Banwa Private Island offers a 360-degree view of Palawan.

Banwa Private Island is a newly opened resort located in the northern region of Palawan.

It is one of the world's most exclusive resorts, and charges $100,000 or PHP5.2 million a night.

Covering 15 acres of land, the project, according to Forbes, took 10 years in the making.

The ultra-private island houses six beachfront villas, 12 garden rooms, and a so-called "360-degree suite," which is found at the island's highest point.

Each villa has its own infinity pool, Jacuzzi deck, and floor-to-ceiling glass windows, so guests can have a panaromic view of the Palawan landscape.

The accommodation also comes with a dedicated butler service.

Banwa Private Island's amenities put emphasis on health and wellness.

On top of the standard beach activities such as snorkeling, paddleboarding, kayaking, beach volleyball, and jet ski, guests can choose to play a round of tennis or practice their golf swing at the short game course or book a pilates class at the gym studio.


If guests want to explore the island, they can choose between a yacht cruise and a helicopter ride.

When it comes to food, the resort manages its own farm to ensure the freshness of the ingredients, and has its in-house nutritionist and "juiceologist."

This private island is accessible either by helicopter or seaplane or private jet.

The island can only accommodate a maximum of 48 guests at a given time.
