Living in Singapore is both hectic and intense. As an owner of a digital agency and lifestyle and beauty platforms that spans across South East Asia, it can get pretty crazy with long days. So when I had the opportunity to stay at a classy island resort, a stone throw away from one of the best beaches in the world, I did not hesitate to take up the offer to stay at the Boracay Mandarin, who hosted my stay.

Situated at the beachfront of Station 2 in the Boracay Island of Philippines, this resort boasts a span of 52 rooms and suites. Its design offers a modern  design that enthrals its residents and visitors with the essence of elegant living in a tropical island setting.


The top attractions in Boracay Island are just a mere few minutes away from the hotel. The D’Mall, Boracay Island’s signature shopping area, along with the D’Talipapa, the go-to place for all your local findings and goodies, are just a few steps away. Other attractions that are easily accessible include the Boat Station, the White Beach, and the Boracay’s Tourist Centre.


Meals are an absolute delight, because if indulging in the myriad of Italian food at Don Vito Ristorante Italiano, an Italian restaurant housed within the island hotel which is regarded as one of the Philippines Best Restaurants in 2011.

Services and facilities are aplenty, with the island hotel offering traditional Filipino Hilot, which is an ancient Filipino art of healing that is sure to give guests a unique experience overlooking the turquoise colours of the ocean in front of you.
