The Oriental Leyte possesses a unique character given by its fusion of history, nature, art, and an air of resilience given by its survival of Yolanda, the stongest typhoon to ever hit the island.
I was lucky to have been given the chance to stay it is modern, state-of-the-art rooms and function halls. The staff are accommodating and the food is great. If you’re bothered by price tags, this place is going to give the relaxation you need and the experience of class.
It’s biggest function hall is the Pavillion Tent which can accommodate around 500 pax seated in round tables of 10 pax. In daytime, it has good diffused ambient lighting. At night time, it has to rely on spotlights. It’s a tent so it has no built-in lighting fixtures.
Cassidae is the next biggest one. It can seat around 300 pax seated in rectangular tables of 10 pax seating.
There are other smaller meeting rooms that can seat around 50 pax.
Its restaurant, Samsara, offers a wide variety of Asian fusion cuisine. It’s facing the Red Sea where Gen. Douglas MacArthur staged his most antipated return. A few hundred steps from the hotel stands the memorial for MacArthur’s historic return. It has al fresco seating beside the infinity pool. A bar called Sand Bar also serves grilled burgers and other quick snacks and drinks.
