I’ve been to Boracay but that was 16 years ago so I was pretty excited to go back. I was finally able to go back last month with my husband and my children.
Upon arriving at Kalibo, I immediately noticed that there were so many tourists in the province. We got a taxi from Southwest Travels that will bring us to the Caticlan port and shuttle towards Fairways and Bluewater. It took us an hour and a half to get to the port. When we arrived at the Caticlan port, it was filled with tourists! But thankfully, the line didn’t take too long and we were able to ride our ferry soon. The ferry ride only took 10 minutes and we were finally in Boracay.
We rode a shuttle that took us to Fairways and Bluewater. Fairways and Bluewater has its own beach front and is found beyond station one. It is in Newcoast, Boracay.
When we got to Fairways, we were taken to Terraza Front Office to check-in. Fairways and Bluewater is a huge property, so getting familiar with the area is really a must. We were checked in to a junior suite in Margarita building and the room was truly spacious. We even had the golf course as the view of our own veranda!
The staff in Fairways and Bluewater are very courteous and helpful too. Every time we needed a shuttle to get from one place to the other, they were efficient and courteous to assist us.
We were able to dine at their different restaurants inside the resort which included La Terraza, Laguna Cafe and Veranda. The food was delicious and appetizing.
As for their amenities, we were satisfied with the 3 pools that we were able to visit out of the 6 pools inside the resort. The pools were clean and well maintained.
Our favorite was the infinity pool. It was truly breath-taking! We spent most of our time in that pool.
We spent most of our time at the beach. It was the family favorite.
The other amenities included golf, wellness facilities, cable car and zipline, water activities, non-motorized activities and motorized activities. If you want to go to D-Mall, they have hourly shuttle which will take you there and back to the resort too.
We went to D-Mall a couple of times to eat and to go to the beachfront and watch the sunset. Though the beach was filled with people, the sunset was absolutely amazing.
We stayed for 3 days and 2 nights at Fairways and Bluewater. We enjoyed our short getaway immensely. Though the place was fully booked, we didn’t really feel that it was. It was refreshing to be by the beach and to be away from the usual activities that you need to do. Can’t wait for our next getaway at Fairways & Bluewater in Boracay again.
