Lifestyle embarcadero de legazpi raymond recato

Published on January 31st, 2012 | by Legazpi City



Embarcadero de Legazpi is a world-class waterfront lifestyle hub at the Legazpi City harbor, the first of its kind in Southern Luzon.

As Bicol’s premier urban mall, Embarcadero redeems the glory days of the Legazpi City port district, which was once the region’s melting pot of economic activity as Spanish trading galleons used to dock in it. Today, as a Special Economic Zone accredited by the Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA), it is opening doors for new investments—bringing in stores and brands that never found its way to this coastal city before.

As a pioneering investment in the country, it is projected to produce 3,400 jobs to generate a P408 million job wage per annum. Being the only mall that is open even until past midnight, Embarcadero de Legazpi has revitalized the city’s night life. With a beaming search light on top of its shimmering lighthouse and colorful lights reflecting on seawaters, nocturnal partygoers are drawn to this newfound haven where serene nature meets stylish urban living.

More than a venue for shopping, dining, and entertainment, Embarcadero is also home to one-of-a-kind adventure sport, the 350-meter zipline from a lighthouse over the Albay Gulf.

At the heart of this waterfront mall is the Celebration Plaza, a 105 sq. m. event center that can accommodate conventions, social gatherings, beauty pageants, fashion shows, competitions, and other events.

Embarcadero also has a 90-feet high skywalk to give a million peso view of the historical Albay Gulf, the cityscape, and the world-famous Mayon Volcano. It also has a 59 ft. Climbing Wall and a Bungee Trampoline.

Embarcadero also has an affordable classy hotel Ellis Ecotel, themed indoor amusement center “Funtasea Island”, a host of branded specialty boutiques, a Puregold Supermarket, a dental clinic, and an exclusive transportation service for the mall-goers for free. Embarcadero also offers electronic tricycles for rent for a remarkable tour in Legazpi City.

Soon to open at this waterfront mall is a Sutherland BPO, opening its door for employment of approximately 1,000 Bicolanos.

Dining and Shopping

This commercial hub being likened to the Fisherman’s Wharf of San Francisco, California offers a wide range of food choices–from fast food to fine dining. Fast food joints and Cafes include Kitaro Sushi, La Mia Tazza, Mang Inasal, Bigg’s Diner, Gerry’s Grill, Pacific Blue Dive Center and Cafe, Gillian’s Sea Wharf and more! It has recently opened Cisyd Bar Resto Paluto, the first “dampa” style restaurant in the city, located at the mall’s seaside promenade.

True to its concept as a “lifestyle mall” more than a mere “shopping mall”, several shops have opened at Embarcadero including Sandugo, Cinderella, Bratpack, F2M, and ResToeRun. There’s even a premium brands store that offers genuine posh signature bags like Chanel, Gucci, and Hermes that one could only find either in Manila or abroad. The Embarcadero also hosts the city’s first Puregold Supermarket.

Adventures and activities

For adventure-seekers, the mall now offers several activities such as 350-meter zipline from a lighthouse, kart race, and segway. Segways are two-wheeled, self-balancing electric vehicles. The segways at Embarcadero are the first in the country. Other exciting activities include parasailing, Jet Ski, paddle boat, and water jeep. Soon, helicopter rides will be offered for those who want to capture a panoramic view of Mt. Mayon and the Albay Gulf. A modern bowling lane is also guaranteed to provide loads of fun for families and groups of friends.


As a veritable one-stop shop, Embarcadero also offers a marine-themed hotel called Ellis Ecotel. The luxurious yet affordable hotel offers guests the illusion of seafaring while taking in the breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the looming Mayon Volcano.

Health and Relaxation

Embarcadero is also the home of the Suncore Diagnostic Clinic and the Excelsior Spa.

Events and festivities

The mall’s spacious round Celebration Plaza, which is at the heart of the commercial building, is a favorite venue for events. The 1,050-square-meter venue hosted the city’s first international concert featuring balladeer David Pomeranz. In 2010, it hosted the Amazing Race Asia Season 4 Viewing Party celebrating episode 5 which featured Albay as a pit stop of the popular reality TV show.

Embarcadero also hosts nightly events at the Celebration Plaza like band competitions, pageants, dance contents, and boxing tournaments, making it the city’s official entertainment rendezvous for all classes.

    Tama habang pinagaganda sana ang Legaspi samahan na rin ng pagmamalasakit ng mga mamamayan katulong ng mga opisyal ng bayan. Hindi ako taga Legaspi pero yan ang pinaka sentro ng domersyo namin mula pa ng kabataan ko.
    Maraming magagaling sa atin hindi lang siguro natatap. Bilang isang bikolanang ligaw dito sa California gusto kong umuwi at manirahan for good dyan sa Legaspi and spend the “twilight of my life” amidst the nice people of Bikol.
    Kung and Embarcadero ay nagbibigay sa atin ng maipagmamalaking accomplishment then let us all be part owner by maintaining the cleanliness, patronizing it, and be proud of it.
    One thing I want to point out is the suggestion of another friend that we should propagate what we have. Legaspi is a seaside city, therefore, it is expected to have seafoods as part of the main cuisine prevalent in the area. Can we have diners with crabs, shrimps and lobsters as their main “attraction”?
    Thank you very much. I’m so looking forward for a chance to visit the city in the near future.

    i was so overwhelmed to know that Legaspi has finally emerged as one of the top tourist destinations in the Philippines… particularly becoz of Embarcadero’s rise to popularity… last week it was my first time to take a leisurely walk at the boulevard… it was a superb experience being so close to nature – basking in it’s beauty and tranquility… today we came back — with so much disappointment – there were litters everywhere along the seaside – as a concerned citizen i want to reach out to the management of embarcadero to take into consideration this matter seriously…. They should have a strict program regarding the cleanliness surrounding the area so as to maintain it’s beauty and to help protect nature especially Albay Gulf… and most especially sa ating mga kababayan – binigyan tayo ng magandang pasyalan… sna naman pangalagaan natin ito …pairalin natin ang disiplina sa kalinisan… para sa ating lahat naman ito…

  • i think po…kelangan po ung maramihang pagbubukas ng mga boutiques…kasi po kung konti lang ung bumukas na boutique, magsasawa dun ang tao at lalo silang mabobore…kaya magiging negative impression ng tao…

    kinakalawang na nga po pala ung mga bakal ng embarkz dun sa may second floor…sa may dating mini ferris wheel…

    sana po masolusyunan…thanks po…

    ang ganda tlga ng embarcadero.. =)

  • Monz

    Nice! but there’s a lot to work with…Hopefully sana madagdagan ang stalls…I mean kulang kasi ng mga pwedeng bilhan ng RTW’s. just like when you’re going to shopping… dapat madami ka rin pwede pamilian…Saka I heard medyo may kamahalan kapag namili ka sa Embarcadero… and not supposed to be because how can you compete with LCC and Pacific Mall kung same thing lang naman ang makikita mo then mas mataas pa ang presyo.

    Hopefully sana magbukas ang Yellow Cab and Starbucks just like what we have seen on the Perspective!

    Honestly, I’ve known a lot kung bakit may Embarcadero tayo..its a Good work of Mayor Rosal..and i think tama yung ginawa nya..(but not to others, because may problema kapag nalaman ng publiko) promote the tourism aspect in generate jobs for Legazpenos.
