Beat the Summer Heat in Seagull Mountain Resort

If you want to escape the extreme heat and the noise of the city without even spending much, why not go to Seagull Mountain Resort in Buda, Marilog District, Davao City. The cold air minus the hustle and bustle of city life is what makes this place a summer getaway for people in Davao.

Seagull Mountain Resort


The Seagull Mountain Resort is located in Buda, approximately a two-hour drive from the city proper of Davao. You can take a bus going to Bukidnon or Cagayan de Oro and tell the driver about your destination. They surely know the resort. You can also drive if you have a car going there. The road is all cemented as well with just few road bumps along the way. Some days, especially on cold and rainy season, the place is filled with fogs, so better be alert while driving up there.


The place is like the “little Baguio” of Davao. It is cold and chilly as well as foggy some of the times. If you are on a date or simply want to be one with nature with your entire families and friends, this is the place to be. Even if it is in summer, always have a scarf or a light sweater with you since the wind is still quite chilly. If you go there during the rainy season, it is a must that you bring a jacket, especially if you want to stay overnight since it will be pretty bleak during night time.


The Seagull Mountain Resort has many amenities for you and your companions to enjoy. There are natural swimming pools and a waterfall for swimming. But please take note that the water is super cold since it came from the mountain. There are some picnic huts for you to spend the day eating and drinking. You can also stay for a few days because they have cottages for you to rest and enjoy the place. But for us, since we just want to check out the place and to escape this “El NiƱo” phenomenon for a few hours, we opted to just have our lunch there.

A big cabin designed house just in front of the resort is where you can find their restaurant. As you enter, you can feel the warm countryside atmosphere. It is decorated with a fake fireplace to add to that cottage like feeling.

The food is superb as well as very cheap. When we went there, quite a few groups of people were eating. Not bad since this place is in the middle of nowhere. We ordered Tinolang Native Na Manok (Chicken soup) as well as Lechon Kawali (Crispy Fried Pork). But the best seller in this place is their Suman at Sekwate (Sticky rice and Hot Chocolate). I really love their suman. It is not an ordinary suman that you can buy in the market. They put rice crispy as well as mascuvado sugar to make it tastier and unique – a must try from Seagull Mountain Resort.

So there you go, if you are in Davao and want to experience a new level of fun and adventure, especially on this very hot summer season, go to Seagull Mountain resort. Have fun!
