The above is just some of what is available, the apartment is located on the 16th floor of the Keppel centre, floors 1 to 14 are for business and floors 15 and 16 are residential, within the same building there are 100s of companies ranging from financial, technology to health care related. It is possible that what you may want might already be on your doorstep, Go and explore:)
We have a live in helper, the apartment is actually a 2 bed with 2 bathrooms, but the helper has her own bedroom and bathroom on the other end, away from your personal living space. Katy is very quite but keeps the place clean and tidy, Your bed will get made each morning and on request you can ask her to cook you breakfast and dinner if you so wish to eat in, all the cooking and cleaning can be taken care of, ideal if you plan on staying busy. Our helper can organize your laundry to be washed and delivered back; Katy will also iron any shirts you have once received from the laundry. So that your stay is completely hassle free. We recommend that you tip the helper at the end of your stay.
Restaurants, bars and Clubs
You are never too far away from entertainment, with up to 6 Malls and one on your doorstep and Mango Avenue the clubbing Mecca of Cebu, there is plenty to choose from. Karaoke is big here in the Philippines and there are many karaoke bars about that also serve food, there are also many nightclubs without karaoke but just be careful finding a bar to drink in, you may end up in a Bikini Bar. Otherwise the Malls often host entertainment and there are literally 100s of Restaurants to choose from between all the Malls centrally located, go ahead and enjoy.
There are loads, we have a personal Yoga instructor for just p600 per hour, he will come to you, don’t worry, we have Yoga mats, if you want his phone number just ask. Otherwise we find the Marriot Hotel the best place to go. Rates as low as p80 per person can include a whole day, you are free to use the gym, Sauna and swimming pool outside, Free towels and showers are provided, Or you can simply just relax by the pool, The Marriott charge $80 USD per night, yet you can use all their facilities for just £1 for the whole day and feel like a king or queen. And just walk over the road back to our apartment where you already have room service included all for FREE. We often have a swim after a workout at the gym and order lunch at the poolside bar, the music is tranquil and the atmosphere is great.
For those people even more energetic why not try rock climbing at the Metro Sports Centre, again its a pay as you go climbing wall, Good trainers are recommended, all other equipment is supplied. The people there are so friendly and really encourage you to climb higher, often the people that regularly go rock climbing go on a weekend getaway and climb the outdoors deep in the jungle, we have been twice and if camping out is your thing then this is great fun, the trip is organize by a group of friends who are experienced climbers, We recommend you bring Deet for mosquitoes. However the indoor climbing wall is just as fun and you should try it at least once.
One thing you should take advantage of while staying here is the low cost of treatments on offer. Many of the doctors, surgeons and dentists have been trained to high standards and many have undergone training in the USA. You should consider that dental treatment you always wanted whilst here, because the financial savings are usually more than a 3rd off than in any other western country. Do some research before you leave, but some of the best places in town are right here.
Island Hopping and excursions
We recommend that you check out the other hotels located here, all hotels offer excursions, island hopping, snorkelling, diving, Jet skiing or sightseeing tours. You’re never too far away to experience all these things and many island tours can be done in a day trip. Speak to any hotel and they will be glad to assist you. Talking about other hotels, they always welcome guests even if you are not staying there; the Waterfront has a themed Las Vegas casino and Restaurant, so why not treat yourself one night and put on your best evening cloths and enjoy.
With our apartment all this and more is at your fingertips and best of all its FREE
We don’t require much; basically we will consider any swap suggestions from a Studio to a castle. We would like to visit City’s so the countryside probably wouldn’t be an option unless there are things to do. Our main objective is to explore and do things, so we will probably be out and about most of the time. Some example places we would like to visit are... New York, London, Tokyo, Swiss alps, Australia, India, Italy, Spain. Let us know your suggestions; we are happy to get new ideas.
