Gap Farm and Resort Davao

The Gap Farm Memory Lane
Gap Farm and Resort Davao City
Gap Farm and Resort Davao City

When I was a kid, my parents would regularly bring me and my sister to anywhere in the city on Sunday afternoons. Yes, we were kind of rich back then and we can afford a weekly vacation. Now, we’re still rich but we kind of got matured to not spend money on useless things.

 That was a joke, of course. But, the thing about me being brought to many places in Davao City is true. I could still clearly remember what my favourite place was. It was the Gap Farm.

Gap Farm is located at Diversion Road, Ma-a, Davao City. It has a very wide area of green grass and trees and man-made sculptures and infrastructures. Entrance fee of Php 40.00 and Pools Fee is Php 50.00

When we first went there, I was anxious to go as there was a very huge sculpture of a farmer riding a carabao in the entrance part. It scared the hell out of me! I couldn’t remember what my parents did that time. All I could remember was that we were already inside.

Inside, well, it is a farm if I would have to define farm as a large expanse of green land. Like many children, I was already contented when there is a playground. They did have a playground! I was with some of my kid friends with their parents there so we played and played until we ran out of breathe. You can’t blame us, we’re young. You might even be guilty of such.

Another interesting part in the farm is that they have sections there with life-sized sculptures of animals and Filipino mythical creatures. I enjoyed with the animal sculptures. I don’t want to go back to the memory with the mythical creature sculptures.

There was also a pool and it was a big one, not Olympic-sized but enough to make you feel cool on a hot weather.

Our time there was made perfect because of the picnic food we brought. I seriously think that Gap Farm is the perfect place to have a picnic and bond with your family. The location is also perfect because it is a little elevated and the wind is breezy. So, even on a hot summer day, you won’t feel hot because there is wind blowing every now and then.

It took 14 years for me to go back to Gap Farm and while I was expecting that things would change drastically, it did not. Everything pretty much stayed the same. The only difference I noticed was that they already had a functioning restaurant that serves good food.

Gap Farm is most probably the perfect place for family and friends bonding. I think Gap Farm is here to stay. As long as there are families who want to bond, it is here to stay.

Vacation at Pearl Farm Resort Samal Davao

Pearl Farm Resort Samal

If I was given a chance to go back and pick a moment that I can re-play over and over again, I could only think of one thing. I would choose to go over my Pearl Farm Beach Resort experience again and again.
I am not the richest man on Earth. I’m not even rich enough to have Starbucks as my coffee in the morning every day. This is why I considered the time that I went to Pearl Farm a one-of-a-kind experience.

Pearl Farm is probably the most expensive resort in Samal as far as I know. I want to share my experience to you because I know for sure you will be enticed to do the same.

I woke up at dawn not because I was too excited but because I had to leave the house early as the meeting place and the wharf of the boat that would take us to the resort is very far from where I live. It’s almost a 2-hour drive and we were told to be there at 7:30AM.

Even in the wharf, you can already sense the luxury. There was a small house that looked to me like a restaurant. There is also a souvenir shop and a small field where you can wait until your ferry arrives. Within minutes, we were already on the ferry. The travel time was around 40-45 minutes.

When we arrived at their pagoda, we were welcomed with drinks and a short orientation of the rooms and what your payment includes. Basically, you will pay for your room accommodation but it already includes your breakfast, lunch, and dinner and you are free to use majority of the amenities in the resort.

Pearl Farm Resort Samal
They have different rooms with different sizes and prices. We got the cheapest room at around PHP 5,000 per person. When I got in the room, I already swore that I will come back here. The room had three beds complete with pillows and blankets. It is air conditioned, equipped with a cable TV, a mini-refrigerator with snacks and a closet for your clothes. I have this thing with accommodation rooms where I always enter and check the bathroom first. When I did, it was the best bathroom I had seen! It was so spacious that you can even fit one more bed in it. The resort also provides toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, towels and slippers. So, you just worry about bringing your clothes because everything else is provided. I was starting to think that I am getting my money’s worth already.

But, it doesn’t stop there. They have two swimming pools and one of it is an infinity pool facing the sea. You are free to swim in any of the two and in the beach for as long as you want. The only downside is that the pools are really far from our room. Our rooms are located at the top of the hill so you have to go up and down a man-made staircase to get to the pool. It’s also what we have to do when it’s time to eat.

