What the hotel offers
A resort in a class of its own. Set in 11 hectares of secluded grounds yet only one hour (when traffic is bad) from Cebu City, Plantation Bay offers one of the largest privately-owned waterways in the world, with the clean elegance of colonial-plantation architecture. Decompress from life’s pressures in the healing tranquility of an environment that truly feels “away from it all.” If you have ever spent time at a tropical plantation, you know what we mean. If not, come and discover a refreshingly different Flavor of Life. Whether you’re traveling for a family vacation or romantic getaway, for business or pleasure, this is far and away your best choice in the Philippines.

Within our price range in the country, we have the nicest rooms: bright, spacious, beautifully-furnished (many with mahogany 4-poster full-canopy king beds), many with panoramic views, almost all equipped with deep, shady verandas that will make you feel like a hacendero (plantation owner). The best bathrooms: separate shower, custom-made steeping tub, ample counter space, lovely stone and marble finishes. The most charming architecture: low-rise colonial plantation style, and (unlike most resorts, where you have to walk 10 minutes to get from your room to the pool) every room is only a short distance from lagoons, pools, sandy areas, trees, seafront, and myriad leisure facilities.
