Apulit Island Resort opened last December 2010. Formerly known as Club Noah, it is now owned by the El Nido & Ayala Group and they decided to use the actual name of the island. We've been long-time fans of El Nido resorts -- both Miniloc and Lagen, and now the budding Apulit Resort in Taytay, Palawan.
I've never been to Club Noah, so we decided to immediately check out its new reincarnation, Apulit Island Resort, when it opened. Here is our experience...
Reserve Room#51, which is the farthest water cottage on the east side, if you need privacy.
All the old furniture from its Club Noah days have been changed and replaced with pieces that are custom-made for the Apulit Island Resort.
It is quite windy in this area, though. Raphael's hat was blown away by the wind here, and we weren't able to retrieve it.
We took Aidan to the clinic since he had a minor wood splinter in his hand. The nurse was able to build rapport with him immediately and removed the splinter with ease. Great job!

Live an Awesome Life,
Full Disclosure: My friend from El Nido gave us an Apulit Island Resort gift certificate for the accommodation before she left the company, so the entire family decided to check it out last December.
We paid for our buffet meals (about P1,000 for lunch, and P1,500 for dinner per adult per meal) and incidentals during our 3 Days 2 Nights stay. We paid for our flight to Palawan and transportation going to Taytay.
