Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila is known for their luxurious amenities, oasis-like swimming pool in the middle of the city, and five-star service. And in 2025, the international luxury brand is opening a new hotel in Cebu City to serve travelers, staycationers, and businesspeople in that part of the country.

Sofitel Cebu City is set to be a 195-room hotel with two restaurants, a rooftop bar, and swimming pool and spa. It'll fit right in at the Cebu Business Park, especially with its plans for an executive floor lounge, business center, and meeting rooms in the mixed-use building designed by global architecture firm Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. The 50-hectare business park is also home to shopping centers like Ayala Center Cebu and Ayala Terraces, four-star hotel Seda Ayala Center Cebu, and residential condominiums like Solinea Tower.
