The Oriental Leyte will give you easy access to Samar’s San Juan by the Bay Boardwalk and Floating Restaurant. A 15-minute scenic walk on a bamboo bridge will take you to the floating restaurant where, beyond a unique dining experience, you can enjoy activities like kayaking and swimming.
Have a dose of sand, sea, and sun just two hours away from the hotel. Untouched by popularity, Kalanggaman Island retains its beauty as officials only allow a maximum of 500 tourists a day. When you visit, enjoy beach camping or walking on its stunning sand bar.
Themed with Asian and Filipino motifs, it offers Oriental and international cuisine, evening fire dance and entertainment shows, barrio fiesta dinners, tour services around Leyte and Samar provinces, as well as butler service on demand.
