“It’s easy, breezy and absolutely beautiful. Ringed by coral reef and clear waters, and covered with powdery white beaches and mangrove forest, the setting is gorgeous and the villas are something to shout about. We like how easy everything about at Nay Palad is; everything here - from the fresh seafood to the massages - is included in your stay which means that stress levels hover somewhere below zero.”
A palm-fringed paradise in the Philippines, naturally sheltered from the tropical wilderness all around it, enchanting Nay Palad portrays barefoot luxury at is best. The emphasis is on outdoor living and sustainability, and this resort cleverly blends traditional architecture, cutting edge design and the natural surroundings.
Nine large and stylish thatched villas are dotted across manicured gardens within the four-acre property. Each has been built using recycled wood and features an open shower, large veranda and contemporary interiors.
Away from the rooms, guests can laze by the pool or lounge around in hanging pods scattered throughout the property. There’s an outdoor bar, a trampoline and two pagodas - one in the mangroves and one in the sea. The stylish spa is decked out in handwoven furnishings and is particularly atmospheric at night.
Relaxed dining of fresh local dishes takes place in the restaurant or on the beach.
