Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu announces partnership with Garmin Philippines

Cebu, Philippines, September 27, 2018 – Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu announces an exciting collaboration with Garmin Philippines, distributed by NAVCO Inc., on a brand-new initiative called “Shangri-La Mactan Stories” that will make Garmin VIRB cameras available for guests to use within the resort to help them capture their holidays in greater detail, enhancing an already multi-dimensional experiential journey.

Garmin, a brand with a long heritage of specializing in adventure watches and multi-sports gadgets, is also known for its range of ultra-high-definition 4k action cameras, the Garmin VIRB. Lightweight, each with its own waterproof case, the cameras are capable of capturing every moment in crisp, clear detail. Features include a high-sensitivity microphone, 3-axis image stabilization, built-in sensors and GPS capture data, and voice control. Garmin products also allow quick social sharing, including livestreaming on YouTube and Facebook.

In addition to making these cameras available for use, the resort installed steel camera mounts in over 30 different locations all around the property, each chosen to maximize the best angles and picturesque views possible.

“We are proud to be the first fully Garmin-enabled resort in the world,” General Manager René D. Egle said of his latest groundbreaking initiative.

Guests can not only record their favorite holiday moments in high definition, they can also create memorably engaging videos of their own with the VIRB Edit desktop software, accessible through an editing station in the Entertainment Zone.

The easy-to-use program lets guests edit their raw files seamlessly, with varied options for: trimming video; incorporating music and transitions; and adding data overlays to indicate speed, height and distance, giving each video clip a high-quality finish and the slick appeal of professional design. Trained resort recreation staff are on hand to guide first-time users.

“We cannot think of a better partner than Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort and Spa,” said Ryan Tan, president of Garmin Philippines. “The resort has so much to offer, mirroring Garmin’s wide range of multi-sport and adventure products that enable guests to capture priceless moments during their stay.”

In fact, the latest products in the Garmin Watch Collection, revealed during the launch of the partnership, integrate seamlessly with the activities within the resort: the Fenix 5 Plus, a multi-sport adventure watch; the Garmin Descent, the first and only dive watch equipped with GPS and complete multi-sport features; the vivoactive 3 Music, a lifestyle wellness smartwatch with built-in music and all-day stress tracking; the vivomove HR, a fashionable hybrid wellness smartwatch with the same all-day stress tracking feature; and the Approach S60, a full-color golf watch that integrates critical information and maps of over 40,000 golf course worldwide.

Lastly, to encourage guests to showcase their personal creativity and share their content on social platforms, the resort is launching the “Shangri-La Mactan Stories Awards”, a year-round competition in three categories: Inspirational, Action and Out of the Box.

Winners will be selected from all videos uploaded online with the resort’s geotag and #ShangriLaMactanxGarmin. Attractive prizes include stays at Shangri-La properties in three spectacular destinations – Tokyo, Paris and the Maldives – including roundtrip airfare on a premium carrier, as well as luxe island holidays at the resort itself and Garmin cameras.
