“Location and luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2013

If you are looking for some luxury while being close to the happenings in Boracay, there is no better option than The District. Beachfront, great service, delicious breakfast and literally just a few metres away from d’mall. They also have a cocktail lounge with comfortable sofas and an amazing view of the sunset!

Dear Ms. MarianM968,

Warm greetings from The District Boracay, your contemporary boutique beachfront resort in Boracay!

Thank you so much for your positive review about the resort and for recommending The District Boracay to your fellow travelers here on Trip Advisor. We are happy to hear that you had a wonderful time at our bar and restaurant – Star Lounge – as this is exactly what we had hoped for from the very beginning, to provide chillax sunset cocktails to all guests after a day of exhausting activities around the island.

Positive comments such as yours are always an additional treat to all of us, so I will ensure to share your review to my colleagues at the resort. It was our pleasure to be of service to you, and we are excited to welcome you back again on your next visit!

Sincerely,
Vina Mataganas

Nice premier rooms with separate shower and toilet. Surprisingly, the minibar was empty.

Breakfast was mediocre. The District's breakfast have plenty of fresh fruit and salad, but was let down on pastries (worst croissant ever) and bread. Further, they didn't have a toaster.
Excellent fresh watermelon juice but rather slow to serve coffee and tea.

The Italian restaurant at The District Boracay was not very nice. They served OK spaghetti but the calamari was not very tasty. Poor at making drinks, but they serve great fresh juice.

Further, the WiFi was not very stable and the connection speed is very slow.

Otherwise, the general service and management is excellent. Quick and efficient. Finally, The District has prime location in Boracay.

My friends and I just returned from a week-long stay on Boracay and had the most amazing time!

We decided to stay at The District in Station 2 and it was by far the best accommodation available on White Beach. It's brand new (less than 12 months old) and absolutely gorgeous. We stayed in room 301 which had a great view of the pool but also overlooked the rooftop bar with lovely glimpses of the hypnotic blue ocean. It was the perfect room for our stay.

The staff at The District were also incredible! They were extremely friendly and anticipated our every need. We felt very special and well taken care of! Every detail, down to the smallest of things was considered - even leaving small treats with individually named cards at turn-down each night. At breakfast each morning the staff knew my order by heart after the first couple of days and prepared fresh pancakes and eggs for me without me even needing to ask! I was thoroughly impressed by this attention to detail and their desire to make my (our) stay as enjoyable as possible.

After hearing (and seeing online) such amazing things about the Shangri-La, my friends and I decided to take a look one afternoon and stopped for some drinks and something small to eat. While the Shangri-La is extremely lovely, it's quite far removed from where the action is at. The Shangri-La does run a shuttle service into the heart of town but only once per hour and it's still quite a distance to drive.

If you're after a wonderful relaxing holiday, but would still like to have all the options of shopping, water sports, restaurants and amazing fun at your doorstep, The District is definitely the best accommodation available. It's like an oasis amongst the hustle and bustle of White Beach. The rooftop bar and Italian restaurant are second to none with wonderful service and excellent food and drink options. Caruso (Italian restaurant) even has a gas-fired pizza oven which makes the most delicious pizzas! Happy hour at the Star Lounge is also a must as you watch the sun set on another beautiful Boracay day while sipping some of the best prepared cocktails I've ever had!

The only small recommendations I would suggest to the hotel would include putting some umbrellas by the sun beds at the pool and perhaps taking a look at the wi-fi as it was quite slow and would often time-out.

Having said that, I would, without hesitation, absolutely stay here again. Pure paradise!

Room Tip: Room 301 had the perfect blend of pool and ocean views and sleeps up to 3 people with 2 bathrooms/to...

Dear Ms. Mtcarr,

Warm greetings from The District Boracay, your contemporary boutique beachfront resort in Boracay!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review about resort and for the kind compliments to our staff. We are extremely happy that you had a wonderful time at the resort and at our restaurants, and equally delighted to hear of your intent to visit us again in the future!

