A soon-to-rise oasis at the chasm of Bantayan Island, The Ocoy Hotel and Villas capture the very essence of paradise. The tropical destination offers a glimpse of luxurious accommodations that extend beyond opulence; it presents an experience that feels both like home and an escape.

In a remarkable celebration of luxury, nature, and community building, a groundbreaking ceremony and press launch took place on September 6, 2023, unveiling the much-anticipated prestigious development on the breathtaking shores of Bantayan Island, Cebu.

The back-to-back events marked the inception of a unique destination that seamlessly blends luxury with the charm of local culture and the magnificence of the island’s landscapes.

The groundbreaking ceremony was graced by the presence of Governor Gwendolyn Garcia, Ed Calma, the architect behind the project, and Philswiss United Holding Corp. executives and the board of directors.

Philswiss United Corp. Chairman Heinz Zimmermann shared how this project is a perfect amalgamation of Filipino and Swiss hospitality. “I look forward to the mingling of Swiss hospitality practices with the warmth of Filipino hospitality.”

Additionally, he shared: “Every aspect of The Ocoy Hotel and Villas has been meticulously crafted to provide an unparalleled experience—from the stunning architecture to the serene surroundings; this project is a tribute to both luxury and the natural beauty of Bantayan Island.”

With the pristine beaches, lush landscape, and the vibrant culture of the island, The Ocoy Hotel and Villas are set to establish a precedent of traveling in style. The breathtaking Bantayan Island serves as a rich tapestry that backdrops The Ocoy Hotel and Villas, weaving a story of natural beauty and cultural heritage.

It is no secret how Bantayan Island is rich in flora and fauna; Architect Ed Calma wanted to instill that in the conceptualization of the development. “We will keep the trees that surround the property, and even add coconut trees to make it more tropical in aura.”

Calma also emphasized how important it is to take drastic measures in protecting mangrove sites that are the heart of the environmental landscape of Bantayan.

The project boasts 101 luxury pool villas that redefine opulence. Each villa is meticulously designed to provide an elegant and modern living space, adorned with high-quality materials and an exceptional interior design concept.

Beyond the lavish accommodations, The Ocoy Hotel & Villas present an array of amenities, including two exclusive restaurants and bars offering culinary delights that celebrate local and international flavors. The wellness and spa facilities provide an oasis of relaxation, while sports enthusiasts can enjoy facilities like basketball and tennis courts. Families are welcomed with a dedicated kids’ club and family pool, ensuring that every guest finds their slice of paradise.

The Ocoy Hotel and Villas are set to elevate the hospitality industry on Bantayan Island to the next level. With its state-of-the-art amenities and unique architecture, the luxury hotel will bolster Bantayan Island in Cebu’s tourism radar as a top-of-the-line tropical destination
