El Nido Resorts has landed the cover of one of the most influential travel magazines in the world, Travel + Leisure, in its World’s Best Awards August issue.

“It is with great pride that El Nido Resorts was chosen as the cover of the Travel + Leisure US’s World’s Best Awards 2013 Issue this August. It brings recognition not only to our resorts and all the staff who have formed part of the protection and preservation of its natural beauty, but also to Palawan and the Philippines. It certainly gives a boost to the Department of Tourism’s efforts in showing the world that “It’s More Fun in the Philippines,” as it reaches an even larger market,” said Laurent Lamasuta, President of El Nido Resorts.
