This time i will bring my husband for our new years resolution of a detoxifying retreat. i stayed in 2011 the first time and this time i hope to know the ropes and will fall right in naturally to getting in with the program.

My wife and I chose to holiday at Malapacao Private Island to celebrate a combined birthday and wedding anniversary, and were overwhelmed by the sheer beauty and tranquility the island had to offer! We were pampered from the word go by the delightful hostess "Friday" who treated us more like family than friends. We knew we were in an absolute... More

Back in September / October 2012, I was planning a trip around East Asia visiting friends followed by a week or two on a warm, sunny beach somewhere quiet and ideally naked. Not expecting to find anything, I searched the internet to see if I could find any naturist beaches and to my surprise, I found one in the Philippines;... More

I have explored natural beauty in 37 countries and counting but nothing comes close to this place. Toucans and hummingbirds everywhere. 2 meter wingspanned flying foxes circling the fruit trees on top of the rocks above. Dugongs (according to passing fisherman) cruising in the shallow waters, which is perfect for world class snorkeling right at the doorstep. Fresh noni, coconut,... More

My wife and I were there in 2008. As most have said, the island is beautiful, great place to let go of the world, free yourself of clothing, swim, snorkel, enjoy nature and just 'be'. The Filipino staff were a most wonderful delight: friendly, smiling, warm, hardworking. HOWEVER: Leann could be a handful. She is un-trained in any health related... More

Please check out restlessenergy website - I'm really sorry to say this - I know when I went to Leean's island I was looking for somewhere remote to detox and relax and the island is beautiful. But it comes at a real cost. Leean has been closed down many times and is being investigated by the Phillipine authorities for treatment... More

I stayed on Malapacao Island for about 10 days. I was met at the small local airport and taken to the Island's boat. This is a very large outrigger canoe with a diesel engine > very safe and seaworthy as I know boat very well. A beautiful ride and a wonderful way to land on Leeann's remote island. At first,...

I stayed here for a month and found it quite scary and in the end persuaded one of the staff to take me to another island - Leann was not allowing me to leave and kept all my possessions and money.
