we love love love love this place. When we saw the reviews here and agoda previously, we have our expectations set so high and was excited if the place match what we imagine based from the pics.. and yeah its awesome. the place itself is almost at the top of the hill (feels like greece) and have picturesque view of the sea and beach below. each villa has its own spacious veranda so you do have your own privacy.. you can sunbathe, eat, sing, stargazing at night or whatever you want there. Also i think they only have 10 or less villas so you would rarely see other guests, so serene and home-y feeling. When we were there we just saw a german couple on their way to the market. They have two pools and guests rarely use them so we pretty much have them for ourselves. The view from the pool is amazing as well (especially sunset). The pool area has toilet and shower room so you dont have to rush or so to your villa.
Rooms are colorful and cozy, though the first one we got have ants near the window which they fixed immediately. It was surprising though cause though the ants weren't bothersome, they offered a lot of apologies and transferred/upgraded us to a spacious apartment villa which we think was not necessary hehehe. but yeah we are grateful still and happy to have the apartment villa which is so spacious, (with two bedrooms/toilets, bar, kitchen)
breakfast food is nice as well and they can bring them to your room or veranda or by the garden.. :) just outside the gate, there's an entrance to a nearby private beach (balinghai) which is good to check out too. They have entrance fee of 500 pesos but consumable with sumptuous dishes/drinks. If you want to go to white beach, you can just ask the guard to call the driver who is always on standby to drive you to your destination. Going back, you will need to take a tricycle, fare is 150 only.
Service is great and feels like a family there. When we arrived, we were greeted and welcomed by one staff and we came back in the evening from a swim, we were surprised that one guy (the manager) was calling my boyfriend by his name (so rare) hehe and welcomed us. He will check up on us whenever he's around if we needed something and was helpful with giving tips or offering extra amenities in the villa. He even managed to have a short chat with us knowing that we will checkout the next day and that he wont be in town then.
Overall the stay is unforgettable. Our stay in a paradise like Boracay is an awesome experience already and was glad it was topped up with this wonderful villa. We'll definitely go back :)
