MANILA – A resort in the Philippines was recognized by the Financial Times as it released a list of best beach hotels in the world.
Called “Pink Sand 2017,” the list was divided into five categories: top luxury beach resorts, favorite remote resorts, best destinations for the family, top spots for design lovers, and UK’s finest beach getaways.
Amanpulo, a five-star resort in Palawan, was included in FT’s top luxury beach resorts and is the only Philippine entry in the list.
“This is the place to live out luxury desert island fantasies,” James Jayasundera of Ampersand Travel was quoted as saying.
Other properties mentioned in FT’s top luxury beach resorts lineup came from Seychelles, France, Fiji, Italy, Maldives, Zanzibar, South Africa and Australia.
The Pink Sand 2017 list is based on choices made by a panel of travel industry experts.
