Last November I was invited to a 4d/3n staycation at Movenpick Resort Hotel in Mactan Cebu. The Reosrt is the only 5-star facility in Mactan Island Cebu. It is located at Punta Engano Lapu-lapu City, just a few meters away from the famed Mactan Shrine.
Movenpick is an international brand of Resort Hotel based in Switzerland. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the friendly staff and checked in to my room.
Its posh, stylish and fab. It’s Radisson Blu Hotel. I just a short span of time Radisson Blu has emerged as one of the top picks among the business travelers.
Recently the hotel has been ranked by Travel Advisor as one of the best 5star hotels in Cebu.
And I am just so lucky to have stayed here for a night recently when I explored the Queen City of the South.
I was recently in Cebu to to attend an event where Radisson Blu introduced their newest chef, Lee Seung Joon.
Chef Lee is officially joining the Radisson Blu team, expanding the hotel’s international culinary army which already includes Chinese, Italian and Filipino chefs.
Part of the traveling experience is sampling the local foods or delicacies. And as a travel blogger I always make it a point to try to foods that the locals eat, foods that has placed a city or a community in the gastronomic map.
Cebu may have been all too familiar to me, but I must admit that I am not really familiar wit its local dishes. We may have known lechon, otap rosquillos and danggit but there’s more to that in Cebu, I swear!
