Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel
Found in the thick of White Beach’s Station Two, the independently owned Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel has 52 spaces and suites.
The majority of spaces deal with an appealing central pool with fountains and hanging vines.
The pick of the rooms is the 90-square-meter Ambassador Suite, with dark wood panels, a four-poster bed, leather lounges and an expansive veranda with a Jacuzzi and view over White Beach.
Although situated on among the liveliest areas of the island, spaces stay peaceful after midnight thanks to double-glazed windows.
Breakfast is served at Don Vito restaurant, a popular beachfront eatery where the day-to-day catch is shown on the ice and live music is performed each evening.
The resort’s Mandarin Spa ignores the beach and uses a range of massages and beauty treatments.
