Alta Visa de Boracay Offers A Different Side To Paradise

January 14, 2010

The island of Boracay is one year-round island destination that locals and foreigners can hie off to whenever they wish, whether it's a weekend jaunt or a summer getaway that can only do so much to provide them respite from the stress or urban life.

Amidst this paradise, another gem has emerged as a premier destination to outshine the other resort spots around the island. Alta Vista de Boracay is now the biggest resort in the island, offering 500 rooms within a splendid location that is accessible to not just one, but three beaches: the vibrant White Beach, the Puka Beach, and Punta Bunga near Club Panoly.

Its unique and charming 4-hectare hillside location in Brgy. Yapak likewise brings new island experience to guests. The amazing nature views from the elevated location, privacy and exclusivity, and cooler weather all worked together to make their stay extra special than the usual Boracay experience. In effect, it's another facet to the island paradise: the Alta Vista de Boracay experience.

A condotel project by Triple A builder and developer DMCI Homes which was completed last year, the resort gradually attracted its own niche of hotel guests, who are seeking the serenity of old Boracay. Operations went full blast after March last year, when all 17 buildings were completed.

To further improve the hotel service, DMCI launched late last year a wholly-owned subsidiary, called DMCI PDI Hotels, Inc., to manage the hotel operations of Alta Vista de Boracay

Reynaldo C. Salazar, DMCI Homes Director for Business Development and concurrent President of DMCI PDI Hotels, said that the company deemed it would be more advantageous for them to operate Alta Vista de Boracay in response to the evolving needs and demands of the tourist market of this popular beach destination.

Salazar pointed out that their development presents tourists with the best of both worlds. Detached from the commercial establishments along the more vibrant White Beach, guests here can relax in private solitude and enjoy the essence of the island as a tranquil vacation paradise. But in case they want to see sights or discover the leisure offerings of the island, they can simply request to be ferried to White Beach.

This is all part of the "Alta Vista experience" where guests' needs are attended to throughout their stay - from the time they land in the airport, until they ride the flight back home. All their needs will be accommodated, such as arranging tours and watersports activities.

In anticipation of a growing client base of leisure seekers, DMCI PDI Hotels is also improving the facilities of Alta Vista de Boracay to provide more options and better standards for guests. They have opened additional food & beverage outlets, and putting in more tourist facilities such as a gym, game room, meeting rooms, and other amenities. This January, initiatives to become a wellness resort will be put into place, as they plan of using organic soaps and shampoos as a standard room bathroom fixtures, and offering mud baths and natural beauty treatments at their spa. Alta Vista will also vie to become a medical tourism destination, Salazar said.

Alta Vista de Boracay is not only a resort exclusively for seasoned travelers but to the business travelers as well. "We are working on a tie-up with Ecoville Convention Center, which can house as many 3,000 delegates. This is leading to our objective of attracting corporate accounts and the Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Events or MICE market," Salazar noted. They have likewise started linking with other resorts in White Beach that can provide access to their guests, and preparing to put up a more exclusive facility in Puka Beach.

As the hotel with the biggest number of rooms in the island, Alta Vista de Boracay is raring to establish its hotel as one of the premier resort hotel in Boracay. Under DMCI PDI Hotels, Salazar said they are challenged to become more competitive and take advantage of their opportunities to prove to the market that they are just as adept at taking care of DMCI Homes residents as the hotel guests of Alta Vista de Boracay.

"I believe that will be our edge as a new company. We have always taken it upon ourselves to treat the residents of our communities as family. With a hotel like Alta Vista de Boracay following that thrust, every guest is sure to feel right at home," he added.
