WHERE before one can count on fingers the number of places to stay in Puerto Princesa, there are now plenty of places to stay.
The city is a virtual tourist haven catering to visitors belonging to different demographics: backpackers, bed-and-breakfast travelers, those who are traveling on a shoestring budget and the most finicky tourist.
The multinational chains are also making their presence felt, providing world-standard hospitality. The trailblazers are still providing legendary service, like the Microtel Wyndham, the only beachfront hotel offering a spectacular view of Palawan sunrise and wide expanse of historic Canigaran Beach.
The Imperial Palace Palawan Resort Hotel is fast shaping up, with no less than the award-winning architecture shop WTA Architecture and Design Studio at the helm.
Bankrolled by a Korean business group, the P1.9-billion water-park project located in Barangay Santa Lourdes is proof of the city’s viability as an investment haven for tourism growth and real-estate development. When finished, the 15-story Imperial Palace will have 367 rooms, private pool villas, restaurants, water parks, hot spa and a hot spring.
