Happy 3 ChaMike | Bellevue Resort Bohol
|Bellevue Resort Bohol|
Fell in love the first time I saw Bellevue Resort on the internet and I had been imagining myself wading in the powdery shores of the resort. So I got so giddy when I checked that they were offering a Romantic Couples Promotion during off peak season which was perfect on our booking date.
Bellevue Resort Bohol is a luxurious 5 star resort that operates in Panglao Bohol. It boasts on high-end guest rooms, exclusive beach, superb cuisines & excellent amenities. This is a perfect getaway for those people seeking for a sanctuary.
I prepared everything for this particular trip, little did Mike know that I had secret plans for us during our stay (you will find out as you continue reading).
After the Countryside Tour, Joseph dropped us off and we were welcomed by their friendly staff and immediately dangled in a Bellevue shell necklace while some staff helped us with our luggages.
The moment I laid my feet on the Bellevue ground I knew that this was going to be a perfect weekend getaway for ChaMike. We were supposed to go dolphin watching on our second day but decided to skip and had a Bellevue Staycation instead.
Deluxe Double Room
So when we got inside our room at the second floor, we were delighted with what we saw...
|King Sized bed with a towel shaped like a kissing swan- <3|
I saw Mike's surprised face when he saw this complimentary Anniversary Chocolate Cake, I requested this prior to our stay.
|As per request, our complimentary Anniversary Chocolate Cake- It tasted really good btw! <3|
Aside from the many surprises, I got so kilig with the interior and amenities of our room.
Telephone, LCD TV with Cable, Mini Bar & Refrigerator, Complimentary Bottled Water, Coffee and Tea Making Facility, Veranda, Welcome Fruit Basket, Safety Deposit Box, Bathrobe, Slippers, Iron and Stand.
|The room is luxurious & very well furnished|
|Mini Ref, Bar, Coffee & Tea Making Facility, Complimentary Bottled Water|
|Spacious Closet with Robe, Safety Deposit Box, Iron & Stand|
The bathroom was BIG! It has a bathtub and separate shower with bathroom amenities such as shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, shower cap, dental kit, comb, shaving kit.
Another Couple Promotion was a Romantic Dinner for two. Planned this too on my own as a surprise for Mike (On a separate blog)
|Dinner by the beach <3|
I, more than anything else was so excited to experience the beach! A bit embarrassing but yes, this was our first beach trip this year so even if it was really hot outside Mike and I didn't mind swimming at 12 in the afternoon!
|Wouldn't mind staying here at all!|
The sand was sugary, the sea was inviting and the sky was unbelievably beautiful! Thank God for a sunny weather!
|This is Paradise! <3|
Because it was an off peak season there were very few guests, which was just perfect for our ultimate retreat (I don't like crowded beaches)
|The Nudo Swimwear is just perfect for this beach trip!|
|Beach Essentials: Good Read, Hat, Georgina Sasha Sun Protect and the new GSunnies- Kahoy Edition!|
The water was clear and pristine. Mike and I spent hours swimming, we had the whole beach all to ourselves!
|Shades of Blue|
In the afternoon we decided to spend some time with their highly-acclaimed infinity pool.
|This time I wore Isola Swimwear (notice the not so flattering tan line)|
|Love this swimsuit <3|
|Oh hello there!|
|Like a boss (hehehe)|
|This is Life <3|
Bellevue also offers the loveliest sunsets…
|While waiting for the sunset- Cardimono from GeorginaSasha.com|
|No filter needed here <3|
|This too <3|
|Shades of Purple… my fave color!!!|
Included in the Romantic Couples Promotion was a daily buffet breakfast for two at the Lamian Restaurant.
The food varies everyday so you won't get that umay factor. Every morning was a surprise for us.
It was also the same time when Filipina celebrity Ruffa Gutierrez and her kids went there. Her kids even photobomed in one of my pictures. :)
|They also have a Bee Farm items for sale|
Everything was good and filling but please don't skip the danggit! It's super sarap :)
Food & Restaurant
Marea Al Fresco Dining
Aside from the Lamian Restaurant an Al Fresco Dining is also available.
|So nice at night|
|Interior of Marea|
This was where we ordered our ala carte lunch, the food was very well planned and absolutely delish! I ordered Malunggay Chicken P399 and Mango Shake P100 while Mike ordered Grilled Chicken Breast with Mushroom P299.
|Grilled Chicken Breast with Mushroom P299|
I really liked their Malunggay Chicken, a barbecue boneless chicken thighs with barbecue rice and malunggay garnish. The presentation was as beautiful as its taste.

Dinner at the Garden
Bellevue offers gimmicks from time to time especially during weekends and this time it was Barbecue Buffet Night! Mike offered to treat me for P899++ per head so since it was our last night, we gave it a shot and ate our hearts out!
|Movie & Barbecue night at the Garden :)|
|For Grilling & Frying: kebabs, pork, dimsum, shanghai, seafood|
I got almost all grilled especially the seafood, I skipped the fried but helped myself over the steak. (Of course, no one skip steaks!)
|Finished products of grilled and fried plus US Top Blade|
The salad area was my absolute favorite! I usually don't eat salad on buffets but their selection were just yummy - Kani Salad, Okra Salad and Pako Salad (I even had a take two of the Okra and Pako Salad)
|Salad! Kani, Cucumber, Okra, Pako|
|Maki, Sushi and Salad Buffet|
Skipped the Pasta, Rice and Potato selection too! Avoiding carbs so I can eat as many proteins and sweets as I want! hehehe
|Carbo Overload: Pasta, Potatoes|
Desserts! Can't help but eat a bit of each selection.
|Dessert: Mango Float, Banana Cake, Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Cake|
|With my handsome dinner date. <3|
|Tried this as part of the package|
|Air Hockey, Table Tennis, Table Football and Basketball|
|Kiddie Play area|
Also included when booking a room are Airport-Hotel and Hotel-Airport Transfers. You just have to inform the front desk upon check-in.
Staying at Bellevue Resort was truly exceptional! They have excellent customer service and all our needs and requests were taken cared of very well. The Romantic Couples Promotion cost for only P20,000.00 (3 days 2 nights) but it felt as if we paid for much more. Very sulit indeed! I highly recommend you to book here when you're in Bohol. By the way the promo is until December 14 of this year.
