Canvas Boutique Hotel Philippines - the walls whisper this: staying at Canvas awakens an innate instinct for adventure.
Trust us, you’ll need more than a moment to take it all in. Canvas is exactly what it’s called—look up to lights that mimic the stalactites of the Underground River, look down to intricate Machuca tiles, look left and right and center as hand-painted wall art narrates stories of the island, live and in color. All the visual imagery will make you want to soak it up—whether it’s as you kick your feet back in your spacious room, share plates of dishes at the vibrant restaurant, or take a dip in the outdoor pool. Whatever you choose, keep your eyes wide open and your heart set to experience adventure — it’s how we do it at Canvas.
STORY OF THE WALLS
If walls could talk, what would you want it to say? The walls at Canvas speak volumes, and—quite literally—every storey has a story. Weaving that narrative into life were a team of visual artists who rendered Palawan culture, life forms and mythology onto colorful, vibrant reverbs of the island's most celebrated cultural traits. The result is a refreshing surge of life, breathed to perfectly weave into the hotel's contemporary fixtures. To wit, the walls whisper this: staying at Canvas awakens an innate instinct for adventure.
Start from the ground up and allow the Canvas walls speak to you. The first floor, dubbed Underworld, is painted with otherworldly elements that'll leave the observer daunted. As you reach the second landing, drown out in awe as you explore Under The Sea, teeming with water creatures floating in colorful concrete. Trek the steps to Land at the third floor, as you imagine yourself at a hike through earthy ground and rich soil, and bask at the summit in the top and fourth floor, aptly called Sky and Mountain, where airy explorations await. See, your adventure has already begun—and you've only just arrived at the hotel.
