Boracay, Philippines: An international celebrity appearance was waiting for Filipinos after Floyd Mayweather Jr. paid a visit to the holiday island of Boracay.
Former world boxing champion and global megastar Mayweather Jr. visited Boracay and made the most out of his vacation at Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay, the tropical beachfront retreat at Punta Bunga Cove on the island’s idyllic northwest tip.
Mövenpick accommodated Mayweather a few more nights beyond his reservation. The undefeated champ took the opportunity to walk down the island’s golden coast, went shopping in the D’Mall and posed for selfies with star-struck locals.
He was also able to relax and soak up the luxurious ambience at Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay, which provides a serene and secure haven for high-profile guests. Mayweather stayed in the stunning 370-square metre Sol Marina Villa, which features its own private infinity pool and Jacuzzi.
For sporting legends, movie stars, TV celebrities or simply those who want to spend a few days living like the rich and famous, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay has everything guests need for an exclusive stay. With a long stretch of private beach at Punta Bunga Cove, VIPs can unwind in peace and seclusion, away from the snapping cameras and autograph hunters. Water sports and island-hopping adventures are also available, showcasing Boracay’s spectacular seascapes.
Back at the resort, celebrities can soothe their senses in the sublime Sagay Spa, which features an extensive menu of massages, body scrubs, facials and beauty treatments, including state-of-the-art WINBACK® therapies which rejuvenate the body at a cellular level.
World-class dining can be enjoyed at a choice of outstanding restaurants, including authentic Italian and innovative Asian options. There’s 24-hour room service available for guests who prefer to keep a low profile even as the stylish Sol Marina Beach Club is a great place to chill out with cool cocktails after dark.
Mayweather flew to the Philippines on his own private jet. But guests don’t need their own plane to arrive at Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay in style; the resort can arrange private transfers to and from Caticlan Airport, which offers direct connections from Manila, Cebu and Clark.
Widely considered to be one of the greatest boxers in history, Floyd Mayweather Jr. was undefeated in 50 fights and held multiple world titles in five different weight classes. High-profile victories against the Philippines’ own Manny Pacquiao and mixed martial arts champion Conor McGregor have elevated his reputation to legendary status. He was also named by Forbes as the world’s highest paid athlete for two consecutive years.
“Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a genuine global superstar – an athlete who transcends his sport. We were thrilled but not surprised that he chose Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay for his island vacation. Nestled on Boracay’s exclusive northwest tip, we provide everything celebrities and VIPs need for a peaceful and private stay in paradise,” said André Brulhart, General Manager, Mövenpick Resort & Spa Boracay.
