Guilt-Free Green Luxury

Cacao Pearl eco-homes in Palawan

The first non-profit and luxury eco-resort community to commit 100 percent of operating profits to environmental protection and social improvements will be built on a 124-acre private island in the Calamianes archipelago, at the northernmost tip of the Palawan Biosphere Reserve in the Philippines. The property, named Cacao Pearl, will feature eco-friendly items like wind turbines and solar panels surrounded by lush rainforest and towering coconut trees, fringed with over a mile of pristine beaches. The exclusive property will offer a spa, infinity pool, as well a few different dining options. Operated by Cacao Resorts, the property will also offer some of the best shipwreck diving in Asia.
