The Ananyana Beach Resort on the original island of Panglao exists since January 2001. After a short time word of the high standards, amiable service and individual ambience of this small, exquisite establishment has spread. Still it has remained an insiderâ€™s tip for those seeking rest. Especially divers appreciate The Ananyana as a distinguished destination to explore the most beautiful diving spots in the heart of the Philippines.
The Ananyana Beach Resort is based around the idea of creating a paradise on earth, a place where you discover yourself and where absolute relaxation takes centre stage. The marvellous location in the midst of a tropical palm garden on the 3 kilometres long white Doljo Beach perfectly meets these requirements. And the unintrusive charm of the employees quickly makes each visitor forget that he is supposed to be a guest â€“ because here you feel like a friend.
The Ananyana is only one of many beach resorts in this world. But it is one of the few where the reality lives up to the dream. And anyone who has experienced this will surely say:
Yes, itâ€™s true.
Fragrant woods. Soft shapes. Natural colours. At The Ananyana all impressions merge together and form a unique harmonic ambience. And if you look closely you will see why: The love for detail is all-consuming.
The visitor is submerged in a sea of living charm and authentic aesthetics. You donâ€™t see things â€“ you breathe them. You donâ€™t forget time â€“ you dream it away. You donâ€™t use your senses â€“ you feel them. Here you live and experience things more intensely.
All the rooms at The Ananyana are a synthesis of safety and longing, of wanderlust and home. Bohemian bathrooms as well as puristic appearing premises create the perfect aura for a vacation abounding in an otherwise rather rare condition: Carefree relaxation.
Ride along the beach on horseback? Join body and soul with the exquisite essences of the resortâ€™s own spa? Discover the original charm of Bohol on two or four wheels? Enjoy a romantic sunset cruising, while the babysitter is lovingly caring for your children? Within the grounds of The Ananyana as well as in its attractive surroundings â€“ everybody will find what they have been searching for in vain elsewhere
The cooks in our open restaurant create Asian and international delicacies based on refined recipes. In the marvellous beach bar you will be served with small snacks and delicious drinks. At the little souvenir shop you will find wonderful examples of Philippine arts and crafts. And the exceptionally designed playground is an attraction for our younger visitors. Thatâ€™s comfort at The Ananyana.
How to get there
European airlines including Lufthansa and KLM fly to Manila several times a week. Asian airlines also serve the capital of the Philippines via Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur. Domestic flights bring you in just one hour to Tagbilaran, the principal city of Bohol Island. There we pick you up in an air-conditioned car and bring you to The Ananyana in just thirty minutes.
There are now direct flights from Europe to Cebu International Airport. However, most major European and Asian airlines bring you there with stops in Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur or Qatar. We pick you up at the airport in an air-conditioned car and take you to the ferry in Cebu City. A high-speed ferry takes you to Tagbilaran in two to three hours, depending on the boat type. Our driver picks you up there in an air-conditioned car, and you arrive at The Ananyana thirty minutes later.
