There is something about the water that calms the soul, a reason as to why most people would flock to the beach when they need to relax. The newly rehabilitated island of Boracay, now with its stricter management rules and regulated number of tourists, has regained a sense of tranquility that is palpable, most especially at night.

When one walks along the rows of restaurants and souvenir shops of the D’Mall District at Station 2, he would most likely notice an opulent three-story structure that emanates the same sense of tranquility the water evokes. Feliz Hotel Boracay, with its Latin-American-inspired design, is a sight to behold from the outside with its massive 18-feet-tall double doors alone.

Managed by the Enderun Hotels, the establishment is just as stunning on the inside. With its plush couches, lively decorations, and quaint atmosphere, one will immediately feel at home upon entering the hotel. The focal point of all decorations, though, is the huge floral ornament on the wall behind the reception area that happens to be its logo. A plant that can be found in Latin countries, it is attributed to peacefulness, which is what the establishment hopes the guests would feel when they sleep at night.

Feliz Hotel Boracay currently has 80 rooms across its three floors. With the spacious floor areas, the establishment remains true to providing luxurious comfort to its guests that is perfect for families with children.

Its Deluxe King accommodation, for starters, is around 27 to 33 square-meter wide and its king bed can fit two adults and one child. The 36-square meter Deluxe Double room, on the other hand, can accommodate four adults and two children in its two queen beds and one daybed. The Premier King and Premier Double rooms have similar amenities, with the exception of a bigger space and the availability of a bathtub.

For a maximum luxurious experience, the hotel also offers its 52 to 59 square-meter Suite room and its 72-square-meter Feliz Suite that can both accommodate two adults and one child. The latter has a separate dining and living room within its quarters.

Apart from the comfort, the guests’ lifestyle needs are also catered to as the hotel provides several amenities. Its two rooftop pools that are not deeper than four feet make a safe space for children to swim, while the fitness center ensure a consistent workout for guests with its full-range equipment and machinery. A meeting room that can hold 12 to 15 persons is also available, along with a list of recreational activities to choose from.

There are also two restaurants that are managed by Chef Onie Castillo. The all-day La Plaza, which has a menu that focuses on Latin cuisine. Everything in the restaurant is homemade, and ingredients are locally sourced within the island. Paella Arroz Negra, Paella de Mariscos, and Gambas al Ajilloare just some of its must-try dishes. Another best-seller is the Churros con Chocolate, which is also being sold in a kiosk set up outside the hotel every afternoon.

Buenavista, on the other hand, is the hotel’s rooftop restaurant. There, comfort food like pizzas and sandwiches are being served. These, together with the alcoholic drinks served at the bar, make a perfect match while watching the breathtaking view of the sunset.
