Lugar Bonito Hotel in Boracay is a gem I was truly glad to discover on my recent trip to Boracay. Since I was assigned to book our hotel for the said trip, I really took it to heart. I searched long and hard to find the perfect boutique hotel for my first trip to the island. Fortunately, I chanced upon Lugar Bonito somewhere online. The six-room Greek-inspired hotel located at Boracay’s Station 1 looked so inviting! I knew I had to book it.

I did not make the wrong choice. Service at Lugar Bonito was A+.Communication with the hotel went smoothly even before we arrived. When we did arrive, they made every effort to make our stay a memorable one. Although it wasn’t a beachfront property, my friends and I didn’t really mind the one-minute walk to the beach.

Lilom Resort & Gallery Cafe

I stayed at the beautiful seven-room Lilom Resort & Gallery Cafe with my family a few years ago. I can still recall the wonderful view from their plunge pool as it overlooked the horizon. What a sight that was. Aside from their room’s beautiful interiors, another noteworthy thing about this small resort is that meals are inclusive when you book a stay. The entire resort can also be booked if you want privacy for a weekend.
