There are a lot of ways to describe the Pearl Farm Beach Resort. Mesmerizing, captivating, beautiful, stunning, and enigmatic are just some of the few perfect adjectives you can use when talking about it. But what really makes this resort vibrant and unique? What makes this place deserving to be called the “paradise on earth”?
The first thing one would notice upon arriving at the Pearl Farm Beach Resort would be the copacetic state of everything - from nature to food, to people. The water looks untouched, and its surroundings are filled with countless trees and towering plants. Also, upon docking, guests are greeted with welcome drinks and music from a kulintang, an ancient instrumental form of music composed on a row of small, horizontally-laid gongs accompanied by larger, suspended gongs and drums.
Guests in Pearl Farm Beach Resort usually marvel at the crystal-clear turquoise waters, watching numerous fishes feed on chunks of planktons or bread thrown by other guests and personnel. The presence of a three-tiered parola provides a wandering soul a chance to see the panoramic view of the prestigious island and a glimpse of the 14-hectare luxurious hideaway. This parola was formerly used as a lookout spot for ancient mariners so they can keep an eye out over the coastline for strangers and potential intruders. Today, it simply is a place for relaxation and a magnificent way to have an unobstructed view of the boundless sea.

The beds and sheets are comfy, and the interior of each room is a mix of colors appropriate for a gist of tropical life. The view of the ocean from the glassed windows is impressive. It would be perfect to open the shutters and have an open-air room to let the breeze come in while staring at the Mt. Apo’s vast formation made placid by the calm waters of Davao Gulf. Seeing the sun rises and sets from the comfort of your bed is also quite marvelous.
Pearl Farm Beach Resort also has villas intended for larger groups. People who prefer traveling in large numbers may choose to stay at the Malipano Villa that contains four good-sized bedrooms.
