A new hub of seaside living and recreation is rising in the tourist island of Panglao in Bohol with the soon-to-open Bellemar Lifestyle Center, a four-hectare project of Bellevue Hotels and Resorts.
Literally meaning “beautiful sea,” it is set to open in the first quarter of 2021 and will exude architectural aesthetics reflective of Bohol’s prominent Spanish heritage.
For its first phase, it will have nine commercial pavilions housing a diverse range of local and international food and beverage and retail brands, technology, amusement, services, health, and wellness establishments, as well as government offices. It will also host a mall and a 2,000 sq. m. supermarket, the first in Panglao.
The second phase will include Bellevue’s fifth property, further expanding the reach of the hotel group’s signature world-class Filipino hospitality.
Located near the popular Alona white sand beach and Panglao town proper, the development seeks to bridge the commercial gap in a market that has yet to have a commercial center by providing activities throughout the day.
Bellemar will be the group’s second property in Panglao, which is situated near Bellevue Resort Bohol, the first five-star resort in the tourist island and recipient of the prestigious Asean Green Resort Award (2016 to 2018) and the Department of Tourism’s Anahaw Zero Carbon Resorts for Sustainable Tourism Awards.
Panglao municipal mayor Leonila Montero welcomed the development, saying the project will further boost the town as the tourist capital of the province, being host to the new eco-friendly international airport, luxury beach resorts, gourmet restaurants, scuba diving spots, and other attractions.
