In an ideal world I would write about a hotel close to the time of my stay. But I am so far away from my ideal world that I am writing about The Lind Boracay in Philippines many months later after my stay. I stayed there in October 2016! Other than the pictures, I do not have any other notes about the place. So, what do I remember the most about my stay?
The Lind is located right by the White Beach in Boracay. I could walk out of the hotel and land up right by the beach! I love such places.
The Infinity Pool
I could not take a dip in the pool, maybe because I had the ocean right beyond it but the view from the pool area is stunning. Actually the view from my room too was amazing. I did hang by the pool to enjoy the atmosphere.
A Cozy Place
The Lind manages to strike a balance between being well spread out and cozy. It is not as far spread so that you need to use golf carts or buggies. But at no point do you feel that all guests have bunched into one area. I like cozy places and to me The Lind was one such experience.
A Large and Comfortable Room
I had a sea view room which was elegantly designed. It was large and comfortable too. The view from the balcony got me the infinity pool, the ocean beyond and the large pool on the ground level. I had everything that I needed in my room.
The Lind gets what is vegetarian! They never gave me bland pasta which is what happens frequently with me. They did pizzas, mushrooms, tomatoes and cheese, rice and curry and many such portions for me. I am thankful for that. They make local cocktails at +36 which are pretty exotic.
I would love to go back to The Lind Boracay as it is a cozy place, has excellent location and friendly staff. If you are looking for a chic hotel by the White Beach do consider The Lind!
PS. My trip to Boracay was sponsored by the Philippines Tourism Board!
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
