Plantation Bay Resort and Spa, Cebu ( Part 2 of 2)

Plantation Bay also offers a day trip package which costs Php2,000 per person. Children 4-12 yrs old get 50% discount while 3 years old and below are free of charge.

I asked my sister: Which resort did you like the most? Shangrila's Mactan or Plantation Bay?

Here's my verdict:
Food- I love the food at Shangrila's Mactan
Room- I love the soft and comfy bed at Shangrila's Mactan
Beach- I love the beach at Shangrila's Mactan. The beach at Plantation bay is quite small.

Which resort will I choose If I were to go back? I'd definitely love to go back to Plantation bay! My sister liked Shangrila's Mactan better than Plantation bay because of the elegance of the hotel and it's classy feel. I just love the laid back and cozy atmosphere at Plantation bay and I think the swimming pools are also way better. The kilimanjaro swimming pool has several water jets, jacuzzi, bubblers, sprinklers and a cave with whirpool. It can never get crowded at the resort because of the huge swimming area. The next time I go back, I'll absolutely avail the special indulgence spa package!

The next day after having breakfast, we went kayaking.



East Saltwater swimming lagoon



Ykaie in the Gazebo



Gorgeous isn't it?



We are twitter's trending topic! We bought matching tops from Whatever.




Behind are the Water's edge rooms. I was supposed to reserve for a Water's edge room but with a hyperactive kid like Ykaie who is always excited to dip in the water, it is just not advisable.



Lunch by the pool



Want some coconut juice?














This is the beach. It's this small. What you see is what you get. ( Who needs the beach when you can also have fun swimming in the man made lagoon!)

michi said...

may beach pala plantation kala ko pool lang. nasa list ko to ng "must see resort" =)

Sey said...

If I were to choose - I will choose Plantation Bay too. The kayak (which I wanted to try) and water edge room made me giggle and excited.

You're right, who needs a big beach area when you can enjoy the other amenities.

mathea said...

Sumi Go said...

Loving your shirts! :) Anyway, I like how the Plantation Bay looks on the photos, but I think I'll take the day tour package of Shangrila Mactan on our upcoming Cebu trip.. ^^ We're biased 'cause we love food and the beach.

suituapui said...

So nice to be you... Having so much fun and so happy all the time.

Awww, I love the matching shirts =)
Ganyan talaga kahit magkapatid, magkaiba pa rin ang gusto. I could see both sides, parang masarap pareho e!
Naku inggit kami, nakapunta kayo sa ZubuChon ni Marketman! Isa yan sa mga gusto naming balikan sa Cebu! Mega inggetz

Jellybelly said...

Super vacation! I want to try Zubu Chon. Hopefully one of my friends bring this as pasalubong for me. I heard Cebu lechon is really good!

Mrs. Kolca said...

Ishmael Fischer Ahab said...

Marami akong naririnig na masarap daw ang Zubu Chon. Sayang at hindi ko nasipang tikman yan noong nasa Cebu ako last year.

Sammy Nams said...

Zubuchon is SOOOO good! I had it for the first time this past December and fell in love.

Chatty said...

wow, big girl na si Ykaie! Loved the matching shirts! :)

vin said...

love the shirts. mapapatingin ka talaga hehe

Cee S. said...

I love your shirts too! So cool!

Judging from the pictures posted, parang mas type ko sa Plantation Bay, yun nga lang parang maliit yung portion ng beach. Pero really a nice place for a staycation.

Tin | The Average Jane said...

Plantation bay's one of my dream destinations! Sana makapunta soon. *sigh*

Btw, love the shirts! =)
