Here's why this Palawan resort's luxe over-water villas should be your next travel splurge:

Sunlight Ecotourism Island Resort (SETIR) is not new per se. They've been around for a while, and we've already stayed in their cluster villas, Sirakan villas, and other room options during a previous trip. But this January, SETIR is launching its newest accommodations at Naglayan Island, Culion. Dubbed the Salepan Villas, these new room accommodations are the most premium stay at SETIR's 18-hectare island resort.

Each villa is a two-story structure nestled atop the crystal-clear waters of Naglayan Island. Salepan Villas are good for up to six guests. They feature two bedrooms, each with ensuite bathrooms, a kitchenette, a glass-floored lanai and dining area, a four-person private infinity hot tub, and a roof deck with daybeds to soak in the lush, untouched views.

The villas boast a whopping 244 square meter area each. But most importantly, each villa gives guests unprecedented access to the very best views and marine life Culion, Palawan has to offer.

For stays at Salepan Villas, we recommend staying in rather than going out on all-day excursions and adventures. You are, after all,  spending upwards of P80,000 per villa per night for up to four pax. When you book Salepan, we highly suggest maximizing the relaxation time in your villa-your own little slice of paradise. Here, you can arrange spa services overlooking your portion of the ocean or mountainside views, get a bespoke dining experience courtesy of your own private chef, or have a floating snack in the infinity pool while enjoying the gorgeous sights in front of you.
