The Floating Restaurant, Mövenpick Resort & Spa
Mactan Island is just one of the many tourist-magnet destinations in the province of Cebu because of its beautiful beaches and breath-taking views of mountains and coastlines. And if it's your first time to visit the province and you want to quickly jump off a white-sand beach, Mövenpick Resort & Spa formerly Hilton Cebu Resort & Spa is one the best near-airport hotel choices. Yes, Mövenpick is just a few kilometers away (a roughly 10-minute drive) from Mactan-Cebu International Airport, both of which lie in the Lapu Lapu city territory. It is also very close to the Mactan Shrine where the famous statue of Lapu Lapu is erected.
There are actually a lot of hotel options along the eastern coastline of Cebu. Some of the neigboring hotels of Mövenpick are Shangri-la Mactan and Be Resorts, to name a few.
Aside from the private beach, there is also a large pool and a floating restaurant walking distance along the coastline. During the night, you'll get serenaded by live music performances in the al fresco bar and restaurant of the hotel. And of course, one important requirement for the earthlings in today's generation, internet access–yes, there's FREE WIFI access everywhere. In fact, you can still get a strong wifi signal even when you're on the farthest side of the shore.
The room rates? Well, knowing it's Mövenpick, it's really not cheap. But since it's THE Mövenpick, their rates I guess is just reasonable, considering the superb services and amenities. It's actually Mövenpick's first hotel venture in the Philippines. To know more about their room rates, check on their official website.
FYI: Mövenpick Resort & Spa has 246 rooms including 74 spa suites!
