Funny Lion El Nido
EL NIDO, Palawan — One-Of Collection is excited to launch a new Palawan project under its much-loved brand, The Funny Lion.
El NIdo’s postcard-perfect landscapes continue to draw visitors locally and internationally. The island is renowned for its limestone cliffs, numerous scenic islands with pristine pockets of white-sand beaches, breathtaking lagoons, reefs, dive spots, and distinct wildlife.
The Funny Lion, Palawan’s top hotel brand, is set to open its doors in El Nido on December 10, 2022. Eight years after the brand was first introduced in Coron, it has built a reputation as one of the best in the Philippines because of its unique personalized service. Offering a signature brand of fun and friendly service, the well-loved brand in Coron has been repeatedly recognized by Tripadvisor as the Travelers’ Choice and the rated number one hotel in Palawan. Guests can expect nothing less than the best from the newest property.
The Funny Lion El Nido may be reached via a 75-minute domestic flight to Lio Airport and a 20-minute drive to the property. Nestled right in the heart of El Nido Town, this 4-star boutique hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants, bars, dive shops, boat tour operators, and souvenir shops. Its central location makes the island’s sights and local happenings easily accessible to guests.
The Funny Lion El Nido showcases 50 guestrooms that are made with wandering friends and couples in mind. Going around the island to explore its many sights can get tiring at times, so the property made sure that guests have a premium space to return to at the end of the day.
