Top Luxury Resorts In The Philippines For Your Next Holiday Plans
Nowadays, the number of people who travel and want to travel have grown exponentially because of social media. When someone posts about a specific place on his/her Facebook or Instagram account, people will immediately flock in and the place then gets too crowded. Sometimes, or most of the time, this can be quite disappointing especially when all you wanted was to have a nice and peaceful vacation. If you have long been waiting for that perfect time to getaway from your 9-5 office work, I suggest you invest in a luxurious vacation instead of limiting yourself to a budget. It’s not everyday that you get to have a vacation and like what they say, “You can always make money but you can’t always make memories.”

The hilippines is blessed with more than 7,000 islands that we can explore and enjoy. A lot of things can be done here in the Philippines but one thing that our country is most proud of is its beautiful beaches. Local and foreign tourists flock in which I mentioned can be quite disappointing. And since I have suggested to give yourself and/or your loved ones a luxurious treat every once in a while, I have rounded up a quick list of top luxury resorts in the Philippines that you can choose for your next holiday plans.

Abaca Resort Mactan

Abaca is one of the most exclusive boutique resorts that is situated in my hometown, Mactan Island. With only nine rooms, Abaca Resort is the perfect tropical hideaway that can offer you a complete private experience. Their rooms are spacious and fully equipped with everything you need. Rates are high but I’m pretty sure you’ll get your money’s worth at Abaca Resort Mactan.

Apulit Island Resort

Apulit Island Resort is a 4-star property located in Taytay in the Northern side of Palawan. It is set within an unspoiled location which showcases abundance in wildlife, white sand beaches, and breathtaking landscapes. Being one of the luxurious all-inclusive resorts in El Nido, what makes Apulit Island Resort much more exciting is it’s also an eco-adventure resort. They offer unique and adventure-filled experiences like diving and discovering sunken treasures, climbing and rappelling down a 60-meter limestone cliff, and a lot more.

Pangulasian Island Resort

Pangulasian Island Resort is also one of the luxurious El Nido resorts which is located in Bacuit Bay, El Nido. It is known as the “Island of the Sun” because it gives you breathtaking views of both the sunrise and the sunset. Amazing, right? Not only that. If Apulit Island Resort is the eco-adventure resort, then Pangulasian Island Resort is the eco-luxury resort because of its pristine beaches and rich tropical forests. Guests are provided luxurious amenities and treated with impeccable personalized services to ensure every minute of your vacation is worthwhile.

Shangri-La Mactan

Shangri-La Mactan is one of the most coveted, highest rated, and most expensive resorts in island of Mactan.

Atmosphere Resorts & Spa

Last on my list is Atmosphere Resorts & Spa. This luxury boutique resort is located on the island of Negros Oriental, specifically in the municipality of Dauin. The resort is just less than an hour away from Dumaguete. The entire resort is situated in a seven-acre coconut plantation with a spectacular beach front, lots of greens (yes!), and first-class amenities and services to give you the best and most serene holiday vacation you’ll ever ask for.

Booking and staying on these resorts are expensive, yes, but like what I said, it’s the memories that you make that matters. But if given the chance to save some pennies, you just have to grab it, right? So there’s this travel agency that I recently discovered – Philippines Travel Package – that can assist you in booking these resorts with prices much lesser than booking directly to the resort. They offer all-inclusive deals for 2018 that are carefully handpicked and reviewed by their team of experts.

They only recommend very specific luxury resorts and hotels but they make sure to give you the best deals to the highest standard possible. They have pre-made packages designed to meet your specific needs and can also include flights, hotels, island transfers, and even unique private tours. But take note, they may have pre-made packages but you can always contact them for special requests if you want to customize your trip. Awesome, right? Check them out now and guaranteed, your next holiday vacation will be unforgettable.

  2. Hi, Janine Ella! I wonder why Amanpulo isn't included in the list. Well I guess, it's not affiliated with the travel agency you mentioned. Anyway, this is a very informative and helpful article! :)

  3. Hi, Bianca! Thanks for the input. I didn't include it since I wanted to feature other resorts that I haven't featured on my Top Honeymoon Destinations article. Amanpulo is included there. Here's the link: https://www.wanderingella.com/2017/10/top-5-romantic-honeymoon-destinations.html

    Anyway, thank you again!!! :)
