It’s Tuesday in our part of the world once again. Time for Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is F and so I share a few photographs from Fridays Resort in Boracay. Evidently, I still have a hangover from my beach escapade with my family.
Fridays Resort Boracay
This is what I have been looking forward to since March this year when we booked our reservation for Fridays in Boracay.
It was our first time in this resort as we are regulars of Waling-Waling, another resort in Boracay Station 1, which unfortunately closed down.
One of the reasons why we chose Fridays is because of its location. It’s quite ‘far from the madding crowd’ – just the way I like it.
While it has the advantage of being a short distance from the party scene, it is quite a long walk if one wishes to go to D’Mall where most of the restaurants and the shops are located.
It does make for a nice stroll along the beach though. I like how peaceful this photograph looks – and this is taken by my eleven year old daughter.
This photo is also taken by my 11 year old daughter. These little wooden chaise lounges with the parasol are part of what makes Fridays distinctive as a resort. One really gets to feel the beachfront accommodation that it provides.
I don’t really go to the beach to swim, so much as listen to the waves and read my novels. This is the perfect place to do that.
We also have a very reliable and efficient group of security people who make certain that our valuables are taken cared of while we are on the beach.
I thought that this was a special treat for us: chocolate truffles every night along with a painstakingly-handwritten note on a leaf. My daughter always gives a little squeal whenever she sees the dark chocolate truffles neatly packaged near our doorstep at night.
The bed on the left is for my husband and I, while the bed on the right is where my daughter slept. It was a fairly huge room, and we had our own private jacuzzi in our bathroom. That was really neat.
The gorgeous view from our verandah for seven glorious days. While the facilities needed a bit of maintenance/repair (door knobs that are not working and such) – the wonderful and warm staff (from the people who picked us up to the waiters/waitresses in their restaurant [glorious food] and the maintenance people who patiently cleaned our suite each day, and the lovely masseuse with the gentle hands) more than made up for it. Now that there is a direct flight from Singapore to Boracay (which opened 18th of July this year), I have a feeling we will be back quite often.
My husband and I had a candle-lit buffet dinner while my daughter chilled out in our suite.
With my crispy golden daughter who loves the beach as much as I do. Boracay is an experience everyone must have in their lifetime.
