CEBU, Philippines — Jpark Island Resort and Waterpark expands another seven-hectare resort development adjacent to the existing property, making it the largest luxury resort on Mactan Island.

While the 10-year-old luxury resort had been successful in capturing the family market, Nowell said Jpark Mactan is also intensifying its grip in MICE events, as companies and organizations are starting to hold their events in beach locations too.

“MICE will play an important role especially with our new facilities,” said Nowell adding that potential to attract big events is not only rising in the Philippines, but the resort is also starting to become a preferred destination for organizations overseas particularly in the ASEAN region.

Corporate events nowadays, like conferences, are mostly being held in a destination that offers attractive rest and recreation facilities, resorts like Jpark benefit from this trend.
