After a 45-minute drive from Puerto Princesa City proper, the entrance to a lush property appears. At the barrier gate, the security checked our van and confirmed the number of passengers aboard. The driver continued to drive onto the steepest slope. We’ve arrived. I just realized I had been enjoying the uphill turns and the trees along the way so much, I didn’t notice the time.
Surrounded by deep blue-green water and majestic mountain range, Kamia Bay Resort, a hideaway offering day trip packages, just had an intensive makeover to house Asia’s largest inflatable waterpark to date, the Aqua Play Parks.
Of all the resorts in Puerto Princesa, this vast property is the only one with an aqua play park. Guests opt to come here in groups to challenge themselves on the mountainous inflatable obstacles or try activities such as jet skiing, speed boating, paddle boarding, ball games, and even cycling. That said, Kamia Bay Resort is known for action sports yet still has all of the elements to make it a place to de-stress, reconnect with nature; for guests to be slow and still.
No less thrilling a feature of Kamia Bay Resort is its ecotour where guests can explore the entire property on foot or bicycle. The trail weaves through lines of trees and mangroves making it fairly cooler. At the far side of the resort are rock formations. Adjacent to it is a forest of slender trees. I think the place is like a venue for shooting an enchanted movie scene. I had some “mermaid shots” and other crazy poses in the area.

During lunchtime, we ate at the big pavilion assigned to our bloggers group. I cherished this meal so much because we dined complete with AquaPlayParks.com CEO Mr. Peter Appleton, celebrities Wilma Doesnt and Markino Casiano, and United Bloggers Philippines team headed by Ms. Bette Medina.
Food is great in the resort. You don’t have to worry about being restricted from bringing your own food, the buffet lunch is already sumptuous and tasty. It is reasonably priced as well. I particularly loved the chicken and that crispy turon we ate for snack. I see the resort has embraced the distinctive use of local fresh fruits, spices, and creative cooking of meat ingredients.

How to get to Kamia Bay Resort
There is no public transportation to use to go to Kamia Bay. Although, I heard, you can rent a motorcycle to go there. I’d love to try this next time. But for group of travelers, rent a van. I highly recommend you avail of the package tour to Kamia Bay with round trip transfers. Again, the price is reasonable.
If you are using your own vehicle, you can check this direction from google maps.
