Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa is a beautiful resort-spa in Panglao Island which is at the southernmost tip of Bohol, Philippines. It is located halfway through Panglao along its coast facing Bohol Sea. It is a sprawling property which covers 16 hectares. Topography of the resort is varied. It has a gradually descending cliff, flat land, a ravine, caves and has a commanding view of the sea. On the higher ground of the resort, you can view a mountain with lush vegetation. Down the beach is a long stretch of white, powdery sand up to 5 kilometers, 600 meters of which is part of Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa. The name Eskaya refers to the only known indigenous people of Bohol.

The resort is boutique in style which accounts for its exclusivity. Architecture of the building is decidedly Filipino with a splash of modern amenities. The thatched villas or “balai” in the dialect, are single-detached. These are built with sturdy construction materials, but the ample use of indigenous materials for finishing like bamboo, cogon, and wood is emphasized. Most of the villas have individual private swimming pools. The focal point of the resort is the infinity swimming pool which definitely blends with the sea at its bluest. The spacious restaurant has a cool feeling, yet with a warm ambience and plenty of sea view and swimming pool view. Dining can also be at the beach al fresco, at the poolside and in the garden. The caring staff make your stay more worthwhile and memorable. Their simplicity & graciousness make you feel relaxed & pampered.

Climate
Panglao Island is shielded from the harsh effects of tropical cyclones by mainland Bohol and its neighboring islands. As in most parts of Bohol, it has a very nice, tropical climate without many variations. The nicest period to stay in Bohol is from November to February, when the climate is slightly cooler, while during summer, which lasts March to May, the climate is slightly hotter than normal. Bohol does not have a very clear-cut dry season. It can rain any day of the year, but you can only experience heavy downpour from June to November.

Clothing
Lightweight cottons and linens are worn mostly throughout the year, but warmer clothes are useful on cooler evenings. It could be windy at times in the resort especially in the evening. A hat and shades help a lot especially during summer. Rainwear or umbrellas are advisable for the rainy season.

Language
Filipino (Tagalog) is the official language. The local dialect is Visayan. Most Filipinos use English when speaking to foreigners.

Sports
Activities include beach volleyball, badminton, pingpong and water sports like jet-skiing, kayaking, snorkeling, etc. Guests can also play chess or scrabble.

Other Attractions
Bohol is blessed with natural wonders that one would agree that here life is not only a beach. After some lazing in the sand, visitors can be cooled down with the refreshing sites of Loboc River, a man-made forest, the Chocolate Hills, and an unforgettable encounter with the cute tarsier.
