My Azalea Boracay Experience

As I've mentioned in my previous post, I got the chance to visit Boracay again this year (pahabol pa before the year ends yipeee) through Azalea Boracay, with the help of Kuya Melo and Paul! We flew via AirAsia and even though there was a typhoon, that didn't stop us from making the most out of our little vacation. Stories through photos! But first, OOTD... 


Greenhills top & shorts, Nava sunnies, Veloci watch,  Bucketfeet Petals sneakers by Meera Lee 

Love my new Bucketfeet sneakers! Love the print and how it matches the pink top I bought from Greenhills for P150 haha. 


Here are photos from Day 1!
We were greeted by these gentlemen from Azalea as soon as we landed in Kalibo!:)

Our van provided by Azalea which will take us from Kalibo to the Caticlan port


Van Groufie! Such a fun bunch!

Journey took 2 hours and I just slept all the way there. Hihi.

Caticlan port!

Merry Christmas!

Our boat! 

The trip to the island from the Caticlan port just took 15 minutes!:) And then finally, Boracay!

Azalea tarps to guide you and help you make the right decision when it comes to accommodation. Hehe.

Reality! We are cray-cray.

Love how they have a restaurant inside the hotel. You will never get hungry! 


I love how Azalea has a partner restaurant inside the hotel! Kuya J offers authentic Filipino cuisines. We ate lunch here muna before we were given our room assignments! I was so full that I fell asleep as soon as I got in my room. Haha.

Sweet and Sour seafood. I think. 

Baked scallops and Adobong kangkong. OMG, the scallop's so good! 
Now I'm hungryyy.

Tortang talong & Lechon Kawali

After hours of eating, drinking and singing our lungs out, we finally decided to call it a day! I went out alone though to buy some essentials. Walked to Boracay Crown's 24-hour convenience store 'coz it's the only store open at that time. I have no photo but posted it on Snapchat that day. Hihi. 

Elevator shot!

Azalea at night

Love the lights:)

That night, I slept like a baby! I could drown in Azalea's buttery soft sheets, ultra-fluffy bed, and soft yet supportive pillows. Had to drag myself out of bed, everytime. So haaard. I just wanted to stay there, all bundled up and watching TV while sipping tea, ALL DAY. 

So we assembled at around 8-9am the next day. We had planned activities (parasailing or ATV) sana but due to the typhoon it got cancelled. Actually, it was only the parasailing that got cancelled, we just agreed not to do ATV anymore. We all wanted to just chill and enjoy the island, as well as our rooms! Hehe. 

 Goodmorning, beautiful Boracay!



 We ate our breakfast, with the beautiful Boracay sea as our view, at OBAMA resto! 

So, I've always thought the resto was named BAMA Grill. San galing yun??? Hahaha! Apparently, OBAMA pala kasi yun. Ano baaa. I feel so cheated on. My life is a total lie. I don't wanna live anymoreeee. Waaaah. Huhu. Haha. Ana kept on teasing me! Laughtrip!

Our breakfast! Saraaap.

After breakfast, Kuya Melo asked if we wanted to go to this "secret beach" which I will not name because he might kill me. Haha! We did not go down though because my loves Ana and Paul needed to go back to the hotel to freshen up pa and I did not want to go without them. Next time!:)

 Road to the "secret beach"

Truth is, I actually wanted to go back to the hotel because I missed my room, my bed, and I wanted to nap. Baboy lang. Haha! So I retreated to my room and napped while waiting for the others to finish taking a bath. After an hour, met up again with Ana, Paul and Ruth. We opted to just chill at the beachfront while waiting for the others who were picked up from the "secret beach". The beach is just a short 3-minute walk from the hotel. 

 Thank you Maui and Sons for my shirt!

And thank you CESA for my beautiful swimsuit! Inaura ko talaga ng todo. Warning: Too many photos. Please bear with my ka-GGSSan. Haha.






 Thank you gf Anagon for taking my photos! 

CESA maillot, Forever 21 coverup, NAVA shorts & sunnies


My forever partner!

Fun bunch!


While taking outfit photos, it started to drizzle, so we decided to go na to D'Talipapa where we met with the rest of the gang for lunch!


 Seafood coma!

After lunch, we went back to our rooms again to siesta. It also rained hard, so we waited for the skies to calm down muna before going out. Didn't mind getting locked up inside again, though! At around 3pm, got a message from Ana that she's at the beach na with Papi Rodel and Ruth. I did not want to swim but I still followed and made tambay nalang at the shore while eating gelato! Perfect. :)


They finished swimming at around 4:30pm and we headed back na to the hotel. We originally planned to go to Spider House for sunset, but we got so caught up swimming in Azalea's pool that we decided to just cancel our plan. Sunset at the pool's rooftop was worth it. Look... :)

 Cotton candy skies:)


 Having fun in the jacuzzi!

Bakit kami tawang-tawa

 Love our Azalea trio! Hehe

 Sobrang laughtrip kami while swimming!

Tres Marias

After swimming, we freshened up and went out for dinner. I forgot the resto but it was recommended by Kuya Melo and they serve the best ribs!!!
 Nomnomnom

 Me with Ms. Jo, Myke and Kuya Melo

Ana, Paul, Papi Rodel, Gian and Ruth!

Had so much fun making chika with this girl! Love you Ruthilicious!

It also rained that night. Mejo start na ng bagyo nun. Scary. Went back to the hotel afterwards for more bonding, drinks and movie! 
Bought chips from Budget Mart!

Watched Hotel Transylvania 2 in Ruth and Papi Rodel's suite!:)

All covered hehe

We were supposed to fly back to Manila the next day, but due to the typhoon and bad weather, our flight got cancelled! It was not so bad though. We got to stay in this paradise for 1 more day. Yey! :)



 Crashed Ana and Paul's suite

May pa-yummy! Magtakip ka nga loves! Haha.

We were then summoned to Kuya Melo's suite for lunch!
 Azalea's 1-bedroom suite!

After dinner, we headed back to the hotel for our scheduled massage! Loving this life ha. So spoiled!
 Found this surprise on my bed:) 

  Thank you Ate for the amazing massage! :)

Got hungry afterwards so I messaged Ana and we went out for midnight snack...
 May Johnny Rockets na sa Boracay!

 My order! This burger was originally priced at almost P300 but it was their burger of the day, so P150 nalang! Swerte!:)

 Elevator selfie hehe

Packing and leaving was bittersweet. Didn't wanna leave our home in Boracay. I've become so attached with my room and my bed and my pillows and even my toilet. Dun lang ako hindi naging constipated! It was truly a miracle. Haha. My friends who really know me would agree!

 6am skies. No filter:)

 Hello, Paul

Bat na naman. Haha

 Pwedeee


Class picture before leaving! 


In summary, our Azalea experience was so wonderful and definitely one for the books! It might be more expensive compared to other Boracay accommodations, but Azalea's world-class service, exceptional rooms, amenities and highly-trained staff will be more than enough to make that decision for you. Choose Azalea! You know I will. :)


Thank you Azalea especially to Ms. Jo Fabello for this wonderful experience. Can't wait to be back! With my family this time. :)
