Mactan resorts reopening doors after rehab, repair

TYPHOON Odette-hit resorts in Lapu-Lapu City, Cebu are re-opening their doors to tourists just in time for the summer season.

Five-star resort Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa officially reopened its resort on Tuesday, March 1, 2022 after it rehabilitated its property from the devastation of the super typhoon Odette that hit some parts of the Visayas and Mindanao on Dec. 16, 2021.

“Delightful experiences await friends and family as the well-loved five-star resort reintroduces delectable cuisine, exciting room promotions and their Shangri-la signature service, for that long-awaited tropical getaway,” the resort said.

As a treat to its valued clients, the resort is offering a rate of at least P8,000 inclusive of an overnight stay, breakfast for two persons, P1,500 net dining credits per night, guaranteed late check-out at 4 p.m. and complimentary use of snorkel set.

Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan is also reopening its doors in April.

Mia Sy, area director for public relations and marketing communications of Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan, said they’ll be opening some 122 rooms out of 290 by April while they continue repairing and building again Azure Beach Club and the resort’s ocean villas, which were both badly damaged by Typhoon Odette (Rai).

Plantation Bay Resort and Spa, on the other hand, is giving out promotions for the entire month of March.

In its Facebook page, it said it is offering an P11,000 rate for two night stays from Sunday to Thursday and P12,000 for two days from Friday to Saturday with breakfast for two. Booking and stay date is good for the whole month of March.

Paige Ginete, who heads the resort’s marketing and communications, said the resort is opening 20 percent of its total room inventory to still accommodate guests while they continue the repair works of their other rooms.

But the lagoons, pools and other amenities are already running. The resort has about 255 rooms.

Meanwhile, Department of Tourism 7 Director Shahlimar Tamano said resorts in Lapu-Lapu City reaped “millions” in sales during the three-day International Travel Festival (ITF) 2022 held in February.

Tamano hailed the ITF 2022 as a success, saying the activity boosted the interest of Filipinos in traveling once again, at least domestically.

It has also helped the accommodation sector bounce back from the economic slump due to the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic.
