If you’re traveling with a slightly smaller group and don’t need an entire villa, but still want a luxurious experience, this place has 3-bedroom luxury apartments worth considering.

This unit is a luxurious and spacious 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom penthouse suite. It comes with two full kitchens handy for entertaining, floor-to-ceiling windows all around – for great uninterrupted views of the ocean, and a swimming pool decorated with Balinese-inspired sculptures.

The Best 5 Star Resorts in Station 1
Most of the luxury resorts along White Beach are located in the north part of Station 1, where the beach is at its most quiet and serene. Many of the resorts in that area have lots of space around their vicinity in comparison to places in other areas.
Discovery Shores is a stylish luxury resort. They’re very good at using lights to create a beautiful evening atmosphere, and they have the best most attentive service of all places listed here. Its beachfront is spacious and located in a quiet area. This is my number 1 luxury pick.
Fridays is a tropical style luxury resort built with lots of wood and bamboo materials. Its beachfront is also spacious and located in a quiet area. It’s a good choice if you like to experience luxury in a more native rustic setting.
If you like to experience luxury close to the center then Astoria Boracay is the best choice. It’s located right in between the more lively and quiet part of Station 1. So you can experience the best of both worlds without having to walk very far.
