Coron has now amassed a spectrum of accommodation options, from luxury resort hotels to affordable hip hostels. Check out my top recommendations!
THE BEST LUXURY HOTELS IN CORON
Coron definitely houses a good number of luxury resorts that are perfect for tourists who want to indulge and have a fancy vacation. These are some of the top luxury resorts in Coron Palawan.
BEST AFFORDABLE LUXURY CORON HOTEL
Highlight: Panoramic view, sunset, and infinity pool
Price Point: Starts at $132
Location: National Road, Barangay Tagumpay, Coron Town Proper
The Two Seasons Coron Bayside Hotel is nestled in the heart of Busuanga island. True to its name, it is at a bayside location that gives the common areas of the hotel a panoramic view of the sea and hilly islets of Coron.
If you opt to stay within the town proper and would want to explore the town of Busuanga walking around, this is a perfect luxurious choice. The Seasons Coron Bayside Hotel is within the stretch of the national road, which is the main passing highway that intersects the entire town.
Most of the rooms have bay-view windows, and all are designed to have patios or verandas. You can also expect roomy shower baths in the en-suites and a comfortable thread count of plush bedding on the queen or king beds.

THE ABSOLUTE BEST LUXURY CORON RESORT
5-star Eco-Friendly Accommodation
Highlight: Sand bar, private beach weddings
Price Point: Starts at $497
Location: Malaruyroy, Bulalacao, Palawan
The Seasons Coron Island Resort is definitely on top of the list of the best Coron resorts for a luxurious and peaceful getaway.
To get to the luxury resort, you’ll need to take almost an hour to transfer from the airport to a private docking area. From there, it’s a boat ride away from Coron town proper to a mini peninsula on Bulalacao Island.
Instead of a luxury hotel suite, you’ll get an entire bungalow to yourself with a balcony, private bathroom, and seating area. And, while each bungalow offers amazing views, few compare to the ones you’ll get from the Island Tip and Sandbar bungalows.
As the name suggests, the Island Tip bungalows are set on the end of the private island. It offers better sea views from almost every angle, including the bathroom, terrace, and private pool. The room also includes complimentary use of water sports equipment for easy kayaking or a trip on the sailboat.
Two Seasons Coron Island Resort has so much to offer and will leave you with much to do. Staying in this haven is like having a private island, as it is seemingly amazing that it is built on a sandbar.
The island has a turtle and giant clam sanctuary and vibrant diving spots that house alive and vigorous house reefs. You can enjoy a private tour around the island and can also go for islet expeditions, diving courses, and kayaking.
The resort has impeccable service and amenities to attend to their spoilt guests. Since it is a secluded resort, you can imagine a tranquil and serene staycation in their modern villas.
Guest Review: “All the pampering we got! Amazing service from pickup to drop-off. You get service that’s above and beyond what you pay for! Loved the welcoming drinks, snacks, complimentary cookies, breakfast buffet… Plenty to do from from snorkelling to SUP… Really enjoyed our stay thanks to the staff’s awesome service!”
MOST UNIQUE LUXURY CORON RESORT
The Island Escape of your dreams…
Highlight: Marine life, Island forest, Private Beach
Price point: Starts at $280
Location: Dimakya Island, Coron
Now the journey to Club Paradise might involve an hour’s van ride from the center and then a 30-minute boat transfer, but it is completely worth it!
This is one of the most unique Coron resorts imaginable and is certainly going to be a stay you’ll never forget. Why? Because it is actually cradled amongst a declared UNESCO Biosphere Reserve!
This Coron, Palawan resort is hailed as a tropical paradise. While here, you can choose between staying in a villa, suite, or cottage. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to get amazing views of the private beach area.
This is the same beach area with some of Coron’s best scuba diving and snorkeling sites, endemic flora and fauna, and unspoiled beaches! If you’re a diving novice, no worries. You can either swim in the outdoor pool instead or take beginner lessons at the on-site Dugong Dive Centre.
And, if you want, the resort can even arrange island hopping tours to the nearby slices of paradise. Other resort facilities also include karaoke, spa, and sauna services. Since the Coron accommodation is so remote, there is an on-site restaurant and bar. On selected days, guests can even see live cultural performances.
Live up the full Coron island luxury experience with this resort with these lavish and unbeatable paradise vibes!

While The Funny Lion may require a tricycle ride from the city center, it’s definitely one of the best accommodation options on the island.
This is a boutique-style resort that has a modern yet classy feeling to it and is an intimate accommodation as they only have 32 rooms available! The best part is they have a roof deck bar that has a great view of the grand limestone islet cliffs.
While the resort may be small, their rooms are not and offer enough moving room to include a desk, private bathroom, and tiny kitchenette. However, you probably won’t need the kitchen much as the hotel serves a daily continental breakfast.

They also serve delicious food and offer their guests complimentary drinks each day of your stay. The staff are accommodating, as well.” -Coline, Philippines

Highlight: Comfortable Beds, Staff, and Location
Price Point: Starts at $37
Location: Calle Nueva Barangay 5, Coron Town Proper
The Sea Horse Guest House was definitely the best value for money in a hostel that I experienced during my time traveling through the Philippines!
The beds and pillows are super comfortable, with a bathroom in each room. Each “dorm bed” is actually a private room with just two bunk beds. It also has family rooms for bigger groups to stay in. These rooms can sleep four guests and have private bathrooms.
The place is perfectly located right in Coron town center with Dicanituan Beach, Coron Public Market, and Mount Tapyas within walking distance. However, the staff can also arrange a shuttle service if you need a ride.
And, honestly, for prices at around $37 per bed, you can’t complain at all. As an added bonus, breakfast is included!
While there, I did find that the wifi connection does not work too strongly in the rooms but works fine on the balcony that has incredible views of the city!
