After the Sinulog craze, Cebu’s hospitality sector is gearing up for another wave of local and foreign tourists for the Chinese New Year celebrations this January 28.
Hotels like Radisson Blu and Marco Polo Plaza Cebu have received more bookings, with both hotels reporting their occupancy rates to be in the high 90s. Marco Polo noted how this often becomes one of the busiest times of the year for their hotel as they accommodate Chinese locals and leisure guests.
Resorts in Cebu are also experiencing the same thing as the upcoming celebration starts to boost their bookings.
Movenpick Hotel Mactan Island Cebu is being booked between 90 and 100 percent, while Shangri-La Mactan Resort is fully booked over the Chinese New Year weekend.
Radisson Blu will treat their guests to the creations of Chinese chef Steve Ang at Feria’s traditional Chinese New Year buffet.
Marco Polo will usher in the year of the rooster with the Giant Yee Sang Salad Toss on Chinese New Year’s eve, along with a traditional lion and dragon dance, firecrackers, eye dotting, a wushu performance, and coin tossing. Guests can also indulge in Café Marco and its promotions set for the weekend celebrations.
Chinese cultural performances and Chinese buffet can be expected at Shangri-La and Movenpick as well.
