The Best for Shopping, Dining, Entertainment, Exercising and a lot more that will bring you to a new bonding experience with your Family and Friends. Expect the Boom of this Super mall after the expansion.


It is probably the most sprawling mall in the Philippines with a mall ground area of around 30 hectares & one of the biggest with a Gross Floor Area of around 310,000 sq. m after expansion.

8 Ayala Center Cebu

This mall will be surrounded by iconic towers in the future. The best feature of this mall that makes it iconic is "The Terraces", a beautifully landscaped garden surrounded by shops and restaurants.

Not a boring mall. My favorite area is the terraces where you could be swallowed with the awesome view wherever you turn your head. Indoor or outdoor, this mall is indeed beautiful.

I like the ambiance.

The most beautiful mall indeed. Visit the terraces and you'll never feel that you're in a mall.
