This Junior Suite (private bathroom, view and balcony) is on Paolyn Houseboat that is located in the pristine, clear and clean water of Laknisan Lagoon, in Coron island, just 500 mtrs from the famous Twin Lagoons and 100 mtrs from Hidden Lagoon, not far from Kayangan Lake. The Lagoon (where we have two houseboats) is 360 degrees sheltered that makes the water perfectly calm. Our Houseboats are the only accommodation and restaurant in Coron island and they are totally Off The Grid.

The space
The JUNIOR SUITE is on Paolyn Houseboat that started operating last December 2017. In our lagoon we have now two Houseboats: Paolyn Houseboat and Bamboo Houseboat (that started operating last April 2018 after a little delay) and they are around 100 meters one from the other (how you can see from the pictures taken from the drone). These Houseboats (that have also an onboard restaurant) are the first in their kind in Philippines and they are located in a pristine lagoon in the limestone island of Coron: National Park, Marine Reserve and Unesco Biosphere site (Coron Island is different from Coron town that is located in another island named Busuanga). We will pick you up at the Coron/Busuanga Airport (or in Coron Town) and bring you to our Houseboats (30 minutes Van plus 30 minutes boat). No pollution, no trafic, no noise. Amazing landscape with breathless landscape with steep cliffs and Karst rock formations made of Permian Limestone of Jurassic origin (that you can almost touch from the Houseboat! and that you can also see from your bedroom and from the tables at the restaurant), it offers superb snorkeling and it is totally quite except birds chirping and splashes of fish. Clean and clear water. It is the only place where to sleep and eat in all Coron Island. You can just jump in the water from the platforms and go snorkelling or you can go with the kayak or the paddleboard (the use of kayak, paddleboard and snorkeling gears if free) to visit twin lagoons that is just the next lagoon. The houseboats are totally indipendent (OFF THE GRID) with 7kw solar panels, 2800 ah of batteries, 4 kw Inverters, 24 h electricity, 24h fresh water, kitchen etc. The Houseboats DO NOT DISCHARGE ANYTHING IN THE SEA. KITCHEN, TOILETS, SINKS AND SHOWERS DISCHARGE IN HOLDING TANKS AND THE CONTENT IS TRANSFERRED DAILY (SOMETIMES TWICE A DAY) BY TWO DEDICATED SERVICE BOATS TO A THREE STAGES SEPTIC TANK BUILT ON PURPOSE ON ANOTHER ISLAND. This is why our sea is not polluted.
DNR from Manila and Coron, PCSD from Puerto Princesa and Coron, Coron Municipal Officers have duly inspected our Houseboats.
You can relax reading a book in the hammocks or take a sunbath alternated with a swim, have a nice meal or a nice drink on the terrace for sunset.
From the Houseboats you can also start and end the islands hopping tours or the indigenous cultural tour to the Tagbanua tribe villages.
We have our own speedboats that can bring you privately anywhere! starting from the famous Kayangan and Barracuda lakes where we will bring you when you will be alone without tourists!! Or to amazing Coral Gardens where to experience stunning snorkeling (Twin Peaks, Seven Picados, Smith Coral Garden, Malwaway Coral Garden, Secret Coral Garden) or to white beaches (Vivian Beach, Awaway Beach, Malcapuia Beach, Banana Beach, Bulog Dos Beach, Ditaiatan beach etc) or to snorkel to shallow IIWW wrecks (Luson Gunboat, Skeleton wreck).
The Paolyn houseboat has three levels. The ground floor has a common aerea with the bar, the kitchen and one bathroom with shower. All around 360 degrees there is a platform from where you can access to the sea trough two ladders and where you can relax and take the sun. The first floor has three bedrooms and one bathroom with a balcony. The top floor has a terrrace with hammocks. The view is 360 degrees.
Paolyn Houseboat has three rooms.
The JUNIOR SUITE, the UNICORN ROOM and the NEMO room. All located at the first floor.
The Junior Suite has a private bathroom and a balcony. The unicorn room has a balcony as well.
The guests of the Unicorn room and of the Nemo room can use a shared bathroom located at the lower level in the restaurant at the ground floor.
If you book the juniorsuite you will have FREE transportation from and to the airport or Coron Town (30 min common van ride and 30 min boat trip).
The transfer for the guests of the Unicorn room and of the Nemo Room from Coron Town to the houseboat and viceversa requires a contribute of 8 usd per way per person (total 10 usd total per way per person if from the airport).

