Alegre Beach Resort and Spa is situated up north in quiet Sogod town, Cebu. This multi-awarded and bona fide 5-star resort is a welcome reprieve to the weary visitors of Cebu’s shores. It definitely lives up to its Spanish meaning (happy, cheerful, and bright).
It will take quite some time to get to this hideaway/paradise. But the distance factor will definitely be left behind in the dust road as one enters Alegre. Guests are greeted with friendly receptionists and are obliged to sip welcome drinks.
Facing the seemingly endless sea, a few inhalations of the salty-fresh breeze will be enough to remind guests that they’ve arrived in a huge strip of paradise.
Rooms are enclosed in villas designed in the great tradition of native Philippine architecture. Decked by layers of cogon, they give off an authentic feel of a bygone era. But upon entering the villa, the interiors are replete with luxuries that guarantee a comfortable stay.
Food is usually served buffet style so guests can pick up from different cuisines to satisfy their cravings. Chefs are on standby for personal requests like preparing your eggs or creating exciting desserts. At night, a live roaming band enhances the romantic and festive vibe; they also cater to personal requests.
There are plenty of water activities for the adventurous type. Scuba diving tops the list as master scuba divers teachand guide beginning divers in exploring the depths of Cebu’s coastal reefs. Guests can also try the other activities like dolphin watching, banana boat riding, and jet Skiing, to name a few.
After staying at Alegre and saying goodbye to the warm atmosphere of Sogod, the recurring sound of the waves and ethereal images will be mixing in one’s mind translating to an eager return trip.
