The SPIDER HOUSE Boracay Sunset Session! (A REVIEW)

Bora 2

Spider House Boracay used to be one of the island's best-kept secrets, but through word-of-mouth, the place has become very popular. It used to be just a family residence, but tourists kept stumbling upon the place, so the owners decided to open it to the public.

The resort is located at Diniwid Beach, a 30-minute walk from White Beach. It is a far cry from the busy Station 1 of Boracay; this place is meant for relaxation. Most vacationers come here to enjoy a different view of the Boracay sunset.

Here’s what we loved at Spider House…

HOBBIT TAVERN: Dining with the Happiest Hobbits in Boracay!

SNY03661

Hobbit Tavern is a specialty restaurant serving a wide array of international dishes at D'Mall in Boracay. Formerly known as The Hobbit House, it is now under the management of Freddie and Karen Elizalde, and Virgilio and Jeanette Sacdalan of Boracay Kelana Food Corp.

The Hobbit Tavern is most popular for their "Hobbit" waiters, based on the popular characters from J.R.R. Tolkien’s "Lord of the Rings." Most of these hobbits have been working at the tavern for years already and have a good grasp of attending to customers' requests, and are always ready to pose for a picture or two with the guests.

We tried their bestsellers and here's what we loved…

LANTERNA Boracay: Private Home Dining with the Island’s Best Italian Chef! (REVIEW)

Two Awesome Day at The Lind Boracay -102.jpg

LANTERNA is the bed & breakfast and private restaurant of Italian Chef Luigi and his wife Gladis Barbolla on the island of Boracay. Chef Luigi was actually one of the first Italians to settle in Boracay in the early 80’s and is regarded to this day as one of the island’s best chefs in his native cuisine. The private home dining restaurant serves Italian home cooking with everything made from scratch using sustainable ingredients. 

It is considered as a best kept secret among locals and their guests because of its simple yet authentic Boracay Island experience, from the ambiance to the food and island hospitality.

If you’re not staying in Laterna, you can still organize a private home dining for a group of 8-10 people. Here’s what to expect…

SUBO BORACAY: Have you tried Reconstructed Filipino Food by Chef Jian Sacdalan?!

oap-subo-9522

SUBO is a Filipino restaurant serving reconstructed Filipino food by Chef-Owner Jian Sacdalan, located along Calle Remedios in Station 3, Boracay. Former chef Sunny de Ocampo may have moved on to other projects, but the Subo concept lives on in the island.

The design and interiors are unlike any of the restaurants I’ve seen in Boracay. It’s not your typical kanin sa kaldero-sabaw sa palayok kind of Filipino restaurant. Subo takes inspiration from well-known Filipino dishes and serves them in not-so-familiar ways.

Here’s what to expect at Subo Boracay…

SUNNY SIDE CAFÉ BORACAY: Best All-Day Breakfast on the Island?!

Sunny Side Café is located along the white beach of Station 3 Boracay. Famous for their all-day breakfast menu, they specialize in comfort food and contemporary breakfast dishes that are never boring!

We love their concept of twisting classic breakfast favorites such as their Ube & Cereal Milk Pancakes, Bacon and Mango Grilled Cheese, and Sunny Side Café Champorado (made with Malagos Chocolate and topped with caramel ice cream, mango, and candied bacon).

They are the only restaurant on the island serving specialty coffee. The dishes are all made from scratch–from their bacon, chorizo, and soups, to their bread and pastries that are freshly-baked in-house, every day!

Here’s what to expect at Sunny Side Café…

The Tirta Spa Difference

Tirta Spa-32

What is the difference between a P250 Massage on the white sands beach of Bora and a P4,000 Massage in Tirta Spa in Boracay?

This debate went on and on in my mind. But the practical side of my brain is already losing the debate to the adventurous part who is yearning for a new spa experience in Boracay. Unfortunately, the debate happened when I was already in the main reception of Tirta Spa. At that time, all of my senses are now excited with the serenity and peacefulness of the place. Meeting the lovely owner, En Calvert, just fueled my desire to experience the unique spa packages that I have not seen even in Mandala Spa. It is the irrational side of me that won finally in the end because I can’t resist how awesome this place is.

Let me share with you the Tirta Spa difference in Boracay…
