Cebu as one of the “top tourist destinations in the country” is getting more and more attention now and raising the roof. Well, that’s a good thing though, since they want to exceed our expectations when it comes to progress and developments. That only means more tourists. Yay!
SM Seaside City Cebu, “The Biggest Mall in VisMin”
Cebu, also known as the “Queen City of South” , is famous for their dried mangoes and danggit. They are also rich in historic places like Mactan Shrine and Basilica del Santo Niño. Then recently, late last year, SM opened SM Seaside City Cebu. It is SM Prime Holdings’ 56th mall in the country, third in Cebu, and 4th largest mall in the country. Oh yes! This is another addition on your bucket list!
Located on a 93,570-sqm property, the 470,490-sqm mall is labelled as the “biggest mall in VisMin.” It is designed by Arquitectonica, an international architecture, interior design, and planning firm based in Miami, Florida.
SM Seaside City Cebu is often compared to SM Mall of Asia, since they are both located beside the waterfront. If SM Mall of Asia has Manila bay with its astounding sunset, well, SM Seaside City Cebu has an amazing view of the Cebu Channel.
Let’s proceed to its iconic landmarks. If MOA has its huge globe to welcome you, of course SM Seaside has its remarkable cube that symbolizes strength and stability. Fun fact: the word Cube, when re-arranged will give you the word Cebu. Right?!
Anyway, SM Seaside City Cebu is too big to offer you the best they can give. The first to open in SM Seaside City Cebu is the 100-wall Chapel of San Pedro Calungsod. Designed by New York-based Filipino-American architect Carlos Arnaiz, the chapel has a very distinct modern and interesting structure.
They have SM Supermarket, SM Foodcourt and of course, the SM Store. It also offers over 800 shops and food tenants, with both local and international brands. This will surely be not just a shoppers’ wonderful haven but also a foodie destination with its wide array of specialty restaurants, international and local food chains.
SM Seaside City Cebu also boasts of entertainment and recreational facilities that friends and families will surely enjoy. They have two Director's Club cinemas and four state-of-the-art cinemas plus a Centerstage that can accommodate over 800 audiences, that is perfect for concerts, stage plays and other events and performances. For those who want some physical activities, they also offer an 16-lane bowling center and an ice skating rink that can accommodate both competitive and recreational figure skating.
And not to forget is the playground located at the Sky Park, which offers safe, child-friendly features children can enjoy! This Sky Park is also a great place to just relax after a day of shopping and breathe some fresh air while enjoying the relaxing panoramic sights of Cebu’s mountains.
For tech savvies, SM Supermalls’ tech hub, Cyberzone, opened its 40th branch at SM Seaside City Cebu. It offers techies with a wide range of shops and service centers for the latest in gadgets, electronics and tech accessories.
One of the features I am excited to see at SM Seaside City Cebu is The SM Seaside Tower. It is a structure with a, viewing deck and restaurants that will offer you an astonishing panoramic view of Cebu City.
They also have a Sky Park that has refreshing parks and ponds to enjoy. Also the Sky Hall, an awesome venue for shows, bazaars and exhibits. Now tell me, what more do you need? SM Seaside City Cebu is Above All Else!
With the opening of SM Seaside City Cebu, I am so excited to visit Cebu City again and experience the many things to do and see in “VisMin’s Biggest Mall.” Hmmmmm… When will it be? Hopefully, soon!
