Harbour Springs aims to give tourists another dimension of experience of being in Palawan.
The province of Palawan is always on the list of tourists when it comes to must-visit vacation spots.
The island paradise is blessed with stretches of clean beaches, an abundant marine life, lush forests and sunny days almost the whole year round.
That said, it is no longer surprising if, from being a top-of-mind leisure spot, the province has evolved into an attractive investment destination as well.
The recently upgraded Puerto Princesa International Airport and the newly inaugurated San Vicente Airport will now enable more people to travel to Palawan with much ease.
Puerto Princesa’s airport alone now has a handling capacity of 2 million passengers annually. San Vicente Airport, meanwhile, is a perfect landing base for those whose main agenda is to go to Puerto Princesa’s pristine beaches.
Puerto Princesa has a number of timeless must-visit sites.
For one, it is home to the famous Unesco World Heritage site Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, or more popularly known as the Underground River. There’s also the Honda Bay, where you can rent a boat, go from one island to another, and snorkel to your heart’s content.
Reptile lovers should also consider going to the Crocodile Farm, a facility that works to conserve the two endangered species of crocodiles found in the country, namely the saltwater crocodile and the Philippine freshwater crocodile.
Puerto Princesa is also seafood heaven. You can feast on the day’s fresh catch at the various local restaurants in the city.
The last frontier
Palawan is the least exploited place in the Philippines. Its unspoilt beaches, hectares and hectares of intact forests, teeming wildlife and marine life and large coral reef areas make it the country’s last biodiversity frontier.
Good investment
People who have come to love and be fond of this island paradise can now own a slice of the country’s last frontier through Harbour Springs.
A luxury property development conceptualized and masterplanned by Carino Development and Management Corp. (CDMC), Harbour Springs boasts of world-class amenities and is in close proximity to some of Palawan’s best tourist spots.
One highlight of the project is The Crown Residences, a condominium being developed by Sta. Lucia Land Inc. (SLLI), with a hot spring resort beside it.
“It will be the biggest in Palawan,” said Fil Estate Core Inc. and Ncore Realty and Associates Inc. president Noel Cariño. “It gives tourists another dimension of experience. It’s all within the city, it’s not just a water park, it’s going to be better than that.”
Another feature of Harbour Springs is the Premier Condotel Suites and the Penthouse Luxury Suites. Homebuyers and investors are offered the opportunity to own a home while enjoying a lifestyle of luxury and a unique vacation experience in a premium tourist destination.
“The Penthouse Luxury Suites measures 200 sqm with three spacious bedrooms and are equipped with facilities deemed necessary for a most comfortable stay,” he said.
“But what makes it even better is that you can own the said unit at a fraction of a cost through our fractional ownership or our co-ownership program. Here we present an innovative approach were multiple buyers can co-own an asset, each having their own title based on the portion of their share,” Cariño explained.
One Penthouse Luxury Suite can have a maximum of 12 co-owners. This approach makes owning your dream vacation home more affordable, feasible and practical. “As a co-owner, you may transfer, will or sell your specific fraction of percentage of the property,” Carino said.
Indeed, Harbour Springs makes it possible for those who have always wanted to invest and own a vacation home in Palawan, the country’s last frontier.
