One can easily be charmed and captivated with the bevy of information and how it is presented on Mangeguey's website. The seeming mystery is intriguing; the prospect of peace and privacy away from the crowds very much alluring. This is what drew us to book a 1-week stay at Mangenguey. Upon booking, we received the confirmation email with some guidelines...

This was such an incredible experience, i don't think you'll be able to find this anywhere else. We had the yellow two room hut on the beach which had a lovely view and was really nicely decorated. my boyfriend was afraid he'd get bored but there was plenty to do. We hiked around the island, went snorkelling, and there are...

The island is really a spectacular and magical place to stay. The natural beauty and unspoilt surroundings create a wonderful romance. There is an interesting concept of the resort- huts made of natural materials like bamboo and mud, chic and simple decorations which maintain the island charm. The island is owned by hosts Richard and Helena. They try to create...

We spent a magical last week of a two week holiday at Mangenguey Island. It felt like our own tropical paradise being pampered by exceptional service and indulging in delicious cuisine. We had heard so much about Mangenguey that we were desperate to get there after staying in an overcharged resort in El Nido. Anticipation was built up further when...

I've been back from Manguenguey Island for a month a half now and I still have a hang over :-) All I can say is that it is truly an island paradise, perfect for that weekend getaway. At first, when I read about this, it gave me an impression that this may be some sort of luxurious resort and my...

Amazing beautiful Island, stayed there for 3 nights and enjoyed the magic place, even a moonlight at that time ! Just relax, enjoy snorkeling, swimming and excellent food. The Chef is amazing and he can satisfy all gourmets. Many thanks to the staff and Angela was always available to make this (far too short) stay a paradise island.

The island is very exclusive. It is the perfect place for peace and quiet. The best place to relax and feel uninhibited. Food is excellent and service is two thumbs up. Mangenguey is a perfect place for friends, honeymoon and family vacations. You should not miss it if you're in the Philippines.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mangenguey is truly like no other place in the world. It is intimate and private, a destination that blends the incredible beauty of untouched Nature with culture and art. The island is a perfect location to create a new vision of Utopian living and redefined luxury for the twenty-first century. Mangenguey is an exquisite and remote Virgin Island comparable in natural beauty to the best in the world; it is located in the Calamianes archipelago in Northern Palawan, Philippines. It is right at the center of the Coral Triangle, one of the world's richest marine biodiversity zones. Getting There. Mangenguey is 45 minutes away from Manila, Philippines by plane. There are regular daily flights to Busuanga airport via Air Phil Express, Cebu Pacific, or SKYJET.Upon arrival at Busuanga Airport, guests take a thirty-minute drive in an air-conditioned van or private car (with additional charge) that takes them to Coron Town. In Coron, guests board our native banka for an approximately 1-1/2 hour (depending on sea conditions) beautiful scenic journey to the island. Airport transfers are $65/ trip and include land and sea transport. We recommend a minimum stay of three (3) nights for guests traveling from not so distant locations, and a week for guests coming from far away. Food and Beverage: The dining experience on Mangenguey is like no other: fresh sea air to stimulate the appetite, gorgeous views of the ocean, superb cuisine, warm and friendly service, and interesting conversation. Helena's simple and approachable Catalan-inspired cuisine is definitely one of the highlights of the Mangenguey experience. Gathered around the gracious table for communal dining or "al fresco" in the garden, meals in Mangenguey reflect the distinctive character of Helena. Shaped by her Spanish childhood and her years of travelling throughout different continents, combined with her knack for using local ingredients, each meal on Mangenguey is a unique epicurean adventure and pleasure for the senses. All guests are served 3 gourmet meals a day for a fee per person, per day. We accommodate "Special diets" provided advance notice and at an additional charge per day per person. Guests can also enjoy a variety of classic cocktails and a selection of wines, spirits, and beers. A truly luxurious moment on the island is the pre-dinner drinks at the Big House: sip the house champagne or our Signature Cocktails as tantalizing aromas waft from the open-style kitchen while Helena's cooks. Entertainment. Guests can swim and snorkel in the reef, paddle around the island in native bankas, bird watch, or trek through the forest. They can read on the veranda facing the sea, play pool in the Big House, or watch the sunset while sipping champagne and listening to Maria Callas. The adventurous can dive or snorkel in the magnificent house reef or in the turquoise waters surrounding the island. We customize island hoping and diving tours on our comfortable bankas to fit your desires and interests that come complete with gourmet picnics and butler service. Our private diving trips must be booked in advance with our Dive Master. Experience the beautiful reefs and the Japanese wrecks. We can plan a perfect diving experience based on your skills and desires. Private diving courses may also be arranged. ... more   less

“We liked the Crimson room for the value, and the fun decor. The bathroom reminded us of a treehouse. The huge balcony afforded great views of the ocean.”

“The beach cottages (Crimson/Azur and Mimosa) are the best located. Rooms in the main house are nicely done but not very 'authentic'. Rosa 1 and 2 are in a poor location.”
