Be sure to visit the spa and enjoy a treatment using local island herbs.
Featuring broad wood decks and hammocks, casitas can be set on the beach or within the forest canopy. Set directly on the beach’s ivory sands, with the shore just a few steps away, they offer 68 square metre (731 square foot) of secluded space, inspired by the traditional Filipino hut and designed to celebrate the wonders of the tropics. Villas incorporate private pools and are staffed by a private butler and chef.
Menus at Amanpulo highlight freshly caught seafood such as grouper, crab, and lobster along with island-grown vegetables and herbs. Stop for a cocktail on a bamboo platform raft that floats in the waters of Pamalican Island or enjoy a private beach barbecue.
The hillside Spa has far-reaching views of the blue waters surrounding Amanpulo, while connected pavilions display seashell-covered ceilings. The Hilot Massage is a treatment derived from the Philippines healing arts and uses banana leaves and cold-pressed coconut oil.
With more than four square miles of pristine reef a short distance from the beach, Amanpulo is ideal for scuba and snorkel enthusiasts. Try windsurfing or sailing to take advantage of the island’s year-round gentle breezes.
