Indulge in a stay at one of the world’s last frontiers of biodiversity. Banwa Private Island is located in north-eastern Palawan within a marine protected area. This provides the hideaway gem with its sought-after exclusivity, breathtaking views, pristine beaches, and access to the turquoise waters of the Sulu Sea. Not only does Banwa Private Island support the thriving ecosystem, but it also provides sanctuary for a large number of incredibly rich and diverse flora and fauna in the area.
Access to the island is remote but not removed. Seaplanes, private jets, and helicopters from Manila and Clark International Airports take guests straight to Banwa’s doorstep. Guests can enjoy a stay at any of their well-appointed, modern villas laid mere steps away from unspoiled shores. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outdoors inside and vice versa. There are beach and garden terraces designed specifically for endless summer days. The private infinity pool appears to extend seamlessly out into the ocean. By sunset it mirrors the fiery skies of Palawan’s famed sunset.
Dining is an experience at Banwa that allows guests to take in flavors of the island. Private chefs whip up dishes and culinary gems that showcase freshly-grown ingredients from the island’s own organic farm. The cuisine at Banwa is best described as ‘world cuisine with local flair” and takes particular inspiration from the Mediterranean region.
Dive into the water and discover a world of rich marine life and gorgeous coral reefs or stay above water with kayaks, paddleboards, and Hobie sailboats on the endless stretch of sea. The nearby isles surrounding this private island also offer a wealth of remarkable island experiences–nights lit by dancing fireflies, treks to off-the-beaten paths, a cool dive into undiscovered waterfalls, romantic sunset picnics on a sandbank and deep sea expeditions.
Banwa Private Island was most recently featured in National Geographic Traveller (UK): The Islands Collection 2022 list. In 2019, it was cited by CNN as “among the most expensive getaways anywhere in the world.” For more information, visit http://www.banwaprivateisland.com.
