A Look At Our Stay At The bai Hotel In Cebu

Bai Hotel Cebu Main Entrance


After previously arranging for convenient ✈ airport pickup with the hotel prior to our arrival, we were met and greeted by a hotel representative, just beyond the 🧳 luggage pickup area.

We were quickly transported to the hotel in a very clean, private air conditioned 🚗 vehicle. What a nice surprise after coming off our early flight from; 🏝 Palawan.

Arriving at the 🏨 hotel a short time later, we were immediately greeted by friendly staff and security at the hotel entrance.

Stepping into the beautiful lobby, we knew we were in for a wonderful stay, for our last 2 nights of our 28 day Philippines vacation. The lobby surroundings were very luxurious, check in was quick and we were escorted to our room a very short time after arriving.

Cafe Bai Buffet


bai Hotel Introduces No Leftover Policy


Bai Hotel Cebu Leftover Policy


What we discovered on each table, was a small notice introducing the hotels – No Leftover Policy. This was a first for us in all our years of travel, and was absolutely wonderful to see!

The hotel is encouraging guests to enjoy their buffet, but reminding them at the same time, to only take what they feel they can eat. It’s a friendly reminder to help minimize needless waste, and also help to create a greener environment for everyone.

The notice does say the hotel would charge a minimum fee for leftover food. This may be a little difficult to enforce, but at the same time, they are only trying to remind their guests to – think about this message.

A little food for thought for guests, before heading to the buffet and filling their plates as high as a 🏔 mountain top!

Take What You Can Eat and Eat What You Take!

I thought this was excellent, and a great inspiration to other hotels serving similar buffet style dining. Particularly the waste we’ve seen at the major hotel resorts in Las Vegas – Nevada, at the casino resorts popular buffet restaurants.

Premier Executive Club Lounge

On the morning before heading to the 🛫 airport to catch a flight back home to 🍁 Canada, we were treated by staff to breakfast in their; Executive Club Lounge, located on the 22nd floor.

As well and a very convenient option for executive travelers, staff in the lounge can take care of checking out of your room, concierge assistance and more. All, without having to go to the front desk in the hotel lobby.

What a wonderful treat to be pampered in such a way, during our final hours at this beautiful hotel and our time in the Philippines.

We can’t wait to return one day soon!

Cebu Park Mall Shopping Center

Park Mall and Bai Hotel Cebu


What we also really enjoyed about staying at this hotel, was that it was located directly across the street from the 🏬 Park Mall Shopping Center.

There’s shopping galore at this modern mall, including a variety of restaurants and a large supermarket located on site.

It was great to have the mall just steps away, to browse around during our stay at the hotel.
