Palawan is widely acknowledged as one of the few remaining places on earth where you can still experience the natural world at its untouched best.
Banwa’s sought-after exclusivity is enhanced by the marine protected area it sits within, and its marine life and supporting ecosystem is thriving as a result.
When you visit Banwa, you can be assured of the ultimate in privacy and tranquility.
Here, a relaxed and informal luxury combines with exquisite personalised service to provide the private island sanctuary you’ve always dreamt of.
Banwa’s villas have been designed to immerse you in the natural beauty of the island. Floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in, whilst the pool salas, beach and garden terraces create pure luxury of space. With privacy and tranquility embedded as the guiding principles for their locations, each of the six villas are set amidst lush, verdant landscaping to either side, whilst the infinity pools appear to melt into the uninterrupted ocean views.
Banwa Private Island offer an elegant al fresco dining experience in a smart-casual, contemporary ambience.
Our cuisine, whilst overall can be described as ‘World Cuisine with a Local Flair’, takes a particular inspiration from the Mediterranean region.
Chef’s creations are served with elements of Filipino classics and traditional local cooking methods, passed from generation to generation.
Locally sourced Fish and Seafood, Farm-fresh Vegetables and Herbs, harvested from our Organic Garden and carefully selected imported Meat are staple elements in our gastronomic creations.
We focus on a healthy and balanced cuisine with the freshest available ingredients, and create bespoke Vegetarian, Vegan and Ketogenic dishes with a twist.
Apart from a daily rotating menu which are adaptable based on our guests’ preferences, dietary restrictions and cravings, guests can enjoy dining in either Latitude restaurant or the comfort of their villa.
The island offers at a surcharge, in-villa BBQ with a private Chef, and bespoke, elegant ‘Dining by Design’ experiences in various unique locations around the island.
