Experiencing Bohol and its magnificence with Alturas Group

Bohol is famous for its nature’s treasures. Aside from the Chocolate Hills, the Jewel of the Philippines is known for its pristine beaches, extraordinary marine life, and fantastic diving spots. The island province in the Central Visayas region attracts visitors worldwide because of its stunning and diverse attractions.

Bohol has definitely become an undeniable choice for vacations and getaways.

Alturas Group is a strategic partner for growth in Bohol and remains a forerunner in the development of its vibrant economy. They have businesses all around Bohol and started operations in 2004. This, of course, serves different classes of the market with national players as tenants. 

Alturas Group recently brought Village Pipol Magazine to Bohol to experience its magnificence!

So, if you’re itching for a new kind of adventure lately, you can visit the tourist spots that we visited with Alturas Group. Filled with beaches and rainforests, you can definitely get the piece of relaxation that we’ve all been hoping for in this tropical island life. 

South Palms Resort in Panglao, Bohol

For the first day of the trip, we flew from Manila to Tagbilaran and immediately went to South Palms Resort in Panglao to check in. It features a tropical paradise of fine white sand, crystal clear waters, and swaying palm trees. It also has a traditional Filipino ambiance along the beach of Bohol. The resort also allows guests and visitors to enjoy a tranquil holiday at the tropical island paradise. 

Inside the resort, we visited Artistica which, since September 2020, has become an area where they showcase original Boholano art pieces. It’s a small executive bespoke meeting space, based on individual preference. The resort can also create a customized schedule of experiences, activities, and dining designed to improve both productivity and team building. 


The resort has 78 rooms and villas that definitely exude tranquility, privacy, and modernity. It also mixes traditional Filipino design with a modern touch in their rooms and villas. Aside from that, each room and villa also offers free Wi-Fi, a flat screen cable television, air conditioning, safety deposit box, terrace, mini refrigerator, and a private bathroom with different amenities. The accomodations include Panglao Villa, Premium Beach Front, Deluxe Beach Front, Deluxe Pool View, Deluxe Garden View, and Beach Villas. 

South Farms in Panglao, Bohol

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses experienced challenges which led to hardships and layoffs. And, because of that South Farms was born to support local communities. During the first day, we also got to know about their South Farms. It is a nine-hectare organic land property located in Panglao, Bohol. They promote rural, handmade, handcrafted, and hand-built tourist destinations.

Aside from that, the site also features nature-based-family-oriented tourism attraction and caters fun activities and local events. They also provide a significant recurring source of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and other agricultural items for South Palms Resort and North Zen Villas for both guest consumption and staff dining.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to tour around the farm due to heavy rains. But, the farm also offers Farm Walks and Workshops to let guests emerge with farm animals and farm day tour. Aside from that, it also provides guests with experiences at crafting clay pots, weaving native baskets, and essential coconut oil. They also offer other farm activities and general facilities.

Panglao Shores

One of the projects that Alturas Group that was recently revealed revolved around their bold new vision for development on the island of Bohol. This comes with the launch of Panglao Shores, a 57-hectare mixed-use project. This marks sustainability, community, and local culture as its guiding principles.

As South Farms continue to develop and improve, it became a place that represents the essense of the inclusive culture and community ethos of the Alturas Group. The farm also became an inspiration for the entire Panglao Shores development. 

Panglao Shores have also integrated six hotels and resorts, a 37,000 sqm. of retail and commercial space. They have over 1,000 residential units and an international medical facility, while seamlessly weaving sustainability and social responsibility into the fabric of the project and the wider destination.

It is no doubt that Bohol is a tropical paradise. So, we are extremely thankful to Alturas Group for allowing us to experience South Palms Resort and learning more about South Farms and Panglao Shores.
