When you venture out of town what do you usually look for? What kind of escape do you need? After a few busy months of life in the city, seeking the right amount of serenity and stimulation is almost next to impossible. Where do you go?
The Lio Tourism Estate a 325-hectare eco-tourism development created by the AyalaLand Hotels and Resorts (AHRC) and Ten Knots Development Corporation (TKDC) sits on what is known as one of the “Best Islands in the World” – El Nido, Palawan.
Fly from Manila and land directly at Lio Airport through local flights via AirSWIFT and get to enjoy the beach faster than if you drove out of the city. With El Nido just an hour flight away and Lio Beach barely a 5-minute drive from the Lio Airport there’s no better way to spend your long weekends and holidays.
Here you can find three boutique hotels to choose from – Hotel Covo, Balai Adlao, and Casa Kalaw; each of these hotels with their own distinct design and culture catering to those travelling with friends, a partner, or family members.
You’ll not only be greeted by excellent service and world class amenities but you’ll get to explore the entire estate through carved pathways and beautiful bridges. Indulge in a wide range of restaurants and bars, and experience a number of relaxing land and water activities like standup paddle boarding or beach volleyball.
With the estate’s newly opened hotels, Casa Kalaw has already been recognize and awarded by the Travel and Hospitality Awards with the Sea View Guest House of the Year 2018 of Mimaropa.
Despite the quick growth and development plans for the estate that are slated until the end of 2019, AHRC and TKDC continue to work together to create not just resorts and hotels but thriving communities in the Philippines.
