Dining by the sea has never looked so appealing!
Villa Isabella Beach Resort, located in Samboan, offers a one-of-a-kind experience of seaside dining. Diners and guests are given a full view of the sleepy waters of Tañon Strait with warm sun and the pleasant salty sea breeze.
Located right by the water in the coast of Samboan, the resort is a perfect place to enjoy brunch or early dinner in the cozy beach atmosphere.
Imagine eating a hearty meal with steamy rice and your favorite side dishes, coupled with a fresh and fruity drink while being surrounded by the song of waves washing into the shore. At the same time a gentle breeze caresses you, carrying the sounds of the rustling leaves of the tropical forest. Now, that makes a meal to remember!
Villa Isabella comes ready to please the palate with a roster of Filipino favorites and an array of tasty refreshments. Their own brewery also serves up a variety of milkteas, fruity frappes, and juices.
Given that the resort is on the coast, it has a private stretch of beach. Granted, it’s not made of sparkling white sand, it’s still a scenic stony beach full of round pebbles polished and smoothened by the sea before ending up on land. What could be more poetic?
And should you wish to explore the waters, paddle and motor boat rentals are available. You’ll be surprised to find that the water is crystal-clear with plenty of aquatic life hiding beneath the waves.
Finally, if you plan on staying past dinner and you’d like to wake up to the waves – and trust us, you’d want to, Villa Isabella Beach Resort also offers private accommodation that’s cozy and affordable.
