Pinjalo Resort Villas, Boracay Island

For the Nth time I am in Boracay again! For the first half of my stay in Boracay (March 16-18, 2019) I stayed in Pinjalo Resort Villas together with my friends. Busy is not yet with me during our stay, but he was with me in the second half of my Boracay 2019 visit.

Pinjalo Resort Villas Boracay Resort review and blog of Happy and Busy Travels

Pinjalo Resort Villas is just a minute away from the white beach, and several establishments including restaurants, and shopping areas. Inside the resort is the luscious forest inspired garden that gives the visitors a nature feeling while inside the resort. Who would’ve thought that there is a forest just a few minutes away from the beach? Rooms in the resort were spacious, well planned, and decorated. A restaurant also serves food for the guest especially for breakfast. Finally, they have a pool which visitors can use to refresh. Pinjalo Resort Villas and Nigi Nigi Beach Resort has the same owners, that’s why you can see some similarities in the decorations.

Checking in

The resort is well known to the residents of Boracay so we just told the tricycle to take us to Pinjalo Resort Villas and we were brought here, the entrance is just beside the road. It doesn’t look that much outside but inside, there is a lot!

Bedroom

Just right from the exterior of the room, I immediately thought that the room will look good.

Comfort Room

We were amazed how big is the comfort room! We could even have a party inside! 😆 Complimentary toiletries such as shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, and soap were available.

Pinjalo Resort Villas Boracay Resort review and blog of Happy and Busy Travels

The toilet bowl was also perfect because there is a bidet! 😆

My favorite place in the comfort room is the shower area. It’s so cool!

Veranda

The veranda is a nice addition to the room. If you want to feel nature, just go out of your room, and chill by the veranda which is surrounded by a lot of plants.

Pinjalo Resort Villas Boracay Resort review and blog of Happy and Busy Travels

A drying rod was also added in the veranda for your wet clothes.

Garden

Pinjalo Resort is surrounded by a lot of plants, making it look like we are in another place in Boracay. It’s like we went inside a hole, and BOOM! we were instantly in another place!

Pinjalo Resort Villas Boracay Resort review and blog of Happy and Busy Travels

This Yin-Yang inspired garden was the center point of the resort.

This door leads to nowhere, but they made the effort to decorate the blank wall to make it look interesting.

Happy and Busy’s Smileys

Cleanliness


The staff of the hotel did a great job keeping the resort clean! Our rooms were cleaned upon our request. We also noticed that our comfort room was well maintained, considering that it was all white, it can be hard to keep it clean. Dead leaves were always swept, so you can’t find it in your path.

 

Facilities


Even though the resort is not in-front of the beach, it was okay. The resort has a pool, and a restaurant inside. The staff can also arrange massage, tours, and airport transfers upon request.

Service


We were immediately entertained during our check in. Our breakfast were always immediately served. The staff were all smiling while in the resort, it was a plus for me!

 

Value for money


Everything was worth it!

 

Location 


The resort is located just a minute away from the beach and other establishments. Plus tricycles can easily stop by the front of the resort, we do not need to walk far.

 

Ambiance 


Can I add more smileys? 🙂 I really did not expect that I will have a different experience in the resort. I was like in another place, other than Boracay. The trees and plants inside the resort completed the ambiance.

 

Food 


I love how did they cook our breakfast. It was delicious and serving is a lot!

 

 

Here is a short video of the whole resort. I hope we can be back soon! 🙂

    I have always wanted to visit Boracay. It is so beautiful in pictures, and I am sure it looks even better in person. Thanks for your review of the Pinjalo Resort Villas. I will bookmark it for future reference.
  • What a nice place. The prices are affordable too. Man, I want to go back there ASAP! Especially after the clean-up
    • Happy and Busy
      Oh yes you have to re-visit Boracay!

    I haven't been to Boracay yet, but my children (all grown ups) frequent the island. I hope someday, when my health is better, I will be able to go there. The resort looks lovely and well kept. If I get to find myself in Boracay one day, I will definitely choose to stay at the Pinjalo Resort Villas.
  • Looks amazing. The balcony and the grounds look enticing. The menu looks yummy and that glass of fresh fruit juice super yummy. Seems simple but clean and welcoming.
  • The villa looks amazing. So many great things to see and do while you are out there. I love the art and style they have there. And the food looks amazing. I would love to go.
  • I am happy to see that Boracay is making a nice recovery after being closed for infrastructure improvements.
  • wow, these look like wonderful villas for a nice relaxing holiday! I will have to go here one day
  • Believe it or not, I've never been to Boracay Island! I love the ambiance of Pinjalo Resort. I actually prefer an accommodation that is not too near the beach. I think it's more peaceful and safer. I'll definitely consider this when I go to Boracay!
    • Happy and Busy
      Really!!! You should visit the island soon!
