Abaca was one of the most amazing places we've ever stayed, and the absolute best service we experienced anywhere. When we arrived at the airport an hour and a half late, we greeted by our smiling butler, Sheena. The car was air conditioned and she provided us with a cold towel, much needed after a flight from HK. The drive...

There is a reason why this hotel is number one on the island. Right from when they pick you up at the airport, given a fresh cold towel and cold water you know you are in for a great stay. Everyone at the hotel is friendly and all know you name! I had a treatment at the spa sand whilst...

Every meal, excursion, interaction with staff far exceeded our expectations. The little touches and suggestions by the staff made all the difference. Not to mention the incredible property. The room, views and pool were perfect. It was sad to leave this perfect vacation but will be returning! Can not recommend this place enough!!

This is my partner and I second visit to Abaca (first time in April 2013). Our reason for coming back was it was absolutely do-nothing-relaxation attitude with luxury. All the resort staff, from housekeeping, to concierge and butler, to restaurant and poolside had the most positive and welcoming attitudes. They go out of their way to ensure that you are...

From Cebu’s International Airport, we were greeted by the our driver and made our way through the busy roads of Mactan Island, and 10 minutes later, uncovered the small but perfectly formed Abaca Boutique Resort. One of the most exclusive boutique resorts in the Philippines, this property has 6 suites and 3 villas– all very well-appointed. This is the second...

This resort definitely lives up to it's reputation. It is the BEST resort in Mactan! It was very private and intimate. We experienced excellent service all throughout our stay. Their rooms and amenities are beautiful. Food was delicious! I had the BEST birthday celebration with my family. Our only regret is we only stayed for one night!

Title says it all. Simply the best service I've experienced in all the countries I've visited. The kitchen is willing to cook up out of menu requests and their butler service is praise worthy! Thank you, Abaca! I'll definitely be back.

This hotel is outstandingly good. The staff are committed, friendly, and seamlessly do all they can to make your stay as good as possible. They should all be very proud of what they do and achieve here. The food and venue is exceptional. It is a private oasis amidst the Mactan resorts. They smoothly hosted the most fantastic wedding.
