KokosNuss is the longest-running resort in Coron, offering action-packed activities such as wreck diving, sea safaris, snorkeling, and island hopping. Our resort is proud to be situated in Palawan’s “Last Frontier,”. Our founder, Rudolf Weih, settled in Coron in 1991 and started the business in 1992 with four cottages. Today, we offer 28 cottages and designer rooms, a tropical garden, and a restaurant serving fresh seafood and homemade specialties. Let us help you plan the best tours and arrange transportation to other places.
Our resort offers spacious and airy bungalows constructed partially from local materials in the traditional Philippine native style. Each room is furnished with comfortable beds, clean linens and pillows, and clean bathrooms. We also offer deluxe bungalows with en-suite CR, shower, marble flooring, and air conditioning. This is a rare luxury in this “wild” area, but it’s good for those who want to indulge in their status as a member of the jet-setting glitterati.
Coron is a quiet and beautiful town situated along a rocky seashore between mangrove forests on Busuanga Island, the largest island in the Calamianes. The Calamian Group of Islands is the most northern part of Palawan Province. The main activity in the area is fishing and transportation of fish to Manila. Palawan is the Philippines’ western-most province, known for its virgin forests and unique wildlife, including the tiny Calamian Deer, Palawan Anteater, and Palawan Bearcats. Coron is halfway between Manila and Palawan’s capital, Puerto Princesa. The identical names of some towns and islands in the area can be confusing, such as Old Busuanga, New Busuanga, Coron, and Culion.
