A haven for both business and leisure travelers nestled along the white shores of Mactan Island.
There’s no better way to welcome guests in the Philippines islands than warm smiles and a refreshingly good drink. Since we are staying in as a fam-tour group, the resort’s staff was on top of the check-in process, which went smoothly.
Upon arrival, we were lead to the Saffron Restaurant for late lunch. The spacious dining was quiet and offered pleasant views of surrounding greeneries. The group enjoyed a hearty lunch at the Saffron Café. Other dining options at the resort were Score Sports Bar and Azure Beach Club.
The private villas and contemporary guest rooms, all of which are spread across the sprawling 6-hectare land, are designed with guests’ comfort in mind. Equipped with modern-day amenities, every stay, whether for business or leisure, is promised a relaxing and fulfilling one.
With its muted nature colors and spacious size, the rooms were a delight to relax in after a long day of travels and exploration. The beds felt very comfy and were a good size for lounging around when you feel drained after moving out and about for a few hours. With ample air-conditioning and a nifty bathroom space, I feel like I could just staycation in my bed all day and still feel like it was a day worth spending.
Aum, its first-rate spa, offers utmost tranquility and pure relaxation. The comfy beds, bathtub, and well-trained staff cater to your every stiff muscle or sore joint. Thin, curtains are often the only thing keeping you away from Mother Nature’s gentle and refreshing touch so you can rest to the fullest.
As with any tropical resort, a pool is essential for guests to cool off in when the days get hot. The sizeable pool in the resort is big enough to support a couple of families while also being quite clean and blue. It’s delightful to wade through the waters or just soak up the sun.
If you want to take a part of your adventures back home with you, the souvenir shop is ready with an assortment of fun little keepsakes ranging from shirts to accessories and even small toys.
With outstanding service delivered by the friendly and professional Cebuano staff amid an Asian-themed haven set along the amazing shores of one of the Philippines' finest island, any holiday in Cebu can only get better at the Crimson Resort & Spa Mactan.
