Amara By Ayala Land

Amara is a seaside residential community project developed by Ayala Land.

This residential community is located in an island in Cebu. The vision for creating this residential development is to provide an idyllic, resort-inspired way of living for residents who enjoy living among nature, especially in a waterfront property. In Amara, not only will residents enjoy resort-like living but also the amenities and facilities you would expect to find in a modern housing development. You can therefore enjoy the tranquil nature of a sea-side community while ensuring a comfortable living setup.

The name Amara was derived from a Spanish word that refer to the mooring rope that is used to anchor ships into a port. This is a symbol to the way of life that Ayala Land hopes for future residents to enjoy in this seaside community – providing a safe haven for you and your family.

Cebu has always been popular as a tourist destination with beautiful beaches and islands. Hence, the choice to build the Amara project in Cebu was a strategic decision for Ayala Land. They are hoping to capitalize on the natural beauty of the Cebu islands to build a seaside paradise that you can call home. The residents of Amara will no longer seek the escape of a tropical paradise because with this development, paradise could also mean home.

Aside from the project development plan, Amara exploits the natural beauty of the surrounding areas. A 100-year old lighthouse is one of the most distinctive features within the island. It serves as a guiding light at night while also providing a rustic vibe to the master-planned community. There are only 24 lighthouse communities in the world and Amara is one of them.

Amara, a premier project for Ayala Land, sits on a 46-hectare property. It is located in Barangay Catarman in Liloan, Cebu. The residential community development is located approximately 18 kilometers from Cebu city. Thus, it provides an abode for tranquility and recreation that is far from the hustle and bustle of the city life. While it is a bit secluded in location, this is considered a landmark residential project in the island of Cebu as it carries the heritage and prestige of the country’s premier real estate developer, Ayala Land.

Ayala Land is a top real estate development firm in the Philippines. It is part of the Ayala Corporation and is known for developing residential properties, shopping centers, hotels, and corporate buildings. If there is one thing that Ayala Land has been known for, it is the commitment to deliver Grade A construction standards that not only meet the highest construction standards but also contemporary architectural styles. Future residents and investors of Amara can attest to that.

There were 112 lots available at that time with an average of 424 square meters per lot at PhP 6,604 per square meter.

Amara - Location & Vicinity

Amara is located in Barangay Carmen, Liloan, Cebu, approximately three kilometers southeast of the Liloan municipal town proper and around 18 km north of Cebu City.

One of the biggest selling points for the Amara development by Ayala Land in Cebu is the location. This a tranquil, sea side neighborhood that has everything you could ask for in a waterfront community. Barangay Catarman in Liloan, where the Amara development is, is bordered by the Camotes Sea coastline on both the north and east. Meanwhile, it sits on a jutting portion of eastern Cebu Island.

This residential community is roughly 3 kilometers located southeast of the municipal town proper in Liloan. From Cebu City, you must travel 18 kilometers north. But if you travel via the newly opened Cansaga Bridge, the total travel time from Cebu City proper to Amara is more or less 20 minutes. This makes the residential development secluded but still highly accessible. The famed Bagacay Lighthouse is located on the eastern coastline and right next to the Amara development. Hence, this provides an idyllic touch to a seaside development that offers stunning views of the beach.

Liloan in Cebu is a first income class municipality with a population of over 118,000. The name for this town was derived from a spot known as “Silot” along the coastline. This spot is responsible for the formation of a whirlpool that is formed due to how the water ebbs and flows on the bay. In Cebuano term, this phenomenon is called “lilo”. Hence, the town has been given the name “Lilo-an”, which means the place where the lilo forms.

Liloan was once part of the municipality of Mandaue until it was established as its own parish in 1845. Nowadays, there are 14 barangays that comprise Liloan. Barangay Catarman, where Amara is being developed in, is the second most populated out of all 14 barangays. It also has the second highest growth rate in terms of population from 2010 to 2015. Barangay Yati is the most populated barangay in Liloan.

The historic 100-year old lighthouse at Bagacay Point is one of the most important landmarks in Liloan. The Spaniards built this lighthouse in 1857. This 22-meter lighthouse is still being used today, mostly for harnessing solar energy. It is also a National Historic Landmark after being declared by the National Historic Commission of the Philippines in 2004. Hence, the proximity of the lighthouse to Amara development in Cebu creates a beautiful backdrop in this modern development. Aside from the beautiful seaside location, the touch of history provides an interesting detail for the residents of this residential community.

Aside from the lighthouse, there are other notable landmarks in Liloan such as the Liloan Church (formerly the San Fernando Rey Parish Church). This church was also built in the mid-19th century. Meanwhile, locals also love to visit the local market just outside the church especially after every mass. There are plenty of local delicacies that can be enjoyed at the market. Rosquillos is one of these popular delicacies, but so are otap, mamon, and monay. The historic allure and simple way of life combine to making life in this area ideal for families and retirees.
