Introducing the Philippines’ most luxurious resort: The heavenly Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa
Eskaya Beach Resort and Spa is a heavenly and relaxing retreat situated on the beautiful and idyllic island of Panglao, at the southernmost tip of Bohol in the Philippines. As a member of Small Luxury Hotel of the World, it is an exclusive boutique hotel that prides itself on thoughtful service and personalised experiences for guests.
Sprawling across 39 acres, Eskaya Beach Resort and Spa combines a friendly community feel with a sense of relaxation and intimacy. The staff are incredibly attentive yet unobtrusive; guests needs are of the utmost importance. Named after the indigenous people of Bohol, the resort offers warm Filipino hospitality with a touch of modern luxury.
The hotel is situated in a paradisal location only an hour’s flight from Manila, with direct access to pristine stretches of unspoilt white-powder sand beaches, beautiful crystal-clear ocean and lush vegetation. The area is renowned for its thriving flora, comprised of Bougainvillea and Bird of Paradise amongst an abundance of other native blossoms. Guests may also spot a native tarsier, one of the world’s smallest primates, nestled amongst the greenery.
The resort now comprises 24 thatched-bamboo villas, individually-designed in contemporary Filipino style. In June 2017, the five-star resort opened five fabulous Grand Villas and one new Family Villa with its own loft and butler service, taking the total number of villas to eight. The refined and unpretentious design of each villa enhances the charm of the resort, featuring a neutral palette of cream and natural wooden furnishings.
Each spacious villa contains a comfortable king-sized bed with luxurious linen, generous indoor and outdoor living areas, outdoor bathrooms and modern amenities varying from flat-screen TV’s to mini-bar facilities. Villas also come with private swimming pools which blend seamlessly into the surrounding azure sea.
The blissful and secluded Handuraw Spa offers traditional Filipino and Asian treatments, using centuries-old healing and pampering techniques to promote wellness. From rejuvenating full body massages to deep-cleansing facials, it’s the perfect way to unwind.
There are an excellent array of dining options at Eskaya Beach Resort and Spa. Executive chef Rexon Pacao showcases the best fresh, Filipino cuisine for guests to feast on in the signature Lantawan Restaurant which overlooks the mesmerising infinity pool. Guests may enjoy local delicacies such as humba or delicious international cuisine. Alternatively, guests may dine alfresco by the pool or private beachfront, or enjoy a barbecue and bonfire beneath the stars for a truly unforgettable moment.
During their stay, guests can immerse themselves in the natural playground surrounding the resort. Guests may choose to explore Bohol’s natural wonders such as the famous Chocolate Hills, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, or go scuba-diving amongst the wildlife off Balicasag Island which is renowned for its rich coral reefs. Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa can arrange these activities.
Guests seeking a relaxed experience can embark on a sunset cruise and watch the sun set across Panglao Bay whilst enjoying canapés and sipping cocktails.
