hidden gem of cebu - Blue water resort maribago
It’s been a goal of mine to visit Cebu before 2017 ends, and this November it finally happened #Thankful. Cebu is absolutely amazing with its own beautiful destinations to visit and resorts that represent Cebuano authenticity. Bluewater Resort is one of the most visited resorts in Mactan Island and I just had to see it for myself.
Bluewater has 2 resorts in South Cebu and 1 resort in Bohol. They have branches planted in Maribago, Sumilon and Panglao. I was fortunate enough to stay at their Maribago location for 2 days and 1 night and can I just say, 1 night was not enough, since there are too many things to experience at this resort. But because my stay in Cebu was not too long it’s safe to say I was able to maximize my every minute in Bluewater Resort. So here I want to share with ya’ll some of the best features of Bluewater Resort
You'll get to experience the authentic filipino / cebuano lifestyle from head-to-toe
Cebuanos truly have the most exceptional warm welcome greeting you could ever encounter. No wonder Filipinos are known around the world for hospitality. Upon arriving in their lobby you’ll already receive the warmest greeting from their all-filipino staff and refreshing welcome drinks while you check in. The receptionist gave our key and a map of the resort (Yes, there’s a map! It’s that huge) since this resort is a 7- hectare tropical paradise. Paradise found, guys. We were escorted by golf cart to the new Premier Deluxe room located in the beach wing. Not gonna lie, I felt extra being driven in a golf cart with welcome drinks in our hands. I mean, not every resort makes you feel this welcome and I think any guest would love that extra feeling once in awhile.
As a whole Blue Water Resort truly made each aspect of the resort a source of Filipino pride. From the architecture, the interior, the food, the beach, the spa and basically the whole vibe, it makes you love the Filipino culture and tradition even more. Their friendliness, hospitality and attentiveness to your every need will truly make you wanna go back, and did I mention the lavish buffet themes will make you gain a little vacation weight if you don’t control yourself. Trust me it’s hard when the buffet is right there and all the food so good!
the rooms are luxurious with a modern filipino architecture
I can honestly say that the room took my breathe away with its Filipino charm. The vibe screams: “you’re on vacation and it’s time to unwind!”. Whether you want to stay inside and lounge around, prepare a bubble bath to soak in, or feel like going outside to get some sun on the veranda or at the resort’s private beach, Bluewater Resort goes the extra mile and gives you everything you could ask for!

pinoy themed buffet in allegro restaurant
One of my favorite parts of the Blue Water Resort is the Allegro, especially at night. With their wide choices of food, live music and best rates for wine.The food was so amazing that you might slip into a little food coma after, but kidding aside, the buffet featured a great variety of flavors, and everything was delicious! Blue Water Resort definitely knows how to make your stomach happy by satisfying all your cravings.
