The first class city of Leyte, Ormoc City derived its name from an ancient Visayan word that means a very low area. Ormoc City is the center of commerce and culture in the western part of Leyte. When visiting this city and at the end of a very busy day, it would be nice to come home to a hotel where we feel safe and where we can find everything we need for rest and relaxation.

Found in Tacloban City where everything is within reach such as malls, banks and tourist attractions, this Ormoc hotel is a mere hour away from Manila. The former First Lady Imelda Marcos is said to have a hand in the construction of the Sabin Resort in 1979 and even though it closed until 1994, when this Ormoc hotel was reopened it was fully refurbished. The Sabin Resort is nestled on a 6 hectare land that overlooks the San Pedro Bay.
