The DISCOVERY SHORES Boracay Difference! (Photo Essay) @DiscoveryShores





by Abigail Javellana

Discovery Shores Boracay

Discovery Shores Boracay is a five-star resort situated in one of the world’s most celebrated beaches--Boracay Island, Philippines. Located in the exclusive White Beach Station 1, the beachfront hotel offers guests privacy and a quiet environment that is different from the other resorts in Boracay.

The award-winning, 87-room hotel is consistently listed in Travel & Leisure’s World’s Best Hotels and is a 2015 winner of the World Luxury Hotel Awards.

We love coming back to Discovery Shores for their “Service That’s All Heart” as well as the excellent facilities that loyal customers rave about.

Discovery Shores Boracay

You are warmly welcomed with some snacks & drinks upon your arrival.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

Their pandan juice is quite refreshing, especially after walking in the summer heat.

 

THE BEACHFRONT

Discovery Shores Boracay

What's a trip to Boracay without experiencing one of the “Top Ten Beaches in the World” according to CNN?

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

The White Beach is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, or trying water sports like parasailing.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

Spend a day playing on Discovery Shore's wide beachfront with its distinct powdery fine white sand and crystalline turquoise waters.

I love the personal butlers that arrange your lounge bed, give you free towels, and even look after your personal belongings when you take a dip.



THE ROOMS

Discovery Shores Boracay

The rooms make you feel like you're on a staycation! The resort combines modern architecture and design with traditional features, creating a very inviting and comfortable balance.

The views from the bedrooms are my favorite, with a full height window that lets resort guests make the most of them.

The owners love art, so iconic paintings are in each room of the Discovery properties.

 

Junior Suite

Discovery Shores Boracay

We stayed at the Junior Suite, which is their most standard room. The room perfectly fits three people.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

As part of their signature warm greeting, you get a beach bag complete with skin care products to protect you from the sun and mosquitoes...

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

...as well as fresh tropical sweets to satisfy your cravings!

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

The standard rooms are about 40-45 sqm. They are furnished with one king size bed (or two queen size beds) and an extra day bed that's perfect for lounging and accommodating a third guest.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

Each room is complete with basic toiletries (shampoo, soap, conditioner, toothbrush).

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

The bathrooms are big, with a full glass wall overlooking a scenic rock garden.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

I love the complimentary signature foot wash!

 

One Bedroom Suite

Discovery Shores Boracay

The 65-sqm One-Bedroom Suite includes a spacious living area, a bar, and a separate bedroom with two queen size beds.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

The L-shaped sofa in the living area doubles as a sleeping space for two additional guests.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

There's a bathtub too!

 
Two-Bedroom Suite Premier

Discovery Shores Boracay

Their most luxurious room is the Two-Bedroom Suite complete with an outdoor private jacuzzi overlooking an amazing view of the white beach and fiery sunset of Boracay.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

Boasting 120 sqm of interior space, the two-level suite has the same features as the Two-Bedroom Suites...

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

...but with private bedrooms located separately--one on the first level, and the other on the mezzanine level.

 


THE POOL

Besides the busy beach, a visit to the Discovery Shores pool is a must! It's an ideal place for the gang and family to hang out.

Discovery Shores Boracay
Located on the ground level, guests can enjoy the jacuzzi, poolside bar, and butlers armed with complimentary towels, treats, and even mist to help cool you off from the summer heat.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay
There's also a kiddie level area that's shallow and safe for kids!

There area complimentary pastries, juices, and treats by the poolside bar--perfect after a tiring day in the pool.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

Loving the inflatable toys that help make for the perfect dronefie!

 

BUTLER PARADE

Discovery Shores only gets better with their butler parade service every 4 pm by the pool side and beachfront. They come armed with pastries, treats, and wet towels to pamper the guests.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

They even have mist and cucumber slices to freshen you up.

I also love how the staff greets you by name.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

Wondering what to do and where to go? The staff has got you covered and can act as your concierge! Beyond their magnificent beachfront, adventures await you. If you want to find the best pizza, shake, or night club in Boracay, the staff will teach you which direction of Boracay to go.

 

BREAKFAST AT SANDS

Discovery Shores Boracay

Spend your mornings greeted by a spectacular view of the ocean!

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

We love their healthy breakfast offerings, especially their smoked salmon, mangoes, hakaw, bacon, and unlimited supply of Yakult!

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

Sands offers a wide array of breakfast selections, including American breakfast with fresh fruits, eggs, bacon, waffles, pancakes, and jams.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

They cook bacon in two-ways--floppy and crispy.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

The salad section with fresh greens, cold cuts, cheese, and smoked salmon.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

Head over to their Chinese section offering hakaw (shrimp dumplings), steamed vegetables, congee, and pork buns.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

There are also Filipino breakfast favorites such as tapa, adobo, tocino, and garlic rice. 

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

Don't forget to grab freshly baked pandesal from the roving servers.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

You should also watch out for their main dishes such as the Pork Sisig Roulade...

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

...and the pan fried tanigue (wahoo fish) in steak sauce.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

They also have special fresh juice concoctions that change daily.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

A trip to the Visayas region won't be complete without sweet mangoes!

 

THE SANDBOX

Discovery Shores Boracay

The Sandbox is Discovery's complimentary day care center where kids aged 0-12 can play with various stuffed toys, board games, and video games!

There are also different daily activities like painting shirts, Filipino games, and baking cookies!

 

SUNSET SHINDIG

Discovery Shores Boracay

White sand, pristine waters, and a dramatic sunset all make for the perfect scene in this tropical haven. Advantageous to the resort is their beachfront that offers a front row seat to the best sunset in the world!

Discovery is one of the best places to have a mojito, especially during this time!

 

Two Awesome Day at The Lind Boracay -88.jpg

I love lounging on their beach beds while using their fast internet and people watching.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay 2017-73.jpg

The lychee, mango, and calamansi mojito are their signature concoctions that guests come and look for.

A traditional take on the mojito using Philippine lemon (calamansi), the acidity comes from both the lime and calamansi. The calamansi gives the mojito a sweeter note.


TERRA WELLNESS SPA

Discovery Shores Experience-122.jpg

I tried their signature massage "Terra’s Touch", a deep relaxing massage that combines graceful gliding strokes that are said to relieve tension and aid in blood circulation.

 

Discovery Shores Experience-119.jpg

I loved their welcome drink and foot ritual before the treatment. You have the option to choose the blended therapeutic oil that best suits you.

The therapist was very professional, polite, and knowledgeable. I enjoyed her massage--it was very relaxing and made me doze off for a few minutes. After the massage, we were given hot towels and offered spicy ginger tea. I felt very rejuvenated after the treatment.

 

Discovery Shores Boracay

We love Discovery Shores Boracay! Staying here doesn't feel like your a tourist at all. You're treated as a VIP in a hospitable Filipino's home.

It's a timeless masterpiece along the pristine white sand beaches of Boracay. The food choices, rooms, amenities, excellent service, quiet beachfront, and fantastic view of the sunset are the reasons we keep coming back.

Although there will be new hotels coming in with better amenities, Discovery Shores Boracay will always have the best service--genuine Filipino hospitality that is the signature of their brand.

P.S. The best time to visit Discovery Shores is during the New Year when they host the most extravagant fireworks display in the whole of Boracay.
