Amanpulo Island Hotels and Resorts, Palawan Island
Lying between the latitudes five to twenty-one degrees north, the Philippines archipelago comprises more than 7,000 islands sprinkled across the westernmost rim of the Pacific Ocean. The islands are actually the tips of half-submerged mountain ranges, part of a great cordillera extending from Indonesia to Japan. Amanpulo is located on the private island of Pamalican, in the Cuyo group, about 360km south-west of Manila. Seven square kilometres of reef surround the island. Beyond are sandbanks and a channel where whales, dolphins and sea cows have been glimpsed. At its widest point, the 5.5km island is only 500m across.
More than a hundred dialects are spoken in the Philippines. The official languages are English and Tagalog, the national language. English is widely spoken by Filipinos and the language commonly used for business.
The Philippine currency is the peso, which is divided into 100 centavos. Bank notes are issued in denominations of 10, 20, 50, 100, 500 and 1,000.
Visitors from several countries do not require a special visa for the Philippines, with a 21-day stay granted upon arrival, provided they have valid onward tickets. Passports should be valid for at least six months from the date of entry. Please check with the Philippine embassy or consulate in your area for more information.
At Amanpulo a resident nurse or doctor is on call 24 hours a day. No vaccination is required unless you come from a cholera or yellow fever infected region, in which case a certificate of vaccination is required. Pamalican is a malaria free island.
Electricity is 220 volts/ 60 cycles. The Philippines time zone is plus eight hours GMT. Loose and casual clothing, ideally of cotton or natural fibre, is advisable.
