I found myself in one of the most enchanting spots in the Philippines, El Nido. This is the 3rd of 6 parts.
Lagen Island Resort was my home away from home for the two nights I was in El Nido.
Lagen Island is set in a lush forest with magnificent limestone cliffs as its backdrop. It has numerous natural coves and is surrounded by pristine waters making it truly a nature lover's paradise. With its secluded location, it is also a popular beach destination for couples and families who put a premium on their privacy.
The moment we set foot on the Lagen property we were treated like royalty...

After the very warm welcome, I roamed the island wanting to discover what it has to offer. I have to say I didn't expect it to be so breathtaking...

When I finished exploring Lagen, it was time to finally settle in my room. Lagen Island Resort has different types of cottages: Water Cottages built on stilts, Beachfront Cottages, and Forest Rooms and Suites found on the fringes of the lush Lagen Forest. I was billeted in a forest room.

Admittedly, for the notoriously high rates one has to spend in order to stay in Lagen, I had loftier expectations for the room. I guess they didn't want to overdo it as this is still a beach resort after all.
TV screens are not provided in forest rooms as El Nido Resorts want a peaceful and tranquil environment throughout the island. Mobile phones are actually even encouraged to be put on silent mode to lessen noise pollution. Also, Wifi can only be accessed at the lobby.

When I was about to leave Lagen Island Resort, I crossed paths with this animal:
