swimming pool 7stones

“7 Stones Boracay did an excellent job,” Yram’z S, who stayed with us July 2015 with his significant other. “Whether it was the top-notch food delivered to the room, to delicious drinks at the pool swim-up bar, they made us feel like royalty and always greeted us by name. They even arranged a romantic beachfront 4-course dinner for us! The room we stayed in had an awesome view of the ocean, and the balcony was perfect for breakfast and coffee, delivered at our request.”

And will they come back?
“I will recommend this place to all my friends and family.”
Thank you, Yram’z!

Maureen stayed with us last July 2015, for business. Here’s what she had to say:
“It’s located on the serene part of Boracay Island. For anyone who wants to escape the chaos of White Beach, 7 Stones Boracay Suites should be on top of their list.”
Why, thank you!

“Their rooms are spacious, clean, and well-maintained. The food was delightful, and the staff was beyond accommodating! If you want to experience the other, better side of the island, you’ll love 7 Stones Boracay Suites.”

Here’s a piece from Charlotte U, who enjoyed a 10-day stay with us last May.

“Stayed at 7 Stones for ten days; it was fabulous. It’s located on the opposite side of White Beach, but it only took us 10 minutes to walk over. It was so beautiful, with amazing rooms. In my opinion, it’s the best spot on the island.”

Thank you! We try to keep it nice for our guests!

“We saw the sun coming up from the ocean from our balcony, and it didn’t leave us the whole day. There’s a lot of boat-traffic in the island, but you won’t see any in 7 Stones, which adds to the quiet. The staff? 10/10, absolutely! They were so polite, kind, and helpful. They helped us with everything, from booking private island hopping tours to having extra sunbeds at our balcony. I will recommend this, 100%!”

4) John K, rated us 5 stars

7stones private beach

Straight from Estonia, here’s what John has to say about our peaceful little place in Boracay.

“If you’re looking for quiet evenings in Boracay, this is the hotel for you. From the moment we arrived, until trip’s end a week later, everything was perfect. Great, friendly service from all the staff, rooms serviced every day, shuttles upon request… it’s great.”

We’re all about that good service, of course.

“Never was there any threat of danger, and you can kitesurf just a few meters away. They serve meals on the beach, and it’s all very romantic with the live music and flickering candles. It’s a great place to watch the sunrise. Breakfast, no words, hands down perfect, I will certainly stay here again!”

5) Delnmanda, Rated 5 Stars

7stones boracay

Delnmanda enjoyed a stay with us in April 2016, and let her tell you why.

“From check-in to check-out, everything was amazing. The steak nights and curry nights in 7th Note Cafe, the amazing bar staff, a gorgeous suite, my own Jacuzzi bath and shower, WiFi everywhere, and just a few steps out to their beautiful beachfront, on the quiet side of the island. Would highly recommend staying here.”

Oh, and she asks that you check out the junior suites, for couples.

How to Choose Your Boracay Honeymoon Hotel

How to Choose Your Boracay Honeymoon Hotel

Honeymoons are always special, wonderful affairs. It’s when a couple, giddy with the afterglow of their wedding, come to a private, secluded spot that they can call their own to consummate their marriage and take the time to relax after the rigors of planning a huge wedding.

Boracay is a great destination for honeymoons. Filled to the brim with exciting activities, sights, cuisine and people, Boracay is a prime destination for tourists and honeymooners alike. Of course, when you’re on your honeymoon, skimping on accommodations is probably the last thing you’ll ever think of. Just think: would you let your significant other stay at a hostel on your honeymoon night? Here’s a quick guide from 7Stones Boracay on how to choose the perfect Boracay honeymoon hotel.

1. Great Rooms

guest rooms

You’ll be spending a lot of time in your room, so it’s always a good bet to get the best room – or suite – possible.

On our end, our Deluxe Suite is the best choice for you honeymooners. In it, you get a wonderful view of the sea, as well as other awesome amenities: a deluxe, king-sized bed, an en-suite bathroom and Jacuzzi, a large lounge, a dining area, and a fully-equipped kitchen for you and your beau to play house in!

