The types of resorts available in a said location primarily depends on the location itself. For example, if you are egging to ski on a snowy slope, then going to Hotel Portillo in Chile would be a great choice. Now what if you want to go for a swim in the tropics and go dive with some exotic fishes? One of the best options would be to travel to in island in the Cebu, Philippines.
Here are some resorts that you can find in this island.
Family resorts, as the name implies, are resorts that targets the enjoyment of the whole family. Placed in an island with a tropical climate, hotels here make use of Cebu’s great coastlines as their prime asset. Here are some great resorts for the family in Cebu.
Punta Engano Road, Lapu Lapu
Situated in Mactan, the Shangri-La is one of the most iconic hotel resorts in Cebu. Managed by one of the biggest hotel chains in the world, this hotel is reputed to provide world class services and so far, they didn’t disappoint. Many have already expressed how great the services the hotel offers and they are very consistent.
Marigondon, Lapu Lapu
Another great place to spend time with the whole family, the place mainly features their constantly maintained, man-made lagoons and the rooms that sit right next to them. Everyone has the option to pick those rooms where they can simply jump into the water any second they want to. The resort isn’t limited to those however as it features other activities like diving and more.
Themed Park Resorts
These kinds of resorts often feature fun rides and adventure for the people. Of course, Cebu also has them. Here are a few.
M.L Quezon Highway | Brgy. Maribago, Lapu Lapu
This one is a hotel and a theme park rolled into one. Putting aside its hotel amenities and services (which is also great, by the way), the hotel features a myriad of water ride options perfectly suited for its seaside location. Anyone can partake in these fun activities so the place can also be considered a family resort of sorts.
Fuente Tower 2, Osmena Boulevard, Cebu City
The place is mainly a hotel, but on its topmost floors lies its very own “theme park”. Crown Regency is the only establishment in Cebu that features the Edge Coaster, Skywalk Extreme and other activities that allow you to walk the edge of the hotel, 38 floors up. And if that’s not enough for you, there’s always the Tower Zip – it’s a zipline course from one tower to the other.
Seeing as it’s a tropical island and all, Beach Resorts are something that you can find along the coastlines of Cebu. Some of the previously mentioned hotels also double as beach resorts. Here are more examples of them.
Buyong, Maribago, Mactan Island, Lapu Lapu
Along with its great beaches, Bluewater also feature a couple of recreational activities for their guests. A couple examples would be jet-skiing, island hopping, snorkeling and scuba diving. They can also do fish feeding in its Marine Wildlife Saltwater Lagoons. Aside from the beach, they can also enjoy the resort’s swimming pools.
Seascapes Resort Town, Mactan Island
Again, the place features a great beachfront, complementing its 3-tier infinity pools. Other than that, the hotel (aside from the usual services) offers its guests some recreational activities for the whole family as well. Children have their own playtime at Crimzone for Kids and the adults can do various watersport activities like kayak, snorkeling, para-sailing and more.
There are more resorts that Cebu has to offer, and these establishments are constantly growing in number. That’s because this industry never fails to draw in people from inside and outside the country.
