The Philippines: CEBU's Movenpick Resort & Spa Cebu (formerly Hilton Cebu)

Movenpick Resort & Spa Cebu is "a tropical captivating escape in Cebu."

We visited this resort when this was still distinctly pink Hilton Cebu.  Acquired by Movenpick Hotels & Resorts in 2011, the resort has changed management and will soon change colors but most of the facilities remain the same.

Let's take a look...

Known distinctively for its pink color, the resort is pink from floor to ceiling, with staff wearing pink uniforms, pink jeepney as service vehicles, pink, pink, pink everywhere...

This is the resort's rotunda, in between the two buildings where the rooms are. 
Manny O's Wine and Tapas illuminates the marina at night.  Located at the tip, it provides privacy and exclusivity to its guests.  There are four other restaurants in the resort:  Seas Restaurant (serves seafoods!), Vanilla Beach Cafe, Pink Lobby Lounge & Bar and the Sapphire Pool Bar.
This is the resort accommodation's living room.  The room we occupied, had a living room with an LCD TV, kitchen with refrigerator and oven, bedroom with a comfy king-size bed and another TV, bathroom with tub.

Making a Santa Claus face out of soap suds...hmmmm...more like reindeer face.  What does it look to you?

The resort has pools, fitness center, and a spa.  They offer water sports, like banana boat, jetski, tube rides, parasailing, etc.  Guests can even snorkel within the marina without going so far out to the sea.  Fishes abound within the marine sanctuary, especially as children and adults feed the fish.  Diving within the house reef is also available while the more adventurous divers can arrange for a diving escapade away from the resort.

The resort gardens are a beautiful spot for photo ops, even if just among friends.  Our photographer friends say, it's not the view but the moment captured in the photos that matter.  You won't see these beautiful girl-friends in Movenpick, though...*wink*
