Discovery Shores Boracay embarked on the Ecobrick Project, a multi department initiative to repurpose discarded plastics into building materials called “Ecobricks.” In this project, employees took part in a workshop where they were taught how to properly pack clean and dry used plastics into PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles to achieve a target density, and turn them into a basic building block unit. These units would be built into functional pieces like plant boxes, tables and chairs. Once ready, these will be donated to a chosen school in Boracay for students to use.


As of 17 July 2019, we’ve made 27% progress from reaching our target number of ecobricks.


We encourage you to join the movement! Together we can build clean and green communities when we make a conscious effort in removing plastic from the biosphere. Watch this video from www.ecobricks.org on ‘How to Make Ecobricks’ to help you get started:

  • BEST HOTEL IN BORACAY… NO, BEST HOTEL IN THE PHILIPPINES! Discovery Shores Boracay is Filipino hospitality at its best. Having been to different hotels in the world, I have never found a hotel where you feel the same level of hospitality, service and care from every staff member you meet. It’s beyond feeling at home.”

  • THE BEST RESORT ON THE ISLAND. We have been to many resorts on Boracay, but this is the best by far. The staff are very accommodating, very nice. Kids have a kids room and an activity every 4pm. There are free snacks and snow cones poolside the whole day. The rooms are comfy and cold. The food is yummy. Definitely worth the price!”
