Amorita Resort Panglao, Bohol: A World-class Travel Destination

Alona Beach View From Amorita

The sun was rising. The wind was whispering. And I, sitting, savoring the moment and intensely adoring the beauty of nature. It was a lovely morning, my 2nd day stay at Amorita Resort in the beautiful Island of Panglao, Bohol, touted as Asia’s “Next Bali”.  Absolute tranquility!

Indeed, a sight to behold!
This you can only eye-witness if you are staying at Amorita’s View Deck.


March 1, I received a phone invitation from Jules of GeiserMaclang re “3-Day Bohol Tour.”  A complete bliss I felt but could not give my decision right away since the tour fell on weekdays – meaning, working days. And so I asked for an extension for me to give my “NO” or “YES”.  The next day, an email invitation + itinerary was forwarded on my email. I read it and, OH MY!!! It blew my mind – a tour to see Bohol in a different light and to experience beyond Bohol’s usual attractions. I hurriedly sent a private message to my superior requesting a 3-day vacation leave. I was very lucky that my request was granted in less than 5-minute Skype-conversation. Hooray!!!  OFF TO BOHOL.


We (bloggers & journalists) arrived at Tagbilaran Port, where Amorita’s Van Service awaited, around 11:30am after almost 2 hours of sea travel via OceanJet from Cebu Pier 1. From the port to the resort, the travel time was approximately 30 minutes.

At Amorita’s reception area, we were warmly greeted by the resort’s staffs. We checked-in then proceeded to Saffron Restaurant for lunch. The Resort Manager, Mr. James San Deigo, joined us as he gave background on what would happen on the whole tour and sharing a little history of the resort. A sumptuous lunch, we had. From the appetizer to the main course and to the dessert, thumbs up! (Boholano cuisines e.g. Chicken Binakol, Balbacua were served at our dining.)

By mid-afternoon, while staying in a deluxe room, we were pampered by the resort’s massage therapists’. It was an hour of sleep-inducing and over-relaxing whole body massage – a perfect breather after a long trip. After that, we had our own time wandering around Amorita and use its amenities – infinity pool, leisure area, etc.

Looking at the photo above, it indeed is a secluded place. If you are after for a place to unwind, to leave worries behind, to think of nothing, I am sure you will love this place. “Divine Abode”, you will get.

So what makes Amorita Resort a world-class travel destination? Amorita will let the guests and travelers see the other side of Bohol and experience beyond the usual attractions. Ever been to Chocolate Hills, tarsiers and Bilar’s Mahogany man-made forest? Don’t worry, Bohol has myriads to offer and through Amorita, surely, you will discover a lot of things and will learn to appreciate and love Bohol more.

Water Activities, Culinary Expeditions, Cultural Experiences, Adrenaline Rush Adventure… all these, I experienced during the whole tour.


This is an ultimate gastronomic food tour that Amorita can offer to its Guests.   We were able to experience authentic European cuisines offered by Panglao Island’s best restaurants.


The island is a 30-minute boat drive away from the resort. Snorkeling to this island is a must try to all underwater world enthusiasts. Great sights await.


You will experience authentic Boholano life, art, culture, and history.  Cloribel House, Irma Bunachita’s Workshop and Dauis Church


This is Bohol’s newest adventure site. It is an hour of heart-pumping and knee-trembling activities. Canopy Walk, Monkey Bridge, Zip-line, and Trek to Dagook Falls.


This is a five-course gastronomic fare that tastefully combines ginger-based French, Pan-Asian and Filipino classics.

A distinct 3-day BOHOL experience I had.

My heartfelt gratitude to Amorita Resort.

This is not the end, watch me as I will uncover my experiences in details on my future post.
