New hotels are sprouting up like mushrooms in what once a wilderness that is Boracay. Admittedly, it used to be an expensive destination but with the rise of affordable accommodations, Boracay has become one of the country’s most visited destinations. Now, the new dilemma of incoming visitors is to find an island oasis within close proximity to the dreamy White Beach, great parties, perfect sunsets and adrenaline pumping water sports – things that Boracay is famous for. Luckily, we stumbled upon Lime Hotel Boracay, a hip and vibrant hotel that sits strategically at the lively Station 2 – where all the fun and action lives.
This 3-star boutique hotel is within 5-minute walk to Boat Station 2 and Talipapa Market. I couldn’t emphasize more how conveniently situated this hotel is. We didn’t have to go through some small and dark alleys which is the situation of most mid-range hotels on the island. After we got off the vehicle on the main street, we climbed up straightaway to the third floor where the reception was. This could be inconvenient for elder guests, PWD or when you carry large baggage but, for younger guests like us, it’s a good way to warm up our legs before going out and about.
We were served with their signature lime juice as welcome drinks while our room was getting tidied up. Not long after, we were taken in to our Deluxe Room which can be accessed either through an elevator or stairs.
Boracay swagger gracefully welcomed us!
The overall theme of our room was vibrant and minimalist at the same time. The white clean walls and neutral colored furniture surprisingly worked with the vibrant accent tones of azure blue and lime green.
Our room was equipped with two double beds in premium bedding, inverter type air-conditioning unit, LED lights, flat-screen TV with satellite channels, double door closet with affixed electronic safe, textured and skid-free ceramic ﬂoor tiles, keycard door-lock set for easy access, sufﬁcient electrical outlets for gadget juicing, and a small desk that doubled as our coffee table for our morning sips before heading out for our complimentary breakfast. The breakfast options can definitely be improved but enough to start the day.
The en-suite bathroom had an overhead rain shower which has a better water pressure than most hotels we’ve stayed in. There is a bidet attached to the toilet and the sink is situated outside the bathroom with the basic toiletries.
We had a balcony overlooking the street leading towards White Beach and a partial view of the sea which alternately served as our drying area. It’s equipped with UV double-glazed argon-infused sliding doors and windows to prevent noise, heat, glare reduction with high impact safety plus a shade and block out roll-down window covers to ensure a good night’s sleep.
The Sky Lounge intelligibly lived up to its name. The charming cocktail bar has plenty of lounge chairs surrounding the jaw dropping infinity pool.
Every afternoon, my husband and I spent some quality time together by the pool enjoying the gorgeous Boracay sunset while sipping cocktails. The sweeping views were our daily self-treats after hustling in with our water adventures.
Lime Hotel’s staffs, especially the receptionists were warm and friendly. Every time we pass by the reception, they always stand up and greet us. Housekeeping staffs were all prompt and eager to fulfill our every request.
One of the things that impressed us the most was the fact that Lime Hotel was built from sustainable materials that does not harm nature and wildlife. The hotel also implemented sustainable practices such as reducing water and energy consumption as well as proper waste management.
Overall, we had a pleasant stay at Lime Hotel Boracay. Clearly, it stood out from the rest thanks to its vibrant contemporary interiors and central location that will win anyone over instantly.
