World Class Accommodation at Plantation Bay Resort & Spa in Mactan Island, Cebu

Awesome Facilities! Check! Would you like stay at their villas or 5-star colonial inspired accommodation? But the prize is so expensive, never mind I just want to experience the resort facilities. It has a wide space veranda which is over looking view of the swimming pool or man made lagoon.  All accommodations are spacious, well maintained and quiet place.  I had a great experience and so relaxing ambiance. The staff also stick to the No Tip Policy which helped you relax and enjoy. There is many activities they had for children and adults.

Wide Swimming Pool in Plantation Bay Resort and Spa Cebu

What a perfect place to visit! Most people want a perfect summer destination and only 8 hectares swimming pool area and only 30 minutes away from downtown Cebu City. The place is has a man-made swimming pool, artificial falls, lagoon and clear blue water. The resort accommodation is to expensive for what they offer and I just take a day tour package including foods and drinks. I must admit Plantation Bay Resort and Spa is very pricey for a backpacker like me but it's worth it. Some of their guest are Koreans. I immediately grabbed my camera and its time to take pictures of the man-made lagoons, man-made white beach and swimming pools.For my very short stay in Plantation Bay, I still managed to take lots and lots of photos. 

White Beach Area in Plantation Bay Resort & Spa, Mactan Cebu

At this time I just want to make my day perfect and being relaxed from the city life. From the outside looking in the beach front of Plantation Bay Resort and Spa. This place is crazy i tell you because of their world class facilities and water sports activities. The beach front is covered with white sand and has a wide open sea. But it has many stones and rocky as well. The restaurant makes me happy because of their great foods and drinks and it was very convenient. I want to go there next time also if I have a chance. I find plantation bay the perfect vacation for newly weds. So romantic ambiance!  
Travel Tip: There are free shuttle buses to the hotel which is not advertised. When you first arrive, do take the free shuttle club cars within the resort and get a feeling of the places.

Shangrila's Mactan Resort and Spa By Night

It was once the Philippines largest resort and the best white sand beach area. They are located in two wings: the Ocean Wing and the Main Wing. All of the rooms are decorated with a terrific combination of contemporary Filipino furnishings with materials like capiz, banana leaf. Dining is also an interesting experience at the Shangri-la Mactan Island with the six restaurants and bars available at the site including the brand new Acqua restaurant, which offers Italian cuisine to family favorites like the Cowrie Cove. Whether on the beach, pool or the E-Zone entertainment center, visitors can enjoy a cocktail at the Chill Out Bar.

Touchdown at Mactan-Cebu International Airport

The airport is the Philippines' second primary gateway after the NAIA airports in Metro Manila. The terminal building incorporates both international and domestic flights with a combined capacity for almost 5 million passengersIt's my second time to visit the Queen City of the South. I remember last time we had fun with my friends ken, vic, cha and vivelyn last December 2010. It was an early flight at NAIA Terminal 3, 4am bound to Cebu City and abu\out 1 hour and 15 minutes. Mactan-Cebu International Airport is one of the major cargo airports in the Visayas and has major international flights nowaday. The airport is nice, clean and easy to access by car,taxi or multicab.If budget is a concern, stay away from those yellow airport taxis. Expect P250 to 350 for your ride to the city center since you have to traverse Lapu Lapu City and Mandaue City to get to Cebu City. If you're heading to Talisay or Danao, then taxi would be an expensive option.
