Tarabanan Cottages Palawan, Philippines

Tarabanan Cottages is a small, family-run, eco-friendly, and community-centered establishment in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan, Philippines. We aim to every day make our operations sustainable and socially responsible by using minimal energy, growing our own vegetables, providing livelihood to our own community, and promoting community-based tourism.

We are committed to the environment and the development of our local community. Our waste plan is based on reduction, reuse, and recycling. Our water comes from groundwater where we used a manual pump to reduce energy consumption. We collect rainwater for our own organic garden where we provide our guests with an organic and seasonal menu. We have our own compose that we also use for our garden. Our staff, composed of family members and folks from Sitio Tarabanan itself, are trained on efficient energy consumption and recycling to raise awareness as they understand that each one can be responsible for significant energy savings.
