Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa Offers a Luxurious Escape from the Metro
If you’re looking for Boracay’s best, look no further than Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa.
Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa remains today as the island’s most sought-after 5-star property. Guests of this luxury resort are treated like royalty on the northern tip of Boracay. The resort spans 12 hectares and has 219 rooms, 36 of which are either villas or suites.
Shangri-La also has two private beachfronts and an infinity pool, comprehensive leisure facilities, as well as dining options that would make hotels in Manila green with envy.
The luxury starts upon arrival. A hotel representative will be waiting for you at Caticlan Airport, where you will be escorted to a waiting van which will take you to their private lounge. They have an exclusive jetty port area where you will be taken directly to the resort.

A favorite among couples is their Tree House Villas (starts at P36,900/night). These two-storey, 216-square-meter structures give guests a perfect view of the sea regardless if you’re in the bedroom or out on the private balcony.
The balcony is particularly popular thanks to its al fresco Jacuzzi tub and daybeds, a great escape from Boracay’s crowds.
There’s no need to take a 15-minute tricycle to the town itself to enjoy some of the best food in Boracay. Shangri-La has four dining options within the property. Vintana serves international cuisine in buffet and ala carte menus, while Cielo lets you experience al fresco dining in the cabanas surrounding the swimming pool area.
Want something more romantic? Head for Sirena, where you can enjoy seafood at its freshest and finest, cooked by the resort’s most seasoned chefs, all while you enjoy scenic cliff-side views. For an even more intimate dining experience, dine in the treetops at Rima, where you can enjoy international cuisine at what is probably the island’s most elegant dining spot.
So for a luxurious stay in Boracay, visit Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa.
