Ultimate Relaxation at Panglao Island Nature Resort and Spa

The moment I saw the pictures in the net, I knew I will not leave Bohol without having a day tour in Panglao Island Nature Resort and Spa (PINR).  PINR is another luxurious resort in Panglao, Bohol, with accommodation rates starting from 7,000 Php.

To accommodate visitors who want to experience PINR on a cheaper budget, they came up with a day tour costing 550.00 Php each.  PINR day tour includes 400 Php consumable ala carte foods in their restaurant, a  guided tour with their very own Cambagat Cave, free use of their infinity pool, shower room, the beach area, and others.

We first opted to be guided to Cambagat Cave.  It is a 5 minute-walk from the reception area.   The cave has a 10-ft deep lagoon inside and the resort management built an improvised bridge.  It smells musty because the cave is home to tens or even hundreds of bats.

We then frolicked in the beach and maximized the use of their infinity pool.  Their beach contains talcum-like sand and clear waters.  They have a man-made island off the coast.  Water level is knee-deep making it safe for the kids.

Come night time, we ordered foods, showered while they’re preparing our dinner and ate at the restaurant.  There is an additional 10% service charge if you opted to eat in the restaurant or beside the pool and 15% service charge if the foods will be eaten beside the beach.  The service charge may be paid using the consumable 400 Php of the day tour fee.

The dinner was nice, the foods were good and the ambiance was relaxing.  The 550 Php was worth it given the food they served, the amenities they have and the services they offered.  They even have singing waiters that serenades every table.

Personally, the only setback of the place is the presence of mosquitoes in the pool area and the balcony of the restaurant.

  1. You have the best bohol itinerary sis! Pretty much what i want in a bohol trip, kulang na lang yong fireflies! Makes me long for a bohol trip hopefully with friends!!😀
    Yong trip nyu sa PINR kasama na ba sa van rental? Hinintay nya kayo at hangang sa dumaluan beach hinatid?

    1. why, thank you layla! It took me a month to prepare that Itinerary because I really wanted to maximize my Bohol trip.

      uo, hinintay nya kami hanggang matapos kami, then diretso sa dumaluan resort. The next morning, sinundo nya ulit kami. Sabihan mo lang sila kung saan mo gusto pumunta.🙂

  2. hi. this is very helpful. i would like to ask if habal habal ang gagamitin for tours how much would it cost? dalawa lang kasi kaming magtravel. if van naman, masyadong mahal at maluwang.
    ung 1500 sa boat for island hopping good for 2 din ba or my mas cheaper? thank you.

    1. Hi, Jade,
      I dont know the rate for habal2 e. For boat naman, 1500 is as of 2012 and I think that’s private na…if you want na makamura, hanap ka din ng other travelers to share the boat with you.🙂
