Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa 🗺🏝🌊

Aerial-view-of-the-pool-area-1300(1)Just last month, early August, Justin and his colleagues stayed at Shangri-La’s Resort & Spa for their yearly team building. They were encourage to stay longer at a company rate but since I was in Japan that time and wasn’t able to follow, he opted to stay only for work. So happy that he agreed to this review!

 We’ve been to Boracay countless of times as a couple and group (mostly with my family) because Aklan is actually my mother’s hometown. I think I’ve mentioned that many times before. But in case you haven’t read about it, my mom was born and raised in this small province. Thus, most summer (or any) vacation was spent in Aklan and of course it wouldn’t be complete without a trip to world’s famous white sand, Boracay. I’ve never written about hotel reviews before since I wasn’t open to the *idea* of giving personal information away on the internet. But lately since people are calling me out for being uptight (true story bro), I’m trying to loosen up a little. At my own phase tho. First, I’m sharing a hotel review as told by Justin. I’ll be doing my own hotel reviews soon! (Let me know your feedback about this first haha)
