Atremaru Jungle Retreat
A leafy green oasis swaying in the gentle tropical breeze, Atremaru Resort is a complete disconnection from technology and modern life. As we approached the entrance along a winding dirt road, the trappings of our daily grind in the western world are immediately detached from our beings, and what awaits us is a world of peace for the mind, body and soul.
Atremaru is an incredible natural resort, designed and built on the foundations of environmental sustainability. Clever engineering and thoughtful architecture mean that Atremaru is able to leave no environmental footprint. Solar panels provide power, and rainwater catchment systems supply all that is needed. The resort is staffed by a dedicated team of people from the local community, ensuring social and environmental sustainability. This is the kind of business the world needs more of.
The grounds surrounding Atremaru are peaceful and lush. The wind swirls around the tree tops as you sit high on the hillside watching tropical birds fly by. The local flora and fauna bring a sense of peace and comfort, and the relaxing hum of the jungle sings you to sleep at night. Each treehouse is designed with simplicity and function in mind, each with a wrap-around terrace that makes outdoor living very appealing. You’ll find everything you need for your stay, including drinking water and tea and coffee on the terrace. Numerous hammocks and chairs offer a variety of places to relax with a book, or to share special moments with friends and family.
The shade of the trees and the gentle sea breeze keep you comfortable through the day, but should the temperature spike you can always retreat to the rainwater swimming pool. Large and well shaded, you can spend the day going between the water and the pool side without having to worry about the intense midday sun.
If you choose to go a little further afield, you’ll discover one of the most serene beaches anywhere in the Philippines…
Follow the foot paths down the hill and you’ll find yourself at a fork in the path, a subtle sign points you in the right direction. Passing some grazing cows, rice paddies and local homes, and you’ll come to the final narrow sandy path. The lush greenery opens up to the beach. Calm and tranquil, without a soul in sight, this is what dreams are made of. We spent hours here enjoying the warm waters and soaking up the sunshine. Islands in the distance and fluffy clouds are the perfect back drop for your dream vacation.
Returning to the resort, you’ll feel like you’ve had a truly special experience. A stop at the restaurant for some delicious food, and you’re ready to wrap up the day. The meals are tasty and home-cooked, with local and western favourites. As the sun sets through the trees and the night draws in, head back to your treehouse by torch light and soak up the sounds of the jungle as it truly comes to life. Your treehouse is now a cosy retreat with warm lighting and a cooling fan, setting you up for a peaceful nights rest until you wake to watch the sunrise in the morning.
Mornings at Atremaru are equally magical. Beginning the day with a healthy breakfast will get you set up for another day of adventure or relaxation. If you wish to venture out around the island, rental scooters are available on site and offer a convenient and fun way to get around. With endless hidden beaches and viewpoints, and many villages to explore, there’s enough to keep you busy for as long as you can keep yourself away from the serenity of Atremaru.
