Apulit Island is beautiful for total relaxation. We loved that there were no jet skis or motorised water sports... It keeps the island peaceful. Staff were so lovely and accommodating. Food was absolutely amazing! We fell in love with the place. Our only complaint was that the bed was way to hard. Much like sleeping on the floor. Besides that, heaven on earth.
If you live in a city and have had the easy life and just want to get away from reality for a time, this is the place for you. Set on a beautiful palm covered beach about 20 miles off the paved road you will find Palm Bay Resort. So leave your dress shoes and high heals at home and bring your boots and sandals.
Hotel is slightly out of town but an excellent value. The only drawback is the availability of transportation out of the hotel location after dark. You can't walk to the main road because the rain frequently washes out the dirt road turning it to mud and impassable pools of water. The tricycles rarely have a reason to pass by the hotel and if they do they are full of passangers. The hotel was kind enough to provide free transportation on occasion but this was a little limiting. The have a beautiful pool, the gardens are well mainatined. The managment is solid and were able to arrange very good tours to the local sights. I would stay there again and would reccomend the location to travelers looking for a great value.
It would be unfair to rate the this hotel on things like condition or comfort, seeing as how I arrived just days after one of the most powerful typhoons on record had ripped across the island. There was no running water, power was from a generator for just a few hours a day, and the damage caused by Yolanda was still being repaired - but I still had a great time there, and I would be more than happy to go back.
