This island is uhhh-maaaazzing! I love everything about this island, the resort, the breathtaking views, the activities, the food! It was a memorable stay because my husband proposed to me here! ❤️ I've got so much love for this place, the staff helped out in organizing the private dinner that my husband planned. Everything was excellent! The tours were awesome!...

Chef Carlos... You're the man!!! Our experience was wonderful from start to finish. Lagen Island was recently renovated and the accommodations were minimalistic but beautifully designed and functional in every way. Located in a paradise setting, there are activities that would suit everyone. The "pièce de résistance" of this beautiful resort is their most accommodating staff....!!!

Without asking, a private dinner was set up for us on the jetty by the friendly head chef Carlos, amazing.

We were initially skeptical about the reviews, but by the end of 4th day in Lagen Island, we felt the spell and did not really want to leave the island. We had the Forest Room and we loved it. Clean and well appointed, consistent with the 4.5-5 star rating of the resort. The island hopping activities were truly memorable, Staff...

These islands tower out of the crystal clear ocean they are surrounded by, each one different from the next. The location is a little remote, but the views on the way are breathtaking! A cove emerges and the El Nido resort is revealed. The resort is immaculate, the staff treasures that can't do enough for you. The rooms (a beach...

The Philippines has a history of creating great resorts and letting them fall by the wayside ("Puerto Azul"), but with Lagen that is no longer the case. A 40 minute boat ride from the El Nido airstrip will land you at Lagen, is a beautiful resort nestled in a tiny little bay in Palawan operated by the El Nido Resort...
