Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort: A Fantastic Summer Vacation

Spend a summer getaway at one of the premier resorts on Mactan Island.

Mactan Island is renowned for its breathtaking resorts. With some of the best white sand beaches in Cebu, you will surely get your money’s worth when you book a stay at these high-end accommodations.

Among the most popular resorts in Mactan is the Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort. It is an in-demand summer getaway spot for locals and tourists alike because of its breathtaking views and top-notch services. In fact, people have been booking the place since its inception in July 1989.

It is highly rated among online booking sites—Agoda gave it an excellent overall rating of 8.1, giving much praise to the resort’s housekeeping, beachfront, and breakfast options. Guests have also given it an average rating of 8.0 on Booking.com, noting the safe booking process, cost-value prices, and hospitable staff.

It even won the ASEAN Green Hotel Award—an award that recognizes hotels with initiatives to protect and care for the environment—in 2016 and 2018.

Guests look forward to experiencing island life at Bluewater Maribago.

Its neat, spacious 110-meter white sand beach is man-made, making it stand out among the many other beach resorts in Mactan. And it is not just for swimming. You can also go jet-skiing or banana–boating, or take part in other available recreational activities.

However, if you are not keen on breaking a sweat during your vacation, you can always lay back and relax on the fine white sand. Or you can retreat to nearby beach huts and get some shade from the sun as you chat and hang out with family and friends.

Take a stroll at the resort’s white sand beach.

You can also go to the beachside bar, where you can buy alcoholic drinks and other beverages.

You can indulge yourself with some delicious cocktails at the beachside bar.

If you aren’t fond of beaches, you can enjoy the lagoon-shaped swimming pools just outside the poolside rooms.

Aside from the white sand beach, the resort also has several swimming pools.

Although the exterior design of the rooms looks like a payag (nipa hut), the interiors are fancy, generating a soothing atmosphere on top of a luxurious feel. Furthermore, they are sufficiently equipped with amenities for overnight stays.

Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort offers four different room designs—deluxe, amuma spa suite, premier deluxe, and the royal bungalow—that vary only in area sizes and bed types. Also, they all have free Wi-Fi, cable TV, and complimentary breakfast.

Rooms at the Bluewater Maribago

  • 2 double beds
  • Private veranda

Royal Bungalow

The only difference between the deluxe and premier deluxe rooms is their size and bathroom amenities. The former has a bathroom with a built-in bathtub, which also serves as the showering area. In contrast, the latter is much bigger, has a separate showering area, and has a freestanding bathtub instead of a built-in one.

Remodelista, an interior design and lifestyle website, mentions that some freestanding bathtubs are more luxurious and have more volume for a more comfortable, relaxing bath.

Its rooms have verandas decorated with locally made furniture.

The amuma spa suite is located in the Amuma Spa wing. Moreover, you can avail of massage services there to unwind after a busy day.

The royal bungalow is the top-end room available at the resort. It is the biggest and is located on a small island a few meters from the shore.

On a different note, you can dine in Allegro, a fusion restaurant specializing in Filipino dishes. Its specialties include sinigang na isda (tamarind stew) topped with ube and pinakupsan na baboy (shrunken pork belly) served with a sunny-side-up egg.

The restaurant, Allegro, offers a unique twist to many Filipino dishes.

Lastly, you might want to refrain from bringing home borrowed resort items like bath towels and glass cups as a remembrance of Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort. Instead, try visiting the gift shop to buy souvenirs for you and your loved ones.

Bring home some fancy souvenirs after visiting this Mactan Island resort.

If you want to experience island life this summer, booking a stay at Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort is a step in the right direction. Its relaxing ambiance, spacious areas, and meritable services will make you want to return for more.
