A new landmark in Bohol
Crown Regency Grand Paradise Resort Bohol, a member of Radisson Individuals is targeted for opening in 2025 and will feature 558 bright, spacious, locally-inspired rooms and suites with lake or forest views. The resort, designed by the renowned Palafox and Associates, is inspired by “Pahinungod”, a Visayan term which represents dedication and offering, and pays homage to the revered festival in Bohol of the same name.
The resort’s interiors reflect local artistry and craftsmanship, an ode to Filipino heritage and culture while reflecting warm tones and contemporary tropical elements. Each of the ground floor rooms feature direct access to the resort’s pools, while a collection of eight stunning standalone villas will immerse visitors in a private sanctuary. Facilities will comprise tropical outdoor pools, a spa, a fitness center and diverse F&B venues, including an all-day dining destination, a specialty Chinese restaurant, a 1950s-themed bar, a lobby lounge and a pool bar. The resort will offer a 900-square-meter convention centre, a world-class and large-scale MICE venue in Panglao. This 1500-pax venue will be complemented by a 400-square meter ballroom and three smaller meeting spaces, setting the stage for a wide variety of events, from corporate gatherings to one-of-a-kind weddings.
Business and leisure guests will be able to explore the wonders of Panglao, which is emerging as one of the Philippines’ most desirable destinations thanks to its soft, sandy beaches, crystal-clear seas and vibrant coral reefs. The resort is also conveniently located close to the bridge that connects Panglao with neighbouring Bohol Island, a designated UNESCO Global Geopark which is home to the iconic Chocolate Hills.
Bohol-Panglao International Airport, which is just 12km from the resort, offers direct connections to key domestic cities such as Manila, which is just one and a half hour away, as well as international flights to South Korea.
