Dream Honeymoon | Part 2 | Dos Palmas Island Resort & Spa

I am sipping a Chai Tea Latte in a coffee shop in a cold, slightly rainy Chicago, and I am wondering why on earth have my hubby and I ever returned from our honeymoon in the Philippines? I warm my soul by scrolling through the photos I am about to share with you, and take solace in knowing that we’ll be leaving on our next adventure before we know it.  

I can’t believe that merely a few months ago we were sitting in the same coffee shop looking for our ideal honeymoon location. On the hunt for white sand, turquoise beaches, peaceful, authentic locations, and a certain level of comfort only a resort can provide, we found our ideal little island paradise at the Dos Palmas Island Resort & Spa in the Palawan archipelago of the Philippines. 

Located on its own private island in the tropical waters of Honda Bay, the resort is the perfect safe haven for tourists like us who enjoy a little piece and quiet in a pristine natural environment. The small number of beach villas - and hence tourists - gave us the impression that the resort was almost entirely ours, and the genuinely nice staff made us feel right at home from day 1. 

Our initial worries of boredom faded away quickly as we started to take advantage of all the island could offer. We tried everything from long hours of kayaking around a mangrove forest and sipping tropical drinks by the pool to exploring the resort’s colorful coral reefs and enjoying an aromatherapy massage. But our favorite pastime of them all was sitting on the beach marveling at this breathtaking landscape. I can safely say that I have never been so relaxed in my entire life, nor have I ever seen so many shades of turquoise in one place! 

Of course our 5 days at Dos Palmas had to come to an end. But we left with a newly found inner piece, a new adventure to Sabang on our radar, and countless photos. Enjoy a small sampling of our images taken at the resort, read Part 1 of my honeymoon diaries, and I hope to see you back for Part 3!

Have a wonderful weekend!
