Radisson Blu Hotel in Cebu – A New Luxury Hotel in the Heart of Cebu

Last November 10, 2010,  a new addition to the family of hotels and resorts in beautiful and tropical Cebu was officially launched and it was inagurated by President Benigno S. Aquino III.  The opening brings more prestige to the city of and the info tech area of the city by bringing a world class, well respected brand to the area to accommodate business travelers in more than 400 luxurious rooms.

Quoting the President : I always enjoy visiting Cebu – it’s a place that brings together essential elements that make Philippine tourism so special. Aside from being home to some of our country’s greatest natural attractions, Cebu is a haven where guests can opt for either outdoor adventure (like Secretary Almendras), or just to take some time off to kick back, relax and enjoy world-class accommodations and services (especially for Secretary Purisima, our very hardworking Secretary of Finance). With the Department of Tourism’s intensive campaign to boost our tourism, the demands for accommodations are expected to dramatically increase. Indeed, there is no better time to open up this new facility than now.  – President Benigno S. Aquino III

The Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu is the first in a number of Radisson Blue hotels that will be opened in the Asia Pacific Region by the conglomerate of SM Hotels and Conventions and Carlson. Following the recent launch of its Cebu hotel, a new hotel near Mall of Asia will soon be constructed.

The contemporary feel and vibrant nature of the hotel is among a growing number of global brands which are starting to call Cebu home. It turns out that the combination of an incredible tropical climate with a business savvy technology industry is the right combination to bring business to Cebu in droves.


The milestone hotel development offers such amenities as free wi-fi for guests, a unique full day operated restaurant, and more than a few ways to enjoy your time without leaving the property. By focusing on business travelers, the hotel hopes to provide those things that other hotels tend to forget, like complimentary access to the health facilities and great service that is catered towards those on the go.


Of course, the Radisson Blu Cebu will appeal to leisure travelers as well since it has all the regular luxuries of the world class hotel and brand without compromising on the quality it gives to those who are on business or assignments.

The hotel is a model of innovation from the functional, stylish, and interesting interiors to such innovations as in-room iPod docking stations and 37 inch flat screen televisions.

With complimentary breakfast and evening cocktails in adition to news service and Nespresso machines in select rooms, this is a hotel that goes beyond the usual turn down service or wake up calls. In fact, if you want your garments pressed when you arrive – it’s complimentary. Where else can you get that?

With world class meeting and event planning staff and facilities and all the amenities of a full service resort hotel, you would think that the innovations had stopped, but you will have to think again. Radisson Blu Cebu Hotel offers something else. A unique restaurant buffet with interactive stations where you can talk with the chefs to get your food made exactly how you want it.

In addition, you can talk with the experts about what pairs well with your food or wine so that your palate will be as spoiled as your body. Private glass enclosed rooms are the perfect spots for relaxation and the floor to ceiling windows offer full views of this amazing property.

The only way to truly experience it, is to come and try it out. I recommend you do so. You can also checkout more Cebu Hotels here:)
