Shangri-La Boracay Resort & Spa


Summary

Located within the Visayas Archipelago, Boracay Island was awarded the title of Best Island In The World by international travel magazine Travel & Leisure in 2012. Those that choose to visit this idyllic corner of the Philippines will soon see why, as Boracay’s pristine white sand beaches and dazzling sapphire waters are flawless in their perfection. Shangri-La Boracay Resort & Spa complements the natural beauty of its unique location with sumptuous accommodation and dining options, a dizzying range of activities and amenities, and a level of service so personal that it belies the resort’s status as part of an international chain. Surrounded on all sides by a lush nature reserve and abutting a marine sanctuary, this resort is as much a haven for Boracay’s spectacular flora and fauna as it is for its human guests.

Best time to go

The best time to visit is between January and May when the weather is warm & dry. Typhoon season begins in June and lasts into early December. Holy Week is around Easter where hotels book out months in advance so guests should keep this in mind.
