Thanks to a teambuilding session scheduled earlier this year,
I got the chance to visit and stay in Shangrila Boracay for free! 

Shangrila Boracay is a 5-star luxury resort located right at the end of the Station 1 strip.
It's exclusive enough that one would need to take a shuttle or a tricycle just to get to the resort.
The resort also has it's own port and speedboat, making travel to and from quite convenient.

 Upon arrival, we were greeted with a breakfast buffet at the hotel view deck close to the lobby.

After checking in, we traversed a long walkway to get to our rooms.

And we were greeted with this view.
 My favorite part of the room was the balcony where we could sit with a view of the shore.

The hotel has a gorgeous pool area.

We took a shuttle to "Mainstream Boracay" as we now call it and had a chance to 
take in the wonderful sand and shore.
 Even caught a glimpse of the sunset.

The hotel in all it's splendor before boarding the speedboat that would take us back to reality.
