Astoria Current: Boracay’s Hidden Paradise

Here we go (again!)

It is my second time in Boracay and I was just in awe when I saw Astoria Current for the first time. What I like most about traveling is either staying in a place where it brings out the adventurous in you or it makes you feel like a king or queen. It is one of the things I always look forward to whenever I travel.

Boracay offers not just that fine white sand, warm hospitality, and that picture-perfect sunset but it also offers numerous and a wide range (and posh) of accommodations with different perks that suits almost everyone’s taste.

It is my second time in Boracay and still the feeling of excitement never leaves me whenever I hear something about the place. (Come on, it’s one of the best party islands in the world!)

It is also my first time to travel alone on the island with no definite plans whatsoever. I just really want to enjoy what Boracay really is, the simplest way possible.

What brought me back to this island is a blog post which I wrote about this year’s “LaBoracay.” In exchange, all participating bloggers-slash-travelers were given perks in staying in a hotel on the island for free!

When our coordinator, Ms. Jules Veloso, told us about this, I immediately got excited because I would be back in Boracay after a year and a half (and this time, with free accommodation – and alone at that!)

Anyway, with that much said, I would be reviewing the hotel where I stayed for the past days.

Astoria Current: Luxe, Incomparable, Spectacular

Located in Station 3, Astoria Current is one of the two hotels of Astoria in Boracay (the main Astoria Hotel is located somewhere in Station 1). For everyone’s information, I am a Hospitality and Tourism Management graduate and I know how a hotel operates and should look like.

Astoria Current exceeded my expectations. Aside from my first expectation of the hotel is “grand,” its atrium design just fascinated me because it welcomed me with a beautiful view of the pool that served as the hotel’s centerpiece.

Everywhere you look at, the hotel is bright as it is colored white from its exteriors to the rooms interior color. The hotel also has a minimalist approach, from its furniture, wall decors, and even the table counters.

What I love about Astoria Current is that despite its name, the overall hotel design remains simple and it is light to look in the eye.

When I arrived in Astoria for my stay in Boracay, the staff who accompanied me offered me with a welcome drink and even assisted me to my room and told showed me the different amenities found inside my room. (Talk about Filipino hospitality.)

The room is also spacious and well-lit. Blinds are also readily available whenever you need extra privacy. The room also has an air-conditioning facility although the temperature was a bit cold and I don’t know how to operate it (either the controls are found somewhere or it is just really automatic.) It also has a comfy counter top, a flat-screen television, and a dresser table.

Boracay’s Hidden Paradise

Astoria is only one of the numerous accommodations that can be found in Boracay. What makes Astoria one of the best in the island is that everything you’ll need is probably there.

When I also arrived, I was surprised because they even gave me a complimentary “welcome cake” for my stay in Astoria Current.

Lucky am I because even though my stay in Astoria was for free, the view from my room was just stunning. From my veranda, I had a beautiful view of the pool below and the open sky which makes its open atrium one-of-a-kind, although is it the typical design of almost all the hotels in Boracay.

Their breakfast is also hearty as it features many food choices, be it Continental, American, or Filipino. The interiors of the restaurant are also eye-striking and the lights just play with the intricately-designed walls and delicately adorned columns and spaces.

As the hotel is also located along the shores of Station 3, the hotel can be easily seen while strolling along the White Beach.

Verdict: 9/10

Overall, my experience in Astoria Current is just surreal. I never experienced such hospitality before and all the staff is just friendly and ever-ready to cater to your needs. All of them wear smiles whenever you pass by then and the ambiance of the hotel is really homey. The location, too, is strategic as it is located beachfront. Room rates may be a bit pricey but you will really get what you pay, even more than what you expect. I would definitely want to stay in Astoria Current again whenever I have the chance to visit Boracay for the Nth time.

Astoria Current Welcome Letter to Turista Boy

Although their Wi-Fi connection may be faulty at times, I think it is the best time to explore what the hotel (and the island) has to offer, especially when you’re on foot, or when riding their local tricycles at the Main Road. As a whole, Astoria Current should be your choice of accommodation whenever visiting the island. It is your home in Boracay.

Hope this would not be my last visit! 🙂

    I love the welcome cake and how hospitable they are. Looking at the pictures, I guess, the room and accommodation are really nice. Haven’t been to Boracay because I don’t enjoy seeing a bunch of people. But I will surely visit some day.

    How’s Astoria Current’s room rates? Are they as expensive as the Astoria in station 1? I’m planning to go solo in Boracay, but I don’t know if it’s sulit Or nah. 🙂
