A Great Non-Beachfront Accommodation – Azalea Boracay

I was lost in my thoughts, appreciating the beautiful view of Boracay from the swimming pool area of Villa Caipirinha, mentally giving myself a high-five for scoring a fantastic opportunity to stay in such a luxurious accommodation when I heard someone say that we wouldn’t be staying there for the night.





 

“What? We’re not staying here?!” I asked in disbelief, already concocting plans of feigning an illness so I wouldn’t be forced to go.

“Yes,” someone-whom-I-cannot-remember said.

“Why the hell not?” I asked, threatening to throw a tantrum.

“We’d stay here tomorrow. But tonight we’re going to Azalea.”

“Ooh Azalea,” I replied, immediately feeling appeased.

I remember staying at Azalea Residences in my recent Baguio trip where I practically started an affair with the bed. My Azalea Baguio stay was nothing short of amazing and I expected to have the same experience at Azalea Boracay. I had more than what I expected.

From Diniwid Hill, we went down to the town proper. Azalea is located somewhere between Station 2 and 3, it’s not a beachfront resort, but it’s a short walk from the sea. Personally, I didn’t mind the short walk. I already tried a non-beachfront accommodation last time and I was perfectly fine with it. [Read: Cheap Accommodation in Boracay Station 2]

We alighted from the van and saw this big globe installation. Apparently, this is Azalea’s trademark because the Baguio has its own globe too. I immediately noticed its difference with the Baguio hotel, Azalea Boracay takes a more modern architecture and design. The colors are also kept light, a play of blues, greens, whites, and browns to suit the island vibe.

When we entered the lobby, we were greeted with the receptionists behind tall tables that were set separately they looked like they were contestants on a TV show. I found that amusing. They were all smiling and they welcomed us so warmly I was almost suspicious (kidding, lol). Our friends from the Travelbook.ph gave us our room assignments. I was billeted in the same unit as Cai (Travelosyo).

As soon as we entered the room, Cai started shouting for joy; I meant he literally screamed in excitement. He entered his bedroom and he squealed, he entered my room and he squealed, he entered each bathroom and he squealed. He did so much squealing I half-feared someone would suddenly come in to see if a pig is being butchered. He later explained that he has a fascination with hotels and that he screams in delight everytime he enters one. I was like, okay.

So there are two bedrooms and two showers with toilets. The room is equipped with a kitchen and a dining table, there’s also a small living room with a huge flat-screen TV. There is free WiFi connection, but sometimes the signal was weak.

Now let’s go to the bed, the bed is very spacious, even better than the one that I had in Baguio that I started a new affair hehehe… I loved sleeping there, it was so comfortable, I’d just about forgotten my disappointment for not staying at Villa Caipirinha that night.

Azalea likes to give freebies to their guests. In Baguio they send us chocolates everyday, in Boracay, they gave us assorted fruits; I took them all home hehehe…

I admit our stay there was sponsored, but I am not over-hyping things, I really loved our stay at Azalea Boracay and if you are after a comfortable accommodation during your time on the island, I suggest you book your stay there. You’d probably squeal in delight too.

    Looks like a beautiful hotel even if it isn’t beachfront. And I must agree, the receptionists do look like they are contestants on a TV show hehehe

    Oooh I like their color scheme. Those front office podiums though, hmm. But anyway, I totally can imagine Cai’s squeals while reading this. Azalea looks like a great choice too for those seeking a non-beachfront accommodation in Boracay. Perfect for a quiet vacation. 🙂

    This looks like a great alternative to the beachfront properties of Boracay. I must admit I too thought the front desk staff looked like they were participating in a game show. But, they all look very friendly. Thanks for sharing this lovely option for a Boracay stay.

    I do remember your post on Azalea in Baguio so I did a double take when I first saw this post. Interesting to know that Azalea is present in Boracay too. These two are places I have never ever been to. The bed does look really comfy. Haha, I can just imagine the squealing. Such a fun company to be around.

    I’ve never heard of Azalea but this sounds like a perfect spot if you’re traveling with friends! I always like to have a little peace and quiet time after discovering a ton of new things, so it really looks like one would be able to find sweet repose in between discoveries! They totally look like contestants on a TV show though…you’re right!

    I didn’t know Azalea also has a branch in Boracay! All I ever know is the one in Baguio. It ‘s really great finding out that some of your favorite hotels are also in other places. It guarantees a great experience.
