The 7 Stones of Boracay

Finding true love could take some time
but finding stones could take just a day.

That’s what I learned from my recent holiday vacation in this new and beguiling resort in Bulabog. Unbeknown to everybody, there are seven stones scattered all over the place. The quest is easy - you just have to find and gather them one by one.

The first stone I found is the stone of opulence. A Fuego boutique hotel and resort simply implies luxury. The villas, the pool, and the Jacuzzi are all exquisite and of immense beauty. Each villa actually costs more than my annual salary for the next 20 years of my life.

The second stone I found is the stone of seclusion. Away from the overcrowded White Beach, the resort offers privacy and solitude far from the madding crowd.

The third stone I found is the stone of adventure. For its consistent strong wind and shallow water all-year round, the Bulabog beachfront is always a busy action scene of wind surfing and kite boarding adventure.

The fourth stone I found is the stone of sweetness. The food of 7th Note Cafe is delectable. And explosion is nothing to be feared of especially if it is their must-try sweet “Chocolate Eruption”.

The fifth stone I found is the stone of love. Even in isolation, with their free wi-fi, you can stay connected with loved ones anywhere in the world.

The sixth stone I found is the stone of quality service. The staffs are friendly, attentive and always wear a smile, more than enough to compensate for the rain.

The seventh stone I found is the stone of luck. The resort’s badge which is inukshuk (an Inuit word for stone structure in the likeness of man) traditionally served as guideposts for travelers letting them know that they were on the right path. True enough, the road leading to the resort is a less travelled but worthwhile one. The number 7 is a lucky number and by sheer luck and a matter of connection, lunch was on them.

Different guests visiting the resort may find different kinds of stones. One may either choose to throw them away or build something special out of them. In my experience, I put them all together like an inukshuk and the outcome is what truly defines 7 Stones – a posh and beautiful home away from home.

It’s good to feel like seven again.
