Vacation in Cebu is always awesome mainly because it caters to almost everything you ever wanted in a holiday. From churches, historical sites, mountains, food trip and of course beaches. Just a few minutes from the airport, you will be able to see the beautiful Mactan Island. It is located in Lapulapu City which is dubbed as the Historic Resort City of the Philippines and true to its words, Mactan island has a sprawling resorts all over the place. Here are some of the resorts that i had a privilege to stay:
1.SHANGRI-LA’S MACTAN RESORT & SPA
This is one of my favorite resorts because they have the best customer service and the best breakfast buffet in the island. You know when you are in Shangri-La when you feel truly at home with the staff and they accommodate all possible requests that they can.
2. ABACA BOUTIQUE RESORT + RESTAURANT
If you are looking for a resort with utmost privacy and a luxurious stay with personal butler, then this is the best place for you.
3. CHATEAU BY THE SEA
This is a relatively new resort in Mactan with six very spacious rooms. They have a beautiful glass-walled function room with a sea view. The guests can choose where to celebrate weddings, anniversaries and other celebrations at the function room, pool side or the patio near the sea.
The highlight of this resort is their captivating Ibiza.
5. JPARK ISLAND RESORT AND WATERPARK
Formerly Imperial Palace Resort and Waterpark, they take pride in their waterpark which both children and adults can enjoy.
6. CRIMSON RESORT AND SPA
Crimson Resort and Spa takes pride on their villas with private pool. Their restaurant, Azure is a perfect place to chill in the afternoon. They have yummy ensaymada sold at the hotel Bakery and from 7 P.M. onwards, all their breads are sold at 50% off.
7.PLANTATION BAY RESORT AND SPA
This resort boasts of its 11 hectares of privately owned waterworks. One of the largest in Mactan Island.
8.SOTOGRANDE HOTEL AND RESORT
Four nights staycation at this beautiful place. What i love about this hotel is that they have a vast place to have a morning run or afternoon run with a scenic view.
There you go, here are my top resort picks at Mactan Island. There are resorts who are offering day time use too and accepts walk in guests at their restaurants so you always have the options on how to spend your vacation. These resorts also offer water sport activities or island hopping packages so be sure to inquire at the front desk to thoroughly enjoy your holiday.
