Location: Babak, Island Garden City of Samal, Davao Province
Entrance fee in the restaurant is free as long as you will order food!

After spending lunch at the GAP farm, we're off to Precious Garden resort in Samal. We rode a jeep from Maa going to Magsaysay to catch a bus ride for Samal Island. The ride took more than an hour. The bus will travel to the island via barge, don't worry it's not scary, you just have to sit comfortably at the bus and just look around and enjoy the scenery. Most of the time, sea water that divides between Davao City and Samal Island is very calm and no big waves to worry.

Precious Garden can be reached through a tricycle ride from the city road where buses passed, fare is only Php10.00. 

 The garden restaurant

Honestly, I love this resort. So relaxing!! The beautiful landscape, the tranquil environment and the food, everything was fascinating! The atmosphere of the restaurant is ultra comforting, felt like I was in Italy!! Precious Garden originally is a restaurant until the owner decided to convert it to the resort, developing the surrounding to create a tropical atmosphere in a European setting, sooooo spectacular! Its pizza recipes are worth trying.
At Precious Garden and because I was extremely tired, I looked so irritated here hehe!

It has a two-story hotel within the garden for visitors who may want to stay overnight, the rooms are directly facing the neatly-trimmed landscape of tropical plants and flowers. The structure of the hotel is so romantic because all its rooms have verandas where visitors can relax overlooking the garden and the beach side.

The pre-nuptial photo shoot went through successfully as we planned and we enjoyed the rest of the day in the garden. We ordered pizza and after resting for a while we moved to the beach side to watch the romantic sunset. Its beach resort is just a walking distance from the restaurant.

We went back to Davao at 6:00 pm.
