Angol Point Beach Resort is ideal if you are looking for privacy. “Peaceful” is the word that describes the resort best, as it is located along the pathway in the southern part of White Beach — away from the noisy areas. It has just 8 cottages to offer, which in a way guarantees privacy.
The resort is owned by Francis Tayengco, a Filipino-Chinese architect who divides his time between New York, where he lives and work for half the year restoring historical monuments and the Philippines, where he shuttles between Iloilo and Angol Point. Besides being an architect, Francis is also an ardent environmentalist, who designed the resort in 1990 to blend harmoniously with its surroundings and a magnificent, perfectly-maintained coconut grove.
Since the Chinese considers 8 as a lucky number, the eigth octagonal cootages are built on the lawns at a considerable distance from one another. amidst the lush greenery and coconut grove. The surrounding exudes a deep sense of peace and tranquility, something quite rare in Boracay.
The wooden cottages with nipa roofs are spacious and the interiors are tastefully decorated. Beautiful wood flooring, bamboo furniture, braided bamboo ceiling and walls make up the room. Capiz windows with mosquito screens look out onto the garden while cottages 1 and 5 look out to the sea. The marble bathrooms are pleasant despite the absence of hot water. All the cottages have large terraces with armchairs and hammocks.
Angol has no restaurant. Only tea and coffee are served in the terraces in the mornings. However, there are many restaurants nearby where you can get meals. For breakfast, English Bakery 3 is just a few steps away. For other meals, you can try the Italian restaurant Floremar de Mano or the Thai restaurant Sulutha and Jazz Up Cafe for music in the evening.
The resort offers services such as organizing your airport transfers or helping you plan banca excursions around the area.