Speaking of eating, I have no words for the food they are serving. The regular meals are scheduled. Our first meal was lunch and then dinner. We had our breakfast the next day. Their food was so delicious. Not only that, it was so variant that it’s hard to choose what to eat. Their meals are in buffet style so you can pretty much have everything you want to eat and go back as many times as you can. Every meal, I was full! Among their menu are cuisines from France, Thailand, Vietnam, and of course, Philippines.
Pearl Farm Resort Samal

Pearl Farm Beach Resort is the perfect place for people like me who wants to relax and not worry about a lot of things even for just a day. Here, you are treated like a monarch. My experience would have been better if I did not have any gadget to distract me there and instead just have a book to read.

The resort also has a Day Tour Package for those who just want to experience a little bit of heaven their and prefer to not spend the night. I think it costs around PHP 1,500.

What are you waiting for? Don’t miss the opportunity of spending this summer in one of the best beach resorts in Samal, the Pearl Farm Beach Resort!

Top 5 Inland Resorts in Davao City

It’s the time of the year again when malls and parks are out and beaches and pools are in. That’s right, it’s summer time! There is no better way to spend the summer but with the refreshing immersion in the cool waters. Now, if you are someone who finds it complicated to cross the sea to another island just to be able to enjoy the summer, you don’t have to worry. There are resorts within the city that gives you the same experience. They are called inland resorts as they are located in the middle of a land. I couldn’t put it any better than that.

To help you decide where to spend the summer time, here’s the Top 5 Inland Resorts in Davao City:

5 – Feliz Resort

Feliz Beach Resort
Located in the heart of the city at Matina Aplaya, Davao City, Feliz Resort gives a simple but unforgettable summer experience. I had been to the resort for the first time recently. During that time, I had no plans of going in the water because I was just going to attend to my godson’s birthday party. But yes, I regretted not bringing clothes. There were a few other people in the pool area that seemed to be really enjoying the swim. I wanted to jump in the pool right then. The pool is quite large and clean. There are also grilling areas around that let you grill meat. The entrance is less than a hundred pesos. It’s really cheap. Contrary to belief, Feliz Resort is actually a peaceful place and you will be able to enjoy the summer without too much noise.

Forest Hill Resort
4 – Forest Hill

Like Feliz Resort, I have been to Forest Hill only once but it was a nice experience. It is located in Bangkal area. The entrance is a hundred pesos but they only charge small corkage for food and drinks you bring. In fact, I think we weren’t charged at all when we were there. As far as I could remember, there are 3 pools. Two pools are for kids and one pool that is deeper for adults. There are cottages surrounding the pool so you are free to choose where to stay. It’s perfect for people who don’t mind a large crowd and would just want to quench the heat brought by the summer sun.

3 – Jones Beach Resort

Jones Beach Resort is located in Talomo area. The entrance to the pool area is a hundred pesos. This comes with a free cottage use. The pool area is also large. It houses two pools; one for kids and one for adults. The good thing about Jones Beach Resort is that if you paid for an entrance fee in the pool area, you are free to use the grilling stations in the beach area and even bathe in the beach. It’s a little crowded here but who cares? We are all for fun and socialization this summer!

2 – Mergrande Beach Resort

Located in Dumoy, Mergrande Beach Resort offers an experience. The whole resort is very large. The entrance is only PHP25 though you have to pay for the cottage separately. But, the cottages aren’t that expensive so you don’t have to worry about spending too much. There is also a separate fee for the pool use. Though the paying scheme might overwhelm you, you will actually get your money’s worth. There are many areas in the resort where you can peacefully bathe in the sun and get a tan. They have a playground, a mini-golf course and a fish pond as well. The pool has also slides so you can have fun.

1 – Eden Nature Park

At the top of the list is Eden Nature Park. This one isn’t like a resort really but more of a nature park with a resort in it. It’s a little expensive but the place is huge. Really huge that you need to ride a cart to be able to see the whole place. The pool area is located at a far end of the place. Here, you can swim all you want. Here’s a plus. Because it is located in an elevated place, the temperature here is slightly cooler even at summer time. It’s a nice break from the uncomfortable heat. There are also activities like zipline, Indiana Jones, hiking and a lot more. You can think of it as an all-in-one package. It’s worth it, right?

So, there. The Top 5 Inland Resorts in Davao City. There are many other inland resorts in the city but I think that these five are actually the best of them.

