From Cebu’s International Airport, we were greeted by the our driver and made our way through the busy roads of Mactan Island, and 10 minutes later, uncovered the small but perfectly formed Abaca Boutique Resort. One of the most exclusive boutique resorts in the Philippines, this property has 6 suites and 3 villas– all very well-appointed. This is the second time we’ve stayed in Abaca– our first time was for our wedding reception where we invited friends to fly over and booked the whole property for the weekend. It was an eventful weekend but this second stay is a different experience– we just get to relax and unplug ourselves from the world.


Our lavish 125 square meters Sea View Villa featured our very own private plunge pool, high vaulted ceilings, a very comfortable king-size bed, seating area, a work desk with an iMac, a spa-like bathroom with 2 sinks, a huge shower and pedestal tub.
Although the Sea View Villa is their biggest villa in the property, we prefer the Ocean Front Villa(where we stayed the first time) which has a large terrace with arresting views of the Mactan Channel. The Ocean Front Spa Villa doesn’t have its own private plunge pool, but the resort’s main pool is usually quiet and under-patronised, even with a near full-house.


The property is also a gastronomic delight with their in-house restaurant. Chef Jason Hyatt of The Abaca Group is the guy behind the best restaurants in Cebu– Phat Pho, Tavolata, Beqaa, Maya, Abaca Baking Company, Luncheonette, and Red Lizard; and if that’s any indication, Abaca Resort‘s restaurant seriously does not disappoint. You can eat beneath the shade of the cabanas, by the pool, or at the restaurant where casual but no less fabulous cuisine is served.


The resort also has their own spa. They only have 2 treatment rooms but you can request to have your massage done in the privacy of your own villa, or even down by the pool cabanas.



Our stay wouldn’t have been perfect without the personable service given by everyone in the resort– from our butler, the hotel staff, the restaurant staff, the chef and the rest of his team, they were all so genuine.


Without a doubt, Abaca Boutique Resort + Spa is a wonderful place to escape the world and leave your cares at the door.

This resort definitely lives up to it's reputation. It is the BEST resort in Mactan! It was very private and intimate. We experienced excellent service all throughout our stay. Their rooms and amenities are beautiful. Food was delicious! I had the BEST birthday celebration with my family. Our only regret is we only stayed for one night!

Title says it all.

Simply the best service I've experienced in all the countries I've visited. The kitchen is willing to cook up out of menu requests and their butler service is praise worthy!

Thank you, Abaca! I'll definitely be back.

This hotel is outstandingly good. The staff are committed, friendly, and seamlessly do all they can to make your stay as good as possible. They should all be very proud of what they do and achieve here. The food and venue is exceptional. It is a private oasis amidst the Mactan resorts. They smoothly hosted the most fantastic wedding. I thoroughly recommend staying here. A real gem.

This is a lovely and quite place located close from Cebu airport. Ideal for a rest after a long travel from Europe. Ambiance, furniture, view and friendliness of the staff is perfect. I would recommand Abaca Resort without hesitation
