For Cathy’s 2xth birthday, I booked us a three-day, two-night stay at the Hotel Fleuris in Puerto Princesa, the capital of the Philippines’ most breathtaking ecological paradise, Palawan. The Hotel Fleuris, a clean, classy hotel in Palawan with terrific customer service and a host of facilities, is one of the most renowned hotels in Palawan, and we’ve never been more excited. Cathy and I have always wanted to go to Palawan (why travel abroad when the Philippines has 7,107 beautiful islands we can visit?), and this is the first trip we’re taking with just the two of us outside of Manila.

This is the Explore Puerto Princesa Package that the Fleuris Hotel in Palawan offer for P6,800net per person, two persons minimum (so it works for Cathy and me). Coordinating with this comfortable Palawan hotel has proven pleasant – specifically Assistant Sales Manager Ms. Vivian Msungi, who coordinated with us via email – and despite the lack of instant confirmation online that we had with other hotels in the Philippines (the oh-so-plush Diamond Hotel in Manila and our favorite Manila hotel, Discovery Suites in Ortigas), it was otherwise a pleasant experience booking at the Fleuris Hotel in Palawan.
