Bohol is a province of the Philippines in the Central Visayas region, and Magic Oceans Resort, located in Anda, is on the east coast of this beautiful green island. This area, described as the ‘Jewel of Bohol’, is peaceful and untouched, and the stretches of white sand beaches are just a taster of what is to come. The resort welcomes you with open arms into a beachfront paradise surrounded by a steep rocky wall, jungle, and a tropical fruit nursery. The vista is lush with palm trees, hibiscus, jasmine, and other tropical flowers.
The 16 spacious bungalows offer panoramic views from their large balconies where you can relax and watch the world go by from your furnished seating area. Inside you will find native style furniture which includes a king size bed, closet with safe, desk, fully stocked mini bar and tea and coffee making facilities. The bathrooms have a powerful shower, bath and pool towels, soap, shampoo, and a hairdryer is also provided. All rooms are air-conditioned, have free unlimited mineral water and WiFi, and there is an onsite laundry service.
The resort has a wonderful restaurant and bar, and a swimming pool perfect for both dive training and for those lazy days relaxing. For some extra pampering you can indulge in a treatment or two at the onsite spa where there is a serene Japanese-style garden with air-conditioned massage suites, a hand and foot spa with manicures and pedicures, and a yoga terrace where the experienced yoga instructor offers weekly classes and practice sessions.
Magic Ocean Resort has a stunning house reef with easy access from the dive centre, perfect for both divers and snorkelers alike, and although the area is famous for its 15km of dive sites along the coast, it has plenty more to offer. The first on your list should be a sightseeing tour that takes in the iconic Chocolate Hills. Climb 200 steps for panoramic views of this extraordinary landscape of over 1200 conical hills spread over 50km². If you want to see the famous inhabitants of Bohol then visit the Philippine Tarsier and Wildlife Sanctuary, the place that is responsible for the protection of these fascinating and endangered species. For some family fun explore Turtle Reef where you can snorkel with turtles, and for adrenaline junkies the tree top zip line and cable car at Loboc Ecotourism Adventure Park should be just the ticket. For a beautiful end to the day go Firefly Watching at Can-Umantad Waterfalls, enjoy dinner aboard a floating restaurant and as darkness sets in watch the fireflies’ glow.
