Boracay Has A Secret - Part 1 (Hidden Gems Of Boracay)






Boracay has a secret and I'm gonna share it today. If you have been following my instagram, you must have seen the photos I'm just about to showcase (Saying it like pro but no, I am not. I am, just to put emphasis on it, a hobbyist.)

Take it from me - Boracay is not just Boracay. For half a year that I have been living here, it feels like I am somewhere on the other side of the globe. For me it is heaven. While many think Boracay is luxury and a vacation place perfect to spend a holiday, for the residents and locals, this island is a home.

And what's an island life without a home or a place where you can really feel the island vibe, right? I've been to several areas of Boracay and probably you haven't heard of these unique accommodations unless you have read it from Trip Advisor. I bet.

But yeah, I'm gonna share it today hoping one day you'll say you've been here and you got the details from me. Enjoy!

  • Spider House

Boracay Island - Spider House Resort

 Always been my favorite hangout place. Why? The view is awesome. This is located at Diniwid Beach about15 minutes tricycle ride from D'mall Station 2 - a perfect spot to watch the sunset. They have Filipino styled rooms with thatched roofs, using mainly bamboo and wood.

  • Pulang Lupa Villas

If you are planning to go to Bali but would rather stay in the Philippines, then visit Boracay and stay at Pulang Lupa. The villas at Pulang Lupa are Balinese temple style villas standing majestically on top of a hill, also at a pristine quiet cove of Diniwid almost near Spider House Resort.

 Along with a few other designer tropical homes, this place is the ideal tropical retreat and is one with nature - a world away from modern day stress.

That is very beautiful. Lucky you that you live in Boracay. Btw, Spider House ba talaga tawag sa place na yan? How much is per night? Oh.. I'm googling it! :D

Hello! The room rates varies depending on the season. If I got it right, it's around 2.5-3k PHP. :)
