FIVE-STAR resort brand Plantation Bay Resort and Spa has announced reduction of its rates under its Center for Assisted Luxury Living (Call Us Home) program.
From its previous rate of P100,000 for assisted living service, Plantation Bay’s executive officer-in-charge Cherry Allego said the resort slashed it to P75,000 to attract more guests to enjoy the resort’s premium hospitality service.
Call Us Home program is the resort’s new offering while it awaits for the resurgence of international and domestic tourism.
The resort said the program is “ideal for Filipino-Americans, Filipino-Europeans and other nationalities planning to retire to the Philippines or spend part of every year in the country.”
“(This is) a stress-free and one-stop solution for year-round or seasonal residence, or as a temporary base while evaluating where in the country you want to settle,” the resort said in its website. It said its eight-hectare property is an ideal location to stay in Cebu while the province is under varying stages of lockdown.
Assisted-living targets persons who are “in average health, not bed-ridden, but want help with daily tasks, and want to simplify their lives.” The program offers services like meals, housekeeping, laundry, mail and package, repair, transportation and basic clinic (BP, blood sugar, over-the-counter medicines, etc.).
“A well-run assisted-living establishment can replace your cook, housecleaner, laundress, driver, gardener and save the hassle of most kinds of simple errand, while also eliminating the stress of dealing with many different parties. All of these are either included in the basic rental cost, or provided at a fair pre-advised cost,” the resort said.
Guests can also request for additional services by arrangement, such as private nurse or group/private therapist.
Earlier, the Lapu-Lapu City Government said it is preparing to reenergize the city’s tourism industry. The tourism industry is a major player in the Lapu-Lapu City economy, providing thousands of jobs to city and non-city residents.
The Tourism Cultural and Historical Affairs Commission (TCHAC) had already inspected several resorts to check whether they are capable of implementing the government health protocol such as wearing masks and observing safe distance in their establishments.
The TCHAC personnel noted that some resorts need improvement. Sanitary inspectors and city health officials also gave safety tips to the resorts’ personnel.
“We look forward to opening up the domestic tourism market to revive the hospitality industry,” said TCHAC head Cindi King-Chan.
Lapu-Lapu City is home to world-class and international resorts. (KOC)
