THE VENUE:

Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa, Cebu, Philippines


At the heart of the innovation hub of the Philippines

The First Integrated STEM Leadership Summit in Asia will take place at the Shangri-La's Mactan Resort and Spa, located at Cebu, Philippines. Cebu, also known as the Queen City of the South, is set to become the innovation hub of the country.


Cebu was the first capital and also the first Spanish settlement in the country. Today, it is known for its museums and churches as it highlights Cebu’s vibrant history as a former Spanish colony.


About half an hour’s drive from Mactan Cebu International Airport, Shangri-La Mactan Resort and Spa is a 13-hectare oceanfront resort with a tropical garden setting. It has 530 guest rooms and suites, and seven restaurants and bars. A five-minute beachside walk from the hotel will bring guests to the resort’s Marine Sanctuary, where visitors can encounter diverse species of fish, clams, and coral on a snorkelling tour.


The resort’s spa, CHI, provides treatments based on natural healing methods practiced in different Asian cultures.
