We are a family owned resort with deep roots in El Nido. Mercy was born and raised here in El Nido and met Ernesto while in college. They decided to immigrate to Alaska to work and raise a family. Ernesto has been part of the hotel industry for 30+ years and brings that knowledge to our resort. Mercy brings her passion in gardening and you’ll see that once you arrive at our location.
When they decided to retire, they wanted to build a resort in their hometown and decided to call their eldest some Michael to come along and join the process.
Michael is from Anchorage, Alaska and lived in Arizona for the most of his adult life and worked as business consultant for godaddy.com. Christine is from Quezon City where she was a ICU nurse for The Philippines Heart Center.
They met each other in Palawan during a yoga retreat and decided shortly they will help run The Nest. You will see them for sure as they are very hands on with the resort.
The family put a lot of love each part of the resort and they do the same with the their staff and guest.
