Where to Stay in the Newcoast Station? Check Out Belmont Hotel Boracay

When Boracay Island opened its door to local tourists last November 15, 2021, without the need for an RT PCR test for fully vaccinated individuals, I took the opportunity to plan and book a flight for our dream beach destination during our holiday break.

As a first-time visitor, planning a trip to Boracay would include a place to stay, eat, and adventure to take. Most travel blogs say something about Stations 1, 2, and 3, and very few articles for Station zero and Newcoast. I decided to stay in Newcoast area for one day, and the remaining four days will be in Station 1.

BORACAY NEWCOAST STATION

The Boracay Newcoast is another must-visit area aside from Stations 1, 2, and 3, where the famous Island is known for its long stretch of white beach, exciting adventure, great food, and night-long parties. It is found on the Eastern side of Boracay Island, facing the Sibuyan Sea. It offers fresh and exciting experiences for the first-timer and returning tourists.

BELMONT HOTEL BORACAY

Belmont Hotel Boracay is a 4-star hotel located inside the Newcoast township and is one of the best hotels in Boracay. It has 442 well-equipped rooms, including six differently-abled rooms. It has an outdoor swimming pool, a restaurant, a fitness center, and a bar.

Part of our unforgettable Boracay experience was at Belmont Hotel Boracay where we spent a relaxing overnight stay. The hotel showed warm hospitality from the first time I set foot at the hotel up to the time we checked out.

During the check-in:

We (me, my husband, my daughter, and my nephew) were all exhausted from the flight, boat ride, and e-trike ride when we arrived at the hotel. Before going inside the hotel lobby, the staff greeted us, took our temperature, sanitized our hands and footwear, and opened the door for us. I liked that they offered us a welcome refreshing drink as if they knew we were thirsty. The reception desk staff, Ms. Ailene was polite and accommodating. She even accompanied us to the waiting area of the hotel to have a complimentary snack and relax as she processed our booking from Agoda.

The hotel’s beach vibe design lobby from floor to ceiling is noticeably attractive. It has cozy corners and is also a guest-oriented space. It is clean and tidy, making it very relaxing to stay for a while.

The Restaurant

Belmont Cafe is a farm-to-table restaurant that uses quality fresh produce as part of the menu to support local farmers in the community and to ensure sustainability. The food selection includes Filipino favorites with a twist and Meditteranean Cuisine-inspired dishes.

Our accommodation booked from Agoda includes a free breakfast buffet at the Belmont Cafe.

We also tried the restaurant specialty like Seared Tuna Salad P 550 – Consisting of mixed greens with olives, cucumbers tomatoes, boiled egg, onion, and slice seared Tuna loin with mustard sauce. The Seared Tuna Salad is very refreshing to eat. The tuna is tender and tasty, while the greens are fresh and crisp Cashew Kare-Kare P 950 Crispy fried Pork belly n cashew bisque and spring vegetables. This creamy and saucy dish uses Cashew nuts instead of the traditional peanuts. Dinakdakan P 380 – Pork belly and masks tossed in a vinegar dressing with minced ginger, onions, and peppers. The serving sizes are good for sharing and all the dishes are served in a very presentable manner.

The Swimming Pool

The outdoor pool was temporarily unavailable during our stay last December 24, 2021. We use the swimming pool at the Savoy Hotel instead. The outdoor pool at the Savoy Hotel is impressive, with very few hotel guests swimming making it safer in this time of the pandemic.

Exclusive Beachfront access:

In a less than 10-minute walk from the hotel, a private white sand beach gave us an awe-inspiring view of nature. We experience a moment of peace by the beach with the sound of waves and a breath of fresh air.

Complimentary activities for in-house guests only

Belmont Hotel has a number of complimentary activities for in-house guests including Kayaking, Paddleboat, Coast Tour, Sunrise viewing at the deck, Yoga, and shuttle service going to D Mall in Station 1.

Belmont Hotel Free Shuttle Service

Overall, we had a very relaxing and enjoyable limited stay at Belmont Hotel Boracay. I wish to spend more time here but, we need to transfer to another hotel in Station 1 for the rest of our vacation to experience another exciting adventure.

Let us all travel safely.

God bless!
