Right at the foot of Mt. Talomo in Davao City’s Toril District is an 80 hectares of man-made nature park that for years has been providing a cool relief from the city’s busy urban life – the Eden Nature Park and Resort.

Shortly called as Eden, the mountain resort offers various attractions, activities, adventures and even food experience. At 2,650 feet above sea level, it also offers the best view of Davao City.
Commune with nature with their vast gardens of organic vegetables, various tropical flora, thousands of pine trees and other plants while enjoying the temperate climate and fresh forest air. For first timers, a tour is a must to see the The Amphitheater, Lola’s Garden, Flower Garden, Plaza Maria, Mayumi’s Well and other spots around.

Experience adventure  as you trek down their Mountain Trail, camp in their grounds, try rope gliding in their Indiana Jones, play and move in their grounds or zip to their 200-meters zip line tagged as Sky Rider.

Indulge with their delectable menus that are mostly made from natural fresh raw ingredients harvested in their own backyard and carefully prepared to suit everyone’s delicate taste. Don’t miss the green salad in a sun-dried tomato dressing, my personal favorite.

Take a peek at the lives and cultures of our Mindanaoan ancestors with the walk to Tinubdan or enjoy their other facilities which include swimming pools, playgrounds, cottages, souvenir shops, function areas and business center equipped with wi-fi.

True to their tagline, “a respite, an adventure, a spiritual retreat, a cultural excursion and a sensuous feast” await everyone at Eden!
