If you’re someone like me who loves a good respite from the city’s hustle and bustle but hates long travels, then Bai Hotel is the answer to your prayers. Situated in the middle of Cebu and Mandaue, Bai Hotel is the perfect getaway destination without needing to travel far.
I had the chance to visit the newest luxe hotel in the south when Bai Hotel hosted this year’s Huawei Sugbo (a group of mobile photography enthusiasts which I am a part of) end of year meet-up and boy did I enjoy that event! All we did was take photos – eat – repeat!
I’m no expert hotel reviewer but here are the top 5 reasons why you need to check out the place.
5 Reasons Why You Need to Visit Bai Hotel With Your Family
Instagrammable place – I had to include this because life is fleeting but Instagram likes are forever. Ha! If you haven’t noticed by now, aside from good food and amenities, people prefer if the place is aesthetically pleasing to the eyes. Why? Because Instagram feed is life! 😉 Kidding aside, the place is truly a sight for sore-eyes. Even just the Bai Hotel’s lobby is already a sight to behold.
The Food – With 8 sit-down restaurants to choose from, finding good food is not a problem. There’s Ume Japanese Cuisine, that serves really good Maguro Sashimi. To die for. It simply melts in your mouth! Marble + Grain – If you like steaks, then head to this place. They serve all kinds of steaks from around the world! Then of course, there’s Café Bai, an All Day Buffet Dining Restaurant serving a wide array of Asian and Western Cuisines. I had to sit and drink coffee at the Wallstreet Coffee + Bar for an hour after lunch because I think I ate too much. Couldn’t help it. The sushi bar had my name on it!
The swimming pool that will give you Marina Bay Sands feels – If flying to Singapore to wade in the infinity pool of Marina Bay Sands isn’t in your budget right now, don’t worry, Bai Hotel’s infinity swimming pool on the 21st floor will give you the same feels. Imagine yourself swimming under the stars with the city skyline as your view. Awesome. Margarita in hand? Perfection. They are offering day-use for a limited time (depending on availability as well) for 1,500PhP but you need to call and make a reservation first!
The amenities – Aside from the infinity outdoor lap pool, Bai hotel also has a fitness center with sauna and steam rooms. They also have 12 conference and meeting rooms and a ballroom that can accommodate 350 to 400 guests. This makes the hotel a perfect venue not just for getaways but for those important family events and occasions, too.
Accessibility- Aside from the good food, this is the selling point for me. As a mother who constantly worries about things, location is very important to me. When I take the kids somewhere for a quick getaway, I always think about convenience and accessibility. What if I need to get medicines? Or if I need to run to the convenience store for stuff! Do you know what it takes to run a family of four? It takes a ninja mom and a truckload of wet wipes. and a million of other stuff that kids need. I don’t like to get stuck somewhere with no access to medical facilities (I have asthmatic kids who are allergic to a lot of things! Ugh!) and supermarket. Within the vicinity of Bai Hotel is a large mall and top notch medical facilities. A mother’s heart will be at ease.
There you go! My top 5 reasons why you should take your family to Bai hotel, the newest luxe hotel AND foodie destination in the South! I hope you enjoy your stay!
