Indulge in five-star Filipino bliss at Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan, a sprawling six-hectare haven that epitomises luxury living. Perched on the island of Mactan, on the sands of a private beach, this serene resort has everything you need for a relaxing escape from reality. It starts within an hour of landing at Mactan International Airport – the resort is just 20 minutes away.
Find your spot by the oceanfront, three-tiered infinity pool or head straight for the sand, where you can while away the day rotating between sunlounger and sea. Once you’ve worked up a thirst, saunter over to Azure Beach Club for a cocktail and bite to eat or pop by the all-day Saffron Café to taste your way through Filipino favourites. Experience euphoria at the award-winning Aum Spa, where you can unwind in the sauna, steam room and jacuzzi, before letting the expert therapists relieve aching muscles with a traditional massage (charges apply). If travelling with little ones, let their imaginations run wild in the Crimzone Club and pool, leaving you to soak up the sunshine, drink in hand. When the sun sets, leave the kids with the babysitter (charges apply) to enjoy a romantic, Spanish-inspired supper at Enye by Chele Gonzalez.
