“Great value for your money”
Reviewed March 28, 2010

We stayed in this Bluewaves beach house last March 2008. I could say that the resort owner was really nice, from the very onset of my reservation she was really very accommodating. She would really entertain all your questions and inquiries, the place is perfect specially if you want to have a beach front accommodation that wont cost that much. Room is super clean and the colors of the linen, comfort room, utensils really matches the interior design of the room. In totality the resort is really worth coming back for.

The word "Shangri-La" is often used in a similar context to which "Garden of Eden" might be used, to represent a perfect paradise that exists hidden from modern man. It can sometimes be used as an analogy for a life-long quest or something elusive that is much sought. For a man who spends his life obsessively looking for the perfect beach getaway, such a place could be said to be this man's "Shangri-La".

If you come to Boracay for the nightlife, the party crowd or to shop till you drop, then the north beach might not be your idea of a fun vacation, but you'd be hard pressed to find a more pristine beachfront on the island.

Nestled in an exclusive neighborhood between the high-end Discovery Shores and Ambassador Hotel, Blue Waves Beach House is surrounded by opulence and luxury. This privately owned, boutique-style resort consistently rates one of Boracay’s Best Value accommodations.

Peak season rates were in full swing when I arrived with rates beginning at P3,000 for a Standard Room to P7,000 for a Deluxe Suite. But since there were not many guest when I was there, an upgrade was given by way of a discounted Deluxe Suite.

The suite occupied the top floor, with a step-out balcony and large picture windows facing the beach. And from where I was standing, I could happily conclude that not even the neighboring luxury resorts could offer their guest a premium suite with the exact same view I was enjoying.

Suntan in hand, I ventured out to lounge at the beach, read a Grisham book I found in my suite and watch the beautiful people swim through turquoise waters as the ocean breeze cools my sun-kissed skin.

Attendants were on hand to distribute beach towels and help set up my chair. When I got hungry or thirsty, I ordered a cold drink to down a plate of the famous hand tossed pizza from the resort's own "Beach Bites" Snack Bar. When I went out to swim, an attendant watched over my things. When I got tired, I had a relaxing massage within the confines of my suite. Now isn’t this enough to call this place paradise?

Ever the most critical about the level of service a hotel provides, I was quickly swooned over by the way I was pampered by the resort staff and spoiled by the owners, Lisa and Mia. Of all my years as a traveler is search of my own “garden of eden”, I have found a place where the service is sincere, where the hospitality is the warmest, and where you find yourself welcomed…like family.

When Robert Conway wrote about the Shangri-La he found, he simply said “I think Im going to like it here”. Allow me then to say “Here’s my hope that we all find our Shangri-La, for I think Im going to like being here….forever”


Thank you to Lisa and Mia for allowing me the privilege of staying in Blue Waves.

Stayed at Blue Waves beach house just this Oct 26 to 29 and had a great time.
Didnt know what to expect when I first booked this place but when I got there, it was a very pleasant surprise. I first got picked up by the hotels little jeep and got there pretty quick. I reserved a standard room for 3 nights but got upgraded to the deluxe room I think for the first night as the standard room was still booked. The room on the third floor was very nice and it had a balcony overlooking the beach. I wish they didnt upgrade me because when I finally got to the standard room on the second night, it just wasnt the same. But the standard room was still nice and clean.
The thing I liked most about this place is that it is really a beachfront hotel and you are right beside discovery shores and paying so much less. The staff was really great! I cannot say enough about bbing rowena and del. They made it so worth while to stay at that place. The rooms are very cozy and very clean. You just have to book way in advance I guess because they have only three rooms that are on the beach. And the pizza and the snack shack was very good! I would go back to this place anytime I will be in boracay.
