If I have to describe the place in just one word, that’s easy. Wow!
Sprawled in a 10-hectare estate, Tarsier Botanika is a piece of paradise. Located in Panglao Island, Bohol, this garden/luxury resort embodies total relaxation and comfort in a posh manner.
The place is 3 minutes away from the main road. Going there is like finding your way through a camp trail (with a wide enough road instead of a walk path); not knowing what is in store for you at the end. But I’m telling you, it’s absolutely worth the ride!
The resort sits on top of a cliff with easy and convenient access to the cool sea water. It has a restaurant, the Tarsier Paprika, which boasts of its own unique and original dishes; a spa, an equestrian center, boutique, dive shop and a whole lot more.
Obviously, Tarsier Botanika is created out of passion: passion for life and passion for nature. Every detail, furnishings and landscape is verily thought of and planned. Oh wait, did I say nature? Well yes, the resort is covered in greens. Lush vegetation and tropical plants and local flowers are just everywhere.
For anyone out there who’s looking for a haven to unwind, meditate, or wallow in tranquillity, Tarsier Botanika is the place to go. It houses 12 grand villas which are all stylishly built, and classified into 4 types:
Each of these villas offers utmost comfort and peace. It’s like having your own space in the midst of a vast natural landscape. Wherever you look, you only see green plants, blue sky and patches of colored flowers here and there.
There is never a dull moment when in Tarsier Botanika. Activities are abounding. You have the options to go horseback riding, to go diving or swimming, to have a leisurely massage, meditate or exercise, learn crafts or just wander around the garden.
Tarsier Botanika is home to several Lusitano stallions which all came from Portugal. Here, you may experience what it feels like to be a wannabe equestrian. You can either ride or take a crash course on stable management from the owner herself, Patricia Moussempes.
Bohol is known for its diving spots, among the best in the world. At Tarsier Botanika, you can have the best diving experience ever. Their licensed professional diving guide will take you to either Pamilacan or Balicasag Island for a diving experience like no other.
Calm and elegant best describe their spa parlor. Choices of spa treatments come in innovative style, such as:
Ilang Ilang essential oils massage
Chocolate body scrub
Paraffin moisturizing treatment (with manicure)
These are just among the spa essentials that soothe and pamper guests at Tarsier Botanika.
