PLATENO Hotels Group is planning to launch a new luxury resort, the Portofino Ocean’s Edge Resort, in Boracay, in June 2016.
Located on Isla de Carabao, sister beach to Boracay, the resort will be accessible from both Caticlan and Kalibo International Airports via the resort’s own ferry services. Alternatively, a helicopter service is available from Caticlan.
The resort will feature 44 grass-thatched roof villas with spacious private terraces and plunge pools overlooking the horizon. The villas will be ornately furnished with hand-crafted coral stones, dark Philippine mahogany for its wood accents and locally woven fabrics for upholstery.
Amenities will include a clubhouse with reception; restaurant, lounge and bar overlooking the pool; private beach cove with beach bar and jetty, spa and watersports activities including a dive shop.
Isla of Carabao boasts long, secluded beaches with some only accessible by boat, as well as pristine dive sites with crystal-clear water.
