“A hidden gem in Boracay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2010

Repeat visit from 2007. A lovely boutique hotel tucked between the boundary of Station 2 and Station 3.
The hotel is few metres away from the main beach but provides an access to a private cove exclusive to its guests. If you prefer of having your own beach away from the "maddening crowd", then the private cove will suit you. The private cove is a 10-15 min drive from the hotel and a shuttle service (twice daily) is provided for free. At the cove, use of snorkeling gear and kayak boats are free.
The hotel has 1 restaurant. Limited food selection but has the best pizza in Boracay. Price is very reasonable. Room service is available.
Rooms are well maintained, clean and spacious. No bath but big shower area. Basic toiletries provided. The sofa was converted to bed for our 4-yr old son. Our balcony overlooking the courtyard is quieter. The balcony overlooking the pool (where we previously stayed) can be noisy any time of the day due to guests using the pool. The mini-bar is stocked with generous initial complimentary beverages (beers and softdrinks).
The hotel has a lovely outdoor pool but no gym facilities.
The hotel is a 15 min walk to Station 2 where bars, restaurants (athough you will see some along the way) and the local mall are located. Station 1 can be a long trek. Suggest to take a shuttle or for fun try the local transport, Tricycle.
Buffet breakfast very average. Can do better. Prefer the previous arrangement of continental buffet plus your choice of a hot meal.
As this is our second visit, we were expecting the same travel arrangements we had before. Welcomed by a hotel representative at Kalibo airport, transferred by the private hotel shuttle/van to Caticlan then speed boat transfer to the hotel. All with the assistance of a hotel representative.
However, the Manila reservation office overlooked to inform us that evening arrivals are;
a. not welcomed by a hotel representative but by a bus organiser b. are to travel via tourist bus to Caticlan c. use the local motor boat together with the other tourists staying in various hotels. d: hotel representative will be at the Caticlan boat station with our own shuttle for the 15 min drive to the hotel.
Tips;
1. If staying during peak months (December onwards), book 6 months in advance or more if you will require more rooms.
2. Bring insect & mosquito repellent.
3. December to April is the best time to visit Boracay.
4. If buying anything, bargain, bargain, bargain.
5. Do not buy shells (big). As this is one of the items not allowed by the immigration to be taken out of Boracay.
Apart from the hiccup of our arrival, we had a lovely stay at Asya. Lovely rooms and good value for money. We met lovely people and the staff looked after us, friendly, polite and helpful.

The Asya Boracay staff was very helpful and provided great service all around. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. Once you walk into the courtyard, you instantly feel relaxed. It's a short walk to the beach where there are many restaurants. I would not say the rooms are luxurious, but the service was 5 star. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

They have their own speed boat!

Location: If you want the festive atmosphere of Station 2, this is not for you. The hotel is located in the border of Station 2 and 3, a little less crowded area. It is 3 minutes walk from the beach. Therefore, it is not a beach front property. And so i don't recommend this hotel to senior citizens and small kids. They have their own shuttle service in front of the hotel to and from the port.

Pool: Below average size but clean pool.

Hotel Atmosphere: Very pleasant and green.

Room: Clean, spacious and they have everything you need.

Service: Superb 5 star service.

Breakfast: Simple.

I am a hotelier and I could say my expectations were high . . . but yet ASYA met all of it!

Our vacation in Asya was the best and second to none. The place is so relaxing, small but yet so beautiful. My fiancee and I would like to thank all the staff (can't name them all, too many to remember) and we salute them for a job well done! :) Staff are approachable and shown the highest standard of hospitality. I may not able to point out every detail of the vacation but I could testify to anyone that it's like a dream come true . . . a truly wonderful, amazing and relaxing vacation. :)

To see is to believe so better go and visit Boracay and stay in Asya, you won't regret it. if I were a Mystery Shopper, surely they'll get a 100% score.

We have booked a courtyard suite for my whole family for our yearly Boracay Christmas Break. This was our second time on this resort and it never failed to excite us. The room was huge enough for my whole family. Most of the officers and staff especially Marla, Gerald and Rosie are doing their best to satisfy the needs of their clients. Scheduled car service is readily available for a picnic at their cove and in touring their newly built Asya Premier. What a wonderful Christmas break. Mabuhay to the management and staff of the resort. Merry Christmas to all.

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! :-)
