Great resort! Would definitely recommend this place for romantic getaways. It's a bit farther from the action than some of the more popular spots in El Nido, but well worth it. The staff at Qi is attentive, kind and extremely helpful with booking activities. There are also plenty of things to do on this resort's property. The owner even comes...

We stayed here for a couple nights in November. The food was really good, and the prices for food and activities were very reasonable for a secluded resort. The internet worked well. They have a great lobby/restaurant area. The yoga class was a nice way to start off the day. The resort is on the quieter side of the island,...

The beachfront isn't swimmable but the ambience serenity really is one of a kind. Brace yourselves with insect bites but the citronella resort provides really helps! The food is a bit overpriced for the taste but the serving is really big so the price is reasonable somehow if you'll share. The owner himself is hands on and will greet you....

Everything from the staff, daily activities, location and food is unreal at this joint. The owner himself is a former chef and extremely welcoming himself. They cook to order from the freshest produce and keep an extremely high standard across the menu. Wife was allergic to onions and has never been able to eat such a wide range of foods...

I felt like being home. Such a kind welcome and service of all the staff. Since I was travelling on my own, I was offered a special tour just for me with a boat trip, snorcheling and a barbecue picnic at a paradise beach. What a treat!

I spent 6 days at Qi Palawan on a solo trip with the goal of a well balanced escape. Every aspect of my visit was excellent, the owners and all staff are kind, thoughtful and provide the right level of attention. You will always feel someone is there if you need them or when you want something but never like...

We had the bad luck of being there during a storm which is rare this time of year but we still enjoyed our stay thanks to the great facilities, friendly staff and good food. Because the weather was bad, we spent most of our time in the restaurant. We enjoyed playing games and billiards and chatting with the super friendly...

Me and my partner just got back from a fantastic 2 week stay at Qi. Really relaxing location and yet loads of activities to keep you entertained. Seemed most guests were just staying a few days as they island hopped or ended here after touring Palawan but we just stayed here and took advantage of learning to dive and kite-surf....
