As you step onto your private balcony, tropical sunlight washes over you and a soothing sea breeze kisses your cheeks. Your holiday has begun at Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa, Cebu.
Reluctantly, you leave the luxury of your room, but only to explore the pleasures within the resort. Breakfast at Tides, the resort’s interactive all day-dining outlet, is the first stop.
The lure of the resort’s Marine Sanctuary is not to be denied. A short walk along the beach front leads to an underwater adventure where you encounter diverse species of fish, clams and coral on a snorkeling tour.
Refreshed and recharged, you are now ready to explore the Queen City of the South, as Cebu is also known. Museums and churches highlight Cebu’s vibrant history as a Spanish colony.
Between locations, you admire the sights, sounds and life all around. Lunch is the furthest thing on your mind but you are unable to resist a sampling of Cebu’s renowned succulent mangoes.
Back at Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa, Cebu, you instinctively head for CHI, The Spa. Immersed in a traditional treatment based on the five elements to harmonize and optimize your body’s energy, you relax and drift off to sleep.
Cowrie Cove is where you dine tonight. The al fresco seafood restaurant is the perfect place to end your day.
