If you are not familiar with the waterpark on the rooftop of a mall, here’s your chance to get the details that you need.

Yes, we do have a wave pool here in Cebu and it is huge! The Hidden Valley Wave Pool has several smaller pools in the resort, but one that stands out is the most fun of them all– the wave pool.

It mimics the natural waves of the beach and into the man-made swimming pool– thus, increasing the fun for people who are afraid of saltwater and the deep.

It is not a surprise as to why the Cebuanos love suggesting this place to others when seeking recommendations for luxury and fun combined. Plantation Bay Resort & Spa is a pro at providing high-class services to every individual and it sure is worth it every time.

More than a luxurious stay, the resort offers tremendously large-sized pools of clean water, water slides, kayaking and gondola rides, water volleyball, and even a water volcano.

Rates

The most affordable room on their website is priced at 160++ USD, poolside. The price goes up as the location gets nearer to the attractions at 220++ USD per night. For day use, you will only have to pay 2,000 pesos during weekday trips and 2,000 during the weekends. For more info about the rates and inclusions, please visit their website at plantationbay.com.

How to get there

I am not exactly sure how else you can get to Plantation without hailing a cab or driving a private car because the resort is secluded. Plantation Bay is located in Marigondon Beach, Road, Lapu-Lapu City. If I were to go there via commute to lessen the expenses, I would go to Parkmall, hail a jeepney to Lapu-Lapu and then take a cab from there. Someone recommended hailing a jeepney from Parkmall, Soong, Maribago, to Maribago then take a tricycle to Plantation Bay. Just take a cab, please.

Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa

Kiddie slides near the pool.

Another default destination when it comes to superior quality resorts is Shangri-La. You can’t get your expectations high on the beach part of the resort because, for me, it’s a basic Mactan beach. But if you include the marine adventures, it’s one great playground under the sea.

But we won’t be tackling that because the resort is also known for its 5-star reputation and the fun water park– for kids. Taking a vacation away from home means taking your children along with you  (if you have kids, of course), so this also means that whatever makes them happy makes you happy, right? In Shagri-La, not only will you experience expensive accommodation and service, but you will also get to enjoy seeing your kids play in the colorful water playground in the kiddie pool area.

Rates

The day use fee is expensive. Their Main Wing Deluxe Room is 14,000 pesos for an overnight stay. I heard that the day use is at 3,600 pesos but I have yet to verify.

How to get there

From St. James Amusement Park (a little walk from Parkmall), take a 23 jeepney to Mactan Shrine (Punta Engano) then a little walk again to Shangri-La’s entrance.
