Staying at This Luxury Resort is the Best Way to Experience the New Boracay

Boracay has experienced a significant shift in image ever since undergoing rehabilitation in 2018. From being the central place for summer festivities, it has since become a place of relaxation where families and couples can enjoy intimate and special moments together.

Perfectly attuned with the government’s thrust in making Boracay a protected haven for the environment is Mövenpick Boracay’s adherence to its advocacy on sustainability. When the resort was being built, one of the priorities was to preserve the hundreds of coconut trees and other endemic flora on the property. As a result, Mövenpick’s landscape and layout are centered on gardens, which also enhance the resort’s sense of privacy.

Aside from helping preserve the beauty of the island, here are other reasons why we love this resort.

Mövenpick is Ideal for Those Who Enjoy Quiet Vacations.

Its lush landscape and near-exclusive access to Punta Bunga Beach create an enhanced sense of privacy. According to general manager Andre Brulhart, the resort manages to maintain a quiet atmosphere due to its layout—it was designed to minimize ambient noise. Once in the resort, you will find that you have no need to leave to enjoy what Boracay has to offer.

Mövenpick also has the largest swimming pool on the island. Its expansive, multi-tiered pool covers an area of 3,300 square meters and is surrounded by seven restaurants, bars, and cafes—so you will never run out of options for a poolside snack.

Brezza is one of the seven restaurants at the resort features Boracay’s finest Italian cuisine. Some of the dishes at Brezza are heirloom recipes, while others are modern yet classical takes on authentic Neapolitan flavors.

At the center of Brezza is a huge wood-fired oven flown in all the way from Naples, Italy—the birthplace of the pizza. The oven is the restaurant’s secret to creating authentic Neapolitan pizzas, such as the Al Cafone pizza and Quattro Formaggi pizza.

Relaxation is a Priority at Mövenpick.

Each of the 312 rooms in the resort has an elegant tropical feel and is accented by warm earth tones. “When you come here, just come here and let go,” says Brulhart. “Take a break from tablets or cellphones—this is pure relaxation. Let go and enjoy the finer things in life.”

Luxury Pampering at Sagay Spa.

Mövenpick’s Sagay Spa offers guests two exotic Philippine massages: Hilot Ritual and the Sagay Regenerating Ritual. The Hilot Ritual is rooted in traditional Filipino healing practices that make use of pressure point knowledge and herb lore in treating body pain, while Sagay Regenerating Ritual makes use of sagay or large sea shells that are heated and applied on various pressure points on the body.

Mövenpick Boracay is proof that it's possible to offer guests the finest service that Boracay has to offer while adhering to—and even improving on—the island’s environmental measures.
