Mini Santorini in Bora

April 28, 2017

“At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour but mood to moment.
We live by the currents, plan by the tides and follow the sun.” —UnknownIn spite of the gloomy weather, budget carrier AirAsia successfully launched its inaugural flights to Caticlan last March 15, 2017. We were in flight Z2 221 which departed Manila on time at 10:55 AM, followed by Z2 223 at 2:30 PM both aircrafts were full load.So glad I got to tag along my favorite gal @rochelleabellaa during this trip!

The flights to Caticlan, the airline emphasized, are the company’s response to the growing demand for a faster way to get to one of the country’s top tourist destinations. A direct flight to Caticlan cuts down travel time to Boracay by more than two hours.I was so impressed with AirAsia’s clean aircraft, comfy seats,friendly crew and most especially its smooth and on-time flight! I’m so thankful to be part of this inaugural flight, congratulations AirAsia! 
Yay!!! Finally, we can get to the quickest way to one of the world’s top destination for relaxation!
AirAsia PH now flies to Caticlan, Boracay two times daily! ✈️🌊 🌅
As we arrived at the Caticlan airport, we immediately looked for the person from Southwest Tours wearing an orange and white sports shirt who was waiting near the exit of the airport. We patiently waited for some guests for a few minutes to fill in the shuttle van then we headed to Caticlan Jetty Port for less than 5 minutes. Then, we transferred to a speed boat heading to Boracay Cagban Port for quick 10 minutes. And as soon as we arrived, we moved to a shuttle van finally heading to our hotel which was situated at Station 1. I love that Lugar Bonito Boracay‘s transfer provider is very reliable for safe, comfortable and on time service! The Southwest Tours took us from the airport all the way to the hotel upon our arrival and back upon our departure. We were billed for the transfer for Php 1,400 each only upon checking in, it’s very affordable compared to other land transfers we had before.

If you guys follow us on Instagram (@aggynuguid & @rochelleabellaa), you would probably notice that Rochelle and I have almost similar feed. We both love bright, white & clean type of feed plus we’re into Mediterranean vibes and rustic pieces. So we were both very excited to shoot, take photos and to experience a touch of Santorini in this Greek-inspired boutique hotel.This is a stunning boutique hotel inspired by the stark white villas of Greece set against the deep blue sea of Boracay. The hotel is located between Station 1 & 2 and very near the beach just across the road. It’s only a short walk to D’Mall, convenience stores, pharmacy and restaurants, indeed a perfect location for us (titas of manila mood. lol) who wanted a little less crowded and more chill spot during our stay.

They have a total of 6 rooms and each room is uniquely and thoughtfully designed and different from each other.  All rooms come with air-conditioning, 32-inch television sets with cable connection, ultra-comfortable hotel-grade mattresses, private toilet with hot & cold shower, an in-room vault and a lot more.taken during our last day // coordinates by Shop May Girl

We were welcomed by the staff with warm smiles, cold towels and drinks as soon as we arrived. The manager Chiqui was also welcoming to each of her guests and very accommodating from the time we exchange emails until we arrived at the hotel. We had a little chit chat with her before she led us to our rooms which was located at the second floor. The manager recommended us some ideal places to eat and even handed us some list of places & activities to try which was very helpful.
