Put your mind and body at ease

If powdery white sand beaches backed by swaying palms sounds like your idea of paradise, the South Palms Resort is a perfect choice. Take your pick from one of the two swimming pools, relax on a hammock in the shade of the palms and enjoy a delicious cocktail at the colourful beach bar before savouring fresh seafood at the restaurant. Rooms are split between two wings, both offering single-storey thatched roof bungalows furnished with locally crafted wood and splashes of colour giving them a comfortable, holiday feel. This idyllic resort is ideal for a few days of peace and tranquility after after exploring Bohol's many attractions.

  • Two swimming pools
  • Thatched roof bungalow rooms
  • Spacious palm tree filled grounds
  • Beautiful unspoilt beach

Exceeded Expectations for our Honeymoon

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

We visited in July, and made late bookings so we were lucky to have even landed a great room from this excellent hotel. I had no idea that it was going to be such a grand experience, so we were really in for a surprise! I honestly thought that July was gonna be a ghost season, but the hotel was almost fully booked and it was alive, but you would never get the feeling of it being too crowded or that you don't have any privacy at all. Thanks to its massive property, it seemed like the resort just sits on the whole island. We were greeted with a refreshing beverage and cold towels with warm smiles right upon arrival. We arrived a couple hours early hoping to just leave our bags, tour the rest of Bohol, and check in much later; but we were promptly checked in to our room which is something you don't see often in the hotel business. We absolutely appreciated the gesture as it was quite hot, and I am pregnant and uncomfortable. The room was very spacious and though it was not right in front of the beach, you can still see the beach and palm trees from our room. The walk to and from the beach is so pleasant and perfect for romantic moments. We got a welcome native bag, and some wine too (!!) which we both absolutely loved. It's those small touches that really make one feel very welcomed, and the South Palms did a pretty good job at it. The bed was VERY COMFORTABLE!!! :) There was plenty of beach umbrellas, bean bags or beach bed, enough for everyone. They have designated areas for checked-in guests too, so you won't have to worry about a spot. We did some kayaking, for free, and the water was absolutely clear and cool. Don't even get me started on the food at the breakfast buffet or dinner. We loved the international options, delicious and healthy ones were all there. The mangoes - my husband went nuts over the mangoes, and the waitstaff just kept serving him more. We also availed of the private romantic sunset dinner as we were celebrating our second honeymoon in lieu of our second wedding. We were put in this airconditioned room with a private butler and romantic music, with champagne and a bouquet for me. Everything was just perfect. If there was any downside to this, it was the ants in the room which only appeared if you leave some food out. However, this came as no surprise because upon check in they will prime you about insects since this is a tropical country after all. All in all, great experience and I just couldn't help but imagine going back there years later with our kids and even parents, and telling them how much we loved this place back in "2018."
