With most getaway destinations offering the same experiences and amenities, how does one stand out?
Breaking away from the pack of the cobalt-water-and-fine-shore-flaunting destinations, Bohol has allowed itself to go beyond the usual sand and sea escape by offering travelers a distinct experience that shows off its artistic, cultural, historical and culinary values. And serving as a gateway to all the different offerings that Asia’s “Next Bali” offers is Amorita Resort.
“We consider Amorita as one of Bohol’s best-kept secrets,” shares Nikki Cauton, General Manager. “Resorts can either claim to be an adventure-packed destination; or a tranquil, relaxing hub. Amorita combines these two with ease, making it perfect for families, honeymooners, or tourists with diverse needs.”
Nestled atop a seaside cliff overlooking the famed Alona Beach, Amorita Resort offers visitors what is arguably the most captivating view of Bohol Sea—a feature that in itself makes it a cut above the rest. “In a time when privacy has become the ultimate luxury, what we’re offering is the chance to be completely tranquil and undisturbed.”
And Amorita takes seclusion very seriously. For instance, each of the resort’s Ocean View Villa has an expansive pocket garden, a private “plunge pool,” and a sun deck that is ideal for intimate moments or a cold dip after a hot day of touring or sunbathing at the beach. Its Garden View Villas, Sky Suites and Deluxe Rooms, on the other hand, offer the same easy comfort and convenience.
In addition, Amorita Resort’s Infinity Pool and Leisure Area allow guests to enjoy an array of activities without having to leave the comfort of the resort. Here, they can relax and enjoy a selection of books, board games, fooz ball or table tennis.
Amorita is also a place where you can enjoy both authentic local and international cuisines. The resort’s centerpiece, the Saffron Restaurant (named after the glorious color of the sunset) and The Deck offer a one-of-a-kind selection that includes genuine Boholano cuisines and the celebrated Luy-a Degustation (Ginger-based dishes).
A five-course gastronomic fare that tastefully combines ginger-based French, Pan-Asian and Filipino classics, the Luy-a Degustation presents familiar favorites like fresh tuna kinilaw set on mango carpaccio with spiced coconut sauce and coconut and ginger sorbet, in a new light—allowing anyone to better appreciate the subtle delicacy and spicy tang of this humble spice.
A signature offering that puts the spotlight on the best cuisines native to the province, Amorita’s line-up of Boholano cuisines features heritage recipes passed through the generations, as well as tasteful reinterpretations of local favorites like chicken binakol and balbacua.
“We’d like to reiterate that Amorita is more than just a haven for relaxation,” explains Nikki. “We also offer a myriad of activities for the daring at heart: from snorkeling to island hopping, diving, and an eco-adventure trip in Catigbian, among others. We’ve got you covered.”
Nikki adds that Amorita, in partnership with the Philippine Bohol Arts Foundation (PBAFI), has come up with special tours intended to highlight some of the previously “unexplored” attractions of Bohol, allowing tourists to experience authentic Boholano life, art, culture, and history. “The requisite Bohol visit would include a stopover at the Chocolate Hills and a visit to the tarsiers; but really, Bohol has so much more to offer in terms of cuisine, arts and culture. And these are experiences that we want to surface through our exclusive tours.”
“I have been blessed to have been welcomed to Bohol with open arms,” Nikki ends. “And letting people get to know, taste, feel and experience a Bohol that goes beyond the usual is something I hope I can offer and let people experience inside of Amorita.”
