HENANN Bohol: Best Bohol Experience in Panglao's Largest Luxury Resort @HenannBohol!





Henann Resort Bohol
Henann Resort Bohol is the biggest luxury resort in Panglao island, with a 6.5-hectare property sitting on the shores of Bohol's famous Alona Beach.

Henann is named after its founder Dr. Henry Chusuey and his wife Ann (hence the name Hen-Ann), who acquired the former Alona Palms Beach Resort and surrounding areas.

 

We love the resort because of its family-friendly vibe, multiple pools, white sand beachfront along Alona beach, and sumptuous dinner buffet.

How to Get There (Manila-Tagbilaran)

SUP Tours Philippines-3.jpg

By plane, we arrived from Manila to Tagbilaran (Bohol) in one hour and 25 minutes. A one-way ticket from Manila to Tagbilaran is usually around Php 3,000.

Travel tip: We booked our flights with Skiddoo, which offered us a cheap and easy way to book our flights online. That's right. The fastest growing online travel agency out of Australia is now in the Philippines! It’s the cheapest place for you to compare and book airfare.

If you find cheaper flights on another website, Skiddoo is ready to match that price. Just take a screenshot of the cheaper flight’s price, call+632 770-5380 and email the picture to contactus@skiddoo.com.ph so Skiddoo can verify it. Where else can you find travel agents online who would lower their price for you? For more info, just visit their website at https://www.skiddoo.com.ph/

 

 ALONA BEACH

Henann Resort Bohol 

Henann Resort has the longest beachfront along the famed Alona Beach (120 meters wide), named after sexy star Alona Alegre who did a nude shoot on this beach.

 

Henan Resort Bohol
The beach is secured for check-in guests and good people only and the water in front of the resort is cleared of parked boats.

 

 Henann Resort Bohol

Alona beach is known as "Little Boracay" because of its nightlife and powder white sands. The comparison ends there because there are a lot of seaweed and parked boats. 

 

THE HENANN POOLS

Henann Resort Bohol
The pools are the main attraction at Henann Bohol. They have the most number of pools on the island with three major ones, each having their own bar.

 

Henann Resort Bohol
The favorite is the pool facing the sea. The standard depth for most of their pools is 4ft.

 

Henann Resort Bohol
The one in the middle has a 10ft deep pool, which was once used for practicing scuba diving.

 

Henann Resort Bohol
The pool near the suites is surrounded by the main building, with jacuzzis in the middle that are just 1ft deep, perfect for toddlers to take a dip.

 

BREAKFAST AT HENANN

Henann Breakfast-1.jpg
You can have complimentary breakfast at either the Coral Café located on the 2nd floor of the main building starting at 6.00 am or...

 

Henann Breakfast-13.jpg
...at the Sea Breeze Cafe, which opens at 7:00am. Both feature Filipino and international selections. This is my personal favorite but make sure to go early.

 

Hen
Bohol's mangoes are extra sweet because Bohol's soil is made up of limestone, which contributes to the acidity ("sourness") or alkalinity ("sweetness") of its fruits.

 

Henann Resort Bohol
The meat options change every day. Our favorite is the tender beef tapa or the glazed pineapple ham.

 

Hen
For something from Bohol, try their hot grilled Panglao Sausage.

 

Henann Breakfast-8.jpg
I like the availability of Chinese noodle station for a light and energizing alternative.

 

Hen
Also check out the dim sum options like this Chinese siopao with chicken or pork filling.

 

Hen
Order their hot chocolate with ensaymada and banana bread.

 

Henann Breakfast-10.jpg 
Start your day right with a heavy breakfast before you go on your tour.

BOHOL TOUR

Henann Resort Bohol
A trip to Bohol isn't complete without having to see the iconic Chocolate Hills, one of the natural wonders of the world, and...

 

Bohol Countryside Tour-7.jpg
...the cute Tarsiers.

 

Hen
Chocolate Hills has over 1,247 hills spread out in Carmen Valley and neighboring towns.

Tip: The Chocolate Hills are brown during summer time, which make them look like Chocolate Kisses.

 

 

Bohol Countryside Tour-12.jpg
The best place to see the Chocolate Hills is at Carmen view point where we had to walk 214 steps to reach the topmost deck. Too bad construction was still ongoing and blocking the view.

Watch out for our complete feature of The Best Bohol Experience.

GRILLED DINNER BUFFET @ HENANN BOHOL

Sea Breeze Cafe-14.jpg

We love the dinner buffet at the Sea Breeze Beach Club featuring Asian, Western, and Filipino cuisine. They have the biggest buffet on the island that caters to guests everyday.

 

Sea Breeze Cafe-3.jpg
You can sit alfresco along the beach with live acoustic entertainment at night.

 

Sea Breeze Cafe-13.jpg
The highlight dish would either feature Chuck-eye beef or...

Sea Breeze Cafe-8.jpg
The Chinese dim sum selection complete with Japanese siomai, beef siomai, spareribs in bean curd, and chicken feet.

Peking Duck and Pork Asado, which were a bit dry.

 

Sea Breeze Cafe-7.jpg
The grilling station is the highlight of the buffet.

 

Sea Breeze Cafe-26.jpg
Definitely order the White Marlin--perfectly grilled fish with a buttery taste that slightly melts in your mouth.

  

Sea Breeze Cafe-19.jpg
Enjoy the abundant steamed crabs and shrimp.

 

Sea Breeze Cafe-24.jpg
Feast on grilled liempo and chicken.

 

Sea Breeze Cafe-23.jpg
The kids loved the pasta station where you can specify your preferred pasta, sauce, and toppings.

 

Sea Breeze Cafe-17.jpg
Dessert selection with different types of cake, desserts, and a fruit bar with mangoes. I like the Pinoy dessert selection with ube pudding and... 

 

Sea Breeze Cafe-16.jpg
...DIY halo-halo.

 

Sea Breeze Cafe-1.jpg
Sea Breeze Cafe. Our favorites are the grilled shrimps, white marlin, salmon sinigang, beef tenderloin, chuck-eye beef, and the pasta station. 

The lunch buffet has fewer choices, so I suggest you opt for the dinner one instead. The prices are quite affordable.

Buffet Lunch: P585.60 net/person; P292.80 net/person (kids)
Buffet Dinner: P854.00 net/person; P427.00 net/person (kids)

NIGHT LIFE @ ALONA BEACH

Henann Resort Bohol
Alona Beach is known for its night scene, strips of restaurants with candle-lit tables on the sand, live acoustic music, and clubs for partying the night away. 

 

 

Henann Resort Bohol
The rows of restaurants and establishments by the beach is reminiscent of Boracay, but is a lot smaller and quieter. 

 

Henan Resort Bohol
Sometimes, it's just more fun to hang out in the pool bar at night with your family and friends. 

 

Henann Breakfast-7-2.jpg
Overall, we loved our stay at Henann Resort Bohol because of:

- The convenient white sand beachfront location along Alona Beach
- The amazing Henann Pools!
- Villas with your own private pool
- It's near different good restaurants along Alona Beach
- Good value grilled dinner buffet at Sea Breeze Restaurant
- Happy Hour and walking access to Bohol's nightlife scene
- Family-friendly but at the same time the parents can opt to party at night

What we didn't like during our stay:
- It can get noisy and busy along Alona Beach
- Seaweed by the shore and a bit rocky in the waters
- Ugly sight of the boats parked near the beach
