Top Resorts in Cebu


This is my list of the top 5 luxury resorts in Mactan Cebu.

When it comes to resorts in Cebu there are so many to choose from. Compared to some other tropical islands, you will find a resort in Cebu in most cases pretty affordable. I have made a list of my top 7 resorts in Cebu, listed in no particular order, for the full list of resorts in Cebu visit my hotels in Cebu directory list. For those seeking purely luxury resorts, check out my blog on the Top 10 luxury resorts in Cebu here.


Video guide to the top resorts in Cebu.

This video (above) is a newer video I did which I wanted to show case the best resorts around Cebu. Some of the resorts are the same as listed below and a few more added in.

Shangri La Resort Cebu

As top resorts come, this is probably the best you can get in Cebu. A perfect tropical luxury getaway. With an amazing beach (although man made), beautiful landscaped gardens and truly luxurious rooms.  The resort is also one of the largest in Cebu. Enjoy the wonderful Filipino hospitality and you sit back and enjoy your holiday. This is one resort in Cebu I highly recommend.


Cebu White Sands at Maribago Beach (Mactan Island)


The title Cebu White Sands is a bit misleading, as the beach here isn’t as great as it sounds. Like with many beaches in Mactan Island, this beach is a bit disappointing! None the less this resort has a couple of great pools to enjoy swimming in. While not as big, brash or expensive as a lot of resorts in Mactan Island this one gives you a more laid back feel. The rooms are large and clean and the staff are very attentive and friendly. I really like the smaller feel to the place (not some 300 room 20 hectare resort where you need a taxi to get from one side to the other!), while still enjoying a relaxing ambience that you come to expect from a Cebu resort. For a complete guide the resorts in Mactan and things to do and see on the island, visit my Mactan page.

Mangodlong Paradise Beach Resort (Camotes Islands)


Mangodlong Paradise Beach Resort takes the place of Santiago Bay Resort as our favourite resort in the Camotes. The resort is the closest thing you will get to luxury on the island with brand new rooms complete with all modern amenities you need. Mangodlong has its own great beach area as well as the great infinity pool (the only one on the Camotes). The resort has an open air restaurant serving up some great food. Friendly staff and lovely landscaped gardens makes this resort in Camotes one you really need to stay at. For the complete guide to resorts in the Camotes, please visit my Camotes page.

Be Resort  (Mactan Island)


I love anything hip and funky and this resort in Cebu (Mactan Island) fills our needs perfectly. As soon as you walk into this resort you can see that the interior decorator went to town with its vibrant colour schemes and trendy furniture. The rooms match the feel and style of the hotel, with their chic elegance. The beach again (as is the norm in Mactan) is pretty average, but the stylish looking (if rather a bit small) swimming pool makes up for the disappointing beach. Be Resort is popular with the Asian market and this Cebu resort ranks up there as one of my favourites.

Sumilon Island Resort


Looking for a resort in Cebu that gives you a piece of paradise? Sumilon Blue Water Resort in Cebu may give you that and more! A few hours south of Cebu City and a 10 minute boat ride will have you on this island. Beautiful, peaceful and secluded is what’s in store for the tourist. The rooms are spacious and simply furnished and have a veranda overlooking the ocean. The island offers the guest some beautiful beaches and great swimming opportunities. Relax, have a massage while looking at the ocean and just unwind! Ever wanted to camp under the stars? A new initiative is they offer luxury camping which we find tempting to say the least. Living in luxury is not cheap and you’re restricted to the resort’s only restaurant (again which isn’t cheap) so if you don’t mind the prices this is an excellent resort in Cebu.

Of all of Cebu’s luxury beach resorts one definitely worth mentioning is the Movenpick Beach Resort on Mactan Island. Originally built by the Hilton Hotel Chain it was bought over by the Swiss company and re-branded as the Movenpick Hotel Mactan or better known as the Movenpick Cebu. They closed the resort for around 6 months and gave it a huge renovation to the beach area. This was a huge plus to the resort and gave it a much needed fresh and modern look. They opened their new beach front restaurant and bar the Ibiza Beach Club. At the end of the day, it’s a wonderful place chill and watch the sunset with a nice cold beer or cocktail. The staff are second to none and help make your vacation to Cebu only the more better. If you have the money it’s well worth checking out this resort in Cebu.

Plantation Bay Resort & Spa (Mactan Island)


This Cebu resort must go down as the best eye candy views in all of Mactan. We’re not talking about the girls either, this is strictly scenic views! The resort is made up of a number of man-made lagoons that are surrounded by luxury Villas. Pamper yourself at the spa, enjoy the water sports or dine in one of the resorts 4 restaurants, the choices are endless. Rooms are large and clean as what you would expect from a luxury resort. Plantation Bay is suitable for the whole family with activities to suit young and old. The beach itself is nothing too great and the place is expensive, a common thing you will find staying at any of the upper market resorts in Mactan! Sometimes you just have to spoil yourself a little, forget the costs and enjoy one of Cebu’s unique resorts.
