“Nice getaway from the hustle and bustle of the nearby tourist area”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

POSITIVES: Beautiful, uniquely designed property and spacious very generous suites, feels like you are staying in a house. GINORMOUS bathroom and balcony :-). Breakfast service was adequate with a good mix of international/western dishes with your staple Filipino "power breakfast" favorites! Ate dinner at the facility for two out of the three nights, and ate at a resto in Station 2 beach are near D Mall. It is kind of a ways from the main tourist areas which is good and bad, but there is a frequent shuttle bus that goes to and from that is exclusive to Asya guests. If you want to come and go as you please, there are tricycle taxis which I recommend riding at least once during your stay. You can also walk to the DMall/Station 2 area via the beach, but it's a good hike, maybe 30-60 min depending on your pace. Service and courtesy with a smile/greeting everywhere you go on the property. NOTE: There is some construction in the area as they are building more units, but is in no way intrusive of your overall experience.
NEGATIVES: Not too many, but just nitpicking here. The breakfast service we had daily was a little inconsistent, on some days our servers were spot on and on a few occasions, not as attentive, For example most of my table's glasses of water were empty, and no attempt to refill until one of the servers had to be nudged by a supervisor to refill our glasses. I know it's a small detail, but at a resort where good money is being spent, you would expect this. And there was the occasional banter/chit chat behind the counter and laughing which one can construe as unprofessional.
Overall, a great experience and facility, recommend for honeymoon or anniversary couples or families with older children, probably at least 8-10 years old. It's not quite "kiddy enough" and more for the mature crowd as it has no activity center/daycare for kids. There is a decent exercise room with 2 treadmills, 1 elliptical machine, a rack with several dumbbells and a bench/mat area. It would have been nice if the gym room had a view of the ocean (it would be nice if they included moving the fitness center to get a view like this along with their new construction plans).

Miscellaneous note for travelling: I don't recommending flying via Calibo airport. It's a long ride from there to the resort. You will want to fly into and out of Caticlan (trust me). Cebu Pacific seems to have the most consistent service. PAL Express is mixed (that's another story).

Room Tip: Each unit has an upstairs and downstairs suite and arranged in a horeshoe shape all of which are ang...

Reviewed 28 December 2013

I spent 5 days here late December 2013 in the presidential room. Pictures are views and into rentals of room 2001.

Paid approx $500 us a night direct with hotel. Pram season rates.

This is small property and promotes itself in the 4 star market so my comments are minor criticism given the value for money and honest positioning in the star rating.

Overall the property is fantastic and would stand up to any of the luxurious resorts in Asia in terms of location, natural and man made beauty, the pool are is stunning.

The present presidential room we had is huge with a massive bathroom , bedroom balcony and outdoor plunge pool.

It is located on the second story of a two story bungalow. Privacy is good but not total on the balcony. We never felt overlooked however you are we aware of neighbors.

The plunge pool and living areas are completely private, and this room is on the edge of the property so had massive glass windows to "jungle" and outstanding views to the beach.

The bathroom is exceptionally large, largest I have ever seen. , bath, walk in shower, double sink robes and massive round seat in the centre. One downside is toilet is completely open to this massive space. A glass screen would be nice as it is a little to open for the rest of the room.

Resort has one of the most stunning and intimate beaches on Boracay and is away from hawkers and most other tourists even at this busy time.

One down side is as the hotel is so intimate we had two weddings during our stay taking over most of the beach with setup of the function. There is a Separate bay And acres of beach so plenty of options but deck chairs are pushed to the edge ( with most Staked haphazardly leaving you feel a bit secondary to wedding functions market,

Transfers were included and I could not fault this immediate transfer by car and speed boat to the hotel beach. note wear sensible shoes as you pull up on the beach to arrive. We changed hotels so did not use the return service due to availability however staff offered to honour the transfer from our next hotel with only a nominal additional fee without prompting.

The hotel is about ten to 15 minutes from the centre of action and has a free shuttle at designated times or charges 200 peso for a at call transfer. Tricycles , three wheeled taxis are also available and charge 150 peso.

Breakfast was included and is menu based rather then the over indulgent buffet of some asian 5 stars hotels. Plenty of options and excellent service.

