During my recent trip to Bohol together with a couple of blogger friends and a few media acquaintances through the kindness of AirAsia Philippines, Bohol Tourism, the Bohol local government and USAID-COMPETE we stayed at the beautiful South Palms Resort Panglao.
Draped in a blanket of green that cascades into half a mile of white sand beach, the longest stretch there is in the entire island, South Palms Resort Panglao stands out with its unique blend of spectacular seascape, cool private villas and warm Boholano hospitality.
South Palms Resort Panglao is one incredible place. It is a sprawling resort with rooms lined up side-by-side along its vast ground, all situated beside the beach. It is far from those typical high-rise hotels that we have become accustomed to.
It is everything you are looking for in a resort and so much more.
South Palms Resort Panglao has it all
Here are just some of the amazing amenities and places you can enjoy at South Palms Resort Panglao.
Fitness Gym (open 24-hours)
They even have an ATM nearby for folks with sudden shortages of cash. Whew! That’s a relief!
The rooms offered by South Palms Resort Panglao are amazing. They have a variety of rooms to choose from depending on your needs. The room my wife and I got was the Deluxe Garden View.
Very comfortable beds, split-type airconditioning, hot and cold water, a clean and very presentable bathroom, refrigerator, cable TV and more.
It is everything Boracay resorts are AND aren’t. And that’s the beauty of it. How so, you ask?
South Palms Resort Panglao, as with most other areas of Bohol, has all the powdery white sand beaches that Boracay boasts of. In fact, some areas even have unbelievably finer sand, believe it or not.
What South Palms Resort Panglao thankfully doesn’t have which, sadly, Boracay resorts have plenty of, is the maddening crowd and non-stop party atmosphere.
As soon as you set foot at South Palms Resort Panglao, you’ll immediately notice how tranquil and serene the entire establishment is. Yes, you may be able to hear music every now and then from the bar area, but it doesn’t distract the least bit from the place’s much sought after serenity.
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 destress. It is very hard not to fall in love with this resort.
The long stretch of sand and water at South Palms Resort Panglao is just as breathtaking as it is captivating. And with over 1,000 palm trees planted all over the place, it will most definitely give you an amazing feel of paradise.

I encourage you to come to Bohol especially during their upcoming “Visit Bohol 2015” campaign. Experience the wonder of this extraordinary province, the sights and sounds, as well as its beautiful people.
Visit Bohol 2015
The “Visit Bohol” campaign forms part of the Bohol Tourism Action Plan, developed through a collaboration between the United States Agency for International Development through its Advancing Philippine Competitiveness Project (USAID-COMPETE), the Department of Tourism (DOT), the United Nations-World Tourism Organization (UN-WTO), and the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA), as well as tourism stakeholders.
And what better way to travel to Bohol than by flying via AirAsia Philippines. Superb service, super friendly staff and, based on experience, they seem to almost always arrive earlier than scheduled.
And hey… they’ve got pretty flight attendants, too! How’s that for incentive, huh? (Wink-wink!)
AirAsia Philippines is the official airline of “Visit Bohol 2015”. As one of Asia’s leading airlines and voted the World’s Best Low Cost Carrier, AirAsia has committed to offer year-round low fares and excellent service.
AirAsia will also carry the “Visit Bohol 2015” theme in the airline’s marketing and promotional campaign here and across AirAsia’s network of over 88 destinations. Special low fares, meanwhile, will also be extended during travel fairs attended and supported by the province.
