Panglao Island, Bohol Philippines
Alona Palm Beach Resort & Restaurant is
located on a slightly elevated area in the middle of a tropical
garden, spacious and quiet. A 60 meter wide coconut palm grove
divides the 12 luxury villas from the white beach. Almost all
villas offer pool, coconut palm grove and sea view. The open restaurant,
overlooking the pool and sea, offers excellent Filipino and international
cuisine, prepared by an experienced German chief.
All the villas are elegantly furnished, either
with a king size bed (180 x 200 cm) or two double sized beds (140
x 200 cm). Each villa is built with a terrace with sun beds, table,
chairs & ceiling fan and equipped with en-suite bathrooms,
split type air conditioners and ceiling fan, satellite TV, telephone
with dataport for Internet access, personal safe box, mini bar,
tea/coffeemaker and hairdryer.
What a treasure Alona Palm Beach Resort is indeed
with its luxurious villa accommodations and unobtrusive service,
making it a popular choice for honeymooners. The resort is immaculate
and well kept. Despite their odd shape, the rooms are spacious
and well appointed. The villas are built, in some consideration
with the natural terrain, such that each one offers a great view
of either the pool, the coconut palm grove, or the sea. Food and
beverage facilities are limited to an open-restaurant and a pool
bar. The menu, however, more than makes up for the lack of restaurant
choices. Many of those wanting a swim at the beach might not get
passed the pleasant and huge outdoor infinity pool located in
the center of the resort. Sport and recreation facilities offered
at the resort are few, but are in sync with the relaxed atmosphere.
The more active tourist can count on alternative options available
in nearby establishments located along Alona Beach. Rates provide
good value for money, and the staff’s friendly demeanor,
not to mention its proximity to world-class dive sites, make Alona
Palm Beach Resort one of Bohol’s best kept secrets –
up until now that is.
Separate accommodation can be offered for a
yaya/babysitter which accompanies a family, in a separate native
style building. The big bathrooms offer hot and cold shower, two
lavabos, toilet and a dressing table.
