Best Western Cebu Sand Bar Resort opens in the Philippines

Best Western International launched a hotel on the tropical island of Mactan, off the coast of Cebu.

The Best Western Cebu Sand Bar Resort is a 58-room midscale hotel located in the Municipality of Cordova. The property offers a freeform outdoor swimming pool, an entertainment center, playground and massage services. There is also a car rental desk.

Targeting the MICE market, Best Western Cebu Sand Bar Resort offers complimentary Internet throughout the hotel, and has, among others, three meeting rooms and a ballroom measuring 3,013 square feet.

In 2013, Best Western International launched Best Western Plus Lex Cebu Hotel.

With its opening, Best Western Cebu Sand Bar Resort becomes the seventh Best Western International hotel in the Philippines, and boosts its nationwide inventory to more than 640 rooms. The company also operates midscale Best Western hotels in Manila, Angeles City and Borocay, and upscale Best Western Plus hotels in Makati City and Cebu.

In the next two years, Best Western's expansion in the Philippines will continue, with plans for four more hotels, including two more in Cebu. In total, the company plans to operate 11 hotels with almost 1,200 rooms by the end of 2014.
