I was announced the winner of the Cebu Pacific Juan Blogger Challenge which made me a Cebu Pacific Airlines first Blogger Ambassador and I won 4 fully paid trips to Philippines with flights sponsored by Cebu Pacific Airways, Accommodation by Agoda and shopping money by Visa!
This is my 3rd trip to the Philippines, so I decided to go to Boracay, as everyone has been saying its a must go for their crystal clear beaches and white sand!
This time, I travelled with Eileen and we took an early flight to Manila, and took another connecting flight to Boracay. Agoda was gracious enough to book for us a nice room at Alta Vista, Boracay. We even had airport transfers & boat fees covered. Totally loving it!
We reached our hotel and it was beautiful even though it was slightly affected by Typhoon Yolanda. Alta Vista is a resort away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist beach, and its located only 5 minutes from Puka beach. It has 500 rooms, so well you can say its a very big resort. We had a swift check in with really nice concierge service which brought us to our room.
check out our room:
It really feels like a honeymoon site!
Lovely swans all over
For Him & Her stuff! So cute!
After chilling in our room, we decided to go to white beach at station 2 which is the tourist spot for everyone! you can literally find anything there from souvenir shops, restaurants, mini marts and of course, a crystal clear beach! Alta Vista provided shuttles every hour so it was pretty convenient to head over there at any time.
To those who wants to buy seashell souvenirs and stuff, head over to Puka beach as its way cheaper. I'll be updating that in my next post

A place called the hobbit house
And of course, the sunset there is beautiful! Check out some of the pictures we took!
You can rent a sale boat out if you want to get hold of the sunset. a person quoted me 1,500 pesos for 2 of us but I wasn't too sure of the rates so we didn't do it
The shirt "Bangon PH" means Rise Philippines in direct translation. these shirts are for charity to help those who were affected by the Typhoon

And when night came, it was the life of the party as there was nothing more happening than the beach itself. lights illuminated the streets and the stars illuminated the sky! This is ever so close to paradise!

Thats all for this post. I'll be updating soon on the other activities I did at Boracay! I want to personally thank Michelle from Cebu Pacific for arranging all these for me and of course to the wonderful sponsors, Cebu Pacific Air, Agoda & Visa for this trip!
Stay tuned for the next post!
