No tropical island would be complete without sanded beaches and warm clear water. Morel's Private Island Resort has a main beach on the west side and a number of small coves on the east side of the island, providing sheltered swimming for most of the year.
Our sheltered, gently sloping and sanded west beach is ideal during high tides for swimmers of all ages.
The east beaches are a set of small coves with mangrove plants just offshore providing almost complete privacy.
The west beach nippa hut, at the opposite end of the beach from the cottage, provides shelter from the sun, a place to eat and rest, and ready access to an ideal swimming spot along a natural sandbar.
Former Private Residence
Our former private residence adds a touch of luxury to your island experience. Guests who stay in the residence rooms have the use of the dining and living areas, the kitchen, patio and surrounding grounds.
The residence boasts two toilet and shower rooms, and a large en-suite with bath in the deluxe room.
The Romblon Island quarried marble floors and narra doors and sidings from sustainable logging from nearby Sibuyan Island are showcased in the interior.
The residence is built on the second highest point on the island. The rooftop observation area offers 360 degree sea views, and every room has a sea view.
Situated on the second highest point on the island, the residence can be seen from miles around and is called the white house by the local population.
The residence surrounds include old rice fields converted to bermuda grass lawns and grassed embankments. The higher ground contains a variety of local trees and a number of exotic fruit trees.
Situated in the most sheltered part of the main beach, the beach cottage is ideal for those on a budget. It can comfortably accommodate six adults with children and includes full kitchen and dining facilities.
With nippa roofing and coconut lumber floor, the beach cottage is a semi native style character combined with a modern kitchen and toilet/shower.
The exterior, with nippa, coconut lumber and bamboo, gives the beach cottage a native style character.
The beach cottage is fronted by the main beach, with tree lined grassed and sandy areas surrounding the rest of the cottage.
An old rehabilitated fishpond, now used mostly for flood control during typhoons and king tides, lies directly beneath the main residence and provides stunning reflections of it's surrounds in low winds.
The entire north side of the island is protected from erosion by mangrove swamps, sea walls and grass.
The south side of the island is relatively undeveloped and contains old disused rice fields protected from the sea by a combination of mangrove swamp and sea walls.
With no natural predators apart from other birds, the local bird population live in an unofficial sanctuary and can be heard and sometimes seen throughout the day.
The island lies along white stalk migration routes during which large flocks rest the night in the mangrove swamps.
Morel's Private Island Resort comprises a single lot. Two rainwater collection tanks store up to two months supply, while electricity is provided from the grid on nearby Tablas Island with backup generators.
