BORACAY, AKLAN – When it opened its doors in 2019, Feliz Hotel Boracay’s aspiration was to be a good and relaxing hotel in the island’s heart. Committed to its core value of providing sustainable and happy experiences to its guests, colleagues, and shareholders, it recently celebrated its fourth anniversary by hosting numerous activities that brought cohesiveness to its staff and gave back to its community with two community services.

The two community services, the gift-giving at the Ati Village and the beach cleanup, were held on two separate occasions and made a memorable impact not only to the hotel staff but also to the recipients and the island itself.

This year’s theme, “Four years of happiness,” revolves around the team’s resiliency over time despite the challenges brought by the island closure and the pandemic. The hotel staff mustered the strength to overcome the obstacles by maintaining the guiding principle of providing a happy experience to their respective clients and guests.
