One of the best things living in Asia is there are many amazing islands, beaches surrounded in Southeast Asia, and it’s just 2 -3 hours away from Hong Kong. The Philippines has some amazing islands, apart from Boracay, the most famous one, Cebu is probably the other best choice in the country. As a resort lover and islander, picking a right resort is very decisive for a good quality beach vacation. There are many great and luxurious resorts in Lapu Lapu City, Mactan Island. However, Plantation Bay Resort & Spa was my best pick as my first experience in Cebu.
THEMED BREAKFAST: Each morning we were welcomed with internationally themed breakfast that was freshly cooked. We enjoyed the Philippine themed, Chinese themed and an Italian themed breakfast, along with fresh pastries and coffee.
LAGOON EXPERIENCE: The lagoon is one of the most impressive features. Sitting in the center of the resort, with water boardwalks, small beach in the center dressed with palm trees, cabanas with sun chairs. It was lovely lounging in one of the cabanas with the resort food and drinks.
MASSAGE EXPERIENCE: After unwinding in the Japanese springs we were treated to a 60 min deep tissue massage. The massage was magical. The therapist had great techniques and they used an essential oil infused massage oil. It was a bliss, total relaxation. The experience was amazing and unforgettable. It’s a pretty lovely getaway to people who need a healing process for their body and soul.
MY FAVE PLANTATION MOMENT: Sipping their signature drink Mango Martini at the pool bar while enjoying the golden sunset melting away in the capacious lagoon was always the best time of the day. Enjoy more Plantation Moments HERE & HERE
