently within reach of the airport (20 minutes), Robinsons Mall (10 minutes) and other tourist destinations such as Mitras Ranch (300 meters or 10 minute walk), Bakers Hill (500 meters or 15 minute walk) and Honda Bay (10 minutes van).

We are glad you enjoyed the food and we look forward to your next visit.

Again from all of us best wishes and many thanks,

Panja Resort Team

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

We stayed at Panja Resort 1/4/20-1/7/20 for my daughters 30th birthday trip. The resort is a little away from downtown and that is fine. It will cost you to go back and forth for tours, but that was not a big issue. The city was too crowded and had too many cars. The resort is in the lush countryside and has a beautiful view of bay.

Check in was quick and efficient. I forgot they had a shuttle to the hotel from the airport, so I was very relived and happy to have the driver look for us at the airport with a big sign! After about 30 minutes we arrived at the hotel. The kids were so excited because the hotel entrance is designed to open up to the beautiful view. We checked in and went to the restaurant and sat on the balcony. It started to rain and then really pour, but it was sooo cleansing and peacefull and then it was over. My kids have never experienced rain like in the PI. I got really emotional because it was a homecoming for me. The staff assisted us in booking all our tours and answered all our questions. They also helped us book a private van to El Nido. Princess was very helpful. The food at the hotel was sufficient and we did not go hungry. The breakfast buffet was included and opened at 6. Around 7 they start the omelet and pancake bar. There is a roof bar, but I did not check it out. It is a quiet hotel so if you're looking to club, you'll need to go to the city which is really not far. I would not stay downtown. We did look to see the quality of hotels closer to the city and we all agreed we'd rather take a tricycle into town and stay at Panja. The rooms were sufficient. The beds were hard and the room had a slight smell. The bathroom was clean. However they need to work on restocking supplies a little better. However this was something that I came across at most of the PI hotels we stayed at. I do think it's a cultural difference, not bad, just different. The staff did correct the issues quickly and they do work very hard. The infinity pool was very nice! However the highlight of the hotel is the SPA!!! We got a massage every night!!. The spa is sooo gorgeous. It's off to the side. They first wash your feel in flowers and rub calamansi fruit all over them to freshen them up. It was like $20 for 90 minutes. They were all uniformed, well trained, and incredibly polite! It was so wonderful! All the girls were so sweet. Each massage ended with a delightful tea.

All in all, I would stay there again. Panja was a good value. They do understand they are not in the city, and the resort does try to make up for it. The staff was friendly and worked very hard.

Dear aycandy,

We truly appreciate that you choose to stay with us. It is part of our pursuit that people would be able to experience rustic living in the mountains with the tranquility that nature provides. Modern life demands that people find life in the city with all the noise and traffic but it is always the desire and nature of every human being to be at peace and to find peace. Also, we are truly blessed we have the perfect view of Honda Bay with 360 panorama of the Islands and the ocean horizon. A few minutes would not matter for the trade-off more than compensates.

We are seriously taking note of every review and comment and we are humbled by the appreciation. As a way to give back and repay the compliments, we will maintain what our guest like with our service and further improve what we can. Continuously as you may have seen, we are doing repairs and maintenance on every aspect as we can. Our project this year is to make our garden more bountiful and full of plants and flowers. It is now able to supply organic vegetables and fruits which is being used by our kitchen.

We are a resort hotel, so we always strive hard to provide the best all around experience. From the arrival, check-in, to the comfort of the rooms, to our spa service, restaurant and 360 bar up until check-out and in between all the other activities. We cannot be perfect but rest assured we will try our very best to serve every guest the best way that we can.

In behalf of all the staff of Panja Resort, we thank you to the deepest of our hearts. See you again soon.
