your private paradise awaits

About Sambag HideAway

Only 3km from the center of Moalboal, on beautiful Cebu Island, our unique beach resort is truly a paradise to recharge your senses. Steeped in history, this has long been a meeting place for the local people on their way to the town market. The marker of the Sambag Tree (meaning tamarind tree) was used to help navigate from the coast into town. Nestled under the shade of the sambag’s canopy (the tree is now well over 100 years old), you’ll find the perfect respite from the midday sun. If you’d prefer a beach-front view, a 15 second walk will bring you to the incredible vista that spans from green mountain peaks to the emerald waters teeming with fish and turtles.


Situated in a garden setting, steps away from a private beach, we have five styles of accommodation to suit most tastes. Whatever your preference is, the world of adventure and relaxation awaits at your doorstep.

Special Provisions: In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19), additional safety and sanitation measures are currently in effect at this property. All of the units are designed with guest privacy in mind, making it easy to adhere to social distancing practices.

With a panoramic view of the turquoise ocean waters and the green mountains in the distance, our common dining area is a great place to enjoy your meal. Surrounded by tropical flowers, and covered by a native roof, you’ll enjoy the nature while escaping the hot sun.

Chill-zone Area

When you’ve had your fill of adventure and want a quiet place to relax, our chill-zone with an unimpeded view of the ocean and comfortable hammocks is just the ticket. Enjoy the cooling breeze as you take in the vista and recharge for your next activity.

Private Beach

We know that our guests enjoy their privacy. This is why we are so proud of our private beach, with access directly from our property. Take in the spectacular views, or enjoy the clear, warm waters while swimming or snorkeling.

House Reef

The secluded bay in front of our property is full of healthy coral. Dive in and swim amongst the colourful reef fish, see the many turtles that spend their days in the clear waters, or venture to the deeper ‘drop off’ for a chance to see the majestic whale shark as it cruises by. This place is paradise, so come on in, the ‘pool’ is open!
