Take Me to Solea: The Perfect Staycation in Mactan

Comfort. Peace. Style. Good Food.

The four pillars of a perfect staycation made even better by Solea Mactan Resort.

It speaks comfort and space. You will never bother or be bothered by anyone’s staycation because if Solea Mactan has something to brag, it is the space. The resort is very vast and open.

Solea Mactan sits on a 13-hectare property with over 300 rooms in 3 different buildings and 7 swimming pools + inflatable island. No wonder it is the top choice for family getaways, corporate affairs and team buildings, wedding receptions and other occasions.

Solea Mactan’s fresh contemporary aesthetics, from the amenities to the furniture, will surely invite you to give in to that pull of pampering.

One thing I can assure you of an overall experience at Solea Mactan Resort is that – you’ll never run out of things to do.  Here’s a list of thing which is a must-try upon visiting.

Largest Collection of Pools

Probably Solea’s best assets are its pools. They have the largest collection of pools I have ever seen and they are too beautiful. I really enjoyed drenching in each different kind of pool with different ambiance. You just have to pick and swim nonstop..


All-Day Dining Buffet

A feast, that is what awaits you in their in-house Earth restaurant. They serve  international and local cuisines from their appetizers to desserts. For 1,400 pesos a table for two.

It is worth your every penny! They are so generous in providing different dishes in a very reasonable price. If you’re in Solea, dining here is a must to complete your experience. And a word of advice, never walk out of that door without trying their homemade ice cream. ;)

  • Lunch Buffet: 12NN to 2PM

Inflatable for the Kids & Kids-at-heart

Go as extreme as trying out their giant inflatables. I thought doing obstacles was too easy but it was both a heavy exercise and a fun adventure. It’s good to know that there are lifeguards that act as guides to the obstacle. Overall, it was unforgettable and summer fun appropriate.

Outdoor Fun under the Sun

With its wide land area, Solea is really perfect for biking and hover-boarding. I enjoyed it a lot. Biking around the hotel vicinity then lounging in their game room after. It’s the perfect relaxing exercise we all deserve.

Indoor Play

Chill. Eat. Drink.

You can also book a spa, sight see or just do plain quiet walks. You can also do food tripping, or drinking and chilling at the rooftop bar. These and you can do a whole lot more! I’m telling you, you’ll never get bored.

It’s the perfect staycation setup.
