Banwa Private Island


Banwa Private Island, a private island sanctuary in a marine protected area

Banwa Private Island is an intimate all-villa destination for discerning guests wanting to experience privacy, serenity and intuitive services in a marine protected and nature reserve.

Nestled in one the world’s last frontiers of natural biodiversity, north-eastern Palawan in The Philippines, the island sanctuary boasts of breath-taking views, verdant landscape, pristine beach and turquoise waters.

Remote yet not removed, the luxurious hideaway gem is seamlessly accessible via seaplane, private jet or helicopter from Manila or Clark international airports taking guests straight to the doorstep of the garden island.

Beachfront villas have been designed to immerse guests in the natural beauty of the island. Floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in, whilst the beach and garden terraces create pure luxury of space. The infinity pool in each villa appears to melt into the uninterrupted ocean panorama. Choose to stay in any of the contemporary-designed villas delicately laid out within steps to the unspoilt shores or decide on an exclusive charter island with family, friends and colleagues for that quintessential island escape.

Go underwater and be captivated by rich marine life and radiant coral reefs, explore the crystal waters from above while kayaking and paddleboarding, or hop on a boat to discover nearby islands and say yes to unique adventures.

Central to Banwa Private Island’s ethos, the Aquos Foundation was established to support, nurture and protect the delicate ecosystem. Among its pioneering programmes is the protection and restoration of habitats of the critically endangered Mantanani Scops Owl, Hawksbill Turtle and the Tabon Bird (Megapode).
