Accommodation Options

Boracay is separated into 3 main areas:


Station 1: Luxury Resorts available here

Station 2: Nightlife of Boracay, great accommodation options here (and where we will spend a lot of time)

Station 3: The quieter side of the island. The wedding venue is just off from here


The distance between Station 1 and 3 by beach is 2,2km so anywhere you choose to stay should be really accessible.



Boracay has many many hotels, however, through the research we've done depending if you are travelling alone or a group, Air bnb has some fantastic options available.


Below are a few recommendations for Boracay accommodation via AirBnB..

 Accommodation is really reasonable especially if you are sharing an apartment and there are plenty of options available.

The Proposal Story - 24th September 2017

<------------Yes thats us in the moment, in a cloud, on top of a                              volcano, romantic right!

The Journey begins when Mich had told me that she had planned something special for our 5th year anniversary. My body immediately filled with glee at the thought of a Big Mac Meal at the drive thru in Northgate. It became even more overwhelming when she told me I had to take 10 days off work. Big Macs for 10 days. Felt like a dream come true. It was not to be.  

It started off as a normal Tuesday, that would turn out to be the start of a whirlwind of excitement over the next 3 and half weeks. 


That evening while cooking dinner, a whatsapp message from Judy popped up on Mich's phone. In the few seconds that the message was displayed on her phone it revealed to me the destination of the trip that Steve, Judy and Mich had conspired as the surprise.
    The next day at work I could not stop thinking about jetting off to Bali for 10 days. Although I knew nothing about Bali I was super excited and did not look into anything so it would still remain a surprise when we got there. Although already planning to ask Mich to marry me the following year, an idea started to form in my head, what if I surprised her  when she thought she was surprising me. My mind started racing, as now I only had a little over a week to find the right time to ask Joys permission and get Mich's ring size.  


   Asking Joys permission was slightly more nerve wrecking than I would of hoped. The following night Mich was working late,  Joy and myself sat down to have dinner. It was now or never. So I asked. She said yes. The excitement grew as we now had the task of getting Mich`s ring size and finding a ring we liked. Joy got the ring size by means that I thought had given away the plot for sure. We found a ring that we thought was incredible.  We managed to get the ring sized and collected the day before we left.  
    Now what? What happens if they see the ring box in the luggage xrays at the airport and I had to open my bag and reveal what it was. Relieved and very excited we made it to our hotel in Bali without the ring being discovered. I immediately locked the ring in the safe at the hotel while Mich was in the shower. We then headed down to the beach for sun downers and enjoy  our first night in Bali. That night while enjoying the local beers on the beach I felt that would be the perfect time to propose. Guess what? The ring was in the safe in the hotel. I could not leave to fetch the ring with out raising suspicion. It would have to be another time. I had already told Steve and Judy that I had planned to propose and Steve needed to be ready to take pictures.  
    I made sure that ring never left my side or should I say backpack. The box was far to big to carry in my pockets with out being noticed. Of course this came with a whole new set of worries. What if I dropped the ring while we scooted around Bali on our adventures. Apparently the worry was noticeable because Mich asked Judy if she thought I was enjoying myself cause I looked like I was on edge the whole time. A few days passed and there were many times that would of made a great proposal but were just not perfect. Not knowing the itinerary at all because I still wanted the trip to be surprising made it hard to plan a proposal. Then one day I was told we had to go to bed early because we were getting picked up at 2 am to hike up a volcano to watch the sunrise. Imagine how perfect that would be.


    We started the hike at 3 am to get to the top by 05h30 to watch the sunrise. There was not a cloud in the sky and stars where amazing. It started to get light and we could see for miles around. Murphy and his law. As we reached the top and just before the sun crept up the clouds pulled in and we couldn't see anything. I was holding off a bit to see if maybe the clouds would clear but they didn't. Then it occurred to me I was going to propose to the most incredible women I had ever met and it was going to be on top of a volcano in a cloud. Well it couldn't of got any better than that and she never suspected it at all.
