Review: Panglao Island Nature Resort in Bohol

I didn't get a  chance to write about our trip to Bohol so I'm posting some pictures including a review of the resort we stayed at -- Panglao Island Nature Resort and Spa.

Panglao Island is about a 20-minute drive from the Tagbilaran Airport. We stayed at the very roomy forest bungalow. Below are some pictures of room features and resort amenities.

The rooms are well stocked with bottled water and other drinks, and even include a generous amount of fresh fruits and Bohol peanut kisses, one of the island's well-known delicacies. They also provide house slippers and a luxurious bathrobe to use. Our three day, two night package included buffet breakfasts and dinners which featured a wide variety of food to choose from. The local musicians that serenaded us at dinner created such a beautiful ambiance. 

The resort itself was picturesque and we were surrounded by exotic plants and trees. There is also a koi fish pond in front of our room. The infinity pool is perfectly situated and gives you a nice view of a man-made island they called the Dream Islet. You can actually walk to the island as this is used for events and functions such as weddings. 

Lastly, the courteous and hospitable staff of the resort made our short stay wonderful. We were well attended and extremely satisfied. I would recommend this resort to anyone visiting the beautiful island of Bohol.

thank you. im so excited na, be there by august and staying also in a forest bungalow. btw, are we allowed to bring pasalubongs like food and stuffs inside the resort? i saw a pic na food and beverages are prohibited, even pasalubongs?

I don't think they'll check your bags. As long as your not eating them in the dining room or something, I think it should be fine. We bought pasalubong from the day trips as well and my cousins even brought home the free goodies/fruits they had in our rooms.

Thanks August Empress for the cool background!
