Fridays Puerto Galera, Inc., owner of Fridays Boquete Beach Resort Hotel at Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro Province, the Philippines, intends to deliver the same consistent, proven resort experience for its visitors. Initially, this 3.8 hectare property shall serve Fridays Boracay’s 30,000 repeat client base, many of whom have already inquired for bookings for friends and family. The architects for this resort listed as their other clients the likes of Anantara Resorts in the Maldives and the Four Seasons Resort at Kuda Hu’ Ra’a Atoll, Maldives.
Wholly-owned Boquete Beach is the best beach in the whole Puerto Galera, according to most visitors and locals. Being the only beach with powdery white & pink sand inside the lagoons of Muelle bay, many guests shuttle from other hotels for day visits, especially during rough sea state. Also the main coral reef barrier for snorkellers, right across the beach is a pleasurable eco-friendly experience.
Muelle bay is listed as one of the most beautiful bays in the world and is considered a national heritage. Since 1979, Puerto Galera is listed as a UNESCO world MAB (Human Reserve of Man and Biosphere) program site.
Expected introductory occupancy and room rates are set at 80% and $180 for the first 20 room. Construction is now on going; and the resort is expected to partially open in March of 2011 to give refreshment of spirit to its international guests.
