Standard rooms located on the ground floor.
Further to the right  of this structure is a view of the sea.
Going further to the left side of this structure is the reception.

You can request luggage to be stored here in case you're leaving the place several hours after checkout time

This is our deluxe room located beside the reception.
The reception is at the right side of the photo.
One advantage of getting the room beside the reception is that you have strong wifi. The wifi router is apparently located in the reception.

The room above the Isis Thai Restaurant is Bungalow 8.

It's the best room for a big family.

Next time we go to Bohol, we will reserve Bungalow 8 far in advance.

As you can can see, Bungalow 8 also has the view of the sea from it's window.

Hennan Resort Alona Beach Opens in Bohol!!

March 7, 2011

Great News!!!
Hennan Resort Alona Beach 
(formerly Alona Palm Beach Resort) 
Opens in Bohol!!

For those of you who were fans of Alona Palm Beach Resort and were sad to see it close, here is some great news. I'd like to share with you the official announcement of Henna Resort Alona Beach (highlights are mine):

" Experience the pristine beauty of Bohol like never before as Hennan Resort Alona Beach formally opens its doors to guests beginning March 15, 2011. Located along the immaculate shores of Panglao Island, the luxury resort has 12 exclusive villas amidst lush tropical gardens with refreshing views of the sea, palm groves and infinity edge pool.
Formerly Alona Palm Beach Resort, Henann Resort Alona Beach is the newest acquisition of Boracay Regency Group of Resorts also known as Henann Resorts, owner and operator of Boracay Regency, Boracay Garden Resort and Regency Lagoon.
“We are very excited and pleased to announce the re-opening of this well-loved resort. Our ideal location, spacious rooms, sumptuous food, and efficient staff make Henann Resort Alona Beach your dream destination in Bohol,” said Henry O. Chusuey, Chairman of Henann Hotel Management, Inc. 
Chusuey chanced upon the property during one of his ocular visits in Panglao in November last year. He was captured by its natural beauty and saw its potential to be the next big tourist destination in the country. This led him to quickly strike a deal with the former Swiss owner.
Henann Resort Alona Beach is situated on a slightly elevated area along the powdery white stretch of Alona Beach . Offering the utmost privacy to guests, the villas are separated by 70-meter wide coconut palm groves from the white beach. The resort has the widest beach front along Alona Beach and also features a 450-meter fresh water swimming pool with bar.
Each villa has a split-type air conditioner and ceiling fan, terrace with sun beds, LCD TV with cable, telephone with IDD and NDD, WIFI access, personal safety box, and mini bar. 
Henann Resorts also brings to Bohol one of its famous restaurant chains now operating in Boracay -- Christina’s, which offers international cuisine specially prepared by experienced chefs. 
With only 12 villas currently available, the sprawling 6.5 hectare-property is the future site of a 350-room paradise resort that will offer full service convention facilities, lagoon shaped pools, luxury spa, international restaurants, fitness center, and a chapel for intimate weddings.         
“Over the next two years, we plan to develop a world-class resort to answer the demand of our foreign and local clients,” added Chusuey.
The province of Bohol is centrally located in the Visayas region and is only an hour away by plane from Manila . Land transfers from provincial capital Tagbilaran City to Henann Resort Alona Beach takes less than 30 minutes.
Aside from the Chocolate Hills and the Philippine Tarsier, Bohol is also famous for landmarks and attractions such as the Dauis Church , Blood Compact Shrine, Magsaysay Camp, and Loboc River . Popular tourist activities include bird spotting in Rajah Sikatuna National Park , diving in Panglao Island and whale and dolphin watching in Bohol Sea , among others.

Isis Bungalows: Budget-friendly Bohol Accomodations for a Family of Six

June 14, 2010

Isis Bungalows: Budget-friendly Bohol Accommodations for a Family of Six

What kids will like about this place
  • It has free strong wifi 24 hours a day. 
  • It has cable tv in the rooms
  • The beach is a few steps from the room.
  • Although the beachfront is small, the shallow waters stretches around 50 meters from the beachfront.
  • You can snorkel on the beach in front and see small fish and different shapes of starfish.

What I like about this place
The Room:
  •  They have rooms that can accomodate big groups. In our case, I prefer to have a room that can accomodate both my husband and I, and all our four kids so we don't have to worry about them staying in the other room. It's often hard to find rooms that can accomodate us because often, family rooms are only good for 4 people, the couple and their 2 kids. It's more expensive for a family of six to book 3 standard rooms good for 2 people. That's why I prefer to book a family suite, or any room that will allow 6 people to stay in one room.
  • The Isis Bungalow deluxe bungalow can accommodate all six of us. We stayed at deluxe bungalow 4, near the reception. But next time we're going to stay at the family bungalow 8. It's the most spacious, has a very large bathroom, has a terrace and a nice view of the sea. It's on the second floor and on top of Isis Thai Restaurant
  • The size of the room is 30 sq. meters and the deluxe bungalow is shaped like a pentagon. It has enough space to accommodate  1 queen-sized foam bed, a single foam bed, a double sized airbed, and a single airbed. We brought with us the airbeds to save on mattress fee.
  • They have a cabinet with lots of shelves and hangers.
The Bathroom:
  •  Bathroom is large, clean and designed for the comfort and convenience of the guest because of additional shelves.
  • Water in the bathroom is relatively strong, considering that Panglao Island has a water problem.
  • They have hot and cold water.
Other Amenities:
  • Even if you do not rent the mattress, they give free pillows, blankets and towels to the additional persons.
  • They give free toiletries like shampoo in sachet and soap and free instant coffee, sugar and creamer in sachet. They replenish it when you consume it.
  • They have laundry service but we didn't use it so I cannot rate it.
The Service:
  • The staff is very efficient and fast in giving service. Every time I ask for extra towels, pillows or blankets, they were able to immediately give them to me.
  • They clean the room and toilet every day.

The rate of one deluxe bungalow is P4,000 per bungalow per night. The rate is for 3 persons per deluxe bungalow. There is a charge of P350 per night for additional persons in the room in excess of 3 persons. There is a charge of P350 per night for each additional mattress requested.

Amenities included in the rate of a deluxe bungalow:
  • 1 queen-sized bed and 1 single bed 
  • with air-con
  • with cable TV
  • with mini refrigerator
  • private toilet and shower, with hot and cold water 
  • electric hot water thermos with free coffee, sugar and creamer
  • free toiletries: shampoo in sachet and soap
