Sangat Wildlife: Tropical Geko

Robinson Crusoe Cottage

Situated on an isolated 100-meter stretch of white sand beach on the southeastern edge of Sangat, the Robinson Crusoe cottage is the perfect off-resort hideaway for those seeking maximum solitude within an idyllic – and rustic – tropical setting.

From this secluded location, guests can enjoy ample reef snorkeling, shallow-water explorations of the nearby Sangat Gunboat wreck site, or kayaking adventures in and around the Mangrove-edged coastlines of Busuanga and Apo Islands. If you ever feel the need for human interaction, Apo Island and Sangat Island Dive Resort is only a 15 to 30-minute kayak paddle from your front door.

When we say that this location is isolated, we're not joking. Since there are no overland paths to Sangat Island Dive Resort (or anywhere else on the island for that matter) the only way to off this beach is by kayak (one of which will be provided) or by motorboat (which can be arranged from the resort as needed).

Accommodation Features

As with our on-resort accommodations, the Robinson Crusoe Cottage has been constructed according to the durable, time-honored techniques of local native artisans from the finest locally-available materials including hand-woven bamboo wall panels, split-bamboo flooring, and Congon Grass or Nipa Palm roofing.

This special accommodation – perfectly suited for one to three guests – includes one queen-sized bed (one additional bed is available upon request), a kitchen area with a gas-fired cook top, utensils and refrigerator, a tiled western-style toilet and shower room, and a shaded terrace overlooking Sangat channel and Apo Island.

Additional features include overhead ceiling fans, lighting fixtures, solar-powered 220-volt electrical outlets, table and chairs located on the front terrace as well as woven cotton lounge hammocks.

Rental Rates

While accommodation rates for the Robinson Crusoe Cottage will vary due to occupant requirements, rental rates are strictly based upon a minimum 4-week or longer occupancy agreement.

All long-term rental agreements will include food and potable water provisioning services from Sangat Island Dive Resort and one kayak for basic, local transport. Additional requests can also be negotiated.
