Hello again, Shangri-La's Boracay Resort and Spa! 128571

I haven't been able to stay here for a full two or three nights. I always just end up staying here for a night to cap off the short stay in the island. It surely is a sweet ending. I think it really is best to save this for last on your itinerary on Boracay. I'm sure arrival experience will also be completely different, but the departure experience has always been consistent for me. 128571

After a night or parties at stations 2 and 3, we headed to this resort via their complimentary shuttle van from D'Mall. It's very convenient for those who want to indulge but still keep a strict budget, like me. The resort is far away from the noisy party reputation of the island, which is why it is the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate after days and night of drinking and bad hangovers. 128569

Their welcome drinks have somehow been upgraded since I was here last year, and it was great. It was pretty to picture, and the beverage itself was very refreshing! The check-in was fast thanks to their awesome staff. We were shown to our room in no time, and I still drop my jaw and sigh a big wow every time I get welcomed to their huge rooms. Their beds were awesome, just like in any other Shangri-La property, consistently the most comfortable hotel bed!

The resort boasts of two beaches in their property. Their sunset here is absolutely breathtaking whether you're on the beach or by he pool. Everything about their recreational facilities is definitely excellent. Plus, they have a complimentary fire dancing show and it was great to watch too! 128568

My friend and I didn't want to leave the resort anymore for dinner so we decided to dine in one of their outlets. I'll write about that experience separately too. It's always an excellent stay here. I will definitely come back! 128571

The chain of Shangri-la Resorts never fails to deliver.

Exemplary service, amenities and food, but of course for a price.

If you plan to go to their Boracay branch, best to stay within the resort premises as it is quite far from the main party island of Boracay. You'd have to wait for their shuttle or pay P150 for a tricycle ride to get to the main beach.

The resort has its own cove, that's why they have a private beach, but the sand is still finer in Station 1.

Staying here won't give you an easy access to all the must eat places in Boracay, like Jonah's, Two Seasons and the ever famous ChoriBurger.

It would be perfect though if you'd like some peace and quite away from the city.

So blessed to back to this place again. The place is as beautiful as it was .... but I just noticed that their service became a bit slow probably because of the no. of people checked in since its a peak season but still it won't seize me from going back here coz of the exclusivity of this place & the cleanliness.... its really a paradise. 127796127796127796

During our visit my mum had hyperacidity and they did look after her like asked if she needs anything, they even gave her some meds and often gave some fruits in our room. Actually I remember last year we visited for my brothers birthday he got a bit feverish when we're abt to head home and they even gave us a basket of fruit and some meds. They would really look after u so u dont have to worry if u get ill during the trip but of course u shouldn't so u can really enjoy ur stay. 128522

Our rooms are still grand as ever127775 and complete with bathroom essentials + a fantastic sea view127749.

The pool and beach are well kept as always. During sunset they have a band 127908 and some fire dancers to entertain. 128131128293

Another thing that I like is that they have different activities everyday for kids, teens and even adults. One of my fave is their fish house making and the snorkeling activity. Check their eco center to know more.

The food was awesome and my ever favorite part is the breakfast buffet at Vintana... delish! 128523
We often eat at Cielo's, which is down in their pool area with a great view of the beach + their food is really good.
They serve some cocktails too but one of the best place to have it is at Solana during sunsets which has the overview of the area.
*You can score two cocktails for the price of one 128521 during their happy hour and if I'm correct its from 7-9pm. 127865127865

Overall our trip was really great. This place will always have a special place in my heart 128155

To be honest i have so much pictures and i have no idea what to choose. The place was breath-taking. And i had the privilege of spending it with my girlfriend. Everything screamed of class. Even the water bottles aesthetic packaging look! Everywhere you go, you feel like you want to have a picture taken. The beach front is exclusive for customers and there's a huge pool as well that doesn't disappoint. To be honest this the most exciting review i ever wrote.

Oh, Shangri-La's Boracay Resort and Spa, where do I even begin?! 100841008410084

Every corner of this place is picture-worthy. 128525 My friends and I stayed in another resort before checking in so we didn't have the usual process of transfers from the airport. Nonetheless, our stay was mind-numbingly perfect!

