The weather may be erratic, but one thing’s for sure, summer is here. It’s evident in the high temperatures in the day and the crowds of people when you go out. Having been cramped up at home for the past two years, I’m sure you’re looking for more fun things to do.
Hit the sauna at Ayo Ayo Cafe
In contrast to the bustling city outside, Ayo Ayo, a cafe, hostel, sauna, and wellness studio all in one, provides a zen retreat. The restaurant takes its name from the Cebuano word ‘Ayo-ayo’, said co-owner Tomohiko Terada.

Travel to Paraiso Tropicale for a break from the city
“Paraiso Tropicale is a private cabin, where people would be able to be one with nature and just escape from urban life,” Francis later tells me of his vision for the space. A true quarantine project, Francis had stumbled upon the property on one of his drives down south and promptly took a leap of faith.

Treat your pets to a spaw day at Koda & Co.
Koda & Co. was born out of “a silly idea of wishing I’d get to spend every single day with him and the rest of our family,” said Shane. When she first started thinking of setting up her business, she saw that local groomers and pet stores were usually traditional. “I wanted to create a space for both paws and pals. After all, we are family,” she recalled.

Plan a summer barbecue with La Carne’s premium meats
Serving Wagyu, Angus, grass-fed beef, and grass-fed lamb, such premium meats used to be available only through upscale restaurants and hotels giving rise to their mission to make those not just more accessible but traceable to source, as well. Having since become the premier premium meat retailer in Abu Dhabi, with an established online platform and delivery network across the United Arab Emirates, La Carne finally opened in Cebu in early 2021 to bring their story to a full circle.
