“A sanctuary tucked away from the bustle of downtown Boracay”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We wanted a self contained property suited to a family of four for a two week getaway on Boracay Island. Not only did Villa Ananda satisfy that need, but it came with extra, appreciated features most notably a pool, sizeable and stylish cabana, and two on site staff to help with household affairs and tourist activities. Perhaps what struck us the most about this property was how much more stunning and roomy it was as compared to the photographs online - positively breathtaking and idyllic.

The only criticism we have is that the villa is located in a type of easement that hosts a number of holiday villas and some of our neighbours during our stay had a penchant for partying until sunrise and drowning in horrendous house and electronica music. Unideal circumstances when searching for peace and relaxation in such visually pleasant and comfortable surroundings.

While we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Ananda, it was a fair stroll to the beach along a street often submerged under water and a sight that is underwhelming when compared to White Beach. Also I would not recommend Boracay Island for a relaxed beach getaway with a young family - awash with tourists and touters, blanched by environmental degradation, seriously overpriced, and more doof doof music and light displays than a Las Vegas night club!

“Amazing”
Reviewed 11 February 2015 for a stay in October 2014

We (group of 3) stayed at Ananda villa for 2 weeks and it was one of best holidays ever. Everything was smooth, the communication with the owner prior to booking extensively – she really ran the extra mile for me and never got tired to answer all my questions! The villa is super-big, very tasteful interior, you can feel the owner’s love for decoration. Staff was great also: friendly, helpful and very welcoming. I quite enjoyed the secluded atmosphere of the whole property as it gave me peace and perfect relaxation – especially returning from bustling D’Mall or White Beach – that was a nice contrast to experience in Boracay…. I hope I will be back! Highly recommended, a true insiders tip!

“One of our best memories of stay in Asia !”

Villa Ananda is a very comfortable home where we spent a couple of weeks during August 2014. What a wonderful stay we had in this place !
First of all, the location is perfect : it is right near the quiet Diniwid beach, and within walking distance from White Beach on a path that goes along the sea.his place is also perfect to spend quiet moments, sunbathing by the pool or taking a nap even when the tourist season is at its highest... During our holidays, we went for dinner in the surroundings in plenty of delicious restaurants, but we sometimes preferred staying at home where the staff cooked delightful Filipino dishes for us .
We highly appreciated the warm welcome from the owners, and the kindness of the staff, they were always discreet but very attentive towards our comfort and the cleanliness of the house.
This house is very luminous, with spacious rooms, modern bathrooms, a full equipped kitchen, well maintained gardens with a massage bed, a pool which is highly appreciated when it is really warm, airy terraces where you can enjoy your meals or relax away from the sun with air that comes to rustle the pearl shell chandelier… A house and a lifestyle that reminded us our previous Balinese experience.
This experience remains one of our best memories of stay in Asia !