We arrived via van transfer from D'Mall and was welcomed by a breathtaking view. The driver was even nice enough to stop for a good 2 minutes for us to take photos overlooking the resort facade. 128513

When we got to the lobby, it literally felt like stepping into paradise. Weather forecast said it would be rainy but not a drop came. It's like the Lord really wanted for us to enjoy the sun first, albeit it being cloudy but the feeling of summer was definitely there! 128525

We came in a bit early so we completely understood that the rooms were not yet ready. It was nice of them to give us access to the facilities already even if we still do not have room numbers. Since this was the case, my HS friends immediately dis photo-ops by the beach, while my BF and I went to Chi Spa. 128522 I'll make a separate review just for that.

By 12 noon, we were all back in the lobby and we were approached by the receptionist to inform us that our rooms were ready! It was definitely unexpected since standard check-in time is 2:00pm. We were led to our rooms and we were all in awe!

The rooms were ginormous! They each had super comfortable beds, clean and huge bathrooms and an awesome veranda with beds! It was their simplest room but it was not short of amazing! My BF and I celebrated what one can still consider honeymoon stage. 5 months in our relationship and we were able to come here! It was the perfect way to start a relationship with travels! 128525

The recreational facilities were heavenly! The pools felt like they were not gonna end what with the size of it! The beachfront was serene and beautiful and just lovely to take photos in! Their people was absolutely excellent too! I have no complaints! 128513

I'll make a separate entry just for our breakfast experience! 128521

The next day, we spent the day lounging around till it was time for our speedboat transfers to Caticlan airport. The speedboat experience was such an amazing ride! It was the perfect way to end the trip! 128526

All in all, my stay in this paradise was just amazing! I can't wait to come back! 128525

I've been here twice for a wedding, but never really had a chance to sleep here. The rooms are waaaay expensive for me! But, the ambiance and the place being seclusive makes up for the expensive prices! Also, each villa has a butler!!! 128513

The first wedding I attended here didn't push through with their beach wedding because it rained 9748️ so hard that the reception had to be moved to the ballroom instead. Good contingency plan for Shang Bora but we weren't able to experience the Bora beach wedding then.

My best friend got married here and she had one of the best weddings I've been to! It was my first time to attend a beach wedding and beach reception! Thankfully and fortunately, the weather was cooperating with us so we were able to push through with the beach wedding ceremony and reception! 128026127754

Shangri-la Boracay has done a great job with making sure that everything went well during her special day with the help of the event coordinator of course 128516 Also, they did a good job with the food! 128077🏼

I don't think I'll be able to go back here anytime soon hahaha! Unless, one of my friends gets married here again 128514

This place was exquisite! The view is stunning. The place was quiet because there's only few people staying here even it's Boracay. You will enjoy your stay here.

The food was OK and a bit expensive. You can choose from different restaurant inside the resorts. Just make sure that you will bring enough money.

The room was spacey and the toilet and bath was amazing!

Dreams do come true just believe and this review took me sometime before I finally finish it because I want this review to be a perfect one,

It's been a months of planning, it was supposed to be a Christmas getaway but because Shangri-La Resort & Spa Boracay was so in demand I only got a slot on Feb 14 and so I grab it, it's been a lot of exchange of emails with their reservation agent and they were all accommodating in planning my dream bday vacay. It was a double celebration , Valentines Day with my family together with my mom too.

I paid in full via bank deposit even before we got there because I don't want to use credit card so I paid in cash. Then when the amount is fully paid amounting 25t per night for 5 persons in a Premier Family Seaview Room the next thing we did is to fix our flight details , so I booked a flight going to Kalibo for five persons and send them our flight details . Then they recommend a transport van that will fetch us at Kalibo International Airport and I avail the van for 3,500 per way so it's 7t for two way .

Everything was set already and finally the day that I've been waiting for comes, Feb 14 11am we arrived at Kalibo International Airport. No flight delays , everything was smooth and according to plans, perfect weather when we arrived and the representative of Shangrila Boracay wearing red holding the signage of their hotel is with all big smile waiting for us there 128522 He was patiently waiting for us to get our luggages then assisted us to our van.

We were turnover to the driver of Shangrila and the driver used to live before in Manila so we had a lot of things to talk about while on the road. The van was spacious and we were treated special, mineral water and juice in can were given to us too. He even allowed us to have a stopover lunch at Ramboys. We really enjoyed our lunch there in Aklan. The best liempo ever!128055128061127860 We gave him the excess food because we can't bring it to the resort and gave him money so he could have something for lunch . It was supposed to be 1 and half hour travel to Caticlan Port but he drives fast so we were able to catch on time. We passed by with some zigzag and rocky roads and the ride was so worth it.