We odd not dine for lunch or dinner in the hotel. We did have room service and it was perfectly fine and fast.

At the time of our stay there was some construction of new bungalows away from the beach. We had no disruption from this and they looked closed to begin completed and will be stunning all with large pools but are set back slightly further then the original rooms.

Service overall was excellent friendly and warm at every encounter

For those who like a gym there is room with free weights and good aerobic equipment.. However that's were its stops, no matts and a co creat floor and the only bench is a wooden bench that would be more appropriate in the garden. Also no windows.

Overall fantastic stay with only minor faults they could easily call it 4.5 Star. Rally only lacking in minor details. Highly recommend for couples want to be close but not in the action and to have space to relax not just a room.

Room Tip: 2001 has great views is huge and probably one of the most private

The Good
-The first thing that everyone will notice is the size of the rooms. They are huge. The balconies are huge, the bathrooms are huge.
-There are only 20 suites (even though they're building new suites) so there is quite a bit of privacy and seclusion for those that want it
-The pool is also huge, and I could have lounged there all day just reading a book while listening to music.
-I loved the entire design for the resort.
-They offer a complimentary kayak for guests to use which was hands down my favorite part of the resort. My fiance and I used the kayak to go to D'Mall, grab lunch and a drink, go to Willy's Rock, and then come back to the resort. Though we ended up being badly sunburnt on that day, it was by far the best.
-Happy hour is the longest on the island. It was something like 3pm till 10pm.
-Breakfast was also awesome. I love the Beef Tapas. I could not believe the amount of rice that I was eating for breakfast, but everything was just so good together!

The Bad
-We ran out of shampoo and body wash twice. For some reason housekeeping did not automatically replenish the bottles even though they came and cleaned up twice a day. I ended up having to leave a note by my tip letting them know that we needed new bottles.
-The flies were a problem whenever we had breakfast, but the staff were always quick to improvise and help out.

The Bottom Line
-I'd definitely recommend Asya Premier Suites for those who want some privacy and peace on Boracay. This not to say that you can't get in on all of the party action on the island, but you do have a place to escape when needed. It was the perfect balance for me. There were some minor nuances here and there, but overall, this property is tops.

Quick Tips
-Don't hire the tricycle taxis or take the complimentary shuttle unless you have to. I always found it a much more enjoyable journey back to the property by simply walking on the beach. It's really only about half an hour walk from D'Mall. Walking on the beach definitely beats being cramped on a little tricycle.

Reviewed 26 September 2013

I've travelled to many many countries and stayed in literally hundreds of hotels and resorts and NEVER have I enjoyed a trip as much as my recent visit to Asya Premier Suites. We were lucky enough to stay for 11 days on Boracay and can't wait to return a second time. I could go on and on but here are the highlights.

1. The rooms are huge and the decks are quite spacious as well. Clean, clean, clean.
2. The pool is wonderful! Whether you like to swim laps or just float around in the sun or rain - it's great. Please look at pictures - It's quite beautiful at night and looks a little like the moon. The pool area is so huge that you never feel like you are in other's swimming or sunning space.
3. It's quiet. Boracay has a reputation for having parts of the island that are noisy and busy. Asya is away from the craziness. You can truly relax and enjoy.
4. The staff is perfect. No more to say - they are helpful without hovering. Truly an art and a sign of really good management.
5. They have connections you can trust. If you want to parasail - let them know and they will arrange to have you picked up at the beach and taken to the dock. If you want a sunset cruise, they will arrange it. All extremely reasonable prices - none of the huge markups that you often find with resorts.
6. Happy hour - good prices again and good drinks.
7. Not crowded - there are only a few units so there is never a time that you feel like you are tripping over other guests. We walked to the other stations on the island and everywhere else feels cramped.
8. Private transportation - you are picked up at the airport and driven to a private boat that takes you to a private beach. It's all perfectly timed - no waiting - no hassles.
9. Massage! You can arrange to have 1 or 2 massage tables in your room or on the deck and the cost is very very very cheap. We arranged to have 3 nights of 2 hour massages on the deck during sunset. It doesn't get any better. Less expensive than the many many places on the island and the quality was great.
10. The view - rain or sun (we had both) were truly spectacular.

