CEBU, Philippines - In celebration of Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa’s recent recognition from Travel + Leisure 500 and the World Travel Awards, the resort offers a limited celebratory treat for local residents.

Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa is the only resort in Cebu to be included in Travel + Leisure 500, the publication’s list of best hotels in the world as determined by a survey of the magazine’s readers. Fourteen properties of the Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts group made it to the list this year. Shangri-La was awarded the number one spot in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Malaysia, Taiwan and the Philippines. The T+L 500 results are based on the World’s Best Awards survey, in which Travel + Leisure subscribers evaluated hotels on five characteristics: rooms and facilities, location, service, restaurants and food, and value. The publication calculated the average rating of each characteristic and tabulated each property’s overall score.
Meanwhile, the World Travel Awards hailed Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa as Asia’s Leading Beach Resort. Established in 1993, the World Travel Awards is the most comprehensive, biggest and most prestigious awards program in the travel industry worldwide. Every year, travel agents and industry professionals take part in a worldwide voting process. Nominations are judged according to consistent overall performance and success, understanding visitor needs and expectations for a supreme customer experience, high level of customer satisfaction, and fostering innovation and creativity.
