  • Rooms

This beachfront hotel has four types of rooms. These include the Deluxe Rooms, Premier Rooms, Premier Beach View Rooms, and Premier Room with Direct Pool Access. The interior is designed with wooden elements and neutral tones to invoke a sense of space and calmness. Their rooms are also equipped with the latest trend in resort living, so don’t you worry about bringing any home appliances or purchasing data roaming as your necessities and more will be supplied. The room and bed size depends on the type of room you would prefer.

Don’t let the Henann’s Crystal Sands Resort’s modern coastal Filipino interior fool you as it serves modern international coastal cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. If you’re coming with your family or a group of friends, you all might enjoy your meal and each other more if you go for their lunch and dinner buffet! Their prices range from 520 to 980 Philippine Pesos ($10 to $20) depending on what time of day and if you pay one at least one day ahead of your reservation.

  • In-Room Dining

If going down to the restaurant isn’t as flattering as it seems to be in your situation, then you can simply dine in the comforts of your bedroom for your convenience. What’s more is that the dishes have the same quality as a fine dining restaurant downstairs.

  • Swimming Pool

This resort has three state-of-the-art swimming pools—as if the sprawling beach in front of it isn’t enough. Two of the pools are on the ground level side by side that have a view of the resort facade and grounds. The Sky pool, however, is absolutely the better of the three. It is located at the second level of the resort with a sunken pool bar and a view of the beach and the sunset. Imagine soaking in a pool with a view of a beach right in front of you like a total boss!

Earning its reputation for elegance with a touch of Filipino heritage, Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa is a hidden treasure. To get to this 12-hectare resort, you will have to take a private boat ride; it truly hits different because of a refreshing feel of getting away from the heaps of people. Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa, otherwise known as “The Shang” to locals, values peace and solitude. Let’s get down to what this secret paradise has to offer.

  • Rooms

The Shang has 219 rooms in total, 36 of which are villas. The villas have five classifications: Treehouse, Pool, Ocean, Beach, and Presidential. For families who can afford such, villas are ideal because they are more spacious and have a private pool of their own. For the budget-savers, the rooms are of excellent quality as well.

  • Dining

If you have eaten in a Manila-famous Shangri-La restaurant, you know what to expect of their food—a delicious mix of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, and other Asian cuisine served fresh and tastes are on-point! Breakfast and lunch are best for a few bites of sushi, some miso soup, Chinese dumplings, spring rolls—you name it! Don’t get me wrong, there are Western choices, too, like pita, hummus and croissants. Dinner experiences in the Shang are more intimate. The subtle sound of beach waves hitting the shore, the candles swaying to the mood, and the smell of barbeque make up the best dinner night.

  • Activities

Not only that The Shang reserves a high regard for serenity and peace; well, that’s not all. This resort also provides a long list of activities, including: paddle boarding, diving, banana boating, parasailing, jet skiing, guided snorkelling, canoeing, wakeboarding, waterskiing, sailing, kiteboarding, tennis, yoga, tai chi, and of course, the spa.
