Caluwayan Palm Island Beach Resort is located in Barangay Caluwayan, Marabut Samar.
Travelling is no longer the same as to what it was before the pandemic. A lot of people lost their businesses. With the closure of hotels, resorts and establishments – most people lost their jobs, worst their livelihood. It was really tough. Now that we were slowly trying to recover, the government finally re-opens local tourism with strict health-safety protocols. Let’s be part of that and help our economy even in a small way we can. Since, we can’t go to other places, why not support local tourism. You might discover beautiful places just within your hometown. In our case we found Caluwayan Palm Island Beach Resort.
The resort is an eco-tourism oriented resort surrounded by a breathtaking view of towering rock islands and islets within the secluded coves. The resort offers snorkeling, kayaking and boat ride. They also have a pool, bar and a restaurant.

Enjoying Caluwayan Palm Island Beach Resort
Upon arrival and settling our stuff in our room. We avail the free 30mins boat ride for those who checked-in. We really did enjoy the tour within the surrounding islets. I can’t help it but appreciate and be amazed by God’s wonderful creation. And also thanks to kuya boatman who tour us around the Island. Very accommodating and friendly.
This is probably where we spent most of our time. The beautiful and clean infinity pool gave us the view of the ocean while swimming. It can be accessed from 8AM to 9PM. Proper swimming attire is a must. Our swimwear is from @iwear_apparel_ph in instagram.
Beach villas and rooms
We booked a family room and is located just in front of the pool. It actually quite spacious and clean. Room rates is available below.
Restaurants, Bistro Bar and Beach Cottages
Bringing food is not allowed but you don’t have to worry because they have restaurant inside. You can order and dine inside or request to have your food served in one of the cottages in front of the beach.
They asked us to pre-order food before 5pm and will serve it 7pm onwards. We had our dinner served outside the restaurant so we could listen to the band in the bistro. Had a few drinks before we call it a night. 🙂
They only limit the guests, so booking in advance is a must. Wearing a mask within the resort is strictly followed and can only be removed during swimming and when you eat.
In compliance to the Health & Safety Protocols prescribed by the Department of Tourism Agency, their ROOMS’ OCCUPANCY has been reduced. Only SINGLE up to DOUBLE room occupancy is allowed. COUPLES or FAMILY MEMBERS who share the same household may be allowed in DOUBLE or TWIN occupancy rooms.
You can also booked through Agoda for the reservation. Please use the link above.
Our stay is actually the perfect relaxation we need during this pandemic. The staff are all nice and accommodating….We highly recommend this place. We wanted to visit again…for sure, there will be a next time!
