Raving about Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa

9 May

What is the most amazing place stay while visiting Boracay, Philippines? Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa is the place to be, hands down. An hour flight from Manila to Kalibo, then an hour and a half shuttle to Caticlan, and another 15 minute speed boat ride to Shangri-La, this private resort offers the ultimate experience of a lifetime. With everything accessible by a short buggy ride to and from each place on the beautiful property, we couldn’t help but feel pampered in paradise. There were so many amenities that were offered, so many options of activities to keep us entertained, and the access to exclusive beaches makes every guest feel like a Very Important Person. I owe a huge thanks to Jax and her family for the invite and the hook-up for my amazing stay here.

The view from the balcony was breathtaking.



The sunsets and views were stunning, some of the most beautiful I have ever seen.

I never went thirsty. There was a full bar and buko stand accessible from the beach. I also never went hungry. The room was stocked with fresh fruit and replenished daily. There was also I variety of food options.

At Cielo restaurant, I tried the flatbread, an order of the asian rolls, and a lychee martini.

At Sirena seafood restaurant, I had tried the clam chowder, a mussel appetizer, artichoke salad, and the pusit (stuffed squid) with rice.

For room service before leaving the hotel, I had the vegetable lumpia, sinigang with salmon, a mango float (mango, cream and graham crackers), and halo-halo.



Each morning, we woke up to the breakfast buffet, which was second to none, absolutely delicious.

The fitness center was also available to work off all of those amazing breakfasts, and the locker room was equipped with a sauna, steam room, and jacuzzi.

In addition to scuba diving and other water sports, they offered wakeboarding. So much fun!!


What better way to end the trip with a massage at the Chi Spa. An almost two hour massage that ended in being wrapped in banana leaves. I had one of the most amazing, rave-worthy stays at the Shangri-La.

      Thanks! It was hard to take bad photos considering how beautiful Boracay is. I know you would love the Shangri-La. The villas have a private butler and is great for honeymooners/couples. Totally your style.
