Malipano Island

March 02, 2013 2




Malipano is a picturesque island managed by Pearl Farm Beach Resort Management. All guests of Pearl Farm resort have an access to Malipano island. It can be reached through a speedboat ride, approximately 30 minutes, from Pearl Farm.

Peaceful and quiet, Malipano is surrounded with tropical trees and stunning beach side. Going there will cost you nothing because it is part of the accommodation you pay when booking at Pearl Farm provided you will only go there for sight seeing. 

There are exclusive villas in the island directly facing the ocean and a Gazebo nearby. There's a small chapel also not far from the Gazebo.

This beachside is exclusive for Malipano Villa occupants. 
Boat ride from Pearl Farm to Malipano takes only 20-30 minutes

I'd come to visit Malipano last August 2012 with friends, and we really enjoyed the moment we spent together while at this island. 

It has beautiful seaside especially the one facing the open sea, very impressive! With its sparkling blue water, ivory sand and exclusive villas, one can truly expect a wonderful holiday escape experience there.

The villas are so lavish!I only saw the exterior because it was closely guarded by the staff and visitors who are not booked at its villas are not allowed to stay at the beach side fronting the open sea (the one we visited) longer than 30 minutes, in fact we were reprimanded for staying there longer and for resting at the hammock. So we moved back to the Gazebo area and waited for the boat to take us back to Pearl Farm. 

The coconut trees and lush green plants are so refreshing! We were able to do lots of frolicking and jumping around the area. We seated at its neatly-manicured lawn for 30 minutes and just laughed and talked. It was beautiful and I was able to fully relax with my friends.

So many things to do at Malipano :-)

According to Pearl Farm website, there are two types of villas at Malipano: Five villas have 3 bedrooms and two villas have four bedrooms. 

Each villa is air-conditioned and equipped with minibar and coffee/tea facilities, cable television, living room, bathroom and hair dryer. Just like Pearl Farm's suites and rooms, there is a butler service available for food orders and other assistance.

Pearl Farm Beach: Premier Resort in Mindanao

August 26, 2012 2


Entrance to the resort

Pearl Farm is a world-class beach resort located in the island garden city of Samal, North of Davao, travelers can get there through a boat ride from Lizada wharf in Lanang, Davao city. 

The schedule is strictly followed so travelers are advised to be on the wharf approximately 30 minutes before the departure.

Maranaw swimming pool in Pearl Farm


It's one of the most stunning beach resorts in the Davao province where guests are treated to a luxury accommodation. 

The place is fully secured with 24-hour staff service. 

The area is not huge, in fact, it is just situated at the foot of the mountain and along the slim shoreline, but the place has a terrific view of the sea and the amenities are fantastic!

Maranao Swimming Pool
Dinner time!

Its facilities and amenities are truly world class:
  • Aqua sports center
  • Two swimming pools 
  • Ylang-ylang spa
  • Basketball, Volleyball and Tennis courts
  • Game room (billiard, fooze ball, air hockey, board games)
  • Conference room
  • Parola Bar
  • Malipano Gazebo
  • Private suites, houses and villas
  • Mandaya weaving center
  • Butik (souvenir's shop)
  • Restaurant
  • Gym
I was able to join my friends at Pearl Farm last August 22, 2012. Two of them were on their honeymoon so we're like taking into a honeymoon entourage adventure (lol!). 

We stayed at the Samal House where our friend, Joice Lagat, who sponsored our accommodation (except for food), booked three rooms (or house) for us.

The Samal Houses are floating by the sea and quite far from the Parola Wharf and Maranao restaurant but guests can request a shuttle ride to take them back and forth around the resort and to the house. 

The house is similar to a hotel room except that this is built individually for an ultimate privacy.

The only lacking at this house is the wifi connection, so if you want to surf the net please make sure you have a broadband plug-in or else you will be compelled to go to the Maranao restaurant area to avail the wifi connection. But the signal for cellular phone is working well.

We were six plus a child who went there and it was truly a fantastic experience. We enjoyed our stay and each moment was not wasted as there were plenty of fun, laughter and frolicking around the area.

The Samal house has a whooping rate of P10,000 (good only for two) per night!But luckily for us, we were able to get a discount-employee's rate courtesy of Jing Tagaan. 

Pearl Farm beach front

We spent dinner at the resort's restaurant that night where guests can choose either to go ala carte or buffet-eat-all-you-can style, we chose the latter. It has a tag price of P1,100 per person!

This area is exclusive for guests of Malipano villas 


On the following day we're off to Malipano Island with a free boat ride. This island is just on the opposite side of Pearl Farm with exclusive villas. 

This romantic island is surrounded with tropical plants, coconut trees and well-maintained lawn. There's a Gazebo available for booking on special events like conferences, weddings and seminars.
