The Italians have a concept for piddling around known as “Dolce Far Niente,” which means – the sweetness of doing nothing. I learned about this concept after watching Elizabeth Gilbert’s masterpiece Eat. Pray. Love. like a million times. The idea finally sunk in to me so I asked my dear husband to spend a weekend “staycation” with me in one of the resorts in Mactan just because. Sure, there are plenty of high end resorts to choose from but Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort clearly stood out for many reasons.
Secluded atop a limestone cliff on the southern edge of Bohol’s Panglao Island, Amorita Resort is a tranquil seaside retreat that marries world-class service with signature Filipino hospitality. Managed by boutique hotel group One-Of Collection, the luxury resort overlooks the azure–colored Bohol Sea and elegantly punctuates the vibrant tropical landscape along Alona Beach.
