Only a few steps into the clear ocean water at Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa is a mesmerising array of fish and marine life, whilst a little further are two sunken ships which attract even more colourful, subaqueous life.
Back on land, children can enjoy the multi-level indoor playground Adventure Zone and teens have computer games, table soccer and karaoke at E-Zone. The resort also boasts a six hole golf course, two swimming pools and the massive, but excellent spa – CHI. (meaning – the universal force responsible for our vitality). Many treatments are derived from the ancient Filipino traditions and its healing herbs and plants.
The hotel also has 8 lovely restaurants and bars offering a smorgasbord of international cuisine. Standout is probably Cowrie Cove Seafood Bar and Grill with brightly lit fish tanks at the entrance and a location overlooking a calm sea.
Most guests take time to explore Cebu – the ‘Queen City of the South’. Excellent shopping plus the museums and churches highlight Cebu’s vibrant history as a Spanish colony.
