Evening welcomed us with complimentary glasses of cocktails followed by bottles of Red Horse Beer at the roofdeck of The District Boracay. The sky was painted in electric hues and stories within our circle were pouring in as fast as we were consuming our drinks. On the west, the sun’s afterglow was weakening, painting Boracay’s White Beach a pale blue; and on the south, the posh balconies of the resort together with its outdoor swimming pool were starting to glow with lights. We were at the best of both worlds.
|CUBE MODERNIST DESIGN|
The District Boracay is located on the beachfront of Station 2, the busiest part of the White Beach. It’s less that a minute away from D’Mall and is at the center of the party scene on the island. I love the fact that it’s quite near Starbucks too, no need to carry my newly bought Boracay Icon mugs an hour away to wherever else, lol.
|CLEAN TONES COMPLEMENTED BY GREENS|
I like the resort’s architecture, modern and minimalist. Walls are painted in clean white; the only accents being black trims, tan-shaded stones and well-tended shrubbery. It has two restaurants, Caruso at the ground floor and the Star Lounge, where the buffet complimentary breakfast is set, at the second floor. And yes, they also have a bar at the roof deck.
|THE LAP POOL ~ OPEN EVERYDAY FROM 7:00AM TO 10:00PM|
We spent two nights at the resort and were billeted on their Deluxe Queen Rooms. Located on the ground floor, it is right across their lap pool; quite convenient since we usually lounge and swim around the pool and Jacuzzi at night before going out to party.
|WE HAVE ROOM FOR MORE!|
|LOVE THE SEPARATE TOILET AND BATH|
I was astounded at how huge our room was. Furnished with two queen-sized beds with separate toilet and shower rooms, it still has space for our whole group (all five of us) to convene in and have a few drinks over while watching indie Filipino films on their flat-screen cable-TV during lull moments.
|OUR FAVORITE SPOT, THE VERANDAH|
Our room also has a small balcony overlooking the pool. We love spending time here having coffee, which is replenished daily (along with everything else like mosquito repellants and sunblock! Nice right?), and just shooting the breeze.
|LEMONGRASS WELCOME DRINKS|
One of the nicest aspects of staying in at The District is their lovely and friendly staff. Besides being really well-dressed (their uniform rocks, ehem), everyone seems genuinely pleasant and knows each guests by name. Now, that is service at its finest.
|THE ROOFDECK BAR AT TWILIGHT|
|THE WHITE BEACH IN FRONT OF THE RESORT|
But the problem in staying at the The District Boracay is really the dilemma of basking in the comforts and luxury of the resort versus going out the door and enjoying the soft sand and the emerald waters of the beach. Lucky us, we have three days to ponder over and answer that question.
