“Exquisite views, peaceful location & delightful staff... I am in love with Nami!”
Reviewed March 17, 2011

I have stayed at Nami a few times over the past 8 years and have enjoyed every single visit to this one-of-a-kind, casually trendy boutique hotel. I love Nami's homey and serene atmosphere, the comfortable and spacious rooms & balconies which offer the most gorgeous sea views, as well as the restaurant's delectable menu and stunning open-air vista. Above all, I appreciate the superb personalized service provided by Nami's friendly staff. Special thanks to Ralph, who anticipated my every wish :)

Sometimes in life you just have to treat yourself and the Nami is a perfect place to do this. The rooms, the restaurant, the views - it was very special. The service was FANTASTIC and we were on a first name basis with most of the staff after our 5 days stay. The best part about the resort is that you don't feel like your in just any resort in any part of the world. This 'Boutique' style resort cozy and uniquely 'Boracay'.

There are lots of stairs so probably wouldn't recommend to elderly/disabled people.

We absolutley loved staying at The Nami Private Villas and I would definitely stay here again if/when I go back to Boracay.

The most beautiful views from a resort I have ever experienced, we had room 6 good size, everything you would expect from a resort of this standard, staff available at all times, quick serivice from the staff, staff very observant on the deck with the umbrella so as we didn't get burnt, a few steps to get up to your room but not an issue if you dont have any problems, great location for those that dont want the noise from station 2, a 15 min walk into town, restaurant prices the same as down town so dont make that assumption, dont pack to much as the excess baggage from Manila after 10kgs is huge, do Manila on the way home if you want to shop, dont make our mistake

We didn't have the opportunity to stay in this resort 'cause they're fully booked at that time but we had the chance to eat at their restaurant. NAMI in Ilonggo means Maganda/Nice. If you go to Boracay, don't miss the opportunity to eat at DINIWID's best restaurant. What's best about it?
1. Location. To go to their restaurant, you need to choose between climbing 100 steps or riding their scary and freaky wood elevator. So we chose the elevator and our helper chose the steps.
Elevator - one quick scary moment. You'll scream if it's your first time or your heart will just jump out of your body. =)
100 steps - it's ok if it's morning but if it's evening - it's scary, dark and freaky. So you decide?
2. People. They have the best people there. Microtel people are so nice to us but it's their job to treat us well since we're staying at their hotel but NAMI resort is as nice as them. I'm kinda surprised 'cause for my 10 days of staying at Boracay, I never encountered a Boracaynon who is nice aside from MICROTEL people. Even vendors are snob there. They're just nice to foreigners.
3. Price. It's affordable and the food is excellent. The menu is perfect for party people and even for the whole family. The price that's in the menu is the same price that is included in the receipt. Unlike the HAMA Restaurant that is so overpriced and will mislead you through their prices at the menu.
4. Ambiance. This is perfect for honeymooners, lovers, couple, family, and even party people because the place is fabulous. The view and the look of the hotel is like the hotels and restaurants at Santorini. It's windy and the view is perfect.
5. Food. The food is just right for its price. Probably the best food and restaurant at Diniwid, Boracay. Their food is tasty and unique. It's perfect! Don't forget to try their desserts.
6. Hotel. Wake up in your room to the magnificence of Boracay Island, with the sun dancing on the azure water and glistening on the white sand beaches. The hillside Nami Resort rooms are fitted with panoramic glass windows and a balcony with Jacuzzi to give guests a fresh, unmatched perspective of Boracay Island, the Sibuyan Sea, and the mountains of Aklan in the distance. Guests can take in from their rooms views of the delights that Boracay is famed for, and then simply board the elevator to enjoy the beach and the rest of what the island has to offer. The resort elevator leads to the deck, spa facilities, and to the stretch of Diniwid Beach. NAMI Resort's rooms are very expensive. Especially during super peak season. I think their rates start at Php 15,000 during super peak season.

We'll definitely eat and attempt to stay in this resort next time. If you want to eat in this resort, please call them first since their restaurant is always fully booked.

Nami is possibly the best place i have ever come across on my travels - my husband and I got married at Nami in January 2011 with a group of approximately 40 people. In the lead up to the wedding, the communication between management and myself was of the highest level - so much so, I actually believed that it surely wasn't going to be everything they had promised. IT absolutely was more than we ever imagined though, we were absolutely blown away with the attention to detail, their staff are such beauitful people - with so much initiative!
On to the actual accommodation - t he rooms and views are spectacular, the food/restuarant is good, they have an amazing bamboo deck where you can soak up the sun or lay on the beach a stone's throw away. It's peacefully private and the butler's for each room are unobstruive and ever accommodating.
Definitely worth treating yourself if coming to this amazing island.

We booked the hotel online at a day's notice because we were arriving New Year's Eve, The advertised rates are steep but once there we managed to negotiate a room for three times less - making it a fantastic £50 a night between two.

The setting is sensational. You arrive via an external bamboo elevator that is like the approach to a Bond film hideaway. The villas perch on a clifftop overlooking the ocean and have jacuzzis on the balcony, from where we watched New Year's fireworks with a bucket of chilled wine.

The staff are very well trained - a little haphazard at times but they more than make up for it with politeness, friendliness and willingness to cater to your every whim. My girlfriend was spiked by a sea urchin (very common in Boracay when the water is choppy) and they sorted her out with a bucket of vinegar without any fuss.

You don't need to pay for the (expensive) transfer - go by boat yourself and get a tricycle or Nami's free shuttle bus. The Ocean suite was beautiful, some of the others more basic but all with pretty much stunning views. The spa is also very good. The restaurant food is very good and reasonably priced, as are drinks. The sundeck is also very handy if you don't want to hit the beach. You are a 20 minute walk or so along the beach from the main resort action, which is over-developed and crowded and best avoided until you want to eat out.

We had a wonderful lazy week relaxing at Nami. Before they came up with the deal, we checked out hotels the entire length of the resort without seeing any as nice or competitively priced if you can haggle them down.

Nami is a credit to the owners. When you see the way many people in the Philippines still live in shacks, the vision to create such a well-designed resort in such a stunning setting and the standards of service and staffing they have achieved is highly impressive.

Stayed here at peak time over xmas and new year so i thought that the hiked up prices were a lot in terms of the standard of accommodation. If you can stay here low season then I am sure it would seem more reasonable.
The staff are all utterly amazing. Smiles at every turn and your every need anticipated. My nami was a lady called Toni and she was brilliant. After day 1 she just knew what I wanted and when I wanted it even before I did in some cases! Ralph collected me from the airport and took me back and he was totally adorable. The location is brilliant at the end of Diniwid beach. The sun loungers on the deck made you feel very exclusive. Sun loungers could have been more comfortable- they did not have matresses like every other hotels loungers had. Not sure why. The lift up is mental. Never got used to it! Food is great and I thought it was very much worth the value. Breakfast was included in my rate + free swedish massages which were fab.
The rooms all have balconies with jacuzzi baths. Make sure you get your nami to run one for you (they take forever to fill up so plan ahead). I had one in the day time when it was raining and one in the evening time. Very romantic and relaxing.
The room itself was just OK. It was quite dusty and there were cobwebs in a couple of the lamps. The bed was perfectly comfortable. Loud air con but I always travel with ear plugs so no problem for me. Sun comes in through the blinds so that woke me up early every morning. You really are paying for the location, the view and the service.
I would recommend this place but having said that, I probably would not stay here again unless I got a really really good rate.
