Set along a stretch of private beach on Cebu’s Mactan Island, The Residences at The Sheraton Cebu Mactan Resort promises an unparalleled world of luxury and comfort amidst a serene seascape. After its groundbreaking in November 2015, the resort is targeted for completion in 2019. Its premiere residential development, The Residences at Sheraton Cebu Mactan Resort, is scheduled to be completed the following year.
Rated among Condé Nast Traveler’s 20 top islands in the world, Cebu provides a quick getaway from the hustle and bustle of city living. It’s a quick drive from Cebu City, literally minutes away from the Mactan Cebu International Airport, and just an hour by plane from Manila. Being a coral island, Mactan offers some of the best diving, snorkeling and water sport spots in the Philippines. Neighbouring islands offer pristine white sand beaches and prime underwater spots such as the Kontiki Reef, Tambuli Reef and the Hilutungan Island Marine Sanctuary. Nearby Olango Island is a nature-lover’s paradise with up to 60,000 migratory birds from as far as Siberia and Northern China making a pit stop during their annual global migration. Apart from fine beaches and exotic islands, world-class golf courses as well as historical and cultural sites showcasing Cebu’s Spanish colonial past abound in the area.
The Sheraton Cebu Mactan Resort and The Residences is a partnership between Apple One Mactan Inc., a subsidiary of leading boutique property developer AppleOne Properties Inc., the Best Boutique Developer in the 4th annual Philippines Property Awards; and Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc., which owns Sheraton and over 435 hotels and 88 resorts in more than 70 countries worldwide. Designed by the world-renowned Blink Design Group, the resort development draws inspiration from the surrounding cliffs, beaches and exposed rocks for its architectural concept.
“In 2020, Cebu will be a major airport hub in Asia Pacific with the expansion of the Mactan Cebu International Airport. Our vision is to be a significant part of the region’s tourism growth.
