Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel (Day 1)
A trip to the beach is not only best during the heat of summer days. As long as the sun is up, there are no other objections why you can’t enjoy the beach. In the Philippines, we are known for our astonishing and beautiful beaches. With our 7,100+ islands, beaches are scattered all over. Go to the north, head to the south, swing by the east or west, you’d find water to calm you down. But if you ask most of us, Filipinos, the top of mind beach we think of visiting is Boracay. I can answer “why” by sharing with you my recent out of town trip to the breathtaking island of Boracay.
Boracay has numerous resorts to stay in. You have choices from different stations (1, 2 or 3). For me, station 2 is the most convenient station. Strategically, it is in the middle, which brings you nearer to the restaurants, stores, bars and other famous spots of Boracay. On my last trip to Boracay, I discovered something. Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel, located at Station 2, is actually one of the best options if you are already looking for a resort for your next beach trip.
When we arrived, beautiful people of Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel gave us a warm welcome by handing over a glass of fresh Mango juice. Notice the shell necklaces on the picture. It was their gesture of “welcome’ to give each of us these necklaces. The smiles on their faces made us feel most welcome. I felt “at home”.
Now this is what you call “feel at home”. Jumped on our cozy bed inside our Deluxe Family Room. The room was spacious enough with all the things we need – cable television, fridge, toiletries, bathrobes, slippers, mini bar, beverages like water, coffee and tea, electronic safe and internet access for us internet freaks.
The refreshing view from our room’s balcony. 🙂 Feels good to wake up every morning with this kind of view – the beach and the pool.
Ater checking in, we all went out for a walk. The objective that afternoon was to look for a place to eat.
Boracay beach is simply stunning! I’m becoming more proud to be a Filipino when I see beautiful places like Boracay.
This is just Day 1 of my Boracay trip. Watch out for more! 🙂
*Thank you Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel for the warm and sweet welcome! I owe day 1 of my trip to you guys 🙂
Pray, Eat and Love.
