Lanikai Resort's Infinity Pool

Do you yearn for a quiet and tranquil hiding place? Are you an urban dweller who's already fed up with the chaos and noise of the city? Then you have check out Lanikai Resort, a member of Hijo Estate Resorts. Nestled along the coastline of Barangay Madaum, Tagum City in Davao del Norte, it is just 15 minutes away from the center of the city. It is a private resort where you can enjoy your private and intimate accommodation coupled with good food, relaxing ambiance and a peaceful environment.

Lanikai takes its name from the Hawaiian word, which means "heaven by the sea." A perfect description for a hideaway by the sea that is peaceful, serene, rustic, and captivating. This resort which is situated on a charming ground by the beach is an ideal place for a peaceful vacation. Dominating the resort is a lovely two-storey ancestral house that exudes haciendero lifestyle. It has been renovated and turned into a guest house with eight air-conditioned rooms available for those who want to stay overnight. The house is simply superb and is just beautiful!

There's also an infinity pool at the back side of the resort near the beach. It is so lovely! For art lovers, several works of Kublai Milan are housed inside the Lanikai heritage house.
