Lime El Nido Resort: The Next Food Destination

Celebrity Chef Series Set to Elevate the Filipino Gustatory Experience In the Island

As summer season approaches, everyone is already preparing for their next getaway destination where sand and swim top the list. The Philippines has a number of world-class beaches that boasts of crystal clear waters and stunning sceneries. 

Picturesque mountains, limestone cliffs and white sand as well as the dreamy waters teeming with aquamarine life are surely guaranteed to amaze anyone who steps into Palawan, also known as the Last Frontier of the Philippines. Lime El Nido Resort is the perfect place where one can enjoy nature’s wonders together with the comforts of a luxurious resort that offers a relaxing stay, world-class amenities and excellent service. 

Synonymous to an island retreat is good food. Lime El Nido Resort aims for locals and guests alike to have a total feast of the senses with the Celebrity Chef Series which will kick off this March featuring guest Chef Sau del Rosario of Sawsaw and Cafe Fleur. Chef Sau has refined his culinary craft not only in the Philippines but also in other parts of the world. Throughout his more than 20-year experience, he has mastered the art of Filipino cuisine, putting his own distinct touches in the process. 

“I am pleased to collaborate with Lime Hotel and Resorts for the Celebrity Chef Series. ‘Arkipelago: Featuring Food From Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao’, brings together the unique mix and tastes of the three major islands of the Philippines,” said Chef Sau. His menu offerings will be available from March 15 to June 30, 2023. The wonderful spread includes some of these mouthwatering delights: Kinilaw na Maya-maya, Pinoy Style Caesar Salad, Chorizo & Citrus Chicken Jus, Sous-vide Lengua Pastel, Lamb Shank Caldereta, Sisig, Crispy Pork Belly with Macadamia Kare-kare Sauce and Deconstructed Halo-halo. “I hope anyone who goes to El Nido will be pleased with the line-up I prepared as they rediscover the culinary delights that are part of our culture,” he further added. 

One of the main activities at El Nido is island hopping. Visitors can enjoy the novelty of having their lunch arranged and brought at any of their stopovers. While this has been a norm for quite some time now, it still has a long way to go in terms of quality, serving and presentation. The Celebrity Chef Series aims to level up this service by going the extra mile. On top of a well-curated menu, food will be served hot and fresh, with guests being comfortable with a cozy table set-up, completing the perfect island experience. 

“Lime Hotel and Resorts is known for providing fun-loving individuals an unforgettable visit across our three destinations, namely: Lime Resort Manila, Lime Resort El Nido and Lime Hotel Boracay,” said Emil Po, CEO. “We want to elevate the El Nido experience with a unique gustatory adventure showcasing the wonderful flavors of our country. Through the Celebrity Chef Series, we envision Lime El Nido as the perfect food destination in the island. We are glad to work with Chef Sau in this endeavor and look forward to the next collaborations with other chefs in the coming months,” he enthused. 

Lime El Nido Resort is about 15-20 minutes away from the airport and Lio Beach. For more information and reservations, visit
