Salvador: Making moments at Movenpick Boracay

Jeepney Jinggoy

MOVENPICK is passionate about “making moments.” They want to do ordinary things in an extraordinary way. This is the philosophy that defines them. But what about in Boracay where everything about the place is deemed extraordinary - the vibe, the shoreline, pristine blue water, the sunset? The island is a paradise. How does Movenpick apply its tenet to a place that has been voted as the best beach in the world?

Consistency. It did not falter to deliver the warm, intuitive, and personal service it’s known for. The same traits are innate to the Filipinos. It’s a match made in tropical heaven.

Movenpick Resort & Spa in Boracay is an upscale resort located on the northern top of the island in Punta Bunga Cove. It’s nestled in a lush tropical landscape with a private beach enjoying the best facets of Boracay—the green forest, the white sand beach, and the blue sea.

You’re a friend the moment you enter the resort. The friendship band they put on you locks them to that promise. Your indulgence will be on their top of mind.

Let’s start with the rooms. There are 312 well-appointed contemporary guest rooms and suites that present breathtaking view of the tropical paradise, a sight that will lure you out from the comforts of your room. The verdant pathways will open to an immense multi-level pool, a cool escape from the island heat at any time of day. A few steps away is the private beach, your own piece of Boracay tucked in a cove. No crowd here.

Then magic hour comes. Boracay is quite popular for its sunset. It’s not to be missed. Movenpick makes the moment more alluring with a superb cocktail from Sol Marina Beach Club and chill-out music. Or you can just sit on the white sand and watch the sun set in the horizon ablaze in hues of orange and yellow.

Cravings can be satisfied at any of their restaurants that offer International, Asian, and Italian cuisine. Not to be missed are the 90-seconds-to-bake-pizzas at Brezza. Ask the Italian chef why it’s special.

Your nightcap may not be a drink but a relaxing massage at Sagay Spa. It’s the perfect way to end a day of frolic in the sun, surf, and sand, and a prelude to a restful, dream-filled night in your cool, cozy suite.

Yes, it’s true when Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay says that they have everything imaginable for your tropical island holiday. It’s nothing short of extraordinary.
