Boracay Newcoast: The newest MICE destination in the Visayas

By: Business Mirror 

With the innumerable accolades that Boracay Island is consistently receiving, travelers from near and far flock to the destination for an experience of paradise. Over the years, visitors have regularly been Free and Independent Travelers (FITs), but over time, Boracay has gained traction with both the domestic and international markets of Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conventions, and Exhibition Events (MICE). While the island’s hospitality industry is prepared for tourist influx, Boracay’s MICE facilities are limited, and the rising demand for large-scale events became more imminent.

To address the community’s needs, Megaworld Hotels and Resorts (MHR) built Boracay Newcoast, the first and only master-planned leisure-oriented township of the island. Situated northeast of Boracay, the 150-hectare development provides expansive grounds that feature facilities to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable stay for all types of travelers, including differently-abled and MICE guests.

Boracay Newcoast is home to over 1,000 room keys in Savoy Hotel Boracay and Belmont Hotel Boracay, MHR’s two accommodation establishments with exclusive access to the 300-meter white sand Newcoast Beach.

Savoy Hotel Boracay is designed for the modern and hip traveler. Complementing its 559 guestrooms ranging from 27 to 55 square meters are 11 function rooms, which accommodate small to medium sized meetings and events. The vibrant setting of Savoy Hotel Boracay makes it perfect for young professionals and adventurous people that are looking for a fun experience on the Newcoast. It also boasts of the country’s first and only concert pool arena, with a capacity to hold up to 300 persons.


Belmont Hotel Boracay, with 442 guestrooms ranging from 27 to 54 square meters, is home for travelers looking to escape the urban hustle and bustle. Equipped with four function rooms and meeting spaces that can accommodate 25 to 100 persons, the hotel exudes a calm and peaceful ambiance well suited for individuals and families that welcome a beachside respite.

Both Savoy Hotel Boracay and Belmont Hotel Boracay have a fitness gym, a spa and a swimming pool, and share a retail area that features convenience in food, beverage, and clothing options. More restaurants, bars and other specialty stores are slated to open soon.

Larger event requirements can be accommodated at the Boracay Newcoast Convention Center (BNCC). With at least 2,378 square meters for at least 700 seating capacity. The BNCC is within walking distance to both hotels, and is situated at the heart of the Estate. For comfort, a complimentary shuttle service is provided to transfer hotel guests to the BNCC and back.

Various affordable packages for MICE events at the BNCC are available starting at P935.00 to P2,585.00 per person, at a minimum of 200 persons. Live-in and live-out rates for groups above 300 persons start at P870.00 to P2,520.00. These banquet packages are bundled with tables and chairs, use of a podium, an LED wall, standard Public Address system with two microphones, whiteboard and markers, pads, pencils, and WiFi access for all attendees.

As a tourist destination, Boracay Newcoast provides exceptional experiences for one and all. The famed Keyhole frames a beautiful sunrise on this side of the island, a definite must-see. Various activities can be enjoyed at Newcoast Beach, including kayaking and paddle boarding. For those who fancy motor rides, electronic bicycles and ATVs are likewise available for rent.

Boracay Newcoast is accessible via your choice of its own speedboat or shuttle service from Caticlan Airport, which is 45 minutes away.
