Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort & Spa, Philippines, in partnership with Bacchus International Inc., invites you to an unforgettable weekend in Boracay Island overflowing with the finest food, wine and leisure options offered exclusively by “Reservations in Paradise” from November 7 to 9.


This three-day epicurean journey is now on its fourth season. The festivity will feature a series of wine pairings in surprise venues around the resort. Featured wines will come from the well-loved wine houses Marchesi Antinori and Champagne Billecart-Salmon. These renowned wineries have provided us their carefully selected collection of wines, while our international chefs will create innovative dishes to enhance the beverage flavors.


Expect an elegant feast for the senses on the first night, offering a delightful medley of gastronomy and music through an intimate performance by the sensational 2CELLOS, followed by an equally glorious seaside dinner and after-dinner party.


It will be our pleasure if you can join us in this different luxury holiday experience on the island of Boracay.





Your weekend itinerary



Day 1: Friday, November 7


Your exciting journey begins today when you arrive at Caticlan. The resort staff will meet you at the arrival hall and escort you to the resort’s exclusive Mabuhay Center lounge where you will board our private speedboat for a 15-minute cruise to Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa.


Upon arrival at the resort’s boat jetty, you will be ushered to your room or villa. You may enjoy the rest of the day at leisure.


Everyone will convene for cocktails before sunset, then ushered to an oceanfront setting where 2CELLOS will perform their compelling artistry. The concert will be followed by an indulgent plated dinner paired with our exquisite selection of wines. Surrender to an endlessly wonderful night as the party continues with cigars and a
nightcap under the stars, on shore.


Day 2: Saturday, November 8


Start the day with a champagne brunch in the company of 2CELLOS. Have a lovely morning affair with a wide spread of fresh breakfast selections and mid-day favourites available at live stations whilst enjoying a free flow of champagne in a relaxed environment.

Spend the rest of the day with your choice of leisure activity. Have a spa treatment at CHI, The Spa, play golf at Fairways & Bluewater Resort, take an introductory dive course or be a chef! Join the cooking class with one of the resort’s master chefs.


Day 3: Sunday, November 9


At the end of your gourmet island retreat is a Farewell Breakfast set in a dramatic location. When you depart from the resort, we hope you have experienced one of the most memorable vacations and bring home with you a new Boracay story of tasteful wonders.








Young Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, together known as 2CELLOS, have achieved sensational success by taking the cello to a new level. Their playing style has broken down the boundaries between different genres of music. They are best known for re-imagining pop and rock tunes performed on their cellos.


2CELLOS rose to fame in 2011 when their version of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” took the world by storm. The YouTube video became a massive viral sensation leading to a record deal with Sony Masterworks and an invitation to join Sir Elton John on his worldwide tour. They have released two albums – 2CELLOS and IN2ITION – which are available on Sony Music Masterworks.

They were the first instrumentalists to ever be featured on “Glee” and have appeared on several primetime talk shows in USA. The duo has collaborated with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens of the Stone Age and George Michael. They have also worked with T-Bone Burnett and Humberto Gatica, and legendary film composer James Newton Howard. 


In consultation with Vernon Go of PULP Live World Production, Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa exclusively presents the first performance of 2CELLOS on Philippine shores.



“…Go and see them live, because it really is astonishing! I can’t remember seeing anything as exciting as them since I saw Jimi Hendrix live back in the 60’s…”
-Elton John

Behind the Curtain's Shadows

Written by





Niña Sandejas

Apartment 1B, Ground Floor One Rockwell East Tower, Rockwell Drive, Makati

May 1- July 31, 2013.

For a year and a half, music photojournalist Niña Sandejas extensively followed bands like Queso, Greyhoundz, Wilabaliw, Slapshock, Razorback and Kjwan, whose continued success is further enhanced by something people don’t normally get to see – fan support and loyalty. “Intense fan reactions cannot relegate this scene into being called the “underground”, as it is far too massive to go unnoticed,” Sandejas adds, Yet they cannot be regarded as mainstream, if the definition of ‘mainstream’ means constant corporate support and attention from traditional media which this ‘other side of rock’ hadn’t needed otherwise.

The exhibit called Behind the Curtain’s Shadows, consists of 45 photographs displayed on large LED screens in Apartment 1B in Rockwell. Sandejas, aimed to capture the musicians and the their fans to create a visual story of loyalty through the love for music.

The title of the exhibit is a reference to the Greyhoundz song “Stage.” The idea of using the line came up when Sandejas was shooting a gig and heard the song, “Aim your spotlights at me as I walk up your stage,” the lyric went. And, “behind my curtain’s shadows I’ll hide my fears, behind my shadow’s curtain’s I’ll hide my tears.” Sandejas further explains, “Then it dawned on me that as much as huge spotlights contributes to what we know of Pinoy Rock, it seems to have missed this particular sea of fans who create just as much of the scene's energy as the bands do."

Sandejas has worked with more known, mainstream or “relatable” bands in the past and by experience she knows that who is more popular defines Pinoy rock, “What people normally see is what defines their perception of what rock is, but it’s not as one-sided as that.” Sandejas has seen the “other side of rock” which she showcases in this exhibit. She claims that it is just as popular if not more powerful based on the images she has captured and concludes that it lacks the attention it deserves. “We all belong in an ecosystem. Every facet of the music industry needs to be acknowledged as part of the Filipino culture, in order to unite the local music scene, no matter how varied the genres may seem.” Sandejas chose to document this massive subculture of rock to show that a lot of Filipinos overlook this very large and important cultural aspect, not just with music, but also with the fans that have started subgroups that rally for their own personal causes.

This current project doesn’t end here,” Sandejas says of her exhibit, “My photography is a lifetime project, one that showcases my life through documenting musicians careers… I haven’t really gotten the answers I’ve had with regards to this particular rock scene; It’s only been a year and a half. I have to dig deeper into history or follow closely the lives of their most loyal fans as much as I’ve followed the lives of the musicians involved.”

Sandejas who is celebrating her 10th year in the music industry, is an award-winning photographer who has toured with many Filipino bands both locally and internationally. She has documented concerts all over Asia, working in Hong Kong and festivals like Singfest, Laneway Festival and Big Night Out in Singapore, MTV World Stage in Malaysia, and Fuji Rock Festival in Japan. She has taken photographs of big named artists such as John Mayer, MUSE, Kanye West, Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, Radiohead, Jack White, Elvis Costello, The Stone Roses and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, among many others.

Based in Manila, when Sandejas is not flying to other countries, she makes sure she focuses her eye on the local music scene as a sign of her support for where she started, “My love for music and photography started with our local bands. If your desire comes from something close to you, it helps you be brave to go places and take good photographs. I’ve done what I’ve done because I know in my heart I always have something to come back to. I’m also thankful our local musicians give me opportunities to take better photographs of them, documenting them makes me feel like I’m living a rock and roll life as well.”