From the very start, we have always strived to provide the most personalized service to ensure the most comfortable holiday experience for all our guests, and it is heartwarming that our efforts are validated by your positive feedback. I have passed your commendation to my colleagues at the resort, and they are delighted to hear that you noticed, and even took the time to write about your experience!

We are also delighted to hear that the room, food and beverage at our restaurants (Star Lounge and Caruso Ristorante Italiano), views and location of the resort were to your liking. Choosing the location of the resort was of prime importance to the management when it was still being developed, and we couldn’t be happier that all our guests are now enjoying this convenience.

We’ve taken note of your request to add more umbrellas by the sun beds at the pool. We also understand that the Wi-Fi connection on an island setting could be a problem at times, that is why we are already working on improving this (together with our service provider) for the convenience of all our guests. We apologize though for any inconvenience this might have caused you.

Mr. Mtcarr, it was our pleasure to have you at the resort. Looking forward to welcoming you back on your next visit to the island!

Wow I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. We stayed in Boracay for 7 days and hotel hopped to 5 diff hotels. I didn't have high expectations for this hotel since we had checked in to Tides prior to this hotel. Wow we were surprised. They were able to accolade us 4 to stay in the premier suite and arranged 2 single beds in the room. The hotel is brand new so the bathrooms were clean, the pool was nice, and it had a modern feel to it. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Will definitely come back and recommend this hotel to other people!

This review is long overdue. I absolutely loved this hotel. I was so excited about visiting this new property in Boracay. I knew it would be crazy busy because it was busy season for Boracay, but I couldn't wait to stay here.

The hotel is gorgeous and appears to be a small boutique place to stay. The staff were friendly, amazing and extremely quick and efficient. Our room was very clean and spacious with a lovely bed and nice clean bathroom.

The restaurant menu was reasonably priced for white beach. As one would expect from an Italian restaurant, there was a reasonable selection of wines and cocktails, however, we found the prices a bit expensive. But for a beach front accommodation, we expected as much.

Overall it was a great experience and we will return.

We stayed for 6 nights and everything was perfect!
this is the best hotel at Boracay.

I do not recommend you to stay at station1 where is far to the center.

Station 2 is the best location and District is the newest and best one.

We booked the hotel according to the comments from this web site. I highly recommend everybody to stay at this hotel.

rooms are very clean and everything is new.
If you want to have a good service than this is the right place.
Breakfast is nice , especially the omelettes!

they give the towel for the beach. Do not take too much clothes as there is less humidity and also baggage limit is 10 kgs per person at the airport.
weather at Boracay is nice.
they have a free transfer from Caticlan Airport.

Be sure that you will be satisfied!

I came here with my good friend for her birthday in January 2013. We stayed for 5 days. We had a 9hours delay due to the cancellation of our domestic flight frm Cebu to Caticlan. We informed the hotel of the cancellation and they assured us that they will have somebody & transport waiting for us in Caticlan. And true enough!!...When we arrived on Boracay and the hotel, despite the delay, seeing the beach, the hotel, we know it's all worth it. Checking in was smooth, we were welcome with fresh plum juice and the staffs are really friendly. Room were nice and clean and our beds are so comfortable. Our hotel is situated on Station 2 which is convenient to everywhere. Restaurants, pubs, mall, convenient store....
We did alot of activities in Boracay such as Helmet Dive (Hmm... i don't really fancy that, maybe cos i don't like to be underwater or touching the reef and its only 10mins of taking silly pics of us underwater)...we also did Helicopter ride around the island (that was amazing. Our first virgin ride), did the Pub Crawl (that was great, getting to know people, hopping from pub to pub) and also the sunset cruise. You can book all that beforehand at www.myboracayguide.com ...it is actually cheaper than booking with the person on the beach.
Truly sad when it was our last day...Boracay is still a paradise even if it is crowded with people now. So just close one eye and enjoy the moment. Definitely will come back for sure.
