Heaven is a Place on Earth—and It’s Called Amanpulo

Aside from things in the city, we aspire to witness the relentless beauty of nature.

What We Saw in Amanpulo

The moment you set your eyes on Amanpulo, it will no doubt be love at first sight. Located on Pamalican Island in Cuyo, Palawan, this magnificent haven is a sight to behold. From a bird’s-eye view, you’d instantly see impressive gradients and blue hues of the sea—blending gracefully with the white sand.

Landing and walking on its shores, you will immediately feel the unsurpassable luxury brought by the natural, untainted environment. Plus, going to this paradise is just as fast and convenient—only an hour and ten-minute plane ride from Manila—making it a hotspot for many.

When you get to spend a weekend at Amanpulo, you know you’re about to enjoy best days of your life. For guests, they have top-notch accommodations of casitas and private villas. There are also activities that connect you with nature—stargazing, cruises, diving, wellness, and spa treatments, just to name a few. Interestingly enough, because Amanpulo is such an ideal sanctuary, it’s also a nesting site and home to rich marine life and particular species like the Hawksbill and Green Sea Turtles.

Everything about the island will take your breath away. And at the same time, you get a full breath of nature and tranquility. Painting you a picture of what it’s like staying in Amanpulo, it is undoubtedly a go-to destination for celebrations of love, life, and happiness. For most, it’s their dream to be on such a pristine island—celebrating important milestones with their loved ones.

Working in Paradise

While the waters, sands, and sunsets serve as natural and beautiful backdrops for intimate events, we add magic and flair with flowers and decor. This is why we are honored to be consistently partnering with Amanpulo since 2007. Our partnership with them is one that we value the most. Their never-ending assistance during our setups, camaraderie, and overall friendship are irreplaceable.

Usually, destination events can be a challenge especially when it comes to logistics and staffing. But in Amanpulo, from beginning to end, everything is easy and convenient. Our cargo always arrives safely. And as for staffing, Amanpulo prioritizes and empowers their local community, thus, we do the same by hiring locals first. With their smiling staff and even Monitor Lizards walking by us, setting up in Amanpulo easily feels less like work.

Memorable Events by the Beach

Some of our unforgettable events in Amanpulo include the Omega Seamaster Aquaterra Event and their grand New Year Eve countdowns.

During the Omega event in 2018, we installed “Omega” by the waters and lighted more than 5,000 candles at the beach. This really brought “candlelit” dinners to another level! Would you believe that we hired locals solely for lighting and re-lighting the candles? It definitely was a statement—aligned with and just right for the brand.

As for their New Year Eve countdowns, we were thankful to finish and start anew at Amanpulo with sand, water and fireworks each year. With the liberty to be creative and imaginative in these events, we always find ourselves accomplishing innovative designs—like floating floral installations.

We always love doing events for Amanpulo—no matter how many flights or 32-footer wing vans it would take to get it done!

More Escapes in an Island Beyond Compare

The most unbelievable sights orchestrated and majestically built by nature were created so that people can witness its magnificent force. That’s why among the many things that we aspire to do in life, we always find ourselves going back to the mountains and seas. After all, it’s in nature where we truly belong. And so, we dream to reach and see the natural beauty of the world—starting with our local blissful islands and beaches.

Personally and professionally, I highly recommend Amanpulo. From the glorious views, immaculate waters, and sand, to their impeccable accommodation and services, nothing will let you down. Certainly, one would need to experience what the island has to offer at least once. But having experienced it, I think that everyone would want to go back. Especially given the rough times, this would undeniably be a reward.

Truly, our country has the best beaches and islands in the world and Amanpulo is proof of that. It is truly heaven on earth.
