Boracay's Station 2 along the internationally famous White Beach is known for its lively nightlife and eclectic array of resorts, each façade containing a personality of its own. One of the most prominent and hard-to-miss structures along this beautiful stretch of white sand is Boracay Regency Beach Resort and Spa.
Boracay Regency, the island's first Triple A resort, is sprawling and can easily be mistaken for three establishments instead of one, its Mediterranean-inspired architecture adding to the allure brought about by being by the sea. The resort has 285 rooms, with the Main and North wings located on the beachfront. All rooms are spacious, offering modern conveniences that reflect the resort's image of comfort and luxury. Aside from hotel room essentials such as hot/ cold showers, air conditioning, and cable TV, Boracay Regency's rooms also include high speed internet access, pillow-top mattresses, and 300-thread count duvets. The resort also has a gym, a business center, and a convenience store--giving guests every reason to stay within Boracay Regency's inviting sanctuary.
The resort is a destination in itself, providing both checked-in and walk-in guests with restaurants and services that have become part of the Boracay experience. There are seven restaurants connected to the resort, each with its own theme, cuisine, and specialty. The Sea Breeze Café, where most guests enjoy their buffet breakfasts, is home to the island's biggest and most extensive buffet. Guests get to take their pick from different international dishes while relaxing to a beautiful view of the sea. Zhu Asian Cuisine, meanwhile, offers dishes from all over the continent. Christina's is a fine dining restaurant that specializes in Italian and Filipino cuisine. It is where wine lovers can pair vintages with prime cuts of beef and fresh seafood. The Regency Food Plaza is an open-air restaurant that specializes in Chinese, Korean and Japanese food, while the Gazebo Grill offers a wide array of char-grilled seafood, meat, and poultry. Guests who want to relax can do so at the Garden Pool Bar, where they can sip drinks while enjoying one of the resort's pool (Boracay Regency has three), or at night, they can head to the MO2 Wave Bar, which features live music and private KTV rooms. Guests who are staying in one of the Suites also have access to the VIP Room, a relaxing little alcove in a quiet part of the resort that offers refreshments from 10am to 7pm.
Another popular feature of the Boracay Regency is Kai, the resort's spa. While there are many spas on the island, only a distinct few offer the level of privacy, menu of services, and personal attention that Kai has become known for. The spa also specializes in honeymoon spa packages that include pampering delights especially for couples. The resort also offers or can set up a variety of tours and sports activities to keep guests occupied, should they get tired of lazing around on Boracay's white sand beach.
The Boracay Regency has everything you need for a relaxing stay in Boracay. No matter what your intention for coming to the island is, whether it be to experience its cuisine, try a new sport, or just relax on the beach or in a spa, the Boracay Regency makes a great jump-off point, one that guests will be loath to leave.
