Bohol's Flushing Meadows Resort and Playground

If you want tranquility and solitude in your next island getaway, consider Bohol's Flushing Meadows Resort and Playground located at Panglao Island. It is located about an hour away from tourist-heavy Alona Beach

Panglao is derived from "panggaw," a fishing device. Aside from being a tourism hotspot, Panglao is also a  marine biodiversity center after numerous species of crustaceans and mollusks were discovered around the island in late 2000s. 

Obviously the owner is a tennis freak--Flushing Meadows Corona Park is where the US Open Tennis Tournament has been held since 1978. Wonder no more why the facilities are named after tennis greats, i.e. the Graf Conference Room. 
even though it was raining when we arrived, i was impressed with the place
love the mural adorning the main door
closer look
i wanted to read a book in this corner

i was there for work, and this was my room

flipflops in summery colors
view from my door
golden papayas
what the frack?
geckos! they were ginormous, and everywhere 
from the conference room, to the beach
on the last day of work i woke up early to take some last shots of the resort 
a chapel inside the compound
the restaurant. nearby, obscured, is the pool
yonder looks interesting

crystal clear water--those specks make up a school of tiny fish
because of the rain, we missed having our meals here
money shot
