Lankayan.jpgLankayan is a tiny island in the Sulu Sea, part of a Marine Protected Area. The resort has adopted the eco-tourism concept and is a vital part of managing and protecting the area. Its dive sites - all just a few minutes away - boast colourful macrofauna, fascinating wrecks and, in season from March to May, regular sightings of the gigantic and harmless whale sharks. Situated within the Sea Turtle Corridor, Lankayan Island is also a nesting place and foraging ground for sea turtles; most commonly Green Turtle and Hawksbill Turtle. Therefore, guests will have a chance to see turtles nesting as well as new hatchlings of baby turtles being released to the sea.

Unpopulated and covered by thick tropical island vegetation on its topside, this peaceful, untouched bit of paradise is ringed by an endless pure of white sandy beach.

Made out of local hardwood, the chalets and standard rooms feature private balconies, and offer quality, elegant accommodations. There are 16 chalets and 8 standard rooms, which comprise two clusters of four rooms each under one roof.
