Resting on the southernmost tip of the biodiverse UNESCO site Panglao Island, the Bellevue Resort Bohol is a leader in luxe getaways that maintains an unobtrusive presence and aesthetic, building around nature rather than over it. Noted for its environmentally-friendly systems, programmes, and overall design, the hotel has recently been acclaimed by the ASEAN as a certified Green Hotel.
After a restorative morning at the spa, gear up for diving, watersports, or trips around the island. For an active stay-in day at the hotel, a game of Ultimate Frisbee or beach soccer is perfect. The resort has also incorporated its environmental thrust in its activity line-up. Together with hotel staff, guests may help at the regular coastal clean-up drives and tree planting programs.
With earthy and sylvan veneers and soft lighting, each well-decked room reflects harmony between man and nature by maintaining modern, comfortable amenities all while utilising technologies that keep energy consumption low. True to its name, the premiere 102-sqm Bellevue suite offers a visual and tactile treat with its balcony featuring an outdoor Jacuzzi.
Tuck in at premium dining establishments that maintain farm-to-table practices where ingredients are sourced from the hotel’s very own vegetable and herb garden. Al Fresco-style meals at the open-air Marea feature the freshest catch of the day from the fishermen of Panglao Island and the rest of Bohol. Must-tries are the halang-halang style chicken and nilarang pagi or exotic stingray. International classics find local expressions alongside Filipino favourites at the Lamian World Cuisine breakfast buffet. Mixologists at the Flujo Bar serve up their signature mojitos, piña coladas, and daiquiris to either unwind after a day’s dive or spice up the mood before rounds of storytelling.
The resort holds true to its green repute. The recycling and reusing of non-biodegradable waste minimises the hotel's environmental footprint. Here, sustainability is more than a buzzword as biodegradable wastes are shredded and fermented and undergo anaerobic composting underground for two weeks. The rhythms of nature permeate the resort as this compost nourishes the hotel’s gardens, including its vegetable supply.
Whether staying in or exploring out, the Bellevue Resort Bohol truly offers a belle of a world-view, literally and figuratively. Like a bee taking pollen without harming the flower, the hotel looks forward to co-creating your warmest memories.
