Christmas means different things to different people; a time for family, a time for thanksgiving, a time for fun and parties. On Boracay, it means the busiest time of the year for hotels, restaurants and bars!
Families, friends and couples descend on the island and if you haven’t booked your hotel by the start of October you could spend many frustrating hours, searching the internet, ringing around and trying to find vacancies.
For the most popular hotels and accommodation, such as Boracay Pito Huts and St Vincent Cottages, Christmas, and New Year, bookings really should be made as early as July and August to secure your preferred rooms.
Boracay Pito Huts is a small resort, on the edge of Station 3, with 7 beautifully designed Ifugao-inspired Huts which can accommodate between 2-3 people and up to 5 people with additional mattresses. The dark wood interiors are complemented by crisp, white linens and whilst the Huts don’t have a beach view, it is just a few steps from the entrance of your Hut to White Beach.
Boracay Pito Huts now offers a BBQ for guests use, with guests supplying their own coals and disposable plates and cutlery. Immediately next door to Boracay Pito Huts is Yellow Cab Pizza, which is renowned for its delicious pizza’s and chicken wings.
Boracay Pito Huts also has one Beach House, with a large living area with sofa beds, a terraced balcony overlooking the beach path and White Beach, 2 bedrooms and bathrooms and one large loft room, which can be used as an additional sleeping area. Whilst there is a kitchenette, there are no cooking facilities. The Beach House can accommodate up to 15 people comfortably and is, by far, one of the most popular places to stay on the island. As there is only one Beach House bookings should always be made far in advance of your intended stay date.
St Vincent Cottages, is a great budget hotel at Station 2, which offers double, triple, quad and large family rooms. This hotel is ideal for people and groups who are looking to make the most of their Boracay holiday, whilst keeping costs down, even during one of the most expensive times to visit the island. The rooms offer double beds, private bathrooms and towels and air-conditioning; the basics that are needed for your stay.
Helping to make your pesos go even further, St Vincent Cottages offers a common kitchen and eating area on their ground floor. Guests are welcome to use the common kitchen utensils, plates and cups and a cooking fee applies as follows:- 35php per kilogram of rice or vegetables and 50PHP per kilogram for meat or fish (prices are subject to change, so double check on arrival).
Whilst Boracay Pito Huts is a mid-range Hotel and St Vincent Cottages is a budget hotel, they are equally as popular with returning and new travellers, and so early-bookings are recommended to avoid disappointment.
