Mövenpick Hotels recently confirmed that it will manage the Huma island luxury resort, located near the stunning province of Palawan in the Philippines.

The private island is very popular among divers who want to have a close encounter with a very diverse marine life and exceptional corals. They are also attracted by some of the most famous shipwrecks of the 20th century.

Huma is also an island of magic and mystery with its tip covered by thick rainforest and its bottom laden with primeval caves.

The beautiful beach was once the home of Ibrahim the Sailor whose ship was wrecked in 1352 while on his way to China from India. The sailor is long gone but the legend continues.

The resort and spa carrying the Mövenpick brand will open before the end of 2012 and will make most of the mystical settings with 80 bungalows situated over the waters.

According to the management, Huma Island can be considered as a dream destination. Mövenpick has another resort in the country located in the island of Cebu.

The Huma Island can be reached from the capital Manila via seaplane then taking a luxury speedboat.
