Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan
Powdery white sand, 40 pool villas, and a guarantee of peace and quiet – these are few of the many things that keep Crimson Resort & Spa Mactan stand out from the rest. Located in the island of Mactan, this small and very exclusive resort has truly set the standard with their superb service and hospitality.
I’ve been to some of the best resorts in Cebu but nowhere else have I experienced the warmness of the staff and the quality of service they provide at Crimson.
From the lobby, we were greeted by the warmest welcome from one of their staff and were served with a refreshing drink of iced tea. The check-in process was smooth and soon enough, we found ourselves in a pleasurable ride through Crimson’s luxuriant gardens and down to our villa.
We were lucky enough to have booked their most exclusive accommodation, the Ocean Front Private Pool Villa. It is a one-bedroom type villa with an unimpeded view of the ocean.
We got to the resort at sundown and the view of the ocean glimmering from the moonshine was a sight to behold. The villa had an Asian contemporary design. Everything was of premium quality – even the little accents that adorned the walls.
The canopy bed was accentuated with fine sheer drapery. The curtain window from the bedroom overlooks the plunge pool and the ocean, giving it an even more romantic ambiance.
At dinner time, we decided to stay in and ordered room service. The seafood and steak we ordered was a perfect pair with the complimentary red wine. At midnight we took a dip at the plunge pool while enjoying the blueberry cheesecake we bought from the in-house bakery for half the price.
In the morning, we had breakfast at the Saffron Café. The food was excellent and the view to the infinity pool was a great way to start the day. The servers were all exuding a happy aura. They were always generous with their smiles and greetings.
We then took a walk at the powdery white sand beach.
After breakfast, we chose to have a more private time and took a swim in our private plunge pool.
Everything was perfect. Even up to the moment we checked out. Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan has truly set a new standard in service and luxury.
What is COVERRR?
Home to hundreds of white sand beaches, natural landscapes, untouched wonders, and the ever hospitable Filipinos, the Philippines is no doubt one of the best places on Earth. The islands to visit, the seas to dive, the mountains to trek, the rich culture to experience – all these attract tourists from all over the world. But with poor tourism planning and awareness, the Philippines will soon be just another forgotten paradise. Over the years, it helped our economy grow tremendously. But with very little awareness among the locals and tourists, a lot of our natural wonders have sadly been slowly deteriorating. Coverrr aims to bring Filipinos together to showcase the beautiful places of the Philippines to the world while at the same time raise awareness on how one can take part in preserving these natural wonders so that our future generations may also benefit from them.
