Henann Resort Panglao, A Beachfront resort we love in Bohol

Henann Resort Panglao Bohol, A beach resort in Bohol that we greatly adored. Totally! And I’ll show you why!

Updated: February 2018 :Henann Resort is the biggest beach resort in Panglao Island, Bohol.

At a glance from the road, the resort looks conventional. Security is tight. Going to the main building is quite a walk. It was my second time in Bohol, and on my first, a solo journey, I chose to stay at Alona Hammocks Hostel

The massive building of Hennan Resort welcomed us as we entered. Pretty ladies were on standby at the reception and the staff were within reach whenever someone needed assistance. The interior was glamorous!

We were served with a welcome drink, too! 

Let’s go to our room

We booked a premier room with an overlooking view of the turquoise water and the inviting beach of Alona. It’s summer in the Philippines in May, and everyone flocks to the beach to beat the heat.

Our room had enough space for everything. The bed was huge and I really loved it! It was so soft it felt as though it were a trampoline! (haha)

Our bathroom his equipped with bathtub, hair dryer and toiletries that were replaced every day.

Every morning since day one, a staff would come by to tidy up our messy room. (haha) Given the fact that it’s a luxury resort, the staff were so well trained that they managed to clean and organize our cluttered room.

Hennan Resort Panglao incredibly amazing

Breakfast at Christina 

Christina’s Western Cuisine prepares delightful luscious foods for every guest’s appetite such as Chris’s favorite veggie breakfast delight: grilled sandwich with eggplant, cucumber, and melted cheese.

At Christina, your food is cooked however you want it.

Traditional Filipino breakfast is also available upon request.

Everything was close to perfect. Breakfast buffet is offered to guests by three restaurants. There’s one on the second floor. Sea Breeze, a restaurant serving non-guests, is by the beach. The third restaurant is Cristina’s Western Cuisine, our favorite.

Cristina’s offers a cozy morning when you want to avoid loud music and noise from other guests. It presents a classic ambiance that’s perfect for couples. In addition, service is first class. Since we were there for days, they already knew our preferences.

Swimming pools and pool bar

Henann Resort has three incredible swimming pools that can accommodate all its guests. After breakfast, you can directly jump into the pool and luxuriate yourself or sunbathe on the beach chair that the resort has arranged for your convenience.

Henann Resort can also be your prefect venue for an ultimate photo shoot. In fact, every single spot is Instagram worthy, so if you’re an Instagram aficionado and a fan of OOTD, you definitely must bring your best outfit—be it a piece of bikini, or your favorite tank top and shorts!

The best thing that we loved about Henann Resort is the happy hour that starts from 5 pm and ends at 7 pm. Yay! How can we resist a bottle of San Mig Light beer, eh? So, cheers?

Good to know about the resort

Henann Resort is a 125 meters beachfront

Unlike other luxury resorts that I’ve stayed at before, Henann Resorts significantly exceeded my expectations of a beach resort accommodation. Of all the beach resorts and luxury accommodations I and we’ve stayed so far Chris and I couldn’t agree more to the certainty that Henann Resort is our top on the list.

On a personal note, 

Despite the fact that the internet was slow (which happens pretty much around the Philippines), we would like to thank Hennan Resort at Alona Beach and the amiable staff especially those of Cristina’s for the excellent service. Henann Resort is absolutely one of our favorite luxury hotels. And we’re surely coming back! ♡

    This definitely looks like a gorgeous hotel! I love how spacious the rooms are, but it’s too bad that the wifi is a bit slow! It does look like an instagrammable spot!

  • Jasmine Chen

    I can’t believe I’ve never heard of Bohol… Needless to say I’ll definitely be booking a vacation there. I mean welcome drinks? Yes please!

  • My Normal Gay Life

    The resort looks just dreamy! It’s perfect for a romantic getaway! I am not the biggest fan of resorts usually…but maybe I haven’t had the right experience!

  • Jennifer @ MatDifference

    It looks like a great place for a romantic getaway. That room looks really nice and comfy. I would spent forever reading a book by the pool and just relaxing all day.

  • Medha Verma

    It’s the kind of resort that would make me not want to go out and explore, just spend the day relaxing in the hotel! I love the pool and pool bars are my favourite! The room is so cosy, the food looks yummy. I don’t think I’d want to stay in such a place, it would make me a lazy bum. HAHA
