Amanpulo is an exclusive island-resort on Pamalican Island in Palawan, Philippines. It is owned by 7 Seas Resort, Inc., a joint venture between the Aboitiz, Soriano and the Aman Resorts group. The resort is majority-owned by the Soriano group and the rest by the Aboitiz group and Aman Resorts (the Philippine Constitution does not allow 100% foreign ownership of businesses in the Philippines). The name Amanpulo came from Aman which is Sanskrit for peace and pulo means island in Tagalog. The twinning of the two words result in the coining of "Amanpulo" or "peace island" in reference to the tranquil island of Pamalican.
