Sundang is a small sized island that serves as a perfect for a weekend getaway. A beautiful remote island found within a peaceful lake of the Sierra Madre mountains, it’s approximately a three-hour drive from Manila and reachable by a ten-minute boat ride from the mainland.
While guests have the option to cook their meals in the house’s equipped kitchen, they could also go boating, swim on the lake, stargaze, and bike on the well-paved trails. Additionally, there is a ‘dap-ay’ where a bonfire can be set up at night and is perfect to share stories over a beer or two with friends.

1. Brother Island, Palawan

Brother Island is the only exclusive private island in El Nido, Palawan. You can choose between seven bedrooms that can accommodate a total of 12 guests in this house.

Aside from the perfect white beach and soft powdery sand, it also has a virgin jungle, bamboo forest, and fantastic snorkeling sites. They offer services such as a refreshing beach massage, and island hopping.

Finally, the island’s in-house restaurant is where guests can enjoy an all-Filipino cuisine menu. They serve an abundance of fresh seafood thanks to the daily catch brought in by local fishermen.
