A LEISURE resort village combining luxury suites and low-rise retail and restaurant developments is underway in Panglao Island, Bohol, slated for launch in 1Q2016.
The resort, named Modala or ‘gathering’ in the local tongue, is located in the vicinity of Bellevue Resort and Ananyana Beach Resort & Spa on Doljo Point.
The 20ha project will have 68 rooms and two levels of retail shops and restaurants in the first phase of development, said Randy Salvador, resort manager of the resort operator, Raintree Hospitality Group.
“It’s a beachfront property, the first of its kind in the Philippines, with a ‘multifaceted’ environment – a mall attached to a hotel, but in a beach setting,” he explained.
Different room categories, including two-room and junior suites will be offered, with room sizes averaging 38m2, Salvador said. A beach-facing pavilion good for 150 pax will also be a key feature of the resort, “perfect for MICE” and ideal for weddings.
TTG Asia e-Daily understands more rooms and boutique properties are expected to to rise in the resort in the future.
Modala joins a number of hotel and resort projects planned for Bohol, which include the soft opening of the 208-key Be Resorts Bohol next month, and the 400-room Henann Resort on Alona beach, which soft opens by May.
