If you’re bound to go to the island of Bohol in the Philippines and you’re looking for a hotel to stay in, you might have come across all the rave reviews about Amorita Resort which will make you want to stay there. That’s what happened to the Greek Mister and I as we were looking for a property to stay in during this leg of our trip. It was a little bit beyond our budget considering that we were planning on staying in the island for 6 days and 5 nights but, no matter how good the reviews are in all the other cheaper resorts around the area, somehow our hearts were being tugged towards booking Amorita Resort instead. And so we gave in and boy, was it the best decision we’ve ever made.
The resort did not fall short to our expectations, in fact it has exceeded it even so. The location, the service, the facilities and the whole property itself will make your holiday in this little piece of paradise a memorable one. I must say though that it’s the service of their staff which made everything worthwhile. From the moment we were picked up from the pier upon arrival and dropped off at Tagbilaran airport for our departure, the service provided by the staff of Amorita resort was impeccable.
The resort grounds was wonderful, set atop a cliff with the commanding views of the whole stretch of Alona Beach, I don’t think any other resorts can beat that. Greeneries surrounding the whole property adds that touch of nature in an otherwise very modern facilities of the resort.
We booked a deluxe room which out of our own silliness, we overlooked that it was a twin bedded room. So we ended up having two double beds for the two of us, not that we mind sleeping in separate beds because that’s actually quite a welcome treat for the Greek Mister and myself. Lol. The rooms were huge with a minimalist and modern design. A plush couch at one corner which overlooks the hotel grounds adds warmth into the design. The only thing missing was the presence of an in-room safe which for a 5-star property, I was expecting to be available. Also, the promise of free wifi inside the room was non-existent as we can only access the wifi in public areas.
Breakfast was served at Saffron restaurant which focuses mainly on Filipino fare. It works well for me but didn’t quite work for the Greek Mister who’s not very keen to eat such a heavy meal early in the morning. Another concern I have was that the breakfast timing was quite too early for me, from 6:30am to 9:30am. How do you expect someone on a holiday wake up that early for breakfast? Specially someone whose body clock is 5 hours late due to the time difference that we’re used to, like us.
Amorita resort has 2 pools, the main one in front of the famed Saffron restaurant was huge with a kiddie pool. Temperature was just right and the water doesn’t reek of chlorine. The second pool was by their bar which offers a stunning view of Alona beach. A great place to be during sunset. They also have a spa which I was able to try and an in-house diving facility as well.
The location I must say is Amorita’s prime selling point, it gives you immediate access to one of Bohol’s most pristine beaches – Alona Beach and the restaurants/bar that lines up this popular tourist area. Having dinner and drinks at one of the beachfront restaurants wasn’t ever a problem for us during our entire stay there.
Our supposed 6D/5N stay was shortened by one night due to a mishap we faced with our flight. That one night we missed really made a difference as we really can easily stay for a week or even two in Amorita Resort. It was that wonderful.
