It was situated in New Washington, a nearby town to Kalibo, close to the airport area. It was by the beach, but you cannot directly go to the beach from the hotel because there's a seawall. Anyhow, it gave the hotel a good feel.
Mati was actually referring to the Angel statues of the hotel.
It turned out that the hotel is owned by Sam Butcher, the creator of Precious Moments. I really thought at first that either the owner is obsessed with Precious Moments, and he ripped it off in Aklan. :)
Except that it seems they're not able to maintain these facility.
So it felt weird because it seemed they wanted to look busy but then there's nothing to be busy about.
Added to that, the restaurant / reception area has no window maybe to recreate the "White Christmas" where Sam Butcher came from.
But it's just sad to see their beaches littered with garbage.
(Path to the beach.)
It was probably the safest time to do a road trip because it's also the week of APEC 2015. The whole stretch from
Kalibo to Caticlan, Aklan was posted with Police / Security station.
SG. We stayed at Alta Vista de Boracay, at the northern part of Boracay.
It's probably 5km+ away from the popular Boracay Station 1-3. But it's near the Puka beach, and Punta Bunga beach, and Ilig-iligan beach.
Boracay in the northern area, gives the feel of Singapore because of the buildings left and right with a pocket of protected "trees" and beach areas, and with the hotels in the area having their own transport system -- there's that elysium feeling and that people to be living on dictated schedule unconsciously.
In a way, it kinda fits Mark perfectly. :)
