Amidst the several luxury hotels, resorts and spa’s in Mactan Island Cebu lies Crimson Resort and Spa. A hidden luxury resort at the heart of Mactan Island Cebu. The resort is relatively new and to be honest, I have not heard of it until now. I have been to Cebu several times, I have tried hotels in the City and Resorts in Mactan Island. I can tell you, Crimson Resort is really a one of a kind.

I can think of several reasons why Crimson Resort unique from most of its neighboring resorts.

A Sprawling Property

Crimson Resort and Spa does not have a high rise hotel building building. You would not want to go to an island vacation just to stay on a High Rise Building right? All of their rooms are situated inside their luxurious 6-hectare sprawling compound. Their deluxe (Standard) rooms are situated on 2-story buildings and their Individual Private Villas, are perfectly located to get the best possible views. Each Villa has its own Gate, Garden, Private Pool, Spacious and Luxurious Facilities and Amazing Views.

Although you can walk around the resort, Because of its size, most of the time you’ll need to ride one of their electric golf carts to get around the resort. Unfortunately, guests cannot drive the cart! :p

The design of the hotel reminds me a lot of Boracay Shangri-La. The reception, the sprawling property and the villas. Maybe they have the same designer or inspiration.

An Intimate Location

Crimson Resort and Spa is a Destination in itself. It is perfect for a family getaway, a vacation with friends but most importantly, it is perfect for those who want a Quiet, Relaxing, Serene and Intimate Place - perhaps for a Honeymoon, Anniversary or just to be detached from the outside world.

The Beach is ok for lounging and sun bathing but it is not very ideal for Swimming because there are rocks on some parts and it can get deep on short distances. Mactan Island is not well known for its white powdery sand beaches – it is know for Imported White Sand Beaches from nearby Provinces. Crimson keeps it clean, once the lumot are there, they immediately take it out!

Great Food

Whether it is room service or Dining in one of their restaurants, Crimson Resort and Spa offers wide array of Food Choices. You have to try their Angus Beef Burger (Medium Well) it was super delicious and Juicy! And of course, the buffets, Crimson offers Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Buffets, which I will review separately.

Superb Service and Hospitality

Filipinos are know for being the most hospitable people on the planet. You can get the best of that in Crimson or from the whole of Cebu for that matter. They are just the friendliest people and it is very genuine. Everywhere you go, you will be greeted with “Good Morning, Afternoon, Evening”. Great Service with a smile

You won’t have to lift a finger. Everything about your stay is being taken care of. From your arrival at the Airport, to check-in, to your Room, During your stay, upon check out and until the X-ray counter of the airport when you leave! I was spoiled! It was an amazing experience that I can get used to!

Amazing Spa Services

They don’t call their resort Crimson Resort and Spa for Nothing! Their AUM, chant with me – AWWWMMMMM – offers superb massages! I mean super duper great massage! Aum Spa offers world class services to its guest for total relaxation. Although the price for the services is a bit steep, but I guarantee you, it is worth every peso you pay! I tried their Aum Signature Deep Tissue Massage and it was pain in all the right places which results in extreme relaxation afterwards! If you want  lighter touch you can go with their other massages :) Just ask their friendly attendant in the spa.
