Lunch Out at The Sunny Side Cafe in Boracay

Boracay is the most popular beach here in the Philippines. The island has plenty of restaurants and coffee shops. One of the best (for me) restaurant here is the Sunny Side Cafe. There's a lot of foreigners and locals dining here. If you wanna splurge with your partner or family and friends and share awesome goodness food try Sunny Side Cafe.


Mandala Spa & Villas

The Mandala Spa & Villas

Upon entering this huge property, you can immediately feel the relaxing ambiance and tons of trees and plants will welcome you here. Mandala Spa is just along the road right after Station 3 - D' Palengke. You will not miss this huge signage outside the property. 

The place was very relaxing and the calmness vibe around the property and you feel relaxed right away.

I have been to many spas and this by far the most and on top of my list now.

Who wouldn't love the nature and ambiance here at Mandala Spa? I mean, it's perfect for honeymoon and couples.

Also, they are selling organic products and some pasalubongs/gifts for your friends/family.

Before they start the massage, they will clean first your feet and massage it just a little bit. After that, they will ask you and let you smell 4 different oil that you may choose 1 to use on your body massage.

This massage room has a bathtub and you can also take a bath here before you start your massage.

The quiet, relaxing and wooden spa room will give you the utmost relaxing feel. I had 60-minute Mandala Spa traditional spa. It was a memorable and the most relaxing and lavish massage I ever had. Thank you Mandala Spa for letting me experience your 5-star spa service.

BGC Hostel: Be at Your Greatest Comfort

BGC hostel, is one of my favorite hostel so far. It has clean rooms, colorful designs and hostel staff are nice and courteous.  

This hostel is really near EDSA, located at 2855 Danlig street, Pinagkaisahan Makati City. The hostel opened October 2015. The place is very new and very clean. For only 499 pesos per bed you can experience  a comfy hostel stay here.

We stayed at the 2nd floor with a small living room set here. You're family or friends can hang out here.

Comfortable, clean bunk beds on our 8-bed room. It has also small curtains that gives privacy while you're sleeping.

Room has private shower and toilet.

Lockers for your belongings.

Thanks BGC, I had a great and wonderful experience here.

Why I'm not Mad at The Mad Monkey Hostel in Boracay

The Mad Monkey Hostel

It's my first time in Boracay and we stayed at the Mad Monkey Hostel. This hostel is a 3 storey building. When you enter the hostel, 2 swimming pool will welcome you and their friendly staff as well. 

When we went to our respective room assignments I was surprised that rooms are spotless and doesn't even look like a hostel or cheap accommodation. It's simple and has comfy bed and ensuite bathroom. The room is equipped with air-con, small table, but no television. I love also the bamboo furniture's in this hostel - it's very relaxing and Asian feel.

Mad Monkey also offers great choices of Breakfast. From American Breakfast to Silog Choices. I have tried all of it and I love it all.

Lets check out some of the pictures taken at the mad monkey hostel.

Private rooms and coed dorm rooms are all available here.

This is good for a family or group of friends, even for backpackers also. Most of their guest here are foreigners.

Pool where guests and even non-guest can swim here, given that they have to purchase food and beverage at thei restobar.

Big servings of plated breakfast to fill our tummy.

Why I'm not mad at Mad Monkey Hostel is because it has all the needs and wants of a budget traveler with a feel of hotel ammenities and services.
