Boracay In Style

There's no better way to take time-out from a roller coaster business year than to  recharge one's emotionally-weary batteries and unwind in Shangri-La's Boracay Resort and Spa... Call it impeccable timing, as we won it in a raffle (graci Edsa Shangri-La!) 3 months prior (2-nights stay in a deluxe room with daily buffet breakfast AND airfare for 2 via Sea Air)... Oh, did I mention that this is my first time in the island as well??!

The service and amenities we experienced were top-class; As soon as we landed in Caticlan Airport we were efficiently whisked off to Shangri-La's private lounge at the port, where welcome drinks were immediately served.  A few minutes later we rode their plush speedboat which ferried us "in-style" to the resort proper.

Once you enter the lobby, I kid you not when I say that you feel "transported" to a foreign place like the Bahamas or Maldives - Powdery White Sand, lush greeneries, and crystal clear aquamarine sea... So much so that despite the wet-wet weather during our 2-nights stay, we still managed to make the most out of this blow-out treat... There's just tons of things to do in the resort (not to mention the award-winning dining places), water activity or otherwise!

A priceless family bonding experience it was.... The only setback is being able to topple this experience the next time around.

Now back to the daily grind... hopefully with a better outlook and outcome! Holiday Cheers to all!!!


  1. Wow! The place looks amazing! Anyone and everyone would truly feel relaxed and at peace in that resort. The sceneries look serene and beautiful! Hope it got you rested and recharged for reality! :) haha!

  2. i live in boracay but i havent been at the insides of shangri-la. but nevertheless this made me realize that the island i live in is truly breathtaking.


    1. Thank you Abou for taking time to comment. Before setting foot on your beautiful island I had a misconception that it was all hype. I guess you simply need to get your hands & feet wet (literally and figuratively) to fall madly in love with Boracay! Now it's an annual necessity for me and my family - Shangri-la optional... Cheers!
