Our first impression of Nami resort began when they sent a really pimped up open-air van to pick us up. Barry from Nami picked us up, and greeted us with the warmest of smiles the moment we met. 5 minutes into the journey, my partner and him were dancing to the blasting music like they were long lost pals! and that's how personable their service is.
Getting off the van, we walked along the beautifully serene Diniwid beach and saw Nami up on the cliff. Like all the other reviews, the elevator at Nami is truly an experience on its own. Each time you get into it, their staff will give you a grin and ask "Ready??", and that's when the elevator starts rumbling its way up to the reception area :) living in the city, i missed the sound of this old fashioned elevator as soon as i got back.
after a very quick check in, we were shown to our room by our personal butler Joseph. we stayed at the Ocean View suite and the room had the most amazing view. we literally woke up facing the sun, sand and sea. we definitely made use of the balcony and could spend a long time there just staring out into the sea.
while the room was not the cleanest, i guess in a resort surrounded by natural greenary - you had to expect some insects and lizards would trespass every once in awhile. nonetheless, they did their best in keeping the rooms clean and turndown service was prompt every day in the 5 days we stayed there :)
Joseph our personal butler was super efficient, and was happy to help in any way. he would serve you your breakfast, arrange a shuttle bus whenever you need, prepare a bag of towels and ice water when you leave for the beach, and was more than happy to get the kitchen to prepare a cake for my partner's birthday. on our last night, he also surprised us by putting on the jacuzzi - and he prepared this himself!
having passed several hotels along station 1, we were even more convinced that we would not have stayed any where else in Boracay. station 1 had everything you need from watersports, drinking holes and restaurants - but every few steps you took, someone would after you asking if you wanted a massage/island hop/henna..
if you're looking for a quiet getaway not far away from station 1, then Nami would have to be the one. in any case, a free shuttle is available for you any time and civilisation is just less than 10 minutes away :)