Other pointers: If you want a great local host to take you on a boat trip or help with water adventures, ask for Freely. Wonderful guy who will go above and beyond and the front desk will connect you to him.

Go to the local wet market (fish market) and pick just about any fish. Take it to one of the restaurants nearby and have them prepare it fresh for you. The local fish are truly amazing.

Ask for a mango shake every day you are there! Breakfast, lunch or by the pool.

Tip: It's quicker to walk along the beach to the other stations if you are up to walking 20-30 minutes. If you take a car or tuk tuk (motorized scooter) it's much longer but quite an adventure.

If you are going to Boracay - this is the place!

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor - better view but all rooms are fantastic.

We stayed a total of 7 nights at the Asya Premier Suites and it was our second stay at this hotel and our 4th trip to Boracay. The primary reasons for returning to this hotel were the accommodations as well as the beach. As far as accommodations is concerned this hotel easily competes with the high-end hotels on the island and if you are looking for seclusion probably delivers the best of what Boracay can offer. The rooms are excellent and extremely spacious - you effectively get what you pay for as relative pricing is on the high-end (in Boracay/Asia) but so is the location ideal for relaxation, beach quality and accommodations. The bar/restaurant areas are laid out well and I agree with previous reviews that the sunsets are spectacular. The hotel has the longest happy hour we have come across anywhere (so far) which invites you to just kick back, relax and enjoy the sunsets from mid afternoon onward. Due to the hotel's location its beach segment is quite secluded and reduces the usual pass through traffic experienced by other beach front hotels in Boracay. The hotel pool is extremely large and offers also lots of areas to lounge throughout the day.

It should be noted the hotel is at the very end of station 3 which offers seclusion but also means that heading towards the middle of the island either requires a walk along the beach or a taxi ride which is quite easy to arrange and is relatively cheap. We've several times walked back from the middle of the island along the beach which is quite nice but does take some time yet it's also easy to grab a bike taxi for a couple of bucks.

The only 'negative' comment I would raise relates to the menu at the hotel which we believe is too narrow and doesn't offer that many choices, especially if you put it into context of pricing of the hotel and general service level (etc). The food quality and presentation is excellent but the choice is limited (especially after a couple of days of stay) which resulted in us leaving the hotel more often than we would have otherwise done to eat out. I am a bit of a stickler for quality hotel food/room service and choice, so this comment may not be shared by everyone but the quantity of selection was certainly a detractor. Service level is great and the staff is doing all they can to make your stay an experience to remember and does so in a non-intrusive manner.

The hotel is best for couples or individuals looking for a completely relaxing (luxury) holiday experience. Less suited for people looking to party into the night which are better off staying closer to the middle of the island.

Stayed for 4 nights in presidential suite, the private transfers from the airport to the ferry terminal then private speedboat to a private cove was amazing, no queuing for the public ferry, gave the stay a great start. I would suggest this is the best place to stay on Boracay in terms of size, although it wasn't peak season, you hardly noticed anybody else at the resort. They are building new two bedroom villas, which was a bit of inconvenience (noise etc), and does mean that I think there will be now more family’s staying there.

The staff were amazing and they all knew our names and greeted us where ever we went. The cocktails and the food were great, and we spent a lot of time just eating and drinking at the resort. The chef was happy to attend to a few special requests as did the bartenders, nothing was too much trouble. The beach is lovely, it’s quite and there are not many non resort guests around. The beach attendants are more than willing to run back and forth to the bar for you, it’s just lovely.


What was hot:
 Amazing Staff
 Airport Pick-up service and speedboat
 Food and Drinks
 Huge Bathroom and Room
 Amazing sunsets
 Perfect white beach

What was cold, and needs attention:
 The bar and service around the pool was mostly empty, was hard to get attention up there, so we always just moved back down to restaurant or beach.

What can’t be easily changed:
 Nothing!

Overall: This place is amazing and worth the extra money, you really do feel relaxed and looked after here.

Would I stay here again: It would be hard to convince me to stay anywhere else, I can’t wait to go back.

Room Tip: Presidential suite is the way to go, especially towards the top of the hill
