CEBU CITY: 6am--- we were in a taxi to downtown Cebu City for a courtesy call with Hotel Elizabeth and the Center Suites.The familiar sights greeted us.It was a bit gloomy that day as another storm passes Northern Luzon similar to the case during our first visit to Cebu City back in 2008.
We were booked for an overnight stay at CRIMSON RESORT and SPA Mactan which I knew will be the main event of the trip.
But the moment we set foot on the property,the fresh resort feel set in.I realized that the sprawling setting of the resort is its biggest asset.
We were officially on VACATION MODE again!
CRIMSON RESORT and SPA is Asian inspired.It's classy and contemporary.The moment you step inside,that's the time you will notice that the entire Resort exudes of details.If the resort is food,it's tasty to the minutest bite.
We were taken to our room by a golf cart.It's not really far,One can just walk to any of the rooms scattered around this 6 hectare property by Filinvest Development Corporation (FDC).But I looooove golf carts!I remember Thunderbird La Union.So instead of making them carry my bag and walk, we took the golf cart instead.

kayaking at Crimson Resort and Spa Mactan
Every time I look at you
You always look so beautiful
Driving on the road again
The Chevys packed than and it is dust
And I would take some photographs
So I can dream of you
Can't say I've felt
Such twisting in my heart this way
We picture Ted and Avon sleeping
While you stay awake
The fire's burning softly
Singing songs so close to you
Do you believe
In love at first sight?
I think you do
We're lying naked under the covers
Those are the best days of my life
