There’s no shortage of luxury hotels around, and you can never get too much of it. Whether you’re a sophisticated traveler, or a deserving staycationer, you’ll always be looking for a relaxing atmosphere, great facilities, and excellent service. Filipino-owned Bellevue Resort in Bohol is a 5-star hotel that invited us for to experience all these. Lemme show you around.


From the moment you step into the lobby, Bellevue gives you a warm Filipino welcome with cool refreshing drinks.


A tour of the hotel was in our agenda that afternoon. The presidential suite has 2 bedrooms with kitchen, dining, living room, bathrooms, and its own jacuzzi showing us what a few extra zeroes can give you. If you don’t feel presidential but want the jacuzzi, then the honeymoon suite might better suit you.


If you build it, the party will come.

We may not have received either room, but ours was spacious and homey. I crashed on the couch as soon as I had a chance, and I got cozy on a coffee table while checking my emails. There was a working desk, but…but…cozy coffee table!

We were given a corner room with a balcony and a charming view of the ocean. I’m such a morning person now that I absolutely love it when you wake up with the sun shining through large glass doors and white curtains, and you can hang by the balcony or the couch while enjoying a cup of tea.

Or realistically, while checking your social media feeds.


Mornings at The Bellevue Resort. That beach is shallow, making it family friendly.

With such luxury, it’s inspiring to learn that The Bellevue Resort is an advocate of the environment. As an ASEAN Green Hotel Awardee, the resort operates in an eco-friendly manner, and energy conservation measures are in place. They’re proud of other green-related activities, such as regular beach clean-up among the staff and with the public. This places them at par with ASEAN standards and supports the vision of the ASEAN community in promoting sustainable tourism practices.
