Where to stay in El Nido

Tropical postcard-worthy scenery makes El Nido a blissful escape no matter where you are. But there’s something extra special about Seda Lio, winner of the 2023 Travel Excellence Awards by TripZilla – Resort Star. Nestled on the unspoiled shores of Lio Beach, this seaside resort is the pick of travellers who want the best of both worlds — relaxing in a serene oceanfront retreat away from the city bustle, while enjoying world-class facilities and impeccable five-star service worthy of a seasoned globe-trotter. 

Seda Lio features 153 rooms, each one tastefully designed and decked out with a private balcony overlooking garden or pool views. During the day, one might lounge by the pool, get pampered at the spa, and enjoy fresh seafood at Misto restaurant. Plus, the pristine Lio Beach is the perfect setting for tropical activities like swimming, snorkelling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and windsurfing. And of course, you’ll have to go island hopping to witness the awe-inspiring lagoons and coves dotting Bacuit Bay.

We’d love to pack up our lives and move to El Nido. But since it’s not possible (yet), a vacation at Seda Lio is the next best thing. Without further ado, here are the El Nido photos that will inspire you to fly to Palawan ASAP!
