Spending some good time in a beach or any resorts with the whole family — including those extended ones, is an exciting thing to look forward to especially during special events like New Year — January 1.
This was actually what our family has decided to do on the earliest hour of January 1, 2012 after having our New Year celebration at home in Trento, Agusan del Sur — Dinampo Residence. At around 7 o’clock in the morning, we departed home going to D’Leonor Hotel Inland Resort in Davao City. It only took us less than 2 hours to travel since the road was very clear — free from running vehicle because it was New Year.
D’Leonor Hotel Inland Resort
The D’Leonor Inland Hotel Resort is located at Cabanti-an, Buhangin, Davao City.
In the image above are my brother (in brown shirt) and my cousin going inside the main resort entrance gate.
D’Leonor Hotel Inland Resort Service Van
The D’Leonor Inland Hotel Resort is a very wide-range area which needs one to utilize their service van from the main entrance gate going to the entrance gate of the wave pool. That service van shown above was the one which fetched and dropped us at the gate of the wave pool.
D’Leonor Hotel Inland Resort — Wave pool Entrance
I and Didang, as shown above, at the beautifully landscaped entrance isle going to the wave pool.
The entrance fee to the wave pool is 250 PhP for the adult while for the kids, it costs 150 PhP.
D’Leonor Hotel Inland Resort — Pink Cottages
I am not really sure how many cottages does D’leonor Hotel Inland Resort have but what I am pretty sure is that the resort can cater more or less 300 people, if I am not mistaken.
D’Leonor Hotel Inland Resort — Wave pool
The D’Leonor Hotel Inland Resort Wave pool utilizes an artificial wave-maker that cause the water inside the pool to be wavy like the natural waves of the seas and oceans. Unlike the natural continuous waves, the waves in this wave pool only occurs every after 30 minutes.
D’Leonor Hotel Inland Resort — Raging River
Aside from the wave pool, the pool has its raging river surrounding it. At first glance, one can notice no raging water, but when tried dipping into the river, it really does.
Allow me to prolong your agony while I’m sharing our funny enjoyable experience at D’Leonor Hotel Inland Resort in Davao City. Stay tuned with my upcoming posts.

As I see the long blue water, I first thought, that it was a long pool. But according to your caption, it’s a river. Wow, a bluish water of a river? D-Leonor Hotel Inland Resort in Davao is one of the nicest resorts in Mindanao, I think!
Sarap pumunta jan pag walang masyadong tao ano. Malapit na ang summer, malamang by then siksikan na 🙂
