Lovely beaches, outstanding services, and relaxing atmospheres are hallmarks of these three luxurious resorts — the top luxury hotels in Boracay, according to our expert hotel investigators.
The sprawling Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa is a five-pearl, 219-unit property located in a secluded spot amid lush tropical gardens in northern Boracay. All rooms are stylish and elegant, and villas have private pools or outdoor whirlpools, sweeping ocean views, and butler service. With an excellent spa, varied dining options, tons of activities for all ages, three striking pools, and access to two lovely beaches, there's little guests can’t do on-site. But those seeking to see the sights or experience the island’s famous nightlife can easily access Station 2 via the hotel’s free shuttle.
Located on the northern tip of gorgeous White Beach, the 87-room Discovery Shores Boracay is one of the most luxurious resorts in the area. With spacious, refined rooms, a luxe spa, a pleasant pool with a swim-up bar, and beach and pool butlers, this property provides a high-end yet relaxing experience. All this luxury comes with a high price tag, but freebies such as roundtrip airport transfers, shuttle service to other parts of the island, Wi-Fi, and breakfast add value. Additionally, service is consistently outstanding, with great attention to detail and lots of thoughtful extras, including welcome foot baths, turndown service with personalized treats, and face mist service by the pool.
Monaco Suites de Boracay is a Mediterranean-style luxury property located in a secluded area, a little away from the hustle and bustle of Stations 1 and 2. With private access to a small beach, an infinity pool, and stunning ocean views from all common spaces and rooms, the hotel is an ideal pick for couples and families seeking some peace and quiet. The property consists of 50 large, upscale suites with one to three bedrooms, large furnished terraces with ocean views, spacious living areas, and full kitchens. The restaurant serves tasty international cuisine and has great views, and the rooftop bar is a lovely spot for a quiet drink at night overlooking the ocean. In-room massages are available, but there is no full spa on-site.
