Canopy Villas:

Perched 15-18 metres above the ground, these uniquely situated villas are accessible either by buggy, or via stairs leading to a wooden boardwalk that winds through the island’s lush forest.

Beach Villas:

These breathtaking villas face directly onto the caster sugar sands of Pangulasian Island’s pristine beach, offering immediate access to one of the resort’s most attractive features. They are also conveniently located near to the resort centre, and as such these villas are within easy reach of the infinity pool, the beach bar and the poolside grill.

Pool Villas:

Each one of these luxurious villas features a 22 square metre private pool connected to their spacious balcony area. From the pool, it is possible to hear the waves lapping against the shore, thanks to the Pool Villas’ quiet location away from the rest of the resort.

Kalaw Villas:

The most decadent of Pangulasian Island’s accommodation options, the four Kalaw Villas are located in a secluded cove at the west end of the island. Clustered together to provide expansive accommodation for large families or groups, the Kalaw Villas share an 85 square metre swimming pool and a large sala perfect for outdoor living and entertaining.
