Eden Nature Park and Resort in Davao

I've been to Davao numerous times, but it's only last December 2018 when I got the chance to visit the picturesque and adventure-filled Eden Nature Park and Resort.

Eden Nature Park and Resort is dubbed as the Baguio of Davao. It's populated with a lot of pine trees, green landscapes, and seemingly untouched forest grounds. The air in this 80-hectare mountain resort is also refreshingly cool, especially during the Christmas holiday season. I'm not sure, though, if it's still cold in Eden during the summer months.

Eden Nature Park and Resort also has a lot of amenities and adventurous activities lined up for its guests. They have a swimming pool, a fishing village, and a forest trail for hiking, to name a few. They also have a cafe named Cafe Vista, in case you just want to relax over a warm cup of coffee (and a delicious serving of pasta).

For those with extremely daring hearts, you'll be thrilled to play in Eden Resort's playground - the best in Davao, I believe. They have a 95-foot giant swing, a 200-meter bicycle path over a sturdy rope that's 60 feet from the ground, a zipline course, and a lot more! Click here to find out.

Eden Nature Park and Resort offers simple and basic accommodations for small and big groups. They're located in separate areas around the resort. Some are really far from the "mainland" (where the cafe, restaurant, and events place are), so you'll be needing a car (or your athletic body) to reach each destination. If you don't have a car, you may ask for Eden Resort's free shuttle rides whenever you need it. They're also frequently roaming the place, and you may hitch any time.

The room we had was really simple, and looked kind of old. However, this didn't really matter as everything was clean and functional. Our room was also very spacious for 5 pax. It was far from the mainland, which turned out to be a plus, as it gave us a really peaceful and solitary time with the nature surrounding us.

Eden Resort offers abundant servings of food at the Vista Restaurant, where they serve their standard breakfast and dinner buffet. They also have hydroponic greenhouses filled with organic lettuce! If you want to taste it, you're very lucky as they serve these fresh in their restaurants and cafes.

If you happen to be in Davao City, take some time to experience this lovely mountain resort. I believe they accept day tours as well. I was able to experience Eden in December, and I suggest you do too - just don't forget to bring your jackets!

Eden Resort is located in Toril, and about an hour and a half away from the city via car. For more information, visit their website at https://www.edennaturepark.com.ph.
