Shopping

Plantation Bay Bazaar (in front of the lobby). Fine-quality gifts and handicrafts made of seashell, semi-precious stones, wood – most not available anywhere else! Apparel, woven items, and special-order foods. Useful bags and travel items designed by us, with frequent travellers in mind. South Seas jewelry and genuine pearls. Concert-quality guitars. The Plantation Bay coffee-table books (two different books, 2008 and 2016).

Plantation Bay’s Weekend Flea Market (around the Bazaar). (Actually, it’s open every day.) Snack foods, souvenirs, and a wide range of inexpensive items that are either useful or cute. Low prices! All the fun of shopping in a public market, with none of the hassles, and safe from swindlers, bag-snatchers, and pickpockets.

Poppa Banana (second floor of the Bazaar, in front of the lobby). Convenience store. Groceries, cigarettes, quick bites. Also featuring Filipino, Korean, and Japanese drinks and packaged goods.

Jamaica Market (near Kilimanjaro Kafé, the hotel’s coffee shop). Snacks and sundry items. Chips, drinks, candy, magazines. Beach and swimwear, sandals, sunglasses. Small souvenir items. Personal toiletries, sunblock.

Major Malls (Ayala, SM). Cebu has several full-range malls, comparable to those found in major US cities, with restaurants, movie theatres, electronics, clothing, etc., etc. Plantation Bay provides inexpensive shuttle transportation to both Ayala Center and SM. Coming next year: boat ferry transportation to the South Reclamation shopping complex, aboard Plantation Bay’s own fast, air-conditioned ferry.
