Bellevue Resort Panglao’s lobby
One thing that I really like about the Bellevue Resort in Panglao other than the great beach and food? It’s how Philippine indigenous materials and motifs are woven into the design of the interiors. Its a veritable showcase of how rich Philippine artistry is.
Like the callado transom ventilation that is usually found in old houses as incorporated in the design of the Lamian Restaurant, so is the banig (native woven mat) used as ceiling decor for most of the main lobby and reception areas.
But it doesn’t stop there. From the beautiful cylindrical lamps that resemble native woven vessels to, again the callado motif lit from the back, sepia murals, beautiful dark wood and stone with interesting textures… And the gorgeous circles of the front desk area.
Going in Bellevue Resort is such a stunning visual experience. It’s a hip contemporary Filipino design.
