Distinct white and cobalt blue décor, minimalist furnishings, and serene views—these are the signature features of a stay in Santorini.
The unique beauty of the villas make it such a dreamy getaway spot, and a few local establishments have tried to emulate the look and vibe of the destination.
The good news is that you no longer have to book a long-haul flight just to get a taste of Santorini. Instead, you can head to Palawan and stay at the picturesque new haven in Coron Town that took inspiration from the Grecian gem—The Palladium Hotel. This charming boutique hotel is just five minutes from the town proper and about 30 minutes away from the Busuanga Airport.
The adults-only accommodations ensure you get a truly quiet and peaceful stay, whether you're traveling with friends or family members or enjoying a romantic getaway. PSA: It’s especially perfect for couples looking for honeymoon-worthy headquarters in Coron.

The opulence doesn’t stop there. Palladium Hotel has an in-house café called Dior, which serves sumptuous complimentary breakfast to guests. Dior Café serves mainly Mediterranean cuisine and is open for lunch, dinner, high tea, and cocktail hour. You could even enjoy the latest hits while dining, or listen to some Mediterranean music to complete your Greek experience in Coron.
You can also go for a refreshing swim in the outdoor pool or chill at the poolside Taverna Bar.

The massage will come in handy at the end of a long and busy day, especially if you plan to fully explore Coron and all it has to offer.
