“Perfect get-away destination!”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

The moment we arrived from the airport, nothing comes short from experiencing The Shangri-la!! We were simply awed by the service and hospitality! The resort itself was lovely and pure bliss! The speed boat experience was a first and buggy rides were fun as we were a group of 16! Free shuttle rides to and from station 2 made it easier for us to experience the night life of the island. Wifi was allover the resort, may it be in the room, pool, beach... everywhere! Overall we love the experience! Looking forward to coming back!

The resort itself is stunning. Lovely rooms, fantastic pools, beautiful sandy private beach with crystal clear water. The transfer to the hotel from Caticlan by speedboat was a highlight.

The position of the resort is a real plus - far enough from town to be away from the noise, but close enough by free shuttle to be make the activities and restaurants accessible.

The included breakfast was comprehensive with a good variety of western and asian dishes of high quality.

But why oh why do resorts like this feel the need to rip off guests on the price of meals and activities, especially when there so many other options nearby. I would be more than happy to pay a premium for the convenience of booking watersport activities at the hotel, for example, but when you are paying multiples of the rate charged in town I would rather make the the short trip to town, and I suspect most other guests do likewise.

Apart from that it was a memorable stay and I would recommend the resort.

This resort came highly recommended so we booked for 6 nights for part of our Honeymoon. We were absolutely amazed by this resort. We stayed in a tree top villa and although this was expensive it was worth every dollar. From the moment we were greeted at the airport until we were dropped off a week later we were treated like royalty.
The facilities at the resort are perfect, the staff are nothing short of brilliant and the resort itself is perfectly situated at the end of the peninsular. We spent some time in Boracay town (Station 1 and 2) which is easy with the free shuttle bus provided by Shangrila.
Although we stayed over Easter (Holy Week) and the resort was almost at capacity it did not feel like it which made our time there even more special.

A bit more detail:

Accommodation - Although we stayed in a tree top villa I am sure that the standard rooms are very nice too and we would consider staying there next time. As you will see on the website the tree top villas are split level with the bedroom downstairs and living room/terrace upstairs. Little things like complimentary still and sparking water, free buggy service on demand and a local mobile phone with your butlers number stored make this level of accommodation worth the extra cost. Our butler Suzette was fantastic and went to extra lengths to make sure our honeymoon was special like running baths for us and scattering rose petals through the room each night. Nothing was too hard to organise including external tours for which the Shangrila did not charge us for.

Spa - wow is all we can say; the Spa is the best we have ever experienced. Get there a bit early so you can enjoy the private pool before your massage.

Beach & bar - both beaches are very nice and the service is excellent. Happy hour at the private beach is great with 2 for 1 cocktails - works out at USD $3 - $5 per cocktail which is great considering where you are.

Dining - we ate at the poolside restaurant which is a great casual experience; the Italian restaurant is very nice too and reasonably priced. Our best dinner was a private dinner on the beach which was just an amazing experience. Highly recommend for anyone visiting.

Diving - we chose to book through a dive centre in Boracay rather than the resort because of the cost. Although diving direct from the resort would be easier we saved about 1000 pesos per person by booking through a dive centre instead.Something to consider. The diving in around Boracay is very good although a little crowded while we were there - probably due to the Easter weekend.

Other - if you are in Boracay and like cliff diving book a day trip out to Ariels Point; really fun experience.


In summary A beautiful experience, we will be back.

Room Tip: If you can stay in a tree top villa. It is very private and has a breathtaking view of the bay and t...

We stayed 4nights in Seaview #5*7 (how can i forget the suite #). Was hesitant at first because of price & location; far from the famous white beach. But during our stay (Apr 28-May2) i never had a problem going back & forth to the town/ D Mall as their free shuttle is every 30min till 5pm & every hour until 1am. Buffet breakfast exceeded my expectations..so many options.Friendly Restaurant staff too. Beach bar serves happy hour too! i opted for Mojito (strong&yummy) We only tried one restaurant Sirena, quality food, we chose a balcony/treetop seating. Expensive but worth it. Infinity pool & sunset..spectacular!
Blissful respite. Luxe & relaxing accommodations. Warm & friendly staff, always anticipating my needs. We will go back for sure...

Room Tip: we stayed @ seaview..see pics:)

There's not much I want to say as you can guess how good this place is by the hotel's pictures and name, and they all lived up to the reality and more. It was fantastic!

You were treated like royalty from the moment you touched down at Catalan airport until departing from there at the end of your trip.

The beach is something else (both, especially their totally exclusive one at the end of the pool).

The grounds (also the setting) are superb and there are a good choice of restaurants and some great places for a drink too.

Our only qualms were apart from the seafood buffet we went to when they had it on the beach as it's location, the other buffets (in the main breakfast area/Vintana restaurant) were a little lacking in different things on offer. Those buffets could have been a little more ample and not have used too much of what you saw at breakfast.

The other tiny gripe was the picture quality of most of the English channels in the room. We made enquires and they had a look but it was a general hotel problem for everybody, their provider. A tiny problem though.

Everything else, does exactly was it says on the tin and would expect for those prices and name. Fabulous!

Room Tip: We stayed in a delux seafood view, on the top floor (6th) overlooking the central lobby complex and...
