About 15 - 20 minutes from the port of Tagbilaran City, in Bohol Island, Sherwood Bay is the place where you'll find the peaceful and relaxing quiet. But it doesn’t mean that there’s no adventure. I think this is the one place where you can enjoy both adventure and the peaceful quiet.
The adventure begins as we were approaching the place through an unpaved road - typical of countryside Philippines. The locals said that the government is planning to pave the road. But I don’t think it’s terrible, in fact I’d also say that keeping it unpaved is more exciting (but that’s just me).
As we arrived at the hotel, I could already feel the privacy of the place from the gate to the drop-off area. At first, I thought the place was somewhat internally oriented. But as we moved closer, I could see the scenic view of the sea and the island of Cebu farther back.
Sherwood Bay has a strategically located large green outdoor space suitable for wedding receptions, debut/birthday parties, family reunion/parties, and other social gatherings. You may also do your calisthenics exercises there. The place has two swimming pools. The one which has a portion intended for scuba diving lessons is located near the cozy restaurant. Sherwood Bay has a highly competent diving instructor and crew to guide you through in the exciting adventure in the ocean. They also served a variety of delicious food. For those who want to enjoy the quiet, and relax with the gentle sea breeze, the place is wide enough to accommodate them. Or you may stay in the comfort of your hotel units.
I have visited the place three times. I learned that this hotel is new. The rooms are large! Well furnished. The bathrooms are proportionally large as well. With hot and cold water, the bathtub is just as relaxing. My friends liked the Jacuzzi. I liked the bathtub.
I’d say this is the best place to share your time with someone important as well as to experience the adventure in the deep ocean.
I had the best holiday at Sherwood Bay!
