From Business to bai-cations

Say hello to the newest stunner on the Mandaue City skyline. Promising to bring a blend of warm local hospitality and world-class service, the two-tower, 668-room bai Hotel Cebu—the biggest hotel in the Visayas and Mindanao—is set to redefine the tourism industry in the city.

General manager Alfred Reyes, a seasoned hotelier, shared how bai Hotel exceeded expectations when it soft opened in September 2017 with only 200 of its total number of guest rooms open to the public.

“We are in the manufacturing part of Cebu. And somehow, with the entry of bai into the market, things have started to change, to become busier. It complements the area, which is now abuzz with activities and developments. Before we know it, Mandaue will become another business district,” he said.

A little over a year later, all deluxe, premier, executive, family and presidential suites and rooms are now fully operational, ready to welcome both business and leisure markets, locals and tourists alike.

Apart from thoughtfully designed architecture and interiors, and tastefully fitted accommodations, guests are spoilt for choice with eight diverse dining outlets.

“In selecting the kind of cuisine each food and beverage outlet would be serving, we made sure it’s what the market needs and what customers will keep coming back for,” Reyes explained.

The hotel’s location along Ouano Ave., North Reclamation Area makes it a prime piece of property as it is a short distance from the city’s premier hospitals, major shopping malls, ports and business districts. It’s no surprise that in its first year, it has been the venue of choice of multiple conventions and celebrations. Families also love their weekend staycations at bai as it has amenities like an outdoor infinity lap pool, a spa, and a fitness center with sauna that can cater to guests of all ages.
