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.
