With its pristine white sands and glimmering blue seas, it’s no wonder Mactan Island has become a prime tourist destination in the Philippines. In fact, the experiences the island has to offer have become so enticing that many hope to make their getaways more permanent—and with many world-class residential developments rising on the island, it’s a dream that’s certainly possible.

It’s on these sunny shores that Rockwell Land has arrived. In the past 23 years, Rockwell has built more than just developments–they have created communities that enjoy and appreciate sophistication and style, exclusivity and security. Now, Rockwell is on the move to expand their reach–and that has extended to Mactan Island through an upcoming residential-resort development.
This comes just four years after the company launched 32 Sanson in Cebu. With the first phase fully completed, 32 Sanson has become a premier residence for tranquil garden living in the middle of the city.
With its next community in Mactan, Rockwell hopes to maximize the natural beauty and innate history of the location, while staying through to their brand values. “Cebu is known for its beautiful resorts and growing tourism, and is a city filled with so much culture and a hub for artisan design,” says Davy Tan, Rockwell Land’s Vice-President of Business Development. “We wanted to incorporate that into our property, along with the signature Rockwell lifestyle.”

Of course, this is the first time the Rockwell lifestyle will come with a panoramic beachfront, making this a landmark development. It also makes the first time the brand’s hospitality arm–named after the Filipino word that means to ‘take care,’ which is indicative of the service they offer—is opening outside of Metro Manila.
With amenities that go beyond the usual creature comforts, it will offer the luxe tropical experience to both its residents and guests. “We are bullish on tourism as a growth driver and in Cebu especially, with the expansion of the Mactan airport,” continues Davy, referring to the expected 13 million annual arrivals upon the completion of Mactan-Cebu International Airport’s Terminal 2.
The 4.75-hectare property was especially designed to ensure guests can enjoy private moments in their own spaces. Pools, multi-purpose pavilions, restaurants and retail outlets, and other facilities offer a full range of services and experience. Diving and snorkeling spots are also just a short swim away, and a variety of water and marine activities will be available as well.
With its sprawling white sand beaches and glimmering blue waters, Mactan Island has become a premier travel and residential destination.
Those who do choose to make this their permanent address will do so by the shores of the residential tower. The spacious living areas complement the large windows with scenic views of the sea, creating the feeling of airiness and bringing the inviting view outside in. Units will also have balconies, which give its occupants the opportunity to enjoy lazy afternoons listening to the sound of the waves, or nightcaps by the light of the moon.
What makes Rockwell in Mactan an even more appealing address on the island is its accessible location. The property is approximately 20 minutes from the airport, and just a bridge crossing away from a bustling urban center.
With everything it has to offer, Rockwell is set to create one of the best experiences Mactan will have to offer. Whether you’re coming in for a much-needed vacation or looking for a way to make the beachside your home, Rockwell in Mactan invites you to make it your personal version of an island paradise.
