Our Story

After his voyage, Kim grasps the mission that his father had assigned to him—informing contemplative travellers about idyllic locations containing exclusive properties, which unveil a true essence of Asia.

Travelling around the Philippines’ last frontier on Palawan’s crystal green-blue waters by boat, I spot Flower Island’s verdant foliage and sparkling white sand beach. A vision of heaven, have I come to share paradise with the gods at this exclusive, isolated retreat? Pretty guestrooms feature private verandas with direct beach access. The simple décor at this quiet escape encourages one to rest both body and soul. The windows in my cottage filter out the sun’s golden high noon rays and a gentle, cooling breeze envelopes me into a soothing bliss. The ever-smiling women that work here pay testament to the wonderful and inimitable Filipino hospitality. Here at Flower Island, one needs little more.

Ideal for adventure seekers and nature lovers, Flower Island is an unforgettable experience. I take an exhilarating trek along the nature trail that meanders around the island, stopping along the way to soak in the panoramic views at the peak. In an attempt to protect the land, my passionate host takes me on a fascinating visit to his pearl farm to teach me about the Philippines' national gem.

Book in hand, I rest in a hammock and bask in the sun. Later, I borrow a mask and some fins and head out to experience the abundant local marine life. A feast of colour, the island’s protected reefs are home green turtles, pygmy seahorses, angel fish, and infinite other tropical fish. The nearby marine reserve is equally vibrant. I enjoy other watersport activities including kayaking and paddle boarding, and then relax over a rejuvenating massage at the resort’s spa.

That evening, I sip delicious cocktails at the Pearl Diver’s Bar (Espigao’s Bar) and watch the glorious sunset under the coconut trees by the water’s edge. I dine in the airy, spacious restaurant, and savour fresh pearl oysters, followed by grilled barracuda with limejuice, complimented by delicate and fragrant rice grown in the mountains. Delightful.

Is it not said that flowers are the only accessible stars? A miracle during the day, Flower Island offers an equally unforgettable experience at nightfall. After a late night swim, I lie in the dark and marvel at the starry sky, the words Van Gogh once wrote in a letter to his sister echoing in my ear: "It often seems to me that the night is much more alive and richly coloured than the day.”

Nenith Nacarion from Flower Island shares with us:

"This resort was built in harmonic balance with nature in one of the world’s most preserved archipelagos. We open our doors to nature lovers, where we have continued to protect the flora and fauna in the surrounding area since the 1980s."
Secret Retreats Host Puppet China and South East Asia
All of our properties are family owned—their captivating spirit is embodied by their hosts who often dwell there themselves. Illustrating this family spirit, Secret Retreats has commissioned Indonesian artist Edward Pasaribu to design a range of traditional puppets that reflect the inner essence of true Asian hospitality. Each region has its own special puppet.
