If you like reading things-to-do-before-you-die lists, you’ve probably come across this one piece of advice plenty of times: “Collect experiences, not things.”
As overused as the saying is, it’s true! Because when you’re old and wrinkly, you probably won’t remember all the clothes and shoes you splurged on, but you will reminisce about that one time you lived it up on the beach.
In the Philippines, one of the best places to go chase experiences is Boracay. And if you really want to have the most memorable time *ever* on the island, be sure to book a great hotel.
We know of one resort where guests are treated to the coziest suites, the friendliest service, and the most impeccable food. Trust us when we say that you won’t regret filing a couple of VLs for a few nights here!
Book a room in Discovery Shores to have the most unforgettable experience in Boracay
Back when Discovery Shores Boracay first opened in 2007, the island was an entirely different place. For one, there weren’t a lot of other resorts to compete with at that time. Over the past ten years, a ton of newer establishments have cropped up, but Discovery Shores Boracay remains to be one of the most impressive of the bunch.
Found along Station 1, this stunning beachfront property features 88 suites so luxurious you wouldn’t want to get out of bed. The Junior Suite, roughly 40 to 45 square meters, are equipped with two queen size beds (or one king size bed, depending on what you need).
There’s also an extra day bed in the room that’s comfortable enough for one more person to sleep on.
If you want a bigger space to move around in, there’s the One Bedroom Suite.
At 65 square meters, you get a spacious living room area, a bar, and a separate bedroom with two queen size beds. You can also choose to book the One Bedroom Suite Premier, a 78-square meter loft-type bedroom with a dining area, a balcony, and your very own private jacuzzi.
For those coming with a larger group, you and your crew can hole up in the Two Bedroom Suite. This 120-square meter space is already like a home, complete with a living room, a dining area, a balcony, and two private rooms with their own bathrooms.
But if you want the two rooms to be on separate floors, you can opt for the Two Bedroom Suite Premier, which also happens to have a private deck and a jacuzzi!
As difficult as it will be to leave the comforts of your hotel room, get out of your PJs and head out the door because there are many other things to experience at Discovery Shores Boracay. You can have your troubles massaged away at Terra Wellness, their world-renowned spa.
You can also take a relaxing dip in the pool, a much more peaceful alternative to the crowded beach. You also get a perfect view of Boracay’s famous sunset from the resort so be sure to get your cameras out in time!
For food, you don’t have to go far because Discovery Shores Boracay is a culinary destination in itself. It’s home to mouthwatering concepts like Sands Restaurant where diners can help themselves to themed buffets, and Indigo Restaurant which plates up coastal dishes and serves the best wine the island has to offer.
If you’re lounging by the pool, you can get yourself some refreshments like a mojito or a margarita from Sandbar!
