It’s a shame that I’ve travelled out of the country these past few months MORE than visiting the islands. Beach bumming is one thing I truly miss, and I don’t want to be in Phuket or Bali for that because the Philippines has some of the world’s most beautiful beaches!
My envy meter has escalated because my media friend Jingjing sent me these photos of her recent vacation in Henann Resort, the latest luxury resort to open in the booming island of Bohol.
Henann is formerly the Alona Palm Beach Resort which has now been acquired by the Boracay Regency Group of Resorts. It is situated on a slightly elevated area along the powdery white stretch of Alona Beach.The resort has the widest beach front along Alona Beach and also features a 450- square meter fresh water swimming pool with bar.
The villas are separated by 70-meter wide coconut palm groves from the white beach.Each villa is equipped with a split-type air conditioner and ceiling fan, terrace with sun beds, LCD TV with cable, telephone with IDD and NDD, WIFI access, personal safety box, and mini bar.
Because they are still on soft opening, Henann Resort at Alona Beach is offering a rate of only P9,240 net per night for a stay in any one of their twelve exclusive villas with swimming pool, a view of lush tropical gardens, palm groves and of course, a short walk to the sea. The promo is inclusive of complimentary Filipino or American breakfast for two and is good until September 30, 2011.
The province of Bohol is only an hour away by plane from Manila. Land transfers from provincial capital Tagbilaran City to Henann Resort takes 30-45 minutes.
Aside from the Chocolate Hills and the Philippine Tarsier, Bohol is famous for its tourist attractions such as the Dauis Church, Blood Compact Shrine, Magsaysay Camp, and Loboc River. Popular activities in this island include bird spotting in Rajah Sikatuna National Park, diving in Panglao Island and whale and dolphin watching in Bohol Sea, among others.
