A Glimpse at Bluewater Panglao's Rooms and Villas

Last year, I was so fortunate to be one of the first bloggers to have a glimpse of the then newly-opened Bluewater Panglao. During the soft launch, I was toured around by the resort’s general manager. Only the premiere deluxe rooms at the first floor were open for occupancy that time. The villas aren’t finish yet. And so this year, on my second visit at Bluewater Panglao, let me share with you how the rooms and villas look like now.

We got the 68 sqm premiere deluxe room on the first floor beside the lagoon-shaped swimming pool. Bluewater Panglao’s signature look includes two queen-sized cantilevered beds accented with a nicely-woven red bed runner. 

The premiere deluxe room has a private veranda overlooking the pool. It is a perfect spot for having coffee breaks or even en suite breakfast.

All the rooms in Bluewater Panglao have a bathtub in a warmly-lit spacious bathroom. The non-skid flooring in the entire room makes it very child-friendly. There is also a rainshower that drizzles on stone flooring for a closer-to-nature look. Think about taking a bath in a waterfall.

Clean towels and premiere bath amenities are all provided in the rooms. For added security, a safety deposit box big enough to fit a laptop and your other gadgets is tucked in a wooden closet.

For the coffee addicts like me, no need to worry as the room has its own coffee-making facility. The mini bar is also full of sodas, juices, bottled water and a few liquor available at friendly hotel rates.

I also went around checking out the villas. I remember last year, during my visit, that the GM told me that they were planning to put a lagoon to surround the villas. When I checked out the villas this time, the lagoon isn’t there yet but instead, verdant lawns surround the well-maintained villas.

The family villa is the most spacious (and dearest) of all the types of accommodation at Bluewater Panglao. It has two bedrooms with a private dipping pool, perfect for a family who wants to be away from the crowd and just enjoy the island life. 

For couples, the honeymoon villa is the perfect match. Bluewater Panglao has three honeymoon villas: Pamilacan, Balicasag and Cabilao, all named after the famous islands surrounding Panglao. It has its own dipping pool, a bathtub with an LCD television, a mini bar and guess what? An Illy Espresso Machine. How cool is that? If you are a follower of the local travel show, Pinoy Explorer, you will remember that once, the charming host Aga Muhlach had spent a night in this villa.

The villas are nearer the resort’s restaurant – Aplaya. You can also request for a golf cart to tour you around the resort in case you are too tired to walk. But for me, I enjoyed walking around Bluewater Panglao while feasting on lush, verdant landscape – a form of exercise after munching too much Ube Kinampay

Special thanks to Ms. Margie Munsayac for making our stay at Bluewater Panglao all worthwhile.
