Ayala Center Cebu: Find ’em all, love ’em all
Strategically located at the heart of Cebu’s central business district, Ayala Center Cebu has stayed true to its commitment of filling mall spaces with the things shoppers and patrons love by setting the standard for a premium mall experience. Today, Ayala Center Cebu gives its patrons more reasons to love living life, making it the preferred mall in Cebu.
Love for Fashion and Shopping
Love for fashion is a bond shared by Ayala and its customers. Ayala has long been an icon of style in the Queen City of the South. The mall is home to big global brands and locally celebrated shops as well. With over 90 brands housed exclusively in Ayala Center Cebu, it brings in the perfect merchandise mix of cost-conscious and premium brands, to high-end fashion boutiques and specialty stores that meet the needs of every market.
Ayala Center Cebu, as the purveyor of fashion in Cebu, continues to bring the best of the world to the region as it becomes home to global retail giants such as the biggest store of Zara and H&M in the Philippines, hip fashion brands and their new concept stores like Pull&Bear and Bershka, and premium offerings from A/X, Dorothy Perkins, Marks and Spencer, Lacoste, Vero Moda, Aeropostale, Herschel, and Cotton On, to name a few. Ayala addresses the needs of its different markets with its two anchor department stores and supermarket chains, Rustan’s and Metro.
Love for Food
Love for food brings families and friends together. The Terraces, the refreshed Food Choices, and the Garden Area at the 4th level have a wide array of local and international food choices, making Ayala Center Cebu the preferred dining destination.
For that Italian fix, choose from Italianni’s, La Tegola, Sbarro, or Idea Italia. Satisfy one’s cravings for Asian cuisine from Harbour City, Rai Rai Ken, Lemon Grass, SumoSam, Majestic or Tsim Sha Tsui Dimsum & Tea Bar. If in the mood for American, there’s Bigby’s, TGI Friday’s or Army Navy, while if it’s Filipino dishes that everyone’s craving for, Café Laguna, Max’s, and Hukad serve great choices for local cuisine. Desserts from La Vie Parisienne, Dessert Factory, Chocolatier, Vanille or Fudge provide a sweet ending to a sumptuous meal.
Love for Art, Entertainment and Good Times
Love for quality time with family and friends is a top priority at Ayala Center Cebu. Well- thought-of and specially designed areas around the mall serve as bonding and entertainment spaces where everyone can take quick breaks from the daily grind.
The open-air Terraces provides a breath of fresh air in the thriving metropolis. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind while enjoying a meal or a cup of coffee. The Terraces also serves as a venue for various mall shows and concerts featuring local and foreign acts.
Being a passionate supporter of local artistry and creativity, Ayala Center Cebu provides a venue for budding and established artists alike to showcase their artwork. “Art at the Park” is an opportunity for mallgoers can be able to appreciate art up close. The thought-provoking stonecast installations and sculptures by Cebuano artist Juan Guido Lubanga are currently on display at the 4th level Garden Area and The Terraces.
Ayala’s interiors are furnished with pieces by outstanding Cebuano furniture designer Vito Selma. Some of Selma’s works are exhibited in the ground floor of the expansion area, while his wooden benches called “Nessie” provide a place where shoppers can rest and lounge in. Recently, Selma created and designed Ayala’s Christmas tree, which featured his signature geometric creations.
The mall is also known for its world-class architecture – a combination of the contemporary and homey ambience. The façade of the expansion area and interiors of the entire mall strongly reflect its upscale nature. The high ceilings and wide hallways flaunt spaciousness while the open spaces and lush landscaping surrounding the mall create a sense of freshness – the perfect place to hang out and rekindle relationships with family and friends.
Love for Customer Service and Inclusiveness
Ayala Center Cebu’s customers can be assured of superior customer service through its Ü -First Campaign, the mall’s continuing program which provides specifically-designated facilities and amenities for the elderly, families and persons with disabilities from comfort rooms to taxi lanes. The campaign ensures that each customer gets personalized and quality service. Concierge Services are located in areas with high pedestrian traffic to give shoppers a pleasurable and hassle-free mall experience.
It also offers a tourist desk, concierge, valet, customer lounges and family lounges that include a kid’s zone and breastfeeding rooms for public convenience. Ayala Center Cebu’s two-level PUV terminal is an accessible commuters’ facility with an organized loading and unloading system with routes to different parts of Metro Cebu and its neighboring towns. A chapel is conveniently located at the 4th level of the expansion area for shoppers who want to reflect on the Word and hear mass every Saturday and Sunday.
Last year, Ayala Center Cebu was recognized for its excellent service as well as its world-class architecture. Among these awards are the 2015 Apolinario Mabini Award as the PWD-Friendly Establishment (Bronze award), a Gold Award in the Renovations and Expansions Design and Development Category at the 2015 Asia Pacific Shopping Center Awards competition of The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) for its expansion area, and Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence.
There’s love waiting to be discovered in every corner of Ayala Center Cebu.
