Travel | Shangri-la, Boracay Part 1

jenniFamily 5 Comments

As I wrote before, Aryanna and I were invited to two events in Boracay last week. We were excited for this trip as the last time we were together at Boracay was five years ago.

A familiar sight

What was more exiting about this trip was that Tattoo and Fierce Dong booked us at Shangri-la Resort & Spa. Thank you!

It was our first time to stay at the Shangri-la Resort. My husband Tom, who has been to this resort many times for work, gave us the 411 on what to do, where to go, and what restaurants and bars to try.  Ikaw na, Tom ang Guest Relation Officer! Haha!

We were picked up at the airport by the Shangri-la staff and they brought us to their Mabuhay Lounge in Caticlan.

A good start. Welcome drinks and cookies!

We stayed in the Mabuhay Lounge for around 15 minutes to wait for our sosy ride:

Travel in style. Shangri-la Resort’s “Diwata” speedboat.

Aryanna and I were the only passengers in the speedboat. On our way to the resort, the captain/driver of the boat pointed to us Manny Paquiao’s beach house.

I’m curious as to how it looks inside.

PACMAN’s beach house is painted white and with wave-like architecture details.

This is how we roll. Shala!

When you stay at Shangri-la Resort & Spa, you get picked up by a speedboat and get driven around in golf carts.

Another shot of the “Diwata” speedboat.

I tell you, once you ride the speedboat, there’s no turning back! Haha!

Welcome to Shangri-la Resort & Spa!

The lobby overlooking the courtyard

Not your ordinary tree house.

The Lobby Lounge has a sweeping view of the ocean and guests can dine there al fresco.

Doesn’t the view take your breath away?

The room:

Well hello “Marshmallow Palace”!

Le view:


Welcome goodies: halayang ube, maja blanca and cookies. So yummy!

Our spacious balcony

The tech station

Le banyo:

The fashion:

O, di ba? May “fashion” talagang naganap! LOL


Shangri-la Resort & Spa has several infinity pools, two secluded white beaches: Punta Bunga and Banyugan Beach

There are a lot of places to swim in…


enjoy nature…

and breathe in fresh air.

We haven’t been in the water for quite some time so we didn’t waste our time

Dive in!
