A true paradise”
Beautiful beach, right from our room. Room was on the first floor. So there was a little very small ant, but room was very clean. Delicious breakfast. Friendly staff. A surprisingly delicious mango shake! Villa Umi was a real heaven. We were so peaceful and happy everyday. I will be coming back next time.

Nice sea view ”
Nice to have breakfast on balcony with sea view. Good service from port to resort and back. You need a bike ideally to enjoy the island and nearby town. Negatives: no hot water. Too cold on occasion. Had to pay unfriendly security guard to pass through adjacent resort ( refunded by Villa Umi). General comment: breakfast was nice but fruit juice would have been nice. We did not try dinner because beer was 140 Peso for a can of Red Horse. Next door was only 70 peso for 500ml bottle, so we ate dinner there or in nearby town.
Excellent Location, Great Service”
Villa Umi was an excellent holiday destination. The location was excellent, the staff Jason, Jake, Harry were very attentive and helpful. The view from the front is breathtaking. Aqua water stretching waist high for 60 metres and warm. Couldn't think of a better place for a quiet, relaxing holoiday.

Huge Rooms! Small and Cozy Hotel. ”
Fantastic beach. We felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. The rooms are huge and the staff very accommodating. We ran out of milk for our toddler and needed a specific kind of milk. The staff went all the way into the city just to get our milk. Will definitely come back!

Hopefully they can have their own right of way so that you don't need to walk like 5 mins from Dumaluan beach resort. I would love to come back because we enjoyed our stay here. Good food, friendly staff and nice place and facilities. Well maintained.

One word: crazy overpriced, compare to Kandaya resort in Cebu ”
Way overpriced, not even any wine. Staff was great . No leadership. I am a five star hotelier. I do not have time for played for a fool. “Suite” monsieur le proprietair, since one is one room a suite . Misleading website . Will not return

Nice staffs, a bit pricey”
Booked a seaview room so we really had a great view. They also helped us with our city tour and island hopping which is great as we booked it just a few days before we get to Bohol and they gave us a nice driver and boatman. It’s only a small resort with a few rooms so cant say much about the facilities. Found the room a bit pricey though as we booked from another hotel in Cebu for half the price but the room is more comfortable, new and modern. The foods were also just ok, small serving so we found them quite pricey too. Complimentary breakfast isn’t buffet (we had buffet on all 3 other hotels weve been to during this travel). Also asked if we can check out a little later so we can complete the Island hopping tour but they said we could not, so didn’t really find this worth the money weve paid.
Hi Jhuna, Good day! Thank you for choosing Villa Umi Panglao Resort. we're glad that you are one of our valued guest. It's our pleasure that you enjoy your stay here and the tours that you booked with us. We serve high quality of Filipino and International Cuisine from 6:00 am until 10:00am.

Best place to stay for a relaxing holiday”
The staff is very friendly and help you in any situation, if you need assistance. The hotel is located at Dumaluan Beach the more quiet place compared to Alona. The beach is wonderful, crystal clear blue water and less other tourists. If you like to spend a night out Alona is near and you can reach it in a few minutes by tricycle. If we will travel again in this region, we will definitely come back!
Dear Christina, Thank you for sharing your wonderful stay at Villa Umi Panglao Resort. Yes, I agree that the staffs are very friendly and will help you in any situation. They are also passionate and detail-oriented to all guest because we care and look forward that we meet your expectations. You can also invite your family and friends on your next vacation in Bohol.

Very relaxing and private. Staff are fantastic. ”
Pros; 1) great service from all the staff. 2) nice, clean and spacious room. 3) nice private front beach. Cons: Shower needs attention. There is no warm water to shower. Hot water it comes for 5 seconds every 5 minutes. Most of quests like me likes to take a warm shower after a day in the beach. It is very uncomfortable and annoying. I would only come back if then property would assure me that this issue has been fixed. Everything else was just fantastic.
Dear Ruby, Thank you for taking time to leave a review about your stay in Villa Umi Panglao Resort. We apologize for the inconvenience brought on this matter, we already took note of that and we assure that this issue has been fix. And yes, our staff did a great job in order to meet guest expectation and satisfaction. We look forward in welcoming you again on your next vacation holiday using the loyalty card direct to us.

