Solea Mactan Cebu Resort: New Venue for Team Building in Cordova, Cebu, Philippines

Cebu Teambuilding Facilitators Network facilitated Fairchild Multi-purpose Cooperative’s team building event last January 28, 2017. The venue was held in the developing Cordova property of Solea Mactan Cebu Resort. This was the first time CTFN conducted a program at Solea.

The resort may be difficult for some to find, since it is not directly linked to the main road. However, the narrow road going to Solea can found along Cordova’s main road. The resort's name in itself is tricky. Solea is not situated in Mactan, but in the adjacent island of Cordova.

Once you enter the venue, you will find it connected to its neighbor and sister resort, Best Western Sandbar. CTFN has done a couple of programs at Best Western Sandbar in the past (for Autoliv and Quality Schools International Shenzen).

The venue has a good amount of parking if you wish to book an overnight team building or outing.  Also, since Solea Resort is just neighbors with Best Western Sandbar Resort, use of Best Western’s  outdoor facilities are permitted once you have booked at Solea.

Upon entering Solea’s lobby, you will see a large span of swimming pools in the area. Their infinity pool and extended swimming pools are great for pool activities, or simply chilling out. Be aware though that there are rules and regulations governing pool use and some activities may not be permitted. So make sure to ask before doing any activity. There have been team building services providers that have been banned from Solea and Best Western Sandbar for not adhering to the rules.

Solea has a mini bar situated near their lobby, and includes the posh Earth all day dining restaurant right next to it. Solea and Best Western’s connected outdoor venue is huge, and can be great for outdoor activities. They have a large beach area, and a lagoon where we had our Amazing Triathlon event for Fairchild Cooperative.

Their outdoor venue is still under development at the moment though, and we are expecting to find more great areas for conducting team building activities.

If you wish to avail a private venue, they also have a function room complete with chairs, tables, and sound systems.
