South Palms Resort, Panglao
The sheer size and beauty of the beach hits you the minute you walk into South Palms Resort, you really will think you’ve arrived in paradise – of all the resorts in this region South Palms really can boast the best shoreline. We are talking azure turquoise blue water, white than white powder soft sand as far as the eye can see, backed with rows of palm trees and behind that, the resort rooms. Even better, this is a completely unspoilt private beach but the lively little town of Alona Beach, with its lively bars and local restaurants, is just 10 minutes away making it an ideal location for those who like to get out and explore in the evenings.
South Palm Resort
Don’t expect five star here on Bohol, the standard of this resort is four star with a traditional local feel, the rooms are tucked amongst the palm trees that line the beach. Deluxe Beachfront and Garden Rooms are all the same, just in two rows, the front having sea views and well worth the upgrade. You can sit out on your veranda or swing in a hammock in front of your room gazing out to sea. Rooms are quite simple but spacious with a bright contemporary tropical style and if you upgrade to the Premium Beachfront Room you’ll have a separate living area (although this is not air conditioned so wouldn’t be ideal as a sleeping area for children). All rooms can accommodate two adults and two children
Facilities include two small pools, one behind the beach and the other tucked neatly between the rooms and more suited to families. Oceanica Seafood Restaurant offers local and international dishes throughout the day and the Coast Pool Bar is a hive of activity during sunset where the cocktails are flowing and the views are to die for.
This gorgeous resort is such great value for money, an ideal escape for those looking for simple rustic living, restaurants close by and a touch of adventure, with Bohol offering so much, if you can tear yourself away from THAT beach.
