The Lind is a luxurious beachfront hotel that’s located in the northern part of Station 1, the most quiet and peaceful part of Boracay’s White Beach. In this review I’ll cover the place in detail…
Among other topics, I’ll discuss its main charms, its location details, its highlight worthy amenities, the best rooms, how to contact them, plus I’ll also cover both its pros and cons.
Once read you should have a very good idea of what to expect, and if it’s the right place to stay for you.
About The Lind & Its Location
The Lind in the north of Station 1 is a short walk away from to Willy’s Rock. This north of White Beach is home to many luxury resorts, partly due to its expansive beach area, allowing space for elaborate resorts. The Lind takes great advantage of this location with its rooftop infinity pool, popular for its views of the ocean.
The resort has contemporary yet luxurious décor, with amenities such as a spa center, gym, and spacious rooms with balconies that offer relaxing views. There are also three in-house restaurants and bars, which serve everything from international cuisine, pizza, to tapas and cocktails.
One thing to note is the lack of budget-friendly restaurants and stores in the area, since this is the luxury side of Boracay. So be ready to pay a pretty penny for sodas and other small items on your day at the beach. You can always visit the main road or D’Mall for more affordable grocery stores and restaurants, though.
- Beautiful-beachfront location
- Infinity pool, spa, gym & kids club
- Spacious, well-decorated rooms with views
- Relatively far away from budget restaurants and D’Mall, though still walkable
The walking distances from The Lind to different points of interests are: 20 minutes to D’Mall and Station 2, and 40 minutes to Station 3.
Highlight Worthy Amenities
One of the main highlights at The Lind Boracay is its iconic rooftop infinity pool, which gives you amazing views out to sea over gently swaying coconut trees. It’s not the hotel’s only pool either. There’s also a lap pool, children’s pool and a jacuzzi at the beach level.
The rooms amenities are also worth a mention. Every room has a spacious balcony with seating, and views that overlook either the garden, the pool, or White Beach. Some higher-end rooms also have their own pools, giving you a private oasis to cool off in on a hot day.
The Lind also has a spa center, and you can choose to enjoy your massage or treatment in the spa itself, by the pool, or in the comfort of your own room. The well-equipped fitness center is open from 6am – 10pm.
My Top 3 Room Recommendations
If you want to experience a stay at The Lind without a huge price tag, consider the Garden Rooms. These rooms are tastefully decorated, and you can enjoy views of the garden from the balcony.
For a stay with good sea views, see the aptly named Beach Rooms. Each room comes with a balcony directly facing the beach, so you can enjoy sunset views from your room every day. If you’re a fan of long, relaxing baths, this is a good choice as Beach Rooms come with a bathtub.
If you’re looking for a luxurious and romantic stay, the Sea Room with pool is a good pick. The highlight of this spacious suite is the large balcony, with a dipping pool of its own. There, you can lounge or get a massage on the daybed, and enjoy panoramic views over the ocean.
What Guests Say & My Take
At the time of writing, The Lind Boracay is rated 9 on Agoda, 9.2 on Booking.com and 4.5 out of 5 on TripAdvisor. Relative to most resorts, that’s an extremely high rating.
Personally, I feel that The Lind is a good pick for a luxury stay that’s still within walking distance of the center of Boracay. Its beachfront location in Station 1 is beautiful and serene, and the infinity pool is a great extra.
