Top 5 Luxury Resorts in The Philippines


Resorts in the Philippines are extremely popular. However, not all of them boast private beaches, or world-renowned spas. There are several resorts that not only allow you to enjoy the natural splendor of this island nation, but immerse yourself in an all-inclusive luxury experience. If you’re looking for the best of the best when it comes to luxury beach resorts, then look no further than our five picks. Whether you want to fly to this stunning Asian paradise for spring break, or simply need to get away from the tediousness of everyday life, these five luxury resorts in the Philippines will have everything you’d ever want and MORE.

Aman Resort, Amanpulo

Our first selection is one of the most private, exclusive, and stunning destinations in this beautiful country. Not only is Aman a world renowned luxury resort, but it is an all encompassing beach getaway. The villas and “Casitas” are designed to work in harmony with the surrounding natural beauty and it is utterly breathtaking. Located on the private island of Amanpulo, Aman Resort is the perfect place for relaxation, romance, and even excitement. You can go kitesurfing, then be completely pampered at the onsite wellness spa. 

Though the island vilas are very secluded, it actually doesn’t take a lot to get to this private luxury getaway. Take your Philippine Airlines flight into Manila International, where you will be escorted to Amanpulo’s private lounge for a small flight to Amanpulo’s airstrip. Nothing says high-end resort like a private lounge and flight all for guests!
