Plantation Bay May 2012

This was my second time at Plantation Bay after more than a decade since I first went there. At least this time, we went there during the day so I sure did take my time taking a lot of photos on the scenery, environment, facilities, accommodations and the FOOD!




Plantation Bay is located in Mactan Island in Cebu Philippines and is one of a few well known resorts. Last May, I was lucky that our company outing was held there.

THE FOOD

I was curious if the food that our company chose was as good as my first time when I ate dinner there. And boy, if only I was like 10 years younger, I could have gotten to round 3. But alas, my current age could not bear to go another around. I really loved that shrimp appetizer.

Frankly speaking, all the food served to us were delicious! Check out these delectable cuisine from appetizers to the main course and the desserts! It was a hearty feast.


Even after watching all the photos, I still can't get these off my mind. Once you get the chance to eat here, expect yourself to bloat because you will surely take a bite at any food served to you.

THE ROOM

The room's pretty big. I forgot to ask what kind of accommodation was given to us so we could dress up and change. They gave us 2 king's sized beds I think. Their bathroom's pretty big too.



If you end up checking in Plantation Bay on a hot summer day, the room provides the perfect solace to cozy yourself or just hang out at your unit's lanai.


WHAT TO DO ...

Swimming is the very first thing that people do and think of when they are in resorts. However, Plantation Bay also offers a bevy of other activities for those who get bored from swimming all day.

You and your friends can play beach volleyball, kayaking, tennis, basketball, ride around the area in bicycles, rock climbing and my favorite: archery! Oh yeah, they also have water slides so it is not just a bore for those who do not know how to swim.



I definitely would not mind if our company outing will be held again here. In fact, I would definitely say yes right away! The food is great, swimming is not the only thing you can do there and the scenery is just breathtaking!

You might end up with a full camera memory card from taking too many pics ;).

thanks for sharing this. i checked the websites and the resort is pretty big.

so many pools and so many things to do.

even a night's stay looks to be more than worth it.

Very nice place! Beautiful photos! Kids will truly enjoy their stay there. I hope we can visit Plantation Bay again :-)

plantation bay is pricey so be sure you are ready to shell out money from your wallet.

but rest assured, it will be worth it!

been to plantation said...

ive been to that resort before. i had a blast! there are many pools and lagoons so there will always be a place for everyone to swim or just wet themselves.

even on a hot weather there are pools with trees near them so you can relax under the shade

It's a good timing that I found this website because I was searching for more feedback about this resort, plantation bay. My husband is in the Philippines at the moment and we are planning to treat his mother and some members of the family by bringing them to Plantation Bay. I've heard so much good things about it especially from my sister.

Your experiences (and the photos) posted on this website from food to facilities show that people will get the value of their money. Exciting place to be!

I look forward to go there too when I go home early next year.

Thanks for the information! Cheers!

i had heard so many good things about plantation bay. in cebu, it is mostly shangrila and plantation bay that people recommend when it comes to good resorts.

definitely will be checking this place out when i get the chance to visit cebu

sonny said...

plantation bay is unique and i have to say that this is one of the must try resorts in cebu.

even while we stayed most of our time there, there were many things that we were able to do without forcing ourselves to go to the city.

the scenery is breathtaking, those trigger happy camera fingers will keep themselves occupied

iphone said...

i can attest that the food is excellent.

while i cannot compare the food from other resorts because I have not tried them, i can assure you that you will get your money's worth when you eat here!
