Where Luxury Meets Nature

Secret Paradise Resort & Turtle Sanctuary is an accredited Turtle Sanctuary by the Palawan Council for Sustainable Development and is a partner of WWF-Philippines.

Turtle Bay marine sanctuary is a large 28 hectares which we have been protecting for 12 years. The increase in beautiful corals, tropical fish and sea turtles has been a pleasure to witness. It is a great location for kayaking/snorkelling to see the many turtles and tropical fish in our 2 large house reefs. The far end of our bay opens up another world for divers with deep corals and sightings of manta rays, sea-cow and dolphins etc.

The endangered Green turtle and Olive Ridley turtles are the most common seen in Turtle Bay. Eggs are laid on our beaches from October to March and hatching is between November to May. All year round turtles swim in our protected "Turtle Bay", looking for their mating partner. 34 turtles laid eggs on our beaches 2018, with 2021 baby turtles hatched this year.

Our nature reserve is a large 118 hectares where we combine our accommodation and nature as one. Guest can witness seeing the monkeys, hornbills, kingfishers, parrots and amazing variety of colourful butterflies set in the breath-taking surrounding scenery.

Secret Paradise Resort & Turtle Sanctuary operate with a vision and mission of protecting endangered sea turtles and our surrounding large nature reserve. Highlights of the resort's success include international awards from United Kingdom, Switzerland, Ireland, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, China, Indonesia, Dubai, Qatar, Philippines and Tripadvisor, making it a truly world class international award-winning resort.
