“You Don't Wanna Leave When You Get Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

Me and the love of my life visited this place to celebrate our 11th year anniversary together and I must say that we loved every bit of this resort. From the jetty port lounge, they welcomed us with refreshing towels and drinks. After signing up, the butlers took us to our speed boat and brought us to the resort. It was just us. We were welcomed and picked up by a buggy service and we were brought to the lobby to check in. We stayed in a room with a view of the sea that made us experience watching the beautiful sunset during our 3 nights stay there.

The sand in the private beach area is different from the powdery sand of the main beach but it's still white, and lovely! Try ordering pizza and beer while soaking under the sun, it's great!

We didn't even wanna go to the White Beach / main beach anymore because the resort is paradise on its own.

The resort is about 15 minutes far from the main Boracay beach but the resort has shuttle services that leave on time, every hour, and every thirty minutes starting 6PM. When you get to to the D'Mall drop off point, a resort staff is there to welcome you and assist you when you want to take the shuttle service back to the hotel.

The walk from the rooms to the breakfast / dining halls may be a little far but the buggy services made it so easy for us. The pool is great too, try finding the corners where you can press a button to get that jacuzzi feel.

The fitness gym is also a must try. They have a jacuzzi inside and very clean locker and shower rooms.

Breakfast, food, room service, everything's just amazing! It was all worth it. We ended our trip with a promise that we'll come back. It felt like home for us.

Room Tip: The sea view room is perfect when you just want to relax on a day bed and hear the sound of the wave...

Yes its expensive but everything else is paradise.
It's a secluded place where you can have your needed peace and tranquility in the beach.
Food was amazing, Staff were very friendly and accommodating.
Overall I am very much impressed and if you want to experience the best in Boracay then this is the best hotel to stay in.
I really have nothing bad to say to this hotel :)

First time in Philippines and we very much like the country. As we were exploring the country we decided to go to Shangri la is a great choice. Very friendly staff and great service. During our stay the Hotel was several Times completely booked out, but no problem to find sunbeds on theach, restaurants or breakfast. And with a villa you can escape always to your island on the island... Food is a bit pricy but okay. Booth beaches are great... However, the semi-private one is less busy and even more relaxing. Spa is nice but average. We will return to this place but would like to check Amanpulo to experience the difference....sometimes the many functions are bothering. And in other resorts with villas they are better maintained (not so clean cushions etc)

Room Tip: Even the view is more amazing in other villas than the Pool ones, we would to back in the Pool villa...

The 3 planes and 1 boat I had to take to get to the resort is well worth it, they take you in a speed boat straight from the airport to the resorts private jetty and take you in a buggy to your villa and check you in I never seen the lobby


Room Tip: Tree house villa. All staff said it is the best villa there

If you just need to get away from the noise and stressful life, Shangrila is the best place to stay for family bonding, and honeymoon escapades... not much recommended for groups since their location is very secluded and they have noise restrictions though they also have fantastic amenities and great food..However, since their Sales people is based in Manila office and the one who will handle the event itself is a different person who is based in Boracay, Shangrila lacks personalized and passionate service for Groups which is very transparent from other Resort Hotels we have stayed before..so, the feeling of coming back again for Team Building activities is not present. Their Sales people is great in convincing you to stay and held your event at the location but execution at the place itself doesn't meet your expectations anymore. They dont exert much effort to make your functions lively as they are very dull in their themed decorations or functions to think we have already paid additional cost for that, ...However, to be fair, they are good in handling their guests who comes as family and as an individual or couple...Another thing, I also don't understand their automatic shut off at night wherein guest will experience waking up just to turn the aircon on again..Perhaps, I would like to come back but only with family for bonding time but not ever again as a group of 170 pax for 2 batches....

I've been going to Boracay countless times. Always checking in at Discovery Shores. This year we tried to Shangrila Boracay because several years back I was delighted by my experience in Shangrila Mactan Cebu. The facilities are very good. It is a perfect getaway experience. Or so I thought, The staff were not as courteous as I think they would be. I'm more at home at Discovery Shores.
