WHY YOUR NEXT VACATION SHOULD BE WITH US. A vacation in Plantation Bay will be more prudent than in most resorts for the following reasons: A. Plantation Bay is a complete destination resort, where they can spend their entire holiday without ever going outside where they might be exposed at random to the virus. B. Plantation Bay is very spread out, and almost all its facilities are open-air. As now scientifically proven, most Covid-19 transmission occurs in close-contact indoor situations in which people stay close together for long periods. By its unique open-air design, Plantation Bay is inherently unconducive to catching Covid-19. There are no enclosed corridors and elevators where the virus may linger in the air up to 4 hours after someone coughed in that space, and we have vast lagoons and pools where people will not be tightly-packed. There are a lot of activities that guests can do inside the resort, so guests will not be tempted to go out where they might catch the virus in public markets or lower-end restaurants.

Staff will approach you right away in the middle of your mobile call. You will surely feel deprived especially it was not written on the entrance or noted on tables or upon check in. No fun noise allowed.

Response from Efren Belarmino, General Manager at Plantation Bay Resort And Spa
Responded 4 days ago
Dear Starmanxxx, Plantation Bay is proud to be one of the few hotels in the world that proactively protects guests' right to peace and quiet. With this in mind, we have strict rules against audible electronics and prolonged tele-conversations are not permitted in our restaurants precisely because this ruins the relaxing ambience for other guests, who didn't come all the way here so they could hear your chitchat and "fun noise." Had you read your confirmation email, you would have noted that we did advise you of these rules. In fact, similar signs are posted in different areas in the restaurant. Perhaps you were too busy looking at your gadget to notice them. To our readers, if you are like this guest, you are welcome to book in another hotel, leaving Plantation Bay to guests who practice common courtesy and respect for others. Sincerely, Efren P. Belarmino General Manager

It was a great stay with you, Plantation Bay. As always, great staff and good food! My son and the entire family really enjoyed our stay with you. Although the air-conditioning in our room was not working well, you really fixed it that day (even it took you until night time). You even provided kits like alcohol, mask and gloves. Overall, it was nice and relaxing stay!

Dear Michelle C, It is always nice to read about returning guests like you having another great stay at Plantation Bay! Our staff and chefs loved your feedback and were ecstatic to hear that your son especially enjoyed his time with you here in the resort. Like you, most recent guests appreciate the comprehensive precautionary measures we've taken to protect everyone during this pandemic; they find these safeguards responsible, meticulous, but reasonable while still allowing them to fully enjoy the resort experience. Thanks again for the kind sentiments. Sincerely, Efren Belarmino General Manager

We stayed here during our quarantine stay when we went home to the Philippines. We didn’t feel like we were quarantined at all because of the calm and peaceful environment of the place. It was a stress-free stay because the staff took care of all our needs, as well as the coordination with the appropriate agencies regarding our swab test results and airline concerns. Kudos to the General Manager, Mr Efren Belarmino, for a job well done!

Dear MA R Fernandez, Thank you for sheltering in place at Plantation Bay! We accommodated scores of returning overseas Filipinos from Canada to the USA to the UK to Japan these past months, and like you, all of them appreciated our tranquil ambience and helpful service. Our proactive staff are indeed our biggest asset, and it's always uplifting to meet a guest who appreciates our efforts at looking after our guests. Thanks again for the heartwarming review. Keep safe! Sincerely, Efren P. Belarmino General Manager

Metro Manila, Philippines9 contributions2 helpful votes
Because of the Covid pandemic, my flight from San Francisco to Manila was cancelled 4 times. Finally Philippine Airlines advised my July 3 flight was moved to July 4 & redirected to Cebu Province instead of Manila. Testing for Covid & hotel Quarantine would be in Lapu Lapu City, Cebu Province. At first I was hesitant due to the rise of Covid infections in Cebu City. I was scared but decided to push through. Having had 4 previous cancellations, my return flight was long overdue. God be praised! My odyssey went very well. San Francisco Airport was eerily empty except for PAL counters. I landed safely at 4:30AM July 6 in Mactan Airport, Lapu Lapu City. Deplaned at 4:40 & was done with all - immigration & Covid testing by 5:10 a record 30 minutes! Mactan Airport had their systems in place; the airport Bureau of Quarantine & Covid testing personnel were efficient. Hotel liaison staff fetched me at 5:15AM & I was in Plantation Bay Resort & Spa in 20 min. The reservations desk gave me a gorgeous suite with a beautiful view of the lagoon. An ante room with powder room, bedroom with beautifully appointed bathroom with tub & top all these with a wonderful view of the lagoon! Everything was spotless & very clean. I will enjoy my quarantine here I thought to myself; the ambience is so relaxing. I had breakfast outside in the lanai with birds chirping, the warm sun to boost my immune system & a cool breeze. I was pleasantly surprised as the Covid test result was released after 1 day, at 9AM July 7! The hotel front desk took care of printing my negative test result & my Quarantine Medical Clearance. July 8 noon flight to Manila left on time. My stay in Plantation Bay Resort & Spa was not only pleasant during this time of Covid, it was comforting as I knew the hotel passed all health & quarantine safety regulations.
