Romantic and luxurious. A real bang for your buck!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Mar 30, 2024
My wife and I spent 2 weeks visiting my family and decided to spend the end of our trip on Boracay just us two. The resort is beautiful and our room was spacious and felt luxurious (especially for the price!) The entire staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. When we arrived they helped us with our bags to our room. Every worker from the reception, spa, even the guy watering the plants greets you with a smile and a friendly hello.

My wife and I are both transgender and were never misgendered or mistreated. I even got a massage without an issue. Highly recommend getting a massage! They serve you tea and it’s a very relaxing experience. I chose the Muscle Melt because the description said it focuses on shoulders and lower back pain and I had been complaining about lower back pain before we got to Boracay. After that massage I still have no back pain even after returning home and going back to my physically demanding job as a welder. I loved the beautiful clothing in the lounge area of the spa. We definitely took some pieces home and got my wife a pair of earrings too.

The resort is a short walk to the beach but be aware you will have to go down a hill on a trail type stairs with uneven, rocky ground and no handrails. At the end of the stairs there’s a pedestrian gate that leads out to the street that goes downhill before getting to the beach. It was easy for me and my wife but if you need mobility aids/disabled or are really out of shape or really drunk it might be difficult. The convenience stores, restaurants, bars, souvenir shops along the beach are very walkable (we only stayed in station 3). The free breakfast at the resort was also amazing. We ordered the fried fish flakes, quinoa pancakes, omelette, eggs florentine.

My wife and I are well traveled and this was one of the best vacations we’ve ever had!

Maraming salamat po Mandala! We enjoyed our stay so much we can’t wait to go back and will definitely recommend to our family and friends.

One of the best Phiilippines' destination and a real gem in Boracay Island. Service here is superb and very attentive. I love the place, as it let you feels in another world. Staff are all courteous and always smiling. The resort manager, Cedric is very accomomodating to all my request. Spa here is true to their awards and afiiliates and a must try. Will definitely visit again soon.

Room tip: Book early to avail their promos. :)

The best vacation I've had in awhile.

Every day, my husband and I would make it a point to watch the sunset from the resort's beachfront. After going for a swim, the attentive butlers would be ready with cold pandan water for us. Throughout our stay, little things like taho and arroz caldo during breakfast and kakanin for turndown service made balikbayans like us feel truly at home.

There are so many luxury stays around the world but what truly separates Discovery apart is the genuine warmth of their Filipino staff. Can't wait to come back!

Room tip: Don't make lots of plans because you might end up not wanting to leave the resort!

Spacious well appointed room comfy bed and plenty of pillows. There was a large private balcony, and large bathroom. Loved the outdoor shower. At first no hot water but a quick call to the staff, they switched on the heater and nice hot shower. No cell reception but there was free WiFi through the property. Excellent 4 hour spa experience. There was no pool but the property provides access to their electric tuk-tuk to take you down to the beach in minutes.

Room tip: More of a resort for getting away from the noise of the beach, No beach access but a quick electric cart ride to the beach.

Really good service with a very good choice of design, fabric and textile, and the environment in general. There's easy access to the beach while being shielded from the hustle of the tourist areas along with a lot of greenery in the area.

What a lovely and tranquil oasis in Boracay, even in the midst of the holiday season. The Shodhana Karma treatment was a wonderful start of my holiday and Cher is a knowledgeable therapist that made me feel at ease.
I also stayed in a magnificent villa that looked amazing. Would definitely come back
