A sprawling sanctuary bounded by shimmering emerald waters and ivory sand, and shaded by tall, rustling palms, Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan stretches across six hectares on Cebu’s stunning Mactan Island. Just a 20-minute drive from the international airport, the resort is designed for romantic getaways, family vacations and guests looking to enjoy laidback tropical elegance. 250 guestrooms combine modern conveniences with neo-Asian décor and contemporized native accents. With thatched roofs and a generously-sized sleeping quarter, deluxe rooms are perfect for the modest retreat seekers. Chic bed chambers are furnished with classic white linens and Maplewood, but still expect modern touches such as rain shower en suite and plush soaking tubs.
