Over the past decade, Radisson Blu Cebu has maintained its standing as one of the best luxury hotels in Cebu City, if not the entire Philippines, since opening its doors in 2010. It is the one and only upscale hotel of the international Radisson hotel group in the country.
Catering primarily to “bleisure” travelers looking for a work-play balance, the five-star, 21-floor hotel stands proudly at the North Reclamation Area, right next to SM City Cebu, boasting of 400 well-appointed rooms, excellent dining experiences, and luxurious amenities, including a newly renovated swimming pool.
Here are 10 good reasons for you to visit or book a stay. Find discounted rooms and check room availability here!
10. 24-Hour Gym
All hotel guests enjoy complimentary access to the gym, which is open for 24 hours. Accessed using your room keycard, the facility is located at P2, below the lobby level (towards the pool area). It provides a lot of space and plenty of gym equipment for you to stay active and in shape while on vacation, including cardio machines, free weights and weight resistance machines.
9. Generous Event Spaces
Radisson Blu Cebu is an international award-winning MICE hotel with 2,575 sqm of event space! Whether you’re planning a five-person board meeting or a gala dinner, they can provide the perfect space, including two elegant ballrooms, 10 meeting rooms, and an outdoor plaza.
8. Daily Afternoon Tea
The merienda cena buffet has become a popular staple for many hotels in the city, but Radisson Blu Cebu offers something different and more refined with their afternoon tea, available everyday from 1 to 5pm at the palatial Lobby Bar. Enjoy sandwiches, scones, macarons and other delicious finger food with free-flowing Dilmah tea or coffee for only ₱999 net for two persons.
7. Luxurious Spa Experiences
Whether you’re a check-in guest or walk-in customer, the hotel’s posh spa at P2 level, SPA ESC, is available to attend to all your pampering needs. They now have a growing number of treatments and packages – including massages, body scrubs and facials – and longer operating hours to help heal and restore your body and soul at your convenient time with their friendly and accommodating crew of masseuses.
Enjoy ₱800 in savings when couples book the Couple’s Aromatherapy Massage (₱3,000 for two persons), featuring 60 minutes of bliss with the Reboot Essential Aromatherapy massage. If you’re looking for a local experience, I highly recommend the Reboot Awakening Filipino Hilot (₱2,500), which uses hot coconut oil, banana leaves, and Filipino massage techniques. Prior reservations required.
6. Exclusive Business Lounge
Business Class Rooms come with complimentary access to the Club Lounge on the 20th floor, where guests can enjoy private spaces to dine, lounge and conduct meetings. The club lounge serves a complimentary breakfast buffet (6 to 10am) with lesser options but quieter dining experience, as well as afternoon snacks (1 to 4pm) and cocktail buffet (5 to 7pm) with free-flowing wine, beer and cocktails.
5. Spacious Rooms & Suites
Despite having 400 rooms, this hotel doesn’t skimp on space across all room types! Accommodations start with the entry-level Superior Rooms and Business Class Rooms with a floor area of 35 sqm, while the top-end rooms, like the Deluxe Suite and Presidential Suite, have floor areas of 100 sqm and 165.5 sqm respectively.

4. Renovated Garden Pool
A modest-sized garden sits behind the hotel building with a pool bar and swimming pool, offering a delightfully surprising oasis of greenery and relaxation. While enjoying the garden pool, you’ll soon forget that you’re in the middle of an industrial area, and be whisked away to an island resort. The newly renovated pool was only reopened last month with fresh tiles and more lounge space on the center islands. Walk-in guests can avail the “Snack & Swim” day-use promo: ₱1,200 for adults and ₱1,000 for kids below 12 with ₱800 consumable on food and drinks from the Pool Bar.
3. Amazing City Views
Lording over the North Reclamation Area at 21 storeys high, guest rooms and the club lounge offer expansive views of the metropolis – from Mactan Island to the bustling city center to the westward mountains. Looking south, one can also see the newly opened Cebu-Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX), the longest and tallest bridge in the country, linking Cebu City to the town of Cordova on Mactan Island.
2. Convenient Location
Location is key when it comes to choosing a hotel. Radisson Blu Cebu is conveniently situated at the North Reclamation Area, next to the North Bus Terminal (where you can catch a bus or van to northern destinations like Bantayan and Malapascua) and MyBus Terminal (which serves the Mactan-Cebu International Airport). A covered walkway links the hotel to next-door SM City Cebu, one of the most popular shopping malls in the city.
1. International buffets
Great food is the highlight of any visit to Radisson Blu Cebu. This is best showcased at Feria, the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant at the lobby level, where they serve festive and sumptuous buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Their generous spreads are impressive in terms of quantity, quality and variety of the cuisines offered. Lunch and dinner buffet highlights include Filipino, Japanese, Indian, Chinese and Western dishes.
The following buffets are available for check-in guests and walk-in customers: breakfast (6 to 10:30 am) for ₱1,288 net per person, lunch (12 to 3pm) for ₱1,488 net per person, and Dinner (6 to 10pm) for ₱1,688 net per person.
