With Amun Ini Beach Resort & Spa in Bohol and Salaya Beach Houses in Negros Oriental, divers enjoy an upscale island hopping experience and perfect dive services.
Munich, November 19, 2018: With the first two members of the Best Boutique Collection, the new representation company for stylish boutique hotels launches the dive segment and is rolling out in the Philippines.
Nestled in a secluded bay with a private, white sandy beach, Amun Ini Beach Resort & Spa is a hideaway on the South-Eastern part of Bohol in Anda, well tucked away from the partying crowd at Panglao Beach. Set amidst a lush vegetation, the resort with 16 deluxe rooms all with a magnificent sea view is an idyllical tropical gateaway. Located in the center of the Coral Triangle and facing a 15 kilometer long coral reef, Amun ini Dive offers endless diving and snorkelling opportunities with the chance to see a variety of pygmy sea horses, bluering octopus, mimic octopus, mandarin fish, turtles and many more. Non-diving partners enjoy a relaxed day at the beach or a massage in the „al fresco“ spa parlour. Excursions to the famous „Chocolate Hills“ of Bohol, the mystic shaman island of Lamanoc or a visit to the Tarsier reserve to see the tiny primates with their huge eyes, offer a variety of options to choose from.

Negros has often been labelled as the ultimate “muck diving paradise” with Dauin being the capital. Salaya Beach Houses is a charming beach retreat with only nine spacious apartments and penthouses with luxurious amenities and a contemporary yet very warm and welcoming interior design. Divers and photographers with a passion for small details will find a variety of unusual macro critters, while excursions to the nearby Apo Island cater to those looking for fantastic wall diving with healthy corals and large schools of fish. On land, Salaya Beach Houses offers yoga classes both in its own yoga studio and on the shore of the beach with black, volcanic sand. Adventurous minds will enjoy exploring the natural beauty of Negros by bike, try to find their balance on a stand-up paddle board (SUP) or dash down the Tierra Alta on a 600 meter long zip line.

Travelling within the Philippines is easy, making a dive vacation with “island hopping” very popular. International flights arrive in Manila or Cebu and moving forward also on the yet to be opened new Panglao Island International Airport on Bohol. Within the Philippines, Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific Air fly multiple times a day from Manila (MNL) to Dumaguete (DGT) on Negros Oriental and Tagbilaran (TAG) on Bohol. Ferry services connect Negros and Bohol with a two hour journey, a recommendable company is Oceanjet Ferries.
