3-5-7 Boracay is a well-equipped 600 square-meter resort facility at Station 3 of Boracay Island in Kalibo, Aklan.
Upon reaching the resort, you may have an odd feeling about its pink and white facade and its concrete construction, but its charm will definitely be felt when you enter any of its 10 well-appointed rooms (executive, family or suite classifications). Each of them excudes the warmth of tropical island luxury while also underscoring the comfort of modern living. Bamboo, fine abaca, local weaves and other native materials are used to achieve tasteful interior decoration while air-conditioning, cable TV and hit running water plus a stand-by generator complete the excellent experience.
3-5-7 Resort offers aquasport activities such as diving, snorkeling, wind surfing and parasailing. An island hopping tour and a one-hour banana boat ride is usually given free with accommodation packages.
The resort’s corporate membership to the prestigious Fairways and Bluewater Golf Club also allow access to guests who might want to tee off at the greens. Any fees incurred however, are charge to the accounts of visiting golfers and guests.
The resort also has its own bar/restaurant, which serves Filipino and International cuisine. Foreign guests might find the prices quite reasonable, but local tourists might find them a bit steep. A house specialty is the Fish and Chips, with the fish cutlets cooked as fresh as the day they were caught. The resort owner, a past franchiser holder of a popular pancake house, takes pride in the resort’s pancake since the 3-5-7 chef had been with him since the franchise days.
A particular standout that the resort offers is its second-story veranda from which a romantic dining experience may be enjoyed.
