Everything was perfect from the moment we were picked up on the airport, and taken on a scenic drive through the countryside. Their accommodations are somewhat basic, but amazingly, falling asleep wasn’t hard here, thanks to the relaxing sounds of nature. Food was great, and the resort was just a short walk away Sabang Beach. On top of that, their service is second to none.

I never knew how loud nature could be until I was sleeping at the edge of the jungle. There are about a million bugs, birds and monkeys making more noise than a busy city could ever hope to. Staying here was a dream come true. The one room cabin was clean and inviting. It is set up with the bed in the center and rudimentary shelving on one side and a tiled area where the toilet, sink and shower are located. The plumbing worked as toilets in the US worked (something that can't even be said for the Mall of Asia) meaning that they flush. Hot water and electricity are even available until around midnight and the generator is shut down. The bed is fairly comfortable and comes with clean sheets and a mesquito netting, which is a blessing in the jungle. I was still a little bit up just from walking around outside but the bugs left me alone while I slept.
Bambua provides excellent views of the nature surrounding it. It is bordered by one side by a National Park and on the other side by a protected Mangrove forest along a river. This means that your view is never obstructed and never will be since further building in this area is illegal. (Unlike the area right on the beach nearby that is quickly being taken up by resort like hotels). The beach is about a ten minute walk or 2 minute Jeepney ride away. We walked each time in order to take in the wonderful rural views such as a giant hog taking a bath in a pond, farmers drying rice along the road or the many 1 room homes that also serve as storefronts for the villagers of Sabang.
Bambua's employess are local villagers who always greet you with a smile. When I stayed a woman named Mercy cooked us two meals a day and every dish was great. The food is all local, mostly fresh fish and vegetables. It was the first time I think I've been on vacation and actually ate healthier than I do at home!
The resort is quite small and very isolated from everything. Your phone will not work here. There may be other guests but chances are that you will be the only one staying here at any given time. This means the beach and jungle trails are pretty much all yours all the time. This is paradise. The owner is originally German and built the resort from the ground up slowly over the last 30 years. The pride he has taken really comes through. Everyone here, including the villagers speak a little bit of English. Communication may be a little bit difficult but not nearly as difficult as I had expected.
I would go back again anytime and highly suggest that you make reservations. Here is their website: http://www.bambua-palawan.com/index.html
It may take them a couple of days to get back to you (they have to drive over an hour to get internet access in Puerto Princesa) but it is definetly the place to stay.
