Enclaved by the Davao region, is an unspoiled island that promises and delivers breathtaking experiences through its magnificence stemming from the natural gift of its rich biodiversity. The Island Garden City of Samal is the utopia for hideaways, thrills, R&R, and pure voyage—soon-to-be embellished by a massive resort that is set to elevate its tourism, Discovery Samal.

First encounters speak a lot, and this island will leave travelers impressed and in awe with the thousands of species that flourish in their own habitats. It prides itself to be the home ground of diverse parks and sanctuaries that help this wildlife develop—hundreds of hectares of protected sanctuaries.

Discover the secrets of nature narrated through the journeys along the pathways of Samal Island. Diverse activities around the island await the most adventurous to the most relaxed travelers. Immerse in the picturesque greenery hiking through the top of the mountain ridges, water flows through the island’s falls. Explore the vast depths of the island’s 70 caves for spelunking. Get a glimpse of the fruit bat colony with an estimated 2.6 million at the Guiness World Record Holder, Monfort Bat Cave. Another attraction to add to the list is the Sanipaan Shoal, a sandbar known as the Vanishing Island.

The Future

While the island prides itself on its rustic features, it aims to urbanize through the modern developments that will elevate its eco-tourism. And the coming times are going to be monumental for the island, with the opening of the massive Discovery Samal, ushering in a plethora of exceptional experiences for innovating travelers, set to open in mid-2023.

Situated on land, with an approximate area of 5 hectares, Discovery Samal features 162 lavish villas and plush accommodations, four intimate meeting rooms, and one opulent convention center that can accommodate up to 1,000 guests. It promises profound experiences for business and leisure, combining idyllic settings, refined comfort, convenience and connectivity, and the genuine culture of care the Discovery Hospitality brand is known for.

Inspire the stay with a collection of facilities perfect for vacationers and recreation seekers—watersports, two grand pools with breathtaking views, and wellness centers.

Discovery Samal takes the world's flavors in its food and dining outlets featuring both international flair and local mastery: all-day dining, a seafood specialty restaurant, a steakhouse, and a bar and lounge perfect for gazing through the tranquil waters with a cocktail or two.
