We were in Cebu last December to celebrate my birthday. While we were planning for the trip, I specifically told Beij that I wanted to go to Plantation Bay. An overnight stay in Plantation Bay cost around $160 to a whooping $850. But I found out that they offer a day tour package for only Php 2000/person. We took the day tour instead since Beij also wanted to go to Shangri-La Mactan. The package included a free day use of the resorts swimming area, gym and game room, free use of one towel per person and a set lunch at the Kilimanjaro Kafe.

We arrived Cebu at around 9:30 AM and from the airport, we took a cab going to Plantation Bay. When we arrived at the resort, we proceeded to the Guest Services Counter for registration. We then left our luggage at the Bell Service Podium so we could get dressed and explore what the resort has to offer.

A little before lunch, we proceeded to Kilimanjaro Cafe to claim our free set lunch. We didn't expect that the servings will be that big. I had Chicken and Beef Satay, Crispy Liempo and a scoop of ice cream for lunch. Beij had Chicken and Beef Satay, Boneless Bangus and ice cream. We decided to explore the resort more after lunch since we were so full.

We tried to swim in almost all the pool inside the resort. Be it a freshwater pool or a saltwater pool. Too bad we had to leave the resort early since the day tour package is good until 5PM only.

We will be back in Plantation Bay to try those Water Edge rooms. That's for sure. And I'll be ending this post with more pictures to show why I consider this one of the resorts I dreamed to go to. :)
