A German national with a passion for diving decided to settle in Cebu’s Panagsama Beach. Her name was Hannah and she taught diving at the Seaquest Dive Center in Moalboal. In 1983, she opened a restaurant, which she named after her — Hannah’s Place. Because of the restaurant’s success, Hannah was inspired to build a house near her restaurant.
In 1997, Hannah decided to convert her house into a place where visitors can stay when they visit the area. She named it Hannah’s Lodge.
Regular rates for an overnight stay at a Deluxe Room at Hannah’s Lodge is $56.82 (or Php2,500). The Standard Room is at $45.45 (or Php2,000) per night. Accommodations include breakfast. Full board accommodations cost an additional $25 per person. All rooms are air-conditioned. Other room amenities include a mini bar and hot and cold shower. Rates for walk-in’s, last-minute and special arrangements are available upon arrival at the lodge.
For those who wish to enjoy the Moalboal diving experience, they can rent scuba diving equipment at Hannah’s. PADI Courses are also offered for interested divers.
If you are travelling by air from Manila, daily flights that fly the Manila-Cebu approximately 75 minutes each are served by a number of airline carriers, including PAL, Cebu Pacific, Air Philippines, and Asian Spirit. From the Mactan International Airport to the resort, it is a 3-hour trip on a private car. There are two possible routes: through Carcar and Barili, and through the Transcentral Highway which starts at Nivel Hills going to Busay Hills then to the mountain roads of Taptap, Sibugay and Catimpla.
Hannah’s Place is located at the extreme north of Panagsama Beach, in Moalboal, Cebu. For inquiries, you can call (032) 474-0091 or (032) 346-0592.
