Top Resorts That You Should Visit In Cebu

Planning for a vacation stay in Cebu? Picking the right place to do so can easily make or break your whole trip. Fortunately, there are a bunch of resorts here that will be able to cater you depending on your needs and preferences. Here are some of the best resorts in the province that you may find to your liking.

For Luxury - Shangri-La Mactan Island Resort & Spa

Are you looking for a hotel resort that’s just oozing with style and class? Then head off to Mactan and book one of the rooms in Shangri-La. The resort is huge, with over 500 rooms to choose from, ranging from deluxe to a presidential suite. The beach and its surroundings are beautifully maintained and designed to fit the theme of a high class beach resort.

The hospitality service in Shangri-La Mactan is one of the best in Cebu. The wide variety of international dishes here will make your head hurt and your stomach growling. And as for their additional features, they have business centers and meeting rooms, a playground for your children for all ages, outdoor sports like jetskiing and more.

If you want to spoil yourself to the fullest and you’ve got the money to spend to, then the Shangri-La is the best place to do so.

For Privacy - Abaca Boutique Resort

Making those special moments truly memorable is the aim of Abaca Boutique Resort. This is a hotel establishment in Mactan primarily shifted on giving the best of those private moments. Accommodating only a total of twenty people at a time, booking a room will feel like you have the place for you and your special someone.

The rooms here are composed of three unique suites and three unique villas, complete with amenities and toiletries. Service is on par with the ones in Shangri-La, if not better. The staff here aims to provide for your specific needs to give you the best hotel experience. They would even go out of their way, if given the chance, to surprise you and your loved one with something, like a cake for your wedding anniversary for instance.

This is another high-end hotel in Cebu, so prepare your wallet if you ever want to book here. But for your loved one, would you do any less?

For the Family - JPark Island Resort and Waterpark

Kids love to play in the water - all the time. And if you’re bringing them along on your trip, then this is the perfect place to book a room. The most striking feature about JPark is its Waterpark that features a number of themed pools and unique slides. They have the Amazon River, the Island Pool and the Wave Rider to name a few.

The rooms are what you can expect of a four star hotel - they’re spacious, well maintained and complete with amenities. Their services are great as well as the food they prepare. They offer various outdoor activities like snorkeling/diving, parasailing and jetskiing. As for indoor activities, they have fitness gyms, playrooms for the kids and spa services as well.

If you plan on treating your family on a trip, make sure they experience more than a splash on the beach. JPark Island Resort and Waterpark definitely has more than that.

For Diving Enthusiasts - Malapascua Exotic Island Dive & Beach Resort

The Exotic, as many would call it, is located on a small island off the northern coast of Cebu, Malapascua. The island itself is a bundle of natural beauty - white sand beaches all over and one of the world’s best diving spots on the waters. Aside from being a great resort, its diving facilities and courses are the best you could find on the island. Monad Shoal, an abode for the thresher sharks, is one of its main itineraries.

The rooms here are nonetheless great, complete with the necessary amenities. They have their own restaurant, but if you want, there are also other food establishments near the resort that you can go to as well. They also offer spa services as well.

The instructors here are licensed by PADI (Professional Association of Diving Instructors), so if you want to learn the basics of diving, it’s also the place to go to. Getting trained here and diving in one of the best places you could dive into is like hitting two birds with one stone.

The Best in The South - Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort

Now we go over to the southern regions of Cebu. There are many noticeable resorts here, but the one that got the best location goes to this resort. It’s located on Sumilon Island, a very beautiful island that can only be accessed from Oslob via boat ride. Another point to take note is that it’s currently the only upscale hotel resort on the island as well.

This hotel offers various room accommodations like the Family and Honeymoon Villas and the deluxe rooms. However, they also feature one special room - the Glamping Tent. In a nutshell, it’s a spacey camp tent set up on the premises of the resort itself. It has no air-conditioning and gives you the ambience of going out camping.

They have some great infinity pools as well, but aside from that, what really sets this resort apart from the others is how the island’s natural beauty perfectly compliments it. Its white sand banks, the lush green forest around the island, and just everything about it makes staying at this hotel totally worth it. If you want a secluded vacation away from busy life and the bustling city, bring your family or your loved ones along and spend your days away on this resort. And if it’s beauty still isn’t enough, you can always take a ride back to Oslob and watch some whale sharks in close proximity.

The Best in the North

In Camotes Island - Mangodlong Paradise Beach Resort

This hotel is pretty normal when you compare it with the standards of the luxury hotels in Mactan. The staff try the best to provide the guests utmost care and the rooms are just average. But what makes Mangodlong Paradise a preferred choice are its surroundings. The beach area and the view from their pools are simply breathtaking and will easily captivate anyone.

They have their own restaurant and because it’s quite new, you can expect their rooms to be well maintained and up to date. Camotes is a pretty secluded place from the mainland, and this resort is the closest thing you’ll get to high class hotel services.

In Bantayan - Amihan Beach Cabanas

Bantayan has become one of the main tourist destination in Cebu and the beaches of Santa Fe are its main attractions. The huts of Amihan perfectly complement the white sand beach, with its traditional Filipino design, it’s walls and roof made mostly from bamboo. Despite that, it doesn’t lack the amenities like air-conditioning or Cable TVs - you can also choose a “cabana” with no AC though.

The Cabanas of Amihan give you a perfect view of the sea and the close distance to it will make you want to take a dip in those waters immediately. And to make it even better, the moment you step out of the hut, it’s white sand all over.

More Choices

There are still numerous resorts in Cebu that can offer you the services you’re looking for. Price may be a prime factor as to how good the service offered will be, along with the amenities, but sometimes, a resort doesn’t have to provide the qualities that a luxury hotel may have to be picked as a favorite. Sometimes, all it needs is to be at the right place.

What about you? Do you have a hotel resort that you have taken a personal liking to? What made them stand out from the rest?
