A slice of paradise

WHILE most can only close their eyes and have their thoughts drift to a tropical escape, guests at Pacific Cebu Resort can truly experience it with all five senses. A chic retreat in Marigondon, Lapu-Lapu City, the resort has a collection of 134 tastefully appointed rooms including thatched villas set among palm trees on 6.5 hectares of lush greenery and fascinating foliage. It is a seamless blend of nature and modern comforts, guaranteed to give one a taste of the island life at its best.

A part of sáv Hospitality’s innovative portfolio of hotels, resorts and spas located in some of the best vacation destinations in the world, Pacific Cebu—with its spa treatments, dining options, and service staff that are attentive but not intrusive—promises a one-of-a-kind stay that will impress even the most spoiled.

But that is just part of the equation.

What many don’t know is that it is also home to P.C. Divers—a professional PADI Gold Palm Diving Resort and PADI Instructor Development Center equipped with state-of-the-art dive facilities. It is one of the country’s top diving centers, issuing thousands of licenses each year. Its team of professional instructors and dive masters offer PADI training courses and specialty courses with varying degrees of difficulty.

Aside from the diving spots around Hilutungan, Taliman and Nalusuan, Pacific Cebu’s house reef sets the stage for some of the most prolific sea life encounters one could possibly have in his life. Those waterproof cameras had better be ready for those creatures on display in technicolor. Another attraction—and reason to get started on those diving lessons—is the resort’s underwater love locks.

The picturesque underwater realm may be hard to leave, but there are equally amazing activities that await above the waves. Pacific Cebu has some engaging non-diving action such as kayaking, paddle-boarding and parasailing. Island hopping tours and island picnics may even be arranged upon request.

Whether one is looking to take in that glorious sunset with his favorite cocktail in hand, feast on a beach lunch or dinner, take a leisurely stroll along the 600-meter causeway, roll in the sand or just roll in bed in between immaculate sheets, he is certainly in for a unique and enriching experience—one that Pacific Cebu Resort has been providing guests with since 1992.
