Dakak Park Beach Resort, Zamboanga del Norte

Dakak Park Beach Resort, Zamboanga del Norte

Dakak Park Beach Resort is located on the sunny white beach facing the exotic turquoise Sulu Sea. The 750 meter private beach is blanketed with pure powdery white sand. Natural spring water and tumbling waterfalls feed the resort’s two pools, whilst the ultimate hideaway is provided at a private open-air jacuzzi where you can relax in the sauna and whirlpool amidst an atmosphere of blissful solitary refinement.

Dakak is a huge resort, set within a wooded, 15-hectare property. Surprisingly, despite its size, Dakak is well integrated into the natural environment that it fully respects. This environment is quite spectacular—a serene bay fringed by a 750-meter beach with fine, golden sand, encircled by rocks and boulders on one side, and a towering limestone spur on the other. The beach gently pushes into the sea making it ideal for children. You can, in 20 minutes, scale the cliff through a well-marked trail and enjoy the superb view of the beach and the sea.

The bamboo bungalows with nipa roofs are well concealed in the vegetation and from the beach, it is difficult to imagine that a resort of such dimension is hidden there. The bungalows are laid out in tiers from the seafront to the top of the hill and are distributed over different sections— from section A at the rear end of the beach, to the most distant section E.

The last sections, quite high up and far from the beach and the restaurant, are not recommended for elderly people. The bungalows on the seashore are better located, the best being those at the foot of the cliff.

The duplex bungalows are well set apart and soundproof. Each is enclosed by vegetation and has a generally good view. All the rooms are spacious, furnished with every comfort and beautiful bathrooms. The decor is pleasant: nipa wall tapestries, capiz windows and wicker drawing rooms. The private terraces have beautiful planter’s armchairs in wood and a small table.

The resort has several restaurants. The one at the end of the beach is surrounded by a profusion of orchids from the resort’s greenhouse. Breakfast and lunch are always served here, but in the evening, dinner may be taken in any of the other restaurants … depending on the mood of the manager.

Sensitively designed in keeping with the area’s natural surroundings the distinct inventive-style cottages are constructed in traditional bamboo and nipa leaves, and feature marble tiled bathrooms and capiz shell window panes. Individually controlled airconditioners, intercom phones, minibars and TV with in house videos and CNN add the modern touch. Set down by the beach or snuggled among wild orchards of papaya, mango, coconut, banana and grangipani, the entire village follow the natural contours of this vast 15hectare resort. Nothing at Dakak detracts from the inherent harmony surrounding you.

Dakak has three superb swimming pools, one of which is reserved exclusively for children. A pleasant little bar is near the swimming pool close to the sea.

Dakak is a place suitable for families with children. It has a safe beach and a variety of activities are possible within the area—watersports, golf, tennis and horseback riding. An hour away by boat, snorkeling is possible in Aliguay and Sinilog, two islands that belong to the resort.
