The Möven­pick Re­sort and Spa Bo­ra­cay brings to­gether Filipino warmth and Euro­pean lux­ury for an is­land get­away like none other

Philippine Tatler Traveller - - Art Of Luxury -

The Möven­pick Re­sort and Spa of­fers a re­fresh­ing ex­pe­ri­ence that mar­ries the pris­tine na­ture of Bo­ra­cay with ameni­ties that em­body mod­ern lux­ury. Sit­u­ated in the pris­tine Punta Bunga Cove on the north­ern coast of the is­land and 30 min­utes away from the Cat­i­clan air­port, the ho­tel is se­cluded enough to pro­vide rest­ful pri­vacy with­out seem­ing too dis­tant from civil­i­sa­tion.

Each of the 312 well- ap­pointed rooms is de­signed with el­e­gance and sub­lime com­fort in mind as it gives guests op­tions to suit even the most dis­cern­ing tastes. Those opt­ing for the Ju­nior Suites can bask in the sun on the pri­vate out­door bal­cony while en­joy­ing mag­nif­i­cent views of the sea. Those trav­el­ling in groups can re­lax in style in the 143- sqm two- bed­room suites of the ex­clu­sive Sol Ma­rina Beach Club. Even those on top can shed the cares of a hec­tic life­style at the 370- sqm Pres­i­den­tial Villa which has prime ac­cess to the beach as well as its own pri­vate in­fin­ity pool and Jacuzzi.

All non- suite rooms main­tain a luxe touch and are strate­gi­cally built for com­fort and ease and are just a walk away from the sprawl­ing gar­dens, in­fin­ity pool, and sea­side. A third of these of­fer an im­pres­sive and re­fresh­ing view of the sea and hori­zon.

More Than Trop­i­cal Flavours

Six dis­tinct din­ing venues of­fer a range of flavours. Wake up to The Mar­ket’s break­fast buf­fet which fea­tures bread freshly baked in a brick oven. Those seek­ing cool re­fresh­ments

will be pleased with The Café’s sig­na­ture ice cream and halo- halo. More ad­ven­tur­ous ap­petites would ap­pre­ci­ate the fu­sion of Korean and Ja­panese cuisines at Ssäm, along with an ex­cel­lent se­lec­tion of pre­mium sake, shochu, and other spir­its from across the re­gion. Those crav­ing for a rus­tic taste of the Ital­ian coun­try­side can book a ta­ble at La Riviera while those seek­ing a night of fun can play the night away at the Fun Pub. Sun­set watch­ers who want to un­wind at the end of the day can en­joy the balmy breezes as they sip fresh drinks near the wa­ter at the Pool Bar. The Sol Ma­rina Beach Club sets a whole new stan­dard for Bo­ra­cay’s nightlife. Start the night with live mu­sic and ex­cit­ing fire dancers while din­ing on the finest in in­ter­na­tional cui­sine, then dance the night away with some of the world’s best DJs along the beach.

Those want­ing a more laid- back hol­i­day can book any of the sig­na­ture spa treat­ments or at­tend yoga and t’ai chi classes. The more dar­ing, on the other hand, are spoilt for choice with high- im­pact wa­ter sports rang­ing from div­ing to wind surf­ing. Guests may also play the full 18 holes or go horse­back rid­ing at fa­cil­i­ties and green­ery near the ho­tel.

Events are also a breeze to or­gan­ise thanks to Möven­pick’s ex­pert team of res­i­dent event plan­ners who can en­sure that ev­ery­thing from ro­man­tic wed­dings to con­fi­den­tial busi­ness meet­ings go with­out a hitch.
