Coron Westown Resort Palawan | Overnight Luxurious Staycation: Coron Island, Palawan

Main Entrance
We are about to leave Franciso B. Reyes Airport/ Busuanga Airport, when Skyjet Airline announced that my flight was cancelled. According to them due to technical problem but according to other passengers, the plane that we’re about to use has not yet departed from Basco Batanes.  

Indoor Garden
The other passengers of Skyjet Airline decided to transfer to Cebu Pacific, I am thankful that my flight was cancelled because I have a reason to stay another night. The two couples, Mr. and Mrs. Lim and Tan talked to me to stay another night and I asked them if it is full board accommodation, they said, “yes” so I rushed myself to the check -in counter and talked to the staff that I don't want to ride in Cebu Pacific so I stayed in Coron for one more night.

We a total of 5 passengers left in Coron, the other 15 are taking Cebu Pacific going to Manila, so we got our check-in baggage at the counter then transferred them to the shuttle van going to Coron Westown Resort. We arrived at Coron Westown resort in 30 minutes because the resort is just near in the airport.

When I arrived at the resort, a beautiful landscape and exterior design caught my eyes. I booked a deluxe room for my overnight stay. My room is spacious, located at the 4th floor of the building equipped with a queen size bed, a working table, air-conditioner, 32" flat screen TV with satellite Chanel, free wifi in the lobby, safety deposit box, Telephone, hot and cold shower, toiletries such as dental kit, soap, shampoo, conditioner and shower cap, coffee and tea maker, mini bar, and complimentary bottle water.

This charmingly room offers to their guest a spacious and modern resort experience with a mountain view behind the resort and measured about 30sqm.

Spacious Comport Room
I slept for awhile after I checked-in so that I have more energy to swim in their friendly swimming pool. The one thing I like about their pool is that you can choose between 3 feet to 10 feet and it's an advantage if you have kids.

Friendly Swimming Pool
They have 4 swimming pools to choose from, in the upper part is 3 feet and 5 feet, the lower part is 4 feet to 10 feet. If you want to relax with soothing bubbles surrounding your aching body. Be pampered by the water jet pool side Jacuzzi, surrounded by comfortable lounges chair and umbrellas for their guest’s comfort.

After an hour of swimming I felt hungry so I decided to have my dinner together with the two couples, we headed to their Restaurant Cafe. We ordered Crispy Pata, Gambas, Garlic Crabs, Mushroom Soup, Vegetable and Rice. Wow! Yum!

Our Delicious Dinner 
We were so full after having that delicious dinner, beforehand I told them that I'm on a budget travel, the 1,700 pesos is shouldered by the Airline and the remaining balance was paid by the couple. I said to myself how lucky am I to stay in the luxurious resort with a very nice company. We went back to the pool to continue our swimming after our spontaneous dinner until 10pm and called it a night.

Filipino Buffet Breakfast
I woke up early to do my short running routine before having my breakfast. They offered a Filipino breakfast buffet.

Freshly slice of Fruits and Pastries  
I’d like to stay more nights but it’s sad because I need to leave the resort, especially Coron Island. I prepared my backpack after my breakfast and waited for the shuttle going to Francisco B. Reyes Airport. That was one experience I would never have expected to want more.

When my friend Paula and I talked about where to travel next, we came to the point about traveling to Japan since the embassy is not too strict it comes to get a tourist visa.

A Chartered Flight of Philippine Airlines | PR 2242 - Cebu to Kalibo

In the past few years, I’ve been into Philippines Airlines flight across the Philippines, but this is the memorable one, a flight that I’ve never ever expected in my whole travel career.
Back then when I was planning my Zamboanga, Basilan, and Tawi-Tawi travels, I was thinking to escape Manila as my transit airport instead I do use Davao on my onward flight to Zamboanga from Iloilo and Cebu as my return flight to Kalibo. I rush myself going to the airport from Cebu City, I miss the 6:40 pm schedule of Mybus going to Mactan-Cebu International Airport, I ride to the 7 pm schedule instead, I was a little bit nervous since my scheduled flight is 9 pm, I got worried about the traffic that will cause of missing my flight, but I made it I reach the Airport 1 hour before my flight schedule.

The last time I depart/arrive at this airport was in 2011 my 1st ever travel. There's a lot of changes and it more beautiful. I headed straight to the check-in counter to get a boarding pass since I check…
