Banana Beach Resort : Tagum City’s Piece of Paradise

Last weekend, I was lucky enough to join Davao Blogger Society’s visit to Hijo Estates in Tagum City, Davao del Norte, where Banana Beach Resort is located. I’ve heard nice things about this exclusive resort tucked in a quiet corner of Tagum City. My expectations were not failed.

The resort used to be a part of a 2000+ hectares of  banana and coconut plantation, until recently, the family owners saw the land’s potential for Tourism.

What’s unique about this resort community is how well the designers preserved the existing plantation landscape as it is. It was architecture that adapted to the existing contours of the land, and not the other way around, which is very admirable. The resort is actually just a small patch of development situated at the beachfront, surrounded by the existing hectares green filtering all the city noise away. As part of their amenities,the resort reserved hectares of untouched land, for guests to enjoy leisurely canopy walks up the lush forest.

Calm , quiet, exclusive  ! Thats how I see Banana Beach Resort in mind.
