An island resort in a remote area in Palawan has been identified in Vogue Magazine-United Kingdom as a top vacation site.
Ariara, located in Linapacan, Palawan, was described in the article as "exotic" and "adventurous."
"It will house you and your guests along a stunning beach so that you truly feel that you’ve found your corner of the world," the magazine said in its slideshow.
"Supreme in quality from the water sports to the food and wine, it’s worth every penny of its breath-taking prices," the magazine said, adding that the resort is "best for the most decadent of group holidays."
According to Ariara's website, reservations during the peak season may cost some P180,000 per night for a group of only eight guests.
"Ariara is only available for exclusive rental to one group/party of guests at a time," the resort added.
Vogue UK said the price, however, "for a really special occasion might just be justified." Other resorts that made it to Vogue's list include several posh hotels in Brazil, New York, Maldives, among others.
