Starwood will develop Sheraton Mactan Resort, near Cebu until 2019. The future property will comprise a hotel and branded residences on the exotic coral island of Mactan in the Visayas group of islands. While the hotel is due to open by 2019, the residences will be available in 2020.
“We are delighted to partner with Starwood to introduce Sheraton Mactan Resort to the booming island of Mactan in the Philippines. Starwood continues to build on its long-standing owner and developer relationships in the region as we expand our strong and growing footprint,” said Charlie Dang, Regional Vice President, Southeast Asia, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Asia Pacific. “Given the flourishing Filipino economy, we are confident that Sheraton Mactan Resort will resonate with travellers and potential homeowners alike with its idyllic location and best-in-class offerings.”
The beachfront hotel property will offer 250 guest rooms, of which 20 will be suites, with breathtaking views of Magellan Bay. Other facilities will include Shine Spa for Sheraton, three dining venues, an enhanced lobby lounge, and recreation facilities such as a swimming pool and the state-of-the-art Sheraton Fitness facilities. Sheraton Mactan Resort will also feature function space totalling 1,313 m2—ideal for meetings, weddings and functions.
Part of the Cebu province and located in Punta Engano Barangay, the property is an easy 10 minute drive from the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, Philippines’ second busiest airport. For the more adventurous guest, Mactan boasts world renowned snorkelling and scuba diving. It is also ideally situated for sailing and island hopping.
