One week ahead of the Holy Week, Boracay resorts and hotels again experience the hectic scene that comes to the resort-island every year: fully booked rooms and accommodations.
Boracay Foundation Inc. President Jony Salme advises that, as of the beginning of April, all resorts on the island have been fully booked by travellers who made advanced reservations with beach hotels and resorts as early as November.
According to Salme, local and foreign tourists may have difficultly finding their desired Boracay accommodations during the high season of the Holy Week. But Salme suggested that they may take up rooms offered for rent by the island locals, who convert their extra rooms as lodging for travellers unable to secure a base during high seasons.
When is the best time to book accommodation for Holy Week?
Boracay tourists are advised to book their accommodation as far ahead as six months in order to avoid disappointment. This is especially necessary during peak seasons, such as Holy Week, summer, and Christmas.
Resort-island Boracay throbs with local celebrities during the Holy Week, making this season highly favoured by local travellers who want to spot stars on the prestigious beach island. Foreign visitors also start to flock to the famous island from the first week of April until the end of the summer season in early July.
Aware of the increase in visits spurred by the holidays, the Boracay Tourist Assistance Center, together with the local police, is actively operational to ensure the safe vacation of tourists during the summer peak season commencing the Holy Week.
