The space
Thank you to Philippine Airlines for mentioning us as the Philippine Robinson Crusoe in your Philippine Airlines In-Flight Magazine :)

Here on Brother Island we are most appreciated for our exclusive private island experience. No other guests during your stay, and maybe the best way to get away from the rat race.

We have a huge white beach that changes shape every season. The ancestral house designed by Lolo Fermin in 1991 has 7 bedrooms, 2 shared bathrooms, 2 extra toilets and 2 extra showers. It is ideal for some quality time with your closest friends and family, but we also host honeymoons, weddings and yoga retreats on the island.

Also nice to discover is our preserved jungle and bamboo forest. As well is the coral reef that surrounds the whole island. You can snorkel or kayak around the island within half an hour. Ideal for beginners and intermediate snorklers and kayakers.

The 7 rooms we have are ideal for groups of up to 16 guests. We can also arrange for bigger groups (i.e. wedding parties). If you like to inquire for a bigger group, please message us before hand. If you are unsure on how big your group might become, please consider to make a booking reservation for just a few guests first. We can always change the number of guests at a later time, but you might want to secure the dates, especially during high season.

Where you’ll be

El Nido, Philippines

Brother Island, also known as Small Darocoton, is an island in the El Nido Province of Palawan, Philippines. It is sited roughly 400km south-west from Manila and can be reached via the El Nido Airport.

El Nido, is in the province of Palawan and is handled as one of the most unspoilt areas of the Philippines. Islands, jungle and sea as you know it from movies and commercials.

The province of El Nido is known as one of the last frontiers known to the seemingly unstoppable developments of commercial tourism everywhere else.

On the neighboring islands, there are some small towns and villages. The nearest village is Ligad and can be reached by boat in 10 minutes. This is where the SAMA-SAMA charity pilot project started out by building the first highly sustainable watertank in the region, of which 8 more have been made in the last 2 years.

Then there is Teneguiban, the next bigger village, around 25 minutes away from the island. There you can find an est 80ha Mangrove Forest which is also ideal for birdwatching.

Big Daracoton Island and Cabuli Island are ideal sights for island hopping tours, both just 20 minutes away.

Small Brother Island, aka Nalbot, can be seen from the spectacular view from our Hilltop Banyan House, where the largest anchor in the world is known to be sunken, merely 5-10 minutes away. Also there is a tiny 12 meter wide beach where you can go snorkeling and have a picknick during the day.

If you are into hiking, there are also some interesting pathways from Ligad village to Djapila village or to Teneguiban. A hike to Djapila takes about 2-3 hours back and forth, and the hike to Teneguiban, around 4-5 hours.

Vis a vis on the main island of Palawan and as well on surrounding islands we can find small villages such as Ligad, Teneguiban and San Fernando. These places can be reached within 5 to 30 minutes from the island, ideal for daytrips and picknicks. Daytrips last 6 hours and cost P700/person. Daytrips include a picknick meal.

During your stay

Our guest relations manager and is always available for any queries. You are also welcome to approach the kitchen and boat staff as well. Hidden in the forest we also have a few carpenters who are always working on some handicrafts. Our staff is trained to stay on the back side of the island, so there is no need to worry about your privacy in the house and on the beach side of the island.

Me and my family are the hosts of the island, and we will most likely be on the island as well. If you have any questions, please ask Nida, our guest relations and housekeeping manager.
