Sol Y Sombra Boracay: Your Charming Retreat From A Sunny Beach Day

In the past few years, Boracay has been known as a definite tourist spot. As such, sometimes the places to stay at and hang out feel rather generic. Cookie cutter hotel rooms with no personality don’t appeal to travelers who consider the island their respite. This is why it’s a good idea to find accommodations that will truly help you feel rested.

One of the hotels you can consider to make your next Boracay trip truly memorable is Sol y Sombra Boracay, a charming place which keeps traveler experience in mind.

Stepping into Sol y Sombra

The first thing that strikes you about Sol y Sombra Boracay is that it is beautiful. It is designed with a rustic yet elegant interior of grays and whites. Inspired by the owner’s life in Spain, Sol y Sombra directly translates to Sun and Shade—Sun representing the beach or the island, and Shade representing the comfortable retreat that the hotel offers.

Located a few steps away from White Beach in Station 1, Sol y Sombra is tucked away from the beachfront.

Beautiful, rustic interiors

The room we stayed in, which was the Double Room, was spacious and even suitable for four people. The interior is truly well-executed. It’s such a wonder to see how a few well-chosen decor created very tastefully designed rooms while maintaining simplicity and elegance! It almost makes you wish it was your room back home.

The bed was cozy, and there are more than enough pillows for a good night’s sleep. It’s so thoughtful when a hotel puts more than two pillows on the bed without extra charge.

Take your time to take photos of the room details because everything is very Instagrammable—from the small artworks plastered on the wall to the throw pillows on your bed.
