I have been to Plantation Bay in November 2007 but never got the chance to stay and explore the place. Now forward to June 2012, we finally had the chance to have a relaxing family staycation in this extremely comfortable resort. Although, the whole bunch wasn't complete because my brother and sister from Abu Dhabi were not there,the Plantation Bay experience was awesome! Though the Ocean Jet vessel that took us from Bohol to Cebu arrived late, Chris, the driver designated to fetch us from the Pier patiently waited for us for an hour. It didn't take long for the lady at the front desk to process out check-in and in no time we were nestled in our king-sized beds. We purposely reserved the room with a good view of the lagoon for the four of us so we can see other guests as they frolic in the waters.
My sister was so excited to go kayaking so right after lunch, we grab our beach towels and went kayaking for an hour under the heat of the afternoon sun. I know I confessed that I don't have a sense of balance but voila I was able to achieve balance the whole time we were paddling else our little boat would've capsized and I didn't want to submerge myself in the waters. Success!but my legs numbed though after that because I didn't dare move.
Aside from the shuttle that will take you anywhere you want to go within the resort, they also have a calesa ride. There's Borj who took us from the lagoon to Savannah Grill. Plantation Bay Resort is great for family fun because there's a variety of activities that you can do here. Aside from kayaking, they have other aqua rides, pools and slides, gym and game room,diving facilities, and for sports enthusiasts, they can try the indoor firing range, tennis courts, golf course, wallclimbing and even archery. And after you've tried all of these tiring activities, you can have a relaxing massage at the Mogambo Springs, Plantation Bay's health and relaxation spa.
Now, there's too much to say in one post so I'll save the gastronomic feast for another post. You bet I didn't forget that. For more info, visit Plantation Bay's website.