Finally we got to the Shangrila Mabuhay Caticlan Airport and assisted us with our luggages. Tgo of thing Shangrila has it's own jetty pour for their guests could have a relaxing space for waiting. It is like a hotel and most of the people that day were foreigners and I think were the only Filipino at the lounge. Then we were given wet towels to refresh ourselves and gave us drinks also. I can feel the good service of Shangrila, every move was treated like a royalty . There was a fast wifi connection too so I was able to post pics before we got into the boat . Before we left the lounge there were guests coming out and I saw the Concert Queen herself Pops Fernandez. She was wearing hat, and her Prada sunglasses. She was seated beside me and her shades exactly look like mine hahaha!128526 we got the same taste haha and I approach her if I could take pictures with her and she nicely said yes and I'm one lucky girl 9786128077128247 I had a souvenir photo with her yey! She even said have fun and enjoy and I was really happy she was so nice9786

The Diwata boat finally arrived and staffs wearing white assisted each and everyone to get inside the boat . Then we were given life vest for safety purposes. It was a 20 minutes boat ride and it was a smooth sailing ride. I enjoy every minute of it looking all the scenic views of the beautiful Boracay Island.

Finally we were able to arrived at Shangrila Boracay duck station and the staffs were all waiting for us and the Ati-Atihan keeps the drum rolling to give us a heart warming welcome sound. I really feel the special treatment of the Resort to their guests! Shangrila Boracay stands out on this one! Then we had picture taking with the Ati- Atihan and the General Manager was there and he welcomed is dearly and he was aware that I'm gonna celebrate my bday there, that was touching , and introduced himself and gave us calling card in case we need anything we can contact him, that's an excellent service.

Then we were ride a buggy going to the main lobby, I was impressed of the property of Shangrila Boracay, it was very huge so you really need a buggy ride here which is available 24 hours. Then the lobby was very huge! They have many sofa sets there for the guests while waiting for their rooms to get fixed. They were all accommodating in fixing our reservation , I gave 5t deposit for incidental charges which is required. After a few minutes they gave us our room key and a map and orient us about the place. The reservation agent assigned to us accompanied us up to the room.

The room was really nice and spacious , it has a nice view of the beach front and has a private bed on the balcony where you can rest if you just want to stay on your room. It was a two Queen size bed , the bathroom was really huge too, it was really a Paradise here,

The exact word that I can give for Shangrila Boracay Resort & Spa is that it was such a Paradise that everyone dream of! My dream turns to reality . They have the best facilities , good food and excellent service.

Aside from the wonderful room that we have, Shangri-La has two private beach to choose from. The sand was color white , and the beach is not crowded so privacy is something you'll appreciate here, there were two or three pools there and an Infinity pool.

For the restaurants, I was lucky I was able to try majority of them like Vintana were we had our breakfast buffet the following day , Sirena where hubby and I had a romantic vday cocktails with a perfect view of the sea, and Cielo where we had lunch before we go back to Manila.

If you have kids definitely they won't get bored because they have entertainment zone they can play billiards, playstation , foosball and basketball and many more .

Wifi connection is working up to the beach so if your hook into Internet you'll appreciate this place. I've got to buy souvenirs at Regalo Boutique,magnet and a mug made of Mt. Pinatubo ashes. They have gym, salon, etc name it they have it!

And lastly they offer free shuttle ride if you want to visit the white beach just like what we did. Dropped of place was at D'mall. I was impressed where they have a certain spot there waiting for all the guests of Shangrila Boracay, here in Paradise you'll feel you are a VIP.

Thanks to Shaidi because the night we got back at our room after we had a tour at the White Beach, he send me a birthday cake 127874 and a birthday note , Shaidi was the generals manager , he was so kind not only to me but to every guests who stayed there. Shangrila Boracay was indeed a 5 star hotel in Boracay where you feel special and you'll wish you'll never go home the moment you stay here.

I am very much satisfied with my stay here, a memorable 35th bday celebration at Paradise! Good Job Shangrila Boracay Resort & Spa 1108811088110881108811088️ You deserve a 5 stars from me 128077

Flashback Friday back to May 2010 to be exact. Booked a 4D 3N vacation trip package during the travel expo at SMX months before and this turned out to be one of the best vacation trips ever.
A month before our trip, my wife read in a thread in GirlTalk about Shangri-La' s day tour package for P2,500 per person (kids were still small and free of charge) and we decided to try it out.
The package includes free playtime at their huge playgym, free lunch buffet at Vintana, we got to swim in their pool and experience the beautiful sunset at Solana.
It was a very memorable experience for the whole family!!!

