New Spa Resort in Boracay

The beachfront resort on Boracay island will be designed by Hawaii-based architect firm WATG and the interior design will be headed by well-known Singapore-based designer Dan Bube, who is designing the group's Maldives resort. The resort will reflect a classic yet contemporary style combined with local cultural influences.


All the resort's 170 large guestrooms and 50 deluxe villas, with average floor space of 45 and 90 square metres respectively, will feature ocean views from spacious balconies or porches. Villas will include outdoor plunge pool, shower, whirlpool, pergola for al fresco dining and day bed for relaxation or massage.

The resort's dining and entertainment options will include a poolside bar,lobby lounge, pub, all-day dining coffee shop with outdoor seating and specialty restaurant located on a spectacular promontory offering 360 degree ocean views, with indoor and outdoor seating.

Shangri-La Resort and Spa, Boracay, will provide the largest meeting and banqueting facilities on the island, consisting of a 600-square-metre ballroom and 400 square metres of function rooms. An outdoor wedding pavilion with panoramic views will accommodate 50 persons for weddings or special events.

The resort will feature a 1,350-square-metre CHI spa, Shangri-La's signature spa brand, with treatments based on Chinese and Himalayan healing concepts. Located on a rock peninsula in the ocean and overlooking a private bay,CHI will be a separate spa village complex designed as a sanctuary within the resort.The spa village facilities will include deluxe villas for half or full day use, and smaller suites for hourly treatments. A spa pool will be set within the landscaped garden.

In addition to CHI spa, recreational facilities such as outdoor tennis court, free form swimming pool, health club and marine centre with diving
facilities will also be available.

A one-hour flight south of Manila, Boracay is an ideal tropical vacation destination. The picturesque island has more than 30 beaches,foremost of which is the four-kilometre White Beach with pure white sand, which is widely considered to be among the world's best beaches.

"The resort's prime location, luxurious accommodation, variety of outdoor activities and Shangri-La's unique hospitality, will produce extremely memorable stays for all our guests," said Giovanni Angelini, Shangri-La's
chief executive officer and managing director. "This exciting new addition will strengthen our position as the dominant luxury hotel group in the Philippines and Asia."

Wow, that looks so... Shangri-La. :) Need I say more.

Let me guess... it will have a CHI-Spa just like the newly opened one in Shang Mactan. I'm just not sure which of those parts will be the CHI Spa.

Apart from Shangri-la, I read in the Philippine Star that Four Seasons is also scouting for a location in Boracay.

Whatever happened to the Cebu Hilton?

Another hotel in the works in MM is Marriott (developer is Megaworld) near NAIA T3.

Boracay shouldn't be as developed as Bali and Phuket it is too small of an island compared to Phuket and Bali. It cannot accomodate all those people the island will die.

Really? That's good news, but is it true that they're pushing-thru but with a reduced land area because of the land title issues?

Guys, update on this project, land development has already started. I was informed that the site is far from the usual resorts found in boracay. The resort is said to be all on its own, unlike the others were beach resorts are just stone throw away from each other. But since it is solitary, it will have complete facilities to stand alone.
