By National Geographic Traveller The Collection

Spread over 39 acres and composed of just 24 luxurious villas, Eskaya is the most exclusive and luxurious resort on the idyllic Philippine island of Bohol. Each villa has its own private pool and offers stunning garden and sea views. The architecture is rustic-traditional, while the interiors are well appointed with modern luxuries.

The superb Handuraw Spa tops the list of things to do here, offering a menu of traditional Asian and modern European treatments using a blend of sound, touch and colour therapy. The spa has two vast treatment rooms, an outdoor whirlpool bath, and a menu of body-works and treatments drawing on natural, locally sourced ingredients.

The resort also has a private beach, large infinity pool and whirlpool baths inside the villas. There are plenty of ways to boost fitness while enjoying a luxury holiday at Eskaya, with guests able to go mountain-biking, snorkelling and kayaking, as well as having access to the tennis and basketball courts. Diving is a major activity here and visitors can gain certification while exploring the local coral reef, with its abundant wildlife. Lucky guests might even meet the area’s resident dolphin pod.

Meals can be taken privately on the beach, with just the lapping of the waves and the crackling of a fire for company, or at Lantawan Restaurant, with a cool and relaxing ambiance with amazing views of the sea. The menu here is a mixture of Filipino and international dishes and is guaranteed to satisfy every palate.

The Philippines’ renowned natural beauty is arguably the biggest draw, however, and guests are perfectly placed for discovering this breathtaking part of the world. Away from the pristine private beach, the spectacular marine life and colourful corals await beneath the crystal-clear waters, promising unforgettable experiences for snorkellers and divers. On dry land, the island’s rich biodiversity and cultural heritage can be explored on foot or by bike — think hidden churches, cooling waterfalls, Loboc River cruises and the magnificent Chocolate Hills. Hikers should be sure to keep a lookout for the Philippine tarsier, one of the planet’s smallest primates.
