|Sabin Resort Hotel|
|Our de luxe room|
Sabin Resort Hotel has 60 spacious airconditioned rooms with cable TV and private bath, some with verandas facing the pool and the sea (superior, de luxe, premiere, executive suite and presidential suite). It has a unique, huge and ectomorphic swimming pool with its sunken poolside bar at the center accessed by a bridge. The pool is well lit at night.
The resort's private beach, along Ormoc Bay, has waters were so clear you could see your toes underneath. An added spectacle was the magnificent sunset also best seen from a view deck beside the resort. From here you could also see the city's port (a 5-min. drive from the resort) with Hotel Don Felipe prominent in the background.
|The resort's unique pool|
Its Mario's Restaurant serves Spanish and Filipino cuisine and also has a nightly live band. The third floor Club Andone, on the other hand, serves fine wines. For conferences, conventions or small group gatherings, the resort has the 400-500-pax grand ballroom (Rose), the 100-150-pax Garvie Hall and two 30-50-pax conference rooms. Arch. Roy Perez help conceptualize the design of the hotel while Cebuano Doro Barandino did the interiors.
