Here’s Why The District Boracay Should be Your Next Romantic Destination

by Trixie Reyna-Benedicto

The new Boracay is a more swoon-worthy destination than ever.

While the bar scene is still happening, regulating the party circuit has made Boracay’s White Beach less crowded, less busy, less noisy, and more beautiful—making it more conducive to reconnecting and unwinding with the person you love.

If you’re planning to surprise a loved one with the quintessential Boracay trip and you’re the type of couple who prefers to stay close to the world-famous shore while craving some tranquility, The District Boracay is sure to deliver exactly what you want and more. Here are 5 reasons to plan a sweet escape to this chic resort in 2019:

1. It lets couples get the best of both worlds on the island.

Whether you’re in Boracay for a quiet vacation or an adventure-filled getaway with your partner, The District Boracay brings you the best of both worlds. Its excellent location right at the beachfront of Station 2 means it’s just steps away from some of the island's hippest restaurants and bars, if that’s your thing. The water activities you can consider trying out together are easily within reach, too—from paraw sailing to island-hopping, helmet diving, and snorkeling.

Yet the resort also provides you the sublime space to slip away for some intimate quality time, as it’s still on the more relaxed part of White Beach, very close to Station 1 coming from D’Mall. Boracay's sparkling turquoise waters and powder-fine white sand are right in front of the hotel. You can admire the famously glorious sunset while you lie on serviced beach loungers under the shade of coconut trees outside your doorstep. It’s the perfect backdrop for new romantic memories—no wonder it’s been a consistent TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awardee since 2014!

2. Luxurious accommodations and amenities make it feel like a true honeymoon destination.

While the livelier part of the island is close by, the sleek, white-washed resort’s elegant interiors and superb amenities will make you and your partner feel like you’re cocooned in your own luxe world. There’s a fully-equipped Fitness Center if you like working out together, or you can also lounge to your heart’s content by a 5-meter outdoor lap pool. Why not soak in the jacuzzi for an extra dose of kilig?

Its spacious, well-appointed rooms will make you want to stay in and cuddle. Everything you could possibly need is right there: a wide and comfortable bed, flatscreen TV, complimentary wi-fi, bath and shower complete with bathroom amenities, and a private veranda with a spectacular view of the pool.

Even couples who need to travel with young kids can sneak in some alone time, as the resort offers babysitting services (fees may apply) and connecting rooms.

3. There are three date-worthy restaurants within the resort.

We can totally understand if you two decide to stay within the comforts of The District Boracay throughout your trip, especially since the resort boasts of three dining options to satisfy whatever cravings you may have.

Filipino favorites are best enjoyed at the beach, so check out The Plenary, the resort’s newest restaurant serving elevated local flavors. For healthy and vegetarian meals (to maintain the Boracay body you both worked hard for), there’s House Brew Cafe. In case you prefer to indulge your sweet tooth instead, it also offers gelato and pastries to go with their specialty coffee.

Head up to the Star Lounge for international cuisine, expertly mixed cocktails, and the acclaimed “Best Brunch Buffet in Boracay.” The delectable spread of continental and Filipino breakfast staples (don’t miss the popular Eggs Benedict!), live action stations where you can customize your pasta and crepes, and selection of fresh juices and bread will welcome you at the second floor. At the third floor, you’ll find the al fresco bar and events roof-deck overlooking the resort with a gorgeous view of the Boracay skyline and the sea. Here you can order gourmet appetizers, entrees, and steaks to pair with your drink of choice while you people-watch below. A stylish glow bar, colorful lights, and plush lounge chairs create the perfect ambiance for a chill date night, with Sunset Happy Hour starting at 5 PM.

(DG Tip: Star Lounge is supposedly an amazing spot for wedding proposals!)

4. The in-resort spa will get you in the mood for romance and relaxation.

A romantic tropical vacation will not be complete without a rejuvenating couple’s rubdown, and The District Boracay has the Upperhouse Spa just for that. The serene in-resort spa offers indulgent treatments to make you and your loved one feel absolutely pampered. For utmost bliss, try the signature Upperhouse massage, with wave-like strokes inspired by the Hawaiian Lomi Lomi technique and infused with traditional Thai stretching that will simultaneously soothe and invigorate you. There's no better way to cap off a fun-filled day and set the mood for the rest of your trip.

5. There are two Deal Grocer offers perfect for couples to experience the best of The District Boracay!

Have we convinced you yet to treat your significant other to a rendezvous at The District Boracay? Take advantage of the 3D/2N Deluxe Room for 2 with Buffet Breakfast, Roundtrip Airport Transfers & More that will take your romance to the next level. You may opt for the deal valid daily from early January to May 2019 to start your year together on a happier note or in time for a summer getaway, or the one valid from June until late September 2019 as a mid-year breather. (Why not get both?)

Both deals come with a 30-minute massage sampler so you can experience their signature spa services, and a ₱1,000 F&B voucher to try the best dishes in any of their three dining outlets during your stay.

Plus, with these deals’ complimentary airport transfer service (Caticlan-resort-Caticlan), your escape conveniently begins at the resort’s private Welcome Center to catch the boat going to the island. If you’re coming from Kalibo, you may ask the resort to arrange the transfer from that point for a minimal fee. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and kick off your romantic escape!
