Named af­ter a colour that evokes pros­per­ity, pas­sion, and vigour, the Crim­son Ho­tels are known for el­e­gant hos­pi­tal­ity en­twined with el­e­ments of lo­cal cul­ture and cus­tom. Since it first opened its doors in Cebu in 2012, it has brought its unique aes­thetic and em­pha­sis on ex­cel­lence to some of the coun­try’s most iconic lo­ca­tions. The first ho­tel opened by the group in Lapu-Lapu City, the Crim­son Mac­tan has been lauded in the past year by both guests and travel writ­ers as one of Cebu’s most pres­ti­gious leisure des­ti­na­tions, gar­ner­ing awards such as TripAd­vi­sor’s Trav­eller’s Choice, World Lux­ury Spa Award’s Coun­try Win­ner for Best Re­sort Spa, Haute Gran­deur’s Coun­try Win­ner for Best Fam­ily Re­sort and Best Beach Re­sort, World Lux­ury Restau­rant Award’s Coun­try Win­ner for Lux­ury Grill/ Steak­house. This sprawl­ing six-hectare re­sort fea­tures 40 pri­vate vil­las with in­di­vid­ual plunge pools and 250 gue­strooms, just 20 min­utes away from the Mac­tan In­ter­na­tional Air­port, has also been rec­og­nized by the ASEAN with the Green Ho­tel Award. Com­bin­ing com­fort with a mod­ern Asian aes­thetic en­hanced by touches of Cebu’s lo­cal cul­ture, this trop­i­cal hide­away of­fers guests a re­vi­tal­iz­ing re­treat at the award-win­ning Aum Spa which of­fers a va­ri­ety of treat­ments rang­ing from tra­di­tional Filipino hilot mas­sages to unique of­fer­ings in­spired by spa tra­di­tions from Thai­land and Bali. Those seek­ing gus­ta­tory com­forts will en­joy meals pre­pared by world-class chefs at the Saf­fron Café. As night falls, guests can con­gre­gate at the Azure Beach Club for ex­cel­lent cock­tails to sip as the sun sets over the seas while await­ing steaks and fresh seafood hot off the grill. Both have been rec­og­nized as the Philip­pines’ finest restau­rants by past and cur­rent is­sues of the Philip­pine Tatler’s Best Restau­rants Guide. Whether one has just flown into the Ni­noy Aquino In­ter­na­tional Air­port or driven down from Makati, all roads lead to a sat­is­fy­ing stay at the Crim­son Ala­bang. Set in the midst of the bustling de­vel­op­ment that is

Fil­in­vest City, the ho­tel is ac­ces­si­ble via a num­ber of routes: the South Lu­zon Ex­press­way, Metro Manila Sky­way, and the re­cently-opened Daang Hari. Each of its 345 con­tem­po­rary gue­strooms fea­tures world-class ameni­ties with com­pli­men­tary high-speed WiFi con­nec­tion for both busi­ness trav­ellers with hec­tic sched­ules and tourists with a more leisurely itin­er­ary. A rest­ful sanc­tu­ary where one can for­get about the bustling mad­ness of the metropo­lis, the Crim­son Ala­bang fea­tures a cos­mopoli­tan aes­thetic as well as warm hos­pi­tal­ity and pas­sion­ate ser­vice. Whether one books for a fam­ily stay­ca­tion, a lifechang­ing event, or a busi­ness con­fer­ence, this ho­tel is a proper haven in the heart of the city.

Crim­son Re­sort and Spa, Bo­ra­cay, Ak­lan

It’s a re­sort that prom­ises to be as dy­namic and as world-class as the is­land des­ti­na­tion where it stands: Crim­son Bo­ra­cay is set to wel­come guests to the white sand beaches this year. Now ris­ing at Sta­tion Zero, the is­land par­adise’s most ex­clu­sive lo­ca­tion, Crim­son Bo­ra­cay is set to of­fer an ex­clu­sive re­sort ex­pe­ri­ence in the coun­try’s most pop­u­lar re­sort des­ti­na­tion as it of­fers a pris­tine white sand beach far re­moved from stress, noise, and mad­den­ing crowds. As op­posed to stan­dard is­land ac­com­mo­da­tions, Crim­son com­bines el­e­gant con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­ture, land­scap­ing, and in­te­ri­ors that utilise nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als. The laid-back is­land vibe is fur­ther en­hanced by an am­bi­ence that high­lights tra­di­tional hos­pi­tal­ity marked by warmth and bright smiles. Start­ing with the unique sea­port ar­rival and re­cep­tion, it seeks to de­liver a so­phis­ti­cated level of re­lax­ation to trav­ellers who want to get away from it all.
