Sambag HideAway Beach Resort is located in 3 kilometers away from the bus terminal and market in Moalboal Town proper. We are very accessible, yet maintain a feeling of a remote paradise. With private steps leading down the cliff side directly to the ocean and a private beach – it truly is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. The location is ideal for people who like to relax, unwind and recharge. Our holiday chalets (bungalows) were built 2012 and 2015 with a balance of local island aesthetic and western standard and comforts. We have since built a cottage that provides a room-only option (with AC). The large area of the property and its open surroundings are ideal for relaxation; it overlooks the emerald waters of the ocean and provides a panoramic view of the mountains of South Cebu.
A short 30 second walk (or less) from our accommodations you’ll find a cliff towards the sea. This location is a dream come true for people who enjoy swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. Our house reef is teeming with colourful fish swimming amongst healthy coral gardens. Without even dipping your toe in the waters, you can easily spot the many turtles that call this bay their home as they pop their heads out for a breath of air. Relaxing in one of our hammocks, you can forget about routines and let your stresses melt away as the light breeze off the water keeps you comfortable. Once you’ve had enough sun, head under the palm-leaf covered outdoor eating area and enjoy the same view from a shady spot. With a frosty beverage by your side and some excellent local delicacies, your next questions may well be ‘how long can I extend my stay?’.
Why Moalboal & why Sambag?
With so many destinations vying for your vacation money, why choose Moalboal? Aside from the world-renowned sardine run and amazing ocean activities (world-class snorkeling, diving, island-hopping, swimming, sun-worship, etc), we have beautiful hiking, incredible waterfalls and breath-taking views from the mountain peaks. If you’re interested in the culture, the Filipino hospitality and kindness will be your guide to accommodating just about any curiosity. The local delicacies are a mix of flavours that have a slight undercurrent of Spanish cuisine (a tasty leftover from the colonial era) and use fresh, regional ingredients. When your hunger for adventure is satisfied and you’re looking to relax, why not enjoy one of the local spas for a recharging massage. With so many options, you’ll be spoiled for choice.
Sambag HideAway is your perfect base from which to enjoy all of these adventures and more. The busy Panagsama Beach is certainly one of the highlights for its snorkeling or diving with the spectacular sardines or the lure of its many restaurants, but when you want to get away from the crowds, the Tonggo area where our property is located gives you an even better view in a much more private and pristine setting. Once you arrive you’ll soon see for yourself what has so many of our guests coming back year after year. Sambag HideAway Beach Resort – your private paradise awaits…
