Whenever I think of Davao, the first thing that comes to my mind is Pearl Farm haha durian is next. Anyway,my husband and I were not used to stay at any luxurious resorts or hotels when traveling. But Davao trip for me will not be complete without visiting the famous Pearl Farm Resort. So then i started looking for deals online that i can possibly book. Unfortunately, all of them were already closed/unavailable and others were not within our schedule. Good thing I emailed Pearl Farm directly and asked for their rates during September. Hola! “Lean season” was the magic word. We paid 6,900.00 for an overnight stay in Samal house. This includes buffer breakfast for 2.

On our first day we stayed at North Zen Hotel which happen to be just few minutes away from Marina Wharf where the port to Pearl Farm is located.

We arrived at the port at 7:00AM and the earliest trip to the resort is at 8:00 AM. Better be early or wait for the next trip or pay the special boat transfer (P7,000.00)



0800H / 1330H/ 1600H / 1800H


0645H / 1000H /1300H / 1600H

The Samal Suite rooms are two-storey Muslim inspired cottages. The suites are named and decorated according to the different Mindanao tribes such as the Tausug, Yakan, T’boli, Bagobo, B’laan and Maguindanao.

The Samal Houses are built on stilts on the water. They are patterned after the houses of the Samal tribe of Mindanao, who are seafarers. All rooms are air-conditioned, with separate toilet & bath, coffee & tea facilities, safety deposit boxes, hairdryer and cabled televisions. All rooms have balconies where you can see schools of tropical fishes. The rooms are beautifully appointed with the bright colors of pink, yellow and blue of the Samal tribe.

The Mandaya Houses are located near the game room, equipped with board games, Chess table, Billiard and Mahjong sets and the mini gym. All rooms are air-conditioned with mini-bar, coffee & tea facilities, hairdryer, safety deposit boxes and cable television. The rooms are spacious enough that it can accommodate a third person. It also has a spacious dressing area. A small pocket garden is located at the back of each room. All rooms are adjoining or two rooms are joined to form one house.

The Balay Houses (two buildings) are located on the hillside. All rooms are furnished with native materials and décor. The rooms are air-conditioned, equipped with mini-bar facilities, hot & cold shower, cable television and telephone. All rooms have a garden view and most rooms have a panoramic view of the sea from the verandas.

The famous Pearl Farm Parola and infinity pool were under construction during our visit.

Our trip will never be complete without our DIY Photoshoot :D

Since the restaurant is also under renovation they built this temporarily.

Buffet Lunch at P1100 per person. We we’re not able to take photo of all the food because we were sooo hungry haha. I can say that the buffet was worth it! But we opted to eat ala carte on dinner (which is by the way is also expensive) haha Needed to save money for the next day trip. :p

Boat to Malipano Island. The boat transfers guests from Pearl Farm to Malipano every 30 mins.

Free buffet breakfast. The best breakfast buffet!

And we have to say goodbye! The best part of our stay in Pearl Farm was the warm and friendly staffs who never fails to greet us and make sure we are enjoying.
