Extending across 1.3 hectares, this low-rise resort encompasses not only outstanding accommodation and facilities but also abundant greenery and majestic trees for a genuine tropical-oasis setting.

Similarly distinguishing The Palayana from many other nearby hotels is its 40-meter stretch of private beachfront, which extends much farther than usual crosswise to the surf. One may find this rare to the area where other hotels were built utilizing maximum space; hence making nearby hotels to have little to no usable beach at high tide or no beach at all. The Palayana ensures guests have more than enough space for surfside relaxing and fun activities.

A stay at The Palayana is not merely just a stay; with all experiences ranging from superb accommodation to variety of dining choices, to recreational activities to just true relaxation are all found within reach.
