First, I want to thank the on-site staff at Asya Premier for a beautiful job, well done on my wedding. When we first decided to get married in Boracay, we took a chance on Asya Premier. It was not as raved upon as the Shangri-la and the Manila front office was pretty difficult to coordinate with overseas. But the on-site staff in Boracay, especially the resident manager Tophy, gave us the beautiful sunset wedding we dreamed of and we only met with him the first time 2 days before the wedding!
Overall, everything was very good. The service was great, especially one staff member Reyman, who helped me throughout the night to straighten my dress train and fanned me (it was quite hot in March especially in a 3-layer wedding dress). The location is beautiful. It's off the beaten path of white beach, so the wedding was pretty private with little spectators beside the other guests staying at Asya. The rooms were beautiful, with large bathroom and a huge patio facing the beach and property gardens. All of the food that I had a chance to try was delicious, and several guests confirmed this as well. The property was also very romantic, with the 10 villas, the infinity pool, staircases leading down to the beach. The private dock transfer from the caticlan port was fantastic.
I would give this resort 4.5 stars. There were a couple of small details missed for cocktail hour (and that's partly our fault as well since we only had a chance to meet with the staff 2 days before the wedding). Also, the hotel doesn't have a spa which is a huge disappointment for a high end luxury resort. As a result, the people they contract in to provide manicure/pedicure and massages were not good at all. Having had mani/pedi and massages at all kinds of establishments in Manila, Boracay, Puerto Princesa, and El Nido, I can say that the people Asya contracted in for these services were the worst. To be a 5* resort, this is something they should work on improving.
