After a couple of days of being out exploring the entire day, we wanted 2 days of not doing anything. And so, I started my research for our dream hotel. I wanted a bungalow, on the beach, so I can stay barefoot all day. And lots of palm trees that provides a pleasant shade throughout the day. With all this in mind, I found South Palms Resort Panglao.
As soon as you set foot at South Palms Resort Panglao, you’ll immediately notice how tranquil and serene the entire resort is. With such a quiet and peaceful atmosphere, South Palms Resort Panglao is the perfect place for people who actually want to relax, kick back and do nothing all day long. It is very hard not to fall in love with this resort.
As we stepped into the resort for the first time, I was impressed by the exteriors. I like the open air concept, with the cool breeze that emanates from the Bohol Sea. We were served a delicious welcome drink with a cold towel upon check-in, and then went to our beachfront bungalow. The room has all the essentials for a relaxing getaway and the bathroom is well-stocked. But despite the fine amenities, I could not turn my attention away from the white sands and the beach lying just in front of me.
They have activities like stand-up paddling, kayaking, and snorkeling that you can do free of charge. While doing this activities, you’ll see lots of starfishes in different colors and sizes. The beach is so calm and these activities are really great to enjoy. I suggest aqua shoes for better enjoyment. The hotel also has a basketball court, a tennis court, gym, billiard table, ping pong table, foosball table and they are all free of charge.
The spa is on the beach as well. Palm the Spa offers all sorts of relaxation. I tried their signature massage and it was very nice. What delivered it for me was the sea breeze and the sound of the waves softly crashing into the shore as all my worries melt away! Just book ahead of time as they only have 4 spa cottages by the beach. Otherwise, you can have your massage right inside your room instead. Or another great option is to relax in one of the beds on the beach.
We loved our stay here and got to relax before heading to explore Coron Island. If you ever find yourself visiting this beautiful island, make sure to check the availability for this hotel as well. You will not regret it!
