NO IT IS NOT related to Amorita, the first hotel we stayed in during our Bohol vacation. Yes it is another beee-a-u-tiful resort-hotel.
I will have to tip the hat to my xxGF for finding great resort-hotels. The credits are all hers. Not only are our resort-hotels in Bohol beautiful. Their names even rhyme! Beat that.
If Amorita has a great infinity pool with a perfect hilltop view of the dreamy and famous Alona Beach of Panglao Island, Amarella offers an idyllic atmosphere with its rustic and colorful indoor and outdoor ambiance.
The whole place is inspired by artworks and old-world amenities. The furnitures and fixtures inside the rooms were made to look and feel like antiques. The bed cover is crocheted. Inside the bedroom there’s a cute little bath tub, a wood-paneled wall, and windowsill also made of wood.
Each room has a veranda, too. Ours was overlooking a manicured garden with colorful tropical bouganvilla and gumamela flowers, the swimming pool, and the sea a little further down.
Amarella has its own little art museum, where the owner’s personal collections are apparently kept – and shared to interested guests. There’s also a library with an interesting collection of both old and new books, as well as old and new DVDs.
There are artworks everywhere. Inside the rooms, in the walls along the corridors, in the lobby, in the gardens… The whole place may as well have been a big art gallery.
At night the breeze from the sea is so loud and calming at the same time.
Amarella also offers an access to the sea. Its beach front is quite good. The beach is shallow, flat and safe for kids. It offers little beneath the surface, however.
