Boracay honeymoon get-away

Boracay Island in Aklan is probably one of the most popular tourist destinations here in the Philippines. Tourists and city folk alike flock to these beaches every summer, usually to enjoy its famed beach nightlife. I myself have wanted to go there and experience that night life people so often talked about, but my hectic schedule made me want to crave more for quiet moments with my husband as opposed to partying till dawn.

Before choosing Boracay as a honeymoon destination (or even the spot where you’d like to have your wedding if you’ve got enough cash lying around), there is something that you should first ask yourself: Are you there to party with crowds or enjoy quiet and romantic moments with your husband? This matters a lot, especially when choosing the hotel you’d be staying in. Either you get one right in the middle of Boat Station 2 (where the night life is), or you get one on the far end of the island where it’s quiet and secluded. The same goes if you want to have a wedding in Boracay: it’s either party or privacy. Fortunately, I have been able to see both for myself.

Last January 11 to 13, Marc and I joined Pinoy travel and photo bloggers on a trip to Boracay sponsored by Microtel Inns & Suites, in partnership with South East Asian Airlines (SEAIR) and Zuzuni Boutique Hotel and Restaurant. They wanted us to try out and review their services.

But the thing is, I would like you to have the most comprehensive review of these three as much as possible. As a former bride-to-be, planning all aspects of my wedding required thorough decision-making. After all, weddings are very special, and so are honeymoons. As such, I’ve separated my reviews into a series of posts for your reading convenience:

Part 1: A romantic Boracay honeymoon with Microtel
Part 2: Honeymoon alternative: Dining and night life with Zuzuni (coming soon)
Part 3: SEAIR: Taking your wedding on the air (coming soon)

As usual, I will try my best to be as objective as possible. Enjoy!
