Discerning holiday travelers often search for dream destinations coupled with properties that go the extra mile. This brings us unforgettable memories of moments to remember.

The recent opening of the Sheraton Cebu Mactan Resort, part of Marriott Bonvoys with a portfolio of 30 extraordinary brands, is determined to be the newest place to relax, recharge, and recover — particularly for stressed-out city dwellers.

Located along the Punta Engaño Road on Mactan Island, the 261-room beachfront hideaway offers captivating views of the Hilutungan Channel, considered one of Cebu’s richest marine sanctuaries and Olango Island, known for its flyways for migratory birds.
