The Shangri-La Boracay - Luxury in Paradise

If you've ever stayed in a Shangri-La Hotel anywhere in the world, you know they understand luxury, the Asian way. The Fairmont has their way which is more Western. The Four Seasons, in my opinion, is the closest thing the West has to an Asian luxury hotel chain. The staff at any of the Shangri-La hotels around the world are always the most attentive. They smile. They want to help. And it goes a long way. And in the Philippines, when you're not staying in Makati, fly out to Boracay and stay at the beautiful new Shangri-La Boracay.

The Shangri-La Boracay Resort and Spa is simply one of the finest luxury hotels in the world situated in one of the most beautiful tropical destinations in the world. The Shangri-la Boracay is dramatically situated on a lush hillside within an eco-reserve offering sensational luxury and comfort to its discerning guests. Rich with sprawling grounds and secluded beaches this Boracay luxury resort also boasts of an impressive variety of restaurants and leisure facilities, including a tranquil spa village.

One of the first deluxe Boracay resorts to open on the island of Boracay, which is a 45 minute plane ride from Manila, the Shangri-La's Boracay Resort and Spa brings new levels of luxury to this fabulous tropical destination still unknown to many around the world. The Boracay luxury resort has 219 room, suites and villas in a classic-yet-contemporary style infused with local cultural influences from the Aklan and Iloilo regions.

Located in the northern part of the Boracay's white sand island, the Shang's secluded setting includes 350 metres of pristine beachfront and 12 hectares of grounds that are home to a number of interesting and rare species of wildlife.

The Shang Resort, with its fun-filled Entertainment Centre and child-friendly Adventure Zone, is an ideal vacation spot for families, while Shangri-La's signature CHI, The Spa at Shangri-La is a sanctuary for those desiring to be pampered and indulged.

Boracay is most accessible flying through Caticlan, a 45-minute domestic flight from Manila, with a further 15-minute combined land and sea transfer time between the Caticlan airport and the Resort

To sum it up, the resort is huge and very beautiful. The service is friendly in a way that only the Shangri-La does it and they go out of their way to fix any problems for the hotel guests. If you're truly looking for a resort experience on an island crowded (some say overcrowded with people), the Shangri-La Boracay is where you want to be. If you want the nightlife or Boracay, its a short drive away. If you want total relaxation, all you have to do is step outside and stare at the azure blue waters of Boracay.
