It’s truly awe-inspiring from up here. At around 17:30 the colors start to drift in and out of the loose clouds and then about 18:00: BOOM… 

The sun drops like an egg yolk into the sea. You’re almost expecting steam to come from the sea as the sun hits it. It creates a glow over Balicasag Island, and then orange, blue, red, and purple all assault your eyes for about 30 minutes. Nature’s fireworks. Breath-taking. Once in your life, get up to the 4th floor and watch the show!!! Wifey and I, just hugged and silently stared at its beauty.

BE Grand Resort Panglao Bohol

BE Grand Resort Panglao will eventually have its own blog when I get a chance to write it up. But, I thought it important to mention because Chef Fontilla has THREE restaurants here: The Monkey BarThe Boathouse, and Lune Bar. WOW!!!

So, folks, welcome to a tropical haven where luxury meets paradise – BE Grand Resort Panglao Bohol! If you’re dreaming of a getaway that combines stunning ocean views, impeccable hospitality, and a touch of Filipino charm, you’ve come to the right place, and we sure did for our two-night stay. This resort is a top choice for travelers, and when we stayed something like 90% of those travelers were from Korea, which is just so awesome to see.

Nestled on the enchanting Panglao Island in the PhilippinesBE Grand Resort Panglao Bohol offers a retreat like no other. With its lush gardens, pristine beaches, and a range of accommodation options, this resort caters to every traveler’s whims. Whether you’re seeking relaxation by the pool, water adventures, indulgent spa treatments, and of course the most exquisite food options, BE Grand Resort delivers it all.