Top 5 Best Beach Destinations in Samal Island

Best Resort in Samal

Dayang Beach Resort

During the months of March and April, almost everybody would agree that nothing gives us more comfort and refreshment than spending a really hot day at the beach. Luckily, the Philippines is a country full of beaches that one will never be out of choices. So here, I give you the Top 5 Beach Destinations in Samal Island.

Before anything else, let me tell you general information about Samal. Samal is an island in the Davao Region that is a favorite among foreigners and locals. From Davao City, it is accessible through ferry boats and barges. And, it would only take less than an hour to travel across. So, are you ready?

Here is the Top 5 Beach Destinations in Samal Island.

Dayang Beach Resort
Dayang Beach Resort is a resort in Samal Island that offers serenity and privacy. Although it is open to anyone anytime, the location of the resort makes it possible for you to experience peace. Dayang is located at the very far end of the island. You have to travel for almost 2 hours to get here. The resort is able to give you amenities that are costly in other resorts. They have a store where you can buy rice, charcoal, water, and other necessities at a very low price. They also allow grilling. They do not have any corkage so you can bring whatever you want to bring. The only reason why I put this at the last spot on the list is its accessibility. There is only one schedule every week of the ferry from Davao City to the resort. If you miss that, you can still go here but you have to go to another rout and spend more money on fare.

Camp Holiday is where people who would like to have a simple beach day with just food and swimming at a place that is easily accessible. Camp Holiday has a cheap entrance fee. They have grilling stations, a kiddie pool, airconditioned rooms, tent rentals, and small cottages. You will enjoy in this resort if you are for swimming and won’t mind the crowd. There are three reasons why this is only on the 4th spot: (a) they charge high corkage; (b) at times, the crowd gets really too thick and you may not stand the noise; and (c) it gets kind of awkward to swim in their beach and see a ferry approach the dock that is just adjacent the resort.

3 – Isla Reta

Isla Reta Beach Resort
I have been to Isla Reta a couple of times before and from first-hand experience, I must say that this is the perfect resort for people who want to soak in the sun and enjoy the crystal clear water. Isla Reta has almost the same entrance fee rates as Camp Holiday. But unlike most resorts, this one’s a little farther and it would take almost an hour travel. But, the long travel will pay off once you set foot in the powdery white sand of Isla Reta. Like most resorts, you are allowed to grill pork or chicken or any kind. They also have a wide shore where you can play beach games. Their beach is also clean so when you dip yourself here, you wouldn’t want to get out. Isla Reta would have been a perfect resort if only it can give more comfort. They have overnight bunkers but most of them are not aircoinditioned and most faucets give out saltwater so you wouldn’t really get to wash yourself properly.

2 – Bali-Bali
Bali-Bali Beach Resort Samal

This resort deserves its spot. Bali-Bali is just a small resort about 20 minutes away from the city. It has 6 villas where each one can accommodate up to 4 people. During my first time here, I was very much loving the privacy it gave us. Although it isn’t totally private, but because of the limited rooms, you would feel that the whole place is yours. The resort has a medium-sized beach and a wide shore where you can lay yourself under the taning heat of the sun. They also have a narrow but long infinity pool that runs through the six villas. They also allow cooking there so you can cook almost any kind of food you want to eat. And their amenities? Awesome! The rooms are airconditioned with perfectly designed interior art. Some rooms are Asian-inspired while some are Carribean or Mediterranean. Weirdly, the part that I most loved here was their bathroom. It was very spacious and clean. I loved the idea that the bathroom has a small extension with no roof so you get to take a hot or cold shower in the natural light of the sun.

1 – Pearl Farm

Pearl Farm Samal Davao
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think Pearl Farm Beach Resort might be the most expensive resort on the island. Well, you would get your money’s worth anyway. There is nothing bad to say about the resort. From the travel to the resort up until the end of your stay, you are treated with god service and luxury. You would be welcomed with drinks upon your arrival in the resort. You will also not worry about the food as they are part of what you paid for. The meals include breakfast, lunch and dinner. And, I must say that you will surely have your stomach full with their delicious variety of food offered each meal. You also have a lot of choices when it comes to swimming. They have a really wide beach and two swimming pools. Their rooms are also first-class, the amenities are complete.

So, there you have it. I hope I have given you a variety of choices. I hope that this made you decide where you would go this summer. Have fun!
