We had the best family staycation ever on the island at Crimson Boracay because of its family-friendly foam party, the awesome villas with plunge pools, the food at Azure Beach Cafe and the never boring activities in this sprawling property in Station Zero. Best to just stay and enjoy the resort with the family throughout your stay.

Here’s our guide for your awesome family experience at Crimson Boracay…


First Things First

Crimson Boracay, designed by WATG (Wimberly, Allison, Tong & Goo), makes use of a geometric landscaped architecture that provides ocean views at every angle of the sloping property.

The resort provides direct transfers from Caticlan port to Crimson Boracay in Station One using their own private speed boat service.

You get a warm drumbeat welcome as you take off your shoes, imbibe the Boracay vibe and walk towards your home villa at the resort.

The Villa with Plunge

The villa’s master bedroom, near the main pool and beachfront, overlooks the pool with panoramic ocean views.

The villa has an express check-in service with a dedicated host so your kids could jump into your private dipping pool in no time.

The 85 sqm villa comes with a full bathroom equipped with rain shower, separate toilet, bathtub, two sinks and 32-inch LED TV.

Sometimes, this becomes the living room where the boys hang out while enjoying the bathtub.

There’s plenty of space for an extra bed (up to 2) and the villa is still big enough for a family of 6.

Loved waking up to breakfast by the pool with the boys in the privacy of our plunge pool.

Floating Breakfast

Floating Breakfast (₱4,500++ for 2, ₱8,000 for 2 with Sparkling Wine)

Freshly squeezed orange juice; parma ham and fresh mozzarella cheese; granola and yogurt parfait; foie gras, truffle and egg en cocotte; English muffin, smoked salmon, creamy egg, trout roe, homemade hash browns, brie en croute; croissant: raspberry, chocolate, pistachio; sliced seasonal fruit; coffee or tea.

They provide free high-speed wifi so you can still do content creation work or catch up with some work during your stay.

 


Saturday Foam Party

The highlight of your family stay is the ultimate foam party in Boracay that happens every Saturday 12-3 pm at ₱2,500 nett/person.

We would swim all morning, counting down the hours till the foam party.

The foam party is wholesome—not just for adults but also for kids to enjoy, with a dj or a band performing throughout the session.

The foam is made from organic and coconut material so as not to irritate your eyes, and it’s also okay if you taste it.

Make sure to bring goggles and a waterproof camera for awesome selfies.

I loved playing around with the little ones all throughout the ultimate bubble party.

Enjoy an eat-all-you-can BBQ buffet by the poolside of Azure Beach Cafe with different sausages, grilled meats and party pica-pica.

Once the novelty of the foam wears out, we continue the party on the beach and swim in the cool Boracay waters.

 

Crimson Kid’s Club

There’s a kids room, for kids under 5 years old, where you can entertain and play with the little one.

There’s also a game room with entertainment portal and gameboards where the family can bond in between meals.

 


Where to Eat @ Crimson Boracay

The villa comes with a buffet breakfast at Azure Beach Club or Saffron, exclusively at the indoor and outside front terrace areas from 7:00 am to 10:30 am and a daily complimentary early evening cocktail from 4:00 p.m to 6:00 p.m at Mosaic.

Azure Beach Club (Asian Cuisine)

Azure Cafe

The famed Azure Beach Club comes to Boracay and is set to keep the award-winning standard of a remarkable beach club experience. A sophisticated space on an idyllic beachfront, Azure Beach Club dazzles with its sleek, contemporary design and delicious gourmet bites. An Asian bar and grill that caters to the cosmopolitan, with locals, ex-pats and travelers converging to make the most of great food, drinks and breathtaking views.

Azure Beach Cafe Menu: Appetizer, Salad, Soup, Sandwich | Sushi & Sashimi, Noodles and Rice, Pizza, Tandoori, Dessert | Beverage | Spirits

We would go to Azure Beach Club for a light lunch or dinner on the beach featuring Asian favorites of fresh seafood or high quality meats.

