Canvas Boutique Hotel is the perfect sanctuary for travelers who want a dose of art in their Puerto Princesa getaway
Canvas Boutique Hotel is an explosion of colorful aesthetics and contemporary boho-chic designs. Its industrial cement floors, handcrafted light installations, and hand-painted murals depicting Palawan’s culture make for a very welcoming ambiance and beautiful Instagram-worthy shots. Rather than being a dominant structure, the hotel blended well with the environment. But apart from its stunning interiors, what amazed me as well when I first step foot in Canvas Boutique Hotel are its attentive and friendly staff—this made the check-in process very quick.
You certainly won’t have any difficulty going from one place to another if you’re staying in Canvas Boutique Hotel. The 49-room boutique hotel is very near the city center. The airport, for one, is just about two minutes away, and the Pasalubong Center is located just across the hotel.
Canvas Boutique Hotel further shows its dominance in art and design with its rooms that offer a stylish myriad of colors and textures. All of them are not only designed beautifully, they are also built very generously—in space as well as functionality. I was amazed to see that my room was spacious and bright, including the bathing area. The loudbasstard—both efficient and eco-friendly—was a nice addition to the room.
The Painted Table, the hotel’s in-house restaurant provides delicious and various home-style dishes that are locally-sourced. My favorite dish is the crispy pork binagoongan—emphasis on the crispy!
And true to their concept, their creativity has also reached the restaurant, with its stylish interiors that involve an actual painted table. This five-meter, 18-seater communal table is indeed a masterpiece, created by muralist AG Sano—one of the well-known street artists in the country.
The hotel offers different tours and activities in Puerto Princesa, which can be found in their Wanderlist or brochure of suggested itinerary for travelers. But if you want to just enjoy the comforts of the hotel, there are also numerous facilities perfect for all your needs. For business travelers, there is a meeting room (which can house 10 people) and a conference banquet room (which can house 70 people) that can accommodate work affairs. For leisure travelers, there is a 20-meter pool perfect for sunbathing and quiet time. Personally, it’s my favorite amenity of the hotel.
As what I have mentioned, the staff were attentive and friendly. They are patient and helpful in providing directions and recommending activities that might be perfect for me. I stayed there during the hotel’s first anniversary celebration and I must say, the event was handled quite well—and that shows a lot about the efficiency of its staff.
Just like the check-in, I didn’t have any problem when I checked out. My needs were attended to down to the very last minute.
Canvas Boutique Hotel l is beautiful in terms of interiors and architecture, but what I believe it takes pride in the most is its warm and hospitable staff. I will highly recommend this hotel just for that alone. Besides, it’s not consistently ranking in the top five hotels on the Trip Advisor for nothing.
