We’re Absolutely Smitten with Bohol’s Most Instagrammable Luxury Resort

It’s one thing to take a trip and immerse yourself in everything it has to offer, and it’s another to hold the memories and experiences of it with you forever.


Because pictures paint a thousand words, taking photos is the perfect way to immortalize our favorite trips and vacations. And with this—plus the whole “pics or it ain’t real” culture—comes the pressure of making sure our social media feeds are teeming with #aesthetic.

Cue: the mesmerizing and exclusive Eskaya Beach Resort and Spa, a multi-awarded celebrity favorite that exudes Boholano heritage, culture, and values. Throw in the staff’s warm hospitality plus the resort’s pure tranquility, and you’re in for a luxurious stay you’ll never forget.

The clincher? Everything about it is photo-worthy. Imagine a paradise stay with intricately crafted architecture by the late Francisco Mañosa and invigorating views of nature, and you’ll be happily snapping pictures left and right. Not sure where to begin? We can help you with that!

Perhaps what will capture your attention the moment you step into this 5-star resort is their gorgeous infinity pool. Take it from host and TV personality Tim Yap: a refreshing dip is all you need to take on a brand new day. We don’t think you’d mind looking out onto vast, blue waters set against the calm and clear skies while you’re at it.

If you’re one to sit back, relax, and take in all of nature’s grandeur at the end of the day, that works, too! The best seats in the house are at your disposal any time.

Wellness enthusiasts (and photo junkies) will delight in a visit to Handuraw Spa. Perched on a hill with picturesque views, this peaceful haven relaxes the mind, body, and spirit. It’s the perfect view to capture for days when you’ll need to refresh your senses.

A vacation wouldn’t be as fulfilling without sharing it with those you love. Just like Richard Gutierrez, Sarah Lahbati, and Zion, you too can sit pretty in a kubo overlooking the beach. Not only is it an intimate bonding spot, it’s also an amazing backdrop for a stunning family portrait.

For those traveling with a big group, whether you’re celebrating something special or you just want a photo that screams #squadgoals, their viewing deck that looks out onto the sea makes for both a pretty sight and a pretty picture.


Speaking of something special, you can make milestones happen here, too. Celebrate life with a lush gardenscape with fairy lights for that rustic aesthetic, or flowy whites set against the sea for that easy, breezy beach vibe. The soothing songs of crashing waves make it all the more perfect.

When the day ends, it doesn’t mean your photo op should, too. Bask in the breathtaking sunset that’s easily accessible almost anywhere in the resort. Follow blogger Kryz Uy’s lead and soak up the enchanting moment. Whether you’re watching the vibrant colors come alive in the sky or admiring the graceful sway of their reflection on the water, you’ll realize you’ll never get tired of such a surreal sight.

If you would rather stay within the comforts of your villa (which we think is an equally good idea), you can still take advantage of one of Mother Nature’s greatest spectacles. All you need to do is step into your private deck, breathe in the sea breeze, look up, and smile!

With its long list of things to see, experience, and remember forever, the perfect paradise of Eskaya Beach Resort and Spa is more than just a destination for the ’gram. It’s a getaway that will give you stories worth telling again and again.
