Bucket List No. 89 : Cebu Marine Resort- Lowaii… revisited

2013-08-09 13.52.03

Why is Cebu Marine Lowaii Resort included in my Bucket List when it is supposed to solely dedicate to different countries I want to go to in this lifetime? Well, first since Cebu Marine is within my hometown, Lapulapu City and there’s no excuse again for me NOT to visit it. Second, I have been here many times in the past and it’s one of the places that I’ve liked best so I made sure I’d have to see it before departing for my RTW trip, starting from Asia of course then South America, and who knows where would my own two feet will take me.

The same charming Cebu Marine Beach Resort in Suba-Basbas, Lapulapu City, Cebu, Philippines. I came here on a weekend, just to savor some fresh air, a quick break, in a stunning clean beach with such a reinvigorating atmosphere, enough to zest a spirit!

A tiny hotel but roomy enough to wander around and entertain yourself with some tidbits of amenities.

Of course how can a foodie miss the food.

The great thing about Cebu Marine Resort is its superb restaurant offering wide Japanese menu (Lowaii is Japanese) but at the same time, scrumptious Filipino cuisine and western breakfasts are served. Their wide menu offers good stuff, you’re drooling before you’d be calling the orders.

Cozy lounges are there and this is actually my fave spot. It faces the calm waters and perfect with your book and sunnies and just have a quiet time.

The tiny space around the premises is well-kept and obviously planned nicely that the whole space was utilized with enough privacy and gives out a relaxing ambiance straight away when you have a nice quick walk especially barefoot at the sands.2013-08-09 12.45.13

The lovely pool with the word, “Lowaii” at the bottom:

This was a marvelous chance to relax on a lazy weekend. Cebu Marine is good for a stay for a couple of nights and not that expensive. Receptionists can do better. They aren’t that friendly as those ones in upmarket resorts but didn’t bother me. I’m actually just wondering why filipino receptionists aren’t that friendly and genuinely welcoming TO FILIPINO GUESTS? I am a Filipina obviously and came alone, and I wasn’t given that genuine smiles they give to foreign guests. I don’t know, is this the ‘crab-mentality’ thing? Just confusing for filipinos like us who have been abroad for quite awhile. Such a shame because I love the resort. Again, no big deal, you would enjoy your stay for sure!

I commend the lovely restaurant staff and the wait staff, helpful and so attentive, so quick with my questions. They were the ones who told me that the Bohol Island can actually be seen from here and so happy to serve especially that I’ve been nitpicky with my no-sugar drink and my order although I only have a single meal, lol.

Will absolutely recommend Cebu Marine Resort! ❤

Will have more travels and update you.

Bye for now
