Discovering Discovery Shores Boracay

Honeymooners...many times over...


February 22-24, 2009. Boydee and I took advantage of the super sulit promo of Discovery Shores Boracay. For only P18,887 net per person, one can avail of a 3day-2night stay in Discovery Shores, Boracay inclusive of roundtrip airfares via Seair, a 50minute Qi Massage in Mandala Spa, transfers to and from airport, and daily breakfast at Sands. How can you pass up an opportunity like that?! Normally, a night in Discovery costs $350!

Touted as our mini-honeymoon, Boydee and I excitedly headed off to the Old Domestic airport.
After our 30-minute flight, ~15minute ride to the dock, ~30minute boat ride on a PVC? boat, 30minute ride on an extended golf cart, we arrived Discovery.

Our Junior Suite

At Discovery, there are endless pleasant discoveries. They sure know how to pamper their guests. Little things go a long way. I was really impressed at the tiny details the management thought of in terms of service.

Welcome to Boracay sweets!

I loved... almost everything in the room. Boydee especially loved their shower, so much so that on the first day, he took a shower three times! I loved the personal touches to make us feel welcome. I loved the location and the beach front. I loved the spa serviced by the multi-awarded, world-recognized Mandala Spa. I loved their adobo for breakfast.

I loved the location. I loved the staff who were so warm and accommodating. I loved their welcome foot massage. I loved the free wifi! I loved the experience of staying at Discovery.

How can you NOT feel pampered?
When you go back to your room after a day at the beach,
your bed is turned up to invite you to sleep.
Even the slippers aren't left to chance!

I didn't like the noodle station for breakfast. I didn't like the position of the swimming pool. It was right in the middle of the property. Most of the guests can see the pool, and the swimmers, in their rooms.

Our trip to Boracay was a rediscovery of this beautiful island we've visited quite some time ago. While it had become a tad bit too commercialized for me, I still wouldn't mind going back over and over again. One of the main reason is the beautiful discovery of Discovery Shores... IF they have that package again. Hehe...

Boracay is the number one tourist spot in the Philippines. Lots of tourists love to going back over and over again to this place because of the various resorts that can be found in the region. The first place I've stayed is the ambassador in paradise boracay, and it is indeed a paradise.
