Consistently named among the best islands in the world, Mactan has a new ace up its sleeve: the Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu Resort.

The island of Mactan in Cebu offers so much to travelers, from those seeking sea, sand and sun to those eager to learn about its rich history and local culture. With the fast-approaching opening of the Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu Resort, discriminating travelers will be further spoilt for choice.

Owned by Robinsons Land Corporation and managed by Thailand’s Dusit Hotels & Resorts, the five-star beachfront resort is located on the northwestern tip of Mactan Island, in the picturesque barangay of Punta Engaño.

“Teaming up with Dusit Hotels & Resorts, a well-established international brand, is a step in the proper direction for the company,” says Arthur Gindap, the newly appointed SVP and Business Unit General Manager of Robinsons Hotels and Resorts. “We are proud of our real estate development experience, and are driven to constantly introduce new and exciting brands and concepts to this quality-conscious market. As the market matures in sophistication and as competition continues to increase, introducing a global brand will further fortify our presence in Cebu.”

Once a quiet seaside fishing village, the resort’s ideal location has developed in recent years into one of the prime resort and residential destinations in Cebu.

It’s also very easy to get to the five-star paradise–being only a short drive away from the recently opened Mactan-Cebu International Airport. Guests can also take the more scenic route, via the resort’s exclusive water transfer service. Whichever you choose, it’s a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Guests arriving at the property will be greeted by the inviting architecture of the resort’s main buildings, three low-rise structures that effortlessly blend in harmony with their surroundings. After being ushered inside the open-air Grand Lobby, a sense of wonder takes over. The eye is immediately drawn to the sweeping views of Magellan Bay, with the hazy hills and mountains of Liloan, Cebu, in the distance. Sure to be the hands-down favorite spot to unwind is the resort’s signature 100-meter long infinity pool, which seemingly merges into the sea.  The dramatic pool is complemented by the boardwalk promenade below, beautifully landscaped and perfect for sunbathing or a leisurely stroll. These unique features overlook the resort’s exclusive beach, offering exceptional views and an unparalleled experience to every guest.

From this point, guests make their way to their accommodations, with several room types to choose from. These include the cozy Deluxe Garden View or Deluxe Sea View rooms, and the well-appointed Dusit Club Rooms, the medium-sized suites (Governor’s, Captain’s, and Executive), and finally, the majestic three-bedroom suites: the JG Suite and the Admiral’s Suite. Each of the resort’s almost 300 rooms has complimentary wi-fi, internet-ready TVs, coffee and tea making facilities, comfortable beds, and many other thoughtful amenities and modern conveniences. Guests may be tempted to stay in, though they’d be missing out, as there’s much more to see and experience at Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu.

Some may choose to combine business with pleasure, so for that there are six event venues that can host celebrations, meetings, or seminars. The largest of these is the 1,235 sq.m Dusit Ballroom–the largest pillarless ballroom in Mactan–which can comfortably seat 600 guests for banquets or up to 1,000 guests for cocktails. At 500 sq.m, the Pre-Function Area can host cocktails for 400 guests, while the four smaller Salons, ranging from 95 to 100 sq.m., can seat a maximum of 60 guests for dinner or 80 guests for cocktails. Let’s not forget the versatile Sky Garden, which has a sweeping view of the sea, the resort’s pool, and the beach. This scenic area is perfect for teambuilding sessions, outdoor receptions, or health and fitness-related activities.

To complement these facilities, the resort also offers the TechnoGym-equipped D-FiT Fitness Center, the Namm Spa for relaxation, the Indoor Kid’s Zone, a World Class Dive Center, plus a wide variety of Water Sports and Activities, and more.

After a day’s worth of activities, resort guests will surely savor replenishing those burnt calories at Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu’s world-class restaurants, such as the Sea Breeze Cafe featuring an international buffet; Benjarong, Dusit’s signature contemporary Thai restaurant; the Sunset Bar, a poolside sports bar and gastro pub; the open-air Lobby Lounge, and the upscale Dusit Club Lounge. With tall coconut fronds swaying gently overhead, laze away the afternoon here with a refreshing drink in hand, and get ready for possibly the best sunset view in all of Cebu. They say that no two sunsets are alike; travelers surely wouldn’t mind coming back again and again if only to prove that it’s true.

“Graciously Dusit by caring people,” says the resort’s General Manager, David Baldwin. “Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu combines the best of Filipino and Thai hospitality and grace, and we look forward to contributing to Mactan’s hospitality landscape. The growth of internationally-known resort brands like Dusit Thani in Mactan and the new International Terminal at MCIA are strengthening Mactan’s position as the country’s top tourism destination. We are proud to enter the dynamic Mactan market.”

Robinsons Land has other developments in Cebu with its 3 malls, 3 office projects, 7 residential buildings, 2 subdivisions, as well as 2 other hotels.
