Utzurrum: Call us Home: Plantation Bay Resort and Spa

The Scene

Having tough, lockdown blues? Patiently waiting for the new normal to take effect? Look no further! At the posh 20-acre Plantation Bay Resort and Spa Mactan, you can choose a long-term shelter stay in a five-star resort.

Ambience-wise, the resort offers high-end guestrooms, for that pampered feel. Soak yourself in a secured, quiet escape from this lengthy pandemic.

The resort offers a fantastic plantation air, complete with mature tree shades, sandy beach spots, spacious, level grounds ideal for morning hikes, biking or even wheelchair practice.

When done with leisure activities, you can choose from four outstanding dining places where you can feast on sumptuous Mediterranean delicacies, fresh Asian seafood and international and Filipino comfort food.

In comparison, some other resorts offer tourist rates for local pandemic “refugees,” while Plantation Bay reverses this by charging a lower rate to suit the abnormal situation but not sacrificing the high-end residential feel.

A tip for condo and house dwellers: Think of simplicity! Postpone the usual household tasks like pruning the garden, fixing leaky faucets and busted bulbs and paying bills. At the resort, you have only one bill to settle and you can leave those other worries to someone else. Relax!

Likewise, the resort has tempting retirement plans to Filipino-Americans and other nationalities by offering them a year-round residence, while they evaluate where in the country they would like to settle down.

Liberate yourself during this difficult period. There are four swimming pools, four salt-water lagoons, tennis courts, an archery site, climbing walls, lending library, Japanese-themed spa with therapists, scuba and marine sports facilities. All these come with courteous and well-trained staff at your beck and call.

Come and live high for less than the cost of living average, only at your private beach estate, Plantation Bay Resort and Spa. So affordable, so luxurious!
