Friday’s Puerto Galera: Privacy and Peace of Mind
Relax and feel like you’re on a secluded island when you stay at Friday’s Puerto Galera.
One of the resort town’s recently-opened resorts, Friday’s sits on its own island on Muelle Bay, called Boquete Island. The sister property of Friday’s Boracay, it gives you the premier island destination feel you get at Boracay without having to fly all the way to Aklan.
It’s still in its soft opening, but it’s already a promising property. They have 32 well-appointed rooms that exude a Filipino vibe with all the perks of modern life, all with a view of the sea. All of their rooms use cogon-thatch, bamboo, and capiz shells.
Facilities at Friday’s Puerto Galera are top-notch, even if they’re but a few. They have their own 120-seater restaurant with an outdoor bar and grill, a swimming pool, and a business center.
Friday’s is also great for weddings, with Boquete Island giving your special day the perfect atmosphere — a secluded, quiet location that’s away from all the sounds of the mainland.
Diving enthusiasts need not venture away from the resort as they have their own PADI-certified dive facility. The waters surrounding the island belong to Muelle Bay, listed as one of the most beautiful bays in the world and is declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve by the International Coordinating Council of the Man and the Biosphere Programme. This, combined with its eco-friendly push, make it one of the best resorts in Puerto Galera to date.
