There is a lot more to Two Seasons and it’s special location than just the obvious, jaw-dropping beauty.

Stay at the exclusive Sandbar Bungalow if you get the chance. It’s complete with rain shower, private beach cove, and outdoor heated jacuzzi- perfect for chilling in and watching the stars at night.

Once you’ve had your fill of snorkeling and swimming at the resort, and after you’ve taken a kayak out to watch the dolphins play as the sun goes down, be sure to book a unique recreational package so you can explore what many call “The Last Frontier” of the Philippines. Check out Twin Lagoon, Kayangan, Barracuda Lakes, and snorkel at Skeleton Wreck. You’ll work up a healthy appetite and will be happy to eat your delicious lunches waiting for you at Beach Cove.

It was successful and I enjoyed the project so much that I temporarily quit our bearing business and decided to expand the resort. Two Seasons Coron Island Resort was completed in 2012 and now we’re in the finishing stage of Two Seasons Bayside Hotel in Coron Town.
