  • 2. A LIFESTYLE The ethos of AMAN is founded in simple luxury, afforded by an exceptional location harmoniously blended with a unique environment. The result is a selection of contem- porary and finely-tuned resorts that offer an enriching, enlightening and rewarding lifestyle experience. This lifestyle is about a lust for faraway places, a fascination with foreign cultures, a desire to escape and relax in surrounds that satisfy and please on all levels, an encounter with nature at her finest and a world apart from everyday life, where needs are met before they are even acknowledged. It is Aman’s understanding of this discerning appetite and a deep appreciation of the creative and elegant that bring kindred spirits to AMANRESORTS and make the ownership or rental experience of an AMAN VILLA truly rewarding. While Aman resorts offer all the privacy, luxury and relaxation guests could desire, Aman Villas take things to an entirely different level. Situated adjacent to a number of Aman resorts around the world – from Thailand to Indonesia, the Caribbean to the Philippines – the villas are the ultimate tier in terms of Aman accommodation options, offering all the services and facilities of the resort in consummate privacy.They also enable families and friends to holiday together, with the obvious benefits of a personal cook, live-in maid and concierge service.The ideal venues for family gatherings and events such as weddings or meetings, Aman Villas also offer owners and guests unlimited access to all the facilities and services of the Aman resort. This ensures a home-away-from-home experience with every possible convenience – from spas and tennis courts to restaurants and libraries – on the side. These gracious villa homes are available for rent through Amanresorts, and, in a number of destinations, for purchase. Ideal for those wishing to rent a piece of paradise for an incredible vacation or own a holiday destination for a lifetime’s worth of enjoyment, Aman Villas and the international clientele that purchase and enjoy Aman’s villa homes around the world constitute a community like no other. Not surprisingly, Aman Villas are rarely offered for resale. 3
  • 3. Clichés abound when it comes to describing the ideal island getaway. The vast archipelago known as the Philippines is where they come true. The beaches are powder white, the seas turquoise blue and the sun rarely leaves the azure sky – except when replaced at night by a myriad of stars. An archipelago of more than 7,100 islands,the Philippines can be divided into four groups: Luzon, the largest and northern- most island, is the site of the capital, Manila. At the other end of the archipelago is the second largest island, Mindanao. The tightly-packed island group in between is known as theVisayas, while off to the west lies the province of Palawan. Palawan incorporates 1,768 islands, one of which is Pamalican. Surrounded by seven square kilometres of coral reef and the balmy waters of the Sulu Sea,Pamalican is home toAmanpulo, ‘place of peace’. Launched in 1993 and located 289 kilometres south of Manila (a one-hour flight), Amanpulo embraces the 90-hectare island in its entirety. As a result, the resort’s facilities enjoy a spacious layout, complementing their natural surroundings and offering guests a serene and peaceful escape. DESTINATION 54

Occupying 4,500 square metres and up, the villas embrace a number of free-standing pavilions situated around the private swimming pool. These include separate bedroom pavilions, living and dining pavilions, an outdoor lounge with sala, a fully-equipped kitchen and staff accommodation.

