Home Away From Home #3 – Shangri-La Boracay

It’s a paradise in paradise.

The Shangri-La hotels never fail to impress. This time, with a complimentary ticket to the gate of paradise in hand, my breath was taken away.

極致的風景,垂涎的美食,和藹的服務態度,我總算體會到了真正的 “流連忘返” 。

Mabuhay, means “welcome” in Filipino.

Outdoor Pool

It is as inviting as it could get. Nature seems to be the only companion, with melancholic dance of the ocean within a seeable reach.

Which is the pool and which is the sea?

是海,是泳池?

Don’t you wish this is the view of your own backyard?

Even a beautiful fairy can’t resist taking a siesta on a hammock, with such solitude and peace by the side.

這般幽靜、這般愜意,即使是不食人間煙火的精靈也不禁停駐小憩。

And now, for the even more luxurious category – Loft Villas (7 in total)

接下來,參觀一下更高檔的雙層別墅(共7間)

完全屬於你的個人空中泳池,將完美景致盡收眼底。

Can’t miss a single sight, even in the bathtub :)

One thing which I absolutely love about Shangri-La hotels is their attention to details.

What did I just say? Attention to details. Here you see another illustration.

My short passage to the paradise in paradise concluded with the setting sun.  Earnest was my anticipation to the next visit. I shall return, I told myself.

我在天堂中的天堂停留片刻,直至黃昏。望著這片寂靜的私人海域,我心中小小吶喊:“一定要再回來!”

  1. I agree! Thrice, I’ve stayed with Shangri-La in different cities and they’re impressive! The natural beauty of Boracay complements the impeccability. But what’s more amazing are your photos and the words you choose. Thank you for this inspiring post!
