Let me tell you about my stay at 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐠𝐫𝐢𝐥𝐚 𝐁𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐚𝐲!
𝐃𝐚𝐲 𝟏: After a quick flight from Manila to Caticlan, the hotel staff picked me and the hubby up from the airport carrying a sign with my name clearly in view. They then escorted us to the hotel van and were driven to the resort’s welcome lounge. Unlike other resorts found on the island, Shangri-La has its own departure area, boat and dock at the Caticlan Port! Talk about exclusivity!
As we stepped into the lounge, the welcoming staff offered drinks and refreshing towels as we wait for our ride to the hotel! In no time, the resort’s private speedboat was ready! Regular resorts only have “bancas“ or small motor boat for sea transfers, Shang has a luxurious boat! Fancy schmancy feels as we cruise around Boracay’s white beaches!
Upon arrival at Shangri-La’s boat jetty, we were greeted by upbeat music and dances by the welcoming team with their matchy matchy carnival outfits! When we walked out the sea pavilion, there was a golf buggy waiting to bring us to the hotel’s lobby for check-in! What a grand entrance! Totally stress-free arrival process!
We were walked to our room and I went straight to my balcony! The view was so calming. I can just relax in my day bed the whole day!
I was just enjoying my private veranda and the sweeping sea views the whole afternoon. And just before I went to bed that night, I was treated with a romantic bubble bath courtesy of the hotel! This was so sweet of them! By the way, their bathroom has his and hers faucet and they use L’Occitane products! Loved it!
