Luxury Philippines Honeymoons

The Philippines is a collection of over 7000 islands, all with something different to offer, but pretty much all with idyllic white beaches and crystal clear turquoise sea. So, if picture perfect beach is an important ingredient in your honeymoon then The Philippines is an ideal destination for you. However, there is so much more on offer than just a beach, so if you like your beach honeymoon mixed in with a little activity, adventure or stunning scenery then The Philippines is an even more ideal honeymoon choice – imagine diving or snorkelling on some of the world best coral reefs, kayaking amongst giant limestone cliffs, picnicking on a remote island and then enjoying a romantic meal on a floating raft surrounded by turquoise lagoons – you’ll find it all here! Turquoise Holidays has unravelled the complexities of getting around the Philippines, sought out the most exquisite islands and sampled the best resort to help you create a honeymoon of a lifetime.

The Most Romantic Philippines Resorts

The Philippines is home to some stunning resorts, located in sublime locations. Choose your luxury - from castaway islands surrounded by turquoise lagoons, hidden retreats surrounded by spectacular limestone scenery in Palawan, or for a little nightlife you could include a few nights stay on the lively island of Boracay or Panglao. Shangri-La Boracay really does tick the boxes for those seeking a beautiful luxurious resort, a perfect beach, access to local restaurants and plenty of facilities. It is one of the larger resorts in the Philippines but has a unique charm and really impressed us. El Nido is a region within Palawan with a number of resorts, our top pics are El Nido Lagen for four star hospitality and plenty of activities in this spectacular region. For the ultimate retreat El Nido Pangulasian Island really is a stunner, located on a long stretch of white sand beach, surrounded by the impressive scenery of Bacuit Bay – utterly romantic. For those with the budget then Amanpulo is worth every penny – trust us – it’s gorgeous and in our opinion, the perfect honeymoon retreat.

Choosing the Right Island for Your Honeymoon

For nature and adventure lovers Bohol is a beautiful natural island, covered with jungle clad mountains, rice paddies and scattered with charming local villages. At its heart are the famous Chocolate Hills, a unique collection of hills so called as in the dry season they turn brown and resemble Hershey’s Kisses! Enjoy a day tour to see the smallest primates in the world – Tarsiers, cute little creatures about the size of a squirrel with huge eyes, cruise down the river observing local life along its banks, see how rice is grown and walk amongst the chocolate hills. Stay in nearby Panglao, linked by a short bridge from Bohol and home to some charming romantic retreats. Boracay is one of the best known and most popular islands of the Philippines due to its four kilometre white sand beach which is lined with hotels, restaurants and bars. The sand is so powder soft it squeaks between your toes and is pure white, the sea turquoise and great for snorkelling and diving. Whilst it is a busy little island it also has a unique charm and is not tacky or spoilt – it is fun and vibrant and perfect for those looking to include a bit of nightlife in their honeymoon. Stunning Palawan is a collection of islands in the west of the Philippines including the island of Coron and El Nido, both famous for their impressive limestone karst scenery, azure lagoons and amazing snorkelling and diving. Stay in one of the resorts tucked away within the bays and coves of this dramatic landscape – this is the part of your honeymoon where you’ll feel castaway in a remote hideaway retreat.

The Most Beautiful Beaches in the Philippines

It’s hard to pick the best beach as pretty much the whole of The Philippines is littered with long stretches of powder soft white sand beach. You really can’t go wrong and if a perfect beach is top of your honeymoon wish list then The Philippines is perfect for you. Boracay is a favourite as the beach is simply beautiful and there is a lively nightlife scene for those who like a touch of atmosphere with their cast away retreat. However the beaches of El Nido in Palawan do get our vote for scenery as the beaches tend to be small hidden coves surrounded by dramatic limestone scenery. On Panglao, near Bohol, the beach in front of South Palms Resort really does take some beating, the resort offers simple Filipino hospitality but the beach will take your breath away.
