Immersive, One-of-a-Kind Resort

SEE. Tired of resorts that look just like city hotels in your hometown? Plantation Bay is built like a village, with most rooms directly fronting an extensive private lagoon and artificial beaches.

Eye-soothing low-rise architecture. Comfortable, well-appointed, spacious (at least 46 square meters, 490 square feet) rooms with elegant bathrooms (separate tub and shower, large counter area). Romantic King 4-Posters in some rooms, practical two Queens in others. Multi-generation families, couples, singles, business-persons, and work-from-home types happily co-exist here.

DO. Just 30 minutes to the airport (free transfers) or the center of Cebu City, yet MORE leisure activities than any other resort in the country. Most of the usual marine activities. Scuba (dive sites just offshore or 15 minutes by boat), island cruises and picnics, wall-climbing, archery, tennis, pickleball, badminton, Arcade Games, Gym, Children’s Boot Camp and daily activities, Botanical Tour, Bird-watching guide, Imaginative Team-Building Games, Diabolic Dunking Device, Duodecathlon Fun Challenge, golf (nearby), mall/shopping/gaming (about 20 minutes by free shuttle), whale-shark watching and other excursions (whole day). But wait, there’s more!

TASTE. Four distinctive restaurants — Asian-Seafood by the sea, with indoor or under-the-stars dining; elegant Mediterranean-Steak in a stunning Art Nouveau setting; an authentic American Diner; and a fresh-air International coffee shop surrounded by the main swimming pool and the saltwater lagoon. All serve superb dishes, some of which we proudly say are the best of their kind. Come discover how we can claim that. Click here to see some of the dishes we’re most proud of, and why.

FEEL. A Japanese-inspired health and relaxation Spa unlike any other, a resort within the Resort. Hot, cold, and saltwater pools, needle-shower, waterfall, sauna, steam-bath, manicure, hair-trim, and full range of therapies.

Experience genuine service from the friendliest and most helpful staff, and a strict No-Tipping Policy so you can relax and enjoy yourself, without having to constantly worry about whom, when, or how much to tip. Come, and find out for yourself.

MORE space per guest than any other resort in the world anywhere near this price range. 11 has. (28 acres) for 250 rooms. Four large freshwater swimming pools and huge central lagoon. No fights over pool loungers, and everyone is always front-line. Yet, unlike any of our competition in Mactan, safe for responsible older children to be left to themselves; our layout explains why.

HEAR. Peace and Quiet. Telephones and audible electronics are strictly prohibited in the gym, Spa, and most dining venues. Parents are enjoined to ensure their children don’t bother others with repeated screaming or crying tantrums. High noise levels also endanger guest safety as they desensitize staff, who might not respond to a genuine emergency as tragically happens in many resorts around the world. Unlike most hotels, Plantation Bay actually enforces its rules and policies. Ill-behaved, self-entitled people and Telephone Addicts will not be happy here; please book elsewhere.

But if you want a real break from your high-stress life, we’re the resort for you.
