Amanpulo resort in Philippines. Accessible only by private plane, tropical Pamalican Island is around an hour from Manila, yet feels a world away from anywhere. Amanpulo is the only property on this Philippine island, its airy Casitas and Villas opening to the 5.5-kilometres of coral sand that encircle a jungled centre. With a convivial poolside Clubhouse, an Aman Spa, Dive Centre and a laidback Beachclub, guests can be as active as they choose; a snorkel on your private beachfront might be all the exertion required to complete a day of restorative lounging. Other diversions include tennis courts, island hikes, turtle spotting and exploring the kaleidoscopic reefs just offshore.
