I went to Cebu last week with the hubby together with some of our foodie buddies and Raquel of Vikings Luxury Buffet Restaurant for the sneak preview of Vikings Cebu and a little R&R via Philippines AirAsia.
During our stay, we were graciously accommodated by Movenpick Hotel Mactan Cebu. This 5-Star hotel boasts of picturesque and scenic surroundings. It is the perfect place to stay in the “Queen City of the South” if you love taking pictures or looking for Instagrammable spots to shoot great selfies.
Movenpick Hotel Mactan Cebu is located 6 kilometers away from Mactan Cebu International Airport. The place has 245 well appointed rooms from deluxe to suites, a beachfront hotel and offers an array of choices like event spaces, wellness, leisure activities and culinary delights to name a few. It is no doubt your perfect escape from the urban buzz.
This Mediterranean-inspired hotel made me fall in love the moment I first set foot. Even if we arrived almost dinner time, the beauty of this place is still evident and takes on a differently beautiful ambiance.
Here are my 6 Reasons why I fell in love with Movenpick Hotel Mactan Cebu
Movenpick Hotel Mactan Cebu has one of the prettiest hotel lobbies that I have seen! It’s clean, spacious and well ventilated with a nice view of the pool and beach. The refreshing colors in white and blue hues give you that summer vibe all year round.
We stayed in an 1-Bedroom Suite with a receiving area and a private balcony that overlooks the Mactan Island.
The suite is equipped with LED TV, work desk, complimentary internet access, a fully stocked minibar and anything that you might probably need during your stay.
A Pillow Menu is also available. Choose a type of pillow best suits you by calling the Housekeeping Department for assistance.
3. Our Suite’s Bathroom
The bathroom is majestic and truly picture worthy! It has 2 sliding doors located on both ends with a separate tub and shower.
And to match its upscale feature, a box of Chopard toiletries will delightfully welcome you.
4. Pool, Beach and View
Movenpick Hotel Mactan Cebu boasts of its wonderful view may it be morning or night. Couple that with the relaxing sea breeze and inviting waters and the place is nothing short of spectacular! During our stay, it was nothing but clear skies and sunshine.
Anyone who has been to Movenpick Hotel Mactan Cebu will agree with me that the pool is the most photographed area and a popular spot to have that #BOTD (bikini of the day) or #OOTD shot. I, for one, am guilty of this! It’s just beautiful!
And in the evening the sunken chairs are illuminated.
While the pool is more than enough, the view of the beach is worth a visit, too. Nothing better than lounging at the beach or stroll and feel the white powdery sand between your toes.
5. Ibiza Beach Club
This is the most sought after venue on the island. Ibiza Beach Club located inside Movenpick Hotel Mactan Cebu shouts style from music to vibe to dining with its Mediterranean tapas down to their churrasco challenge — 15-course Balearic-inspired meat and seafood grill. Ibiza Beach Club is the place to be.
Maple Walnut Ice Cream
6. Ibiza Loft
Another area that you shouldn’t miss (or at least get to see) is the Ibiza Loft. Located on the 21st and 22nd floors of Movenpick Hotel Mactan Cebu, the Ibiza Loft is designed with contemporary furnishing with 3 bedrooms and a spacious receiving area that is perfect for big groups.
During our stay, the owner of Movenpick Hotel Mactan Cebu and Manny O wines – Mr. Manny Osmena, was generous enough to pause his work to visit us and spend a considerable amount of time to talk to us. During our conversation, he shared his advocacies and his deep passion to help fellow Filipinos, most especially those who cannot fend for themselves and are reeling from calamities and disasters. Such a great guy.
Movenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu is the quintessential vacation destination spot in Cebu for you or the entire family. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway and want some peace and solitude with service that is truly impeccable, then make sure to book a room here. It is definitely your home by the beach. I loved it here and I am sure you will love it, too.
