This holiday season, get away from it all and hie off to Pure Shores Villa, your own exclusive paradise in Bohol. 
 Pure Shores infinity pool and jacuzzi
The four- bedroom villa has introduced the Bali, Indonesia villa rental concept. Unlike the usual resort or hotel where you share its facilities and rooms with complete strangers, the concept involves renting an entire place.

Pure Shores Villa is a four- bedroom villa that showcases contemporary Asian architecture and modern amenities within a sprawling 4,500 square meter property that overlooks the magnificent panoramic view of Guindulman Bay.

A few leisurely paces from the villa is the inviting infinity pool and jacuzzi that seemed to have been carved out from the scenic promontory that overlooks the marine sanctuary. To the left is the pool cabana which is perfect for sipping your favorite drinks, enjoying a massage, getting a manicure or catching the spectacular sunsets.

To the right of the pool is the dining cabana which can also be utilized for a special event. As we enjoyed a hearty lunch by the cabana, visions of unique and memorable events and occasions were already swirling in my very fertile mind. 

From engagement parties to exclusive weddings, from chi chi events and to intimate celebrations, Pure Shores is the place to be where the verdant & lush surroundings, turquoise waters and azure skies heighten & amplify your sensory experiences. 

Truly where heaven and earth meet in Bohol! Just the perfect place especially for your all'aperto parties or gatherings.

If you're the type who puts a premium on privacy and exclusivity, then Pure Shores is for you.

Here's the stunning aerial video of Pure Shores Villa:
