Amanpulo Resort: Paradise on Earth
Amapulo Resort is the Best Resort in the Philippines
If you ask me what is my favorite place to relax here on Earth, I will answer only one - the beautiful island resort of Amanpulo.
Not that I can afford to go there but I'm one of the few lucky ones who
was able to go there and go there for free. And let me tell you, my
trips there had made me realize that, for me, nothing can compare to
this resort. Let me describe why.
Amanpulo is an island-resort in Palawan, Philippines. It is a member of the Amanresorts, those luxurious resort hotels located around the globe. An award-winning resort, it is simply simply beautiful.
The resort boasts of 40 casitas (small houses) in the style of Philippines "bahay-kubo". Five casitas are located on the hillside, four on treetops and the rest just in front of the pristine white beach. If you chose the last, you will only be a few steps away from the beautiful shore. Each casita comes with its own king-size bed, flat TV and CD/DVD player. But that's only half of the casita. The other half is dedicated to the spacious bathroom, with its own jacuzzi and walk-in closet.
The resort is surrounded by white, very fine sand (so fine that you cannot use them in the aquarium because they will clog the water's passageway) and clear blue waters (did I mention there are also a lot of corals surrounding the resort?). Beach and sea lovers who want to relax in a peaceful quiet place will really enjoy this place. The food is great (they have a first-class chef), the staff are friendly, the view is spectacular and the environment, restful. If you want to venture out into the sea and to other islands, you can go island-hopping, snorkeling and scuba diving.
Some of my pictures from this place are attached for your enjoyment. If you want to know more about Amanpulo, just go to http://www.amanresorts.com/amanpulo/resort.aspx.
