Amanpulo Resort

Pamalican Island is the home of the Amanpulo Resort, one of the world's most secluded luxury resorts for unwinding and rejuvenating. Amanpulo means "peaceful island" and that it is.


The entire island is privately owned and is for the exclusive use of the fewer than 100 Amanpulo Resort guests. Amanpulo has several dozen posh casitas (cottages) plus some equally stylish hillside, treetop and villa accommodations.

Small island

I walked leisurely around Pamalican Island on the beach in under 2 hours.

Getting there

This luxury retreat lies southwest of Manila. It is slightly over one hour away by scheduled 19-passenger charter air service. This is the only means of transportation in and out for guests, which adds to the isolation appeal.