Excellent Staff & Well Maintained Resort”
Love the staff! They're super warm, accommodating & helpful. They only have about 5-6 rooms at Villa Umi, so the staff are very attentive, willing to help with whatever you need. Plus, the staff do a good job of maintaining the beach in front of their property, and you can tell just how much work they put into keeping their place in tiptop condition (the other beachfront resorts beside them pale in comparison). Their beds are super amazing as well! One of the most restful sleeps I've ever had! They don't scrimp on pillows either, as the room had tons of extra pillows! They have a huge bathroom too! Honestly, I don't think there's a need to stay at a big, flashy resort in Panglao. Villa Umi just has this quaint charm that I think is perfect for those just wanting peace and relaxation by the beach.
Dear Valerie, Thank you for giving a perfect rating about your stay in Villa Umi Panglao Resort! Yes it is true that the hotel is brand new and it was opened its doors on the best beach of the island, ideal for adults and children alike. The resort have four spacious Executive Suites that can accommodate up to four persons with one extra bed and measures 50 meter squared and one Deluxe Queen Bed Room with Sea View that accommodate for two persons without extra bed and measures 20 meter squared. All of them with a breathtaking view over the sea, personalized service and 20 meters close to the shores as to hear the gentle music of the sea waves during high tide. Decoration is based on artworks around the world with a perfect angle of morning sunrise and moon rise. We served high quality of Filipino and International cuisine. Once again, thank you and we look forward to welcoming you soon as your next vacation holiday using the loyalty card directly! Best regards, Villa Umi Panglao
Lolevly place, secluded location. We walked in after spotting it on agoda and can safely say it's way nicer than the surrounding places in same price range. Excellent stafff, very welcoming and extremely helpful. Lovely stretch of beach, well looked after. Whole place newly built, very fresh, well working quiet ac and huge bathroom. Free shuttle to help find it, as it is quite tricky to get to without instructions. Highly recommended!
Dear Leonardo, Thank you for choosing Villa Umi Panglao Resort for your stay in Panglao Island, Bohol. We are truly delighted to learn that you had an infinitely delightful stay through our secluded lovely beach, newly built resort and excellent costumer’s service. We are grateful for the recommendation and we look forward to your return! Sincerely yours, Teofalyn J. Damasin Villa Umi Panglao Resort
Villa Umi Panglao Beach Resort is a private resort located several miles area from Alona Beach and away from all the traffic. It's a brand new building which only has five rooms. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Showers had warm water and brand new aircon units. The resort beach area was kept very clean. There is no pool! Not much to select from menu. There is a bigger resort near walking distance which I recommend going to for food and live music. I will note that this resort is at the end of a unfinished road so you have to walk with your luggage to the resort by going through the beach area. The resorts near by are working on finishing the road. Overall it was a very nice resort which provided peace and quiet with 24 hour security and clean facility. The staff was very helpful with accompanying with transportation. If your looking for small quiet romantic resort then I will recommend this place again.

The most relaxing beachfront”
I will always choose this hotel location (Dumaluan beach) over the well-hyped Alona beach. The place is very peaceful and makes me sleep well at night, and I can wake up with a relaxing view in the morning. The area is not so commercialised, which means the long stretch of white fine powdery sand beachfront is truly enjoyable. Upon arrival, we have to walk a short distance going to the hotel since there is "Road Right of Way" issues with a private land owner. This is not an issue for us since we get to explore the beachfront, and the hotel staff is ready to help. The room is very spacious for a family of 4, and the interior/terrace has a relaxing view of the beachfront. The food tastes good as well, although a bit overpriced. Special thanks to Kuya Bryan for treating my feet when I got stung by sea urchin. (Please wear aqua shoes always when going farther the beach where there are lots of seaweeds.) Special thanks to all the staff for answering our queries and cater all our requests.
Dear Edgar, Thank you for taking time to write a review about your wonderful stay in Villa Umi Panglao Resort. We take pride in giving extra service to your family.