1/2 or Dozen Fresh Oysters

Fresh Oysters (₱530 – 1/2, ₱995 – 1 dozen) with yuzu mignonette.

We do love fresh oysters, and you are assured that what you’re eating is fresh, clean and yummy fat.

Lobster Laksa

Lobster Laksa (₱985) rice noodles, lobster, fish cake, curried coconut gravy, egg

Don’t miss their signature laksa with creamy coconut soup and fresh lobster meat. So good!

Lamb Tandoori

Lamb Tandoori (₱625) lettuce, tomatoes, raita, hot sauce, naan

Azure Beach Cafe is known for their Indian food and Tandoori oven, so make sure to try their shrimp or lamb tandoori options.

Cheese Pizza

Cheese Pizza (₱500) from the wood fire-oven with tomato, yogurt, homemade pioneer, mozzarella

The cheese pizza is something easy that the kids enjoy while on the beach or in the pool area.

Azure Burger

Azure Burger (₱680) grilled pineapple, tomato, lettuce, Cheddar, teriyaki sauce, squid ink brioche bun

For those times you are craving for a signature burger with a thick meaty patty, melted cheddar, grilled pineapple for a tropical feel, all in a black brioche bun.

 

Saffron Cafe (International Cuisine)

Saffron Cafe

Indulge in gustatory delights amidst an idyllic setting for families and friends to commune. Saffron Café is Crimson Resort & Spa Boracay’s all-day dining international buffet restaurant with numerous interactive show kitchen theaters and beverage counters serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Loved the breakfast mornings at Saffron, and we liked to eat inside in the booth tables or the big square table where we can eat together as a family.

The breakfast offers all your Filipino and international favorites—bacon, sausages, tapa, milkfish and everything you usually crave for in the morning.

Our favorites were the dimsum section with hakaw and siomai and the Chinese soup options for breakfast!

 

Mosaic Latin American Grill

Mosaic

Wine and dine with style at Mosaic, arguably home to the most authentic Latin American cuisine in the island. Feel at home with its fun, casual and lively ambiance elegant wooden seating and floor-to-ceiling windows on two sides, allowing the space to flood with natural light while making the most of stunning ocean views.

For something special, check out the casual fine dining steakhouse, Mosaic, for the awesome sunset view and the Latin-inspired interiors.

This is a great place to dress up and celebrate a special milestone or dinner on the last night of your stay.

Signature Wines: Malbec | Red Wine and Rose | Cocktails, Beers, Spirits | Whiskey, Tequila, Rum, Scotch | Juice, Coffee, Tea

It’s hard to get a good bottle of wine on the island but Mosaic has a good selection of Malbec and Red to pair with the steaks.

Hopefully, they have improved the execution of the food and the warm friendly service.

 


Station Zero Sunset Sessions

There are two infinity pool areas that are elevated, perfect for hanging out during sunset sessions.

Loved this area of the pool where the kids can go up and jump down as the parents relax on the pool bed while enjoying the sunset.

We would alternate between the two elevated infinity pools during sunset which is also the perfect time for family portraits.

I loved the elevated sunset view where you could see the sun setting on the horizon and appreciate the Boracay sunset in peace without the crowds.

 


Azure Cafe Beach Dinner

Crimson Boracay has a wide beach area that’s more than the 25 + 5 meters easement rule, and it is one of the very few places where you can enjoy a party or dinner on the beach.

You can have a bbq grill party all night, with attentive and smiling service.

Sometimes you just want a nice chicken kebab or BBQ skewer to pair with the beach setting.

 


Aum Spa

Your villa stay comes with a signature hand massage to entice you to book a full massage at Aum Spa at night.

The best part of our family staycations is when we leave the kids in the villa and get to enjoy peace and relaxation in private.

The masseuses are quite good and this is just what you need to relax yourself from the stress of running after the kids and your skin as well after so many hours under the sun.
