Longing for a Boracay holiday? Over the past few months, Boracay Island was closed to the public for its much-needed beauty detox. In 30 October 2018, Discovery Shores Boracay will unveil its new look and exciting new offerings.

Here are the top 10 reasons why going back to one of the world’s best beaches and its famed Discovery Shores Boracay should be on your must-do list. Let this be your go-to Boracay guide for a vacation to remember.


1. The new Signature Suites are absolutely gorgeous.

The crown jewel of Discovery Shores Boracay, the Signature Suites is an exclusive wing of the resort with 11 indulgent room offerings, replete with its own infinity lounge pool – easily one of the best places to stay in Boracay.

It’s your chance to meet the Signature Suites’ very own Guest Experience Makers, or GEMs for short — since they’re dazzling like that! They’re there to give you a bespoke Boracay experience like no other.


2. The exclusive 360 Roof Lounge will make your jaw drop.

Guests of the Signature Suites can elevate their perspective at this lounge, with 360-degree panoramas over the island’s cerulean sea. Relax on the pool deck, laze in a hammock or decompress in a Jacuzzi or heated infinity lounge pool. The roof-lounge butler will make sure you have the most blissful moments.


3. An authentic Italian restaurant awaits.

If you’re looking for the best restaurants in Boracay, look no further than Discovery Shores Boracay’s newest culinary offering: Forno Osteria Kitchen and Bar, located by the courtyard of the Signature Suites. Open from breakfast through dinner, it serves mouthwatering Italian fare in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere with a bruschetta bar and a brick oven for pizza lovers.


4. The 88 suites had a noticeable facelift.

Refurbished and made even better, expect no less than a sparkling new room when you stay at Discovery Shores Boracay. Think brand new carpets, furniture, and even bathroom fixtures – Boracay accommodation at its finest.


5. Caffeine addicts are in for a treat.

For a pick-me-up between meals, the resort’s new offering, the Coffee Bar, serves espresso drinks, cold brew coffees, loose-leaf teas and an assortment of sweets for a sugar rush. Swirl. Sip. Repeat!


6. Indigo Restaurant is now bluer than blue with an exciting new menu.

Discovery Shores Boracay’s very own Indigo, one of the top restaurants in Boracay Island, now has “new” everything: from its open kitchen, menu, and wine list. Popular with guests and food critics alike, the coastal cuisine in Indigo is the perfect match to its prestigious collection of vino, consisting of New and Old-World vintages.

7. The bartenders from Sandbar have new tricks up their sleeves.

Aside from a refreshed look, one of the hippest watering holes in the island is overflowing with new cocktails to jazz up your sunset-watching sessions. Of course, Discovery Shores Boracay’s famous flavored mojitos will still be there to keep you satisfied.

  • COZY AND HOMEY. This was our 6th or 7th stay and the staff is still very accommodating. The location is strategic being right beside convenience stores, mall, and restaurants… I can say we plan to make it a habit to greet the new year here.”

  • OUTSTANDING AND FRIENDLY SERVICE. The service at the facility is outstanding from arrival to departure. Any thing you ask for is done promptly and with a smile. The gym is pretty good with all the requirements of a hotel gym, with sauna, personal trainers and group classes.”

  • COMFORTABLE HOME AWAY FROM HOME. I stayed in the Discovery suites hotel for 7 weeks in March and April while in Manila for work. And it was very easy for me to start calling it home after a few days! The location is great – podium mall across the street, Starbucks next door and across the street, megamall and Robinson’s galleria only a couple of blocks away.”
