According to color phsychology, "BLUE is a color that seeks peace and tranquility above everything else, promoting both physical and mental relaxation.
It reduces stress, creating a sense of calmness, relaxation and order - we certainly feel a sense of calm if we lie on our backs and look into a bright blue cloudless sky. It slows the metabolism. The paler the blue the more freedom we feel. "
With so many hotels and resorts in Puerto Princesa, BLUE PALAWAN certainly lived up to expectation of many, including myself as I got invited to stay at this beautiful resort located in Puerto Princesa.
Opened just few months ago, Blue Palawan is more than ready to give their guests a feeling of tranquility and peace making it a memorable experience for all those visiting the island.
After an 1 hour and 20 minutes flight from Manila to Puerto Pincesa, a van was already waiting for us at the arrival area.
To my surprise, we were also given mineral water and cold towels to freshen up after our flight. It was to be a foretaste of our stay at Blue Palawan.
The trip from the airport only took us 15 minutes to Blue Palawan which was so convenient. And as we arrived at the resort, my first impression was WOW!
Welcome drinks await each guest at the resort.
The people at the front desk were very friendly and very accommodating to all the needs of their guests.
When I arrived at the place, I couldn't take my eyes off the little details in the resort. Especially when we sat at the dining area, I kept looking up because those bamboo ceilings were very eye-catching!
Talking about details, I liked how the interior did not clash with nature. Instead, it blended perfectly creating a harmonious and relaxing place.
The chill vibe music of Blue Palawan plus a drink or cocktail in their lounge area gives guests a feeling of what vacation should be like - pure relaxation!
Another favorite of mine is their infinity pool which can be found as you enter the dining area. Being the main focal point of the resort, it creates a soothing and calming atmosphere. I just want to take a plunge!
A perfect place where every one could just grab a book, get a tan and just unwind.
Fill your taste buds with their delicious food on their menu that only Blue Palawan could offer. A fusion of Filipino cuisine with a twist making it more delicious and something you would crave for again and again.

The Blue Palawan experience is not complete without checking their accommodation. The resort has 23 beautifully inspired rooms that would surely suit the taste and style of every guests.
When staying here, expect be greeted by the beautiful and calm white beach at Blue Palawan . All 26 rooms are situated facing the beachfront adding more the bliss of this place.
Since we are in a big group, we stayed at the BLUE SURF ROOM. This room can accommodate a big group since they have 8 single beds and two bathrooms.
Enjoy a peaceful sleep or nap on their custom made memory foam beds and pillows that will support your neck. I normally complain about pillows being too soft in other hotels, but the ones here at Blue Palawan are just perfect!
On my last day at Blue Palawan, I woke up pretty early and decided to stroll around the beach area. If only I had more time, I would like to get a massage at this cabana facing the beach and enjoying the cool breeze from the sea.
When the tide is high, Blue Palawan offers a lot of recreational activities such paddle boarding, kite flying, kayaking and many more.
The place, the location, the service, the food, the ambiance and of course the experience really goes beyond my expectation.
Part of travelling was meeting new people and that's what happened. I came to Puerto Princesa for the first time and we later got a long and became good friends.
Now, if you are seeking a place of total relaxation and tranquility in Puerto Princesa, Blue Palawan is the place to be!
This is when BLUE becomes not just a color, but a wonderful experience!
