|Amanpulo is set on its own private island, Pamalican, part of the Quiniluban group of Cuyo Island in the Philippines.
Guests arrive from Manila by chartered plane which lands directly on Pamalican. Surrounded by white sand beaches, turquoise water and a coral reef three hundred metres from the shore, the resort provides a variety of watersports and beach activities.
More than just a beach resort, Amanpulo (peaceful island) is set on a coralline island all its own. Pamalican floats in the brilliant-blue waters of the Sulu Sea. Seven square kilometers of reef rim the island. Beyond are sandbanks and a channel, where whales, dolphins and sea cows have been known to stray. At its widest point, the 5.5-kilometer island of Pamalican is only 500 meters across. Located among the Quiniluban group of the Cuyo Islands, Pamalican is one of nearly 1,800 islands in the province of Palawan. The largest province in the Philippines, Palawan is about 600 kilometers south and southwest of Manila.
Amanpulo’s 29 Beach Casitas come with a private path that leads through a tangle of bush directly onto a white-sand beach. The four Treetop Casitas climb with the palm trees high above the island, while the five Hillside Casitas offer unimpeded sea views. The resort's two Deluxe Hillside Casitas feature spectacular prospects of the Sulu sea and the neighbouring islands. Each casita comes with a gasoline-powered golf cart for exploring the island.
Amanpulo also has its own private villas for rent. The Nature Villa (Casa Kalikasan ) is a spacious 4,140 meter villa that can accommodate up to eight guests. It features four free-standing bedrooms, a separate living room, kitchen, and open-air dining pavilion, all set around a garden courtyard. There are two golf carts available for the exclusive use of villa guests and three permanently assigned villa attendants.
The West Villa (Casa Kanluran) lies within a 5.6 hectare complex, stretching from the hillside down to the sea. It features three private casitas (identical to the resort casitas), a main villa designed for up to 10 children and nannies (with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a living room), a kitchen and private beach club. There are four golf carts available for the exclusive use of villa guests, and three permanently assigned villa attendants.
Villa guests enjoy the use of all resort facilities and services.
