Amanpulo’s 29 Beach Casitas come with a private path that leads through a tangle of bush directly onto a white-sand beach. The four Treetop Casitas climb with the palm trees high above the island, while the five Hillside Casitas offer unimpeded sea views. The resort's two Deluxe Hillside Casitas feature spectacular prospects of the Sulu sea and the neighbouring islands. Each casita comes with a gasoline-powered golf cart for exploring the island.
Amanpulo also has its own private villas for rent. The Nature Villa (Casa Kalikasan ) is a spacious 4,140 meter villa that can accommodate up to eight guests. It features four free-standing bedrooms, a separate living room, kitchen, and open-air dining pavilion, all set around a garden courtyard. There are two golf carts available for the exclusive use of villa guests and three permanently assigned villa attendants.
The West Villa (Casa Kanluran) lies within a 5.6 hectare complex, stretching from the hillside down to the sea. It features three private casitas (identical to the resort casitas), a main villa designed for up to 10 children and nannies (with four bedrooms, three bathrooms and a living room), a kitchen and private beach club. There are four golf carts available for the exclusive use of villa guests, and three permanently assigned villa attendants.
Villa guests enjoy the use of all resort facilities and services.
Amanpulo, (peaceful island) is set on a private island all its own. Pamalican is part of the Quiniluban group, which makes up the northern half of the Cuyo Islands. It's one of nearly 1,800 islands in Palawan, the largest province in the Philippines. A low-lying coralline island, Pamalican is covered with a sandy jungle of thickets and bush and rimmed by seven square kilometers of pristine reef. At its widest point, the 5.5-kilometer tropical island is only 500 meters across.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust
Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. Mary Ritter Beard
During the pre-Hispanic era in the Philippines, the preferred Austronesian methods for food preparation were boiling, steaming and roasting. The ingredients for common dishes were obtained from locally raised livestock. These ranged from kalabaw (water buffaloes), baka (cows), manok (chickens) and baboy (pigs) to various kinds of fish and seafood. More details at Philippines Cuisine History and Influences
For festive occasions, people band together and prepare more sophisticated dishes. Tables are often laden with expensive and labor-intensive treats requiring hours of preparation. In Filipino celebrations, lechón (also spelled litson) serves as the centerpiece of the dinner table. It is usually a whole roasted pig, but suckling pigs (lechonillo, or lechon de leche) or cattle calves (lechong baka) can also be prepared in place of the popular adult pig.
