Dindi Resorts Barangay Yapak
In September 2011, Dindi Resorts opened the doors to its second resort in Boracay Island, in Barangay Yapak. The resort is an exclusive three-bedroom beachfront villa equipped with a private infinity pool overlooking the sparkling waters of Boracay Island.
Guests can also take a dip at the beachfront infinity pool, go for a swim in the resort’s swimming pool, or just laze on its private beach. Both their Dindi and Yapak resorts were conceptualized by award-winning interior designer, Mark Thompson who also designed Balesin Island Club in the Philippines and several other luxury resorts around the world.
The Dindi beachfront villa
The Dindi beachfront villa is built on a ridge overlooking the famous White Beach with private terraces leading to their own infinity pool and stunning ocean views. The details of the architecture are inspired by Philippine culture, from its carved roof beams and hand-painted tiles to its stone columns and tropical hardwood floors. The Dindi resort is a perfect example of the very best Filipino craftsmanship.
The Dindi and Yapak resorts are composed of two three-bedroom villas each with its own infinity pool overlooking the sparkling waters of Boracay Island. The bedrooms all have terraces and balconies overlooking the ocean, surrounding lagoon, or the hills of Diniwid. The villas also have a dining room, and lounge area as well as a fully equipped state-of-the-art kitchen.
The 54 three-bedroom suites (each with its own private infinity pool) are inspired by the huts, homes, and architecture found in traditional Filipino villages. All of the suites at Dindi Resorts are designed by Mark Thompson and consist of three levels. The first level is a 600-square foot area with a sitting room, dining area, and terrace which opens up directly to the pool below.
The second level is an 800-square foot loft bedroom with hand-carved wooden ceiling fans, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a carved-out bathroom with an outdoor rain shower. The third level is an open loft that can accommodate up to two additional guests, or be used as an office space.
