Secluded atop a limestone cliff, Amorita Resort’s strategic location gives you breathtaking views of the vibrant tropical landscape of Bohol. It is quietly hidden on the Southern edge of Alona Beach in the beautiful island of Panglao, where some of the best eco-marine life can be found.
Before this trip, our only goal was to see the Chocolate Hills and meet the world-famous Tarsier. We did not really expect much with the accommodation just as long as we will fulfil our mission in Bohol. But with Amorita Resort’s offerings, we made a massive change in our itinerary! From the moment we were welcomed by the courteous staff, to us enjoying the outdoor and water activities, up until our departure, Amorita Resort gave us a perfect taste of what Bohol has to offer. Our stay here truly exceeded our expectations, and we can’t wait to be back for another memorable retreat, with our loved ones next time around.
The Deluxe Room may be Amorita’s most basic accommodation, but the minute we entered the room, we felt like it was a suite! The room is equipped with most of the amenities of its more expensive counterparts, which include a complimentary minibar, coffee and tea facility, flat screen TV with amplifiers, in-room safe, and free WiFi. Our favourite part? The complimentary minibar, of course! We enjoyed the healthy specially curated calamansi and lemon grass drinks, all for FREE! Thanks, Amorita!
Since we wanted to know how it feels like to sleep in Amorita’s suites, we decided to upgrade! It was more spacious and has its own patio where you can start your day with a breath of fresh air. Although we did not get to enjoy the view of the Bohol Sea, the tranquil garden view was a relaxing alternative!
Two of our friends joined us on our trip so instead of getting an additional room, the friendly staff of Amorita suggested the more luxurious Sea View Suite. Once we heard the suite’s name, we knew we were making the right choice! Imagine the Junior Suite’s room size doubled, your own living room with daybeds where our friends comfortably slept, a dining area, and a private balcony with outdoor bathtub overlooking the entire Bohol Sea!
This room category has luxury written all over it! The ultra-luxurious and spacious bedroom suites are perfect for your barkada or family getaway. We were lucky enough to step foot in their 2 Bedroom Suite where we felt like celebrities enjoying a vacation away from the limelight. The private balcony gave us an exhilarating view of the Bohol landscape. It was truly breathtaking!
Enjoy more privacy with the Garden Villa. Imagine yourself being surrounded by lush greenery while plunging in your own pool or taking afternoon naps in your private patio! The moment we saw the exclusive pool, we instantly felt the urge to strip down to our swimsuits and take a dip. It was that enticing!
The Ocean Villa is basically the same as the Garden Villa, but with the Bohol sea as your backdrop! It was such an amazing experience to dip in the pool while enjoying the sun and looking at the stunning view of the entire Panglao landscape. With all the amenities that Ocean Villa has to offer, we had second thoughts about even stepping out of the resort throughout our stay!
Bohol is known for its world-class diving and snorkelling sites. At Amorita Resort, you will be given the opportunity to explore the underwater biodiversity in their own marine sanctuary. Since we didn’t have much experience in diving, it was great to know that Amorita Resort has its own diving centre with professional divers who taught us the essentials of diving! It was a surreal experience seeing the unexploited waters of Bohol, especially with the colourful corals and different types of marine creatures. If you’re that lucky, you might even experience close encounters with the elusive manta rays, cute dolphins, harmless sharks and colossal whales!
Amorita Resort has wellness facilities that remove all the accumulated stress from the hustle and bustle of the city life. We started our holistic retreat by navigating the nature-ridden Amorita property using their complimentary bicycles. Then, we headed over to the Sea Tree Spa for the traditional Filipino hilot and Asian healing rituals done by their expert masseurs. Ahh, this is by far the most soothing massage and spa experience we’ve ever had. After that, we joined their free yoga sessions and art expression workshop which are available for small groups.
We completed our Amorita experience by treating our taste buds (and stomachs) to a gustatory feast at the resort’s Saffron Restaurant and Tomar Tapas x Bar! The Saffron Restaurant offers a reinterpretation of Bohol’s authentic specialties, alongside a wide array of Continental and Filipino food choices.
On the other hand, the Tomar Tapas x Bar provides a Neo-cultural experience with their reinvention of Spanish favourites, including Tapas, Paellas, and Pintxos.
For lunch, we ate at the Saffron and ordered a local favourite called Chicken Binakol. It is a popular dish in the Visayas region made of native chicken stewed in coconut juice with lemongrass. It tasted like Chicken Tinola, but with coconut juice! It was really delightful. Dinner came, and we decided to dine at the Tomar Tapas x Bar. Obviously, what stood out the most was their delicious spread of Tapas!
2017 marks the 10th year of Amorita Resort. The resort has chosen the theme “Love Amorita” to celebrate its first decade, which perfectly encapsulates their role as a witness to the countless marriage proposals, weddings, honeymoons, family reunions and anniversaries. Knowing this, we immediately wanted to go home to our families, bring them to Amorita, and create memorable, heartwarming experiences just like their many guests whose lives were greatly touched. We’ll definitely be back next time!
Your children will have the most wonderful time with the different child-centred activities offered in Amorita. It all starts with how all children below 12 years old can stay here for FREE! The little ones are then being spoiled with treats such as popsicles, candy buffet and eat-all-you-can ice cream during meal time. They also have a playground and a daily happy hour for kids where they can enjoy activities that cater to a variety of interests including cookie-decorating, pizza-making, film showings, and arts and crafts. Oh, did we mention that they have babysitting services for parents’ convenience? With all these awesome treats, we will surely bring our little ones when we’re back for another visit!
Stay in shape while on vacation with complimentary use of Amorita’s gym complete with treadmill, stationary bikes, cross trainer, weights, and other equipment. You can also vigorously exercise while exploring the Bohol countryside with the resort’s bicycles or enjoy the Bohol sea with the free use of their kayaks and stand-up paddle boards! We were very happy to explore the five-hectare property of Amorita using their bicycles, and it was a nature trip like no other!
Sample a variety of tapas and unlimited wine at Tomar Tapas x Bar.