We keep coming back here because...

The service here is exceptional, view here is really beautiful, and it's less crowded.

So if you really want a place to relax and unwind, this is the best place in boracay. And if u want to visit the main beach of boracay (station 1-3) they have a free shuttle which can drop you off at "d'mall" which is found in station 2.

Another good thing with this place is their security. This place is well secured they can tract people that are check-in here and people that are not.

They also have game room for teens or adults and play room for the lil kids. With big pools and their own secluded beach.

Every penny is well spent!

Overall service here was awesome!!!!

I've been to Boracay more than 20 times already since 1990's staying in different hotels and resorts from cheapest to the most expensive, until the Shangri-la opened. So it was only this New Year 2013 that we decided to try out what is supposedly the best on the island. And to think we went during the New Years Peak season, that meant paying the highest prices for the 2 rooms we occupied.

From the time you get off the plane in Caticlan and arrive in the baggage area, someone from the property is there to assist and facilitate your immediate departure from the small airport. Only Shangrila and Discovery Shores have staff inside while the rest are all outside waiting in the arrival area. From this point on, the extra attention to you and your comfort kicks in with the exclusive van and speedboat transfer direct to the resort's pier. Staff warmly welcome and assist you to your accommodations and brief you on the resort. It is exclusive, beautiful, fabulously decorated and designed using local materials and touches and the staff are all alert attentive and helpful. Down to the bottles of water they use (which minimizes the use and waste of plastic bottles which all other resorts do on the island) that espouses tier environmental care, it was worth the extra money you pay for. The only draw back for us was the deep drop in the sea in their private beach and the current and waves that come with the area. Even as a fit swimmer, I thought it was too much and therefore we opted to take the daily shuttle to the main beach instead. The perfect place specially do those looking for pampering and utmost privacy.

Home away from home. This place will make it seem you're in your own private island. First class all the way. As soon as you get to the airport you sell the Shangrila experience. From the staff, food, amenities, accommodations to the minor details such as smiles all around. This place is the place to be. Once you stay at the Shang, you'll never want to stay anywhere else. 128522

My stay at this hotel elevated my entire Boracay experience to a whole new level. This place magnifies the beauty of the island 100x and more!

Excellent service from the airport to the lounges to the speedboat and anywhere and everywhere the entire resort.

Rooms are spacious, very comfortable and the amenities are complete. Requests are granted in a jiffy.

Shuttles are provided if you wanna leave the resort and go to the main beach. Buggies are available if you're not up to walking around the place.

We mostly had the beach to ourselves and the views are amazing and totally relaxing. No one here to bother you as you soak everything in.

It's expansive and yes, expensive but totally worth it. I never wanted to leave. Saving up for my next stay here!

Perfect down time with family and friends!

Thought I should start reviewing hotels and resorts for Looloo so my first attempt goes to the best resort and hotel in the Philippines, IMO-- Shangri-La Boracay!

A night there will cost you an arm and a leg and two nights, almost your head. Haha! But definitely worth it. 128076

Let me give you some reasons why:
1. Luxury from plane to resort. Personal bag carriers, your own luxury van, private Caticlan port waiting area, and cold towels and hot tea served at every stop.128134

2. Speedboat that only takes 10-15 minutes to the island, available every 30 mins.128676

3. Luxury van anywhere you go in the island every 30 minutes.128654

4. The interior design is mind-blowing! There's a piece of art everywhere.128511

5. The view of the sunset is amazeballs. Enough said! 127749

6. The pools are amazing. For some reason it's always just the right temperature! They have like 10 pools with different designs and architecture. Reminiscent of Bali.127946

7. They have several beach coves which you can have all to yourself. Plus you get a nice rattan bag, VMV Armada SPF and towels everywhere you go.127940

8. Stayed for drinks at our friends' villa which had it's own infinity pool with the view of the beach and sunset. Just wow!

9. The restaurants we're all superb and foodporn levels 127865

Boracay is beautiful but Shangri-la is a whole different experience. During our stay, we barely went to the main beach! I didn't even think of partying or water activities because I wanted to make the most out of our stay. So if you book there, just go out for the Boracay non-negotiables like Jonah's shakes, choriburger or calamansi muffins but everything else, you can do without.
