Luxury hotel to open on the tropical island of Boracay
Luxury hoteliers YOO Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of its first luxury resort residence in the Philippines – Aqua Boracay by YOO.
Due for completion in winter 2015, the new beachfront hotel will bring the brand’s trademark union of contemporary design to the island of Boracay in the Philippines.
Regarded a paradise for kitesurfers and consistently ranked as one of the world’s most beautiful islands, Boracay remains a relatively undiscovered idyll in south-east Asia. With the inception of Aqua Boracay by YOO, together with a newly upgraded airport set to launch around the same time, a rare opportunity to discover an exotic destination will be even more attainable for the discerning traveller.
The five-star property will comprise 168 spacious guestrooms and suites with wraparound terraces, most of which look out to the stunning turquoise waters, and two restaurants with equally impressive views. One will be a specialty restaurant, while the other will feature flavours from the Philippines and Boracay combined with international culinary influences.
Complete with a specially-designed lagoon pool facing the sea, a second stylish rectangular pool, and luxuriant sunbeds arranged alongside the deserted Bulabog beach, the luxury Philippines hotel has been designed to offer uninterrupted views of the heavenly landscape throughout its entirety.
Mark Davison, design director, YOO Studio, said: “Aqua Boracay by YOO embodies our philosophy that design enhances the wellbeing and comfort of guests and is not an end in itself. We fell in love with the Island of Boracay when designing the project and we hope it shows in the personal, locally inspired experience we have created.”
Aqua Boracay by YOO is due for completion in late 2015, aquaboracay.com
