Boracay Getaway! Awesome beaches and a great atmosphere which can't be missed!

Hi everyone. This post is a little late as I've been rather busy the past few weeks and I didn't have much time to edit photos or even craft this post. But anyway, to those who dont know, I managed to visit Boracay mid December! 

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!

If you have no idea what Agoda is about, Agoda Company Pte Ltd (Agoda.com) is a leading Asia-based, online hotel reservations company, which specializes in securing the lowest discount hotel prices. Agoda.com is part of priceline.com (Nasdaq:PCLN). Agoda.com's network includes more than 360,000 hotels worldwide. The multinational staff of more than 1,400 professionals, located throughout the world, provides a first-rate reservation service that uniquely combines local knowledge and local connections to provide the best hotel deals to both business and leisure travellers.

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:

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

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

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!
