Destination: The Bellevue Resort Bohol

Perhaps one of my favorite hotel chains in the Philippines is the Bellevue chain. I've had several opportunities to stay in their hotels either as an invited guest or on my own accord with friends or family, and I've always felt completely rested and rejuvenated every single time.

From their well-appointed rooms to top-notch facilities, you know you're getting five-star accommodations and a lot of value for money.
One thing that sets my every BELLEVUE experience apart from the others, is the warmth and hospitality from the moment you step into the hotel and all through out your stay. I love the simple little things that make you feel special like a bag of treats waiting for you when you enter your room. (The ensaymada from the Bellevue Hotel Pastry Corner is TDF!) The staff are always eager to assist you or just to let you know they are happy that you came to visit.

And the food --oh, the food! Where do I begin? The food at Bellevue hotels is in a word: YUMMAZING! The food selection is well-curated and always so tasty and flavorful. The servings are just right, you definitely get high value for money.

Given all these plus a long stretch of fine white sand along the famed Panglao beach, and you can pretty much say that Bellevue Hotel and Resort in Bohol is by itself a tourist destination.
And that's why on my last visit to this beautiful island province down south, I decided not to venture out on our third day at the hotel and just spend one full day just enjoying the beach and lounging around the pool and savoring the blissful rest I got from the soft and fluffy king-sized bed that came with my suite.

And like I said earlier, a stay at any BELLEVUE HOTEL would not be complete without trying out their gastronomic delights.

At the Bellevue Bohol, a breakfast buffet is laid out daily at the LAMIAN WORLD CUISINE with pretty much every imaginable breakfast fare one would fancy. They have a wide selection of fresh-from-the-oven breads and pastries, crispy bacon and sausages, cereals, and local favorites like tapa, longganisa, and daing. It's the place to be early mornings to jumpstart your day.

After a day out in the beach or touring around the beautiful island, you'd surely work up an appetite. Thankfully, you needn't venture out of the hotel. MAREA AL FRESCO restaurant serves a delectable array of local and international cuisine to satiate every craving. My personal favorite? I seriously love, love, love their pork sisig, which we had every single night for our entire four-day stay at the hotel along with a variety of other scrumptious dishes like pork humba, balbakuan, and fresh seafood delicacies.

I also loved spending afternoons at the FLUJO BAR just ordering a cocktail or two, or just grabbing a refreshing fruit shake. I think I must have ordered about a hundred and one of their watermelon shake - my fave! The barista also whipped me up a delicious glass of iced coffee which I thoroughly enjoyed!

We also stayed at the BELLEVUE RESORT's one-bedroom suite which had the most amazing view of their beachfront! Four days in paradise is definitely an understatement.

We had initially planned to spend half of my last full day in Bohol just enjoying BELLEVUE and the other half going island hopping. But we had so much fun just hanging by the pool and the beachfront that time just flew right by and the sun was setting before we knew it. No regrets though! We had the best time at the Bellevue.

If I'm not by the pool or at the beachfront, I love to just relax in my suite taking a nap, curled up with my favorite book, or enjoying the magnificent view of the beach right from my balcony at my amazing suite!

I truly had the best time during my last visit in Bohol, and I must say the hotel takes much of the credit for this. If I do get a chance to visit Bohol for a third time, I know I'd still choose to stay at the BELLEVUE RESORT, that's for sure!
