Astoria Current: The Best Spot for Your Boracay Staycation

An array of great food, a rooftop bar, two gorgeous pools, a fitness center, and a spa, all tucked in one location adjacent to the Boracay beachfront makes Astoria Current the perfect spot for long weekend getaways

Long weekends are probably just one of the many excuses—burnout and boredom from the big city aside—why you decide to jet off to another town and find solace. There’s something about these weekends that scream beach, margarita, and coconuts.

When these rare moments come, you may be feeling the urge to take your chance to get some downtime elsewhere. Fortunately for you, Boracay is simply a flight away and there you will find Astoria Current, where you can have a tropical weekend with family and amigos or amigas. Located at the heart of Station 3, the resort’s relaxation facilities are sure to excite you as you enjoy the seaside attractions abounding the stretch of Malay island.

A gastronomic surprise

Parasol is a hidden all-day dining gem tucked in Astoria Current. Parasol prides itself on its diverse selection of crowd favorites—like buffalo chicken wings, sizzling pork sisig, and angus beef slider—and other continental dishes on its a la carte menu and buffet bar. Of course, your unique dining experience at Parasol won’t be complete without a boodle fight. You can choose to dine inside the spacious indoor area that is elegantly designed with yellow and blue accents, or feel the breeze outside accompanied by a view of Boracay’s white sand and clear blue waters.

A culinary adventure

A well-loved choice for guests who want to enjoy their food in a more private setting, Astoria Current’s Citrine offers a distinct romantic allure with its dimly-lit dining room and global flavors prepared with high-quality ingredients. Coupling your a la carte meals is a wide range of wines, whiskey, liqueurs, and vodka. If you prefer cocktails and other mixologies, you can come by the bar to watch your drink being shaken in front of you. Non-alcoholic drinkers may also opt for fresh fruit shake, soda, coffee, tea, and hot cocoa.

The after-party

Should you want to continue the affair after dinner, drop by Stratos at Astoria Current—a rooftop bar with a panoramic view of Malay island’s beautiful beach. It is a fan-favorite spot for watching sunsets, skipping a wild night out for more relaxed nightcaps, and even popping the big question under the stars. With enough space to accommodate up to 100 guests, you can bring the whole family along. Just inform the staff ahead of time, so they can arrange the venue for private parties.

An out-of-town soiree

Some celebrations are best enjoyed away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Fortunately, Astoria Current boasts function rooms that can be used for hosting large social events like debuts, weddings, and gender reveal parties. These versatile spaces can also double as venues for any out-of-town event you could possibly think of.
