Cebu Landmasters unveils the new Abaca Resort Mactan, opening in 2024

Leading developer in VisMin Cebu Landmasters Inc. (CLI) strengthens its hotel portfolio in the region as
it reveals its very first resort development – the P2.5 billion Abaca Resort Mactan. The expanded luxury
boutique hotel is set to be completed in 2024.

The 125-room all-suite accommodation featuring exclusively panoramic ocean views is envisioned to fill
the gap for luxury resorts catering to global travelers in Cebu’s thriving tourism scene in preparation for
international mobility. It will rise 17-stories high on a 4,500 sqm. property formerly occupied by the
multi-awarded Abaca Boutique Resort in Punta Engano, Lapu-Lapu City, a tourism growth center.

CLI purchased the property in 2019 and has signed up The Abaca Group to continue operating the hotel
and providing luxury experiences tailored for local and global tourists. To design the resort and infuse it
with a unique sense of place sought by an emerging breed of high-end travelers, CLI tapped
internationally renowned architectural firm Büro Ole Scheeren whose projects won numerous awards
globally. Some of their notable work are CTBUH Urban Habitat Award 2020 Winner DUO in Singapore,
the World Building of the Year 2015 The Interlace in Singapore, and MahaNakhon Tower in Bangkok, a
mixed-use high-rise development that upends the conventional typology of the skyscraper. The resort’s
design is also locally supported by the Philippines’ leading architectural firm AIDEA.
Abaca Resort Mactan is CLI’s first resort development and will feature a timeless Sky Villas concept to
serve as the platform for memorable getaways. Each room will offer the luxury of space and will range
from 40-50 sqm for the Oceanfront Suites, and up to 105 sqm for the Sky Villas which will have its own
one-of-a-kind floating infinity pools that will be offered in both 1 and 2 bedrooms.
Aside from its awe-inspiring architecture, the resort will feature a luxurious infinity pool, an elevated
cascading plunge pool, 360-degree roof deck bar, a private beach and panoramic ocean views. These will
be enhanced by a gym and spa, kids center and function rooms for events.

Abaca Resort Mactan will also be distinguished by culinary offerings that have won for The Abaca Group
a loyal following in highly cosmopolitan Cebu. The resort will have three outlets, offering new food and
beverage concepts for the resort – a live-fire Asian concept on the main level, a new normal, all-day
dining format and fantastic banquet facilities that can seat over 200 persons. Abaca restaurant will
return and have a new home on the impressive rooftop with panoramic views of both the city and the

“We have always wanted to contribute towards making Cebu a thriving economic and tourism
destination,” according to CLI chairman and CEO Jose Soberano III. “Abaca Resort Mactan will put Cebu
on the radar of this emerging breed of global travelers seeking world-class, authentic and unique holiday
