The Shangri-La Boracay Resort and Spa is nice little haven of solitude and serenity in a world where it's hard to get away from the constant activity of the urban lifestyle. Boracay is everything the city is not: quiet, calm, pristine. Its 183 guest rooms and 36 villas are just what the doctor ordered if he demanded that you take a long vacation on sandy beaches with your favorite cocktail in hand. If he did that, we're trading doctors. The Boracay Resort comes with its very own tranquil spa village, a complex of buildings set up to relax your mind and pamper your body. Your taste buds can get in on the action as well at Rima Restaurant or Sirena for gourmet Italian and fresh seafood. Two separate beach coves ensure that there will always be a quiet place on the beach for you, even if the annoying uncle you had to bring along wants to come, too. Just send him to the other side; we won't tell your mother. The Shangri-La Boracay Resort and Spa is everything you dream of when you imagine a world of opalescent beaches and azure waters, only this time, it's real.
