After CFB’s overnight retreat at Momo Beach House, we leveled it up and stayed at the luxurious Panglao resort, Amorita. The property is set at the crest of a limestone cliff on the southern edge of Panglao Island where guests are treated with a stunning view of the cerulean Bohol sea. Amorita boasts of world class service with the signature Filipino hospitality in a tranquil seaside setting.
After the quick check-in process, we headed straight to our rooms and lulled for a few minutes before heading to lunch. Fellow CFB Marco and I stayed at a 40-square meter Junior Suite which features a spacious designer interior. The room even had enough space for us to do OOTDs with ease. And I must say, the bed was extremely comfortable.
The Junior Suite’s amenities include cable TV, high-speed internet, in-room safe, coffee and tea making facility and a fridge/bar with free refreshments. And I just love how Amorita spoils their guests with pastries and chips. <3
Amorita has only 98 luxurious rooms amidst a vibrant tropical landscape, giving guests outmost exclusivity and privacy.
Amorita has two food and beverage outlets namely Saffron Restaurant and Tomar Tapas X Bar.
Saffron Restaurant offers a thoughtful interpretation of Boholano heritage cuisine, alongside a wide range of continental and asian food favorites. The outlet also holds an excellent selection of wines and signature cocktails. It is set beside one of the resort’s infinity pools, giving it a dramatic and refreshing ambiance.
Saffron Restaurant was the dinner and breakfast venue during our stay. I love desserts and I particularly fell for the Kinampay – a local sweet, smooth ube dessert made from Bohol purple yam. And those baked oysters are soo good as well.
Tomar is to drink in Spanish. It’s literally obvious that this is where you grab a drink to get your fill of fine wines and house specialty concoctions.
But Tomar Tapas X Bar is more than just a wine and cocktail lounge but also the place to get stuffed with delectable Spanish cuisine with a touch of local Boholano flavors. The kitchen serves Spanish food which stages a feeling of bringing its guests’ palates back to the colonial times where tapas, paellas and pintxos are table staples. I highly recommend the croquettas and the paellas. Delicioso!
Around the Resort
Amorita’s organic modern aesthetic sends out a distinct island ambiance that’s affluently Amorita. It is calming to just walk around the walkways with lush greens and along pockets of mini floral gardens.
A great view of Alona Beach is visible from one of the infinity pools of Amorita. And if you fancy the beach, there’s a quick path by the lobby going to Alona. You can go for a dip, SUP boarding or kayaking in the azure-colored waters of Bohol sea. And at night, Alona becomes the place to be to chill out and drink, as the stretch of restaurants turn on those inviting warm lights and pumps up some music.
But Alona Beach can get a bit crowded. So if you want to swim in saline water minus the big crowd, head your way down to the secret Angel Cove at the west wing of the property.
There are two sleek infinity pools in the property – one beside Saffron Restaurant and the other just behind the lobby lounge which offers a great view of Alona Beach.
It’s easy to fall in love with Amorita because the property is simply stunning and serene.Truly an ideal place to unwind and relax.
