Of course, no party will ever be complete without good food and drinks, so much so that Movenpick even whipped up a 14-course Brazilian churrasco dinner of meat and seafood, featuring filet mignon, rib eye steak, baby back ribs, buttery rock lobsters, huge grilled prawns, lamb chops, and grilled chicken. Every single one of these fire-roasted skewers are basted with a special Brazilian marinade and spices concocted by Ibiza Beach Club’s talented chefs.
Daniel Trumpfheller, meanwhile, the hotel’s German food and beverage manager, is responsible for this gustatory experience.
“Since we wanted to create a laid-back atmosphere, we decided to try out the churrasco idea. This requires an interactive type of service, same as what we have in Movenpick Phuket, Thailand. So we have a constant supply of high quality meat and seafood here for our guests to enjoy,” he related.
Other restaurants within the hotel give guests a variety of dining experiences to choose from. The Forum—the bar located by the pool—is best for corporate functions while The Sails is the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant that offers a wide range of Filipino, Japanese, Korean and other international delicacies.
The hotel also offers water sports activities such as diving, Jet Ski, and parasailing, and for less stressful activities, one can enjoy relaxing treatments at Spa del Mar.
As for accommodations, the beachfront hotel features 245 luxury guestrooms and suites, which together with everything else that Movenpick has on offer, not only provide an escape from bustling Manila, but an experience that will surely take visitors to places further away than Cebu.
