At Lagen Island Resort, a 45-minute boat transfer from El Nido Airport, manager Jen Zafra knows that spectacular natural settings can enhance life’s most romantic experiences.
Here, in a location that’s perfect for savouring tropical sunsets, two high promontories jut into the sea like a pair of mighty arms holding the small settlement between them. Stylish but unpretentious, the resort is a haven of eco-friendly comfort that makes use of its extraordinary location to stage dream-come-true events.
The staff goes to great lengths to design the perfect wedding or vow-renewal ceremony for guests. And locations for private marriage proposals or honeymoon dinners include a rainforest cabana, a floating bamboo raft and a sandbar reached by speedboat.
“Whether it’s a wedding or a marriage proposal, my goal is to make them cry – with happiness, of course,” says Zafra, laughing. “It’s a personal challenge and I have a 98 per cent success rate.”
