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.
