Abaca' Resort, Cebu

One of the best things about living in Hong Kong is that it is so easy to get on a plane, take an hour or two flight, and be in a tropical paradise. Three day weekends in Hong Kong usually equal mini-holidays! I discovered a great new boutique hotel in Cebu, Philippines (a 2 and a half hour direct flight from Hong Kong), Abaca Resort.

Abaca Resort is the ultimate tropical getaway. This fabulous new resort only has 6 deluxe suites and 3 private villas creating the environment for total seclusion and ultimate relaxation. Each of the suites and villas are decorated with ethnic touches to reflect the beauty of Cebu. Every room boasts the elegant style of the tropics with accents on warm dark woods and natural stones. As a guest you can enjoy panoramic ocean views from the privacy of your own terrace or garden.

Abaca is also known for their fabulous restaurant. I had the chance to dine at this Mediterranean inspired restaurant, and it was absolutely fabulous. Chef-owner Jason Hyatt has created a complete menu of healthy cuisine with the freshest local fish and seafood, and imported meats and cheeses from around the world. All the vegetables and herbs are organic and grown in their own gardens. Menu choices include wood fired oven roasted meats, seafood, handmade pizzas and pastas, freshly baked breads, tapas and a variety of appetizers and salads.
