Located within a marine protected area and home to an abundance of rare and vivid flora and fauna, Banwa has six magnificent beach-front villas, each with their own infinity pool providing the utmost in privacy and tranquility.

World-class amenities include a stunning open kitchen restaurant and terrace bar, a spa pavilion featuring floodlit tennis court, gym, massage suite, Pilates/yoga studio and juice bar. There’s a dive centre and short-game golf course too.

Remote, yet not removed, the 6.5 hectare island is accessible via helicopter or seaplane direct to the island from Manila, or via private jet to San Vicente or Puerto Princesa.

Furthermore, short-hop heli transfers from Puerto Princesa make for a stunning guest arrival experience on the Banwa Lawns, after a 1-hour commercial flight from Manila.

Recently voted ‘Private Island of the Year’ in the Destination Deluxe Awards, Banwa’s sought-after exclusivity is more timely and important than ever before.

Guests can opt to stay in any one of Banwa’s six beachfront villas or, for the ultimate friends and family escape, the entire island can be chartered on an ‘exclusively yours’ basis.

Island capacity for 2021 is 22 guests, with a range of individual private villa accommodation to suit couples and families alike.
