While you may be in the middle of the Philippines, and less than an hour from Manila’s 12 million residents, a few hours on this tropical island will leave you feeling like you’re in the middle of nowhere. Boracay is a small island with a permanent population of just 12,000. Its 10 square kilometers (six square miles) are home to countless pristine beaches, a lively nightlife and some of the best watersports in South East Asia. In 2012 Boracay was named the best island in the world by a popular travel magazine.
Most of Boracay’s 1,000,000 annual visitors come to the island for the dry season between November and April. This is the ideal time for swimming and water sports, as the beaches remain calm. The months between May and October are therefore much quieter and more affordable, as many hotels and tour operators have seasonal prices. Visitors are advised to check weather warnings, as typhoons are a possibility in the region.
Boracay’s main attractions are its beaches. The most famous of these, the four-kilometer (three-mile) long White Beach, lives up to its name. The popular public beach is lined by tall palms, providing some much-needed shade during the peak of summer, and is ideal for swimming. Families will love the safe shallow water, while the more adventurous will find excellent kite surfing, wind surfing and scuba dive operators along the foreshore. Behind the beach is the main commercial region of the island, D-Mall, where you will find great shopping and eateries.
Those seeking a more secluded beach experience will love Puka Beach, home to the rare Puka shell, while those seeking some excitement will enjoy the cliff jumping at Ariel’s Point. Get between Boracay’s many inlets, coves and beaches on board a motorized tricycle, the island’s answer to taxis. Scooters and bicycles can also be hired for those wanting to explore the island on their own time.
Visitors can reach Boracay via Manila, with regular flights to the nearby Caticlan and Kalibo airports. From here a number of shuttles and taxis run to the ferry terminal, where you’ll be whisked away to paradise.
.Excellent Customer Service . Family oriented, we truly enjoy our stay there and planned to go back again next vacation
It was very peaceful, beautiful gardens and pools, great facilities and the beach was amazing, the staff were very attentive and friendly, unfortunately we couldn't help but get the impression that they expected a tip all the time, as the hotel put a 10% service charge on everything it made us feel ...
The staff were accomodating overall giving them 9/10 but the rates overnight are quite expensive compared to other hotels nearby. The hotel provides complimentary shuttle service for guests which is very convenient for tourists or travelers.
Pros - direct access to the beach, excellent service from staff & good variety of food at breakfast buffet Cons - far from the main road and public transport not allowed to drive in to the property, lots of maintenance issue during our stay (toilet smelt like urine, lifts not working & spa smelt ...
We really loved the resort. The staff is super friendly, hotel grounds and room are very clean. The pool is nice. The food at the restaurant for breakfast buffet is really good and a lot of variety. The location is perfect. We will definitely stay at Hennan Regency again.
By the beach, modern facilities. Very clean. I like the express shuttle service from the airport to the resort.
