Montebello Villa Hotel


Amidst the hustle and the bustle of the city, you can never discard the fact that at times you need a stress free abode. You want to escape from the messy schedules, traffic jams and of course from crowded places and people.
Montebello Villa Hotel - Cebu's only Garden
Did you know that Montebello Villa Hotel is situated in the heart of Cebu City but reserves its serenity and calmness of its place. Cebu's only garden hotel, Montebello has been in the hospitality industry for four decades now yet they have proven their being dynamic and innovative in accepting changes but still keeping the tradition.


One humid Saturday afternoon, I was invited to spend my night in Montebello Villa Hotel. I seized the opportunity and rushed inside a cab to accept the invitation. A few minutes later,  I found myself standing wholly amazed of the hotel's lobby. A not 

so grand lobby, I would say, but a very cozy and very Cebuano way of welcoming their guests. I could just imagined the impact to a 'balikbayan' as Montebello Hotel definitely brings nostalgic impression to its guests. Interiors vividly emblazons Spanish- Cebuano designs. The architectural structure depicts a combination of traditional and contemporary points. It's general low-rise buildings creating a picturesque upper-class country-house, the place indeed serves as your "home away from home."

So, just in a few minutes, we were already in the Cabanas. Montebello's "classic country club" facing the poolside to pray tribute to its heritage where style canopies were designed to create a nostalgic, elegant,yet cozy atmosphere.

We were introduced to a variety of food that they served at Cabanas. The most famous and crowd's favorite is their huge yummy burger with fries in the side. They have made a menu dinner for us! And here are some of the photos I have taken:
