Shangri-La Mactan

Shangri-La's Mactan Island Resort & Spa, Philippines' largest and most exclusive deluxe resort gives its guests the definitive tropical paradise experience. Located in Cebu, this idyllic resort with its beautiful private beach offers an exciting range of outdoor recreation activities and a perfect place for a tranquil holiday escape. The superb tropical garden setting is designed to provide opportunities for enjoying panoramic views of the Visayan Sea and outlying islands, making it a perfect place for relaxation and contemplation. A major aspect of the design was the reconfiguration of the shoreline to create an attractive and sheltered man-made beach area with rocky outcrops and a small naturalistic island within wading distance. The picturesque sandy beach is reached from the hotel along serpentine paths winding through large areas of tropical gardens with neat lawns, clusters of palm trees and lush planting. The tropical gardens incorporate two large pools in different locations, one close to the coast with a disappearing edge and palm framed sea views. Both pools have paved areas for sun lounges and are surrounded by bold feature planting and shade trees. Other elements of the design include paved courtyards, seating areas, planters, fountains, night lighting, irrigation and drainage. Belt Collins was responsible for the complete landscape services for the resort, to include concept planning, full design and documentation, and field supervision during building and implementation to ensure the highest quality outcome.
