Exploring Amorita Resort in Panglao Bohol

I recently had a pleasure of staying at Amorita Resort a luxury boutique resort hotel located in Panglao Island of Bohol. Aside from Amorita’s known simple but elegant beauty, what I find endearing about this resort is its award-winning service. The people are welcoming, warm, and kind – an impeccable representation of what Filipino hospitality is all about.

As it is impossible to summarize my thoughts about my Amorita Resort experience in one blog post, I have made it into a four-part Amorita blog series.

The first part was all about the Junior Suite I have stayed in, the second part is this post which will show more about Amorita, and the third part will be about the dining options in Amorita. There will also be a blog post about Amorita’s sister hotel, Momo Beach House which is also in Bohol.

Our trip to Bohol is made possible by AirAsia Philippines, the official airline partner of Bohol. AirAsia flies to Bohol several times a day. If you are planning to visit Bohol, you may book an AirAsia flight here. While you’re at it, I strongly suggest that you pre-book a meal and try out some of their various offering from their new Santan In-flight menu. The Chicken Lasagne is really good I am telling you.

Located at the southern edge of Panglao Island in Bohol, Amorita Resort sits atop a limestone cliff that gives it a beautiful view of Bohol sea along the stretch of Alona Beach. Amorita in Spanish means dearly loved, little love, or little darling. A very apt name for this resort in Bohol because once you get to know it, you will certainly love the place dearly.

It is only 40-minute drive away from Tagbilaran Airport.

Amorita Resort Bohol is managed by One-Of Collection group which also manages Momo Beach House located also in Bohol, Sta Monica Beach Club in Dumaguete City, and The Funny Lion located in Coron Palawan. One-of Collection aims to provide each guest with unforgettable destination experiences and happy memories from check-in to check-out to any of their properties.

Based on my experience at Amorita Resort, I can say that One-Of Collection is doing a pretty good job in living up to their hallmark of providing guests with unforgettable experiences. It is no wonder that Amorita Resort recently bagged the Best for Service Award in Condé Nas Johansens Awards for Excellence 2017.  This international recognition goes to show that Amorita Resort is committed into providing the best for their guests.

Another thing that is remarkably noteworthy about One-of Collection is its Project Echo. Project Echo is created to transform One-of Collection’s boutique resorts into sustainable leisure destinations. It is the initiative to integrate sustainability as a business strategy by applying organic modern architecture and green designs of the resorts. It also fosters local community engagement and cultural heritage preservation to create authentic and one-of-a-kind guest experiences.

As you can see in the previous post where I let you take a peek of our Junior Suite room, the Project Echo initiative is very palpable.

When in Amorita, guests may enjoy a relaxing dip at Amorita’s two infinity pools with a breathtaking view. They may also enjoy a swim in the clear waters of the Bohol Sea or stroll along the white sands of Alona Beach. If they love to enjoy the beautiful sea but prefer to have a privacy, guests may also enjoy the beautiful private beach within Amorita’s property exclusive for their guests.

For a more exciting adventure, guests may also enjoy water activities at Amorita such as kayak, stand-up paddle board, or snorkel and dive to discover Panglao’s amazing marine life.  Bikes are available at Amorita and guests who wish to tour around Panglao while riding a bike may borrow it. There are also foosball, table tennis, and gym in the property which guests may also enjoy.

For a relaxing activity, guests may book a relaxing massage at the Sea Tree Spa. Just be sure to book ahead of time. My roommate Kat and I planned on splurging for a luxurious massage during our stay, unfortunately, we were told that the spa was fully booked. So, be sure to book them in advance. For book lovers, there are also books they can borrow at Amorita’s Azotea which they can enjoy while enjoying an Afternoon Tea between 2-5pm at Saffron Restaurant.

It is also worth mentioning that Amorita has several function rooms which guests may book should they want to celebrate an important occasion while enjoying the beautiful Amorita Resort and the delicious food banquet and options it offers. I could imagine Amorita to be a great backdrop for a beautiful wedding especially if held by the beautiful Cliff Side Deck. It also has a boutique for guests who wants to purchase souvenirs while in Bohol.

We were lucky that during our visit, we were given a chance not just to tour the property but to check out rooms, suites, and even villas. The chance further steels my resolve to revisit Amorita again, but with my parents and siblings this time.  Who could blame me, the entire Amorita property was beautiful and the I fell in love with the villas which I deem perfect to share with family.

Now the one I am eyeing, the one I am really planning to book when I revisit Amorita with my parents was the Two Bedroom Pool Villa. It is very spacious in its 240sq size and it also features personal pool by the patio overlooking a beautiful garden. This villa is good for 4 persons but it is big enough to accommodate more than that.
