The Philippine islands and beaches are most famous for being the perfect destination during the hot summer. But don't limit yourself to only a couple of months a year because beach-bumming plans can be fun–rain or shine–if you know what to do and where to stay. In fact, some island hoppers prefer the monsoon season, or never let the inclement weather dampen their need for an extra dose of Vitamin Sea during the latter part of the year.
Boracay is not just your perfect escape during the summer, as Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay gives you more reasons to visit the island, rain or shine. If you still have some vacation leaves left or are simply looking for an excuse to pack your bags and be beach bound before 2019 ends, these reasons to visit Mövenpick are especially for you!
1. You'll Experience Punta Bunga Beach and the Chiller Side of the Island
If you find yourself all caught up in the busy-ness of city life, what with all the crazy daily traffic and workload, then getting as far from the chaos as possible is what Mövenpick can offer.
