CRIMSON HOTEL & RESORTS > The Crimson Pulse Blog

The Crimson Pulse Blog


Let me sing a familiar tune: at the Crimson Resort in Mactan, there is a beautiful cliffside that affords its patrons uninterrupted domain over several hundred yards of seawater. It’s not what one would call majestic, but it ought to be wholly refreshing in place of urban skyline and smog. It’s a postcard backdrop for the novel you’re reading. It’s what you’d like to see when you open your eyes after an unplanned siesta.

Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan: Of Sands, Sea and Sud

For years, Crimson Resort and Spa in Mactan has always been one of the top destination hotels in Cebu – a multi-awarded resort that guests and staff alike are proud of. Nestled in a six-hectare beach resort, it has 40 luxurious private villas with individual plunge pools and 250 guest rooms perfect for those who are tired of the usual high-rise hotel set-up.  This year marks their 5th anniversary and celebration of the many recognitions that the hotel has earned over the years. This year alone, Crimson has been recognized by World Luxury Hotel Awards as the country winner for the Luxury Beach Resort category and Continent Winner for Luxury Thallaso and Spa. It has been a mainstay recommended property in Conde Nast Johansen since 2013, and a finalist of the recent Reader’s Choice Award. 

Crimson Resort and Spa, Azure Beach Club celebrate milestones

It has been quite a while since I’ve been to Crimson Resort and Spa. Back in 2011, I visited the resort to write and photograph it for Bluprint magazine. It was memorable and interesting as it was also my first resort assignment and I had a great time there. The article was published in the same year. I was there again in 2012. When an invite to go back to Crimson Resort and Spa to celebrate it’s fifth year and its Azure Beach Club’s first anniversary, I just had to say yes.
