668-Room Bai Hotel Cebu Launched in Mandaue!

Bai” is a Cebuano term for a ‘male friend’; nowadays it can be used to refer to ‘friends’ in general. That is exactly how you would feel when you get to visit the newly launched Bai Hotel Cebu in Mandaue City, Cebu!

Still fresh from our recent trip, we are excited to share our experiences from the newest and currently the biggest city hotel outside of Manila!

From the airport, the hotel coaster fetched our traveling group from the airport and comfortably brought us to the hotel.

Bai Hotel Cebu is conveniently located along the North Reclamation Area, a booming area in Mandaue, Cebu and is a few minutes drive to/from the airport.

Bai Hotel is currently the biggest city hotel outside of Metro Manila with 668 rooms that offer a beautiful harbor and city view, complete with modern amenities and facilities.

Upon stepping into the hotel lobby, we were immediately welcomed by their friendly staff and a gigantic Christmas tree intricately decorated with Christmas balls, glistening accessories, and local handcrafted trimmings. A grand Christmas tree indeed that matches the grandiose host hotel.