The JUNIOR SUITE is the biggest room on Paolyn Houseboat. It has an internal bathroom and an amazing view. It is the ideal for a couple lokking for some comfort, even with two or three kids. Consider that it is located at the first floor.
If you are looking for more privacy and not to do steps to go in your room, please check one of the Bamboo Suites, they are at the ground floor, they all have internal private bathroom and the privacy in higher since they have eachone its own private open cottage and private platform from where to swim. The Bamboo Suite have also bigger spaces and are perfect for couples in Honeymoon but also for bigger family (till a maximum of 7 people). The Bamboo Suites have also airconditioning (with an extracharge). You can almost jump directly from your bed to the sea!

Bamboo Houseboat have four suites that offer you more comfort and privacy. If you book one of the Bamboo Suite you will have free transportation from and to the airport or Coron Town.

We have also a new amazing GLASS HOUSEBOAT that can be all private for you!
It has an amazing view since the walls on three sides are entirely made in folding tempered glass panels (33!!) without any frame. This means stunning view over 180 degrees around in both cases when the glass walls are opened (since they fold on the sides so the wall is all open!) or when they are closed (since no frame! so you have three glass walls!).

The four Bamboo Suites have eachone a big private internal bathroom (with two sinks, a marine electric toilet and big fresh water shower), a private relaxing sitting aerea (in the shade. it is called Open Cottage) where it is possible to eat or just to rest (may be reading your book with an amazing landscape view) and a private platform where to lay down to take a sunbath or from where to jump in the water and go snorkeling. On the platform you also have a fresh water shower so rinse the salt from your body after a swim!
Each of this suites has a full time free kayak available so you can also freely move to the main houseboat where the restaurant is located (or you can call the staff by a provided and dedicated radio and they will come to pick you up by speedboat!).
So guests sleeping in these new suites can eat in the main houseboat (Paolyn Houseboat) where the restaurant is located at the ground floor or they can ask to eat in their private dining/sitting aerea. It is a nice private open bamboo cottage (of course with roof!!) from where you have an amazing view.
Guests just need to advise the staff so they can prepare all!
If the Main houseboat is not rented privately, guests of the new suites of the Bamboo Houseboat can also enjoy the roof terrace of the Paolyn Houseboat where nice hammocks are located and the front platform where two nice round sofas are located (have a look at the pictures!).
How you can imagine the privacy of these Suites is little higher than the rooms of the main Houseboat (Paolyn Houseboat). The walls of the different rooms are not touching each other so the insulation is higher. One of the suite has airconditioning installed. if you really want it please specifiy it at the booking time but consider that there is an extracharge of 50 usd to use AC from 8 pm to 8 am.

All our rooms (three on Paolyn Houseboat and four on the Bamboo Houseboat) are private in the meaning that you will not share your room with anybody else and have electric fans.

I have been sailing around the world for years. When I arrived in Coron island I fell in love with the nature and I was fashinated from the beatiful Tagbanua Tribe which has owned the island for thousands of years and who are the only ones who inhabit it. This zero pollution project allows our guests to have a unique experience in a dream location and at the same time allows our 32 indigenous employees from the tribe (we have a total of 40 employees for 8 rooms!) to learn a job and earn a salary that is a lot higher of the average salary in Philippines. Our goal is also to do something for this beautiful community and this has become possible thanks to our over 2000 guests who have so far stayed in our little paradise. A big thank you to all of them!!
