It was a tropic adventure like no other. Voted as one of the best islands in the world, PALAWAN is no doubt just an amazing place to be in. Thinking where to go and what to do is but a step away. At CASA KALAW, they take care of everything.
CASA KALAW is one of the few hotel resorts that is located inside LIO TOURISM ESTATE in EL NIDO, PALAWAN. Developed by AYALA, this 325 hectare land would be home to multiple hotels, sanctuaries, restaurants, malls, eco villages, jetty port, and even an airport. Flying in would be a breeze. With AIR SWIFT, you land in LIO AIRPORT. Just 15 minutes away from El Nido Town Proper and around 2 minutes away from LIO, you're definitely close to where the action is.
One could think of LIO as a town that has everything. Easily accessible and one with nature. It gives comfort to its visitors and is still responsible towards mother nature. Of the 325 hectares, only 55 % would be developed while the remaining land would be remain as open space reserve.
CASA KALAW itself is just a couple of minutes away from the 4km beach front. It started with 42 rooms and would cater mostly to families and balikbayans. Even so, there are a lot of westerners that stay at the resort.
Everything was well thought off. Designed by award winning contractors and artists, this hotel blends in with nature. Indigenous crafts were mostly used to create the design and feel of the resort.
Rooms are well ventilated with the a/c and the ceiling fans. Each has a balcony or a deck just outside the rooms for guests to relax at.
In-room amenities would include coffee, tea, hair blower, and of course cable tv. Hot and cold water makes the shower perfect. No worries for the gadget geeks as there are a lot of wall sockets available for them to use. Internet is not yet steady in the hotel but the wireless LTE connection offered by Globe is fast and reliable.
Furthermore, sustainability is a big part of CASA KALAW. Here, they opted to use reusable vessels as means to store soap, shampoo and other toiletries.
Aside from the pool, everyone could check out the gaming area. Here, they could go for a round of darts, table tennis, billiards, foosball, and other board games to spend the time away.
Breakfast is nothing to worry about as CASA KALAW offers a wide range of items that would cater to everyone's diet. They have fresh vegetables, fruits, meat options, and even an egg/waffle/pancake station. The buffet also serves cereals, cheese, and even hot soup to start everything right.
