Asia: Bohol Welcomes its Biggest Hotel and First Convention Centre

In partnership with:

Bohol's lack of bigger MICE facilities will ease up with the April opening of the province's reportedly biggest hotel and first-ever convention centre.

Henann Resort Alona Beach will offer 400 keys, more than twice the size of any existing hotel in the province. It also houses a three-storey convention centre that can handle 1,000 seated pax and 1,500 pax for cocktails.

Sprawled on a 6.5ha beachfront in Panglao, the new luxury resort will also have 12 villas, three swimming pools, an open-air venue for weddings, corporate events and themed parties, a VIP lounge, Kai Spa, F&B outlets, and fitness and business centres.

Manual Sandagon, assistant director of sales, said the resort is “an alternative venue for large meetings and conventions in the region aside from being a new destination for leisure and recreation”.

Due to its limited number of hotels, with all of them having fewer than 200 rooms, Bohol is rarely seen as a standalone destination and thus, often twinned with Cebu, which is a short ferry ride away.

However, with the construction of Bohol international airport expected this year, more tourism investments are coming in, said Lucas Nunag, chair of Bohol Tourism Council and owner of Amarela Resort Panglao.
