Bluewater Panglao’s Aplaya restaurant’s wood architecture
Aplaya is Bluewater Panglao’s main dining area and it is a stunning structure built at an elevated portion and facing the sea. Like the Pavilion of its south Cebu property, the Sumilon Bluewater Island Resort, it’s inspired by a traditional hut but compared to the latter, is even bigger and elongated. It’s because of the bigger land area where the Panglao resort sits compared to what is available in Sumilon.

The structure has beams and posts of cement cladded with a wood finish. Each end is rounded. The ceiling is finished with stems of a species of bamboo while the roof is made of cogon grass. Massive cylindrical lamps hang at the radial center at both ends. The buffet area is at one end while most of the remaining space is filled with dining tables and chairs. At night, it’s a beautiful sight as the big lanterns cast a warm glow.
