The Funny Lion got its name from Calauit, which is a nearby safari filled with wild animals imported from Africa during the presidency of Ferdinand Marcos. You can find a wide range of safari animals, except lions. Safari without a Lion? Hence, the name.

Unlike many hotel establishments who usually take with them their own distinct theme and style and root it at the place of their desire, The Funny Lion resonates with the unique culture, the local people, and the rich history of its surroundings to help you immerse yourself in a world different from your own.

How to Get There

The Funny Lion is only half an hour away from the Busuanga Airport. With prior reservations, you can arrange for a private transportation that will take you from the Airport / Seaport to the hotel – airport transfers such as this are usually included in room rates.

Arrival Experience

The moment I stepped foot in the hotel, I immediately felt like I was on a safari. Everything about the place suggested adventure on the wild plains of Africa but with a tropical island feel. There are statues of roaring lions, furniture with leather upholstery, and old globes coupled with framed maps. Even the personnel were dressed in safari clothes!

Food

The restaurant of the hotel is named Hunt Restaurant, which is a very fitting name for a safari-themed place. They serve a mixture of Western and Filipino cuisine, which I really like. What I find most attractive is the way they presented their dishes. All look so appetizing! I loved it so much I practically tried all my meals there. By the way, I truly enjoyed the breakfast buffet which they serve with different dishes every day.

Resort Amenities

I was so happy that the services I needed were conveniently provided for by the hotel. During my first stay almost two years ago, I needed assistance in having my clothes washed. Their staff contacted the nearest laundry service for me and made sure it will be delivered on time! During my recent stay a few months ago, they also gave us a tour around Coron. Prior to your booking, you can also choose what type of tours would you like to have to get instant savings. All tours are well organized and safely conducted by a trusted local tour company Calamianes Expeditions & Eco-Tours.

The resort has a nice infinity pool located on top of the mangrove area. It’s interesting to know that they were able to build it without destroying a single part of the mangrove.

When I was exhausted from our adventures, I loved to go to the Pride Deck which had two bubbly pools – one for adults and one for kiddies. It offered a very beautiful view of the bay and they also offer cocktails of your choice.

My Room

During our recent trip with fellow bloggers, I had a King Room which means I had a full-sized bed all to myself and a beautiful veranda with the view of the pool and the beautiful bay.

The very moment I entered, I immediately felt a sense of relief and comfort after a long and tiring day of exciting adventure. It has a modern, rustic design with accents of native fixtures to blend in with the place.

My most favorite thing about my room is the hot and cold walk-in shower. It even has an environment-friendly lemongrass shampoo in a glass container together with a lemongrass soap, both of which smelled so refreshing!

To give you an idea of the rest of the rooms, here is the information I got:

There are a total of 32 spacious and chic rooms you can stay in – all of which can accommodate 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children at the same time. These rooms are divided into 3 types you can choose from:

1. Cub Room

The Cub room has 2 twin beds and a pull-out bed that is suitable for friends and backpackers alike.

2. King Room

The King room has a king bed that is perfect for couples that are out and about for a romantic getaway. A small family will also have a great time in this 25 sqm room.

3. Pride Room (Premium Room)

The Pride room will provide you with the ultimate experience of style and comfort. It offers a King bed and a lanai or veranda that will give you unlimited access to spectacular views of the Coron bay, the virgin mangrove, and the surrounding hills.

Overall Experience

My experience at The Funny Lion (book now) is something that I will remember for the rest of my life! It may not be one of those mega-hotels that are very extravagant and luxurious, but they gave such unparalleled personal service that made me feel special.

They give me sweet things to munch on every night, and they even hand me some insect-repellant lotions when I go out during the day. The customer service is excellent, the food is delicious, and the place is beautiful! I could not ask for anything better.
