My wife and I decided to push through with our visit to Amarela for our honeymoon despite the pandemic, and it was one of the best decisions we made! Though the place is not within the central thoroughfare of Bohol, it is not super far as well, which I think is its main driving point-- far from all the partying and merriment so you can relax and unwind. The entire place is littered with greenery and vibrant flowers. There is sufficient spaces for you to walk around and ponder with nature. The walkway towards the beach is inviting making you feel like you just have to go by the beachside. There is even a hammock area! I found myself taking a nap there one afternoon and it was one of the best naps I've had. Amarela is an excellent space to just take a step back and relax. The rooms are also really nice. The hardwood structure makes the place more inviting and bring a zen-type vibe to it. The staff were also super accommodating. They assisted and helped us with our planning via email-- they're easy to talk to! They also informed us what documents we needed, as well as, application we'll need in order to get around Bohol which made things more convenient for us. They would also check up on us if we're doing okay and if there was anything we needed. They also assisted us in our transportation and tours needs making everything extra convenient. Food is another story. Not only was it good, they serve a generous amount of it. Their service during meal times are excellent. We would find ourselves always wanting to sleep right after because we were just so full. It was a gastronomic experience. Also, they would immediately tend to our needs whenever we needed something. They would even serve food by the poolside which made things more convenient for us, so that we can enjoy the amenities. Overall, I would love to go back to Amarela! They made our stay super fun, yet relaxing. It was a definite place to take a step back from everything and just enjoy breathing and being one with nature.

We stayed here for 3 nights. It was very good experience. Buffet breakfast was my favorite, they have several choices. I like the welcome drink too. We will visit this place again in 2021🙏 During our stay, through true hotel, we booked a full body massage for two, it was another very good experience. Then we decided to visit the bee farm, the hotel contacted a tricycle to bring us to the place and took us back to the resort. I like this resort because is not too big, so therefore it’s not crowded. Also, the free shuttle pick up from Tagbilaran Bohol and return to the airport , was included to our room rate.

The staff arranged free pick up and drop off at the airport. The resort is about a 10 minute walk from the main road but not that much around. The staff can arrange a tricycle to take you to Alona. The rooms were clean. The grounds are beautiful and the beach lovely though depending on the tide not much water to dive into. They have an extensive video and book library which came in handy for the rainy day we had there. The front desk was very helpful in arranging tours.

Considering the Island’s mediocre level, it’s not bad. Stuff quite helpful, breakfasts pretty good... some setbacks would be the slow restaurant service and the existance of only Philippino plugs in the rooms

Stayed here 3 nights as part of our honeymoon trip. It’s surrounded with tropical greenery and even have their own herb garden. The walk via the pool and down to the private beach is beautiful. Hammocks, outside massage areas and beach swings all make for this perfect idyllic setting on the white sand beach. The staff are the most helpful and friendly and helped us in every way to make our stay perfect. We are at the restaurant all x3 nights. The fish is fresh and the menu is extensive without compromising on taste or quality. I loved my stay here. It reminded me of a health retreat without the inflated prices. Thank you everyone at Amarela x
