The name "ISLANDIA" is derived from the fact that Alaminos City is the "Home of the Hundred Islands National Park"
Islandia Hotel is the investment of several overseas Alaminians wanting to help the economy of their hometown. One of the investors tells of his desire to give back to Alaminos City in a Philippines Daily Inquirer article:
"Natives of this coastal city now living abroad were only too happy to give back to the community that had nurtured them.
Renato Natividad, 49, a nurse working in New York, was among the 60 natives who returned. A majority flew in from the United States while some came from Canada, Germany and Saudi Arabia.
Natividad, captivated by the city's raw beauty, decided to invest. He and four other cousins working abroad pooled their money and last year, set up Islandia Hotel in Barangay Palamis. Their first guests were candidates for the Miss Earth beauty pageant."
