BOHOLiday 2016 (Day 1) -The BELLEVUE Experience!

And just like that, we were at the grand reception of one of the finest premiere luxury resorts in Bohol, The Bellevue Resort in Doljo, Panglao. Upon setting foot at the hotel’s elegant lobby, a group of Bellevue staff welcomed us with a Bellevue native necklace and a glass of lemon grass iced tea. (we felt like a VIP really , VIP treatment continues after Day 2 and Day 3 post).

Check-in was seamless, the people were all welcoming. It was already 3:45 PM when we arrived and our scheduled photoshoot was at 4pm. Nevertheless, our photographer Mr. TJ Medrana, gave us the needed time to relax and freshen up first. He patiently waited for us with his wife Shiela. We headed to our room and all we could ever say was WOW (here & there)! My daughter, Chaela, couldn’t even stopped saying “Wow mommy super ganda dito!” We booked an Ocean View Deluxe Room with 2 queen-sized bed and 1 extra-bed for our eldest (without extra cost). The room is really big and will pass as a suite! We have a balcony boasting off the view of the beach and the spectacular infinity pool.

I was anxious to see the bathroom and I was not disappointed. It’s very spacious! It has shower with glass walls, and a bathtub with ample room, for ultimate relaxation. So we all changed clothes, washed up and tidied in a flash! We hurried down the lobby to meet TJ and Sheila again for our photo shoot.

The photo session lasted for an hour. It was short but fun! TJ captured everything as planned. He is very easy to get along with. All our photos are incredible! Thanks again TJ and Shiela.

It was a tiring yet exciting day! The kids can’t wait to dip into the pool and play in the sand. As the day wound down, and after a quick splash, we headed down the restaurant and indulge in some gastronomic immersion at Bellevue’s Marea Al Fresco Restaurant. It was an unforgettable fine dining experience under the moon and the stars with live band on the background. Perfect night for TG! The long array of international buffet dishes satisfied our rumbling tummies and live band music to supplement.


What a day! So happy to experience this with #TeamGonzaga 😉
