Shangrila Mactan Resort and Spa
One of the top choices is this posh 13-hectare 5-star with 537 bright and airy modern Filipino-style rooms each with a balcony facing the sprawling tropical garden or the sea. It has its own private beach cove, two swimming pools, putting greens and its own 6-hectare marine sanctuary. Scotty’s Dive Center is in charge of underwater adventures and watersports including jetski, windsurfing or parasailing. Grownups can try out the various natural treatments at Chi Spa Village with private villas, treatment pavilions and a water garden with hydro tubs and steam rooms. It is not called the ideal family resort for nothing as kids will have a lot of fun at the 3-level Adventure Zone, E-zone with arcade games and a Toddler Zone.
