Dive Into the Blue in Davao Oriental
Ida Damo | Apr 29, 2014
Mati City in Davao Oriental is bustling with developments and movements. Its Dahican Beach (see related article here) has produced a skimboarding champion, is a sanctuary for marine species, and is a haven for beach combers.
The nearby Islands of Waniban and Pujada have been a source of joy for people who want serenity and oneness with nature. Read our related article here.
Helping Mati City accommodate the influx of tourists and locals is the Blue Bless Resort, located in Brgy. Bobon.
Blue Bless affords a stunning view of the clear blue waters of Pujada Bay. You can lounge at their restaurant and savor their food while taking in the view, or you can laze at their cottages on stilts and just gaze at the changing hues of blue. Of course, you can also take a dip, swim, or dive!
Across the restaurant, a swimming pool overlooking Pujada Bay is nearing completion. Once done, you can have the option of swimming in salt or fresh water.
Just be careful that you won’t get jolted by people singing their hearts out on the videoke. They sure can create a ruckus with their out-of-tune voices (not that our voices are perfect, though!).
Even with the noise, Blue Bless offers the comforts of a home away from home.
