Living like a local: A personalized Cebu experience care of your friendly Ascott Hosts
Soon-to-open Citadines Cebu City ensures long-stay guests a personalized stay by taking the much-loved Ascott Host program to new levels and combined with warm Visayan hospitality.
Imagine being welcomed home the moment you open your door – with a gift basket of your favorite treats based on your preferences. Your Ascott Hosts know just what you like—whether it’s the mangoes you rave over, the cookies your children love, the kind of water you drink, or anything else your family adores.
Ascott Hosts will be there to make you feel more at home and get to enjoy your stay like a local. They will let you know the best Cebuano delicacies and where you can find them, providing you with their mobile number so you can reach them whenever.
Got questions about Cebu? Your Ascott Hosts are ready to give you tips on the best spots, whether you are looking for pristine beaches, lush forests, or dive spots. They can help you find the best lechon and just about any local treats you want.
Just when you are beginning to miss home, you can always turn to your Ascott Hosts to help quash your blues and bring you back to enjoy the moment with birthday cards and small gifts. On some cases, they might even surprise you with notes from folks back home! Along with other Ascott Hosts, they would also organize pocket events and activities that you can attend such as neighborhood get-togethers, celebrations, and a quarterly gathering of residents.
Of course, your hosts will also remind you of the essentials – your security, parking, internet, and other concerns.
The warm yet unobtrusive presence of your Ascott Hosts ensure that your Cebu experience is exactly what you would like it to be. From the moment you step into the main lobby, you know that your comfort is assured.
Vibrant living in the Queen City
Designed to be both functional and cozy, Citadines Cebu City boasts spacious apartments that combine all the conveniences of a modern home and the services of a hotel. Each unit has its own fully-equipped kitchen, wireless internet access, and even a built-in a washer and dryer in some. For business travelers, it also has conference and meeting facilities, as well as a gym to help tenants stay fit and healthy.
Slated to open in September 2019, Citadines Cebu City boasts a local, fun, and functional vibe. Visitors are greeted by a burst of tropical coastal colors intermingling with natural wood, latticework, cane waves, stones, shell inlays, and local weaves. Accent lighting, cove ceilings, niches and trellises, all made by local craftsmen, evoke a natural feel.
“Cebu has so much to offer in terms of business and travel opportunities, but we would also like our guests to experience the service par excellence of our Ascott Hosts,” said Daniel Wee, Country General Manager for The Ascott Limited, Philippines.
Citadines Cebu City, located at Baseline Center along Juana Osmeña Street, is the fourth Citadines Apart’hotel property in the Philippines, joining Citadines Salcedo Makati, Citadines Millennium Ortigas Manila, and Citadines Bay City Manila.
Recognizing the opportunity to meet growing expectations, The Ascott Limited (Ascott), one of the leading international lodging owner-operators, formed a synergistic partnership with leading developer Cebu Landmasters Inc. (CLI) to open Citadines Cebu City, as a way to level up the hospitality industry.
“Visayas is on a high-growth phase and we would like Ascott to be there, to provide options that travelers are looking for,” said Mr. Wee.
