For tourists who are getting tired of the same old beach resorts, we proudly introduce to you the Malagos Garden Resort. This 12 hectare nature-themed park is Davao’s most popular Nature Friendly Resort to give you a different kind of experience when it comes to accommodations.
The garden resort is beautifully landscaped, with century-old durian trees amongst indigenous Philippine flora and a dazzling assortment of orchids. Step into the marvelously crafted garden with a rare collection of plants, fruit trees and a number of native ornamental plants. The resort is home to the Philippine orchid, the Vanda Sanderiana, or more popularly known as the Waling-Waling by locals which are only found in Davao. Truth is, the Malagos Resort has the only Waling-Waling forest in the world. The garden is also a haven to various indigenous birds and a number of wildlife species.
