JenGroup Leisures Inc. together with the hotel management group Hospitality Business Group Inc., have recently expanded their Ferra Hotels brand; a group of fast-growing hotels and restaurants sprawled across the island paradise of Boracay.
Having started out with the chic boutique Ferra Hotel Boracay in 2015, the new venture, Ferra Hotel & Garden Suites offers 43 well-appointed rooms and suites, a rooftop Dip Pool and bar with lounging decks, and a specialty restaurant; Brick and Basil Woodfire Bistro. Both hotels excel in offering the perfect balance of comfort, high-class design and style, alongside a culture of strong, quality service.
Walking in to the lobby of Ferra Hotel & Garden Suites, guests will be in no doubt as to where its name is derived. The lobby area is spacious, with high ceilings and plenty of built in seating for guests, as well as, separate wrought iron stylish bucket sofa’s, with Ferra Hotel’s signature colorful cushions. But the eye is immediately drawn to the deep and luscious tropical plants climbing the walls to the right of it all, rendering the impression of being in a tropical courtyard garden. The slate grey floor-tiles of the lobby are a feature carried throughout many of the guest rooms and corridors.
The stunning Garden Suite, with its Instagram-worthy outside bath and shower area, complete with more tropical plants, is located on the ground floor. The Garden Suite features a king-size bed, as well as a second indoor shower room. The room is incredibly spacious with all mod-cons; large 50” HD Cable TV, a stylish air-con unit, mini-fridge, wood furnishings, handcrafted bamboo ceiling fan and a coffee maker. The suite is already special enough, but the outside garden bathtub and shower, accessed through modern wood-framed sliding doors, just adds to its romance and exclusiveness.
The Corner Suites also offer an exceptional stay to guests looking for something a bit more special. The main door opens into a separate living space with hardwood floors and a cream colored sofa, accompanied by feature-color cushions and curtains. Wood tables and lamps complete the look, along with a readied game of Sungka and nearby instructions for playing. The hardwood floors carry through to the separate bedroom area, which is fitted with a queen-sized bed. Some of the 4 Corner Suites available, include twin day beds, which can serve as another seating area or as extra beds, others have a convertible sofa bed in the living room. The bedrooms also have separate air-conditioning units.
Regardless of the Ferra Hotels room type; from the least expensive Superior Rooms through to the most expensive Suite Rooms, class and style feature highly in the décor and features. Each room has crisp white or cream walls, with either a color feature wall, or decorated with wood panelling. The white, high-thread cotton sheets are complemented with colorful comforters, which match the curtains and cushions, along with pillows with woven slips labelling them as ‘soft’ or ‘firm’ for guests choice. Another wonderful perk, the shower rooms are spacious no matter which room you are in.
All suites and rooms are equipped with safety deposit boxes, a mini-fridge, coffee and tea facilities, 40” flat screen TV’s, a modern Bluetooth speaker, alarm clock, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi access provided by the hotel.
The ground floor located Brick and Basil Woodfire Bistro serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also service the roof-top bar and Dip Pool, as well as room service to guests. The menu consist of mostly Asian-themed dishes along with a good range of pizza options, cooked using their wood-fired ovens. The roof-top bar and eating area comes alive at 5pm until midnight, but guests can also order food and drinks from the menu during the day time.
The blue-tiled, 4ft deep Ferra Dip Pool stretches along the length of the roof, and features built-in seating and plant areas along the side, as well as, gorgeous white lounge chairs, along the edges of the pool itself, so guests can sunbathe and stay cool at the same time. Due to the hotels central location, the Ferra Rooftop is the ideal place to catch the stunning Boracay sunset -whilst sipping on delicious cocktails.
Award-Winning Exceptional Service
Ferra Hotels guests receive exceptional care and attention upon arrival: refreshing ice cold fragrant wet towels are provided to guests, to cool off from the heat of their journey across the island to the hotel. In the lobby designed with comfort in mind, guests can sit in a cool tranquil garden-style area whilst waiting to be shown to their rooms or for their pick up for one of Boracay’s Island Hopping Tours.
The Ferra brand is synonymous with exceptional customer services; no wonder they’re on The RANGGO 100 Best List.
Whomever you meet walking around the hotel, from The Front Office, to the bar, housekeeping personnel and guests relations staff, each will offer a pleasantly cheerful greeting coupled with a quick-willingness to assist.