  • 8. The natural settings of the villas ensure peace and seclusion within each villa itself. For those catering to more than one couple or an extended family, bedroom pavilions are strate- gically positioned to maximise views and privacy. Most offer their own decks suitable for private lounging or dining. Each villa offers a central dining pavilion (below) with a large indoor dining table and chairs, an outdoor dining venue and a fully-equipped kitchen. Villa cooks can create menus according to owner/guest preferences, with options ranging from Philippine specialties to international dishes. The living pavilion of each villa (right) is a comfortable, elegant space in which to relax, read or watch a movie. 1514
  • 9. Guests fly directly to Pamalican Island from Manila – a distance of 289 kilometres – in an 18-seat, twin-engine Turboprop, landing on Amanpulo’s private airstrip. Flight time is approximately one hour, and private charters can be arranged. Solar-powered buggies allow guests to move around the island at their convenience. 1716
  • 10. AMANPULO Overlooked by the Clubhouse,Amanpulo’s 30-metre swimming pool lies at the heart of the resort’s recreational facilities,mirroring the Sulu Sea with its aqua tiles. Bordered by two bougainvillea trellises, there are also three spacious open-air salas situated aroundthepoolwhichfeaturelargemattressesforall-daylounging. The Clubhouse houses a Library stocked with a selection of books, DVDs and CDs; a Boutique and two Galleries specialising in Palawan crafts, Asian antiques, jewellery and beachwear; and Amanpulo’s largest dining venue – the Restaurant. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, the Restaurant serves Asian and Continental cuisine, and extends onto a terrace with views over the pool and the sea towards Manamoc Island.The terrace of the marble-topped Bar which occupies a cosy corner of the Club- house enjoys a similar view. A garden walkway leads down from the swimming pool to the white-sand beach, lined with shade umbrellas and reclining lounge chairs. This is the tranquil setting for Amanpulo’s Beach Club, which specialises in seafood and tapas served at tables on the beach or the elevated wooden terrace. Located on the eastern side of the island, the Lagoon Club offers similar amenities to the Beach Club, but focuses on Vietnamese fare for dinner. Other dining venues include the Windsurf Hut and Picnic Grove which serve authentic wood-oven pizzas and salads – casual, feet-in-the-sand dining at its best. The WestVilla Clubhouse is ideal for private functions and is fully-equipped with theatre and audiovisual equipment. Wireless internet connection can be enjoyed island-wide.

  • 11. Situated on a hillside above the treetops with views of the Sulu Sea, the Aman Spa consists of a series of pavilions. The reception pavilion includes a lounge and spa boutique on the entry level, and a finishing salon on the floor below for mani- cures,pedicures and hair appointments.Three treatment pavilions radiate from this entry point,each housing two treatment rooms. Each treatment room offers a deep-soaking bath tub,washroom, dressing area and steam shower,along with magnificent sea views. Relaxation salas are situated next to two of the three pavilions and are a tranquil place to rest quietly after a treatment. Lying adjacent to the reception pavilion is the Pilates studio which offers Allegro Reformers and other Pilates-specific equip- ment. Across the path and set into the other side of the hill is a three-storey pavilion with south-facing windows overlooking Manamoc Island. The top floor houses an airy gymnasium with state-of-the-art equipment,while an external staircase leads to the yoga studio. The lower floor houses two private wet-area suites, each featuring a steam room, cold plunge pool and outdoor relaxation veranda tucked into the tree canopy. A short distance from the Aman Spa is the yoga retreat for outdoor sessions, just metres from the beach.

  • 12. Amanpulo offers a host of outdoor activities and is an island ideally suited to nature lovers. A walk on the beach around the island’s 51/2-kilometre circumference takes about 90 minutes,and there are a number of bush paths and two modest hills to explore. From their heights at high tide, baby sharks chasing baitfish are sometimes seen in the shallows at Pamalican’s southern tip.Guests can also explore the island by bike, and four floodlit tennis courts are available. It is in and on the water however, that Amanpulo truly comes into its own. Adjacent to the Beach Club, the Sea Sports Hut offers a variety of water sports equipment including windsurfers, kayaks and snorkelling equipment.The Kawayan Bar (below) is a bamboo raft that floats just offshore, providing the ideal spot for lounging in the sun or snorkelling the reef below. The Dive Centre is located on the northwest side of the island and provides access to the region’s exceptional dive sites for novice and experienced divers alike. The brilliant blue waters of the Sulu Sea are superb cruising grounds. Amanpulo keeps a variety of boats for island hopping, fishing and lazy-day sailing. ACTIVITIES & EXPERIENCES PLACES OF INTEREST • Manamoc Island: Across from Pamalican, this island offers excellent snorkelling and beautiful views from the top of Mt. English – at 220 metres the highest point on the island. Amanpulo maintains the Mangrove Hut on Manamoc – the ideal venue for a picnic. WILDLIFE • Bird watching: white-breasted wood swallows, kingfishers, black- naped orioles, sea eagles, egrets and two dozen other species make their seasonal home on Pamalican. • Turtle hatching: Pamalican is a nesting site for green and hawks- bill turtles. Every year from March until October, females lay their eggs on the beach at night. The WWF has trained Amanpulo staff to tag turtles and monitor the laying process before transferring the eggs to a hatchery located at the Windsurf Hut. Whenever baby turtles are hatching, Amanpulo guests are invited to watch their release back into the sea. TRAVEL TIPS 2322
