Summer is halfway through, but plenty of time remains for a beach getaway, and Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa, Cebu offers the perfect opportunity to take quick summer breaks.
Refurbished rooms in the Shangri-La Wing offer an upgraded luxury experience, with thoughtful touches such as a fully integrated extra pull-down bed. The new Casa Suite provides the luxury of space with its cozy snack dining area, while the Veranda Suites feature a separate child’s room with a day bed and en suite shower room.
The family meal plan allows two children below 12 years old to enjoy complimentary buffet meals at Tides, the resort’s all-day dining restaurant, when dining with a paying adult.
Toddlers can make a big splash in the expanded children’s pool and brightly colored Aquaplay, or play in the safety of the Toddler Zone, an indoor playground. Older children will enjoy the Adventure Zone, a three-storey indoor playground, where they can swing on ropes, climb up and down nets and ladders, or crawl through colorful padded columns, walls and floors and play on the 180-degree vertical drop slide, all under the careful supervision of well-trained staff.
Across from the Adventure Zone is the E-Zone, a complete entertainment hub with a TimeZone arcade section, billiards, a foosball table, an air hockey table, a Wii console and an X-box 360 video console.
The resort offers a complete line-up of recreational facilities such as two swimming pools, a six-hole putting range, a 14-hole themed mini-golf park, a Plexipave tennis court, a gymnasium featuring modern exercise equipment, a salon, a sauna and a steam room. A range of water activities is available, from scuba diving, snorkeling, jet skiing, parasailing and windsurfing to glass-bottom boat rides and island-hopping trips to nearby outlying islands. Beach buffs can get a dose of sun, the breeze and the clear, cool waters of the pristine beach cove, which has a bar, tents and a volleyball court.
The family-friendly resort also offers additional services to anticipate the needs of families traveling with babies and young children. Baby cots, baby bathtubs, bottle sterilizers, baby bath amenities and strollers are available upon request, as are trained nannies. A resort doctor and nurse are on call at all times.
