IF you haven’t planned yet where to spend the holiday weekends, Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu is having itself a merry Swissmas and is inviting people to join them in the most heartwarming holiday of the year, Swiss style.
Planning a getaway for a big group? Good for up to eight persons, the Ibiza Loft is an ideal choice for large or joint family stays or with friends. The two-storey suite has three bedrooms, four toilets and baths, a pantry, dining area, living area with a large flatscreen TV and probably best of all, its own hot tub Jacuzzi that can fit just about everybody in the group. Those staying at the Ibiza Loft are entitled to hassle-free checkout on the Executive Floor, where guests can enjoy complimentary coffee and other beverages while waiting comfortably and away from the bustle of the main lobby during peak checkout time.
As the loft is situated 22 floors up, it offers gorgeous ocean views and the changing colors of the sky. Watch it turn from bright blue during the day, to dreamy pinks at dusk, to pitch black dotted with sparkling stars. One can sit for hours just soaking in the Jacuzzi or lounging around the suite, but the aqua blue waters below will prove to be too tempting for most to resist. Read a book at the well-maintained beach front with its soft white sand, or meet some curious schools of fish as you swim out to the floating deck by the Ibiza Club.
The hotel welcomes walk-ins for dinner every day with its new themed buffet concepts at Sails restaurant: East Meets West, Mediterranean, seafood and Filipino, each offering an excellent variety of dishes. On Christmas Eve for dinner and Christmas Day for lunch, the restaurant is offering a special Swissmas Feast including premium seafood like oysters, prawns, crabs and scallops, roast turkey on the carvery and certainly not to be missed, Cebu boneless lechon. Children 11 years old and below will get a 50 percent discount.
Wherever and however you choose to celebrate this year, a merry little Christmas to us all!