Once again, thank you and we look forward to welcoming you using the loyalty card direct to us. Best Regards, Villa Umi Panglao Resort
Best of all hotels we visited!!!”
Ok, so it was our honeymoon and did some hotel hopping. By far, the best value we found. Best beach, best hotel. No private access at the moment so you have to walk on the beach a little to get there, but the hotel provides people to carry any luggage from parking to room. Classy place. Museum collection quality decorations, and much more. Amazing place. We both wish we had found this one earlier and we probably would not have need to switch so many times.
Dear Matthew, Thank you for your time writing a review about your amazing stay at Villa Umi Panglao Resort.

Awesome Resort, great staff and 5 star service and sumptuous food”
We enjoyed our stay at this resort. The staff are very attentive and accommodating to our needs. They organised our tour and the complimentary airport dropoff and pickup made it a smooth travel for us. Our beachfront room is comfortable very clean and spacious. Can’t fault this place. We will stay here again. Highly recommended. My only recommendation which probably apply to all the resorts in Bohol is the plastic water bottles and straw. I hope that they will find an alternative to minimise the plastic waste and stop using the small water bottles and plastic straws.
Dear Meriza, Thank you for taking time to share your awesome experience at Villa Umi Panglao resort. And also sharing your suggestions on minimizing the usage of the plastic waste here in our resort. your suggestion can surely help improve our resort. We take pride in giving great service to every guest and we're over joyed to receive your complements and appreciation. We hope to see you soon here again. Best regards, Villa Umi Panglao Resort

Good view resort but bad service!!!!! When we arrived the resort, we requested a van for going to the pier next day, as we booked 11:40am boat back to cebu city! The day when we finished breakfast before check out at 9:30am, double reminded the receptionist that we booked a van, and requested to have the van at 10:30am. However when we went down to the reception to check out at 10:20am, they didn’t arrange anything to us, and we only can get on the van at 11:05am!!!!! ***Boat departure time 11:40am and requested 30mins check in before, 30mins from resort to the pier***

Amazing place and location ”
We stayed here for a week and we are so pleased we did. It’s a lovely villa straight on the beach with amazing views. The beach is amazing, white powdery sand and warm water, it is shallow so you can wade out a fair distance. It gets busy with locals on a weekend but is quieter midweek. The restaurant is fabulous and great value for money and the staff are amazing. Rooms are a great size, mini bar, toiletries and views that you normally only see in magazines. We would recommend this hotel to everyone.
Dear Laura, warm greetings from Villa Umi Panglao Resort! Were so happy to know that your extensive stay here at Villa Umi Panglao Resort was lovely. We are thankful also for your overwhelming complements of our area specially our beach. We really appreciate that you also for recommending our resort to every one. We hope to see you soon with your family and friends. Best regards, Villa Umi Panglao Resort
Beautiful and Clean Beach Resort but there are some cons”
This beautiful, newly built resort is very clean, fresh, & nice. Because it is a small resort it also doesn't feel crowded or busy. The room is very nice and almost at par with a 5 star north American resort with an amazing view. There currently is no access to the resort by road or sidewalk. The staff seem young & inexperienced yet they are accommodating with assisting you to and from the resort. We enjoyed the free use of canoe/kayak. We appreciated that they washed and dried all our sandy sandals for us before we packed them. We loved the music they played & enjoyed the atmosphere. The welcome drink was also very special! With all that said, I contractedTraveller’s Diarrhea after eating Lunch and dinner here the first night. As you can imagine it is not a fun way to spend a vacation! In order to do our Island tour I didn't eat the whole day. I would expect if I am eating at an expensive resort such as yours that this would not happen. They eventually emailed an apology.
Dear Tiffany, Thank you for taking a time to write a review about your stay in Villa Umi Panglao Resort! As of now, we don't have a direct transportation to the resort but a land transportation from Tagbilaran City airport/seaport will bring you to a beach (near Amarella Beach) using our brand new speedboat you will embark about 1 kilometer away from the hotel and there you will disembark into the speedboat right in front of Villa Umi. All the way, your luggage will be carried by our staff until you reach the portals of the reception. Yes, you are right that the staff are young and fresh but now they are well-trained, detail-oriented with personalized service. In our resort, we assist any problems especially diarrhea as highly needed. We look forward to welcoming you on your next visit in Bohol! Thank you. Best regards, Villa Umi Panglao Resort
