Duli beach is El Nido's surfing capital. Feel the powdery sands while walking in the sea side. Going here is challenging as of Feb 2024 as there's few kilometers of rough road uphill. So tourists usually rent a motorcycle going here unless you have a 4x4 SUV.
Max and his team are awesome! We made the mistake of not staying here as it's such a beautiful place to be with amazing views and has everything you could need for a chill holiday. The experience of seeing the turtle release was wonderful and left my wife with tears of happiness (they are her spirit animal). The team at Duli Beach resort perform such an important role in conservation of these extraordinary creatures.
There is nothing missing in this place. Absolute dream location to stay and unbuckle from reality. The hosts are the absolute best. The staff very attending. And the location unbelievable. The bungalows are super clean and comfortable. Don’t miss out on that opportunity to stay in paradise.
Magical unforgettable experience. Duli Beach will leave you breathless. It’s pristine sands, all-natural landscapes, the beautiful star-lit night sky. They have this long stretch of beach that’s empty of tourists so you basically have the beach to yourself. All you can hear are the wind and the waves. This is picturesque perfection of nature right here. It doesn’t get any better than this. The surfing was amazing too. There’s multiple shops that offer surfboard rentals and lessons. At night, if you time your trip just right, you’ll have a star-studded night sky. I mean countless little white dots of these awesome glowing balls of gas light years away. This was the highlight of my trip. The resort has a few things they can improve on, mostly outside of their control, however. They only have electricity at certain times of the day so they have a small battery in the room for the overnight fan. The room is bare bones which is understandable seeing as you don’t really go to Duli for the hotel stay. It’s just a bed and a bathroom. They only have curtains against a screen door/wall for privacy which isn’t really a bad thing especially cause you need a lot of ventilation given the lack of good electricity. The food is average. They don’t have a good selection. I got the Dutch style pancakes for breakfast which they should have spruced up more. It’s just 2 pancakes. Maybe they could have added eggs or fruits. Their coffee was top tier though. They had freshly brewed French press coffee which was superb and the perfect add-on to the whole beach experience. The staff was nice, hospitable, friendly and accommodating. They offer laundry. The logistics is the worst part. They didn’t communicate with us that you need to walk around 150 something meters to get to the hotel. This would have been okay if not for having to lug around heavy luggage through sand. They said they could have helped out if we told them about our arrival time. But we didn’t know that getting there would be a challenge. Getting to the beach is another whole ordeal which again is out of their control. It’s a hilly dirt road and you need to have good grip strength to hold on to the tricycle. Maybe they should have some kind of atv to help bring you to and fro the main road. All in all it was an unforgettable experience. Magical. Amazing. Paradise!
There are no words to describe Duli Beach and what Max, Elma and the team have to offer. The perfect place to bring your life back to basics in a unique way. Off the beaten track and off the electric grid, the rooms are spacious but simplistic. With nothing more than mosquito netting covering the front of each bungalow, you are able to fall asleep to sounds of the ocean and nature's wildlife. Breakfast, lunch and dinner were delicious especially the tuna ceviche. Surfing, massages, the majestic beach and chickens roaming free are just some of the things to help you relax and unwind from the hectic world. However, for me, the icing on the cake is the incredible conservation work of turtles and I was lucky enough to see two batches of freshly hatched turtles released into the ocean. My only regret....I wish we had been able to stay longer ❤️ Thank you Duli Beach ❤️
