Pearl Farm Beach Resort
The Pearl Farm Beach Resort is particularly famous to those who watch too much showbiz news. Aside from Boracay, it is the most frequently visited resort by the primetime kings and queens, the “teleserye” princes and princesses, the too-opinionated talk show host, the men and women of tv’s most popular variety shows, beauty queens, celebrity models, news casters, even child stars. High profile clientele must mean something. And although I have always wanted to go to Pearl Farm what really convinced me was Jomari Yllana’s alleged cheating on Pops Fernandez in the resort several years back.
The 5-star beach resort located at the secluded and exotic island of Samal was once literally a pearl farm, where thousands of white-lipped oysters from the Sulu Sea were cultivated for their pink, white and gold pearls.
The Pearl Farm offers its guests modern amenities and luxurious accommodations with 73 guestrooms and cottages on stilts floating above the sea that were designed with Maranao and Samal ethnic influences.
LOCATION: Kaputian Island City Garden of Samal, Davao
HOW TO GET THERE: All local airlines have daily flights to Davao, when you get to Francisco Bangoy International Airport in Davao, take a cab and head to the Pearl Farm Marina and from there take a 45 minute boat ride to the resort.
