« Another hour later, we arrived with jaws dropped as we soaked up our new surroundings in one of Asia’s most beautiful, least crowded and most sympathetically developed destinations – the Bacuit archipelago, more commonly known simple as El Nido. » – Philip Sherwell of The Telegraph UK – Travel
Described by Architect Onglao as a Timeless Coastal Charm, El Nido Resorts’ Eco-Sanctuary resort, Lagen Island, reopened last December and is as breathtaking as ever. The structures and designs were conceptualized by Architect Onglao to complement the natural beauty of the island. Now introducing an unsullied impression and ambiance, Lagen Island redefines a new level of luxury.
For Architect Onglao, light is essential to his designs and this urged him to open up all the spaces to allow the guests to see the beauty of Bacuit Bay. The re-designed villas showcased views of the environment with lush trees and the astonishing backdrop of the mountainside.
