Lying along traditional trading routes, Palawan has been known to sailors and traders since pre-Spanish times, yet until very recently, was scarcely touched by tourism. Situated off St Cruz in Honda Bay, 30 minutes northeast of the provincial capital Puerto Princesa, Frazer Island boasts two fresh water lagoons and a pristine setting of clear, turquoise water, coral reefs with tropical marine life and white sand beaches. In 2012, Puerto Princesa Airport has been upgraded to an international airport allowing flights from all over Asia and drastically improving the accessibilty of the island.
Frazer Island’s lagoons and surrounding coral reefs form two concentric circles. This organic shape is also apparent in the shell of sea urchins found on the project site and provides the inspiration for the sculptural form of the villas.
Frazer Island features 66 intimate water villas, uncompromising on luxury and designed to reflect the surrounding beauty of the natural environment. The villas range in size from 215 sq.m. to 520 sq.m. gross area. The resort has a strong focus on sustainable materials, low emissions and energy consumption as well as green waste management systems to safeguard the island’s reef and rich marine life and to ensure that it remains as pristine as it is today.
Floating over Frazer Islands two lagoons, the villas offer seamless indoor/outdoor living and a 360 degree view of the beautiful surroundings. Each villa is fully furnished and equipped and features a spacious living room, master bedroom and bathroom. The outdoor space comprises of a sun deck and lounge area where guests can relax after a swim in the lagoons, watch Frazer Island’s rare birds, or enjoy a private meal.
Guests will enjoy uninterrupted sunrise and sunset views from the over-water villas and all the high-end creature comforts today’s sophisticated travelers expect.
