Ching Hai makes waves in Cebu

·1 min read

ON August 15, 2022, Jpark Island Resort and Waterpark Mactan Cebu opened the doors of its Chinese restaurant, Ching Hai. Its name—which literally translates to “Blue Ocean”—was aptly chosen as the restaurant is located within the water park. “Ching,” which means “blue,” represents the wood element in Chinese culture, depicting growth and optimism. “Hai” means “ocean;” its vastness and endless possibilities that allow it to tease one’s palates from mild and fresh to well-seasoned and robust tastes to bring out the natural flavors of the dish.

Ching Hai is open to serve classic Catonese cuisine for lunch and dinner and seats up to 100 guests. It houses eight private rooms for exclusive family or corporate gatherings, and intimate booths for small groups. Guests are welcomed with a fresh, warm cup of traditional loose-leaf jasmine tea the moment they take their seat.

Ching Hai is one of the 10 restaurants under the helm of the resort’s new Vice President for Operations and General Manager, Brian Connelly. He has 40 years of restaurant experience across prominent properties in Asia Pacific, Middle East, and the United States, which makes him the perfect role to lead the country’s five-star family water park resort.

Ching Hai is open daily, except Thursdays. It is open for lunch from 12 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., and dinner from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. (PR)
