Island Paradise - Amanpulo, Philippines

Posted by Peter Brady on Wed 30th August 2006 at 07:00 PM, Filed in Adventure HolidaysAlternative DestinationsDesert Islands

Amanpulo is quite simply an idyllic and secluded private resort.


Situated on the island of Pamalican, 200 km east of Palawan in the Philippines, the 220 acre isle is surrounded by white sand, crystal clear sea and well preserved coral reefs (50-300 m. offshore).  Guests arrive from Manila by chartered plane which lands directly on Pamalican.

Expect to see whales, dolphins and a whole range of beautiful sea creatures.

With perfect beaches and deep blue ocean Amanpulo is the perfect place to enjoy watersports, guided eco-walks, cycling, tennis and picnicing.

The island’s weather conditions are tropical, with a dry season from sound November to May and some rain from June to October. The average annual temperature is 27.2oC (81oF). January is the coldest month, with an average temperature of 25.5oC (78oF) and May the hottest at 29oC (84oF).   

The island comprises a number of luxury cottages or “Casitas” situated either on the beach front or in the slightly cooler hills. All of which are simply stunning.

I genuinely can’t recommend this place highly enough.

We have stayed at the Amanpulo but we have not stayed at the Trisara (although we may be popping up in two - three weeks). The Amanpulo was neither showing it’s age nor did we have any trouble with food or service when we where there although it was prior to the switch in managers. The previous managers are now at the Amanpuri. We found the Amanpulo to be completely wonderful and enjoyed every minute of our stay. We have stayed at several Aman properties and we actually prefer the Amanpulo to the Amanpuri simply for the superior (IMO) beach and water sports. However, if it is important to you, the Amanpulo does not have a spa.
