3. Shangri-La Resort & Spa, Boracay

Top-notch service is Shangri-La's middle name. Choose from over 200 suites and villas, then be prepared to want an extra night—booking the Tree House Villa, with its sweeping view of Boracay's unrivaled skyline, will ensure you'll never want to leave.


4. Isla Cabana Resort, Siargao

Isla Cabana only wants you to slow down and soak up some sea—a fantastic idea, in our opinion! The resort's long stretch of white sand is unmarred and makes for arguably one of the best beachfronts in the area. Get your surf on, then relax in your very own ensuite jacuzzi right after.

5. Pangulasian Island Resort, El Nido

Also known as the “Island of the Sun,” Pangulasian has breathtaking views of both the sunrise and sunset. There's a marine sanctuary right at its doorstep, by the way; the place prides itself on sustainability and has been proudly dubbed El Nido Resorts’ "eco-luxury" island retreat in Bacuit Bay.

Mactan's got another treat for you! This chic little resort is a tropical hideaway that offers the tranquility of secluded deluxe suites set against the backdrop of a rich tropical oceanfront.


7. Eskaya Beach Resort & Spa, Bohol

Sitting pretty on the southern tip of Bohol, Eskaya is perfect for that secret getaway. There are only 15 villas, all beautifully inspired by traditional Filipino architecture, and most of them come with their very own swimming pools. Gorgeous.

Check into the Thalasso Pool Villa, a veritable cocoon of sheltered elegance. It's easily the finest of Badian's accomodations: the 98 square-meter suite's private pool contains ionized seawater released from a built-in waterfall and is equipped with a swim jet system for the ultimate dip.
