Mangenguey Island Resort with a private beach
The Island Life
Mangenguey is where you can experience nature and the arts, engage in exchange of idea, and contribute to a higher cause while enjoying the luxuries of a first class destination.
Private Island Utopia
If you are a sophisticated world traveler uninterested in commercial tourism, but looking to escape to pure tropical paradise far away from other tourists, Mangenguey is the place for you!!!
TV and Internet
Guestrooms feature complimentary wireless internet access,
televisions with cable channels (only on certain rooms), A/C, ceiling fans and safety box. All rooms are non-smoking.
While Mangenguey is a work in progress, a limited number of adventurous guests have experienced its unique brand of "barefoot luxury" since January 2009. It is an exquisite and remote Virgin Island comparable in natural beauty to the best in the world; it is located at the center of the Coral Triangle, one of the world’s richest but unfortunately most endangered marine biodiversity zones.
Mangenguey is an hour away from Manila, Philippines by plane. From there, it's a 30-minute drive to Coron in an air-conditioned airline van or private car (with additional charge). In Coron, guests board a native banka for a 1-1/2 hour journey by boat to the island. To provide ample time for the banka ride, we highly recommend booking AM flights into Busuanga and PM flights returning to Manila.
Mangenguey is now run as a Private Estate island that embodies visionary Spanish designer Helena Carratalà and her American husband, Master Builder Richard Mander’s exquisite taste, selectivity, and standards—making it all the more exclusive and precious. Their trademark style is evident in everything on the island: architecture, décor, cuisine, and service. This makes Mangenguey the perfect destination for people who are looking for an entertaining and enlightening experience.
Mangenguey is an adult only destination and guests must be at least 16 years old.

The dining experience on Mangenguey is like no other: Helena's simple and approachable Catalan-inspired cuisine is definitely one of the highlights of the Mangenguey experience. Guests have called her amazing food "fabulous beyond words" and "Epicurean extravaganza" for the senses. One called it "like… a Michelin starred restaurant stuck on a tropical island".
Her cooking has made Mangenguey a World Class Culinary Destination.
They are no menus on Mangenguey and guests are at the mercy of a culinary genius to surprise them with a fabulous array of masterpieces! We can accommodate “special diets” with advance notice and an extra charge.
Meals are served “al fresco” in the gardens facing the sea or in our beautiful dining room in the Big House.
Guests can also enjoy a selection of wines, spirits, beers as well as Helena's famous signature cocktails. A truly luxurious moment on the island is the pre-dinner drinks at the Big House where you can mingled with other guests as tantalizing aromas waft from the open-style kitchen while Helena's cooks.
Guests can swim and snorkel in our world class reef, paddle around the island in native bankas, bird watch or trek through the forest. They can read on the veranda facing the sea, play pool in the Big House, or watch the sunset while sipping Champagne and listening to Maria Callas. The adventurous can dive in the World War II Japanese shipwrecks in Coron Bay or explore the beautiful reefs. They can have a private picnic complete with butler service on an uninhabited island or historic town.
We have a wonderful in-house masseuse and we use the Island as our Spa.
