Cebu, one of the most developed provinces in the Philippines, offers five-star hotels, casinos, white sand beaches, world-class golf courses, convention centers, and shopping malls.
The Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu is a world class beachfront resort that combines a truly upscale lifestyle experience with superb facilities and impeccable service. The hotel, which is also the first Mövenpick Hotel & Resort property in the Philippines, first opened in Cebu in April 2011.
In July 2012, the hotel decided to close its doors in order to undergo a complete renovation to further enhance its facilities and to deliver on the Mövenpick Hotel and Resort brand’s renowned standards and customer experience. The resort is excited to debut its spectacular and unique transformation to its guests during its grand re-launch on December 15, 2012, according to Sasha Rahman, Marketing & Communications Manager for the resort property.
With an eco-friendly atmosphere, Cebu offers easy access to natural habitats such as Mactan Island, Malapascua Island, Camotes Island, Kawasan Falls, and Badian Island. Other than smaller islands, Cebu highlights Olango Island, which supports the largest concentration of migratory birds found so far in the country. Migration starts from the birds’ breeding places of in Siberia, Northern China, and Japan. Based in data gathering so far, the birds use Olango as a major refueling station as well as a wintering ground.
A visitor has “the benefits of a big city, without the craziness of Manila (traffic, pollution, etc.), plus quick access to nature,” said Michael Waxelman, Colorado resident who visits Cebu every other year.
Waxelman believes Cebu is an upcoming city for the latest hotel trends. “Cebu has enough resources to make visitors feel welcome and comfortable, so they can experience the Philippines in a setting that is modern enough that first world comforts are readily available,” Waxelman said.
