What a wonderful stay we had on Flower Island! It was a bit of a trek to get there as we tried a cheaper option (hiring a bangka instead of opting for their speedboat which was quite pricey) but was a little adventure in itself and worth the effort once we arrived! Staff turned up on the beach to welcome us and we found out we were the only people staying on the island with 32 staff! Just an incredible experience. Beautiful cottage with a comfortable bed under a mosquito net. Hammock on our veranda. A lovely dining and bar area. Beautiful beach and free use of snorkelling equipment – we went out for a snorkel just off of the beach and saw loads of coral, fish and even a turtle! It’s so dark and quiet at night and the stars are amazing!! The food was delicious – we are both quite picky eaters and could find something we really liked at each meal. The trip to the pearl farm was brilliant and so interesting. The staff were so attentive and friendly, they couldn’t do enough for us. Wifi wasn’t working when we were there and it was actually quiet nice for us to get away from that side of life for a while but I know might bother some people. Only drawback was that drinks were expensive for the Philippines, including water which is a little frustrating considering you are on an island and there isn’t any other option of getting anything to drink. But the island really is paradise and what you pay isn’t half of what the other off island resorts and is worth every penny. We were really sad to leave! Such an amazing experience to have our own private island for a few days!
