On Boracay Island, most tourists head for hot spots like White Beach, but go a little further south and you can shelter yourself in the secluded paradise of Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa. Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa lets you maintain a quiet, luxurious home base in the Philippines, but also easy access to the island’s major attractions – White Beach and Bulabog Beach, where you can sun, swim, sail, wind-surf, snorkel, and scuba-dive yourself silly.
Shangri-La provides everything required to pamper you back to life after spending the day exploring the island and ocean. The hotel’s enormous spa features a wide array of slow, careful treatments based on Chinese and native Philippines healing concepts. To get a first-hand feel for the island’s low-key natural attractions, opt for renting mountain bikes from the hotel for a small fee. (Motorized vehicles aren’t allowed on the major beaches, anyway.)
