A Day in Paradise

9 May

Summer heat is to hot to handle around the metro, sweating here and there with the combination of the pollution. So me and my cousin went on a trip to Cebu, Philippines to enjoy the heat at the beach! It’s only about an hour flight from Manila to Cebu so it’s a quick getaway!

We went to Shangri-la Mactan Spa and Resort, aside from it’s famous name I believe that Shangri-la Mactan has the most beautiful beach in Cebu not to mention their friendly staff and great service.

Please ignore my happy feet because I got carried away with view. 🙂

Good Morning World!

They also have kiddie pools and adult pools if your not into sands and salt water. The view is also superb with their own infinity pool and they also got a water massage on the side, truly perfect for relaxation.

A perfect clean blue pool with matching trees and flowers to relax you.

In case you get bored, they also offer several water sports such as jetski, scuba diving, para-sailing, snorkling and lot more!

When your hungry stomach decided to disturb you no worries there are plenty of food and beverage outlets near the beach and pool.

The other part of the beach which is nearer to the Ocean View rooms has a finer sand and less crowded than the one nearer on the bar.

Truly a perfect place for relaxation! You should give it a try!
