The District! The Best Boutique Hotel in Boracay

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!
