Blast from the past: Pearl Farm



I mentioned before that my husband will be having a series of business trip this March and as of this writing he is in Davao. Few weeks ago, he asked me if I want to join his Davao trip so we could spend our weekend in Samal Island but I declined because the airfare ticket is so expensive, knowing me I only book flight if there’s a seat sale. I find it impractical for a weekend getaway especially that we’re saving for my son’s tuition this school year. But deep inside I really want to join his trip, spell T-R-A-V-E-L…=)



And because I turned down the invitation, I will just reminisce our past Davao trip and dream that I will visit Pearl Farm again. Almost six years ago (tagal na) we went to Davao, we’re supposed to book Kalibo but there’s no more seat sale, so we tried Tagbilaran and again no more seat sale. We’re losing hope already then the CS rep informed us that they still have promo fare for Davao so we booked.
 


Honestly, we have no idea about Davao and I’ve never been in Mindanao so I just search and search for possible tourist destinations. My friend suggested to spend a night in Pearl Farm but I told her it’s too expensive, P9,000 (P4,500 per pax) for one night but she really insisted that I include this so I gave in. The rate is quite pricey but it is all worth it because of the superb service, food and place. The package includes the roundtrip boat transfer, 3 buffet meals and complimentary use of facilities and amenities. The trip is really memorable for all of us and I am still looking forward to go back.

On our second day, we woke up early because we need to be at the Pearl Farm Marina before 8AM. We just took a cab to reach the port. Port pa lang naexcite na kami, why not? Pearl Farm is a luxury resort in Davao so for sure we will have a great stay.

port pa lang, may pool na. =)

  7. The price is a bit steep but judging from your pictures, it is worth it! :D It looks like you guys had fun and the wonderful memories you had in Pearl Farm was worth the price. :) I hope I can also go to Mindanao in the future. Haven't been there yet. I'm definitely inspired by your post to save up for a Pearl Farm vacation. ^___^
