Sampan Garden Resort, Cebu’s first HELLO KITTY resort

Resorts in Cebu are getting more interesting. And we’re pretty much confident this will go viral. The fans, both the kids and the kids-at-heart, of the well-loved fictional character Hello Kitty will surely enjoy the new Sampan Garden Resort in Danao City, Cebu’s first ever Hello Kitty-themed resort.

Officially launched on November 27, 2017, Sampan Garden Resort is located in Purok 5, Panas Tuburan Sur Danao City. It features a mini playground and a Hello Kitty-themed cartoon-themed swimming pool.

However, Sampan Garden Resort might have encountered copyright issues for their commercial use of the popular Japanese cartoon character. Just last March 2018, the resort renovated its designs, removing all the images of Hello Kitty that made the resort very popular back then.



Note, these are NOT the pictures now; hence, tagged as “before” pictures.



These are the ACTUAL photos of the Sampan Garden Resort now.
