Pearl Farm now attracts corporate clients
Pearl Farm Beach Resort, a world-class tourism destination in the Island Garden City of Samal in Davao, has put up new investments to accommodate corporate gatherings and other large events.
Juan Rocha, an executive of Fuego Hotels and Properties Management Corp., which manages the Florendo-owned Pearl Farm, said new investments have recently been made to enable the resort to host corporate meetings and large events such as weddings.
"We are positioning it as a place for corporate functions, seminars and large events," he said.
Rocha, who is also the general manager at Pearl Farm, said the resort has three function rooms and boardrooms with excellent facilities and equipments that can seat up to 70 persons.
Rocha cited as an example the recent corporate meeting held by executives of food company CDO-Foodsphere Inc. at Pearl Farm on February 9 to 11.
CDO-Foodsphere assistant vice president and general manager Marites Escarcha said 37 executives of the company conducted its planning and team building sessions at the resort, where they participated in an exchange of ideas on how to further grow the business.
"The villas are well-maintained, the food is great, and the service is superb," Escarcha said of their stay at Pearl Farm.
Rocha said that aside from corporate meetings, Pearl Farm has been the favorite destination of couples spending their honeymoon, family members on vacation, and individual tourists taking a time off from their hectic schedule.
He said half of guests at Pearl Farm are Filipinos and the other half are foreign tourists. Two out of five foreign tourists in the resort are Koreans, most of them couples.
Pearl Farm is just 45 minutes by ferryboat from the wharf, near the modern Davao International Airport. Rocha said there are three trips to and from the resort daily.
Aside from Pearl Farm, Fuego Hotels and Properties also manages three world-class tourism destinations in Southern Luzon, namely: Taal Vista Hotel, Club Punta Fuego and Terrazas de Punta Fuego. PRESS RELEASE
