Designed to be an iconic destination for leisure, business, and entertainment, the sprawling property is a collaborative masterpiece of renowned international master development planners and interior designers.
The design will reflect a majestic development executed with luxurious artistry to evoke world-class style and sophistication, evident in its expansive casino, three hotel towers, and four-level shopping haven.
Hotel brands include 379-room Fili Urban Resort, Grand Summit Hotel, which will all be managed by Robinsons Hotels and Resorts (RHR), the hospitality arm of Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC), and one of the Philippines’ top hotel chains.
Through its world-class casino, NUSTAR will introduce a new experience and pleasure of gaming with its floor area of 21,000 square meters, 1,500 machines, and 250 tables, the largest and most varied in Cebu.
Guests will surely enjoy the thrill of exciting gaming action and live performances at the Entertainment Bar and exclusive events at the Sports Bar.
Star-rated hotels will boast well-appointed rooms which will elevate the gold standard in luxury accommodations, while its vast retail space will showcase luxury brands, high-fashion boutiques, plush VIP cinemas, and a carefully-curated mix of global and regional dining concepts, featuring international and home-grown restaurants.
With health and safety being the utmost priority, the resort complex has a 100% vaccinated workforce and is equipped with disinfectant technologies to give guests peace of mind when staying at the resort.
As Asia’s newest leisure colony, NUSTAR is envisioned to be a choice venue for business events, conferences, social gatherings, and entertainment events in showcasing Filipino culture and artistry at its state-of-the-art performing arts theater.
The recreational enclave is expected to be a hub for domestic and international Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE). Its spacious exhibition halls, elegant ballrooms, and high-tech support facilities are suited for big events.
The property will also have a water theme park and viewing deck located at the pinnacle of the main NUSTAR Hotel tower, overlooking the mountains and the seas of Cebu.
Guests can also take a scenic walk along the 580-meter boardwalk connecting NUSTAR to the Cebu strait, designed by famed contemporary artist, JEFRË.
Located along Cebu’s coastal road, it is easily accessible via the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) via the soon-to-open Cebu Cordova Link Expressway (CCLEX).
