The Bellevue Resort is a luxurious 5-star resort situated on the peaceful shorelines of Doljo Beach, Panglao Island, Bohol. It’s perfect for families both looking for quiet leisure time and fun-filled activities on their Bohol vacation.
Our family escaped to Bellevue Resort during the Labor Day weekend, and here are the 10 things we love about our experience…
One of the must-do activities in Bohol is watching the dolphins swim in their natural habitat near Pamilacan Island.
It’s recommended to get the Bohol Island hopping tour from the resort you’re staying at, but you can also book a boat elsewhere depending on how big your group is. We prefer the island hopping speed boats used by Bellevue Resort, which are ideal for getting close to the dolphin action and are much faster than the bancas.
Here is a photo essay of our dolphin watching and island hopping experience…
POP CAFE is the first Liquid Nitrogen-charged Popcorn Cafe in the Philippines by Kettle Korn–originally created by RFM’s Joey Concepcion–and is the latest craze in enjoying this popular snack.
This is the first time I’ve seen liquid nitrogen used in popcorn. The nitrogen not only provides a cooling effect but also gives a smoky fun factor that even kids can enjoy. The popcorn kernels are made from whole grains and popped fresh in-store too, making for a healthy treat.
We recently tried all the flavors and offerings of Pop Cafe. Here’s what to expect and what we recommend…
Vigan is the third oldest city in the Philippines following Cebu and Manila. It is famed for the Philippines' most beautiful street Calle Crisologo, that brings back history which rivals Intramuros. The streets are cover with cobblestone lined with old Spanish houses from either side.
Calle Crisologo is the only World Heritage City in the Philippines inscribed by UNESCO. Because it perfectly preserves the livelihood of the Hispanic colonial era.
The Ilocos Region, consisting of Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur, may sound like a daunting place for first-time visitors.
Often, our friends and relatives ask for a dozen Vigan Longanisa, a bottle of Sukang Iloko, a bundle of Native Garlic, or a packet of Bagnet in hopes of also experiencing your travels through your souvenirs.
However, we all know there is a lot more to this beautiful region than what we can find in your typical Pasalubong bag.
Here’s what every traveler in Ilocos should experience before returning home…
Stand Up Paddling (SUP) is the latest eco-adventure in the Philippines. And if you ever find yourself down south in Bohol, don’t miss the chance to paddle for 8kms across the Loboc River, one of the biggest rivers on the island.
Here, you’ll get to experience local Boholano culture and natural sceneries from a unique vantage point–by gliding on water! You can even watch magical fireflies at night on a SUP board.
SUP Tours Philippines is the first ASI SUP School in the Philippines. ASI meaning Academy of Surfing Instructors , an international body that offers the highest level of certification for “supping” instructors.
SUP is for everybody, that’s why it’s currently the fastest growing water sport in the world. It’s quite popular because the learning curve is so easy and people of all ages and skill can quickly master it. It also provides a low impact full body workout and an eco-friendly way to experience the outdoors.
