THE island of Cebu is known for having the perfect blend of lifestyle and business destinations. With several world-class hotels situated within the metro, Cebu Parklane International Hotel is one among many hotels that live to serve both lifestyle and business seekers.

The hotel, known for its iconic blue motif and edifice, first opened its doors in 2006 and was set amid a growing industry. With 241 rooms, a gym and a pool, Cebu Parklane International Hotel is ideal for leisure seekers and business travelers.

On July 11, Cebu Parklane International Hotel celebrated its 16th anniversary through a banquet held at the hotel’s Victoria Hall with the theme, “People, Purpose, Passion.” The intimate gathering kicked off with a speech from Parklane’s president, Basil Ting, and chief of operations, Cenelyn Manguilimotan. The event was also graced by the presence of Department of Tourism 7 chief of tourism development division Gelena Dimpas, second district councilor Dondon Hontiveros, and the hotel’s board of directors.

Apart from the celebration of Parklane’s milestones, it highlighted the Parklane Hotels & Resorts logo, and tagline, “Distinctly Local.” Its newest chief executive chef, Clifford Lee, whipped up a four-course meal that was presented to Parklane’s stakeholders.

One can also expect greater things in the future as Parklane has several property development plans in mind for Cebu and Bohol. Cebu Parklane International Hotel has endured through so much in the past two years, yet against all odds, it celebrated 16 successful years in the hotel industry.

Cebu Parklane International Hotel is located on North Escario St., Cebu City, just across Cebu Business Park.
