When In Manila, the daily routine can be monotonous. The cure, I think, is to travel–to experience as many new places and create as many meaningful relationships as possible. Such was my experience in Cebu recently and I’m overjoyed to share my must-try places to eat and chill when in Cebu.
III. Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu
When in Cebu, I would highly suggest staying at Mövenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu. The view is stunning and the ambiance is inviting.
The Sails restaurant
You can dine around the world at The Sails, a themed buffet concept that features a different gastronomic delight everyday.
- Mondays – East Meets West
- Tuesdays & Thursdays – Mediterranean
- Wednesdays – Seafood
- Fridays – Filipino
- Saturdays & Sundays – Explore Asia
I arrived on Friday and was treated to some of our local delicacies from kare-kare to kakanin. There was also a cultural show and traditional harana at the beach garden.
- Mövenpick Ice Cream: Swiss Chocolate, Pistachio

Ibiza Beach Club
Ibiza Beach Club is Mövenpick Cebu’s premier party destination. You can drink, dine, and dance to the beat. At 9:00pm, you’ll get to watch live performances of Latin, Brazilian, Broadway, movie musical, pop, and retro-themed dance numbers.
If you’re not visiting Cebu anytime soon, don’t fret. Ibiza Beach Club will open a branch in BGC next year!
