Pamilican Island, Philippines

This resort describes itself as ‘blissfully marooned in the middle of the sea,’ offering the best in secluded beach getaways. Its gorgeous villas sit right on the beach, and wellness facilities are at the guests disposal, as well as diving and other aquatic activities. They wanted a lobby library to engage their guests.

In the lobby library we selected a number of hardbacks from authors like Vivienne Westwood, Homer and Paul Theroux. The general themes of the collection where escape, style, adventure and of course, sense of place. We contributed to the sense of place with titles like Ellen Macarthur’s book on sailing and Ben Marcus’ ‘Leaving the Sea Stories.’ We also included titles on food and wine, money, art and some great beach reads.
