Imagine being situated right in the heart of a city—where the bustle, cultural hubs, and commercial hotspots are within reach.

There's no better place to make your home in Cebu City than the only 5-star hotel in the area: Radisson Blu Cebu. While there’s so much to do in the Queen City of the South, you might not know that the adventure begins well within the comforts of this hotel.

An upscale brand of international hotels and resorts, Radisson Blu is no stranger to prestigious accolades. Past guests continue to rave about the warm Cebu hospitality and pristine facilities. And it comes as no surprise that its Cebu counterpart ranks No. 1 out of 101 on TripAdvisor’s Cebu City stays!

First impressions last. And Radisson Blu Cebu is a prime example of making a truly unforgettable one. The moment that you step in the lobby’s swanky entrance, you’re greeted by gorgeous high ceilings that automatically spell lavish spaciousness. You can tell that each tone and palette is carefully thought of, creating a public space that's stylishly modern yet inviting.

The Superior Room is where utmost comfort is only the bare minimum. Whether you’re in for a mid-day nap or calling it a night after a long day, sinking into your memory foam bed with goose feather pillows and down-filled duvets is only one of the great touches of luxury you’ll have at this hotel.

No one will blame you for wanting to stay in. You’ll be well entertained and taken care of thanks to your LCD TV with cable channels, iPod docking entertainment system, and even your very own Nespresso coffee machine!

While never leaving the room seems tempting, exploring what the hotel has to offer is equally just as enticing. Whatever the weather, and especially on a hot summer’s day, there’s no better way to cool off than with a swim at the free-form outdoor pool.

The expansive 800-sqm. pool is lined with trees that sway along with the breeze, an overlaying bridge, and mini pools within. Vacationers of all ages are regularly seen making a splash in the sparkling blue waters.

Fun fact: Did you know that Radisson Blu's pool is the largest in Cebu City?

A refreshing dip is often best enjoyed with an ice-cold drink in hand. Conveniently located near the pool and by the al fresco garden area, The Pool Bar serves you your favorite drinks and concoctions, best paired with their selection of international dishes and snacks. There are a couple of hammocks out there, ready for you to take your outdoor relaxation up a notch.

If you’re looking for a more relaxed place to catch up with some friends, The Lobby Bar is the place for you! Alcoholic favorites are on full display, but their menu also consists of impressive dishes such as Prime Rib Eye Steak and their very own The Radisson Club Sandwich. Plus, the sweeping views of the hotel’s lavish grounds make for an ideal backdrop. When you’re in for a relaxing nightcap, let yourself sway along to the music of the lobby’s nighttime entertainment.

Tea drinkers will delight in Dilmah T-Bar, the first and only one of its kind in the country. Offering an impressive range of green, black, flavored, and rare teas from all over the world, they also whip up innovative tea-based mocktails, cocktails, shakes, and other treats. During afternoons, take part in a traditional high tea ceremony. Or, pair your chosen teas with a pastry or two. It's the perfect way to catch up with a friend or even to enjoy some alone time!

The only acceptable form of work while on vacation is a workout. If you’re one to enjoy staying in shape, Radisson Blu Cebu’s spacious in-house gym will surely give you that rush of endorphins. Equipped with complete and top-notch facilities, it’s a fitness haven that will excite any avid fitness junkie. Who knows, they might attract non-gym-goers as well!

A part of any good vacation is indulging in sumptuous eats. Luckily, TripAdvisor’s No. 1 Cebu City restaurant, Feria is located right within the hotel! Embark on a gustatory experience like no other as you travel through a buffet of cuisines from all over the world. Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Italian, Indian—you name it, Feria has it. Some stations are interactive so that you can witness expert chefs whip up dishes in masterful fashion.

Coming from personal experience, it's easy to get overwhelmed with the abundant selection of dishes, but that just means that you'll never run out of things to sample!

Feria unfailingly ensures that not only will you feast on a sumptuous buffet, but that you'll come back again and again. Feria's themed dinner buffets are on rotation daily, so there's always something new to delight in.

The Urban Table is another equally delectable option. Enjoy casual, al fresco dining at its finest and sink your teeth into prime cuts of Wagyu and Kobe beef. Immerse yourself in Cebuano culture as you indulge in local specialties made with ingredients sourced from nearby towns.

When the time calls for a relaxing rubdown, head over to Spa Esc, TripAdvisor’s No. 1 Spa and & Wellness spot in Cebu City. Allow yourself to be pampered in the hotel’s in-house oasis of tranquility as your tensions and stressors are kneaded away.

IMAGE: John Merin

Living up to the claim that it is the place to be, the hotel is the perfect mix of business and leisure, and relaxation and adventure. While staying in already makes your vacation worthwhile, heading out is as appealing since everything is nearby.

When in Cebu, choosing to stay at Radisson Blu Cebu is a convenient choice. You're only a half hour’s drive away from the airport!

Retail therapy won’t even be a problem with SM City Cebu right next door. Should you need to run errands, do groceries, or catch a movie, it's a few steps away! Well within reach are historical hotspots, cultural destinations, commercial areas, and local dining spots—making it the perfect starting point for sightseeing in the city.
