About Us

Welcome to the Granada beach house, a secluded 8 bedroom rustic property set on a peninsula point with a 180-degree ocean view. Located 100kms south of Cebu City and only 20mins from Oslob, home of the great Whale Sharks (Butanding); on the island of Cebu, in The Philippines.

Escape the city for a taste of paradise. Relax by the swimming pool or enjoy the small private beach, peppered with coconut trees, hammocks and native umbrellas; with a coral shore to break the ocean waves. Snorkel around the bay and discover the colorful marine life, or scuba dive our house reef and explore the 100ft coral wall drop off.

Jacques and Keira took over the management of the beach house in September 2013. The South African / Irish couple has a hands-on approach at the hotel and together with their friendly Filipino team, provide a warm and personalized service to all their guests.

Restaurant & Bar

The Braai Bistro

The bistro is named after the braai (South African barbecue grill) on which our premium cuts of meat & fresh fish are cooked to perfection. Our menus feature international cuisine with a few modern Filipino dishes; all prepared with local ingredients.

The bistro overlooks our private beach with a postcard view of the mountains and the ocean, the perfect place to enjoy some good quality home-cooked food. But don’t take our word for it; check out our Trip Advisor reviews to hear how yummy our food is!

Braai Bistro Sample Menu's

Please note: only food and drinks purchased from the hotel permitted.

The Pool Bar

Can we get you an ice-cold beer or a taste-tingling cocktail? The bar is perfectly positioned between the bistro and pool and overlooking the beach, so you’ll always have a cold drink in your hand. And the great craic (Irish for good conversation) is free of charge!

Hotel Facilities

 

Private Beach

Hammocks slung under the coconut trees and Native umbrellas providing shade, lure our guests to relax on the private beach; while the more adventurous can play volleyball or snorkel around the bay. We have a beautiful house reef on our shore, over 100ft deep; its the perfect location to scuba dive and explore the colourful marine life - look out for our resident turtles! 

Swimming Pool

The 12-meter rectangular pool is the main feature of the hotel, with spectacular views looking out to the ocean. Guests can also enjoy the smaller pool hidden by palm trees on the cliff point.

Scuba-diving & snorkelling

In front of the hotel is a coral reef, over 100ft deep. The ocean is perfect for diving and snorkelling all year round; we can arrange shore dives or day trips on a boat, launching from our beach.

Things to See & Do

Swim with the Whale Sharks

Oslob, only 20mins south of the Beach house, is the year-round feeding sanctuary of the Whale Sharks (Butanding in the local language). Local fishermen feed the whales daily from 6am-12pm (no need to book in advance). You can watch and take photos from a boat or snorkel /swim with the gentle giants; it's sure to be the highlight of a memorable holiday in paradise. 

Tumalog Waterfalls

Tumalog waterfalls, close to the Whale Shark in Oslob, is a sight of natural beauty and one of the highest waterfalls in the Philippines. The water cascades down natural rock formations into an aqua green whirlpool, shaded by extremely large bamboo trees - it's refreshingly cold. Stone pathways and bamboo railings provide access to this beautiful sight. Pictures only tell half the story, it must be seen with your own eyes!

Tricycle Tours

Visit nearby villages for a taste of the local culture. Hike into the mountains, discover the waterfalls; or just enjoy a scenic drive along the coast.

Scuba Diving and Snorkeling

The waters of the Philippines, located in the Coral Triangle, are alive with rich marine biodiversity. We have a beautiful house reef from our private beach, the coral wall drop-off is over 100ft deep.

We have a partnership with a Padi certified Dive Master from Belgium, located only 1km away from the hotel; he can teach you the basics for a fun dive; or for more experienced divers, be a Guide to explore the coral reefs.

 

 Cebu Island 

Cebu is a wonderful holiday destination accessible through many international flights. The capital, Cebu City, is the oldest city in the Philippines and the very first Spanish settlement, dating back to the 16th century. Colonial-era architecture, modern buildings, cool mountain tops and sunny beaches are all a short drive away.

The rest of the island is famed for its coastline, and indeed the drive south to the Granada Beach House is a scenic one; with glimpses of bustling towns, serene rice fields and sandy palm-dotted shores. The Granada beach house is located 3kms after the town of Boljoon, 100 kms south of Cebu City. The town’s main landmark is the historic 16th century Boljoon church; still used for Sunday service.

A visa upon arrival will be granted for those staying 30 days or less, provided you have an outbound ticket and a passport valid for 6 months from date of entry.
