White-sand beachfront: Spending Holidays at Bluejaz-A A +A
Thursday, December 12, 2013
CHRISTMAS, the happiest season of the year, is just around the corner. So, if you're still planning of where to spend your holidays, why don't you try Bluejaz Beach Resort and Water Park?
"We have prepared some exciting events for everyone here," says Lord Anthony Apique, the acting manager of the resort. "Adults, teenagers, students, and even children will have something to do to make their stay and visit at the resort meaningful and unforgettable."
Last December 6, the ChristMASAYA opened at the Bluejaz Bazaar. At night, the Christmas Tree - a 30-feet tall thing mounted near the shoreline - was lighted up. ts in-house fire dancers did its breath-taking performances. Plus, there was a live performance of Angelique Alcantara, a semi-finalist of the reality television show, "The Voice of the Philippines."
On December 24, the eve of Christmas, the resort has prepared a stunning fireworks display - for almost an hour! - to those who will stay for the night. "That's double of what we did last year!" Apique said. For those who live in Davao City, this is the best time to visit the resort.
Of course, there is still the fire dancers group doing their death-defying stunts. The Jazz-Up Dancers will also be featured to make the event merrier. Santa Claus will appear to bring tidings to children. Games and raffle draws are also in the house.
December 31 is called as "Gabi ng Simula." There are several things to be done on the eve of New Year, among them: a level-up of fire dance show, a special number from Jazz-Up Dancers, and the usual games and raffle draws.
The Naughty Notes Band will perform live. A Flash Back 2013 will also be simulated. To watch for: a floating candle parade for those who want to participate which will be done in the resort's shore line.
The celebration will end with a spectacular fireworks display during the countdown of welcoming the New Year - 2014!
In between these special days, the Bluejaz is offering the Vanishing Island Tour every Sunday afternoon. The pirate ship leaves the resort at 1:00 pm and then visitors will stay at the island for an hour. Travel time is one hour. The capacity of the ship is 64 persons.
Those who visit the resort on weekends can enjoy the live acoustic singing in the afternoon and comical sketches and programs of comedians from Davao City. In the morning, guests can join the Zumba dancing.
Bluejaz is located in Barangay Calicic of Babak district. It operates its own passenger boat service from Davao City (at JP Laurel Boulevard) to the resort and then back. On weekdays, two boats - Christian and Erin (named after the couple's two children) - are ferrying passengers to the resort. On weekends and big event occasions, when there are many passengers, the so-called pirate ship also sails to bring visitors to the resort.
Bluejaz is just about five from the jetty near Maryknoll. "The boat ride is just like taking a jeep from Matina to the downtown area," Apique claimed.
