Al Faro Cosmio

The Al Faro Cosmio Hotel is a tiny, boutique resort located at the entrance of D’Pearl Bay on the island of Busuanga, Northern Palawan, ideally located for diving the Coron wrecks.

Al Faros’ infinity swimming pool, restaurant and bar are sited high up on the point providing stunning views, in particular sunsets, across the South China Sea. Tropical white sand beaches are just a short boat trip away.

Each room has en suite bathroom with rainwater shower, kingsize bed and safe. WiFi is available throughout the resort.

Restaurant & Bar
Al faro offers international cuisine and authentic Filipino dishes such as the famous Chicken Adobo. Seafood, understandably, is a favourite, but other popular offerings include Spanish Paellas, Italian Risotto funghi, Swiss barbecues and other specialities from across the world.

Al faro is powered by its one energy station using the latest European technology for power storage, ensuring that there is always electricity, WiFi and also cellphone coverage.
