If you want a quiet and relaxed vacation, I'd recommend that you go to Paradise Island Park and Beach Resort located in Samal Island, Davao. It is only 5 minutes away from Sasa port where you can board a ferry boat courtesy of the resort. With an aviary and a playground for your afternoon walk, it also offers variety of water activities and other recreational games to entertain yourself or your group.
But what I really liked about the place was where the cottages were located. For a nature-lover person like me, I greatly appreciated that our room was surrounded by trees, plants and flowers. Though, it was a bit far from the beach, I didn't mind a little exercise. The cottage itself was like a mini-house with its own gate and garden. I loved having my morning coffee in the terrace while engulfing myself to the serenity of the nature around me.
