Sheraton’s Topping Off Ceremony
Special guests and friends from the media got to experience what it is like to live in Sheraton through a multi-sensory journey last January 24, 2019. Stations situated around the showroom which are gastronomic experience, therapy experience, photography experience, musical experience, and crafting area helped each of the 5 senses that allows people to get a feel of a heartfelt everyday life in Sheraton.
On the same sunny afternoon, Sheraton holds a Topping Off Ceremony for the Residences and Resort by Apple One Inc., joined in by Ray, Venus, Samatha, and Ray Patrick Manigsaca. The Courtyard Villas were officially launched as well.
Soon to open, The Residences at Sheraton Cebu Mactan Resort is here to transform one’s everyday living experience with a sanctuary of elevated living. With Singapore architecture incorporated with Filipino luxurious materials such as natural stone, rattan, and shells, one will definitely feel the island vibes during their stay at the Residences, located at Punta Engano, Mactan, Cebu. As the party kept on going, we got an exclusive tete-a-tete with the Manigsaca family to talk about the plans for Sheraton’s resort and residences.
How many Sheratons are in the Philippines? "The one in Cebu second one and that for a 5-star hotel that started in the Philippines, the first one to have a local gym is Sheraton Manila and the second one is Sheraton Cebu. And just to add to that, our condominium is the only Sheraton branded condominium, residence in South East Asia. Where we offer both a hotel and a residence."
When is expected of the Residences? In terms of amenities? "It’s a high-end condominium with a full service, as if you’re staying in a hotel. We will be housing 154 rooms for the tower and 36 for the courtyard. Included is 24/7 room service, and butler as if you’re in a hotel plus you have access to the amenities of both the hotel and residences as well so that’s one of the benefits of the residential owners. We will be having a big pool. Every service that the hotel is offering can also be availed by the people, the residential owners. “Why check in when you can move in?” that is our tagline."
When are the Residences and Resorts expected to open?
"The Residences is expected to open by late 2020 while the Resort will be turned over to Marriot towards the end of the year, and it is up to them when they will fully open, a grand reception is still to be scheduled."
What is expected with the Courtyard Villas in the Residences?
"The Courtyard is the lower part of the residences and at the helm of elevated resort-living offering a gorgeous view of what nature has to offer. It has a much bigger floor area, has grand 5-star amenities which include a pool, garden, signature spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, and open deck as one of the few."
