Seda Lio: A Sustainable Tourism Destination in Palawan

These days, it’s hard to not be conscious of the state of the earth. One plastic bottle from a hotel’s mini-bar may not seem a lot but it can pile up and cause a lot of damage. It’s important to know if the accommodation you are staying at is eco-friendly.


Seda Lio in Palawan is an amazing resort that has a “green” initiative. It is located in the master-planned Lio Tourism Estate, which is a 325-hectare ecologically-sustainable tourism destination.


The 4-hectare Seda Lio has a limited height structure of only 3 floors. It’s not just meant to be aesthetically pleasing but it also serves the purpose of not being higher than the surrounding coconut trees. What’s more, the property is a good distance from the beach so as not to interfere with the natural cycles along the shoreline.

Seda Lio aims to address environmental concerns, one of the initiatives inside the hotel is being plastic-free. Instead of offering water in plastic bottles, refillable glass bottles are used instead. Amenities such as shampoo and soap are not individually wrapped in plastic but rather come in ceramic jars.

The hotel is able to come up with creative eco-friendly solutions all the while ensuring guests still have a convenient and enjoyable stay in Lio.
