Plaza Premium Lounge opened its doors at Domestic Arrivals, Terminal 1 of Mactan Cebu International Airport in the Philippines for travellers arriving the destination known for a wide range of adventure, natural and historical attractions. Brimming with characters that never fail to charm both business and leisure travellers, the lounge is the second location in the airport following the first Plaza Premium Lounge landed Terminal 2 (International Departures), joining the world’s largest and award-winning network of independent airport lounges with more than 70 locations at over 35 international airports globally.

“Cebu is one of the most developed provinces in the Philippines and serves as the main hub for industries such as commerce, trade and education. The blooming economy has then elevated Mactan Cebu International Airport to be the country’s second busiest airport. It’s a great timing for us to tap on the continuity on passengers’ demand from the existing lounge to the new addition to make travel better for everyone.” said Song Hoi-see, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Plaza Premium Group.

A city filled with colonial landmarks, beach resorts, multi-coloured aquatic creatures and scenic islands, Cebu Philippines is always one of the popular holiday destinations among travellers. Cebu’s tourist arrivals increased by 14.33% in 2018, and the positive result is believed to be sustained in years to come.

“Terminal 1 is undergoing a total renovation plan that will complement Terminal 2’s resort-airport design concept and will provide an enhanced travel experience for the airport users. As we usher these improvements, we are glad to have Plaza Premium Lounge on board to establish its second lounge at Mactan Cebu International Airport.  We strongly believe the synergy built will continue to elevate the travel experience for our passengers,” commented by Andrew Acquaah-Harrison, Chief Executive Advisor of GMR Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC).

Located in the restricted area, the 3,000-square-foot lounge is open 24 hours to offer a spectrum of services and facilities for all travellers to immerse themselves in total relaxation and comfort for the ultimate guest experience, with a warm greeting through a bespoke hand-painted iconic Cebu beach landscape setting at the reception. Influenced with Spanish colonial elements, the lounge architecture incorporated the use of traditional arch-shaped mirrors adding a touch of softness to the overall ambiance. To embody vernacular architecture, the lounge features Bankaray, a locally sourced wood material used as vertical planks adding a unique texture to the walls.

Guests are invited to indulge in a wide range of facilities and services including food and beverage selections with live cooking kitchen, comfortable seating, shower facilities, complimentary Wi-Fi and recharging stations whilst staying updated on the latest news with complimentary magazines, newspapers and TV channels.  Evoking a lifestyle-inspired atmosphere with its capacity of 80 guests, Plaza Premium Lounge is the perfect space for everyone to eat, work, relax and meet.
