Planning A Samal Island Trip? Make The Most Out Of It With This 5-Star Hotel Resort

Discovery Samal welcomes its guests with “opulence, exclusivity, and indulgence”

Being an archipelago has made the Philippines one of the go-to destinations across the globe. This fact cannot be truer with the beauty of its coastal areas, such Boracay Island, Siargao, La Union, and Palawan that continue to captivate bone-weary travelers. 

While some go for the more mainstream ones, others find just as much comfort and relaxation in the lesser-known destinations—one of which is the virgin Island Garden City of Samal in Davao.

Why Samal? 

Equally serene in its own sense, Samal levels its name with an experience uniquely crafted by scenic views, long and white shores, historical sites, gastronomic delights, and cozy accommodations that vacationers may enjoy only on the island.

More so, vacationers may maximize their island experience with a relaxing stay at Discovery Samal—a recently opened 5-star resort and hotel that prides itself on having “exceptional amenities and the largest convention facilities in Mindanao.” 

Discovery Samal finally opened its doors on July 21, 2023, warmly welcoming its guests with “opulence, exclusivity, and indulgence.” 

Nestled in the middle of grace, grandeur, and greeneries are Discovery Samal’s 128 hotel suites, 15 executive suites, and one Grand Signature suite that all overlook the Davao Gulf.

Villas, on the other hand, all boast “top-notch amenities,” such as private balconies, personal yard, and their own dipping pools. 

Culinary delights at the resort vary and option-wise—“unmatched revelry” as the resort proudly calls it. Sumptuous food from sunrise to sunset is brought by a good selection of food places including Morning Catch, The Shoreline, and Garden City Cafe. 

Just when the sun tucks itself behind the horizon is clearly the perfect time to cozy oneself with “masterfully handcrafted cocktails, premium spirits, and fine wines” from Haribar Lounge. 

Where saltwater meets freshwater 

According to the resort, what sets it apart from other accommodations are its “expansive infinity pools and a beach area.” More so, it holds its stretching coastline as haven of fun and leisure—having been considered as the longest in the whole of Samal.

Just as much, any age can make the most out of their stay, since its pools are landscaped by depth, so much so that kids may still get the best experience and parents may worry less about the dangers. 

Business and vacation in one 

Standing within the vicinity of relaxation are convention facilities for corporate events, conferences, and celebrations. These state-of-the-art facilities are all available to accommodate businesses and large-group gatherings without spolinig the fun—just adequate addition to a warm ambiance that Discovery Samal exudes. 

If one happens to be in search of a quiet destination far from the city’s blinding lights and hustle, then a week spent at Discovery Samal may do the soul good.
