The Other Side Of Boracay

I've been to Boracay six times already and until now, I still never get tired of its powdery white sands, turquoise waters and beautiful sunsets. Boracay has been known as an island that's far yet too close to Manila's crowd. I always go there during the crowded Labor Day Week with my friends but sometimes we tend to forget to appreciate it simply as a beautiful island. Last week, I got a chance to experience Boracay in another point of view.

Let me start off with Skyjet. It's my first time to fly with this airline and for me, it's the fastest way to Caticlan- it only took us 35 quick minutes from Manila. Skyjet also flies to Busuanga, Balesin and Basco with a free baggage check in allocation of 10 kilos, complimentary snacks  and my favorite, comfortable legroom!

Playing captain with @chaocampoo haha!

Where we stayed:
Rieseling Boracay Beach Resort

Rieseling is located in Bulabog beach, away from the usual Boracay scene where the crowd is. I love how this resort is in the island but in a different way- promoting both comfort and privacy. This beachfront resort is dynamically designed to reflect our heritage.

View from my room.
"Home away from home." is what this resort is all about because of its relaxing ambience adding up Bolabog Beach's majestic view right in front of you anytime of the day. 

Don't worry if you miss the noise and crowd because White Beach is just few minute-walk away. So wether you're traveling with friends or family, Rieseling Boracay Beach Resort offers something for everyone with ample opportunities for fun, romance and adventure.

One of the remarkable experiences that I've recently had in Boracay is learning to swim like a mermaid. All thanks to Philippine Mermaid Swimming Academy

After the tiring yet fun afternoon, we headed to Mandala Spa and Resort Villas for some well-deserved relaxation. The only spa destination in Boracay offers romantic spa holidays and award-winning spa therapies.

It is recognized globally as one of Asia's finest and eco-friendly spa resorts because of their signature spa treatments for lasting holistic wellness including Watsu therapy that delivers one to the deepest state of relaxed consciousness with healing benefits mind, emotion, physically as well as spiritual. 

Lastly, mouth watering dishes were served to us at Villa Contessa before I left the island for Hong Kong. I love how this place is overlooking Bolabog Beach.

So there goes my short Boracay trip last week! It was so far my favorite experience in the island :)
