Cabana Moalboal Cebu, A True Shelter For All Races

"Chill Out, You Deserve A Break!" There goes this overused line of Corporate slaves and employees out there. But indeed, everybody needs to chill. Take a break from a busy and hurry world and find peace while enjoying the amazing offerings of our Nature. This is what I did last weekend in the famous Diving Spot of the South, Moalboal Cebu. At Cabana Beach Club Resort's sea view, I inhaled the good vibes and exhaled the bad vibes.

Real Talk! It's very hard to look for a beach-front accommodation designed not just for the Foreign Tourists but also for the Locals. Sometimes, we ended up setting up tents or getting a sleepover to a friend's room. But if you wish to enjoy Moalboal Cebu, you should try Cabana Beach Club Resort to ease the pain of having a difficulty in looking for a comfortable yet affordable shelter.

During our weekend stay, we had a comfortable room in Sole E' Mare Beach Resort. Not just that, our room is just a stone-throw away from Cabana Restaurant or the sea view. In addition, their rooms are very clean plus the kitchen utensils are well prepared and placed. And before I forgot, their air-cons are working (not like other Resorts in Moalboal!)

SUMPTUOUS DISHES

Of course, a great vacation won't be complete without a delicious menu from Marina Cucina Italiana International Cuisine. Because picture paints a thousand words, then let me tease you on the dishes that Marina Cucina offers.

WATER ACTIVITIES

Moalboal is widely known as the Best Diving Spot Cebu in which you can witness different kinds of sea creatures. Personally, if you are an adventure junkie then I recommend you should choose Cabana Resort for your accommodation as they will be arranging your water activities depending on what your preference is. To name a few, you can choose either Island Hopping in Pescador Island or
Turtle Watching in Talisay Point and maybe try the very famous Sardine Run just in front of Cabana Beach Club Resort.

A Day With Hospitable And Brilliant Host, Marriott

Friday is complete with coffee and friends. But it is more complete if you ended it with a booze, sumptuous dishes and of course some good stories. These I enjoyed and experienced in a day with Marriott. Yes, with Cebu City Marriott Hotel.

True to its goal of being a brilliant host, Cebu City Marriott Hotel never fails to surprise us.

Presscon with Megaworld's Lechon Festival in The Mactan Newtown

I came early like before 11 AM. Actually, I was very early for a 12 noon presscon of the first Lechon Festival in Lapu-Lapu City. I couldn't help but appreciate the effort of the waitress who came and helped me with my wifi access. Why mention this? Of course, if you don't know, Cebu City Marriott Hotel got the fastest internet speed in Cebu. And for Millennials, internet is life! You're welcome!

Coffee and Cake For PHP 250 Only

When past 2 in the afternoon came, I headed to the lobby and waited for my Blogger friends. Now, here's a formula to all my Bloggers and Social Media friends. Coffee + Cake + Fast Internet = Chill with Work or Leisure. Yes! And this offerings if just for PHP 250. And oh, did I mention it's unlimited coffee? It's available everyday from 2-5 PM until September 30, 2017! I think, this is an amazing deal than checking in to expensive Coffee shops with some crappy internet connection. Promise, I personally recommend this kind of promo.

Hawaian Night by the Pool

Oh! Then we had dinner at the Great Room. Sumptuous dinner such as chicken, crispy pata and some fruits to ready our tummy for a night full of music and booze. What's amazing with Cebu Marriott, if you are a member of their Club Marriott, then you'll get free access to events, gatherings and promos offered by the Hotel. And luckily, we were invited to witness what is the Hawaian-kind of chill last Friday. I think that was the real definition of "Chill". Dance, food, drinks - they got a good glass of mojitos!

Such a festive night in Cebu City Marriott Hotel

===========================================================

Running from July 22 to August 13 at the Mactan Alfresco, a 500-seater dining hall inspired by Singaporean hawker centers inside the 30-hectare township, the grand food festivity gathers Cebu’s top lechon-makers in a three-week long celebration aimed at giving tourists and local folks alike a genuine Cebuano gastronomic and cultural experience.

 “This festival really puts the spotlight on the Cebu lechon, a world-class and truly Filipino dish hailed by many as the world’s best pork dish. We have gathered Cebu’s finest lechon-makers in Mactan Alfresco as we look to share this unique culinary experience to local and foreign tourists, while immersing them to the rich Cebuano culture through cultural performances and fun activities,” says Kevin Tan , senior vice president and head of Megaworld Lifestyle Malls.

A wide selection of lechon dishes from Cebu’s top lechon-makers plus amazing deals on the Cebuano delicacy will greet guests at Mactan Alfresco during the festival’s run, while live entertainment featuring musical and cultural performances will provide an added treat to dining guests every evening.

Mactan Alfresco is also offering an even more immersive way of experiencing the world-famous delicacy through its very own Lechon Pit. Guests can witness firsthand how the lechon is made—from seasoning to roasting at the coal pit to being chopped and served on their own plates. To learn more about the history of Cebu, educational installations and interactive displays about Lechon will also be placed around in the venue.

Highlighting the festival is the much-awaited Grand Lechon Parade, happening on August 4. Culinary schools and representatives from barangays will also take part in cooking demos featuring different and never-seen-before Lechon recipes. To further boost the festive mood, a street dance competition and live performances will also be held at the venue.

Quezon National Highway (also known as the Mactan Island Circumferential Road) and a few minutes away from the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, The Mactan Newtown is home to award-winning residential condominium and office towers, shops, schools, hotels, mall, and commercial hubs, as well as leisure and recreational facilities.
