Set on its own private island in the Quiniluban group of Cuyo Islands in the Philippines, Amanpulo (‘peaceful island') is surrounded by white sand beaches, crystal clear turquoise waters and a coral reef 300 metres off shore. Amanpulo hosts a variety of beach and water based activities such as windsurfing, snorkelling, scuba diving, cruises and deep-sea game fishing. Amanpulo's guests are first met at Ninoy Aquino International Airport in Manila and travel by private plane to Pamalican Island, landing on the island's own airstrip.

Forty Philippine-style casitas enjoy a variety of locations - amongst the treetops, on the beach or on the hillside overlooking the vast Sulu Sea. Each casita features a bedroom with a king-size bed, two window divans and a wooden sundeck with outdoor loungers. The spacious bathrooms have a large dressing area, shower and raised bathtub decorated with Cebu marble. Surrounded by the pristine waters of the Sulu Sea and seven square kilometres of reef, Amanpulo is a paradise for divers. With a 30 metre swimming pool, two synthetic-grass, flood-lit tennis courts and an 850 X 90mm astronomical refractor telescope for stargazing, Amanpulo offers a wide range of relaxing guest activities including picnic lunches, nature walks, and massage and beauty services.

Our Opinion

One of the most luxurious hideaways in the Philippines. Truly the sort of desert island that dreams are made of.
