As a certified biyahero, I must say that I am fortunate enough to have stayed with the best of the best holiday accommodations around South East Asian countries.
From the best vacation rentals and houses in Vietnam, affordable luxury private villas in Cambodia down to the unique and wonderful relaxing holiday accommodations in Thailand. I even got the opportunity of invading some of the luxurious resorts and casinos in Macau and the equally modern holiday apartments in Hong Kong, China, to name a few.
But it wasn’t until I stayed in Coron Soleil Garden Resort located in Coron’s Newest Premiere Holiday Accommodation Complex in Palawan, Philippines that I discovered my very own concepts of a perfect holiday accommodations!
Situated in a 6,800 land property in the heart of Coron Island, Coron Soleil Garden Resort is a recently operated Holiday Accommodation Complex comprising a 4-star resort, a 3-star budget hotel and a fancy restaurant offering both luxury and satisfaction to every guest.
Why I loved my stay in Coron Soleil Garden Resort

We were soaking wet when we arrived at the hotel all the way from our whole day tour at the enchanting Kayangan Lake. But the freezing cold that night dissipated due to the warm welcome ushered to us by the hotel’s personnel and staff headed by it’s General Manager, Ms. Kharla Luneta. I was stunned by the stunning architectural presence of the establishment while checking in at the front desk.
At the lobby, we were offered a refreshing welcome drinks by the gorgeous ushers and usherettes of the hotel. While finishing our drinks, Kharla gave as an overview as to how the resort were planned and developed, as well as the future plans for the hotel which are still off the record as of this writing.
