El Nido Resorts

El Nido Resorts is a group of eco-resorts located in the El Nido-Taytay municipalities in northern Palawan, Philippines.

The resorts offer genuine, local hospitality and unique and enriching experiences amidst the beautiful natural landscape. 

Palawan is an archipelago of 1,780 islands on the western part of the Philippines. It has the highest concentration of islands but is the most sparsely populated region in the country. Because of its scenic landscape and high bio-diversity, Palawan is known as “The Last Ecological Frontier of the Philippines”.

The northern part of Palawan province is blessed with crystal-clear waters, pristine beaches, and a wealth of flora and fauna. It is here that El Nido and Taytay, home of the lovely El Nido Resorts, are located. Spectacular ancient limestone cliffs tower over marine sanctuaries teeming with innumerable species of tropical fish and coral, as well as five species of endangered sea turtle. Lush forests abound with more than 100 bird species. It is a truly exotic destination.

El Nido Resorts is operated byTen Knots Development Corporation. Ten Knots was founded by diving enthusiasts who explored the Philippines on the M/V Via Mare. They believed that ten knots is the ideal speed not only in getting to their dive destination quickly, but also cruising leisurely enough to appreciate and enjoy Nature’s endowments. Thus, the name Ten Knots reflects the company’s ideals to strive for a balance between meeting human needs and caring for nature.

Since its inception, Ten Knots has advocated responsible tourism and has exercised stewardship over its natural environment. For nearly three decades, Ten Knots has strived to maintain a delicate balance between achieving tourism development goals, conserving the fragile environment where it operates, and meeting the needs of the local community.

    STV Super Specials
    What do these rates mean?

    * STV Super Specials are STV's usual SUPER Discounted Special rates, GENUINELY and STRICTLY ONLY available for TRAVEL INDUSTRY Employees resident globally, and are classified as an Employee Benefit. (Available to Airline, Travel Agent, Tour Operator, ATC & Airport Handling Agent Employees)

    * You must be a Travel Industry Employee and you must be registered with STV (Free) to be able to book our STV Super Special rates.

    * Minimum one Travel Industry Employee per room. You are required to present your I.D. / proof of employment on check-in.

    * There is no limit to the number of bookings per year you can book (unless stated otherwise)

    * Friends and Family cannot book STV Super Special Rates. They can accompany you but must stay in the same room as you (some hotels permit an extra room for Friends & Family and if so this will be stated on the hotel page, but you must always be included in the booking and be staying at the hotel).

    * PAYMENT & CANCELLATION: With STV Super Special rates you only need to pay a very small refundable deposit within 14 days of making your booking, or right away if travelling short notice, and the main balance of the booking is paid direct to the hotel, usually on check-in. It is FREE to cancel or amend dates for your booking, often right up to and including the day of check-in, making these rates great for standby travelers (see each hotels payment & cancellation terms). When you make a booking request with STV Super Special rates and it is confirmed, you do not need to go ahead with the booking and can cancel immediately without paying a deposit if you wish.

    * Remember STV Super Special Rates are only available for Airline & Travel Industry Employees as an employee benefit and are the lowest rates you will ever find.

    MORE INFORMATION

    * True Airline & Travel Industry Employee rates are known as ON REQUEST. This means you choose your hotel and Super Special rate and submit your booking request through our website and you will receive a response back from the hotel as soon as possible. Because the rate is so highly discounted, the hotel 1st needs to check if they have enough spare rooms to agree to let you pay these exclusive Travel Industry Employee rates. The hotels will often reply to you the same day but be prepared to wait up to 24-48 hours ~ It's worth it!

    * BEWARE of other Interline/Agency companies telling you they offer Genuine Airline & Travel Industry Employee rates with 'immediate confirmation'! This is simply not true, and you are being misled. Hotels need to manually check their availability for Genuine Travel Industry employee rates and this can take 1-2 days. This is why they are known as ON REQUEST rates.

    * BEWARE. If other companies tell you your Friends and Family can use the same rates as you unaccompanied, you know they are not genuine Travel Industry Rates! No hotels allow Friends & Families to book genuine Airline & Travel Agency Employee rates unaccompanied, so they are simply selling you rates that are also available to the general public through other channels.

    STV have different rates available to Friends and Family to enjoy unaccompanied, they are called STV Direct rates. Because we source such rates in bulk and are the only truly global client and leading company selling holidays to Airline and Travel Agency Employees and their Friends and Family (we have served travel industry employees resident in over 200 countries ~ almost every single country on the planet), we always have the lowest STV Direct rates available anywhere. See STV Direct for these great deals for you and your Family.