2. Excellent Amenities

front office

If you’re gonna choose a hotel, you have to make sure that there’s more to it than just the rooms. You also have to look for awesome amenities you can do on the side too!

Here at 7Stones Boracay, we make sure you’re pampered, from head to toe. We have security personnel roving around 24/7 for your safety, a 24-hour concierge to cater to your needs (room service is not 24/7). We come to your room every day to fix it up, no need to lift a finger.

Need a pool? We have one; and a Jacuzzi, too! WiFi? Your signal bar won’t go down past full here, even when you’re on the beach. Feeling a bit tired from running around all day? Call our concierge for an in-room massage! And you won’t need to worry about your health here, as we have a doctor and nurse on-call, 24 hours a day!

3. Yummy Food

Food is an important part of honeymoons, of course. For a week-long (or month-long) celebration of loving and living, indulging in the finest gourmet treats is a no-brainer. Why deprive yourself of the better things in life?

Besides being known for being TripAdvisors’ favourite Boracay hotel, we also house in our walls 7th Note Cafe, one of Boracay’s best restaurants. Enjoy succulent food paired with the best wines on the island. We’re particularly happy about our Steak & Burgundy Nights, done every Friday and Saturday, where we show off our prime aged steaks, cooked to your standards of perfection and served with generous portions of your choice of side. Oh, and you can have it delivered to your room, if that’s your thing!

4. Excellent Service

excellent service

It’s your honeymoon; you deserve to be treated like royalty. And that’s exactly how our staff sees you! No request too big or too small, we’re ready to move at your behest. Want an extra sunbed on your balcony? No worries, we’re on our way. Want to enjoy your dinner by candlelight, and near the shore? We’ve already set up the table for you. Want a bonfire for you and your significant other tonight? Sure, the wood’s ready!

Whatever you need, here at 7Stones Boracay, you’ll get. If you want to be truly relaxed on your honeymoon, look no further than us: we’re happy to host you.

7Stones Boracay Wins TripAdvisor’s 2016 Travellers’ Choice Award

7stones 5 star

Once again, 7Stones Boracay received the prestigious 2016 Travellers’ Choice award given by world-renowned travel site, TripAdvisor.

7Stones Boracay, a secluded and elegant Boracay beach resort along Bulabog Beach, was awarded the title in January this year. The prestigious award recognized the beach resort as part of the 1% of the best hotels on TripAdvisor. Now on its 14th year, the Travellers’ Choice Award is based on reviews of millions of travellers around the world.

Some of the standout reviews earned by 7Stones Boracay came from its first-time guests from various countries. They were surprised and enamored by the rooftop view deck, especially during sunrise, the top-of-the line facilities, warmth and world-class service of the staff, and the unforgettable dining experiences at 7th Note Cafe—the hotel’s signature restaurant.

The guests also commended the tranquility of the location, as it is adjacent to the party central that is White Beach. Besides the serenity, this Boracay hotel is located at the most active side of the island.

4 Things To Consider When Scouting Venues for Important Business Meetings

4 Things To Consider When Scouting Venues for Important Business Meetings

4 things to consider

In any business, pursuing a potential client is always a challenge. Once you’ve found your client, the next step is to discover their specific need. Preliminary meetings and coordination generally consist of emails, phone calls, and the occasional visit to their office. For certain industries, this can be an exciting experience.

I remember being tasked with looking for a venue for an important business meeting for a high profile prospect with our marketing team. Being a back office staff, I needed to support the company’s goal of bagging the deal. Was I successful? I was! But how did I do it?

Client Profile
It is important to know our client’s preferences and life style. When meeting high profile prospects, we need to source a venue that the client will find interesting. It does not matter if he considers our presentation a second priority. What matters is that he agrees to come!

Venue Accessibility
The chosen venue should be accessible by various means of transportation – air, sea, or land. Though high profile client prospects generally travel with their own plane or yacht, they would surely appreciate having a safe and proper area to land or dock on. If they opt to take commercial planes, the venue should have shuttle services to ferry clients to and from the airport.

