Resort-Hopping in Mactan Island. First Stop: Crimson Resort & Spa

FOR our annual family vacation this year we took advantage of my xxGF’s PAL Mabuhay Miles and booked the whole family a trip to Cebu.

Crimson Resort & SpaWe were to stay in Cebu for approximately two nights and 1.5 days only.  Nevertheless, we managed to sufficiently explore and enjoy two very nice resort-hotels in Mactan Island in that very limited time, thanks to the practice my xxGF and myself had during our Holy Land Pilgrimage in November last year where we toured four countries in 15 days (and stayed in nine different hotels in that short time span!).

Our first stop:  Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan.

Here’s a slideshow of the tons of photos we took while in Crimson Resort and Spa.  To view individual photos, check out my Picasa Web Photo Album.


WE learned about Crimson through Timberland Sports & Nature Club.  Apparently, Timberland and Crimson were developed and are managed by the same entity:  Filinvest.

Crimson is not even a year old.  We learned that it opened only in May 2010.

It is a very nice and clean resort-hotel.  All the hotel-rooms are villas scattered over a sprawling beach-front real estate.

      @Jheng: Sorry for late reply. I didn’t notice your comment earlier. Crimson’s rates are not cheap but comparable with the good resort-hotels in Cebu (e.g. Shangri-La, Plantation Bay, etc.).
