Even before its rehabilitation, Boracay has always been my favorite island in the Philippines.
I’ve been to this pristine island six times already but I just keep on coming back.
Apart from being the perfect beach getaway because of its breathtaking beach and crystal clear waters, this small island also has practically everything I need—from restos, to bars, to water activities, not to mention the array of hotels you can choose from to make your stay more memorable.
On my sixth sojourn to Boracay, I stayed in this newly renovated contemporary boutique hotel, The District. It’s conveniently located at the beachfront of Station 2 which is about a 5 min walk away from D’mall.
The District, for me, is by far the best modern boutique hotel for vacationers who want to stay at a convenient location without sacrificing their privacy. It has everything that you’ll ever need all in one place.
Join me as I discover what The District has to offer!
Having started as a humble yet revolutionary restaurant chain in Switzerland, Movenpick has since gone on to become one of the world’s most trusted and recognizable brands today. The Swiss chain, which has successfully branched into the hotel and resort business, has prime locations at some of the best destinations in the world.
Boracay is probably one of (if not) the busiest tourist destinations in SE Asia. Having won numerous awards for Best Island in the World, it’s a no brainer to find some of the world’s top resort chains here, carving out a name for themselves in a market that is incredibly competitive.
The world-class resort is perfect for families and anyone wanting to experience everything Boracay has to offer with the added bonus of privacy. Situated at what’s informally known as “Station Zero”, the world-class resort boasts the islands largest pool, cutting edge health and wellness facilities, a number of restaurants and cafes and, to be quite frank, the island’s best pizza!
Plan your next stay at Movenpick Boracay and enjoy the quieter, more family-friendly side of the island.
The Philippines is arguably one of the best travel destinations in all of SE Asia, home to 36,289 km of beautiful coastline which includes some of the worlds most renowned reefs, beaches, and biodiversity. In fact, just this year, Siargao, Boracay, and Palawan islands have been ranked 1st, 2nd, and 3rd (respectfully), as the “Top 5 Islands” in all of Aisa. It’s not surprising then, that these prime locations are alluring to travelers from around the globe, people who want to sample the natural beauty of the Philippines.
