Panglao welcomes its first 5-star gem: JW Marriott Panglao Island Resort & Spa

Panglao, a highly sought-after tourist destination in Bohol, is gearing up to welcome its maiden 5-star hotel.

The forthcoming development, known as JW Marriott Panglao Island Resort & Spa, is a joint venture between AppleOne Group Inc., a prominent real estate developer based in Cebu, and JW Marriott, a renowned name in the luxury hospitality sector and a part of Marriott International’s esteemed portfolio.

With Bohol being one of the country’s premier tourist hotspots, AppleOne is poised to leverage its expertise in hotel and property development to elevate the hospitality offerings in this captivating region.

This collaboration marks AppleOne’s third partnership with Marriott International, following the successful ventures of The Sheraton Cebu Mactan Resort and the Fairfield by Marriott Cebu Mactan.

Ray Manigsaca, president and CEO of AppleOne Group, acknowledges the pent-up demand for travel and the desire to create cherished experiences after enduring the challenges posed by the pandemic.

“We aim to capitalize on this resurgence and entice travelers by bringing the essence of luxury to regions such as Bohol, where the abundance of experiences and tourist destinations can be truly appreciated,” said Manigsaca.

This 5-star haven will seamlessly blend modern sophistication with the natural splendor that Bohol is renowned for.