Venue Ambience and Comfort
The chosen venue should exude an atmosphere of safety, comfort, and ease. Venues with breathtaking sceneries encourage creativity and focus. The venue should be supported by hospitable staff whose sole purpose is to provide their guests with the highest level of courtesy and service.

Venue Food and Facilities
From breakfast to a midnight repast, the venue should have adequate dining facilities and a menu to look forward to. Do remember that work hours take up only a third of a day. Another third is spent resting, thus, room accommodations should be comfy, secure, and cosy. The rooms should be enticing enough that the guest will want to linger and perhaps return for a longer stay.
My years of work taught me that the best places are always those which cater specifically for vacations. But what makes them unique is that they also possess facilities for quiet and focused business meetings. So, have you visited 7 Stones Boracay? You should!

Boracay Island: Top Destination For Relaxation

If you want to have a perfect time for relaxation, go to Boracay in Aklan in the Philippines as it has been chosen as the number one destination for relaxation for 2013.

The year may have only started. But when Agoda.com, an online booking site, launched a survey among its clients to find out the best relaxation place, the Boracay island resort emerged at the top spot when the results were released last January 3.

Boracay Top Destination

The clients of Agoda were asked to give their opinion as which places are the best for relaxation and for nightlife. After their vacation, over 113,000 respondents indicated their ratings based on a scale of 1 to 5 with five being the highest.

The results revealed that Boracay is at Number 1 for Relaxation and is at Number 3 for Nightlife. Other places that made it to the top 10 best places for relaxation are Bali Indonesia; Koh Samui, Thailand; Chiang Mai, Thailand; Cameron Highlands, Malaysia; Krabi, Thailand; Langkawi, Malaysia; Hua Hin, Thailand; and Dubai in the United Arad Emirates.

On the other hand, Bangkok, Thailand; Dubai, UAE; Boracay, Philippines; Pattaya, Thailand; Tokyo, Japan; Phuket, Thailand; Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR), China; Macau SAR, China; Thaipei, Taiwan; and Bali, Indonesia made it to the list of the top places for nightlife.

This comes as no wonder for people because Boracay continues to be very popular among tourists all over the world. There have already been 1 million tourists who have arrived in Boracay since last year. Furthermore, a giant cruise ship already docked off the shore of Boracay and brought tourists to its white sandy beaches last year.

Boracay: World’s 5th Most Romantic Island Destination

Boracay: World’s 5th Most Romantic Island Destination

Just in time for the celebration of Valentine’s Day, Travel+Leisure Magazine has once again released the results of a survey it has conducted among its followers, readers and users.

Asked about what they consider the best and most romantic island destinations in the world, Boracay emerged as the 5th Top Most Romantic Island Destination. Thanks to its Boracay Beach Resorts and Hotels!

According to T+L, “Once a backpacking haven with only the most basic accommodations, this 5-mile-long island now rivals better-known Asian destinations such as Phuket and Koh Samui, Thailand. A 45-minute flight from Manila brings you to either Kalibo or Caticlan, where boats connect directly to White Beach, whose powdery sand may just be the softest in the world.”

BORACAY is an island off the coast of Caticlan in the western Philippines, particularly in the province of Aklan.

Among the featured favorites in Boracay include the Spa and Villas, yoga classes of the resort, as well as cliffside pool villa, and the massage services by the traditional Filipino “hilot” or masseuse.

Now, every resort and hotel in Boracay Island, along with the government and its people, is proud to have this distinction for the island. It will continue to strengthen its tourism campaign to invite even more tourists to flock to the island.

It can even be noted that last year, a giant cruise liner already docked near the shores of Boracay bringing in more tourists from around the world for a few hours.

Other places that made it to the list of T+L are Bora-Bora, French Polynesia, Capri, Italy, Santorini, Greece, Kauai, Hawaii, Boracay, Philippines, Maldives, Maui, Moorea,Tahiti, Vieques, Puerto Rico, Bali, Grenadines, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Lanai, Hawaii, Anguilla, Huahine, French Polynesia, Fiji, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin, Islands, Great Barrier Reef, Australia, St. Bart’s, French West Indies, to name a few.
