Asya Premier Suites - a new discovery in Boracay

During our stay in Boracay, we allotted one day looking for ideal wedding venues or receptions on the island. We had seen Discovery Shores and Shangrila - Boracay at Station 1 the day before, today we are headed for another top wedding venue..... ASYA PREMIER SUITES. It is a high-end resort which boasts of " having all the luxuries of a five-star hotel and the charming intimacy of boutique lodging ".

ASYA PREMIER SUITES is one of the newest 5-star hotels that is located atop a hill overlooking the sea at the southern tip of the island close to Station 3..... far away from the maddening crowd..... but very accessible via a hired tricycle or walking by the White Beach. It has 20 suites ( 4 presidential suites and 16 premier suites ) overlooking the pool.

We took a tricycle from D' Mall to Asya Premier Suites which was approximately 20 minutes -- traveling thru small roads, passing the pier and several barangays... I was beginning to get impatient because of the long ride then suddenly -- we were infront of a gate which had a sign-- Asya Premier Suites... I was a bit apprehensive thinking that they would not allow walk-ins to the area... Iggy, my son told the guard we wanted to eat at PALAY ( that is their main restaurant ).. and to my surprise--  we were allowed to enter.

We entered a grand driveway, a Zen-like fountain greeted us. As we alighted from our tricycle and headed for the reception area... We told them --- we wanted to talk to their F & B manager, because we were looking for a wedding venue site next year. Jaren, their manager, gladly showed us around --- I did not waste any time, took out my camera and started taking photos of the place...

These are photos of the second level of Asya Premier Suites...  looks like a perfect place for what we had in mind... can you imagine having a wedding reception here by the poolside at sunset!!

We went down to the 3rd level ... this was where they had their main restaurant... PALAY... it is an al fresco dining area... The time we went was almost noon and this area was very hot and humid. They turned on some of the fans above to cool down the place a bit.

Since it was lunch time and we were famished.... we decided to have our lunch at Palay. Here was what we had..

Quattro formaggio pizza -

Chicken Nuggets for little Una  --

and Greek Salad with Chicken --

After lunch, Jaren showed us other function rooms on this level --

We went down the last flight of stairs to the beach front... Right in front of Asya Premier Suites, there are no crowds on the beach unlike the other Stations.... in fact... we were the only ones that day... on one corner of the cove was this set of beach chairs and on the other end was a parked sailboat. The beach landscape was just awesome!! I thought all the time that Station 3 had less fine sand compared to the other stations in the island... I was wrong!!! I found out from Jaren, the hotel does not have a lot of walk-ins especially at sunset... most of the people you will get to see on the beach are their clients.

Isn't Asya Premier Suites just perfect for your wedding reception on your big day????

I was not able to get any shots of the rooms because we were more interested on the wedding venue rather than the rooms.

Their staff was very friendly and accommodating, the food we ate that day was very good!! Seeing all those steps we had to climb to get to the top--- Jaren offered to drive us on the golf cart back to the reception area were we hired one of its vans to bring us back to Elizalde.

Yes, the place is expensive... I think it is the most expensive hotel in the island -- but... for me this is the best resort in Boracay.
