6 Davao Mountain Resorts That are Perfect Vacation Spots

Davao City is one of the largest cities in the world in terms of land area.  Its 2,444 square kilometers is composed of mountain ranges, hills, rivers, farms, beaches and urban areas.

Mountain resorts abound which can take off the heat during the warm summer days and nights. Here’s a list of the resorts and accommodations where you can fully rest and enjoy the nature. 

1. Eden Nature Park and Resort

Eden may be located an hour away from the center of the city but it has facilities that can make you want to stay longer without missing the “comforts” of the city.

It also has adventure activities like skycycle, skyride and sky swing for those who get easily bored with all the serenity that the resort offers.

Eden also offers the freshest green salads from its gardens and other culinary delights from its kitchen at the Vista Restaurant.

2. Malagos Garden
