Travel to Boracay has never been as comfortable and relaxing as it had been staying at Asya. The transfer from Caticlan to Boracay Island was the first 'wow' to me. Alighting from the bus to be greeted and assisted by the staff, to the comfortable van ride towards the private dock to get on our speedboat transfer towards the island via the 'cove'... This is definitely a nice treat, especially if one is so wanting to maximize time on the island. On top of being dispensed from queuing and waiting for the ferryboat ride at the jetty port, the view of the approaching island is all for one's eyes to take-in without so much visual disruption. At the cove, another van is waiting to transport us to Asya.
Smiles and refreshing towels are packaged-in as we were ushered towards the lobby for our chilled kalamansi juice (good stuff). As we entered our rooms assisted by the hotel staff, it was with so much glee to find a nice roomy place with streaks of natural light coming through the glass window panels. Not only visually relaxing, it likewise has a soothing (spa-like) scent about the room. Other pluses, there's a mini garden through our room. The toilet and bath is just as roomy and comfortable. Complimentary fruits and drinks is not so new to me, but boy hospitality has been spelled out differently when we were informed that the initial load inside our fridge comes as a compliment from the hotel as well! WOW!
The one other thing i really, really love is the bed... lying on it, felt like being wrapped within a minty envelop (there's a soothing feel, equalling the scent).
Being strategically located near the local police station, coast guard office and travel center and other nearby party places its nice to note that Asya maintained an enclosure against noise that may disrupt one's relaxation.
The staffs' constant lookout for our comfort, like towels everytime we leave the hotel is another plus. It was worth knowing also that several board and in-door games are available, should we feel like staying in. Although, i would have loved it even more if the pool's depth had been kept at 4ft. or at least 5ft. across the entire stretch (well thats just a thought, of course there's the vast boracay beach!).
True to the reputation it had earned from being recommended the "roast honey chicken (?)" was a delight to my tastebud, the meat was tasteful inside out and the sauce was a nice combi.
Here's more, hotel staffs goes 2 steps beyond expectations in the delivery of their service by assisting us in the confirmation of and transport to our early flight in Kalibo. Staying at Asya, made this Boracay trip a real leisure and relaxation time-out.
My senses are too glad taking in all that you have extended during our stay, i'll fondly look back to this visit and definitely will tell my friends about it.
More happy guests to you! All the best and more! :-)
