AIME update: The Philippine’s best resort for business events


Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu was recently honored by CEI ASIA magazine as one of three Best Resort Hotels for Business Events in its annual Industry Excellence in Business Events survey. The resort is the only Philippine property to make it to the prestigious list.

The Industry Excellence survey aims to gather insights on what event organizers and buyers across Asia Pacific regard as top choices in destinations, hotels, bureaus and many more for business events.  Industry peers vote on different categories and, for the past 15 years, the survey has been considered a benchmark to showcase and celebrate the best in business events.

“We are delighted to be named one of Asia’s top resorts by the readers of CEI.  This recognition comes at a most opportune time, as we are in the middle of preparations for the 2015 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in the Philippines – an event that will put the country in the world spotlight.  Cebu will be hosting sectoral meetings and this gives us another opportunity to showcase the resort’s MICE capability.  The resort has hosted large-scale, high-profile events in the past, and our team takes care of an average of a thousand guests a day – that gives us an operational advantage in handling events of this scale.  And this recognition is another boost to our confidence,” said Albert La Fuente, the resort’s DOSM.

The resort’s dedicated events team is committed to delivering the promise of excellence offered by the group’s Signature Events initiative. Signature Events is a comprehensive set of initiatives designed to position Shangri‑La Hotels and Resorts firmly at the forefront of delivering streamlined, successful events. It boasts a comprehensive portfolio of services includes Super Value Dates to enable a quick search for the best available room rate across Shangri-La and affiliated properties; Group Online Reservations and dedicated event specialists providing seamless service throughout the hotel.

Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu also launched last year “Sunglasses at Work (SAW),” the resort’s bespoke destination meetings and bleisure (business with leisure) solutions.  SAW offers a multitude of pleasurable activities and suitable venues to transform usual boardroom sessions or networking activities into dynamic, fun and memorable affairs.  The marriage of inspiring surrounds, modern meeting conveniences and the legendary Shangri-La hospitality guarantee a meeting or event that is both stimulating and rewarding.
