As far as dream destinations go, Amanpulo definitely lives up to its title. Its scenery is just *breathtaking.* In case you missed the memo though, the luxurious private island is yet another celebrity-magnet favored for its elusive and exclusive nature, lavish villas, and majestic ocean views. Plus, the property's pristine white sand beaches are the perfect background for your low-key sexy pics. ;)
This tropical paradise has seen the likes of Jessy Mendiola, Luis Manzano, Maja Salvador, KC Concepcion, Heart Evangelista, Lovi Poe, Maggie Wilson, Erich Gonzales—and the list goes on.
Where is it located?
Amanpulo is the brainchild of Singapore-based luxury hotel group Aman Resorts. It was first opened to the public in 1993 and is located in the privately-owned Pamalican, an islet marooned in the Cuyo Archipelago, northeast of Palawan. To get there, guests must board a chartered plane for 70 minutes, starting from the Amanpulo Lounge hangar at NAIA, to the island's own landing strip.
How much does it cost to stay?
The price of one's stay depends on whether they choose a Casita or a Villa. Either way, these gorgeous accommodations "are serenely set on the beachfront or ensconced within the forest canopy," promising stunning landscape sceneries and tranquil seclusion. A Casita can range from $1,200 to $1,900 (approximately P60,300 to P95,000) per night, while a Villa can go up from $3,200 to $7,900 (approximately P160,800 to P397,140) per night, based on your preferences and the date of your stay.
This is exclusive of your roundtrip flight to and from the island, which costs $495 (approximately P24,877) per adult, and $295 (approximately P14,825) per kids aged two to 11 years old.
Whether you're flying solo or you're on a couples retreat, one of Amanpulo's five Casitas will undoubtedly provide you with everything you need. Each 68-square-meter cottage is built with high vaulted ceilings, a personal bar, a private wooden deck, direct access to the beach, and turquoise sea views.

If you really want a taste of the high life, though, Amanpulo's villas are the definition of grandeur. Built for "seamless indoor-to-outdoor living," each home boasts of a private swimming pool, a personal bar, and outdoor lounging and dining areas, just to name a few. Guests will also be spoiled with their own personal staff during the entirety of their stay, including a private chef, a butler, and club cars.
One-Bedroom Villa (119 square meters)
Two-Bedroom Villa (215 square meters)
Three- Bedroom Villa (283 square meters)
Four-Bedroom Villa (351 square meters)
Splurging on a luxury getaway is never complete without taking advantage of the premium, one-of-a-kind experiences right at your fingertips. Apart from lounging at the beach, guests can also go scuba diving, snorkelling, or kite surfing. However, if you're not one for the adrenaline rush, you can always sit back and sail the seas with a sunset cruise.
