The newly opened Lind Boracay is a five-star hotel at Station 1 of White Beach. With 119 rooms, three restaurants and bars, and a ballroom overlooking the sunset vista, The Lind Boracay is the first property of The Lind Hotels brand.
The Lind Boracay calls itself a lifestyle hotel, projecting a more upbeat form of luxe, rather than the usual calm and serene ambiance that has put Philippine hotels on the global map. Offering a coastal playground for the city-weary jet-set crowd that favors a more active approach to downtime, The Lind Boracay is not an escape, but an extension of the chic, modern globetrotter’s dynamic, everyday life.
With interiors by Manny Samson and Associates, The Lind Boracay carries a daring boutique aesthetic across the sprawling property. The specially designed furnishings and accents that fill each space are peppered with unexpected uses of pattern, color and texture.
Plans for an exclusive Welcome Center in Caticlan are underway, where the hotel’s private speedboats will shuttle guests between Caticlan and the Cagban jetty port, and then transport them on land via the resort’s private vans. A private shuttle service arranged by the hotel’s concierge is also available to take guests from The Lind Boracay to other parts of the island, and can arrange activities for guests to indulge in.
At the hotel, amenities include a lap pool, kiddie pool and Jacuzzi on the ground floor, and an infinity pool that overlooks the beach from three levels high.
The hotel also has a full functioning gym that overlooks the garden and pools.
The Kid’s Club has activities for children of various ages, and several options for events and meetings.
The Spa, a top brand in luxury wellness in the country, serves as The Lind Boracay’s partner, and has its own on-site facilities. The Spa’s trained staff provide distinctive services unique to the property, and guests may enjoy them in The Spa itself, at the poolside, or within the comfort and privacy of their own room.
Spanning a total of 28 meters by 16 meters, The Lind Boracay Ballroom is the highest ballroom in the island with the best vantage point overlooking the beach. Easily accommodating 280 banquet guests, the ballroom also has an outdoor viewing deck perfect for watching a fireworks display at night, or the glorious Boracay sunset. Covered in floor-to-ceiling glass windows, the ballroom also features dividers to split the space into three separate sections for simultaneous events.
Six dining outlets
The Lind Boracay culinary team is led by top-notch chefs with extensive experience in banqueting and fine dining. The hotel has six dining outlets, each with its own distinctive cuisine.
Probably the best spot in the hotel is at Infinity—aptly named as it is found by the Lobby Level infinity pool. It has a sunset bar that plays chill and house music.
Each of the 119 rooms, which range from a cozy 47 sq m to a spacious 181 sq m, opens up to spacious balconies with a view of the beach, the pool, or the gardens.
The standard room, called the Garden Room, has twin beds and overlooks the garden and the grounds.
The Sea Room is configured with a king-size bed and a sofa with a view of the ocean, while the Beach Room directly faces the beach and has a large bathtub.
The Sea Suite, at 101 sq m, has the second largest balcony space with a spectacular view of the ocean.
Three room categories feature private pools: the Garden Rooms with Pool are located on the Beach Level, providing easy access to the rest of the swimming pools while maintaining privacy from the rest of the hotel.
The Sea Rooms with Pool are corner-view suites where guests can watch the sunset from the privacy of their own balcony swimming pools.
The Presidential Suite has a balcony large enough to host a small dinner party or cocktails. It also has a pool, and a living and receiving area separate from the bedroom.
The Lind Boracay is at Station 1, Balabag, Boracay Island, Aklan. Tel. 8358888 loc. 8621 and 8622.
