                One great experience !”

                Dreaming of going to Maldives got us to Huma instead. Considering the cost for us Filipinos, I can truly say that it is not practical to spend 20K plus for a night but we understand why they have to charge that much. Here are the reasons based on our experience: 1) They will have to pay for the van for the RT Airport transfer . 2) They will have to pay for the RT Boat transfer 3) considering its an island resort, all of the supplies there will have to be transported by a boat 4) The maintenance of all the rooms and resort facilities must be very costly . As per interview with Sir Jay, before Huma could start its operation last 2013, they were hit by the strongest typhoon Yolanda that damaged almost 80% of the resort. So the owner have to rebuild it again ( imagine how much was the cost of the construction?) And now they will be closing the resort to the public by August to end of September to have a renovation again and will be opened to the public by October 2017. CONS: buffet is expensive which is P2500 per pax but it is practical than ordering there by menu. Beach sand is not that fine. PROS: Upon arrival, they will hand you a cold towel and will be greeted by a song and drinks. They transferred us to our room by a buggy in which you will see the beautiful scenery of the place. Our room was very comfy and very colorful!! It was my first time to dip in Jacuzzi and it was awesome and the view!! We are not just lucky to experience the beautiful sunset as it was raining in the afternoon. The bathroom is also big and there is an indoor bathtub with the toiletries L'Occitane which is very nice not to bring home :) Overall, definitely I will recommend it to all future guests and will be looking forward to come back again . More promos please :)

                A true paradise”

                We stayed at huma island resort for two nights as an early birthday celebration for my boyfriend. Getting there is not easy. We fled to Manila then Busaunga, then from there a car and a boat. All the hassle is well worth it though .....that place is a true paradise. The environment and the resort itself took our breath away. So beautiful, and its not touristy nor commercial...we had such a great time there. Food was nice, and the pool was clean. Staff super friendly and helpful. Would totally recommend to any couple who want to spend some intimate time in a close to private island resort.

                Best service I've ever experienced”

                Best service, great view, enjoyable stay

                Big thank you to all the staff in Huma island resort for making us feel warmly welcomed during our stay. They are the most friendly staff I've ever met. The water villa was fantastic with a great view. The restaurants are awesome, especially the sandy room where we had a romantic private dinner. Great stay, highly recommended.

                Excellent time here. ”

                we stayed here last month. It was excellent. From May at the booking in the front desk, who was very and genuinely helpful. Then to the island itself. The positives were..... A) the island itself is lovely. B) the staff were very good. C) the room is lovely, with lovely views from the jacuzzi/balcony. D) the view from the balcony/jacuzzi is lovely. E) i liked the free bottle of welcome wine, and the slippers and the hats. Nice touch. F) we loved the romantic set up that they did twice for us. G) I liked the Indian chef taking time to talk to us, and nice that we got a little snack when going. H) we had a small problem but the resort manager handled it very well and turned a negative into a positive. I) the staff was very good overall, but the 2 that deserves a mention on the activities.(sorry I forgot there names.) (a small lady, and the guy who took us snorkelling). J) as it was out of season it was good for us it was very quiet and felt like it was our own island. K) the housekeeping staff were very quick at coming if there was any problems. L) I liked that the general manager was active and his presence was there. M) I liked that they they went to the next Island to get some ingredients for a meal that I had requested. N) fast internet, clear tv signal and loads of channels. (And liked the speakers in the bathroom) O) the area around by the spa and the open floor was lovely idea/design. P) good to see a lot of fish in the shallow part for the snorkelling. Now the things that I feel they need to improve on... 1) the boat taking us to the island.(I was told the other was on repair, but still they should have got a better temporary boat. 2) the decking in the main part is warped, and needs replacing. 3) there is some tiles that need to be replace round by the pool. 4) the rope fence around the balcony could be slightly higher. 5) no pork as a Muslim owner. I feel customers(especially Filipino) like pork and should be allowed as you need to thin

                Very Good but has room for improvement”

                The best thing about Huma is its staff. They were excellent, and bent over backwards to be able to deliver service. Having experienced other luxury places in Palawan, I would say that the value for money of the accommodation needs to improve. Other than that, the food and services were reasonably priced. The SPA facilities and services are excellent. I loved that whole experience. It would be good for Huma to invest in its own diving facilities and Dive Masters. That is not quite mentioned in the website. One therefore automatically assumes that it is available but instead one needs to go another accredited Dive Shop who has a Dive Master. Perhaps as we were there on low season, only one restaurant is open per night. I understand it on an economy of scale. But there's limited variety on each menu. I can still tolerate that but what I didn't get is that in that limited menu, most of the time, one or two items would not be available. For example there will be three items for dessert on the menu, but only one would actually be available. Not quite impressive for a 5 star property. The gym also needs work. One of the air-conditioning units and one of the treadmills were not working. Jet Ski facilities were available but when we went only one was also functioning. So while we wanted to use two so some of us could jet ski together, that was not possible. Having said that, the snorkeling area around the beach front was good. The food and services were commendable. Overall, I had a very good experience. And again kudos to the staff for the fantastic service.
